Located on the Aqaba hills, Al-Baiah Mosque marks the spot where Ansar of Madinah pledged their allegiance to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) after hearing the recitations from Quran. The group included twelve leaders from Aws and Khazraj tribes of Madinah. The second such Aqaba Pledge took place thirteen year after the proclamation of Prophethood.
In the light of Hadith, it has been narrated that The Prophet (peace be on him) met the group of Ansar leaders accompanied by his uncle Abbas who at that point was not a Muslim. He recited the Quran, prayed to Allah and encouraged people to embrace Islam. Prophet (pbuh) said,
“I ask for your allegiance on the basis that you protect me as you would protect your wives and children.”
They pledged their allegiance to him which was later known as the ‘Second pledge of Aqabah’. They asked him not to return to Makkah and stay with them. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) gave his promise, “I am from you and you are from me. I will fight those you fight and will be at peace with those with whom you are at peace.”
The mosque was built by Caliph Abu Jafar al-Mansour in the year 144H who named it Al- Baiah which means “pledge”. Simple in design, the mosque has been renovated several times in the past and features arched entry ways with Hejazi architectural style. The entry way leads to the open courtyard and is easily accessible from the street.
