It is not known with certainty the burial place of any Prophet (peace be upon them), except the grave of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah.

Hence, the location of Prophet Isma’il’s (Ishmael) (peace be upon him) grave is not known.

Shaikh Al-Albani (may Allah have Mercy on him) said, “No words can be authentically ascribed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) that indicate that Isma’il (peace be upon him) or any other noble Prophet was buried in the Grand Mosque (at Makkah), and nothing of this sort is mentioned in any of the trustworthy books of hadith.”
