Hurra Martyrs

Event of Hurrah in Baqee

Ziarat Hazrat Humza -Uhud


--MOSQUES IN MEDINA---

1.Masjid Quba
First mosque of Islam. The Prophet [s] spent more than 20 nights here (after migrating) praying qasr while waiting for Imam Ali [a]. It is mentioned in the Qur'an as the mosque founded on piety and devoutness
Ayat specifically for this mosque:
بسم اللہ الرحمٰن الرحیم قَدْ اَفْلَحَ مَنْ یَعْمُرُ الْمَسَاجِدَ یَقْرَئُ الْقُرْاٰنَ قَائِمًا وَ قَاعِدًا
لَمَسْجِدٌ اُسِّسَ عَلَی التَّقْوٰی مِنْ اَوَّلِ یَوْمٍ اَحَقُّ اَنْ تَقُوْمَ فِیْہِ فِیْہِ رِجَالٌ یُحِبُّوْنَ اَنْ یَتَطَہَّرُوْا وَ اللّٰہُ یُحِبُّ الْمُطَّہِّرِیْنَ۔
The Mosque of Quba is renovated and extended many times: Muslims have a great regard for it. The Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.a.) used to visit the Mosque of Quba every Monday and pray there. A tradition from him says that "One who performs wuzu at his house and goes to the Mosque of Quba and prays two units of prayer will get the reward of an Umrah."
Also, Imam Sadiq (a.s.) said, "When you visit the mosques around Medina, go to the Mosque of Quba first and pray there as far as possible."

Aamals of Quba Masjid
Upon entering the Mosque one should perform two rakats prayer of respect. Then recite the Tasbeeh of Hazrat Fatemah Zahra (s.a.). And recite the Ziarat-e-Jaameah and supplicate after that. It is better to supplicate as follows:
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وَ قَوْلُكَ الْحَقُّ فِی كِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ عَلٰی صَدْرِ نَبِیِّكَ الْمُرْسَلِ: ’لَمَسْجِدٌ اُسِّسَ عَلَی التَّقْوٰی مِنْ اَوَّلِ یَوْمٍ اَحَقُّ اَنْ تَقُوْمَ فِیْہِ فِیْہِ رِجَالٌ یُحِبُّوْنَ اَنْ یَتَطَہَّرُوْا وَ اللّٰہُ یُحِبُّ الْمُطَّہِّرِیْنَ اَللّٰہُمَّ طَہِّرْ قُلُوْبَنَا مِنَ النِّفَاقِ وَ اَعْمَالَنَا مِنَ الرِّیَا وَ فُرُوْجَنَا مِنَ الزِّنَا وَ اَلْسِنَتَنَا مِنَ الْكِذْبِ وَ الْغِیْبَۃِ وَ اَعْیُنَنَا مِنَ الْخِیَانَۃِ فَاِنَّكَ تَعْلَمُ خَائِنَۃَ الْاَعْیُنِ وَ مَا تُخْفِی الصُّدُوْرُ رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا اَنْفُسَنَا وَ اِنْ لَمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَ تَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُوْنَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِیْنَ۔
allaahumma innaka qulta wa qawlokal haqqo fee ketaabekal munzale a'laa sadre nabiyyekal mursale: 'la-masjedun ussesa a'lat taqwaa min awwale yawmin ahaqqo an taqooma feehe, feehe rejaalun yohibboona ayn yata-tah-haroo wallaaho yohibbul muttahereen' allaahumma tahhir qoloobana minan nefaaqe wa a-a'maalanaa menar reyaa wa foroojanaa menaz zenaa wa alsenatanaa menal kizbe wal-gheebate wa a-a'yonanaa menal kheyaanate fa-innaka ta'lamo khaa-enatal a-a'yone wa maa tukhfis sodooro rabbanaa zalamnaa anfosanaa wa in lam tagh-fir lanaa wa tar-hamnaa la-nakoonannaa menal khaasereena.


