25. Hijr (Wall) of Isma’il


قَالَ أَبُو عَبْدِ اللٌّهِ (ع): إِنَّ إِسْمَاعِيلَ دَفَنَ أُمَّهُ فِي الْحَجْرِ وَ جَعَلَ لَهُ حَائِطاً لِئَلاَّ يُوَطَّا قَبْرَهَا.

Abu ‘Abdillah [Imam Ja’far Ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq] (peace be upon him) said, “Isma’il buried his mother (Hajrah) in the (area) of the Hijr and then built a semi-circle shaped wall over it so that people would not step upon her grave.”
