Jannat al-Baqīʿ (Arabic: ٱلْبَقِيْع, "The Baqi'") is the oldest and the first Islamic cemetery of Medina[1] in the Hejazi[2] region of present-day Saudi Arabia. It is located to the southeast of the Prophet's Mosque, which contains the graves of some of the Islamic prophet Muhammad's family and friends. It is also known as Baqīʿ al-Gharqad (Arabic: بَقِيْع الْغَرْقَد, meaning "Baqiʿ of the Boxthorn").[1]
The grounds hold much significance for Muslims, being the resting place of many of Muhammad's relatives and companions, thus marking it as one of the two holiest cemeteries in Islamic tradition. Many narrations relate Muhammad issuing a prayer every time he passed it।

Were the words of Prophet Muhammad (pbut) when describing Jannatul Baqi. Laid there are members of the Prophet Muhammad (pbut’s) blessed family and companions. I prayed Fathiha and conveyed my families, mine and the Ummahs salaams. The demolition process gives the feel of abandonment but there is a serenity and warmth that emanates a beauty that is indescribable in words. As I looked around at the ongoing construction works for the tall buildings and hotels being built I smiled for one day they will be destroyed and Jannatul Baqi restored to it’s former glory Insha’Allah. A must visit for all Muslims visiting Medina Al Munawara. Insha’Allah I hope to return too✨

It’s good to visit the grave as a remembrance that all of us is to die.
Adjacent or near to the Masjid AlNabawi.
Just a walk distance from the said masjid.
We went there after fajr or early morning prayer.
The weather is cool.

It is a blessed grave-yard containing the saints, family members and disciples of the prophet of Islam. Many of them were the martyrs who had passed away in battlefield as far away as in Baghdad. The grave-yard is a reminder and strong evidence of the existence of early Islam in the 7th century

Surrounded by distinctive high walls on the eastern side of Prophet's Mosque.

During normal times people can be seen flocking the viewing platform just for a peep over the grill and saying some prayers but due to Covid 19 pandemic no entry to the viewing platform allowed. Or at least that's what happened to us few times we tried during the National Day long weekend.

Jannatul Baqi is opened after Fajur and Asar Prayers and the best and easiest way to access it is to use Gate No.1 of Masjid-e-Nabwi. If your hotel is near Gate 15, don't follow the arrow and directions there, just go to Bab-u-Salaam where you go for Ziarat of Roz-e-Rasool and on the right, you will see Gate. No.1
The management there might not let you sit or pray in front of graves
