Where are Adam and Eve buried

Where is Adam's tomb, peace and blessings be upon him?

Praise be to Allah ..


There is certainly no known place on earth that buries the body of a prophet, except the place in "al Madinah al Munawwarah" where the prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him, was buried. Some scholars have said that the tomb of Allah's friend Ibrahim (Abraham), peace be upon him, is in "al Khalil" in Palestine. One part of them said that his grave is there and can be assigned to him and the other part said that the place of his death has been confirmed, but the specific place where he was buried cannot be proven. And everything else but these views is mere calumny and none of it has been verified.

So said Sheikh al Islam ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah have mercy on him:

As for the tombs of the prophets, the scholars agree on the tomb of the prophet, may Allah bless him, because this place has been confirmed by many traditions and also by his companions. As for the tomb of the Prophet Ibrahim, most people agree that the known place among them is his tomb; and another group negates this. This negation is narrated by Malik when he said: There is no known tomb of a prophet on this earth except the tomb of our prophets, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, because the majority of people agree that this is his tomb; and the evidence for this is abundant and also with the People of the Book, but knowing the tombs of the prophets is in itself of no use in the sense of Islamic law; and the guarding of this matter is not of religion, for if it were of religion, Allah would guard it, as He guarded all religion. And usually only someone asks this, who would like to offer his prayer or prayers of supplication there and other things about the forbidden innovations in Islam.

"Majmuu al Fatawa" (444/27).

And he said may Allah have mercy on him:

A group of scholars said, and among them Abdul Aziz al Kinani: All these tombs which are ascribed to the Prophets are incorrect except the tomb of the Prophet, peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him, and the tomb of Ibrahim, peace be upon him.

"Majmuu al Fatawa" (446/27).

And al Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Baz, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

No tomb of a prophet is known except for our prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and whoever claims that there are tombs of prophets in Oman or elsewhere is a liar and this statement is incorrect except for the tomb from our Prophet, peace and blessings on him, in al Medinah and also the tomb of Ibrahim in al Khalil in Palestine; the location of the grave is known there. As for the rest of the prophets, their graves are not known, not from Nuh, from Hud, from Salih or from anyone except Ibrahim in al Khalil.

And what is meant is that all the tombs of the prophets are unknown except for the two noble prophets, peace and blessings on both Muhammad and Ibrahim; Muhammad in al Madinah and this is the evident and existing consensus of the Muslims as well as the tomb of Ibrahim, peace and blessings be upon him, which is in the cave of al Khalil. As for the other prophets, however, the People of Knowledge reported that these graves are not known.

"Nur ala ad-Darb" (strip 642)


Statements have been passed on about the specific destination of Adam's tomb, peace be upon him, but none of these are correct. So said Abu Nasr Muhammad bin Abdillah al Imam, may Allah give him success: Statements have already been made about the clarification of the location of his grave, i.e. Adam, peace on him:

1. Al Daruqutni brought out in his book "As-Sunnah" about ibn Abbas that Jibril (Gabriel) prayed with the angels on Adam and then buried him in Masjid al Khif.

In this statement, however, Abdul Rahman bin Malik bin Maghul is interrupted, as al Daruqutni said.

And this can also be found in Ibn Asakir and Ibn Sad in “al Dar al Manthur” (334/3); except that al Kalbi is present in the chain of narration and he is a liar and Abu Salih is classified as weak.

Abu al Sheikh also reported this statement on Mujahid, but it is incorrect because there are a lot of liars in the chain.

2. Abu al Sheikh brought out about Khalid bin Madan in “al ´Udhmah”, when Adam died 150 men carried him from India to Bayt al Maqdis and buried him there, leaning his head against a rock.

However, there are unknown narrators in this statement, and more powerful than this, that this statement is from the Israiliyat (stories of Israel).

In summary, one can say that the location of Adam's tomb is unknown and considering the previous statements that any claim about the location of his tomb is made without knowledge.


The author of the book "al Manar" (220/3) mentioned that he saw mausoleums in India which are worshiped without Allah, especially the mausoleum of Adam, his wife and mother, knowing that it is not Adam, peace be upon him , is. That is what makes ignorance out of people.

"Tahdhir al Muslimin min al Ghulu fi Qubur al Salihin" (78)

And al Sheikh Muhammad bin Nasir al Din al Albani, may Allah have mercy on him, said:

There is no confirmed tradition that says that Ishmael, peace be upon him, or other prophets were buried in al Masjid al Haram. None of this was passed on in the admissible books of the Sunnah as well as in the Musnad of Imam Ahmad and in the three lexicons of At-Tabari as well as other books from the known collections. And this is one of the most powerful signs that this tradition is weak, rather it is viewed as a lie by some investigators in this science. And the purpose of these problematic statements with weak and broken chains of narration was reported by al Azraqi in "Akhbar Makkah" (pages 39, 219, 220). No respect is given to these statements, even if some people of the renewals in Islam are doing mischief with them.

And Allah knows best.
