Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, and we do not run ads. But recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.
No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)
The Sitinā 'Āishah, also known as the Maqam Sitna `Ayisha (مقام السيدة عائشة), is either a small Islamic funerary-shrine purportedly belonging to 'Aiesha the wife of prophet Muhammad or a mosque. It is located south-east of the Maqam Nabi Musa.

It is not certain when the current structure was built. This particular maqam is undated and there's no inscription for its identification.
T. Canaan called this shrine a masjid (mausoleum) and described it as follows, Masdjid sittna ‘Aisha in the neighborhood of Nabi Musa has vault resting on four comer pillars, where the south side has been completely closed, and the eastern and western only partly built.
