Bani Zuraiq Mosque

Umar bin Handhala was quoted as saying that Bani Zuraiq Mosque was the first mosque where the Quran was recited, and that when Rafi’e bin Malek Al-Zarqi met the Prophet (PBUH) at Al-Aqaba, the Prophet (PBUH) recited to him the revelations over the past ten years.

He said: “Rafié came with the revelation to Medina, and gathered his people to recite to them at his spot. He said: “The Prophet (PBUH) admired the straightness of its Qibla.” Marwan bin Uthman bin Al-Mu’alla was quoted as saying: “The first mosque where the Quran was recited was Bani Zuraiq Mosque.” Yahya bin Abdulla bin Rifa’a was quoted as saying: “The Prophet (PBUH) took ablution therein, and admired the straightness of its Qibla, but did not pray therein.” Currently there are no traces of this mosque.
