Holy Places in Masjid Al-Haram.

Holy Places in Masjid Al-Haram.
The birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad is the spiritual center of Islam and is prohibited for non-Muslims. The pillars of Islam state that all Muslims who can afford it must make the pilgrimage to Makkah (Hajj) at least once in their lives. People traveling to this holy city are rewarded not only by the proximity of the historic and religious sites at the heart of this faith, such as the holy places in Masjid Al-Haram, the Mountain of Recognition, the Black Stone, the Maqam e Ebrahim and the Zamzam well but also by the forgiveness of all their sins.

Masjid Al-Haram.

The Great Mosque of Makkah, commonly known as al-Masjid al-Ḥarām, is a mosque that surrounds the Kaaba in the city of Makkah, in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia. Masjid Al-Haram is home to the Kaaba, one of the holiest sites in Islam and the direction of Muslim prayer, and therefore Makkah is considered the holiest city in Islam.

The Hajar Al-Aswad (Black Stone).

The Hajar al-Aswad (black stone), which is located in the eastern corner of the Kaaba. Tawaf begins and ends in front of this sacred stone. Through the ages, countless people, including many prophets (peace be upon them), the prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) himself, the Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them), pious personalities and millions of Muslims who have practiced Hajj and Umrah have placed their blessed lips on it.

Safa and Marwa.

Safa and Marwa are two small hills now located in the Great Mosque of Mecca, in the Hejazi region of Saudi Arabia. Muslims travel between them seven times, during the ritual pilgrimages of Ḥajj and ʿUmrah.

Maqam e Ebrahim.

Maqam E Ebrahim refers to the stone on which Ebrahim (peace be upon him) stood while he was building the Kaaba. As Ismail (peace be upon him) passed stones to Ebrahim (peace be upon him), and Ebrahim (peace be upon him) continued to pose them, Maqame Ebrahim miraculously continued to rise higher and higher as the walls rose. Allah (ﷻ) left the mark of his footprints on the stone to remind the believers among his descendants.

Zamzam Well.
