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 whole place is a supreme example of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for his bravery and his fighting technique and it is a practical example of all the Muslims who were with him.
