Masjid Al-Nabawi (also known as the “Prophet’s Mosque”) is a mosque originally built by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) situated in the city of Medina.

The site was originally the Prophet’s house when he settled there after his emigration to Medina. He helped build Masjid Al-Nabawi, which served as a community center, a court, and a religious school.

When the Prophet (PBUH) passed away, he was buried in the mosque.

The first two Caliphs, Abu Bakr (RA) and Umar (RA), were also buried next to the Prophet (PBUH) in the place that had been the Prophet’s home, which is covered by the famous green dome today.

Masjid Al-Nabawi remains the second holiest site in Islam and is the second largest mosque in the world.

Open 24 hours every day, it is a major pilgrimage site and many people who perform the Hajj go on to Medina before or after Hajj to visit the mosque as a mark of respect.
