Masjid Jummah

We personally did not get a chance to go inside, as the Masjid is only open during prayer times, and the time we passed the Masjid, it was closed ( it was between Asr and Maghrib prayer). I managed to get few snapshots from outside, whie I was on the car.


Masjid Jummah, on the boundary of Madinah marks the site where the Prophet (s.a.w.) led the first Jummah salat, shortly after his Hijrah (migration) from Makkah. It is about 2.5 km from Masjid-e-Nabwi.
The Prophet (s.a.w.) left Quba on a Friday to head into Madinah. About a kilometer from Quba he passed the village of Banu Salim bin Auf. The people of Banu Salim implored: “O Prophet of Allah, you stayed at the homes of our cousins for a number of days, reward us too with something, for they will pride themselves over us till the Day of Judgement that you stayed with them”. The Prophet (s.a.w.) dismounted and offered his first Jummah in their locality.
