Recently, I had a chat with a syaikh about “Shopping During Hajj Trip”. He said that normally, he will advice that at Makkah or Madinah, try the best to concentrate on Ibaadah. He suggested that Hujjaj or those who go for umrah should spend their time about two days in Jeddah for shopping. The goods at Jeddah is cheaper because there is a port at Jeddah.
Went I re-read this post, I understand why he advice us to concentrate on Ibaadah when we go to Makkah and Madinah.

It is reported that there are 3 special masjids that we can earn big rewards from. The Prophet told us about that in the following hadith:
- The Prophet said: ”The prayer in my masjid (Masjid An-Nabawi) is better than one thousand (1000) prayers in any other masjid with the exception of Masjid Al-Haraam, and a prayer in Masjid Al-Haraam is better than one hundred thousand (100,000) prayers.”
- Abu Ad-Dardaa’ reported on the authority of the Prophet , that the reward for praying at the Sacred Mosque (in Makkah) is equal to the reward for one hundred thousand regular prayers; the reward for praying at the Prophet’s Mosque (in Madeenah) is equal to the reward for one thousand regular prayers; and the reward for praying at the Al-’Aqsa Mosque (in Jerusalem) is equal to the reward for five hundred regular prayers. [Al-Bazzaar] This is an authentic narration.
