Bibi ka maqbara aurangabad

The Arabic word Maqbara (مقبرة "mausoleum"; plural: مقابر Maqâbir) is derived from the word Qabr, which means grave. Though maqbara refers to the graves of all Muslims, it refers especially to the graves (Raula or Rauza) of religious figures or Waliyullahs considered to have dedicated their life to Islam, striving to be true Muslims and training others to follow Islam as preached by the Islamic prophet Muhammad. In Asian countries, maqbara also refers to the Dargah of Waliyullahs, Sufis, Sheikhs, Imams, Qutbs and Ghouses. There are a large number of Dargahs of Waliyullahs all over India, and their maqbaras are found therein.
