1 .  Very few know that in the shrine of Syedna Muhammad (S. A. W.) there is a place where Syedna Essa (AH) will be buried.

 2 .  According Islamic facts, Syedna Essa (AH) was lifted alive by Almighty from the earth. He (AH) is still alive in the skies and the time will come when he (AH) appear over a minaret of a mosque in Seria. He will be the follower of last Prophet (S. A. W.) and will fight against enemies of Islam. He (AH) will kill "DAJAL" (one eyed liar who will come in this world to deceive people before Day of Judgment) and Islam will rule all over the world. He (AH) will live forty years and like other human beings he (AH) will eventually die. After his (AH) death he (AH) will be laid to rest in the shrine of Prophet (S. A. W.). Pilgrims can not find any sign of it at present here.

MUSALA -E- PROPHET (S. A. W.) - Place where Prophet Stood for Prayer.

Musala-e-Rasool    Riaz-ul-Janna floor

1 .  Today where Emam leads the five time prayers is the place, which was built in the era of Syedna Usman (RA). In the time of Prophet (S. A. W.) this place was out of Masjid. The exact position of Prophet's (S. A. W.) is few rows behind the present Musala-e-Emam. It is in Riaz-ul-Janna and remained crowded with lovers of Prophet (S. A. W.). Now, a small wall is built where the Prophet forehead used to touch the floor. Now when a worshiper touches his forehead to the floor it is the exact place where the  of Prophet (S. A. W.) used to stand for pray.

RIAZ -UL- JANNA (Garden of Heaven)

1 .  The area from the house of Syeda Aisha (now shrine of Prophet S. A. W.) to Musala-e-Prophet
(S. A. W.) is called "RIAZ-UL-JANNA". In arabic, Riaz means Garden and Janna means Heaven. Therefore, this part of "Masjid-e-Nabvi" is called the garden of Heaven.

2 .  Riaz-ul-Janna is actually a part of land which kissed the feet of Prophet (S. A. W.) thousands of time. Prophet (S. A. W.) use to walk bare footed at least, five times in this area in a day. Really, we may feel grood over this piece of land. Almighty Allah, also love this small area of land and because of this fact, He (Almighty Allah) has decided to lift it up at the Day of Judgment as a Garden of Paradise.

of Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi

of this written Hadess is "Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho alli hi wasalam said :
The passage in between my house (now ROZA) and my Mimber (Place delivering
 khutba) is the garden of Jannah ")

sallallaho allihi wasalam showing with green arrow.The
Red arrow showing the place where prophet sallaho
allihiwasalam led the prayer few days after commandments
of changing of qibla

3 .  Because of such importance the area of Riaz-ul-Janna has great spiritual attraction for pilgrims. For the convenience of the pilgrims this part of mosque is carpeted entirely in different colour. Whole the mosque has red carpets but here its colours are green. The pillars of this area is also different to other parts of the mosque. The strips and designs of pillars are white and and golden.

today the Mozzin of Masjid nabvi calls Azan at this spot. He also
calls Aqamat and takbeerats from this roof. After new big high roofs
of masjid-e-Nabvi , this old roof looks like a stage.