Well of the Prophet [s]
Infront of Masjid Quba, is a sweet-water well that is now closed. The Prophet [s]'s ring fell into this well hence the name Bi'ru al-Khatam (khatam = ring). It is also called Bi'ru Tufla because at first its water was salty but when the Holy Prophet [s] spat into it, it changed to sweet refreshing water. There was a place of Hazrat Ali (a.s.) behind this mosque and a salty water well in the front. There is no sign of this well today. It is said that the finger-ring of the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had fallen in it. Hence it is called 'Chahe Angushtari' Bi'ru al-Khatam (khatam = ring)(well of finger-ring) while it is also called 'Chahe Abe Dahaan' (Well of saliva). It is said that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had put his saliva in this well because of which its water became sweet.,hence it was called Bi'ru Tufla also
Mashrabat Umm Ibrahim
Joined to Masjid Quba is "Mashrabat Ummu Ibrahim". This is the room of the Prophet [s]'s wife Mariah Qibtwiyya (Umm Ibrahim). The Prophet [s] used to live and pray here
A group of hyprocrites constructed a mosque in 9th Hijri so that they could oppose Islam and Muslims. The Prophet (s.a.w.a.) was asked to pray in it for its inauguration and as an offering. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said that he would do so on a suitable occasion. But the revelation of the verse... wal ladinat Takhad'u Masjidan Z'iraran wa kufran...' destroyed their plans and the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) ordered to demolish it.

3.Masjid-e-Zu-Qiblatain (Mosque of Two Qiblas).The mosque where the Holy Prophet [s] was commanded to change his qibla from Masjid al-Aqsa (Jerusalem) to the Holy Ka'aba (Makkah)
In the sixth month of 1st Hijri, the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) visited the tribe of Bani Saalim which is in the north-west of Medina on invitation by Umme Bashar. As usual, he prayed two units of Zohr prayer facing Bayt-ul-Muqaddas when Allah ordered him to face Kaba. He continued the remaining prayer facing Kaba. After that, Kaba became Qiblah of Muslims forever. Hence this mosque is called 'Masjid-e-D'uqiblatan' or 'Masjid-e-Qiblatain' (The Mosque of Two Qiblas). This mosque is a little away from Mosque of Fatah towards the west.
This is a verse among the verses revealed on this incident.
قَدْ نَرٰی تَقَلُّبَ وَجْہِكَ فِی السَّمَآئِ فَلَنُوَلِّیَنَّكَ قِبْلَۃً تَرْضٰیہَا فَوَلِّ وَجْہَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ وَ حَیْثُ مَا كُنْتُمْ فَوَلُّوْا وُجُوْہَكُمْ شَطْرَہٗ…۔
"Earlier there were two arches (Mehrab) opposite to each other - one facing Kaaba and another Bayt-ul-Muqaddas. Unfortunately, only one arch remained when the renovation of this mosque was done a few years ago. The first signs of this incident were erased."
It is mustahab (recommended) to pray 2 rakats Namaz of respect in this Mosque. It is better to recite the following Dua after the prayers:
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنَّ ہٰذَا مَسْجِدُ الْقِبْلَتَیْنِ وَ مُصَلّٰی نَبِیِّنَا وَ حَبِیْبِنَا وَ سَیِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ وَ آلِہٖ وَ سَلَّمَ اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنَّكَ قُلْتَ وَ قَوْلُكَ الْحَقُّ فِیْ كِتَابِكَ الْمُنْزَلِ عَلٰی صَدْرِ نَبِیِّكَ الْمُرْسَلِ: ’قَدْ نَرٰی تَقَلُّبَ وَجْہِكَ فِی السَّمَآئِ فَلَنُوَلِّیَنَّكَ قِبْلَۃً تَرْضٰیہَا فَوَلِّ وَجْہَكَ شَطْرَ الْمَسْجِدِ الْحَرَامِ‘ اَللّٰہُمَّ كَمَا بَلَّغْتَنَا فِی الدُّنْیَا زِیَارَتَہٗ وَ مَآثِرَہُ الشَّرِیْفَۃَ فَلاَ تُحْرِمْنَا یَا اَللّٰہُ فِی الآْخِرَۃِ مِنْ فَضْلِ شَفَاعَۃِ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ وَ آلِہٖ وَ سَلَّمَ وَ احْشُرْنَا فِی زُمْرَتِہٖ وَ تَحْتَ لِوَآئِہٖ وَ اَمِتْنَا عَلٰی مَحَبَّتِہٖ وَ سُنَّتِہٖ وَ اسْقِنَا مِنْ حَوْضِہِ الْمَوْرِدِ بِیَدِہِ الشَّرِیْفَۃِ شُرْبَۃً ہَنِیْئَۃً مَرِیْئَۃً لاَ نَظْمَأُ بَعْدَہَا اَبَدًا اِنَّكَ عَلٰی كُلِّ شَیْئٍ قَدِیْرٌ۔

