This maqam/shrine in Hadhramaut, Yemen, is believed to be the burial place of the Prophet Hud (عليه السلام). He was sent as a prophet to the people of ‘Aad, known for their mighty strength and size. The majority however, rejected his invitation and were destroyed by a powerful wind.

  • The eleventh Surah of the Holy Quran is named after Hud (عليه السلام).
  • His place of burial is also claimed to be in Syria. And Allah (ﷻ) knows best.
