Places to visit in Makkah

After the Hujjaj have completed their Hajj, they often like to visit places within the vicinity of Makkah and around it. Here is a list of places you can visit once you are done with your Hajj or Umrah.

1. Masjid Aisha

Located near the cave of Thaur, this is the second largest mosque in Makkah. People often renew their Ihram here.

2. Jabal Al Rahma

This is the hill from where the Prophet (PBUH) delivered his last sermon to his Ummah. It is fascinating to stand at the very spot where the Prophet (PBUH) stood several centuries ago.

3. Jannat Al-Mualla

Also known as Al-Hajun, it is the second holiest graveyard after Jannat ul-Baqi. Many of the Prophet’s (PBUH) close relatives are buried here.

4. Jabal Nur

The Cave of Hira is located atop this Mount. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received his first revelation in the Cave of Hira. He frequently meditated in this cave.

5. Cave of Thaur

When the Prophet (PBUH) was migrating to Madinah, he hid inside this cave from his enemies as a spider wove a web at the entrance of the cave, misleading the people of Makkah into thinking that there was no one present inside the cave.

6. Birthplace of the Prophet (PBUH)

Currently, it has been converted into the National Library of Makkah, also known as Maktaba Makkah al-Mukarramah.

7. Masjid Jinn

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) recited Quran in this mosque and upon hearing his voice troops of Jinn came in, wanting to hear more of his recitation.

8. Masjid Bilal

Bilal ibn Rabah, the first Muezzin of Islam, resided here. His residence was later converted into a mosque.

9. Masjid Al Khayf

It is located near Mina. Several prophets, including Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), performed Salah here.

It can be very overwhelming to see these places in reality as they take us back to the advent of Islam, giving us a closer look into Islamic history.
