Suffah (Bench of Ashab Suffah)

Suffah is a rectangular raised platform near Riyad ul-Jannah. This is not the actual location of the original Suffah, the suffah was moved westwards during several expansions of the mosque. This particular location marks the spot where Turk soldiers used to sit under shade while guarding the mosque.