3.Masjid-e-Fath (Masjid-e-Ahzaab)( "mosque of victory") is at the top of a mountain. This is named after the Muslims victory in the Battle of Khandaq
There are many small mosques on the edge of Sala'kahar which indicate the map of the Battle of Khandaq. The army of Islam had camped here. Later a mosque was built here and it became famous with the name of Masjid-e-Fath. It is said that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) prayed for the victory of Muslims here and it was here that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) got the news of victory of Muslims. Hence it is named so. The famous warrior of Arab, Amr bin Abdewad was killed by Hazrat Ali bin Abi Talib in this very battle. It is written that the Prophet (s.a.w.a.) said on this occasion:
ضَرْبَۃُ عَلِیٍّ یَوْمَ الْخَنْدَقِ خَیْرٌ مِّنْ عِبَادَۃِ الثَّقَلَیْنِ۔
"A blow of Ali on the day of khandaq is better than the worship of Jinns and men.''
It is recommended to pray 2 rakats Namaz of respect and after that recite the following Dua:
یَا صِرَیْخَ الْمَكْرُوْبِیْنَ وَ یَا مُجِیْبَ دَعْوَۃِ الْمُضْطَرِّیْنَ وَ یَا مُغِیْثَ الْمَہْمُوْمِیْنَ اِكْشِفْ عَنِّیْ ضُرِّیْ وَ ہَمِّیْ وَ كَرْبِیْ وَ غَمِّیْ كَمَا كَشَفْتَ عَنْ نَبِیِّكَ صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ وَ آلِہٖ ہَمَّہٗ وَ كَفَیْتَہٗ ہَوْلَ عَدُوِّہٖ وَ اكْفِنِیْ مَا اَہَمَّنِیْ مِنْ اَمْرِ الدُّنْیَا وَ الْآخِرَۃِ یَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِیْنَ۔

There are some small Masjids near Masjid-e-Fath: Masjid-e-Ali (a.s.), Masjid-e-Fatemah (s.a.), Masjid-e-Salmaan (r.a.), Masjid-e-Umar and Masjid-e-Abu Bakr. It is better to perform 2 rakats Namaz of respect in each mosque.

4.Masjid Mubahala - Event of Mubahila took place
Dua in Masjid-e-Ejaabah
It is the also known as Masjid-e- Mobaahelah. On 24th Zilhajj the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) had done Mobaahelah with the Christians of Najraan. After 2 rakats namaz of respect in Masjid-e-Ejaabah recite the following Dua:
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنِّیْ اَسْئَلُكَ صَبْرَ الشَّاكِرِیْنَ لَكَ وَ عَمَلَ الْخَآئِفِیْنَ مِنْكَ وَ یَقِیْنَ الْعَابِدِیْنَ لَكَ اَللّٰہُمَّ اَنْتَ الْعَلِیُّ الْعَظِیْمُ وَ اَنَا عَبْدُكَ الْبَآئِسُ الْفَقِیْرُ اَنْتَ الْغَنِیُّ الْحَمِیْدُ وَ اَنَا الْعَبْدُ الذَّلِیْلُ اَللّٰہُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ امْنُنْ بِغِنَاكَ عَلٰی فَقْرِیْ وَ بِحِلْمِكَ عَلٰی جَہْلِیْ وَ بِقُوَّتِكَ عَلٰی ضَعْفِیْ یَا قَوِیُّ یَا عَزِیْزُ اَللّٰہُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِہِ الْاَوْصِیَآئِ الْمَرْضِیِّیْنَ وَ اكْفِنِیْ مَا اَہَمَّنِیْ مِنْ اَمْرِ الدُّنْیَا وَ الآْخِرَۃِ یَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِیْنَ۔

