Jakarta (Indonesia Window) – Quba Mosque, the first mosque built by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, will increase in size tenfold, Saudi Arabia’s crown prince has announced.

Quba Mosque which is located 5 kilometers south of the Prophet’s Mosque, was the first mosque in the history of Islam, and the first mosque built in Madinah in the year 1 A.H (622 A.D).

The new project will mean the mosque in Madinah will see the largest development in its history, expanding to 50,000 square meters to accommodate 66,000 worshipers.

Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman said the project seeks to accommodate the largest number of worshipers during peak seasons.

It also aims to highlight the mosque’s religious importance while preserving its architectural style, as well as monuments located near the mosque.

There will be shaded courtyards on four sides, which will connect to prayer spaces that are not structurally attached to the current mosque building.

The project will aim to solve overcrowding and enhance the safety of worshipers, and the road system nearby will see a revamp to ease access to the mosque.

Rehabilitation work will mean a number of sites and prophetic monuments within the mosque and its courtyards are preserved.
