Rawdah-i Rasool (Tomb of Prophet Muhammad pbuh)

Prophet Muhammad's pbuh grave lies within the confines of what used to be his wife Aisha's and his house. During his lifetime it adjoined the mosque. The mosque was expanded during the reign of Caliph al-Walid I to include his tomb. The Prophet's grave is an important reason for the particular high sanctity of the mosque. Millions visit it every year, since it is a tradition to visit the mosque after the pilgrimage to Mecca.
