Description

Masjid ShuhadaUhud is a famous mosque located just a 10-minute drive from Al Masjid Nabawi in Medina. This mosque holds a sacred place in Islam and attracts many visitors every year.

Islamic history

The Mosque is considered a vital historic landmark by Muslims as this is where a very major battle in Islam, the battle of Uhud, took place. Followers of The Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) who fought with him in the battle of Uhud are buried beside the mosque. Among them is Hazrat Ḥamzahibn Abd al-Muṭṭalib, who was a companion and a dear uncle of the Prophet. He is buried near Mount Uhud in the Uhad Martyrs Cemetery. 

Pilgrims come to pay their respects to the martyrs, especially during the month of Ramadan. Standing at the famous Archer’s hill, Muslims experience a spiritual awakening and can go back in time, imagining the battle happening in front of them.

Layout

Made up of white stones, this mosque has one dome and two minarets. From the south, the mosque is partially hidden by the Jabal Ramah, while Mount Uhud can clearly be seen behind the mosque. 

A blend of traditional and modern architecture, Masjid Shuhada Uhud is the largest mosque in the city after Masjid anNabawi. It can hold up to 15,000 worshippers at a time. At night, the white mosque seems to be emanating light from its alabaster structure. Seven smaller mosques are also located in the vicinity. 

Facilities

The mosque has an administrative block that has wudhu stations installed for the pilgrims with special facilities for people with disabilities.There is a small market near the mosque which is famous for its carpets and dates. People visiting the mosque should try the fresh dates that are sold at a cheaper price after Asar Prayer.

This Masjid reminds me of who we are as Muslims and how those before us fought for Islam. This place gives me an opportunity to reflect over my life and how I need to always serve Almighty Allah because nobody knows their time of death. I'm more than glad that I'm a Muslim and forever cherish that gift from Allah
