it  was  an  oasis  famed  for  the  dates  from  its  palm  groves.  It  was  a  long  journey  by  Muhammad(SM)  and  Aminah  enjoyed  the  pleasant  climate  and  the  company  of  their  relatives  for  a  month.  But,  tragically,  on  the  journey  back  to  Makkah,  Aminah  fell  ill  and  died.
