Masjid Quba / Taqwa
This was the first Masjid built by the Muslims. It is situated in a village called Quba on the outskirts of Madinah, therefore a taxi will be
needed to get there. Before going one should make sure one is in a state of purity.
It is Sunnah to visit on Saturday and perform two rak`ahs in the Masjid. In a Hadith it is mentioned that the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) used to visit
Masjid Quba every Saturday.
It has also been mentioned that the Messenger (P.B.U.H.) has said, ‘Whoever purifies him (or her) self at home and then goes to Masjid
Quba and performs Salah, for him is a reward likened to that of `Umrah.’
Ibn Majah
Masjid Jumu`ah
It was here that the first Friday Salah was performed by the Prophet (P.B.U.H.). Near this Masjid was the home of our Nabi’s mother's family.
Masjid Qiblatain
Here, during a Salah which the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was performing, the direction of Qiblah changed from Masjid al-Aq]a to the Ka`bah. Nabi
(P.B.U.H.) changed his direction and those standing behind him also changed their direction.
Masjid Ahzab
In this area there were seven Masajid. It was here that the defensive trench was dug by the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and the Sahabah in the 5th
year of Hijrah, to hold out against the enemies. This was known as the “Battle of the Trench”.
Masjid Miqat
This is the Miqat for those going from Madinah to Makkah. This Masjid is also called Masjid ash-Shajarah (The Masjid of the Tree) because it
is built at the place where the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) rested underneath a tree when going to Makkah.
This Masjid is most commonly known as Masjid Dhul-Hulayfah because it is situated in that area
