Here Prophet Muhammad ﷺ delivered the last historic sermon (Khutba) of Hajj.
Every year on 9th Zihija, Hajj Khutba is delivered from this mosque. Only two salat (Prayers) are offered in this mosque during a year. On Hajj day (the 9th Zilhija) Zuhar and Asar prayers are offered jointly by pilgrims.
During Hajj it is very difficult for every pilgrim to reach here but in other days, the mosque remains empty and might be seen easily.
It’s courtyard area remains open for nawafil prayers but inner hall remains closed.
It is usually remains closed the entire year they only open it during Hajj time. Mosque infrastructure is heart touching very beautiful.
Part of the mosque is actually within the borders of Mount Arafat. The distance from Nimra Mosque to Mina is 10kms.
The Ministry of Hajj has implemented an expansion project for this Mosque, increasing its area to 124,000 square meters and making part of it into two-stories. The Mosque’s capacity has increased to 300,000 pilgrims. After expansion, part of the Mosque exceeded beyond the boundary of Arafat.
