1 – The Prophet Ādam – upon whom be peace – was buried in Masjid al-Khayf but his exact place of burial was made hidden; just as it established from the following narration of the dear & respected ‘Abdullāh Ibn ‘Abbās [may Allāh Almighty be pleased with him],

“وصلی جبریل بالملائکة یومئذٍ ودفن في مسجد الخیف واحد من قبل القبلة ولحد لہ وکتم قبرہ”

[al-Muntazham li Ibn al-Jawzī, vol. 1, p. 228]

2 – The Prophet Ādam – upon whom be peace – was buried near Hindustān [Ancient India], in Sri Lanka.

3 – He was buried in the Holy & Sacred City of Makkah Mukarramah in Jabal [Mountain] Abī Qubays.

Just as it is stated in Subhah al-Marjān,

“ومنہا قبر آدم علی الجبل الذی نزل علیہ من السماء علی روایة قال الغزالی قیل: دفن بمکة في غار أبی قبیس وقیل علی بوذ بالہند وکان موتہ ثمہ وقال الطبری فی تاریخہ عند وفاة آدم علیہ السلام قال بعضہم قبرہ بالہند علی الجبل الذی نزل علیہ من السماء وقال بعضہم قبرہ بمکة علی جبل أبی قبیس وان حواء ماتت بعد سنة فدفنہا شیث مع آدم بجنبہ”

[Subhah al-Marjān fī Āthār Hindustān, p. 9]
