Mount Uhud

Mount Uhud – this is a mountain north of Medina, Saudi Arabia. With a height of 1,077 meters, it was the site of the second battle between Muslim and Meccan forces. The Battle of Uhud was fought on 19 March, 625 CE, between a force from the small Muslim community of Medina, in what is now north-western Arabia, and a force from Mecca.
Over 70 of the Prophet Mohamed’s companions were killed during the Battle of Uhud, and were buried at the base of the mountain (also the site of the Battle). To this day, many Muslims visit this site.
