JANNAT -UL- BAQQI


1. The most pious and spiritual grave yard of the world is called, "Jannat-ul-Baqqi" where a
number of companions (RA), wives daughters and other family members of Prophet
Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam are lying to rest. In the time of Prophet sallalla ho
allihi wasalam live hood, this grave yard was thought to be out side the Madina city but
after the vast extension,now it has now come just adjacent to Masjid-e-Nabvi. If you
come out from Masjid-e-Nabvi, through Baqqi Gate, or Jibrael (AH) Gate you will see
few yards ahead a boundary wall at a little height. This is JANNAT -UL -BAQQI'S wall.
Stairs are made to reach at the height.

2. Men can visit this grave yard going inside but ladies are not allowed even to go up near
the wall of the graveyard. Ladies must present their Salaam outside Baqqi. Baqqi is very
clean and tidy grave yard. No bush and tree is there. All the graves are made of mud. No
concrete constructions over the graves are made. Pavement and passages are made for
easy walking but there is no sign over the graves have been given to know the name of
the buried personality. Some guides (Moaleems) tell about graves. Squared boundary of
half feet high has been built around all prominent graves.
