Al-Fateh Mosque “Conquest Mosque”(Al-Khandaq Mosque, Al-Ahzab “Parties” Mosque)

Al-Fateh Mosque “Conquest Mosque”(Al-Khandaq Mosque, Al-Ahzab “Parties” Mosque)”

Also named Al-Ahzab (The Parties) Mosque and Al-A’la (The Higher) Mosque. Jaber bin Abdulla was quoted as saying that the Prophet (PBUH) prayed to God in Al-Fateh Mosque three days; Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. On Wednesday, between the two prayers, his prayers were answered, and cheer was apparent in his face. Ibn Zabala quoted Al-Muttaleb, as saying that the Prophet (PBUH) prostrated in Al-Fateh Mosque on the Day of Al-Ahzab (The Parties), until the noon, afternoon and sunset, but nothing was answered. Then, he prayed them all after Maghreb (sunset) prayer. Abu Uthman said: “One night the Prophet (PBUH) got up to pray on the hill were Al-Fateh Mosque was built. Then he turned and said: Anyone to get up and watch what the people are doing? He did that three times, but no man got up, as they were so scared, hungry, and cold. So, he called Huthaifa bin Al-Yaman and said: Didn’t you hear what I said this night?: Huthaifa said: I said, O Messenger of Allah, I couldn’t respond due to fatigue and cold. He said: Go ahead and get among the people, listen to what they say and let me know. O God safeguard him, between his hands, from his back, from his right and left, until you bring him back to me. Go ahead and don’t do or say anything until you come back to me. Huthaifa moved with his weapons, and the Prophet (PBUH) rose his hands and said: O saviour of the people in plight, O respondent to those who are in bad need, eliminate my worries and grief, you see my state and the state of my companions. Gabriel was revealed to him and said: God has heard your prayer, and protected you from your enemy. The Prophet (PBUH) kneeled down, stretched his hands, and closed his eyes, while saying: Thank Go, Thank God, as you had mercy on me, and on my companions. Huthaifa moved to the people, and heard Abu Sufian as saying: O people of Quraish, by God you are facing death, the horses and sheep died, and Bani Quraidha broke their promise to us, we received bad news from them, we had enough of this wind as you can see, so go away, as I am going. When he returned, he told the Prophet (PBUH), who laughed until his molar teeth were apparent in the night darkness. Haroun bin Katheer quoted his father, quoting his grandfather, as saying that the Prophet (PBUH), on the Day of the Trench, prayed against Al-Ahzab (The Parties) at the site of the middle column of Al-Fateh Mosque in the mountain (this mosque is located on top of the mountain, and attainable by climbing stairs). Sa’eed, the servant of Al-Mahdeyin was quoted as saying: The Prophet (PBUH) came from the Al-Jurf, and it was time for Al-Aser (afternoon) prayer. He prayed it at the Al-A’la (The Higher) Mosque. Ibn Zabala, Yahya and Ibn Al-Najjar, through others, quoted Jaber bin Abdulla as saying that the Prophet (PBUH) passed by Al-Fateh (Conquest) Mosque in the mountain, and it was time for Al-Aser prayer. He stopped and prayed Al-Aser there. Al-Majd said: The Higher Mosque was called Al-Fateh (the Conquest) Mosque probably because the prayer of the Prophet (PBUH) against the Parties was answered, so it was a conquest for Islam, and God revealed the Al-Fateh (Conquest) Surah (Chapter) there.
