World News Al-Ghamamah Mosque preserves Islamic history in Madinah

RIYADH: Madinah is brimming with historical mosques and landmarks. Among these gems stands Al-Ghamamah Mosque, where it is believed that Prophet Muhammad offered Eid prayers and performed the funeral prayer in absentia for the Negus of Ethiopia upon hearing news of his passing, according to the Saudi Press Agency.

Located roughly 500 meters southwest of the Bab Al-Salam gate of the Prophet’s Mosque, Al-Ghamamah was the first mosque constructed by Caliph Umar bin Abdulaziz during his reign in Madinah.
