"Bury me in this beloved place"

The grave is situated on the outskirts of Makkah by the side of a highway - it is an isolated area, almost in the middle of nowhere. It's a starkly simple white wall which most people pass, not knowing who is buried there. Sayyida Maimuna, the wife of the Prophet (صلي الله عليه و سلم), became ill in Makkah and instead of being buried in the city, she insisted she be buried at this site. Shaykh Hamza explained this was the place where Sayyida Maimuna spent her wedding night with the Prophet (صلي الله عليه و سلم). Out of her intense love for the Prophet (صلي الله عليه و سلم), she chose it to be her final resting place.
