Masjid Suqya

Suqya is pronounced Saqyah. Masjid Al Saqya is located inside the Anbariya train station, in Madinah. The masjid named after the well Saqya, which is located Nearby.

It is reported that the Prophet Muhammad PBUH stopped here during the battle of Badr, prayed here and supplicated for the residents of Madinah and then marched to the battle of Badr.

It is considered that, verse number 7 of Surat Al Anfal was descended here.

The Saqya well is located at the south of the masjid Suqya, near the wall of the train station. It is reported that, it was owned by Saad ibn Waqqas raliallahu anhu.

Prophet Muhammad PBUH used to drink the water from this well and do ablution with the water as well.

Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib raliallahu anhu who was the uncle of the Prophet Muhammad offered Salathul Istisqa here in this location during the time of the 2nd caliph Umar bin Khattab raliallahu anhu who lead the prayers. Salathiel Istisqa is a special prayer for rain.

The mosque was initially built by Umar bin Abdul Aziz (Allah show mercy on him) and restored during the recent rule of King Fahd.

The Prophet (ﷺ) also made du’a here for barakah (blessings) for Madinah. There are numerous variations of this du’a,  one that was made at the time could have been the following. Narrated ‘Abdullah bin Zaid: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The Prophet Ebrahim made Makkah a sanctuary, and asked for Allah’s blessing in it. I made Madinah a sanctuary as Ebrahim made Makkah a sanctuary and I asked for Allah’s Blessing in its measures the Mudd’ and the Sa’ (units of measurement) as Ebrahim did for Makkah, O Allah! Bless them in their measure, and bless them in their sa’ and mudd’.” He meant the people of Madinah.
