Masjid Othban Ibn Malik (Masjid Bani Annajjar)

This mosque is located north of Masjid al Jumma and close to it. This is one of the famous because the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) prayed in its site. The site of the mosque was a house owned by Othban Ibn Malik who once asked the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) to come to his house and pray in a spot that he will later consider as his mosque because the flood prevented him from going to Masjid al Jumma. The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) answered his request and prayed in his house.

 

This mosque was also called Banat Annajjar mosque because Bani Annajjar has houses in this area.
