The holy prophet ,Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam declared,
“Ohod is a Mountain
which loves Us and which We love: it is upon
 the Gate of 
Heaven.” adding, “And Ayr is a Place which hates Us
which We hate: it is upon the Gate of Hell.”

The MOUNT OHAD sheltered
Muhammad sallalla ho
allih wasalam i
in the time of danger,therefore on Resurrection Day
it will be raised to Paradise: whereas Jabal Ayrs' neighbour
having been so ill-judged as to refuse the Prophet water on an
occasion while he thirsted, will be cast incontinently into Jahannam

pAnother pic  of JABAL-E-AYR [MOUNT OF HELL] [
Madeenah is sanctified between `Ayr and Thawr.” Ayr is a
mountain near Dhul Haleefah[masjid-e-Ali where the people
of Madina munawwaeah and the pilgrims coming to Makkah
after staying in Madina, wrap ahram and do niyeet for
umra. It is meeqat for madina people] and its rear side
resembles the back of an ayr which is a donkey. Thawr is a
small mountain near and it does not refer to Mount Thawr
that is in Mecca .

Jabl Ayr (Mount Ayr) is the second largest mountain in Madinah
after Uhud and marks the southern boundary of Madinah. The
Prophet (s.a.w.) described it as a mountain of Hell.

- The Prophet (s.a.w.) declared, “Uhud is a mountain which
loves us and which we love, it is upon the Gate of Heaven;”
adding, “And Ayr is a place which hates us and which we hate,
it is upon the Gate of Hell.”

‘Ayr’ means a ‘wild ass’, whereas Uhud is derived from Ahad,
meaning ‘one’, — so called because it is fated to be the place
of victory to those who worship one God. The very names, say
Muslim sages, make it abundantly evident that even as the men
of Al-Madinah were of two parties, friendly and hostile to
the Prophet (s.a.w.), so were these mountains.
