Mount Thawr this reddish mountain was named after the Arabic word Thawr for ox, as it looks like a bull. Two different stories were told about Mount Thawr, which are the most famous and most correct stories. It is either the small reddish, round shaped mountain behind Mount Uhud, known to Medina people, or according to the second story, the mountain called Mount Al-Khazzan (the tank). It is located on the old airport road by the end of Mount Uhud.
It is the border where Medina fence starts from the north, and extends southwards to Mount Eir. The Prophet (PBUH) said: “Medina is a border between Eir and Thawr. Whoever commits an act or shelters/accepts a person who commits an act therein, will have the curse of Allah, the angels and all the people”.
On the day of judgment the Almighty Allah will not accept any repentance or ransom from him, and whoever claims to other than his father, or takes allies other than his allies (meaning the one who exits from the alliance of Muslims), will have the curse of the Almighty Allah, the angels and all the people.
On the day of judgment the Almighty Allah will not accept any repentance or ransom from him. Muslims have one undertaking, to be complied with by all of them.”
