The excellence of the Rowdhah

Reference: al-A’maal – Page 23

Question: What is the excellence of the Rowdhah [inside al-Masjid an-Nabawee] – has anything [authentically] been reported about it?

Response: No doubt there is great excellence attached to the Rowdhah, as it has been [authentically] reported from the Prophet ﷺ in the hadeeth of ‘Abdullaah ibn Zayd al-Maazinee (radhi-yAllaahu ‘anhu) who said: The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ said:

«That which is between my house and my pulpit is a garden from the gardens of Paradise» – transmitted by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim.

And his ﷺ house is where his grave lies [today], and his pulpit is from where he used to deliver the khutbah – and [today] it lies in its [original] spot; so [based upon this], that [area] which lies between these two is a garden from the gardens of Paradise – [just] as the Prophet ﷺ has informed [us].

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
