I frequented this site numerous times during my tenure in Saudi Arabia and beyond. Pilgrims are drawn to this place for various reasons: its historical significance, spiritual aura, cultural heritage, landmark status, religious importance, association with Islam, and connection to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This complex comprises seven mosques intricately linked to the Prophet's life and the Battle of Khandaq (the Trench), which was a defensive trench dug by Muslims to protect Medina from the advancing armies of Quraysh and their allies in 5 A.H. The defenders of Medina were stationed in these mosques, each named after the individual stationed there, except for Al-Fath Mosque. Proceeding from north to south, the mosques are Al-Fath Mosque, Salman Al-Farsi Mosque, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq Mosque, Umar bin Khattab Mosque, Ali bin Abi Talib Mosque, Fatimah Az-Zahra Mosque, Saad ibn Mo’az Mosque, and Qiblatain Mosque. Although the Qiblatain Mosque is one kilometer away from the others, it is included because pilgrims visiting the first six mosques typically also visit the Qiblatain Mosque. The largest mosque, Al-Fath, derives its name from the revelation of the Quran's Al-Fath Surah at that location, symbolizing the triumph of Muslims in the battle.

My first visit on these seven masjid was on 1979, followed on 1988 and 1992, those were the years that all of the 7 masjid were quite intact.
My other trips on 2010 2015 2017 and 2018 were quite different.
Some of the masjid were not there anymore.
Still must to see and visit.
The parking is wide & good.

Seven mosques including Masjid Al Qiblatayn steeped in history of one of Islams prominent battles The Battle of Khandaq. It is at this location where the main mosque now stands where the camp of Prophet Muhammad (pbut) and there companions was stationed. Salman Al Farsi (ra) suggested the idea of the trench as had been formed during battles in Persia. With Muhammad (pbut’s) dua to Allah swt for their help, Allah swt’s help came and the Muslims were victorious in this battle, managed to defend Medina and Islam prospered. The older smaller mosques of Hazarat Ali ibn Talib (ra) and Fatima Az Zahra (ra), Abu Bakr as Siddiq (ra), Salman Al Farsi (ra), Umar ibn Khattab (ra) and Saad ibn Mo’az which were built where companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbut) passed away whilst digging the trench. These are now maybe two or three in numbers. The area of those mosques does have a barrier but it is not cordoned off. There seems to be some demolition that must have occurred as there are not the numbers that should be there. I hope the existing mosques are preserved because this is a place of great Islamic historical importance and I hope to visit Masjid Saba on my return Insha’Allah✨

The seven mosques includes the old mosque 🕌 of the sahaba and a new mosque. Things have changed somewhat in comparison to 12 years ago. There is something magical as you pray in a small room that takes you back in time 1400 years back.
The only thing to note is the big new mosque only opens during prayer times.

There is a bigger, more modern mosque on site but it is closed outside of prayer times. There are other smaller structures built out of rocks outside of the big mosque. I could only see four but people mentioned there were six or seven.

One of them (the one on a small hill with a steel staircase) is used for prayers. You can't miss it as streams of visitors head there out of curiosity.

Must try and visit. When you take a tour of all the historic relics this is included.
Modern structure built where ghazwa e khandaq took place.
Cab driver should not charge more than 100SR for all the "ziarat"
Around masjid e nawabi you will find many willing to take u.

They call it seven mosques but are actually six. Situated in the valley of Mount Sala'. The history of these masjids are dates back to Hijra 5 when the battle of Trench (Khandaq battle) happened. The six masjids are build in the places where Muslim warriors statoned during the battle. None of these masjids were build as seen today but those were mere "small places" and later on masjids are build and named accordingly like Salman Al-Farsi Mosque, Abu Bakr Siddiq Mosque, Umar bin Khattab Mosque, Ali bin Abi Talib Mosque and Fatimah Az-Zahra Mosque. Also, there is al Fatah mosque which is the largest. Then why it is called seven mosques? There is Masjid Qiblatain about a kilometere away which one is also added to the six and called seven masjids. Some historians are also in an opinion that there was another mosque called Sa'ad bin Ma'az Mosque which is later demolished (To be verified).
Sad part is that, none of these mosques are preserved with it's importance. We see a different approach on tourism and history recently and hoping these monuments will be well protected.
