ROULA SHAREEF

This gold grill is the front part of the RoulaShareef Mubarak, the Sacred Chamber in which the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) passed away and where he is buried. It also houses the graves of the first two Caliphs of Islam, Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) and Umar (may Allah be pleased with him).

With regards visiting Madinah and performing the Ziyarah (visiting the grave of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him)), the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said: “Whoever visits me after my death is like he who had visited me during my life.” and “When a person stands at my grave reciting blessings (salam) on me, I hear it; and whoever calls for blessings on me in any other place, on the day of Qiyamah I shall be his witness and intercessor.”

The viewing holes above are aligned to the faces of the inhabitants of the graves. The largest hole on the left directly faces the Noble face of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be on him). The one in the middle is aligned to the face of Abu Bakr (May Allah be pleased with him) and likewise the one on the right is aligned to the face of Umar (may Allah be pleased with him).

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) was buried in the house of Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) in whose house he was staying at the time of his death. The wives of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) lived in small, simple huts adjacent to the masjid. Each hut consisted of a room which was approximately 5m x 4m with a small backyard and were made of unbaked bricks of mud with branches of palm tree as a roof covering.
