Makkah ziyarah guide
In the name of Allah, the most Compassionate, the most Merciful
This ziyarah guide has been produced to provide facts and details on major landmarks in the city of Makkah and the
surrounding area. It is intended to help Muslims gain more awareness on the history and significance behind these
places, particularly for those embarking for Hajj or Umrah.
The content has been sourced from www.islamiclandmarks.com; a website that brings together information on
places of historical Islamic importance from around the world. The aims of the site are to revive interest in the
Ummah about our history and the relevance of past personalities and places.
Although many places have been shown in this guide, it is by no means a complete list of important landmarks in
Makkah. Insha’Allah, we hope to update the guide in the future with additional content and resources. All the
information in this guide has been checked and verified by several scholars in the UK, including graduates from
Darul Uloom Bury. References have been provided towards the end of this guide.
