Abu Talib Cemetery

From WikiHaj

Abū Ṭālib cemetery or al-Maʾlāt cemetery (المعلاة) is a large area beside al-Hajun Bridge and is now the cemetery for the inhabitants of Mecca. Previously it was known as “Shi'b-e-Abi Dubb”. Abd Manaf, Abd al-Muttalib, Abu Talib, Khadija bt. Khuwaylid and many of Sahaba, the followers and scholars are interred there. Some have wrongly supposed that Shi'b Abi Talib is located here.
