Detailed About MCQs

The first person to be buried in Jannatul Baqi was As’ad Bin Zararah (رضي الله عنه), an Ansari companion who died soon after the Prophet ‘s (ﷺ) migration to Madinah. As’ad Bin Zurara (رضي الله عنه) was a companion of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and the first chief in Medina to become a Muslim. In spring 623 As’ad suffered from an illness, similar to diphtheria or meningitis, that entailed a rattling in his throat. As’ad died within days, at the beginning of Shawwal, i.e., in April 623.
