Also known as Bani Salim Mosque, Al-Wadi Mosque, Al-Ghubaib Mosque, or Atikah Mosque, is a mosque in Medinah sharif, Saudi Arabia.

It is said to be where Hz. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his companions performed a Jumu’ah prayer for the first time during their route of hijrah (migration) from Mecca sharif to Medinah sharif.

It is located southwest of Medina, near Wadi Ranuna’, 900 meters north of Quba Mosque and 6 km from Al-Masjid an-Nabawi.


The Prophet ﷺ left Quba on a Friday to head into Medinah sharif. About a kilometer from Quba he passed the village of Banu Salim bin Auf.

The people of Banu Salim implored: “O Prophet of Allah, you stayed at the homes of our cousins for a number of days, reward us too with something, for they will pride themselves over us till the Day of Judgement that you stayed with them”.

The Prophet ﷺ dismounted and offered his first Jummah in their locality.

Approximately one hundred Muslims participated in this first Jummah salah. Amongst them were the Prophet’s ﷺ relatives from Bani an-Najjar who had come to meet him and some from Bani Amr who had escorted him from Quba.

After performing the Friday prayer, the Prophet ﷺ mounted Qaswa (his camel) and set off for the city of Medinah Sharif.
