Masjid-e-Nabwi established by the Prophet Muhammad upon his migration (Hijrat) to Madinah. It is the second most revered masjid in Islam after Masjid al-Haram in Makkah. The Prophet’s Mosque is a place Muslims from around the world visit while performing Hajj and Umrah, or simply to pray (performing the salat) and visit Prophet Muhammad’s tomb.

This Mosque underwent several expansions throughout its history, starting with the days of the Caliphs, followed by the Umayyads, the Abbasids, the Ottomans, and finally, the Saudi era. It is the resting place of the Prophet Muhammad. It was built by the Prophet himself, next to the house where he settled after his migration to Medina in 622 AD. It was an open-air building with a raised platform for the reading of the Quran.

One of the most notable features of the site is the Green Dome in the south-east corner of the mosque, originally Aisha's house, where the tomb of Muhammad is located. The beautiful green dome and minaret of Al-Masjid al-Nabawi printed on a 100 Riyal banknote.
