Prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and family yesterday visited the Raudhah and Prophet Muhammad’s resting place after performing Isyak prayers at the Nabawi Mosque in Madinah, on the sidelines of his five-day working visit to Saudi Arabia.

“Alhamdulillah (Thank God), last night my family and I visited the Raudhah and Prophet Muhammad’s resting place after Isya’ at the Nabawi Mosque,” Najib posted on his Twitter account today.

Najib stated that the visit was after Saudi Arabia’s King Salman Abdulaziz Al Saud had granted special permission to the family to enter the sacred sites.

“King Salman had given permission to me and family, including mother, to enter the Prophet’s resting place,” Najib tweeted.

The prime minister, his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, their children, in-laws, grandchildren, his mother Tun Rahah Mohammed Noah, brothers Datuk Nisam Razak and Datuk Nazim Razak visited the sacred sites.

“We are grateful to have entered Prophet Muhammad’s resting place as it is an honour given only to special guests of the Saudi Arabian government, which not many receive,” said Najib.
