Visiting the holiest site on earth, the tomb of the Pride of Creation (S)

Qadi `Iyad states in al-Shifa’, in the chapter on visiting the Prophet, the consensus of the Muslims whereby the site of the Prophet’s grave is the holiest site on earth.  The Prophet (S) is reported to have said, “Whoever visits me after my death, it is as if he visited me in my life” and, “Whosoever visits my grave, my intercession becomes guaranteed for him.”

Conveying salutations to the Pride of Creation (S)

Narrated Abu Huraira:  The Prophet(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, “There is a garden from the gardens of Paradise between my house and my pulpit, and my pulpit is on my Pool of Water (Al-Kawthar).” (Bukhari)

The Holy Prophet (S) is reported to have said: “Verily, I am leaving behind two precious things (thaqalayn) among you: the Book of Allah and my kindred (itrah), my household Ahlul Bayt (Ahl al-Bayt), for indeed, the two will never separate until they come back to me by the Pond (of al Kawthar on the Day of Judgement).”

Relics from Madina

The Valley of Jinn: On the outskirts of Madinah, 100miles from Khayber.  Visitors are prohibited from visiting this area after dark.  Automobiles at this area move on their own to high speeds without acceleration (or cruise control).  Our car reached 120km from zero without any acceleration by the driver and without cruise control or any other tricks.  This site is not on elevated ground, and there are only mountains and no population behind it.
