The graveyard of Makkah


Is this Hadith sahih?

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is reported to have said, “What an excellent graveyard this is” [referring to the graveyard of Makkah Mukarramah”



Imam Ahmad (rahimahullah) and other Muhaddithun have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with an acceptable chain.

(Musnad Ahmad, vol. 1 pg. 367. Refer: Majma’uz Zawaid, vol. 3 pg. 297)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
