Imam al-Shafi'i Mausoleum
I�m a journalist from Munich/Germany and interested in the Mausoleum of ash-shafi'i. I�ve been there last year and the Imam there showed me a footprint which is supposed to be a footprint of the prophet. I asked him how the footprint made it�s way to cairo (as the prophet has never been there) - but I forgot what he told me. Does anyone by chance know the story/tale? It would be a great help to me...
