Location of Hudaybiyya

Ḥudaybīyya (Arabic:حديبية) is a village about one station (about 24 km) away from Mecca and 9 stations away from Medina. A part of this village is inside the sanctuary of Mecca and a part of that is outside the sanctuary and its name is adopted from the name of the Well of Hudaybiyya or a tree called Hadba' which existed in that region.[1]

One of the most important events happened in this region has been Hudaybiyya Peace Treaty which was the written peace treaty signed in 6/628 between the Prophet (s) and the polytheists of Mecca and is mentioned in the Qur'an 48. Also, the Pledge of al-Ridwan happened in this region.[2]

People in Mecca who want to perform al-'umra al-mufrada should exit Haram area and perform ihram in the first spot out of Haram (adna l-hill). It is recommended to perfrom ihram from one of the three miqats, including Hudaybiyya.[3]
