Hud's tomb

Hud's tomb

near Salalah

Hud’s tomb is commonly accepted to be in Hadhramut in Yemen and, as Ibn Battuta notes, there is also one in Damascus, but “God knows best”. Hud is a Koranic prophet of the people of 'Ad who are said to have lived in al-Ahqaf which is roughly in present-day Dhofar province and the extreme eastern part of Yemen.
