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.

The place is huge and as with all things in Saudi, all original features have been demolished and replaced partly due to necessity... More

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!!

This is the oldest mosque in the world and you must visit this mosque when you are in Madinah. It is only 10 minutes drive from the Masjid e Nabawi. According to Islamic tradition, offering two rakaʿāt of nafl prayers in the Quba Mosque is equal to performing one Umrah. It is advisable to go there in the morning with... More

He later went back to finish the structure with the help of his companions. Muhammad used to... More
