Question

A person wants to visit the Prophetic Mosque Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah and he is in Makkah. Thus he asks is that permissible?

Answer

It is permissible for the Muslim to travel to Al-Madinah to pray in the Prophetic Mosque. Actually, it is recommended, because the prayer in it is worth 1,000 prayers in any other place except the Sacred Mosque (Al-Masjid Al-Haram in Makkah). If he is in Makkah, his prayer in the Sacred Mosque is better than his traveling to pray in the Prophetic Mosque. This is because the prayer in the Sacred Mosque is worth 100,000 prayers in any other place (besides the Prophet's Mosque in Al-Madinah). It is not permissible for him to travel to Al-Madinah in order to visit the Prophet's (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) grave or other graves. This is due to what is confirmed from the Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) that he said:

"Do not undertake a (religious) journey except to three Mosques:
The Sacred Mosque (in Makkah), this mosque of mine (in Al-Madinah), and Al-Masjid AI-Aqsa (in Jerusalem)." (Al-Bukhari 1189)


This Hadith was recorded by Imam Ahmad, AI-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah. May blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions.
