Assalamu ‘Alaikum,

Following our recent Umrah trip, I shall be compiling a list of places to visit in the holy lands based on some of the places that we visited, and others not visited but noted in the History Books.

The posts will form a photo of the place (if available) with a brief description of what it is and it’s virtues.

This will by no means form an exhaustive list or a detailed history, but will provide a brief snippet of the various historic sites. The main sources used are as follows:

A Guide to Visiting Makka and Madina by Shaykh Abdul Aziz Ahmed

History of Makkah by Darussalam Publishers

History of Madinah by Darussalam Publishers

Almiskeenah’s Blog

I hope this is of benefit to those of you looking to visit the blessed lands of Makkah and Madninah.

Once all the posts have been uploaded, a single post with all the places and links will be published insha Allah.

was Salam

Abu Zaynah
