Finding Guénon's tomb

Since I've had a number of enquiries about how to find Guénon's tomb, here are the directions:
  1. Cross Salah Salem from the Azhar to the Northern Cemetery, the Qarafa al Kubra, also known as "the city of the dead."
  2. Look on the left for the mausoleum of the Tawil family (see photo), which is easily identifiable.
  3. Go through the small archway in front of the Tawil mausoleum, and ask someone for the tomb of Shaykh Abd al-Wahid Yahya. It is nearby.
