Medina Flights Guide
Non-Muslims cannot visit Medina. It is the second holiest city in the Islamic religion, having been where the Prophet Muhammad taught for a time before he went back to Mecca in force, which is located to the south. Once held by the Ottoman Empire, it is today governed as part of the Saudi Kingdom.
Millions of pilgrims visit Medina on the Hajj Pilgrimage, which is required of all Muslims. Medina, and to a perhaps greater extent Mecca, have seen the destruction of many historical buildings under the rule of the Saudi kings. They fear that worship of buildings not directly attributed to Muhammad can be idolatrous and can tarnish the faith. The buildings central to the Hajj in Medina include the Masjid Nabawi. Under this mosque’s great green dome is Muhammad’s tomb. Jannatul Baqi is the cemetery located beside the mosque, and it is here that those affiliated with the prophet, as well as his family members, are buried. Nearby are located a number of other sites where Muhammad is known to have prayed, and where he lead great armies.
Prince Mohammad bin Abdulaziz International Airport receives international (Muslim) travelers and pilgrims. Saudi is the main airline. Others include Sudan Airways, Turkish Airlines, EgyptAir, Malaysia Airlines, Nas Air, Pakistan International Airlines and more.
