Masjid Abuzar Ghifari

Masjid Abuzar Ghifari is situated 900m north of Masjid-e-Nabwi and is also known as Masjid Sajdah after a hugely auspicious incident that occurred here with the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) .



    It has been reported by Abdur Rahman bin Auf (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) came to a garden of the Baitul-Maal (treasury) and offered salah, then went in to a (lengthy) prostration. I said to the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) : “Oh Prophet of Allah, you prostrated (for so long) that I feared that Allah may have taken your soul”.The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) said:

    “Jibraeel came with a message from Allah; ‘He who sends salutations and peace upon you, I shall send mercy and blessings upon him.’ I prostrated in gratitude of this bounty of Allah.”
