Saudi Arabia


Makkah - Medina - Jeddah


Saudi Riyal

Islam, emerged in Makkah during the early 7th century, by the beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who united the population and created a single monotheistic religion. Ever since Saudi Arabia as its known in modern day, has two of the three most important sites for Muslims including Makkah and Medina, the third being Jerusalem in Palestine. 



Makkah, in a desert valley in western Saudi Arabia, is Islam’s holiest city, as it’s the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the religion of Islam. Makkah is a sacred city where only Muslims are allowed to enter, with millions arriving for the annual Hajj (pilgrimage). Dating from the 7th century, the central Masjid al-Haram (Sacred Mosque) surrounds the Kabah.


Medina is a city in western Saudi Arabia. In the heart of the city is the vast Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (Prophet’s Mosque) a major Islamic pilgrimage site. Its striking Green Dome rises above the tombs of the Prophet Muhammad (PBU) and early Islamic leaders Abu Bakr and Umar (RA). Medina hosts a range of historical sites including Masjid al-Qiblatain, Masjid Al Quba and much more. 


Jeddah, a Saudi Arabian port city on the Red Sea, is a modern commercial hub and gateway for pilgrimages to the Islamic holy cities Makkah and Medina. Resort hotels, beaches and outdoor sculptures line the Corniche, a seafront promenade anchored by the iconic King Fahd’s Fountain. The city’s Al-Balad historic district dates to the 7th century and retains traditional homes built from coral.


The Battle of Badr, fought in 624 CE in the Hejaz region, 70 miles outside Medina took place on the 17th of Ramadan. It was a key battle in the early days of Islam and a turning point in the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) struggle with his opponents among the Quraysh in Mecca. The Muslim army numbered 313 against 1,000 well equipped soldiers but had 5,000 angels assist in the battle to attain victory.
