Bir Usman – The Well of Usman

Share This Post

The Well of Uthman, also known as Bir Uthman or Bir Al-Uthman, is a historical well located in the city of Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is named after Uthman ibn Affan, the third caliph of the Islamic empire, who had the well dug during his reign.

According to Islamic tradition, the well was dug to provide water for the people of Medina during a time of drought. Uthman ibn Affan paid for the well to be dug using his own money and it became a vital source of water for the local community.

The well has a diameter of around 6 meters and is approximately 125 feet deep. It was constructed using stones and bricks and features a spiral staircase that leads down to the water level. The water in the well is still used today for irrigation and other purposes.

The well is considered to be an important historical site in Medina and is visited by many pilgrims who come to pay their respects to Uthman ibn Affan and to see the well that he had dug for the people of Medina. The site is also significant for its architectural and engineering significance, as it represents a remarkable feat of construction given the time period in which it was built.

Overall, the Well of Uthman is a testament to the generosity and foresight of Uthman ibn Affan, who helped to ensure the survival of his community during a time of need by providing them with access to water.
