Medina likewise transliterated as Madīnah, is the capital of the Al-Madinah Region in Saudi Arabia. At the city’s heart is al-Masjid a Nabawi (‘The Prophet’s Mosque’), which is the internment spot of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad. Medina is one of the two holiest urban areas in Islam, the other being Mecca.
Medina was Muhammad’s goal of his Hijrah (relocation) from Mecca, and turned into the capital of a quickly expanding Muslim Empire, under Muhammad’s authority, filling in as the power base of Islam, and where Muhammad’s Ummah (Community), made out of the two local people and outsiders from Muhammad’s unique home of Mecca, created. Medina is home to three conspicuous mosques, in particular al-Masjid a Nabawi, Quba Mosque, and Masjid al-Qiblatayn (‘The mosque of the two Qiblas’). Muslims accept that the sequentially last surahs of the Quran were uncovered to Muhammad in Medina, and are called Medinan surahs rather than the prior Meccan surahs.
