Question about my Madinah visit


These are NOT dreams but something I would like to ask about:
Madinah was my first stop before going to Makkah for Umrah:
1) While at Prophet Muhammed’s (SAW) mosque, my aunt told me of a green carpet that I should pray on (2 rakats nifl). She said the green carpet covers an area of the ground that came from heaven & which will be raised to heaven along with the Prophet’s (SAW) grave. What is the significance of praying on this area?
2) I got the chance to pray on it twice- alhamdulillah. During the second prayer, when I went into first sujood, I broke into tears & felt this immense love for our Prophet (SAW). I didn’t know why I was crying. I thanked Allah for sending him to us. Is this just me overwhelmed with praying on the green carpet or does this mean something else?
Thank you.


The Prophet (upon him blessings and peace) said that the area between his Pulpit and his house is a Garden of Paradise (Bukhari, Muslim, and the Sunan); and tears are a sign of Divine acceptance insha-Allah.
