The importance of the mosque is in its design because it represents the continuity of the pattern of the design of the first mosques. It reminds of the design of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madina in its early stages. In addition, the importance of this mosque is in its being one of the oldest ancient mosques that its design has not changed.
