We paid visit today to two of the most important mosques in the blessed city of Medina (the city of the Prophet ; sallalllahu alayhi wa sallam) after Al Masjid An- Nabawiyy (the Prophet 's Mosque. These two mosques are :
1- Masjid Qubaa': is the first mosque built after the Prophet sallallahu alsyhi wa sallam imigrated to Madina.
The virtue of masjid Qubaa' is mentioned in the Qur'an and also in the following Hadith of the Prophet which means : “He who purifies himself at his home and comes to Masjid Qubaa' and performs two rak^aat therein, will be rewarded the reward of an ^Umrah .
2-Masjid of Al Qiblatayn :
When the prophet migrated to Madinah, he prayed towards Jerusalem for 17 months, but he hoped it would be changed to the Ka’bah. During Dhuhr prayer, the Prophet, had led his Companions when he was commanded to face towards the Ka’bah by a revelation in the Qu'ran in Surah al-Baqarah. The Prophet turned around towards the Ka’bah and the Sahabah copied out of obedience. Thus the Ka^bah became the new Qibla of the Muslims for all time to come. Masjid Al Qiblatain used to uniquely contain two mehrabs, one in the direction of Bait-al-Maqdis and the other towards Makkah. However, the old mehrab has now been covered.
May Allah grant us to return to these blessed places, aameen.
