Especially the area where the Prophet(PBUH) of Rahmah, the Intercessor of Ummah stayed.
About 11 kilometres from Mina lies the plain of ‘Arafat where all Hujjaj gather on the 9th of Zul-Hijjah. Arafat is situated outside Haram.

18- Whenever one glances at the Holy Kaabah
The places in Madina tul Munawwarah where Dua is Accepted Include:
20- The Sacred Muwajahah (near the Golden Grille)
Imam Ibn-ul Jazari has stated that if one’s Dua is not accepted at this place, where else will it be accepted!
Now, with immense reverence and devotion, come at the sacred Muwajahah from the direction of the blessed feet, facing the Golden Grille, lowering head and eyes, perspiring, weeping and trembling with shame of sins but having hope of mercy and blessings from the Prophet (PBUH) of Rahmah, the Intercessor of Ummah . The Holy Prophet (PBUH) is facing the Qiblah inside his sacred tomb. If you come at the sacred Muwajahah from the direction of the blessed feet, the sight of the Noble Prophet (PBUH) will directly be towards you, which is a means of acquiring success in the world as well as in the Hereafter,
21- Near the blessed Mimbar (pulpit)
Make Dua near the blessed Mimbar (i.e. a pulpit-like raised structure).
22- Near the sacred pillars of Masjid-un-Nabawi
23- Masjid e Quba
About 3 kilometers from Madinah lies an ancient village called ‘Quba’ where this Masjid is situated in south-western direction. The excellence of this Masjid has been described even in the Quran and authentic Ahadis. Devotees of Prophet (P.B.U.H) can reach from Masjid-un Nabawi to Masjid e Quba by walking with a medium pace within almost 40 minutes. It is stated in Sahih Bukhari that the Beloved Prophet (PBUH) used to travel to this Masjid every Saturday either by walking or by riding.
Especially on Wednesday between the Prayer of Zuhr and ‘Asr.
25- All those Masajid which have Affiliation with the Blessed Prophet(PBUH)
(Like Masjid Ghamamah, Masjid Qiblatayn etc.).
26- All those wells which have affiliation with the Beloved and Blessed Prophet (PBUH)
27- The mount Uhud
The Holy Places where the Mujahideen of Islam were Martyred.
29- Shrines of Baqi’ graveyard
The sacred tombs and graves in Jannat-ul-Baqi’ and Jannat-ul-Mua’la have been destroyed. The graves of thousands of eminent companions, great Awliya, and devotees and those of even countless family members of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) have been obliterated. Therefore, if you enter the graveyard, there is a possibility that you might actually be walking on the grave of any companion or devotee of Prophet (P.B.U.H) whereas walking on the grave of even an ordinary Muslim is Haram in Shari’ah. It is stated in Rad-dul-Muhtar that if a certain path was built after demolishing the graves underneath it, it is Haram to walk on that path. (Rad-dul-Muhtar, vol. 1, pp. 612) In fact, if there is even a doubt about a path being new, then it is impermissible and sin to walk on it. (Durr-e-Mukhtar, vol. 3, pp. 183) Therefore, it is a request that you make Salam standing outside the boundary of Jannat-ul-Baqi’, not its main entrance. The proper method is to make Salam with your back towards the Qiblah and your face towards the faces of the buried ones.
