Additional Landmarks

Tomb of Hawa

This cemetery in Jeddah is believed to house the grave of Hawa (Eve), the first woman created and the wife of Adam (A.S.). Hawa thus considered by many to be the grandmother of humanity, which may have influenced the name Jeddah, which means grandmother in Arabic.

Mada’in Saleh

An archaeological site located in Al-‘Ula and once home to the ancient civilization of Thamud, who lived in Hegra and who carved houses within the mountains. Mada’in Saleh is famous for the story mentioned several times in the Quran of the Prophet Saleh (A.S.) and his miracle camel, which was killed by the very people who demanded a miracle as a condition for their belief and despite being forbidden to bring any harm to it. As a result, severe earthquakes destroyed the entire tribe. This site, is definitely a place for solemn reflection and contemplation of the consequences of the insistence of disbelief.

Allah (ﷻ) mentions in the Quran ((And to the Thamūd [We sent] their brother Salih. He said, “O my people, worship Allah; you have no deity other than Him. There has come to you clear evidence from your Lord. This is the she-camel of Allah [sent] to you as a sign. So leave her to eat within Allah’s land and do not touch her with harm, lest there seize you a painful punishment. And remember when He made you successors after the ‘Aad and settled you in the land, [and] you take for yourselves palaces from its plains and carve from the mountains, homes. Then remember the favors of Allah and do not commit abuse on the earth, spreading corruption.)) [7:73-74]

12 Springs of Prophet Moses (A.S.)

A historical landmark Located in the valley of Maqna in the Tabuk Province of Saudi Arabia, where the Prophet Moses (A.S.) came to drink water from one of these wells after he crossed the Red Sea and arrived in Maqna. The sprouting of crystal clear fresh water from several places and its flow against gravity in the middle of the desert through date palm farms is truly amazing!
