MEDINA-İ MÜNEVVERE

Medina-i Münevvere is the homeland of the Prophet’s emigration.

It is the first capital city of the Islamic state . It is the city
where the religious believer sent envoys to foreign countries to convey Islam and invited them to Islam.
It is the most blessed city after Mecca.
It is the place where more than half of the Quran was downloaded.

That radiant city;

Hâtemül Enbiya is there, there is no distance with those who come to his presence . In between
, two martyrs, two martyrs, the Messenger of Allah’s friends in this world and in the hereafter. Abu Bakr and Hz. Omar is there,
the window of the world that opens to the hereafter, the garden of paradise (Ravza-i Mutahhara) is there. (There is no other place on earth that is declared to be from Paradise except Ravza-i Mutahhara.)
“Cennetu-l Baki”, where 10 thousand Companions, especially Hz Osman (ra), are buried, is there
. Mount Uhud, which will illuminate the eyes looking at him with the 70 martyrs where Hamza is located , is there, the “Masjid-i Qiblatayn” where
our Qibla changed, there is the “Masjid-i Quba” and “Seven Masjids” built on taqwa.

How can one not shed tears and be neglected here? There is an agreement that Mecca-i Mükerreme and Medina-i Münevvere are superior to all cities.

 

The Prophet says:

ألمدينة قبة الاسلام ودارالإيمان وأرض الهجرة ومثوى الحلال والحرام
“Medina is the dome of Islam, the home of faith, the place of migration, the place where halal and haram are explained.” (Tergib, 2/228)

 

من إستطاع أن يموت بالمدينة فليمت بها فإنى أشفع لمن يموت بها
“Whoever can afford to die in Madinah, let him die there, surely I will intercede for those who died here.” (Tergib, 2/223)

 

Respect and respect are needed for Medina-i Münevvere. There is superiority and excess in both the welfare of the worships performed here and the rewards bestowed as a result. It is makruh to reside in Mecca-i Mükarreme and Medina-i Münevvere for those who cannot trust their souls and obey the rights and manners of that place. (Lübab Commentary, p.351)

When Imam-i Malik (ra) entered Medina, he refused to ride the mule, saying, “It is not appropriate for me to trample on a place on which the Messenger of Allah stepped with his blessed feet,” even though he had an excuse that he could not walk when they brought a mule to ride. reached his presence with difficulty.

 
Poet Nabi goes on a pilgrimage with a delegation. When they approached Medina-i Münevvere, they saw a pasha in the delegation lying down and read the following couplet out loud:
 

Do not! This is the gûyi mahbub-i Hüda from abandonment of adab.
This is the Divine Nazargah, the maqam-i Mustafâ.
It is the habgah of Habib-i kibriyâ in virtue, this is the
Tefevvügu kerde-i ar-i cenâb-i kibriyâ.
On the condition of good manners, Nâbi enter this dervish
lodge, it is Metaf-i kudsiyan, this is Bûsegâh-i enbiyâ.

Meaning:

Beware of rudeness when entering the land of our Prophet.
Because this is the Nazargâh-i Divine, Makâm-i Mustafâ.
This station is where Habib-i Kibriyâ rests.
He is even above the Throne in terms of virtue.
O Nabi, enter this lodge with good manners. Because here;
It is the place where the anbiya is exposed and the spirituality circumambulates.

 

In the morning, when they see the muezzins saying these couplets
from the minarets, they ask: From whom did you learn these couplets? They answer: “Tonight, our Lord taught us these couplets and ordered us to sing from the minarets.”
Our ancestors showed great respect to this blessed place: During the construction of the Hejaz Railway, His Excellency Abdulhamid Han gave the following instruction (as an expression of respect and respect) to the team that built the railway: “When you approach Medina-i Münevvere, wrap felt on the tools that are possible so that there is not too much noise.
Let the souls of our Prophet, Ahl al-Bayt and those living here not be disturbed.”
O bad-i sabâ, if he stops by, you are on your way to the district-i Haramayn, with my apologies to the Messenger of Allah.
