Riyadh Al Jannah visit limited to just once per year

MAKKAH: A Muslim is allowed to visit the Riyadh Al Jannah at the Prophet’s Mosque, the second holiest site in Islam, once a year, as stated by the Ministry of Hajj and Umrah in the kingdom. The ministry clarified that a permit for visiting this revered location is issued every 365 days.

According to the ministry, individuals interested in visiting Al Rawda Al Sharifa also known as Riyadh Al Jannah can book a permit after a year has passed since their last permit. Al Rawda Al Sharifa, situated within the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina, holds the tomb of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Muslim worshippers desiring to pray and visit Al Rawda Al Sharifa must obtain an official permit prior to their arrival.

Following the completion of Umrah or the minor pilgrimage at the Grand Mosque, Islam’s holiest site in Mecca, many pilgrims traditionally visit the Prophet’s Mosque for prayers and to pay their respects at Al Rawda Al Sharifa.

Saudi Arabia anticipates approximately 10 million Muslims from abroad to perform Umrah during the current season, which began over six months ago. In April, Saudi authorities introduced a gilded brass barrier surrounding the Sacred Chamber at the Prophet’s Mosque, replacing a wooden barrier. This new barrier aims to preserve the visual identity and architectural pattern of the Mosque. Inspired by the anterior of the Prophet’s Chamber, Al Rawda Al Sharifa, and cabins holding copies of the Holy Quran at the Old Mosque, the 87-meter-long barrier is made of pure brass. It surrounds the Sacred Chamber from three directions and is designed to withstand human density pressure while ensuring easy maintenance through internal props securing its immovability.
