Blessed Madinah al-Munawwarah


Ánas bin Malik rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that the Master of Creation śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam,

O Allah! Grant Madinah twice the blessings that You granted to Makkah. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith 1885)

Saád bin Malik and Abu Hurayra rađiyAllāhu ánhuma narrates that the beloved Messenger śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

On every street of Madinah, there are two Angels protecting it. Plague and Dajjāl cannot enter this city and whoever casts an evil on this city, Allah subĥānahū wa táālā will dissolve him just as salt dissolves in water. (Musnad Ahmad, Hadith 1615)

Ábdullah ibn Úmar rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that the beloved Messenger of Allah śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

On the day of Qiyama, I will intercede for the one who visits my resting place. (Shúab al-Īmān, Ĥadith 1453)

Ábdullah ibn Úmar rađiyAllāhu ánhu narrates that our Master and Saviour śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

Whoever visits my (blessed) resting place, my intercession will be wājib for him.[1]

The Master of Creation śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam said,

What is between my house and my minbar is one of the gardens from the gardens of Jannah. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Ĥadīth 1195)

Imam Qādī Íyādh rađiyAllāhu ánhu beautifully states,

The blessed sand which had the honour of touching the blessed feet of the beloved Messenger of Allah śallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam, certainly, we must respect that blessed sand…and kiss the walls of the city of the Beloved. (ash-Shifá, vol. 2, pp. 46)

[1] It is declared sound (sahih) by Ibn al-Sakan in al-Sunan al-Sihah and Ábd al-Haqq al-Ishbili in al-Aĥkam, followed by Shaykh al-Islam al-Taqī al-Subkī in Shifá al-Siqām in view of the totality of the chains. Other ĥadith scholars who considered it authentic are Ibn Ĥajar’s student the ĥadith master al-Sakhāwī, the ĥadith master of Madina al-Munawwara al-Samhūdī, and Shaykh al-Islam al-Haytami in al-Jawhar al-Munazzam.
