What is Rawdah?

Rawdah literally means a Garden. The Rawdah that you are asking about it a special place in Masjid-E-Nabawi, where the Prophet ﷺ said that the duaas of the Visitors are accepted. Pilgrims during their visit to the Prophet’s Mosque are keen to visit the Rawdah, a place located between the Prophet and Aisha’s house, peace be upon them, and between the Prophet’s Minbar (or pulpit).

Below is a Hadith from Sahih Bukhari:

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 112:

Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet ﷺ said, “There is a garden from the gardens of Paradise between my house and my pulpit, and my pulpit is on my Lake Fount (Al-Kauthar).”

The Rawdah’s Borders

The house of Aisha, the pulpit, the qibla, and a parallel line leading to the remaining portion of Aisha’s home can be seen as the Rawdah’s limits from its eastern, western, southern, and northern sides, respectively.

The original dimensions were roughly 15 meters wide by 22 meters long. Visitors are constantly eager to perform nafl prayers in Rawdah because it is thought to be the ideal location, with the exception of mandatory prayers, which are performed more effectively in the front row.

“The Rawdah is part of the Prophet’s mosque, and the prayer in it equals in reward 1,000 prayers. However, there is no doubt that the Rawdah is of more excellence because the Prophet distinguished it and did not distinguish any other parts of the mosque for being a garden from the gardens of Paradise.” (Bukhari)
