Madinah – A Sanctuary (Ahadith 1586 – 1589)

Bismillah.

Book of Virtues of Madinah starts today..

Yay! I’m excited. I love Madinah. :D

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 91:

Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Medina is a sanctuary from that place to that. Its trees should not be cut and no heresy should be innovated nor any sin should be committed in it, and whoever innovates in it an heresy or commits sins (bad deeds), then he will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people.”


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 92:

Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) came to Medina and ordered a mosque to be built and said, “O Bani Najjar! Suggest to me the price (of your land).” They said, “We do not want its price except from Allah” (i.e. they wished for a reward from Allah for giving up their land freely). So, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) ordered the graves of the pagans to be dug out and the land to be levelled, and the date-palm trees to be cut down. The cut date-palms were fixed in the direction of the Qibla of the mosque.


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 93:

Narrated Abu Huraira (radiallaahu `anhu):

The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “I have made Medina a sanctuary between its two (Harrat) mountains.” The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) went to the tribe of Bani Haritha and said (to them), “I see that you have gone out of the sanctuary,” but looking around, he added, “No, you are inside the sanctuary.”


Volume 3, Book 30, Number 94:

Narrated ‘Ali (radiallaahu `anhu):

We have nothing except the Book of Allah and this written paper from the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) (where-in is written:) Medina is a sanctuary from the ‘Eer Mountain to such and such a place, and whoever innovates in it an heresy or commits a sin, or gives shelter to such an innovator in it will incur the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people, none of his compulsory or optional good deeds of worship will be accepted. And the asylum (of protection) granted by any Muslim is to be secured (respected) by all the other Muslims; and whoever betrays a Muslim in this respect incurs the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people, and none of his compulsory or optional good deeds of worship will be accepted, and whoever (freed slave) befriends (take as masters) other than his manumitters without their permission incurs the curse of Allah, the angels, and all the people, and none of his compulsory or optional good deeds of worship will be accepted.

Yes, Madinah has a Haram too, between the two black stones from East and West and the two mountains known as `Eer and Thawr from North and South. This Haram is like that of Makkah in terms of ruling, for example no cutting of trees or killing of game etc.

Here comes the scary part, though: “Whoever innovates in it an heresy or commits a sin, or gives shelter to such an innovator in it will incur the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people..” O_O
Must be extra careful!

Just a side thought: everybody who’s been to Madinah knows how it’s so peaceful and has a different feel to it. Everything’s calm, even the traffic. It’s beautiful, and so are its people. There’s a reason: no sin, no innovation. The place is protected, physically and spiritually. <3

Here’s a nice article on it: http://medinanet.org/index.php/articles/ates/58-madinah-as-a-haram-sanctuary
