No Cinemas being built within Holy Madinah Haram Boundary

A recent outcry was observed on Social media regarding building of 10 cinemas in the holy city of Madinah . It is outside the scope of ‘Inside the Haramain’, we believed it was best to address and put the rumor to rest.

The outcry began when one of the learned scholars of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan quoted a tweet of the Madinah Al Munawwarah Municipality, which announced the establishment of a project ‘The Boulevard Walk’ on King Salman Road in the outskirts of Madinah Al Munawarrah last year.

The Scholar expressed outrage over establishment of Cinemas in the Holy City of Madinah Al Munawarrah and called on authorities to reconsider the decision.

However the scholar was mistaken as there will be no cinemas established within the ‘Holy Cities of Makkah and Madinah’, as defined the Holy Haram boundaries of the cities.

Following the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him): Allâh’s Messenger ﷺ said: “Madinah is sanctuary (Haram) from Mount Ayr to Mount Thaur. Whoever innovates in it or Commits a sin against Sharia (Islamic law) or provides shelter to an innovates, may the curse of Allah, Angels and all peoples be upon him and his worship or good deeds will not be accepted by Allah on the Day of Resurrection (Sahih Muslim H. No. 1370), The authorities are careful not to violate the rules of the Haram established over 1400 years.

The ‘Had Al Haram’ are well defined boundaries in Makkah and Madinah which define the sanctuary limit of the Holy cities. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has built and established Signs at the starting point of the Haram at each corner of the city.

So to conclude, It is false to assert that Cinemas are being established in the “Holy City of Madinah Al Munawarrah” when in fact the establishment is well outside and far from the defined Haram Boundaries.

    I think we should be careful since Allah has condemned such innovetes whether within the boundaries or outside.May Allah continue to guide and protect the leaders of Saudis amin

    As per rules of Haram established 14oo years ago, is it lawful to make provisions for the believers to commit sin beyond the boundaries of Haram???

    Whether within or Outside the Haram Areas, Sins Shouldn’t be allowed to be committed. Muhammad Bin Salam should be very careful

    Cimemas should not be allowed in Saudi Arabiu either within or outside Haram. Sins are sins wherever they are committed. King Salman should be careful.

    May Allah the Almighty guide the kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
    When I heard such things are happening this makes me think that this is the land of our beloved Prophet (PBU) and now what is going there is totally outrageous.

    Please don’t follow western culture. You see western countries they are keeping a sacred country Vatican in rome. No wine, no cinema nothing is allowee there. Like that you should not introduce any kind of cinemea thethre inside or outside Madhina. Anyway if you are building thethre in madhinah, then there will march of second wave of ababeel bird in madhina. Allah will curse those who are trying spoil the scared of holy cities.

    Then why built a cinema? Even if its outside the vicinity. Haraam is haram. Then why build it. That’s really bad. Allah is watching.


      I fully share your opinion….

    The question is that Saudi Government did allow to build a cinema within Madina but outside Haraam boundaries, does it make sense to any of you? honestly speaking Its a sign end days of Prophet Mohammad SAW.

    Please don’t think that you guys will get off on a technicality on the day of judgment. Why build the cinemas in the first place?
