About the Book:
Al’Madinah takes readers on a tour of the city’s greatest landmarks, both past and present, providing an understanding of the cultural identity of this holy destination. This title, with text by Dr. Tunaideb Al-Faidi and Ameen Qaisaran’s original photography, is an ode to one of Saudi Arabia’s greatest cities.The ancient city is intricately linked with the life of the Prophet and was witness to the birth of Islam. There is the Quba Mosque, its first stones positioned by Prophet Muhammad. There is Al Qiblatayn Mosque, where the Qibla (direction of prayer) was first changed from Jerusalem to Mecca. Perhaps most irresistible to visitors is the iconic Green Dome, situated atop the second mosque built by Prophet Muhammad in Al’Madinah, Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, also known as the Prophet’s Mosque.
