Previously known as Masjid Musalla is located on the southwest side of Masjid an-Nabawi. This place, which is 500 meters away from Babu’s-Salam and is the last place where our Prophet (pbuh) prayed during Eid Al Fitr and Eid al Adha. The name of this place as El-Gamama is based on the narration of our Nabi (alayhis salam) that Gamama, which means cloud in Arabic, came in front of the sun while our Prophet (alayhis salam) was praying and protected him from the sun.
The Masjid was built during the rule of Omar Bin Abdulaziz in Madinah Munawwarah and was renovated by Sultan Hasan Bin Muhammed Bin Kalavun El-Salihi in 761 Hijri. The Masjid , which was repaired during the reign of Sultan İnal in 861 Hijri, was completely renovated by Sultan Abdulmecit I. Except for some repairs made during the Ottoman Sultan Abdulhamid Al Sani and Saudi periods, its last renovation continues until today.
