Visiting the Historic Mount Uhud in Medina
In March 625AD, in the valley of Mount Uhud, Muhammad led the Muslim residents of Medina into battle against rival forces from Mecca. The outnumbered Muslim forces nearly achieved victory at the Battle of Uhud, but the decision to breach Muhammad's orders eventually forced them to withdraw. In the Qur'an, the defeat at Uhud Mountain is used to teach Muslims the importance of obeying Allah.
Visitors to Medina can visit Uhud Mountain and see the graveyard of the early Muslim followers who died in the famous battle, including the Prophet's uncle, Hamza. While taking in panoramic views of the mountain's rugged terrain, visitors can also enjoy the offerings of street vendors, who sell everything from fresh dates to hand-woven scarves.
