  • Tomb of Usman Dan Fodio


    The tomb of the Islamic scholar and the acknowledged founder of the state, Shehu Usman Dan Fodio is located within the state. It is situated on Sultan Bello road, close to Shehu’s Mosque and not far away from the palace of the Sultan. The area is dedicated to the tombs of Usman Dan Fodio and his relatives.

    The Hubbare (tomb) of Shehu Dan Fodio (founder of Sokoto Caliphate, Fodio Dynasty) is located in Sokoto town near the famous Mosque of Shehu, near the Sultan of Sokoto’s Palace.

    Hubbaren is the place were the founder of Sokoto Caliphate (formed in 1804) was buried. The founder was buried there along with some members of his family and his descendants including Muhammad Maccido, the 19th Emir who died in ADC airline Flight 53 air crash in 2006.
    At first, on reaching the place, people are seen waiting for visitors to come and give them alms. Before entering the first door to the tomb, one must remove his shoes.

    There are two police men guarding the place. When someone enters the first corridor, the person will take a walk of 200 yards before he gets to the location of the Tomb. Upon getting to the entrance, the person has to greet the “Wakili” (that is the designated custodian of the tomb).


    There are people around the tomb begging for alms. Upon entering the main place were the Shehu’s grave, an usher ask the visitor to pray for his heart desires. When he is through with this, he is then then accompanied to another grave. This is the Aliyu Jedo’s grave (Aliyu Jedo was Shehu’s commander during the Holy war).

    Next after Jedo’s grave is a room where Nana Asama’u’s grave lays, the daughter of Dan Fodio From then on, the person visits the next room where Hassan Dan Mu’azu’s grave is located.

    Close to the grave of Dan Mu’azu are the graves of Shehu’s wives and other children. Afterwards, the person is directed to the grave of Late Maccido which is bit far from the rest.
