This brief but comprehensive book is presented to outline the rituals of Ziyaarah (visiting the Noble Prophet's Masjid and his grave in Madeenah Munawwarah).
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam said: "Verily, he who performed Hajj and refrained from visiting me, has rendered me an injustice."
The opportunity to visit the Noble Prophet's Masjid and his grave is indeed among the greatest blessings and fortunes a Muslim can receive. It is also a very desirable form of Ibaadah (Worship), a very successful way of attaining spiritual elevation and an encouraging reason for an acceptable intercession. In view of Rasoolullah's (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) countless favours on the Ummah and the hopes that are expected from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam after death, it is indeed unfortunate if Ziyaarah is not made, in spite of having the means. To miss the great honour of Ziyaarah and to offer excuses is being neglectful and careless.  The author has included all the information necessary for Ziyaarah, explaining its method and its proper sequence, in plain simple English with diagrams and sketches where appropriate.
