Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was not only the greatest man in history, but also one of the greatest leader and this is the replica of his house, based on the exact description from authentic Hadeeth, on display in Jeddah. How simple!
Notice the following:
1- The entrance is not a door, it’s just a curtain (Visitors didn’t knock. They called his name. Surat Alhujurat)
2- There is a spear, bow, arrows, and a sword.
3- There is a stick that he used to lean on when giving Khutbahs and walking.
4- Other items includes water-pot made from skin, plates, and a turban.
5- Roof is made of palm tree branches. If it rains, the house gets wet!
6- The pillow he used was a brick!

What marvelous beauty in simplicity. Shows the greatness of Muhammad(PBUH)in its stark grandeur linking the apparent with the hidden, this world with the next and mankind with its Creator.
