The city of Madina in Saudi Arabia is known for housing several water wells that are connected to the Prophet’s journeys. Among them is the Uthman ibn Affan well, known as the well of Rummat, which flows with water for the past 1,400 years.

Near the well there is a mosque and large farm housing palm trees, and a number of plants and flowers that benefit from it. However, authorities are working on a plan to further develop the area.
