3 .  The grand father Haji Muhammad Shafi and the  maternal uncle Haji Muhammad Makeen of my mother ( Sajida Begum ) are also buried here. They passed away  performing their 26th and 15th haj in the year 1950 and 1969 respectively. At present their original graves do not exist. Except the graves of well known companions of  Prophet MUHAMMAD sallallaho allihiwasalam all other graves have been demolished by saudi government  time to time so that  many more  muslims  could get place in the mud of this holy and merciful land.

4 . If you come out from masjid-ul-haram through Marwa Gate, which is situated, where the last and seventh round of Saie ends, You will find a market at your left where some shops of hair dressers are situated. When you enter in the wide street of this market named Souq-ul-Lail(in arabic souq means market and lail means night). This street is covered by the squared plastic shade. Both the sides of this street have  mostly gold shops. In local language this street is called CHAPTER MARKET( market of sheds). As soon as this street ends, you will find a mosque. Do not turn anywhere and go straight. Now there is a road. Keep walking on foot path. Now you will find a crossing and traffic signal. Do not turn anywhere walk straight and cross the road. Now the wall of Jannat-ul-Malla will be at your left. Then a main gate will come. It is the main entrance of this Holy Graveyard.

               THIS CEMETRY


1 .  Syedna Abdullah Bin Umer (R.A) was the son of Second Caliph Umer Bin Khattab (R.A). He was the true lover of Prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam. A number of sayings (AHADEES) have been described by him. After Syedna Umer (RA) it was proposed that he (RA) would be the Caliph of muslims but Syedna Umer (R.A) opposed and said that this decision would convert KHALAFAT in to heredity.

2 .  Syedna Abdullah (RA) had a son who once denied to obey the saying of Prophet Muhammad  - "Let the women permit to go in to mosques". Syedna Abdullah became very angry and never spoke to his son after this incident. This act proves how much he (R.A) had loved his Prophet sallalla ho allihi wasalam

3 .  Very few pilgrims know that this great lover of Prophet is lying to rest very near to "Masjid-e-Aisha" in Makkah. When pilgrims go to "Masjid-e-Aisha" by bus, a muhalla named "Muhalla-e-Shuhda" comes to the left hand side where a small mosque is situated. Few yards ahead from this mosque there are three graves in the bottom of a hill. One of them is the grave of Syedna Abdullah bin Umer and remaining two are of his companions. Pilgrims must try to locate this grave to give salute (SALAAM) to the great lover of Prophet sallallaho allihi wasalam.
