Footprints of the prophet Muhammad


According to written and oral sources, the prohpet Muhammad left imprints of his bare feet on a number of stones. Some of these footprints are preserved in situ, where they were left by the prophet Muhammad, and other footprints were moved and later preserved in mosques, shrines, and tombs of prominent Muslim figures. Some of these footprints were collected and are now housed in the Topkopi Museum in Istanbul.
