A map detailing the route taken by Abrahah al-Ashram and his Abyssinian army as they marched from Aksumite-occupied Ṣanʿāʾ in Yemen to Makkah in the Year of the Elephant—the same year Prophet Muḥammad (ﷺ) was born, circa 570 CE. The map also shows the location where the tribe of Khathʿam led by Nufayl b. Ḥabīb was defeated by Abrahah’s army. Axum, the capital of Abyssinia (Ḥabashah), is labelled along with the cities of Najrān, Māʾrib, al-Ṭāʾif, Makkah, Jeddah, and the Port of ʿAden.

    Brilliantly detailed map of a very significant event shortly before the birth of the beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم and, by extension, the Deen itself. The defeat of Abraha and his army firmly established the Quraysh’s spiritual dominance throughout Arabia at the time and is the subject of an entire Surah in the Noble Qur’an. While we may never receive a glimpse into the past, this map allows us to visualize the journey Abraha took towards the Ka’aba… and his demise.

    The map clearly highlights the path Abraha and his army took, wiping out several tribes along the way. It also provides a view of the Christian Kingdom of Aksum (Abyssinia/Habasha), which modern-day Yemen belonged to at the time. Masha’Allah. Amazing work, as per usual. Highly recommended, 10 out of 10!

    Great map and I love the work. The sentence needs to be clearer about Khuthum. The ‘Red Sea’ label also needs to be flipped so it reads bottom to top (like the Blue Nile River)
