Q. Is old city of Madina covered in current Masjid Al Nabawi?

The current mosque is more than 100 times the size of the original building. This means that the current mosque covers almost the entire area of the old city itself.  This is evident from the fact that whereas Jannat Al-Baqi cemetery was on the outskirts of the city during the time of the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him), it now borders the precincts of the current mosque grounds.

Q. Is there heaven on earth?

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said: “Between my house and my pulpit lays a garden from the gardens of Paradise, and my pulpit is upon my fountain (Al-Kauthar) "narrated by Abu Hurayrah from al-Bukhaari, 1196; Muslim, 1391.

Q. What is the reward fo prayers in the Prophet's Mosque?

"Whoever performs forty times of prayer in my mosque (the Prophet's (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) mosque) with the congregation of the mosque, a statement of being exempt of the Hell-fire and a salvation from its torture will be written to him/her, and he/she is considered free from hypocrisy" [al-Musnad & al-Mu'jam]
