al-Ghars Well (Bir al-Ghars)

Located approximately one kilometer north of Masjid Quba, the Al-Ghars well was a place from which the Prophet drank and made a request that he be bathed with its water after his demise.

Ibn Majar quoted Ali ibn Abu Talib as saying, the Prophet said: “When I die, wash me with seven water-skins from Al-Ghars Well. He also used to drink from this well.”
