Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuhu

Allahumma Salli alaa Sayyidina muhammadin wa a'laa aalihi wa sahbihi, afd'hala salawaatika wa adada ma'alumatika wa baarik wa sallim.

May Allah continuously whelm the Messenger and his family with Salawaats, Peace, Blessings, and Light, until the day in which his brother Messenger, Isa ( Alaihis Salaam ) son of Bibi Maryam ( Alaihis Salaam ), is buried in that fourth empty grave of the Prophetic Chamber, and yet even after that, and forever.

Description of Beloved  (sal-lal-lahu alai hi wa sallam)'s Prophetic Chamber:






And Today:









Hujuratu Ummahatil Mu’mineen and other adjacent features.


The heart swims in an elixir of sweetness as it is carried back to when these rooms were of clay bricks, ceilings of dried date palm leaves, doorways covered with the hides of animals or thick sack cloth. Compacted earthen floors blessed by the noble feet of all the beloved wives RadhiAllahu anhunna of our Blessed Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam as they tended to their daily chores and welcomed others into their modest and humble rooms. Spaces that witnessed our Beloved Nabi SallAllahu alaihi wasallam performing domestic tasks, receiving revelations, entertaining his guests, playing with his grandsons, fare welling loved ones. Walls that he SallAllahu alaihi wasallam passed in and out of and that protected him from the elements for ten years. SubhanAllah. By familiarizing ourselves with the details of how these most blessed rooms on the face of the earth were kindles a love that flames the desire to be closer and to help quell the longing for ostentation.

Our Beloved Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam had he wished, could have built lofty mansions and palaces, but he chose the bliss of the Hereafter as his focus, teaching that pomp and show in this life does not equate with success, that all is temporal. 

Say: The provision of this world is but small, while the next is better for whoever is God-wary. (4:77)

Reflecting on how these Hujurat were brings stillness and deepens the understanding of the importance of zuhud, renunciation of that which steals our contemplation from our true purpose here.

Junayd Rahmatullah alaih eloquently said about Zuhud:
It is seeing the world as insignificant and erasing its vestiges from the heart, and it is that the hand be free of property and the heart of pursuing it. While Shibli Rahmatullah alaih said: It is to abstain from what is other than God Most High.

Allow yourself to be transported back…and then assess your own Hujurat.

Allahumma salli ala Muhammadin Nabi yil Ummi yi wa Aalihi wa baarik wa sallim



Details of various curtains that once graced the Hujrah, the Honoured Room of the most honoured of creation, Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. 



Almutawaj belkarama
The one crowned with miracles

Almuzallal belghamama

The one shaded by clouds 

Allah’s peace and blessings be upon the Prophet and his family.

This was the gold medallion shaped embroidered motif that used to cover the Muwajaha, exquisite!




Qur’anic verses and Salawaat adorn one of the curtains that used to surround the Abode of our Blessed Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.





The first cover sent from Istanbul to Madinah, woven during the reign of Sultan Ahmad 1. Old covers would be sent back to Istanbul by the current Amir at the time and taken to the tomb of Abu Ayyub al-Ansari RadhiAllahu anhu where they would be displayed for some time before being sent to the Apartments of the Holy Mantle in the Topkapi Palace Museum.

Some narrations say it was the mother of Haroon Rashid, the Abbasid Caliph (786-809 CE)  who donated the first curtain for the Hujrah, others say it was the wife. And Allah the Almighty knows best.

After that it was the Prime Minister of Egypt who ordered a white curtain decorated and embellished with Surah Yasin. Two years later the Caliph sent violet curtains with his name being the main motif! The next one recorded was black, which accompanied his mother when she came for Hajj, and then another sent to be placed over these two, forming three layers.






Thereafter, every six years a Kiswa made of white silk embroidered with gold and silver from Egypt was provided.

Kiswa al-Saadat, the Curtain of Bliss



When the Ottomans were in control they established the green curtain with red and gold calligraphy features as above.


Detail of the above,bearing inscriptions and greetings of peace and praise for The Holy Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.

These designs are stunning, not only for their artisitic merit, which is superlative, but for the fact that they all once veiled our Blessed Rasulullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam! Allahu Akbar!

All of these examples are in the Topkapi Palace Museum, Istanbul, and if unable to visit Turkey then vicariously travel to see these Mubarak relics in the magnificent volume, The Sacred Trusts.


All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

When I read this post it reminded me of a hadith....

Arabic text to be added.)

(transliteration: "Laisal ganiyya an kathratil arad, wa lakinnal ghina ghinan nafsi.")


"Richness does not mean having a great amount of property, but richness is self-contentment."

Reporter: Hadhrat Abu Hurairah Radiyallaahu'anhu

Source: Sahih al-Bukhari, Vol. 8: #453

Note: What a beautiful insight and wisdom! We instinctively measure richness in terms of "possessions." We envy the rich and wealthy based on their possessions. However, richness or poverty is actually a state of mind, an attitude. A very rich person in the ordinary sense could feel himself very poor, because he does not have enough. In contrast, a "not so well-to-do" person may feel rich himself because of self-contentment. However, this narration makes neither richness nor poverty a worthy pursuit. If we live in poverty, we ought to strive toward rectifying the conditions in light of Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala's practical divine guidance. If we are wealthy, we should be careful about what we have acquired and how, and furthermore, whether those possessions are helping us to seek pleasure or displeasure of Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala. If  Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala has blessed us with resources, we do not have to be ashamed, but we should be conscious of our responsibilities and try to seek contentment. We should not also despise ourselves if we are poor. Instead, we should make honest effort in His path to improve our situation.  Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala wants us to seek bounty from Him, but in His way.
