Bayah Mosque (Bayat-i Uqaba Mosque)

This Masjid, close to Mina, commemorates the spot where the Ansar of Madinah pledged their allegiance to the Prophet in the year 621 CE. The group included leaders of the Aws and Khazraj tribes of Madinah and were twelve in number. The second such pledge called the second Aqabah pledge (Bay’ah Aqaba Thaaniya) took place the following year, the thirteenth year after the Prophet Muhammad proclaimed his Prophethood.
