Beautiful Mosque, a bit far off from Madinah, Nice to go pray there and remember what Allah truly wants from us, to have faith in HIM and not on worldly monies and help.

Unfortunately could not visit this mosque, because of some unknown reasons. We had a look from a distance. It looks very beautiful, only because, so many Sahaba burried there too.

The city of tranquility and no one has ever said otherwise. The difference between Medina and Mecca is like night and day. I would always suggest going to Mecca first and then Medina.

It is a mosque but the history is very rich at this place. One needs a local guide to tell the actual history behind this place and the Battle of Badr which was just behind this mosque and there is a dried well near the small mounds.
