This is the first Masjid in Islam. It has a unique feature which is if we perform 2 nafil rakat of prayers then it is like to perform an Umrah, according to Hadees by Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) (GOD forbidden me if i was wrong).

A must visit for anyone who comes to Madinah. There will always be plenty of visitors at any time yet I feel very calm in this place. We made a brief stop just long enough for the people in our group to perform the 2 rakaat solat.

It's a must do while touring Al Madina, it's the first mosque to be ever built, it's also huge and has got nice interior to it, it's around 10-15 minutes drive from the center

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.
