Al-Abbas, the Prophet's uncle, presided at the preparation for the burial, and the body was duly washed and perfumed.
There was some dispute between the Quraish and the Ansars as to the place of burial; however, Abu Bakr settled the dispute by affirming that he had heard the Prophet say that a prophet should be buried at the very spot where he died. A grave was accordingly dug in the ground within the house of Aisha and under the bed on which the Prophet died. In this grave the body was buried, and the usual rites were performed by those who were present.
Thus ended the glorious life of the Prophet Muhammad. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.
