Have you been to Madinah?
Do you love the city of the Prophet, peace be upon him?
In this brief recording, Dr. Yasir Qadhi on his recent visit there shares his personal reflections.
“We are now standing on one of the minarets of the Haram, and Al-Hamdulel-Allah you can see the view here is absolutely amazing.
We actually have a full moon as well, Al-Hamdulel-Allah.
The sun is coming up and we see this beautiful view.
What a beautiful city this is.
Our Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, praised Madinah, and the reason why everyone of us loves Madinah is that the Prophet, peace be upon him, made a special du’aa to Allah (SWT).
He said in that famous hadith recorded in Sahih Al-Bukhari:
“O Allah, cause all of us to love Madinah like we used to love Makkah, and even more than our love for Makkah.” (Al-Bukhari, Chapter 12)
So our Prophet, peace be upon him, made a du’aa to Allah that all Muslims should love Madinah, and Al-Hamdulel-Allah every single Muslim in the world has this special love coming to the city of the Prophet, peace be upon him.
Makkah is indeed grand. Makkah is indeed majestic.
But there is no denying that the peace and the sakinah that a person feels, coming to the city of the Prophet, peace be upon him, is simply unparalleled.
