Quba Mosque

Local nameMasjid Quba مسجد قباء
LocationMedina, Saudi Arabia

The Quba Mosque is a mosque in the outlying environs of Medina, Saudi Arabia. Initially, the mosque was built 6 kilometres off Medina in the village of Quba, before Medina got expanded to include this village. Depending on whether the Mosque of the Companions in the Eritrean city of Massawa is older or not, it may be the first mosque in the world that dates to the lifetime of the Islamic Nabi Muhammad in the 7th century CE. According to legend, its first stones were positioned by Muhammad as soon as he arrived on his emigration from the city of Mecca to Medina, and the mosque was completed by his companions.
