Al Taneem Mosque

Masjid al Taneem is a masjid in the Al-Hil area about 5 miles away from the Holy Kaaba, in Taneem, which is near Mecca and acts as Miqat (a station for entering into a state of ihram i.e state of purification and coming out of all of the worldly ties). This masjid is also known as Masjid Ayesha since Prophet Mohammed peace be upon him's wife Ayesha had put her Ihram (restriction on Pilgrimage) from this place once. The prophet peace be upon him and upon all messengers advised Ayesha may Allah be pleased with her to go to this area with her brother Abdul Rahman as a companion to her to re enter to the Ihram. This is quite a big masjid with superb facilities for baths, ablution and changing, available for pilgrims and those who come to offer regular prayers.
