- On the west side of Mount Salah, six small mosques were built at different times, all of which are almost equal in area.
- They are mentioned in ancient books on the history of Medina as “Masjid-e-Fatah”, now known as the “Seven Mosques”.
- The most famous of these is the Fatah Mosque, which was built on the spot where the tent of the Prophet (PBUH) was pitched on the occasion of the Battle of the Trench. He prayed for the Prophet (PBUH) and his prayer was accepted
- This mosque was built during the reign of Hazrat Umar bin Abdul Aziz, and it was renovated several times.
- Only a few yards away, the rest of the mosques are located at a short distance, the names of which are as follows:
” Masjid Salman Farsi(RA), it is related to Hazrat Salman Farsi Sahabi, , he suggested digging a trench, this mosque of the mountain. In the first part, adjacent to it is the mosque of Abu Bakr Siddiq, then the mosque of Umar bin Al-Khattab, a short distance away, the mosque of Ali(RA), and the mosque of Fatima or the mosque of Saad bin Mu’adh”.
- All these mosques are small with neither minarets nor domes, the mosque of Abu Bakr (RA) has been demolished in them, now a bigmosque has been built near these mosques which is named Masjid Khandaq.
