Rare pictures of the blessed resting place of our beloved prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Friday 25th May, 2007

I received a magazine last week which reminded me that i should have written about this ages ago. On the cover of this magazine it highlights the issue of pictures of the actual grave of our beloved صلي الله عليه و سلم.

The following two pictures are widely circulated, as being pictures of the blessed resting place of our master sayyidina muhammad صلي الله عليه و سلم , in Al-Madina Ash-Sharif.

This (on the right) is a picture of the mazar of sufi shaykh Jalal Uddin Rumi (ra)


These two pictures are being passed off as the roza mubarak of our master صلي الله عليه و سلم . Please beware of this deception, as many are making money out of this. Those that genuinely believed it to be what they thought it was should re-evaluate their information and put it right. Inshallah.

Sultan Nuruddin Zanki had built a wall around the three graves in 558AH made out of lead and copper and closed the holy chambers so that no one can have access to it. so, how can there be any camera photos.? or artist pictures as no one has entered the chamber for almost a thousand years.

    I have heard of people who have went inside the chambers to see the blessed tomb of the Prophet (salalahualaihiwasalam). Like my eight or nine year old cousin who went hajj, was aloud in to see the blessed grave, because the person who was cleaning or doing some sort of job early in the morning just allowed him to go in. And I also have heard some huffaz who were invited by king Fahd to Saudi Arabia were allowed to go in and see the blessed grave of our Master (salalahualaihiwasalam).

    Abd Al Mustafa: Jazakallah Khayr for that bit of info.

    there is a possibility that the picture on the left may be a drawing of the actual roza mubarak, but as for the exact reprsentation in the drawing i couldn’t comment on that.

  3. I have just returned from the blessed lands. I specifically tried my best to see through the grill/gates of the blessed roza mubarak, and can say that all i saw was a solid wall behind the gates. On the wall was calligraphy in the same style as on the cloth of the kaba but in green (i think it might’ve been a gilaaf [cloth] over the wall). Near the top of the blessed wall was writing in red, couldn’t make out what was written but presumed it said rasoolullah (saw). so, i think my original info has a bit of truth behind it in a way.

    I have haerd that the picture of the right is the shrine of Mawlana Jalal ad-din Rumi?

    The picture on the right is that of the grave of Maulana Rumi (r). The picture on the left is a painting. O Muslims, beware of this. O Allah, forgive us and forgive our brother muslims and grant us jannat ul firdous. Aameen.

    Assalamu Alaikum,

    How was it possible to see the blessed tomb of the Sweet Beloved Prophet (Salal Lahu Ta’ala Alaihi Wa Salam) when it is completely sealed?

    The Ottoman Empire sealed it because some crazy people tried to do some crazy things.

    [Abd Al Mustafa] – you talking to me..??? 🙂

  7. from my recent visit to al rawdha al-mubarak of our beloved master (صلي الله عليه و سلم ), i have to say now that it is possible to see three graves behind the jaali mubarak. if one looks through the first gate as i did, you can clearly see three different graves, all covered in the green gilaf. i am now starting to think that what is meant by the the three graves being sealed is the actual walls around the whole of the rawdha (the actual house/hujrah mubarak of our master صلي الله عليه و سلم ) and not just the graves.

    may be the reason why i couldn’t see much last time was becoz i was looking through the middle gates, but this time i looked from the front and could see three seperate graves. alhamdulillah, it was a great experience and somehow the najdies for some reason didn’t seem to say anything when i was taking my time trying to get a good look even though they were man handling others for doing the same thing. allahu wa rasulu alam.

    Brothers, when we visit the Rowdah mubarak, first the resting place of our beloved Prophet صلي الله عليه و سلم comes, next is the resting place of Sayedna Abu Bakar followed by that of Sayedena Omer (radita’la anha). However the picture on left seems to depict the smaller grave on the left (i.e in reverse order), ofcourse assuming the headboard is marked by the raised pole and turban style cover on both. How can the two facts be corroborated?

    [Abd Al Mustafa] – many people have been posting in recently making similar comments. one guy even made serious slanderous comments……… i say this, before u start posting any comments plz read the post completely, from begin to end. this way u will realise that this post is informing the muslims that these pictures are NOT of the holy rowda mubarak of the holy prophet (saw). if ur english is weak plz do not post any comments unless u knw that u have fully understood the post…………jzk!
