There used to be garden belongs to Abu Talha raliallahu anhu behind Masjid Al Nabawi, during the time of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ). It was known as Bir ha. It was worthier than many of the Ansar owned asset at that time. Prophet (ﷺ) often visited the garden and drunk water from its well. It is reported by anas (رضي الله عنه).
that the water of the well is sweet and abundant.
Then Allah revealed the the Quranic verse
“You will not attain unto piety until you spend of that which Ye love.” [3: 92].
After hearing this versing Abu Talhah (رضي الله عنه) told prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) O, Prophet of Allah! I love Bir Ha very much. As Allah wants us to spend precisely that which we love, I make over that garden to be spent in the path of Allah as you please.”
Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) was very pleased with what Abu Talhah Raliallahu Anhu said. Prophet replied What a fine present (to Allah)! I think it would be best utilized if you distribute it among your own heirs.” Abu Talha (رضي الله عنه) went and acted upon the Prophet’s(ﷺ) advice.
it is reported that the garden of Abu Talha used top be near the Masjid al Nabawi. due to the expansion of the mosque it has become apart of the mosque.
it was at the right side of the mosque a shown in the picture above. its well as been closed. But i am not aware of its state now. according to some sources the well has been marked for its location as the picture shown below.
