Umroh - Madinah - 1

20 May 2013 - Mosque of the Prophet

Jakarta  25  June   2013   

      We visit Al-Masjid al-Nabawī, Mosque of the Prophet. Duncan is taken by our guide Abdullah, to see Muhammad's Tomb. Women are not allowed to view it. The Prophet Muhammad died around noon on Monday June 8, in the year 632, in Madinah. He fell ill 10 days earlier and most likely died of bacterial meningitis, a disease that was known throughout the Middle East since the start of recorded history. He was 63 years old.
