      I have visited and taken a car from madina to mecca, Inshallah if allah allows me i want to travel by camelback from Madina to mecca to get true Bedouin or early muslims experience, is there a route which Prophet and his companions took. It will take a while but certainly be once in a life time experience to tred the same path which great muslims took.

    • Taxi from Madinah Airport

      by Amreeki Online Now Mar 29, 2011 at 9:18 PM

      Assalamu Alaikum,

      We (a family of four) will be traveling to Madinah from Jeddah in Mid April, inshallah. We are coming from America for Umrah and will go to Madinah first. We will be staying at Elaf Taiba. What would be the best way to go to the Hotel from the Madinha airport? I assume, Taxi. If so, how much does it cost? Can I make prior reservation? If anyone can share number of Taxi company that would be great too!

      Another question, we will be traveling from Madinah to Makkah (a family of seven). I was told Saptco would be best choice. Is it right? Or, it's better to take taxi? I checked online, it looks like Saptco costs about SR80 for their VIP service (one way). I have elderly parents with me.

      Thanks for your response.

    • Coming to Madina !!!!

      by tjanjua Online Now Aug 12, 2008 at 1:44 PM

      Asslam-o-Alikum All:
      Well, I am planning a trip with my family in September to Medina, inshallah. We will be coming to Madina after performing Umrah inshallah. Our stay will be very short,; about 48 hours and we want to maximize the benefits of our stay inshallah. I know it is going to be Ramadan and with hot weather, mobility is going to be some what limited. But if you guys can help in the following, it will be really appreciated. May Allah bless and reward you for your efforts.

      What are the good, close to Haram and reasonably priced hotels in Madina?
      What are the other sacred places we can visit close to Haram?
      Good places to eat and Shop?
      What is the best way for a family (4 people)to get around in Madina?
      We have a flight to Jeddah, right after Friday prayer and will be very tight on time. Any tips so we don't miss the prayer and still make to the airport for the flight. How far is the airport from the Masjid Nabawi?
      Anything else you like to add which is helpful in our stay?

      Thank you and Jazak Allah Khair

      Forbidden zone in Madinah for non-muslims

      by NilsTheFreelancer Online Now Jul 27, 2008 at 3:22 AM


      Does anyone know is there a Madinah map somewhere available in the web where clearly are marked borders of forbidden zone for non-muslims? As fas as I know, forbidden zone is historical center of the city (including Prophet's Mosque) but not the whole city.

      The same question about map of Makkah with clearly marked such borders. As far as I know, it's not just Makkah city limits but much more.

      Any suggestions appreciated,
