The Holiest Place on Earth

December 22, 2018 No Comments »

Qadi `Iyad, Allah sanctify his secrets, said:

“The consensus of the Muslims whereby we agree upon, is that we believe that the site of the Prophet’s grave is the holiest place on earth.”

~ Reference: Kitab as-Shifa ~ The Chapter on Visiting the Prophet, Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him, his Family and Companions

~ Also related by Imam an-Nawawi in his Sharh Sahih Muslim 6:101 and al-Majmu` Sharh al-Muhadhdhab 7:444

Mulla Ali al-Qari al-Hanafi, Allah have Mercy upon him, explains:

“There is no doubt that Mecca, among the highly venerated sanctuaries, is preferable to Madinah itself in general, except for the mound of the Prophet’s grave, which is mercy and tranquillity: for it is better than the Kaba’ or rather, better than the Throne itself according to a large group of the scholars.”

~ Sharh Kitab as-Shifa – The Explanation of the Shifa of Qadi Iyad

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذِي مَلْاتَ قَلْبَهُ مِنْ جَلاَلِكَ وَعَيْنَهُ مِنْ
جَمَالِكَ فَأَصْبَحَ فَرِحًا مُوَيَّدًا مَنْصُورًا وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَسْلِيمًا وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
عَلَى ذَلِكَ
