assalamu `alaykum sidi

If it is possible, can you please clarify who Sidi al-Yamani is, located right below Sayyidi Yusuf al-Fasi?

I will be visiting Morocco very soon. I was told that Sayyidi `Ali al-Jammal is also buried in Fez, but that his maqam is sometimes difficult to locate. If you are aware of any landmarks, road names, etc that would assist me in locating the maqam it would be much appreciated.

Wasalam

Sidi Alai Jamal is buried in his zawiya just inside Bat Ftuh, it's easy to find if you ask anyone there.

About to travel to Granada. Do you know of the locations of the Awliyah resting there?

Alaykum Salam,

I'm afraid I don't know, I've never had the blessing of going there.

Assalamu alaykum. Beautiful and blessed city masha-Allah. Many Muslims are actually buried beneath the city, may Allah have mercy upon them.

Was hunting for Bab al-Ftuh on google maps. It's listed as 'Bad Ftouh'. Nice satellite pic.
