Amr Ibn Al Aas Mosque

Amr Ibn Al Aas Mosque

Amr Ibn Al Aas Mosque , When Amir al-Mu'mininin 'Umar ibn al-Khattab conquered the countries, he wrote to his agents in Basra, Kufa, Levant and Egypt that each of them should take a mosque for the congregation and that they should not build two mosques in one place in order not to harm the other, and that they should make mosques for the tribes, and if it was Friday, they joined to one mosque, the Great Mosque, and after consulting with the group that came to Egypt with Amr ibn al-Aas in building the mosque and agreed that Dar Qaisaba where he donated it to build the mosque should be a place of Dar al-Qaisaba, where he donated it to build the mosque.

The foundation of the mosque:

The foundation of the mosque was laid by four of the companions, Abu Dharr al-Ghaffari, Abu Sabra, Muhammad ibn Jazir al-Dhubaidi, and Nabih ibn Sawab, who used to lay the adobe bricks with his own hand, and Ibn Maysir said in his history that he was the one who was engineering with them (and he is the nephew of Al-Maqoukas) when he asked them to take the great church to replace it with the mosque, because he embraced the true Islamic religion, and the one who built the mihrab for this mosque is Obada ibn al-Samat and Rafi ibn Malik, then he ordered Amr ibn al-As to erect the qibla, and he was the governor of Egypt at that time, so he built this mosque in 21 years of the Hijrah.
