Tomb of Hud

This tomb, in Hadhramaut, Yemen belongs to Hud (a.s.) who was sent as a Prophet to the people of ‘Aad.

The people of ‘Aad were known for their strength and size. The majority however, rejected the invitation of Hud (a.s.) and were destroyed by a powerful wind.

The eleventh Surah of the Quran is named after Prophet Hud (a.s.).
