Create an itinerary including Al Masjid an Nabawi
Built on the site of the Prophet Muhammad's second mosque after his move to the city in 622 CE, Al Masjid an Nabawi is one of the holiest sites in Islam and a major destination for religious pilgrimage. Originally an open-air structure that contained a house of worship, court, school, and community center, the mosque has expanded and now includes a vast marble courtyard, white walls enclosing massive prayer rooms, several spindly minarets, and a large green dome over the tomb of the Prophet. Dress modestly and look closely at the design details for secret symbols inserted by the architects.

  • Serenity can be defined by this place. The soul has a calming effect upon just viewing this mosque so you can imagine what it would be like once you enter. People are praying Quran 24/7 in this...

  • It was the best spiritual experience I ever had. Love this place more than everything in the world. Best management, highly disciplined, love spread everywhere. Centrally located with a network of hotels, shops, restaurant and necessity and convenience stores around. Peaceful, loving and caring. Love ❤️❤️❤️ you.
  • Love Medina - we chose this town to raise our sons 20 years ago- Medina Schools are amazing! Great College Credit Plus program & constantly evolving to make opportunities for the students - Medina has beautiful parks, amazing schools - trails - sense of community- the square - great restaurants & close to Cleveland, Akron & Columbus! Just Love it here - so much so when we have thought about relocating we will always have a place here in Medina! Medina offers a wide range of opportunities. With only being about a 30 minute drive from both Downtown Cleveland and Akron, there is always something to do. Great town and there are lots of events held in Medina Square. This is the perfect town to raise a family.
