Bab Al-Salam the Gate of Peace of Masjid e Nabvi

by Ady Grewal Content writer
Bab Al-Salam is one of the major gates of Masjid e Nabvi. It is situated on the western side of the Roza e Rasool and is originally built by Caliph Umar (RA) in 640 CE (18AH). With the passage of an extension of the mosque, the door has been moved westward in the same line.

Today Bab Al-Salam is not its original location but has been changed. The visitors just can visit by the agents of last minute umrah deals who have well-knowledge about each corner of all Islamic places. The new construction of Bab Al-Salam has been taken place during the first Saudi expansion that was really conceived by Shah Abdul Aziz Al-Saud as well as commissioned by his son Saud Bin Abdul Aziz. 

The small three doorways to the left belong to the Babe Abi Bakar Al-Siddique. The Gates were modified in the 1920s from the left side, 1950s from center and 1980s from the right side. However, recent Gate reflects a few of the features of its antecedent. In fact, the exterior dome has lost its length and interior of the rood has also doomed. However, a chandelier hangs in the doorway. The minaret of Bab Al-Salam is the oldest and shortest of all minarets of Masjid e Nabvi. It reflects the architectural style of the Ottoman period. Bab Al-Salam can also be viewed near the base of the minaret that is a small domed structure. 

The Green doom of the Masjid Nabvi that is the largest doom is located behind Bab Al-Salam. The interior of the peace gate is directly in line with Bab Al-Baqi very near the Rawdah on the eastern end of the Mosque. The two most important gates of Bab Al-Salam and Bab e Baqi mark the two extreme ends of the first Saudi expansion of Masjid e Nabvi circa, 1950s CE. 

During the particular time of the year such as Ramadan, Hajj, etc. the area is filled with pilgrims trying to visit the Prophet’s tomb. If you want to secure from the hustle then you should concentrate umrah packages 2020 in December because in this spell there is less crowd as compared to Ramadan. 

Visiting the tomb of Prophet ﷺ is certainly getting a huge reward. Ad Messenger of Allah said:

“The person who stays at my Rawdah after my passing has similarly visited during my life in the physical world. [Tabraani]. Any person who completes major pilgrimage (Hajj) in Makkah and makes sure the ziarat of Masjid Nabvi ﷺ, so for him there is a reward of two customary Hajj. [Daylami].

And when someone sends a blessing on me near my Rawdah, meanwhile I hear and whoever calls for blessings on me in any place on the earth, his/her all need will be achieved and the day of Qiyamah I shall be his/her witness as well as an arbitrator. [Bayhaqi].

Today several people visit the Prophet’s Tomb and Bab Al-Salam as well. After salutation devotees enter Bab Al-Salam to approach Jannat ul Baqi to offer Fatiha to the great influential Muslim figures particularly Prophet’s family.
