Makkah Sightseeing Standard








Jable Sor


Jabal-e-Soor, part of the mountainous embrace around the valley of Makkah, holds historical significance. In a cave here, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his companion Abu Bakr (RA) sought refuge for three days from the Quraish tribe. Allah (SWT) protected them by having a spider weave a web at the cave's entrance, concealing them from their enemies. Soor Cave has evolved into a symbol of faith and hope, illustrating the divine protection during challenging times.





Al-Rajhi Mosque


Aisha Al-Rajhi Mosque, located in Makkah Al Mukarramah, stands out as one of the city's most renowned landmarks. It is regarded as one of the largest and most well-known mosques in the area and is under the ownership of the Suleiman bin Abdulaziz Al-Rajhi Endowment Company, affiliated with the Suleiman Al-Rajhi Endowment Company. The mosque, which can accommodate over 47 thousand worshipers, was inaugurated on Shaaban 22, 1434 AH, and the opening ceremony was graced by the presence of Prince Khaled Al-Faisal, the Emir of Makkah Al-Mukarramah region.

Arafat



Jable Rehmat


Known as Jabal ar-Rahmah, Mount Arafat in southeast Makkah, Saudi Arabia, holds great significance for Muslims. Pilgrims leave Mina to stand in the contemplative vigil and prayer, reciting the Holy Quran. It was here that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) delivered his last sermon. The standing at Arafat is the only Hajj ritual that is performed outside the Holy Kaaba, and it is believed that prayers at Arafat are answered and that this is where Allah SWT fulfills them. For the pilgrims reaching Arafat, there is an immense sense of fulfillment in their Hajj journey.


Hazrat Aisha (RA) said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “There is no day on which Allah frees more people from the Fire than the day of Arafat. He comes close and expresses His pride to the angels, saying, ‘What do these people want?’” [Muslim]





Masjid Al Nimra


Located in the valley of Arafat, Masjid Namirah is recognized as the place where Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) rested before delivering the final sermon in Arafat. The mosque has significant importance during the Hajj pilgrimage as it is the place where the pilgrims are addressed and khutbas are delivered to pilgrims on the Day of Arafah during the Dhuhr and Asr prayers. is located just 300 metres from Mount Arafat. Masjid al-Namirah is only open during the Hajj and is closed all year






Nehr Zubaida


‘Ain Zubaydah (also spelled as Ayn Zubaida) has quenched the thirst of Makkah and its holy sites for approximately 1,200 years. A major restoration effort was undertaken only 90 years ago — in 1928 AD — during the reign of King Abdul Aziz, the founder of the current kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The restoration project was the last major effort for the climate-sensitive and earthquake-prone project of the saintly Queen Zubaydah. Only parts of the original ‘Ain Zubaydah channel, consisting of dozens of underground and overground water channels and about a dozen reservoirs, still exist.




As some parts have been renovated with literary precision others have been transformed into piles of rubble by the actions of the British or the bulldozer. The Nehr-e Zubaida, spread over 35 kilometers, is a silent witness to its 12 centuries at the service of the sanctified masses.



Muzdalifah


Muzdalifah, an extensive area southeast of Mina, is where the route from Mina to Arafat meets. At sunset on the 9th Dhul Hijjah, (the second day of Hajj), from Arafat, the pilgrims arrive and spend the night in Muzdalifah, from the Valley of Muhassar right up to the mountains of Ma`zamayn, an area of 12.25 sq. km with a length of four km. It is from here that the farewell Hajj began.




Allah (SWT) mentions in Surah Baqarah in the Quran:“When you leave Arafat, then remember Allah at the Mash’arul Haram.” (‘The Sacred Monument’, referring to Muzdalifah according to Abdullah bin Umar (RA)



Mosque Mashrul Haram


The Prophet (PBUH) performed Maghrib and Isha prayers here in this sacred space together, during the farewell Hajj. He stayed on the Mash’arul Haram (towards the Qibla side) part of the land, where Masjid Mash’arul Haram stands today. His stay was also obligatory, where Maghrib has to be combined with Isha during Hajj at Isha time here. Wuqoof (stay in Muzdalifah) is Waajib during Hajj, which commences from sub’h saadiq (White dawn) and continues up to sunrise. Wuqoof is discharged even if a very brief time is spent; but it is Mustahab (preferred) to remain until just before sunrise.






