Masjid-e-Nabwi is the Holy masjid established by the Prophet (peace and blessings of ALLAH Almighty be on him) upon His migration from Makkah to Madina. Prophet (PBUH) did not have any residence in that city. When the Prophet (peace and blessings of ALLAH Almighty be on him) migrated to Madina, the chiefs of the city and his followers rode around His camel in their good clothes and in splendid armour. Everyone there was hoping Prophet (PBUH) would stop by their house. The camel moved on with slackened reins and reaches the site of the present masjid and then knelt down. The land contained a few graves, date trees of polytheists and a resting point for herds of cattle and was owned by two brothers who were orphan, Sahl and Suhail. Finally, Prophet (PBUH) stopped permanently at a place where the
Masjid-e-Nabwi, was formed. In Islam, It is the second most sacred masjid and the second largest masjid in the world, after Masjid-ul-Haram in holy city Makkah.
Millions of Muslims from all around the world visit this beautiful masjid every year to perform namaz, as it is the symbol of Muslim’s emotional attachment with the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The original structure of masjid was very simple, which had the roof covering with straw, walls by using date branches, and pillars made up of supportive tree trunks and floor with bare sand. Its interior and appearance have been restructured so many times over the past centuries to have a huge room for maximum number of lovers of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to perform namaz at a time. Following are discussing some of the facts about it:
Impact of As-Suffah
The location of suffah in Masjid-e-Nabwi is towards the front of the present Masjid-e-Nabwi, of the platform that housed the Ashab us-Suffah. This platform was originally on the north wall of the Masjid-eNabwi and when the masjid was extended in 7 AH it was moved back. In the initial years, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) allocated a separate place with cool shelter right along with the wall located on North side of masjid. It was meant to build for spending and resting night especially for the passengers and for those people who could not go anywhere else, it shows the humbleness and kindness and actual teachings of Islam related to masjid. The name Suffah means “companion” or sahaba, those sacrificing and selfless Muslims who had devoted their lives for Islam.
Sacred chamber (hujrah) of the Prophet (PBUH)
Hujrah (the sacred chamber) is situated just outside main masjid and has a golden vault in front of it. It was in actual the house of His most beloved wife Hazrat Ayesha (R.A) at that time.
