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 the first mosque in the history of islam , and the first large one that you see when you enter medinah if you came by road from Mekkah. The latest renovation was a total rebuild and happened in the 90s so the current mosqoue is quite large in size and has very good ablution facilities. The architecture is not... More

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
