Hajis at Prophet’s Mosque in Medina…

Hajis who have fulfilled their Hajj duty at the holy lands have started moving to Medina to pay a visit to the Masjid Nebevi which houses the grave of our Prophet while others have started returning home in groups. Millions of Hajis who have converged in Mecca from all over the world are now starting to depart. Those who arrived in the holy lands and visited Medina first are now returning to their respective homelands while those who came to Mecca first and completed Haj are now travelling to Medina. The Hajis who are now in Medina are visiting the Mosque of Kibleteyn, the Mosque of Kuba and Cuma as well as the graveyards where hundreds of the companions of the Prophet are resting as well as the Martyr’s Cemetery in Uhud besides their visits to the Prophet’s Mosque and his grave around which many of his companions also buried. The Hajis try to pray five times a day performing salaat near the Prophet’s grave in Medina.
