As per as Islamic believe is concern visiting masjid qiblatain if you are in holy land is must to visit. The mosque is very neat at all times very conducive place for worship. More than enough rest rooms and places for abolution and other conveniences are there for the worshipers with adequate water supply for both drinking and other purposes.... More

This mosque is situated in the Holy city of Madina. It is famous for the fact that during a prayer the prophet was ordered to change direction from Baitul Muqaddas towards Khana Kaaba. The structure of the building has been renovated and now it is not possible to Judge the old direction.

Serene, peaceful, beautiful is what this mosque is. The place where the Prophet was instructed to change his direction of worship from Bait-al-Muaqadis to Bait-al-Haram(Mecca). A must visit when coming to Medina.

There is a great history behind this mosque. This was the only mosque where Asr Salaat was performed partially in the direction of Masjid-ul-aqsa and Masjid-al-haram when the Qibla direction change was announced during the prayer. It's a must visit place in Medina.

This was another ziyarat we did while in Madina this is where the Nabi Mogamad Saw got the wagi to turn from Al Aqsa mosque and to start praying toward Haram Shareef emotional as we visting palestine first and the immense gratitude you felt towards your creator was priceless, everything seem to fit like a puzzle.

Unique place with two Qibla - direction toward people face up during their pray. Muslims were faced up toward Jerusalem and Masjid Al Aqsa, During their pray in this masjid, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him turned toward Kaba in Mecca. Muslims followed him. That is why this mosque is called Masjid al-Qiblatain, which means the Mosque with two Qibla.
