Al Malaa Cemetery

Cemetery in Mecca

Many of the most important members of the Prophet’s family are buried here, including the Prophet’s first wife, Umm Il Mumineen Khadija, his sons Qasim and Abdullah, his uncle Abu Talib and his grandfather Abdul Muttalib. When visiting, remember not to leave flowers or objects on graves, as veneration of graves is frowned upon by Saudi authorities. Women are not permitted in the cemetery.

The cemetery is between Al Hujun Rd and the Second Ring Rd.
