THE HOUSE OUR PROPHET WAS BORN

Our beloved prophet, who was sent as a mercy to the worlds, honored the world in the house that is currently used as a library in Mecca, at dawn on the 12th Monday night of Rabiu-l Awwal, which fell on the 20th of April in the year 571 AD. Located in the Abu Talib neighborhood, this house was built by the Prophet’s great-grandfather, Hashim b. It belonged to Abdulmanaf. The house, inherited by his son Abdulmuttalib upon his death, fell to Abdullah when Abdulmuttalib was dividing his property among his children, and it was passed on to the Prophet Muhammad (SAV). During the Migration of the Prophet, this blessed house was built by Hz. He handed it over to Akil bin Abi Talib, brother of our Master Ali. Our Prophet did not claim any right in this after he migrated to Medina, and he did not use this house when he came to Mecca. When Akil’s grandchildren sold it to Hajjaj’s brother Mohammed bin Yusuf es-Sakafi, Mohammed bin Yusuf added it to his mansion called Beyza. This household was called by the name of Muhammad bin Yusuf al-Sakafi for a while. Later, Zübeyde Hanım, the wife of Harun Reşid, bought this place and turned it into a mosque. From now on, he found fame with the name Mevlid-i Nebi (the place where Nebi was born). The mosque in question was rebuilt during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent (964-1557). There was an empty dome inside this mosque and it was known as the birthplace of the Prophet. After passing under the Saudi administration, the mosque was transformed into its present form. (Quran Atlas, p, 387) This house, which is right across the sa’y place between today’s Safa and Merve hills, close to the entrance of the tunnel that goes to Mina and Aziziye, It has been used as a Mecca library since 1379 (1959). Other blessed houses were demolished with the expansion of the Masjid al-Haram and included in the Masjid-i Haram, and some of them joined the bazaars and roads. Visiting that blessed place where the Messenger of Allah was born and where many wonderful events took place and saying salutations to him would certainly be a means of mercy and intercession. When our Prophet’s mother died when he was six years old, he was taken under the protection of his grandfather Abdulmuttalib. When his grandfather died when he was eight years old, his uncle Abu Talib took him under his protection. Hz. When Khadija married our mother, she moved from Abu Talib’s house, where she had stayed with her before, to her husband’s house. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392) Visiting that blessed place where the Messenger of Allah was born and where many wonderful events took place and saying salutations to him would certainly be a means of mercy and intercession. When our Prophet’s mother died when he was six years old, he was taken under the protection of his grandfather Abdulmuttalib. When his grandfather died when he was eight years old, his uncle Abu Talib took him under his protection. Hz. When Khadija married our mother, she moved from Abu Talib’s house, where she had stayed with her before, to her husband’s house. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392) Visiting that blessed place where the Messenger of Allah was born and where many wonderful events took place and saying salutations to him would certainly be a means of mercy and intercession. When our Prophet’s mother died when he was six years old, he was taken under the protection of his grandfather Abdulmuttalib. When his grandfather died when he was eight years old, his uncle Abu Talib took him under his protection. Hz. When Khadija married our mother, she moved from Abu Talib’s house, where she had stayed with her before, to her husband’s house. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392) She moved from Abu Talib’s house, where she had previously stayed with her, to her husband’s house. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392) She moved from Abu Talib’s house, where she had previously stayed with her, to her husband’s house. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392) THE HOUSE OF EBU TALIB The house  of Abu Talib, Hz. It was between the house where the Prophet was born and Abu Kubeys Hill. Hz. Ali was also born here. Previously, there was a mosque built to commemorate this. Now it has been completely demolished and turned into a garage for pilgrimage buses. (Atlas of the Qur’an, p, 392)
