The Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah has several areas of retractable roof which, when open, create an awesome view toward the heavens. You can see the exquisite detailing involved which make this mosque an amazing jewel of the Islamic world. This is one of eight or so minarets which rise up into the sky. The Prophet’s Mosque is the site where Mohammed, the founder of Islam, is buried. Millions of visitors each year include a visit to Madinah in their itinerary when they come to Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj. The Hajj is a religious pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah and is required of every able bodied Muslim at least once in his or her lifetime.

About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
