In Islam, belief in both the seen and the unseen, and in the wisdom and power of the Lord Creator occurs without seeing Him, and instead, relies on visualizing His creative forces in this physical world and the wonderful creations within it. This sparks the realization that we must obey and execute His orders in every circumstance, including the obligation to visit the places that became sacred because God assigned them to play a role in His servants’ worship. The tangible existential connection with all these sacred places, monuments, and heritage sites instills in the believer a connection to the way of servitude that the Prophet (pbuh&hp) and his successors initiated. As such, they become an ever-present reminder to Muslims of our relationship with God and represent devotion and worship to Him exclusively.
The presence of these holy sites, shrines, and historical structures that are associated with events, people, and sacred symbols increases the believers’ certainty of the divine mission and truth of those whom God sent with this religion (i.e., the Prophet [pbuh&hp]). Furthermore, it reminds us of the supporters who expended every effort to support his mission, and of the grueling eras that witnessed the establishment of Islam’s pillars and the various social and political phases that Islam went through.