Peace be upon our master, Ishmael, the slain for Allah, and son of Abraham, the Friend of Allah. Peace be upon you; O Allah's prophet and son of Allah's prophet. Peace be upon you; O Allah's elite and so of Allah's elite. Peace be upon you; O he for whom Allah made Zamzam Well pour out, after his father had settled him in valley unproductive of fruit, near Allah's Sacred House, and for whom Allah responded to the prayer of his father, Abraham, who said, "O our Lord! Surely, I have settled a part of my offspring in a valley unproductive of fruit near Your Sacred House, our Lord, that they may keep up prayer; therefore make the hearts of some people yearn towards them and provide themn with fruits; haply they may be grateful. Peace be upon you; O he who submitted himself for slaying, in compliance with the order of Allah, the Exalted, when his father said to him, "O myy dear son! Surely, I have seen in a dream that I should sacrifice you; consider then what you see. He said: O my father! do what you are commanded; if Allah please, you will find me of the shäa patient ones." So, Allah spared him from being slain, and ransomed him with a feat sacrifice. Peace be upon you; O he who helped his father construct the Ka bah, as Allah, the Exalted, has said: "And when Abraham and Ishmael raised the foundations of the House: ismı Our Lord! Accept from us; surely You are the Hearing, the Knowing." Peace be upon you; O he whom Allah, the Exalted, praised in His Book, saying, "And mention Ishmael in the Book; surely he was truthful in (his) promise, and he was a messenger, a prophet. And he enjoined on his family prayer and almsgiving, and was one in whom his Lord was well pleased." Peace be upon you; O he in whose offspring, Allah put Muhammad, the Master of Messengers, and the Seal of Prophets, blessings of Allah be upon him and his Household. Peace be upon you and upon your fat her, Abraham, the Friend of Allah, and upon your brother, Isaac, the prophet of Allah. Peace be upon you and upon all of Allah's prophets who were buried in this blessed and honored area. Peace be upon you and upon your mother, the pure and steadfast, namely Hagar. Allah's mercy and blessings be upon you. May Allah include us with your group under the pennon of Muhammad, Allah's peace and blessings be upon him and his Household. May Allah not decide this visit to be the last of my visit you Peace and Allah's mercy and blessings be upon you..

