The holy shrine of the Holy Prophet and every nook and cranny of Masjidun Nabee particularly the old portion of the mosque are visitable. Pulpit of the Holy Prophet, "Riyaad (Riyaaz)ul Jannah" (the heaven garden) situated between the pulpit and "Hujrah" (chamber,room) of the Holy Prophet and pillars of the mosque are the sacred places to have oneself blessed with. Jannatul Baqee': It is the famous and big graveyard of holy Madinah where some 10,000 companions of the Holy Prophet and innumerable successors to the Prophet's companions, successors to the companions' successors, saints, savants, posterity of the Holy Prophet which include Hadrat Saiey-yidinaa Imaam Hasan Mujtabaa, Imaam Zainul Aabideen, Imaam Muhammad Baqar and Imaam Ja'far Saadique (may Allah be pleased with them all) are taking rest (buried) here. But alas! The shrines of all these venerable personages have been demolished leaving no traces of them. Masjid-e-Qubaa: Offering two Rak'at prayer in this mosque earns a believer the reward equal to that of an 'Umrah's. It is proved by authentic traditions that the Holy Prophet used to visit this mosque every week. Sometimes he walked it on foot and sometimes rode a riding-beast. Masjidul Qibla-taien: The change of Qiblah (the direction in which prayer is offered) towards the holy Ka'bah was commanded in this mosque during prayer. The Holy Prophet was leading prayer and had completed two Rak'ats in the direction of Baitul Muqaddas (Jerusalem) when the command of Allah for the change of Qiblah descended. The Holy Prophet immediately changed his direction towards the holy Ka'bah (from Baitul Muqaddas) and completed the prayer offering the remaining two Rak'ats in the direction of Ka'bah. It has two "Mehraab" (arches) one in the direction of Baitul Muqaddas and the other towards the sacred Ka'bah. Besides these mosques there are some other mosques of historical significance like Masjid-e-Kabeer, Masjid-e-Jumu'ah, Masjid-e-Shams, Masjid-e-Banee Quraizah, Masjid-e-Ibraaheem, Masjid-e-Zafar, Masjidul Ijaabat, Masjid-e-Fatah, Masjid-e-Banee Haraam, Masjid-e-Zubaab etc. Shuhudaa-e-Uhud: The Holy Prophet used to visit the graves of the martyrs of the battle of Uhud at the beginning of every year. Saiey-yidul Shuhudaa Hadrat Hamzah (may Allah be pleased with him) is taking rest (buried) here. The wells of Madinah: The Holy Prophet graced some wells by either performing ablution with its water or drinking its water or putting his blessed saliva in it. Thus these wells i.e. Beer-e-Arees, Beer-e-'Urs, Beer-e-Budaa'ah, Beer-e-Haa, Beer-e-Romah, Beer-e-Ihaab, Beer-e-Anas bin Maalik, Beer-e-Bussah, Beer-e-'Ahain etc. are attributed to the Holy Prophet. Some of them are extant and some extinct.
