Big and clean mosque that you have to pay a visit. Best place to find dates, especially during summer time. They have many kinds of dates, some of them are in the fridge and they are fresh. Very nice for Ifthar..

This was a very spiritual journey. The kids love the area around the mosque , as it is well kept considering it is so old . It is relatively cheap by taxi from medina but cheaper back to medina !

It is recommended that pilgrims visit the mosque and pray at least 2rakah of prayers. Like everywhere else that pilgrims visit it's always busy with people going in and out all day all year round. It's gott better over the years.

This mosque if I am not wrong was one of the first mosques in Medina. And it is said that 2 rakah Nafl prayer here is equivalent to one Umrah that is accepted by Allah. Alhamdulliah. You don't want to miss

Nice looking big mosque. The first ever mosque under the Muslim era. The second after the AL-AKSA. Prayer here is equivalent to Um-rah.

We went twice, as you get the same reward as if you had completed an Umra just by reading a salah or Nafl there. A beautiful white simply mosque.

Everything is good,but if I can expect, the access to ablution and toilet between man and woman should be arranged better. And provide more zam-zam water in the area for jamaah.
