Description

The Seven Mosques, also known as the Saba Masjid (Saba Masajid), are a complex of small, historic mosques located on the western side of the Sala’ Mountain in the Blessed City of Medina. ‘Saba’’ means seven and they were named so because the group originally consisted of seven mosques. However, as of today, there are six mosques that are part of the complex. These mosques are near a part of the trench which the Muslims dug during the Battle of The Trench (Khandaq) during the lifetime of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him) time to defend the City of Medina from the Quraysh and thus hold a very important historic significance in Islam.

The Mosques

Each of the six mosques has a historical association with the Battle of Trench. The first mosque in the complex is the Al Fath Mosque which is the largest of all the mosques in the complex and is named so because of ‘Fatah’ or victory during the Battle of Trench. 

The second mosque is the Salman Al Farsi Mosque, which was named after the Sahabah, Salman Al Farsi (RA) who led the construction of the trench during the battle. The third mosque is the Abu Bakr Siddiq Mosque (RA) which is located 15 meters to the southeast of Salman Al Farsi Mosque.

Other famous mosques in the complex include the Umar ibn Khattab Mosque, the Ali bin Abi Talib Mosque, and the Fatima Al Zahra Mosque, named after the Blessed Companions of Prophet (Peace and Blessings Be Upon Him), may God be pleased with them all.  The striking features of these mosques are their small sizes, unique designs, and varying architecture,

This place is belongs very significant event in islamic history. Seven mosque was actually seven watchpost bunker for the war of Khandak. Those watch post were guarding by seven commander of Prophet Muhammad SA. All checkpost were surrounding by a canal to protect the city Madina and it’s people from the enemy. Madina was win the war just because of this canal plan without anu fight. Later people comes and visit this place and start calling them Seven mosque. Five out of Seven are still there as a witness of the great war. Weekday there is no traffic or rush, but weekend is very busy with the visitor. This place is nearby from other historical place in Madina.

Seven mosques, including Masjid Al Qiblatayn, are steeped in the history of one of Islam's prominent battles, the Battle of Khandaq. The main mosque now stands where the camp of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions was stationed.

The Seven Mosques (المساجد السبعة) is a group of small mosques constructed close to each other on the site where the Battle of Trench is believed to have been fought. Originally there were seven mosques marking the locations where the command posts are said to have deployed.
