The grave of Muhammad Asad - possibly the most precious Islamic scholar of the 20th century. Born as Leopold Weiss, he was a Jewish-born Austro-Hungarian journalist, traveler, writer, linguist, thinker, political theorist and diplomat. Asad was one of the most influential European Muslims of the 20th century. I recommend reading his moving autobiography (up to the age of 32), 'The Road to Mecca', which apart from the Qur'an itself is possibly the most accessible book to Islam for non-Muslims.
