Al-Ijabah Mosque (Arabic: مسجد الإجابة‎), also known as Bani Muawiyah Mosque or Al-Mubahalah Mosque is a mosque in Medina, Saudi Arabia, which was built during the time of the Islamic prophet Muhammad on a land owned by Muawiyah bin Malik bin 'Auf of Al-Aus tribe.

Location[edit]

The mosque is located 385 meters south of Baqi and it is on As-Sittin street. Distance to Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (after expansion) is only 580 meters.[1] Today, this region is a part of Bani Muawiyah district.

Reference in Hadith[edit]

There is an account of the mosque in Hadith Sahih Muslim. It is noted that Amir bin Sa'dari said that when Prophet Muhammad returned from Al-Aliyah, he passed the Bani Muawiyah Mosque, entered there and prayed for two rakats, and his companions also followed him. He prayed for a long time, then turned toward the companions and spoke about three wishes he requested to God, in which two of them, saving people from famine and flooding were fulfilled, but the last wish regarding the ending of strife among the people was not.

According to the Isnad (chain of narration) from Malik and Abdullah bin Jabir bin Atik, Ibnu Umar said indeed the war, slander and strife would continue until the Day of Judgement.[2]
