A mosque on the once outskirts of Medina, now totally encircled by the city, was a place of worship for the muslims and especially if 2 nafil are prayed on a Saturday, they have the blessing worth of an umra. Must visit when in Medina.

Quba Mosque was built on the same place where first masjid was built by Prophet Muhammad. During hijrah, his travel from Mecca to Medina, he rest himself near Medina in the place named Quba. There he built the first mosque.

I never visit Al Madinah without going to Masjid Quba and pray there too. You may find difficulty to park your car there esp. when it is the prayer time, although there are plenty of car parking spaces
