abu Bakr al-Siddique Mosque (Medina)

It is located at the south-western flank of the Prophet’s Mosque, near Masjid al-Ghamama. According to a tradition Muhammad prayed Al Eid prayer at this site, and abu Bakr after Him during His Caliphate, so it was attributed to Him. It was built-up for the first time in the Princedom of Omar Bin Abdul Aziz in Medinah (86-91 AH/705-709 CE), and it was renovated by the Ottoman Sultan Mahmoud II in 1254 AH/1838 CE
