Where newly born babies
Even today the graveyard where the newly born
babies had been buried alive by the Makkahs people in dark ages
may be seen.. It is very near to Masjid-Ul-Haram.
If you come out from Masjid-ul-Haram through Fahad gate and walk across slight diagonally to your
right towards main road where there is a traffic
signal . Reaching traffic signal you will see an under ground road. On the
both side of this under ground road , you will see two more roads on ground
level .You come to farther road and walk
in this way the under ground road must come your right hand. After walking
few steps a wall come to just your left hand. it is the boundry wall
of this graveyard but you have to walk for a few yards ahead as to
reach to the main gate. This graveyard is located just in front of a well
kown multistoried hotel---ELAF-UL-HUDA--. This
is called muhalla shabeka and because of this fact the name of this
particular graveyard is known as MAQBARA SHABEKA (SHABEKA GRAVEYARD)
This is the stone
of shabeka grave yard
This is the exact place where the newly born babies had
makkas' people in dark ages.
Before the holy birth of prophet Muhammad
sallalla ho allihiwasalam, the people of Makkah were involved in many bad
social customs in which the burial of newly born babies alive was very much
embarassing and painful.After revealing vahee the dark age came to an end
and the preaching of islam and quran played very important role to
stop this unhuman activity among the people of Makkah.
This spot is still in makkah and ppilgrims may see it easily as it is on
walking distance from Masjid-ul-Haram.
