The Quba Mosque (Quba' Masjid or Masjid al-Quba) just outside Medina, Saudi Arabia, is the first Islamic mosque that was ever built. Its first stones were positioned by the prophet Muhammad on hijrah (journey) from the city of Mecca ('Makkah') to Medina and the masjid was completed by his companions. The Prophet spent more than 20 nights in this mosque (after migrating) praying qasr (short prayer) while waiting for Imam Ali whose house was behind this mosque.

It is mentioned in the Qur'an as the mosque founded on piety and devoutness (Masjid al-Taqwa):

'Never stand in it; certainly a masjid founded on piety from the very first day is more deserving that you should stand in it; in it are men who love that they should be purified; and Allah loves those who purify themselves.' (At-Tawbah Sura 9:108).
