Al Madina Al Monawarah*

Before islam came to Al Madina,it was called Yathreb,then it was given this name which means the city of light.
It`s true,when you arrive to Madina you will feel so relieved from all your swarrows and pains.
Amazingly spiritual experience.

Al Madina*

Al Madina Al Monawarah is the city that the prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him)chose to settle and live until the day he died.
In Madina,the first thing that will greet you are the palm trees,where you can see many dates plantation on the side of the roads.
I had a chance to visit Madina 3-4 times,all done in winter exept for my last visit in May 2005.

A very old pic

I found this picture among my mom's collection.
The pic is dated to year 1974.

    A majestic view of the Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi! The pics still gave me goosebumps of the serenity, the calmness...
