Description

Makkah Province (Pass By): Makkah is a city in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia. The city is located 70 km inland from Jeddah, 340 kilometers south of Medina. It is the birthplace of our Profit Muhammad (PBUH). Makkah is home to the Kaaba, one of Islam's holiest sites and the direction of Muslim prayer, and thus Makkah is regarded as the holiest city in Islam. In this 2-3 hours tour, we will cover all the Holy places of Makkah starting from Masjid-e-Nimra Mina: Mina, seven kilometers east of the Masjid al-Haram is where Hajj pilgrims sleep overnight on the 8th, 11th, 12th (and some even on the 13th) of Dhul Hijjah. It contains the Jamarat, the three stone pillars which are pelted by pilgrims as part of the rituals of Hajj. Jabal-e-Rehmat: Also known as Jabal-Ar-Rahmah or the Mount of Mercy, Mount Arafat is a hill in the valley of Arafat outside Makkah where the Prophet (PBUH) gave his last sermon after completing Hajj. It is mandatory for pilgrims to leave Mina and reach Mount Arafat on the 9th of Dhu’al Hijjah and spend the day praying, doing Dhik’r, and asking for forgiveness from Allah (SWT). Muzdalifa Muzdalifah: ( مُزْدَلِفَة‎) is an open, level area near Mecca in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia that is associated with the Ḥajj ('Pilgrimage'). It lies just southeast of Mina, on the route between Mina and Arafat. The stay at Muzdalifah is preceded by a day at Arafat, consisting of glorifying Allāh repeating the Dua, repentance to Allah, and asking Him for forgiveness. At Arafat, Ẓuhr and ʿAṣr prayers are performed in a combined and abbreviated form during the time of Zuhr. After sunset on the ninth day of the Islamic month of Dhūl-Ḥijjah, Muslim pilgrims travel to Muzdalifah, sometimes arriving at night because of over-crowding. After arriving at Muzdalifah, pilgrims pray the Maghrib and ʿIshāʾ prayers jointly, whereas the Isha prayer is shortened to 2 rakats. Thowr Mountain: Mount Thawr (or Jabal Thawr) is the mountain that contains the cave in which the Prophet (ﷺ) and Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) sought refuge for three days and nights from the Quraysh, as they left Makkah and emigrated to Madinah. After Jabal Thawar our Last Attraction will be Canal Sakeena. Jabal al-Nour: Mount Hira (Jabal Hira), which lies about two miles from the Ka’bah. Near the top is a small cave, a little less than 4 meters in length and a little more than one and a half meters in width. It was here that the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) received the first revelations of the Holy Quran during the month of Ramadhan in 610 CE. The mountain is also known as Jabal Noor (the Mountain of Light). Jinn Masjid: Masjid Jinn, also known as Masjid Haras, is built on the place where the Prophet (ﷺ) drew a line for Abdullah bin Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him) who had accompanied him after he had been commanded to recite the Qur’an to the Jinn. After Masjid Jinn our guide will go towards Masjid-e- Shajar, Masjid-e-Qamar, and Jannat-al-Moulla.
