  • Since the first time I visited it, the area has been restored with a brand new wall. The area, at the foot of Mount Uhud, has a strong spiritual feeling.

  • Ḥamzah ibn ʿAbd al-Muṭṭalib  was a foster brother, companion and paternal uncle of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. He was martyred in the Battle of Uhud on 22 March 625 (3 Shawwal 3 hijri). His kunyas were "Abū ʿUmārah" and "Abū Yaʿlā". He had the by-names Asad Allāh "Lion of God") and Asad al-Jannah ("Lion of Heaven"), and Muhammad gave him the posthumous title Sayyid ash-Shuhadāʾ.
  • 2 graves were seen inside a boundary. As per the guides of madina, 2 graves were created as per the advice of messenger of allah (s) after the battle of Uhd. One of them for shaheed Hamza ibn abdul muthalib (r) along with his nephew Abdullah ibn Jahsh and other one for Mis'ab ibn Umair (r).
