Brief Answer

Quba Mosque was built in 622 in Medina, Saudi Arabia by the Prophet Muhammad after his departure from Mecca.

The Quba Mosque is a mosque in the outlying environs of Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is either the first mosque in the history of Islam, or it is not the first, with the Great Mosques of Mecca and Jerusalem being older, due to their association with earlier Prophets in Islam, especially Abraham.

According to legend, its first stones were positioned by Muhammad as soon as he arrived on his emigration from the city of Mecca to Medina.

Quba Mosque to the south of Madinah is the second largest and prestigious mosque in the city after the Prophet’s Mosque, but claims the first place owing to its importance in Islamic history having been built in the first year of the Islamic calendar.

Quba Mosque witnesses an influx of worshippers and visitors throughout the year, but the numbers have increased these days owing to the holy month of Ramadan. Large gatherings can be observed in the mosque’s precincts especially in the early hours of the morning.
