Quba

It's a very beautiufl masjid mashallah! 

"The Quba Masjid, in the outlying environs of Medina in Saudi Arabia, is the oldest masjid in the world. Its first stones were positioned by the prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) on his emigration from the city of Mecca to Medina and the masjid was completed by his companions. Muhammad spent more than 20 nights in this masjid (after migrating) praying qasr (a short prayer) while waiting for Ali whose house was behind this masjid.
According to Islamic tradition, offering two rakaʿāt of nafl prayers in the Quba Masjid is equal to performing one Umrah. Quba Masjid is the first masjid built in the history of Islam and was built as soon as Muhammad arrived on the Hijra."
