Hadith on Medina: Virtue of the Prophet’s City, al-Madinah

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Medina is a sanctuary from this place to its borders. Its trees should not be cut. No heresy should be innovated or any sin should be committed in it. Whoever innovates a heresy within it or commits sins, he will invoke the curse of Allah, the angels, and the people altogether.”

عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ عَنْ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ الْمَدِينَةُ حَرَمٌ مِنْ كَذَا إِلَى كَذَا لَا يُقْطَعُ شَجَرُهَا وَلَا يُحْدَثُ فِيهَا حَدَثٌ مَنْ أَحْدَثَ حَدَثًا فَعَلَيْهِ لَعْنَةُ اللَّهِ وَالْمَلَائِكَةِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ
