Welcome to Madinah Sharif

Let’s not imagine that living or working in Madinah sharif is the same as anywhere else. This is the blessed home city of the Holy Prophet sallalahu alayhi wassalam, which Allah had chosen for His Messenger and to which he had to flee for safety.  This is the city where Allah revealed to him the obligatory duties of a Muslim, and wherein He set forth the Sunnah for his deen, and here is the place where his deen became victorious and here he strove until death overtook him.  Here at every step one finds the spots where his blessed feet once trod.

Al Abbasi Holdings Ltd hence made a decision to be located and manage its initiatives within the best of neighbourhoods and cities.  Our Holy Prophet sallalahu alayhi wassalam stated within a Hadeeth:

اَللّٰھُمَّ اجْعَلْ بِلْمَدِیْنَۃَ ضِعْفَیْ مَا بِمَکَّۃَ مِنَالْبَرَکَۃ
 ‘Oh Allah, put in Madinah double of what you have put in Makkah, in terms of blessings (and increase)’ – Saheeh Bukhari/Muslim.

The holy city of Madinah al Munawwarah is internationally renowned for its stillness and peaceful environment, a place where tranquillity prevails at all times!

Madinah Today: the city has a population of 1.6 million (and counting), and in addition to being the second most important Islamic pilgrimage destination after Makkah al Mukarramah, Madinah sharif is a diverse, multi ethnic city inhabited by Saudi nationals and an increasing number of expatriate workers from many nationalities.  The demand for new homes and increased services is thus a continuing one.

Education: Madinah sharif is home to two of the world’s famous universities; the Islamic University of Madinah which provides the full spectrum of Islamic and Arabic language courses, and Taiba University which provides standard education for the needs of undergraduates and post-graduates.  Both have students enrolled from all over the world.

Heritage Sites: Madinah al Munawwarah, the city wherein the Holy Prophet sallalahu-alayhi-wassalam resided, and from where Islam rapidly spread, naturally contains many sites of Islamic history and heritage e.g. Quba and Qiblatain Mosques, Mount Uhud, Baqi sharif cemetery wherein 10,000 companions are buried; the list is endless.
