It is very well maintained and quite big mosque. Parking was very easy. Good sign postings for everything and it was easy to navigate in and around the mosque.

The first Masjid of Islam,a few miles outside of Madinah, this masjid is very spiritual and beautiful. There is great merit in performing salah here. The only thing one needs to be careful of is there was sadly much shoving and pushing in the women's area to both leave and enter the masjid. People praying in the Masjid were climbed... More

Foundation of this MASJID was laid by the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the direction of Qabla was also set by Him. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said that here prayer of 2 rakaats has the blessings / worth equivalent to performing Umrah.

You know this is a special place when you arrive and see a notice telling you that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) is believed to have said a prayer here is worth the good deeds of one umrah! The place is huge and as with all things in Saudi, all original features have been demolished and replaced partly due to necessity... More

This mosque is a must each time you come to Madinah. It's clean and well cared for. Its two tall minarets make a good background for a picture.

Visiting masjid Quabaa and praying 2 rakaat there equals doing Omra. I recommand everyone to do it. Taxis can take you there. And if you come with a travel agency, make sure they include it!!
