Salalah-Maqam of Nabi Imran

Depending on who you ask, Imran is either 1) the father of Moses or 2) the father of Mary. Either way, his maqam is in the heart of the town of Salalah and so it was relatively easy to find. My friend dropped me off in front, and I went into the mosque, prayed Asr, listened to the post-Asr lecture, and then went and read some Quran at Imran's grave. Waves of Pakistani, Indian, and Bengali families kept pouring in to circnambulate the grave, kissing the flowers piled on either end and at intervals along the grave, which stretched the length of a narrow room.
