Can anyone be buried in Jannat ul Baqi?

Now the question arises: who gets the chance to be buried in Jannat ul Baqi? Baqi Cemetery is not open to everyone. You cannot use influences to get buried here.

The only criterion to be entitled to be buried in Jannat ul Baqi is where someone dies. If somebody takes his last breath in the city of Madina, he will be allowed to have a grave in Jannat ul Baqi.

If he dies anywhere else in Saudi Arabia, no matter who he is, he will not be buried in the Baqi Cemetery.

I know some people who have lived in Madina for decades and years and never left the city. They are afraid that if they die while they are outside the city of Madina, they will not be able to get a place in Jannat ul Baqi.

This is also one of the reasons that none of the Kings of Saudi Arabia got the opportunity to get buried in Saudi Arabia, as they didn’t die in the city of Madina.
