[2] Those Sahaabah Who Died in Makkah


Abdur Rahmaan Bin Abee Bakr. He died suddenly at a mountain called Al-Hub’shiy close to Makkah. This was mentioned by Ibnul Atheer. Al-Haafidh Abu Umar said: It (i.e. the Al-Hub’shiy Mountain) was ten miles from Makkah. Our Shaikh As-Saaghaaniy said: He [i.e Abdur-Rahmaan Bin Abee Bakr (radiyallaahu-anhu)] was carried to Makkah by men and buried there.


Abdullah Ibn Az-Zubayr Ibn Al-Awwaam was killed in Makkah and was buried there. His head was taken to Makkah and then to khurasaan.


Abdullah Bin Kurayz died in Makkah and was buried at Arafah.

Abdullaah Bin Umar was buried at Fakh. It is said that (he was buried) at the wall of Umm Hurmaan. It may be that he was buried between Fakh and the wall of Umm Hurmaan.


Abdullah Bin Qais- Abu Moosaa Al-Ash’ariy -died at a place two miles from kufah.

Shaikh Muhammad Baazmool said that in Al-Isaabah (2/360)- in the biography of Abu Moosaa Al-Ash’ari -a difference of opinion is mentioned about whether he died at Koofah or Makkah. The place that is two miles from Koofah is (called) Ath-Thawiyyah. Al-Fayrooz Aabaadiy stated in I’thaarah Al-Hujoon’ page 12 that he (i.e. Abu Moosaa) died in Makkah and it was (also) said that he died at Ath-Thawiyyah, two miles from Koofah. The first statement is correct (i.e. he died in Makkah) [Footnote 1.page 23]
