  • On my trip to Medina, I passed the Quba mosque rak'ahs.. I have chosen Saturday to visit and pray in following years our Prophet Muhammad (saws). The mosque is about 16 minute drive from Hotel Mercure Grand Council "which is located on the north side of the mosque, and dealt with" cream "to reach the mosque cost 16 riyals. The moment I arrived at the Quba mosque found mini market or Bazaar entrance to city products like roses, mint, nuts wallozih, you can buy whatever you want as gifts for family. So I better visit this mosque before direct you to the airport or before returning to your country. For the mosque is composed of two floors where hygiene and liked having workers distributes the bags to save the visitors ' shoes.
