Masjid Abuzar Ghifari is situated 900m north of Masjid-e-Nabwi and is also known as Masjid Sajdah after a hugely auspicious incident that occurred here with the Prophet (ﷺ).

  • It has been reported by Abdur Rahman bin Auf (رضي الله عنه) that the Prophet (ﷺ) came to a garden of the Baitul-Maal (treasury) and offered salah, then went in to a (lengthy) prostration. I said to the Prophet (ﷺ): “Oh Prophet of Allah, you prostrated (for so long) that I feared that Allah may have taken your soul”. The Prophet (ﷺ) said:“Jibraeel came with a message from Allah; ‘He who sends salutations and peace upon you, I shall send mercy and blessings upon him.’ I prostrated in gratitude of this bounty of Allah.”
