Eir Mountain

Eir Mountain is one of the biggest mountain in Madinah Al Munawarah . It is about 7 km away from the Holy Prophet's mosque. It was mentioned in the Holy Hadith as a southern border of Madinah Al Munawarah. The Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) forbade its trodding in his hadith " Almadinah is a Haram (sanctuary) between Eir and Thowr"; but he said that Eir is one of the mountains of fire and lies on a canal of fire.
