This is a plot of land not far from where the mosque of the prophet stood and the houses of his companions around it were built as living quarters. This land was used as a cemetery for the Muslims. Baqi lies to the west of the town of Madina and here are graves of Ibrahim(AS), Prophet’s only son and also the grave of his daughter Fatima(AS). There are graves of Prophet's grand son Imam Hasan(AS), Imam Ali Ibnul Hussain(AS), Zainul Abedeen(AS), Imam Muhammad Baqir(AS) and Imam Ja’afar Sadiq .
The cemetery of Baqii, as in the history of the shrines, was destroyed by the Wahabis in 1932. "It looked like a town was razed to the ground. All over the cemetery nothing was to be seen but little indefinite mounds of earth and stonesblocks of stone , pieces of timber, iron bars, and a broken rubble of cement and bricks strewn aboutbeen. It was like the broken remains of a town which had demolished by an earth quake, . All was a wilderness of ruined building material and tombstones, not ruined by a casual but raked away from their places and ground small." (Islam World).