It is within this framework that the state of mutual exchange in this relationship becomes more distinct and stronger, and the phenomenon of give-and-take between the za’ir (visitor) and the mazur (the one visited) becomes even more active.
Among the most important features which become manifest as a result of this relation between the za’ir and the mazur are:
1. Prayer for the Holy Prophet and his Progeny, sending blessings on them, and seeking Allah’s mercy for them: “O Allah, bless Muhammad and his Household with a blessing by which You will make for them plentiful Your gifts and generosity, and perfect for them Your bestowals and awards, and fill out their share of Your kindly acts and benefits.”43
We read in the Ziyarat of the Holy Prophet (S) , “O Allah, bless Muhammad and his Progeny, and send Your benedictions on Muhammad and his Household, the best You have blessed, sent benedictions, showered mercy, showed affection and sent salutations on Ibrahim and the Progeny of Ibrahim.”
2. Praying for the Holy Prophet (S) and his Progeny that may Allah make them mediators (wasa’il) to His mercy for His servants, and intercessors (shufa’a’) with Him on their behalf.
A phrase in the Ziyarat of the Holy Prophet (S) reads, “O Allah, give Muhammad the mediation (wasilah), honour, excellence, and a noble position. O Allah, confer on Muhammad the most honourable station, the gift of peace, and intercession {for the followers of} Islam. Join us with him, such that we are not ashamed, nor among those who have broken their promise {with him}, nor regretful.”
In another Ziyarat of the Holy Prophet, we read, “O Allah, grant him a {lofty} position, mediation to the Heaven, and raise him to such a praiseworthy station that the first and the last ones would covet it.”
3. Seeking recourse (tawassul) with the Holy Prophet (S) and his Progeny (‘a), and implore for their intercession (shafa’ah) with the permission of Allah, “O Allah, make me distinguished in Your eyes in this world and the Hereafter, for the sake of Muhammad and his Household. O Prophet of Allah, I turn with your help toward Allah, your Lord and my Lord, that He may forgive me my sins, and accept from me my deeds, and fulfill for me my needs. So intercede on my behalf with your Lord and my Lord, for the best of those who have been asked and the best of the masters is my Lord, and you are the best intercessor, O Muhammad, upon you and your Progeny be peace.”
In the Ziyarat of the A’immah (‘a) buried at al-Baqi’, we say, “This is the position of one who has exceeded the limits, sinned and has been humiliated, who confesses what he has committed of the offences, and {now} anticipates salvation from the state he is in… so you be my intercessors, as I have come to you when the people of this world have turned away from you, and have taken the signs of Allah in derision, and are disdainful of them.”
In the Ziyarat of Hamzah (‘a), the uncle of the Holy Prophet (S) , “I have come to you from a distant place, asking {you} to set my soul free from the Fire, as my back has been burdened with my sins and I have committed what enrages my Lord. I find no one to flee to better for me than you, the Household of mercy; so be my intercessor.”
4. Turning to Allah and asking Him to grant us their neighbourhood and companionship in the Hereafter, and firmness of stand on their guidance and path in this world, and that we may live and die in this world the way they lived and died, and that we may be resurrected in their company in the Hereafter, in the same manner that He, the Exalted, endowed us with their guidance and love in this world.
In the Ziyarat of the Holy Prophet (S) we come across the following phrases, “O Allah, I seek refuge in the generosity of Your face from placing me in the position of humiliation and disgrace, on the day the veils shall rip apart and the secrets shall be disclosed and violent fear shall seize {the people};
and the Day of Sorrow and Penitence; the Day of Drought, the Approaching Hour, the Day of Dispossession, the Day of Judgement, the Day of Requital, a day whose span is fifty thousand years, the Day of {the blow of} the Trumpet, the day when the Quaker quakes and is followed by the Successor, the Day of Resurrection, the Day of Exposition, a day when mankind will stand before the Lord of all the worlds, the day when a man will evade his brother, his mother and his father, his spouse and his sons, the day the earth is split open and the flanks of the skies, the day when every soul will come pleading for itself, the day they will be returned to Allah and He will inform them about what they have done, the day when a friend will not avail a friend in any way.”
After this round of asking the companionship of the Holy Prophet (S) and the friends of Allah on that dreadful day, the visitor (za’ir) says: “O Allah, have mercy on my stand on that day, and do not disgrace me in that site because of what I have committed against my self. O my Lord, make my coming out on that day with them, and my resurrection in the company of Muhammad and his Progeny (‘a). Make his spring {of kawthar} to be the place of my arrival, and give me my book in my right hand.”
We read in the Ziyarat of Abu al-Fadl al-’Abbas (‘a), “May Allah gather us with you, and with His Prophet and friends.”
The following has also appeared in some texts of the Ziyarat, “Strengthen for me a truthful stand (qadama sidqin) with al-Husayn and the companions of al-Husayn, who sacrificed their souls for al-Husayn (‘a).”
In the supplication of ‘Alqamah recited after the Ziyarat of ‘Ashura’, we read, “O Allah, make me live the life of Muhammad and his Progeny, and make me die the like of their death. Take my soul while I am on their religion, and resurrect me in their company. Do not separate me from them even for a blink of an eye, forever, in this world and the Hereafter.”
A phrase in the lesser known Ziyarat of ‘Ashura’ reads, “O Allah, bless Muhammad and his Household, and make me live their life and make me die their death, and do not separate me from them in this world nor in the Hereafter, indeed You hear all supplications.”
Part of the Ziyarat of al-Jami’at al-Kabirah reads, “May Allah make me steady, throughout my life, on Your friendship and love, and facilitate for me to obey you, and grant me your intercession, and make me among the best of your adherents, who follows that toward which you had called, and make me among those who follow in your footsteps, move on your road, who are guided through your guidance, resurrected in your company, brought back to life at your return (raj’ah), given an office during your rule, honoured under your protection, granted power in your days, and who will be delighted to see you tomorrow {in the Hereafter}.”
A phrase in the Ziyarat of Abu al-Fadl al-’Abbas (‘a) says: “May Allah gather us with you, and with His Prophet and friends, in the stations of the humble ones.”
In this way the bond between the visitor (za’ir) and the one visited (mazur) is accomplished. It is a mutual relationship which involves, on the one hand, prayers, greetings and salutations on the ‘one visited’ from the visitor, while on the other, it entails prayer to Allah by the visitor, asking from Him the intercession of the ‘one visited’ and his companionship in the Hereafter. This is taking into consideration that the mediator in this relationship, from both sides, is Allah; as He, the Glorious, the Exalted, is the one asked from (al-mas’ul), first and last.
