Jawatha Mosque

It is believed that the second Friday congregation prayer (salah-t Juma) was offered here, after Masjid-i Nabavi. Originally built in c. 629 CE, seventh year of Hijra, it is considered to be the second mosque of Islam. According to a tradition, the Hajr-i al-Aswad was kept here for nearly 22 year when it was stolen by Qarmatians in 930 after they sacked Mecca and Medina.
