MESCİD-İ ÂİŞE

6 km from Harem-i Sharif. It is in Tenim, which is the border of the harem on the side of Medina. Hz. Aisha made a pilgrimage with our Prophet in her farewell pilgrimage. He could not perform Umrah due to his disability. When they returned to Madinah, they said to the Prophet; O Messenger of Allah! “People are returning with Hajj and Umrah, but I am deprived of Umrah,” he said. Our Prophet (saas) sent his brother Abdurrahman (ra) to Tenim to perform Umrah. They were ihram there and performed two rak’ahs of ihram prayer. For this reason, the mosque built there was named Masjid-i Aisha.
