Bab Jibreel (right) with maqam ul-Janyez (left). It is located closest to the Bab e Fatimah (the sole entrance to the Maqsoorah; left). It is a single arched gate, dating back to the first Saudi expansion, and the facade of the gate is flanked with two pillars. The door panels are also originals from first Saudi expansion by Saud bin Abdulaziz.

The facade bears two inscriptions one is linear (top) and one is circular (lintel). The top inscription reads; Surah at-Tehrim verse 5; ...indeed Allah is his protector, and Gabriel and the righteous of the believers and the angels, moreover, are [his] assistants. The second inscription (circular) is first verse of Surah Fatiha; [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds.
