Worshippers doing tawaf around the Ka'ba and praying inside the Hateem areaThe hateem is a part of the Ka'ba, the walls of the Ka'ba used to be where the walls of the Hateem is now.

The first man on earth - Prophet Adam (as) - first built the Kaaba. He (as) was told by Allah to build it "benath" Allah's throne, i.e. the throne of Allah is "above" the Kaba. However, the throne is symbolic in its nature as Allah is not a physical being that needs to rule from a throne. During time, the Kaba was destroyed and it was later re-built by the Prophets Ibrahim (as) and his son Ismail (as).

Before the time of prophet Muhammad (pbuh), pagans worshipped at Kaaba, as they used to have their idol gods within the Kaba) until prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his followers conquested Makkah in a peaceful manner without any blood shed. Since then it has since been a place of worship for Muslims.

Muslims from all over the world face the Kaba when they pray their five daily prayers. Also, many travel to Makkah for the Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) or the Hajj (annual pilgrimage). The Hajj is compulsory on every Muslim to do once in their lifetime, if he or she have the financial and medical means for it. One of the rites of the pilgrimage is tawaf - to circumambulate the Kaba counter clock wise. One tawaf is 7 rounds, and is one of the two main rituals of the Umrah

Masjid al Nabawi in daylightThe Mosque of the Prophet (Masjid al Nabawi) is the second holiest mosque, after the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca. It is the second mosque to be founded by the Prophet Muhammed (saws), the first was Masjid Al-Quba. It was originally built by the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) and his companions and has later been extended several times by his followers.

The Mosque of the Prophet (pbuh) became his resting place after his death. The last Prophet's (pbuh) resting place is beneath the green dome. The first caliph, hadrath Abu Bakr Siddiq (ra), and the second caliph, hadrath Umar ibn Al Khattab (ra) are both also resting here. It contains a fourth grave as well, which is reserved for hadrat Isa / Jesus (as), when his time is up after his return to the earth.

The Prophet's (pbuh) lived where the dome is today after the Hijrah. The Rawdah - the area between his house and the original mihrab is a part of Jannah - paradise, according to a saying (hadith) of the Prophet (pbuh). He said: "What is between my house and my minbar is a garden from the gardens of Paradise". It is extremely crowded here - often hours before the prayer time, as it is every worshipper's desire to pray here. The area holds only a few hundered worshippers - maybe up to a thousand.

The part of the mosque which currently surrounds the green dome has been expanded several times during different times. It therefore contains architecture of different styles. The other parts are of newer extensions, and they look quite similar.

The rock inside the Dome of the RockThis picture shows the actual rock which the mosque the Dome of the Rock is build around. There is no place for prayers just beneath the dome of this mosque, as the rock surfaces the area. The structure at the left is built upon the area of the rock where the Prophet (saws) put his foot on, to climb the animal "Buraq".33333

People at the Lava tractsThe 1st Jumadi al-Thani, 654 A.H. (approx 5th of June 1256 A.D.), weak earth tremors were felt in Madinah. The tremors increased each day. A strong earthquake rocked Madinah on the 6th day.

The quake was caused by basaltic magma, welling up through cracks in the 40-kilometer thick crust of the Arabian Peninsula. It was followed by fiery volcanic eruptions for 52 days and spewed lava and ash from a massive fissure (20 km) southeast of Madinah. The lava flowed for 23 kilometers and threatened Madinah, which is in the lowlands, itself. The lava eventually reached within 8 km of the city. The light from the lava illuminated the night to the point that it was almost as bright as day.

The residents of Madinah gathered at the Prophet�s (pbuh) mosque to pray to Allah to stop this impending doom. By the dominion and power of Allah, the lava flow was diverted away from Madinah thus averting its complete distruction.

This volcanic erruption from Harrat Rahat is one of the signs of the day of Judgement.
Narrated Abu Hurairah (RA), "The Hour will not be established till a fire will come out of the land of Hijaz, and it will throw light on the necks of the camels at Busra." Various reports tells of how the Bedouins saw the necks of their camels and the light was enough to read by in places as far away as a five day journey!
The lava tracts cover an area from north to south of about 310 km, and it has a width of about 75 km. It is a veritable wasteland; nothing grows or lives there, just mounds of jagged, black rock as far as the eyes can see.

Masjid Al Haram packed with worshippers doring tawaf around the Ka'ba and gather at Makam IbrahimThe Makam Ibrahim contains the footprints of Ibrahim (as). They are from the time when he rebuilt the Kaba with his son.

The first man on earth - Prophet Adam (as) - first built the Kaaba. He (as) was told by Allah to build it "benath" Allah's throne, i.e. the throne of Allah is "above" the Kaba. However, the throne is symbolic in its nature as Allah is not a physical being that needs to rule from a throne.
