most blessed and spiritual graveyard in the world: Jannatul-Baqi,
wherein lie a great number of companions, wives, daughters and
other family members of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Messenger SallAllahu alaihi wassalam said: "Peace be upon
you, O abode of believers. What you were promised will come
to pass tomorrow at a fixed time. We shall, Allah willing, soon
join you. O Allah! Grant forgiveness to the people who are buried
in al-Baqi al-Gharqad." (Muslim)
"I am the first for whom the Earth will burst open, then
Abu Bakr and then Umar. I shall then come to those who are buried
in al-Baqi and they will be gathered along with me. After
that I shall wait for the people of Mecca so as to be gathered
among the inhabitants of the two sacred cities." (Tirmidhi)
the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, this grave
yard was thought to be outside of Madina but now it is adjacent
to Masjid an Nabwi. Al-Baqi is a powerful place. Other
cities consider it their pride to host a single saint; but here
there are hundreds. All around lie at rest the men and women
who heard the Prophets summons, and broke the idols of
their forefathers, and gave their lives to his cause.
Malik rahmatullah alayhi (a resident of this blessed graveyard)
puts the number of sahabah buried here as 10,000.

death of the Apostle, affected her very much and she was very
sad and grief-stricken and wept her heart out crying all the
time. The tragedy of her father's death was too much for the
good, gentle and sensitive lady and she breathed her last on
14th jumada 'l-ula 11 A.H., exactly seventy-five days after
the death of her father, the Holy Prophet of Islam. Fatimah
died in the prime of her life at the age of eighteen, and was
buried in Jannatu 'l-Baqi', Medina.
Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) reports that Rasullullah(sallallahu
alaiyhi wassallam) said: "Whoever has the means to die
in Madinah, let him die there for I shall intercede on behalf
of everyone who dies there." (Ahmad, Tirmidhi)

related to me from Alqama ibn Abi Alqama that his mother said
that she had heard A'isha, the wife of the Prophet, may Allah
bless him and grant him peace, say, "The Messenger of Allah,
may Allah bless him and grant him peace, rose one night and
put on his clothes and then went out. I ordered my slave-girl,
Barira, to follow him, and she followed him until he got to
al-baqi. He stood near it as long as Allah willed and then he
left. Barira arrived back before him and told me and I did not
say anything to him until morning, and then I mentioned it to
him and he explained, 'I was sent out to the people of al-baqi
to pray for them." (Muwatta Imam Malik)
al-Baqi (also spelt Jannat ul-Baqi) is a famous cemetery in
Madinah, Saudi Arabia, located right across from the Masjid
al-Nabawi. It is well known since many of Muhammad s.a.w.
relatives and companions are buried here, and due to its sanctity.
Its name means "Tree Garden of Heaven". Many traditions
relate Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. issuing a prayer every time
he passed the cemetery.
to the twentieth century, many of the graves were covered
with domes or other structures.
Jannatul Baqi had Dargah's and Mazaars in that place
before the saudis destroyed them.
after the city of Madinah was taken by the Wahabbi forces
of Ibn Saud, many of these buildings and tombs, originally
intended to identify famous figures and enable Muslims to
receive blessings or petition saints buried there for their
intercession, were destroyed, in order to keep with the Wahabbi
ideal of not venerating graves.
Despite this, the graves of many historic figures continue
to be visited by numerous pilgrims and burials continue at
the cemetery to this day as well.
the demolition of 1925, Saudi authorities have stepped up
restrictions with regards to visiting graves. Shias come to
Jannatul Baqi to pay respect to their leaders, and this often
involves invoking the dead and reciting salutations. However,
this goes against the principles of the Wahabbi interpretation
of Islam, state-sanctioned within Saudi Arabia, and the result
is that often books and maps of the graves are confiscated
by the authorities.
continue to mourn the day that the House of Saud demolished
graves in the Baqi cemetery, calling this day Yaum e Gham,
literally meaning Day of Sorrow. They continue to protest
the Saudi government's continuous demolition of shrines and
ancient Masjids in Saudi Arabia built over shrines.
