THE FIRST PROJECT IN MADINAH
DID YOU KNOW THERE WERE FOUR PROJECTS THAT THE PROPHET OF ALLAH (PBUH) STARTED WHEN HE ARRIVED IN MADINAH?
When the Messengar of Allah (Peace and Blessings be upon him) arrived in Madinah, there were four things that the Prophet embarked on:
- Establishment of the Masjid
- Establishing Brotherhood
- A covenant that would govern the relationships between the different people of Madinah
- Establishment of the Army
He started with the first project immediately -The Masjid. This was the first thing that the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) did when he arrived in Madinah. However, just before he arrived in Madinah he stayed in Quba for a short time (Quba was a place in the outer provinces of the city of Madinah, but became part of Madinah in later times). The first thing he did when he arrived in Quba was to establish a Masjid and then the first thing he did when he arrived in Madinah was to establish a Masjid. Why did our beloved leader chose the Masjid as the starting point, as the first project for these places? Because the Masjid is the centre of learning for the muslims. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) had Dar-Al-Arqam in Makkah, and he built Masjid Al Nabawi in Madinah which expands the role of Dar-Al-Arqam. Dar Al Arqam was a secret location in Makkah where the muslims would meet, pray, and teach but now since the Messenger of Allah PBUH had established an Islamic State in Madinah it was no longer a secret location and was instead public, it was Masjid Al Nabawi.
When Masjid Al Nabawi was built it was a very simple building made from mud bricks and the roof was made of palm leaves which would leak when it rained. The floor was bare sand. Even though it was very simple, it was the most blessed Masjid where the first generation graduated from. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) joined his companions in the building of the Masjid, he was building and carrying the bricks alongside his companions (may Allah be pleased with them).
