MADINAH: There have been several new sections added to the Prophet’s museum here, including publications, films and interactive displays, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Wednesday.

Madinah Gov. Prince Faisal bin Salman bin Abdulaziz launched the new additions to the International Fair and Museum of the Prophet’s Biography and Islamic Civilization.

Among those in attendance was Secretary-General of the Muslim World League and Chairman of the Muslim Scholars Association Dr. Mohammad Alissa.

The museum is opposite the Prophet’s mosque in Madinah.

Prince Faisal was briefed on the new sections which include publications and displays that cite over 25,000 instances of the Prophet’s miraculous work.

The souvenir shop has over 200 publications that provide insight into the Prophet’s life and various aspects of Islam.

Prince Faisal also inaugurated a special section showcasing details of the Prophet’s private chambers and the homes of his companions, as well as a new part of his mosque and minbar. This includes a seven-volume encyclopedia outlining the Prophet’s biography.

During the governor’s tour of the museum, a pavilion was inaugurated showcasing the efforts of Saudi Arabia in serving the Qur’an, the sunnah, the two holy mosques and pilgrims.

Alissa thanked Prince Faisal for supporting the museum, which he said provided details of the manner in which Islam continues to be relevant to this day.

Alissa said the MWL was particularly grateful to King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for serving Islam through the documentation of its history.

The museum is managed by the MWL with the support of the region’s development authority.
