Going to Masjid an-Nabawi

Step into Masjid an-Nabawi with your right foot and recite the du'a for entering a Masjid:

أَعوذُ باللهِ العَظيـم وَبِوَجْهِـهِ الكَرِيـم وَسُلْطـانِه القَديـم مِنَ الشّيْـطانِ الرَّجـيم،[ بِسْـمِ الله، وَالصَّلاةُ وَالسَّلامُ عَلى رَسولِ الله]، اللّهُـمَّ افْتَـحْ لي أَبْوابَ رَحْمَتـِك

I take refuge with Allah, The Supreme and with His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed devil. In the name of Allah, and prayers and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah. O Allah, open the gates of Your mercy for me.

Then pray two rakahs of entering a masjid.

There is an area in Masjid an-Nabawi known as Riyadh ul-Jannah, about which the Prophet ﷺ said:

“One of the gardens of Jannah lies between my house and the pulpit”
