Madina 2019: Masjid Nur

Adjacent to the well of Hujain is the remains of the Mosque of Light (Masjid al-Nur) in which the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ prayed. It was the spirit of freedom and justice that placed Sālim, the freed slave of Abū Hudhayfah as the leader and Imam of this mosque, due to his mastery of the Quran. In addition to it being a beacon of these lofty traits, the mosque was named “Light” because of the miracle the Prophet ﷺ performed where sticks from the garden became illuminated so that his companions could travel through the thick palm valley during the dark of night. Praise be to Allah for permitting us to pray where the mercy to all creation ﷺ prayed.
