Hadith on Madinah: The Prophet loves his city Medina

Anas ibn Malik reported: When the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, returned from a journey and saw the walls of Medina from afar, he would quicken his pace and, if he was on an animal, he would make it gallop out of his love for Medina.

عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضِيَ اللَّهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ كَانَ إِذَا قَدِمَ مِنْ سَفَرٍ فَنَظَرَ إِلَى جُدُرَاتِ الْمَدِينَةِ أَوْضَعَ رَاحِلَتَهُ وَإِنْ كَانَ عَلَى دَابَّةٍ حَرَّكَهَا مِنْ حُبِّهَا