Mina


It is located about 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the east of Masjid al-Haram in Makkah from Makkah in the eastern direction and is a valley surrounded by mountains. When it comes to historical Islamic landmarks, Mina is known primarily for the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah when pilgrims from all over the world pass the nights of 8th, 11th and 12th Dhul Hijjah in Mina. Sometimes even the night of 13th Dhul Hijjah as well. The significance of Mina Hajj is due to the stoning ritual, as it’s the location of the three stone pillars of the Jamarat.






Mina View Point and Vadi E Misar


Wadi e Masar is the place where the army of Najjashi Led by Abraha was destroyed by the birds with the will of Allah. The Year of the Elephant (Amul-Fil) marks the significant incident of Abraha's attempt to attack Makkah in 570 CE. Abraha, the Christian ruler of the Kingdom of Aksum, sought to destroy the Kaaba, prompted by his desire to divert pilgrims from the sacred site to his cathedral in Yemen. Using an elephant, Mahmud, as a military asset, Abraha's forces were miraculously thwarted by birds carrying stones, as mentioned in Surah Al-Fil (Chapter 105) of the Quran. This divine intervention protected the sanctity of the Kaaba, emphasizing its significance in Islamic history. The event, occurring five years before Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) birth, is seen as a testament to the divine safeguarding of Makkah and holds a pivotal place in the historical context of the Prophet's (PBUH) era.






Masjid Al Khaif


Based on several documented hadith and narrations, Masjid Al Khayf is the place where 70 prophets, including Prophet Musa (AS) and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), had performed Salah, hence giving it the name “Mosque of the Prophets.” It is also where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) delivered one of his speeches while performing the final Hajj (Hajjat al-Wada). 






Jamrat


Jamrat al-Aqaba, also known as Jamrat al-Kubra, referred to as "the big pillar" in Arabic, is one of the three pillars where Hajj pilgrims perform the ritual of Rami, casting pebbles during Yawm al-Nahr and Ayyam al-Tashreeq. This Stoning of the Devil ceremony is an integral part of the Hajj. Positioned as the final pillar from the direction of Mina, Jamrat al-Aqaba is exclusively open during the Hajj period.






Jable Noor


Jable Noor Also known as Jabal al-Hira (the Mountain of Light) and Jabal al-Islam (the Mountain of Islam), this mountain holds a central place in Islamic history. Jabal al-Hira, situated approximately two miles from the Ka'bah, hosts the Cave of Hira near its summit. This small cave, measuring less than 4 meters in length and just over 1.5 meters in width, is of great historical significance. It was within this cave that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received the initial revelations of the Holy Quran during the month of Ramadan in 610 CE.






Jannat Ul Maula


Before Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) migration in 622, numerous relatives found their resting place in this cemetery. Jannatul Mualla houses the graves of notable figures who played significant roles in the service of Islam, such as Hazrat Khadija (RA) (the Prophet's first wife), Hazrat Abu Talib, and Hazrat Abdul Mutallib (Prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) grandfather). Hazrat Abu Talib and Hazrat Khadijah (RA) marked the concluding interments of prominent personalities in Jannatul Mualla before the establishment of Jannat al-Baqi in Madinah, which later became the preferred burial ground.






Masjid E Jinn


Situated in close proximity to the Jannat al-Mu’alla graveyard, Masjid Al Jinn holds distinction as one of the oldest and most significant mosques in Makkah. It is erected at the location where Jinns, beings created from fire and unseen to the human eye, are believed to have assembled to listen to the recitation of the Holy Quran by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and embraced Islam. Recognized for its Islamic importance, Masjid Al Jinn is also referred to as the Mosque of Guards and the Mosque of Allegiance (Masjid al-Bayah).






Masjid E Shajar


Masjid Shajarah means ‘Masjid of the tree’ and is located opposite Masjid al-Jinn. It marks the spot from where the Prophet (PBUH) called a tree and it came to him. Note that this masjid is not to be confused with the masjid in Dhul Hulayfah which is sometimes referred to by the same name.






Masjid E Fatah


The Al-Fatah Mosque stands at the historic Battle of Ahzab site, facing west. Positioned on a small cliff, this mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia, holds significant popularity as one of the city's frequently visited places of worship. According to accounts, the mosque derives its name, "Al-Fath," from the Prophet's prayers during the Battle of the Trench, where Muslims emerged victorious, marking a crucial moment in history.
