Pilgrims pray for Nigeria At The Prophet’s Graveside In Medinah

Date:

Thousands of Nigerian pilgrims in Madinah on Sunday trooped to the section of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, where his grave is located, to offer special prayers for Nigeria.

In Madinah, reports that the pilgrims were seen beside the grave offering two rakat prayers.

According to an Islamic scholar, Dr. Alhassan Yaaub, one prayer offered at the Prophet’s mosque in Madinah is equivalent to one thousand prayers anywhere else in the world except in Masjid Haram in Makkah.

A pilgrim, Lawal Mohammed, who said he was able to pray beside the Prophet’s grave, thanked almighty Allah to have been able to fulfill his lifelong ambition.

“It has been my heart’s desire to offer prayer at the graveside of the Prophet since I arrived Madinah on July 12, but it has not been really easy due to the large crowd.

“Offering prayer at the Prophet’s graveside is very important to the Muslims, as it quickens the response of almighty Allah to one’s request and prayer.

“Thank God I succeeded at last. I offered two rakat prayers for the peace, security and economic prosperity of Nigeria,” he said.

Another pilgrim, AbdulKadir Nuhu, described the crowd at the graveside as amazing, adding that he also prayed to almighty Allah to intervene in the affairs of Nigeria by taking control of its challenges.

Meanwhile, the number of 2019 pilgrims from Nigeria to the Holy Land rose to 24,993, with 51 flights as at Sunday, according to figures from the Command Control Centre of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria.
