The tomb of Prophet Muhammad’s father is in Medina.

In the past Abdullah In return of sham trade, went to Medina. In Medina there were some houses belong to bani-alnajar tribe (who were amene's(Abdullah 's wife) relative),Abdullah went to Nabeghe 's house;a person from that tribe. After some Abdullah became sick and died; according to that time custom, they buried him in Nabeghe 's house.

Prophet’s mother and him went to dar-alnabeghe when he was 6 years old and stayed there for 1 month.

Later, Prophet prayed in dar-alnabeghe several times, so they called it dar-alnabeghe mosque.

Some documents:

-Ibn-saad said from Zahri & Ibn-Abas:after hegira to Medina whenever prophet looked at that place,will said:

«نظر إلي الدار فقال: ههنا نزلت بي أمّي و في هذه الدار قبر أبي عبد الله.»

“my mother and me stayed in that place,and there is my father 's grave"(also in that reference: fasl men tarikh almedina from vaghedi)

-Batnuni said:

«مقام سيّدنا عبدالله والد الرسول... في بيت رجل منهم (بنونجّار) يقال له النّابغة

"Grave of Abdullah,prophet 's father,is in Nabeghe 's house,who was from bani-alnajar tribe"

-kateb Vaghedi said:

«ودُفِنَ فی دار النابغة وهُوَ رَجلٌ من بنی عدی بن نجّار...»

"He buried in dar-alnabeghe which was house of nabeghe, who was from bani-alnajar tribe"(tabaghat,volume1)

-ibn-shebh said:

«قبر عبدالله بن عبدالمطلب فی دارالنابغة»

"Abdullah’s grave exists in dar-alnabeghe"(ibn-shebh 's tarikh-almedina,volume1)

-tabari said:

«وَدُفن فی دار النابغة فی الدار الصغری إذا دخلت الدار عن یَسارِکَ لَیس بین أصحابنا فی ذلک اختلاف»
