MASJID AL-EJABAH

This is situated near Ansar Hospital. As mentioned in Muslim, the Prophet (SAS) and his Companions offered two rakat salat in this Masjid.The Prophet (SAS) made a very long supplication or dua after salat. The Prophet (SAS) said to his Companions,

“I requested three things from Allah (SWT) during this dua. First two are granted and the third one is rejected.

First of all, I requested Allah (SWT) not to destroy my Ummah with famine or draught. Secondly, please do not destroy my Ummah by drowning.

Thirdly, my Ummah be saved from fighting among themselves.”

 

MASJID ABI ZAR 

Imam Bahiqi mentioned in Shaab-ul-Iman narrated by Abdur Rahman bin Auf (RU) as follows:

Abdur Rahman (RU) said,

“I and Prophet Mohammed (SAS) offered two-rakat salat in this masjid. The Prophet made an additional sajda after the salat. The Prophet (SAS) stayed in sajda for extremely long time. I got worried and wondered if he had passed away. With this feeling I started crying quietly. When the Prophet (SAS) raised his head from the long sajda he found me crying. He said, “What is wrong with you?” I expressed my concern. The Prophet (SAS) said to me, “Jibreel (AS) informed me that whoever sends salat and salam (peace and blessings) upon me, Allah (SWT) will send salam and salat upon that person. I made this long sajda to thank Allah (SWT).”

MASJID AL-GHAMAMA 

It is just west of Prophet’s Mosque and the Prophet (SAS) used to lead Salat-ul Eid at this place.
