Alhamdulillah wasalatu wasalamu ala Rasulillah,
I visited Al-Madina AL- Munawara on 19/02/1433 (13/01/2012) for the third time in my whole life. I captured more than 250 photos during the visit. Following are some of the photos which I captured during this memorable journey. I will share more here or create a separate blog for them, Insha-Allah
Narrated Abu Humaid(radhiyallahu anhu): We came with the Prophet(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) from Tabuk, and when we reached near Madinah, the Prophet(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "This is Tabah(meaning the good one)." (Bukhari)
Narrated Abu Huraira(radhiyallahu anhu): Allah's Apostle said, "I was ordered to migrate to a town which will swallow (conquer) other towns and is called Yathrib and that is Madinah, and it turns out (bad) persons as a furnace removes the impurities of iron." (Bukhari)
Jaabir bin Samurah(radhiyallahu anhu) says; "I heard Rasulullah(sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) say: ' Verily Allah named Madinah, Taabah(meaning the good one) or Tayyibah(the pure)."
