1. The most pious and spiritual grave yard of the world is called, “Jannat-ul-Baqqi” where a number of companions (RA), wives daughters and other family members of Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allaihi wasallam are lying to rest. In the time of Prophet sallalla ho allaihi wasallam live hood, this grave yard was thought to be out side the Madina city but after the vast extension,now it has now come just adjacent to Masjid-e-Nabvi. If you come out from Masjid-e-Nabvi, through Baqqi Gate, or Jibrael (AH) Gate you will see few yards ahead a boundary wall at a little height. This is JANNAT -UL -BAQQI’S wall. Stairs are made to reach at the height.

2. Men can visit this grave yard going inside but ladies are not allowed even to go up near the wall of the graveyard. Ladies must present their Salaam outside Baqqi. Baqqi is very clean and tidy grave yard. No bush and tree is there. All the graves are made of mud. No concrete constructions over the graves are made. Pavement and passages are made for easy walking but there is no sign over the graves have been given to know the name of the buried personality. Some guides (Moaleems) tell about graves. Squared boundary of half feet high has been built around all prominent graves.

Good informations and presentations. Especially about Hazrat Ibrahim R.A. (Son of Prophet Mohammed P.B.U.H.)’s death during childhood. Because i really was unclear on that. Thanks

Additional info : He was born 628 A.D,

His mother was um-ul-momineen Syeda Maria Qubtia (R.A),an Egyptian whom the king of Egypt sent to Prophet Muhammad as a handmaid servant and Prophet Muhammad married her in 627.Masha’Allah.

Apart from that info,

Prophet Mohammed P.B.U.H had another son from his first wife Khadijah r.a.. Al qasim. Passed away when he was still a baby.
