Al-Masjid al-Nabawi (Arabic: المسجد النبوي‎ [mæsdʒɪd ænnæbæwiː] "Mosque of the Prophet"), often called the Prophet's Mosque, is a mosque situated in the city of Medina. As the final resting place of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
The site was originally Muhammad's house; he settled there after his Hijra (emigration) to Medina, later building a mosque on the grounds. He himself shared in the heavy work of construction. The original mosque was an open-air building. The basic plan of the building has been adopted in the building of other mosques throughout the world.
One of the most notable features of the site is the Green Dome over the center of the mosque, where the tomb of Muhammad is located.
