Exploring Islam's Holiest Sites

There are many places of Islamic historical and religious importance spread all over the world. But the holiest Islamic places are situated in the Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina, situated in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Masjid Al-Haram is the holiest Islamic place, which is situated in Mecca. It houses the sacred place, Baitullah (House of Allah), also known as Ka'ba. This historic religious building was first built by the Prophet Ibraheem. Millions of Muslims from all over the world frequently travel to this most sacred place for the performance of Hajj and Umrah. It also happens to be one of the largest Mosques. More than 2.5 million Muslims perform Hajj each year at this place.

The second holiest Islamic site is situated in the holy city of Medina, known as Masjid-e-Nabvi (the mosque of the Prophet). It was first built by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Over the years, it has undergone a series of renovations and expansions. The site of the original Masjid-e-Nabvi is included in the present day's Masjid. Every visiting Muslim likes to offer Nafl Prayer at the site of the original Masjid-e-Nabvi. Together with Masjid Al-Haram, both these holiest Islamic Sites are referred to as "Harmain."

The third holiest place for Muslims is situated in Palestine, known as the Dome of the Rock or Masjid Al-Aqsa. The significance of this place is that in the early days of Islam, Muslims used to offer Prayers while facing toward this site. That's why it is also known as Qibla Awwal (the first Qibla). It also happens to be the site from where the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was ascended to the heavens on the historic Islamic event of Miraj an-Nabi.

The Role of Islamic Places in Promoting Inclusivity & Cultural Heritage Preservation

Listing the Islamic Places on this application is not merely for the purpose of providing information and knowledge, though it is the basic idea behind it. Additionally, it is an effort on our part to promote the Islamic heritage and culture. The historic Islamic places such as famous mosques, all around the world, carry a rich Islamic Architectural heritage. Preserving these sites for future generations is equally important, so they must be familiar with the glorious history of Islam and Islamic sites.

Similarly, contemporary Islamic sites are also very important and need to be introduced to the world compellingly. Promoting them is equally important as they represent the gradual and consistent evolution of the Islamic Sites over the years. Together with the historical sites, these modern places depict the transition from the old cultural values to the present day's customs while preserving the basic Islamic theme.
