The Rebuilding of the Cemeteries of Jannatul Baqi in Medina

    1. Petition by

      Muslims for Peace

Literally ‘Al-Baqi’ in the Arabic language means a ‘tree garden’. It is commonly known as ‘Jannatul Baqi’ or the heaven due to its sanctity as in it are buried many of the last Prophet of Islam, Muhammad's relatives and companions.

As a result, Jannatul Al-Baqi has become a well-known place of great historic and religious significance to many Muslims around the world. It is a special place they hold close to their hearts, is a part of their identity and something that they cherish greatly. It is reported that nearly seven thousand companions of Prophet Muhammad were buried there.
