This is the blessed place where the best of Mankind was born in the month of Rabi’ Al Awwal in the Year of the Elephant.

It is located in the old Banu Hashim district in which lived all the family members of the clan of Banu Hashim, including the Prophet (SAW).

Previously it used to be a place for prayer and Seerah lessons until it was destroyed by the authorities and then later reinstated as a library.
