Famous historic masjid in Medina, not to be missed if you are there as 2 rakat nafl prayer is supposed to be equivalent to an umrah. Also very interesting from historic perspective.

Was great to be where some of the islamic history originated and to stand in the same place where our beloved prophet stood - an absolutely awesome feeling.

I prayed Juma'a prayer in it, in the first day for me in Madina it was not as my plan, but I felt it's better like that. after I finished I found some people selling dates, mints, toys and hand made staff, they were all great.

An important place to include in your visit to Madina--The Mosque is about 3-5 kilometers far from the prophet's mosque. It is said to be the first mosque the prophet visited when he arrived to Madina from Makkah.

Great feeling and spirituality. Very limited parking areas so try to avoid traffic time which is usually at Asr prayers.

Visited this mosque twice. Once in Ramadan 2014 and now during my hajj trip. Performing slash here when leaving your home or hotel in wudu is equivelant to performing umrah.

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).
