Dirar Mosque, Which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Ordered To Burn

Dirar mosque is the mosque which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ordered to burn and has been a focus of argument between Muslims.

Some Muslim scholars believed that the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ordered the mosque be demolished but not burnt.

The researchers have found out that Dirar Mosque was located near Quba mosque. And it was built by Abu Amir, who was a monk and Hypocrite.

Abu Amir and his men were not loyal or respectful towards Islam and their intention was not to build a mosque to worship but to use it against the Muslims. They built this mosque to gather the sympathies of Muslims so they can freely plan new traps for Muslims at that time.

It was Holy Quran’s verse 9:107, which stated that this mosque was built by the hypocrites so they can trap the Muslims. They can use this mosque to start fitnah between the Muslims and a safe house for the people who were in the war against Allah and his last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

When this mosque was built, Abu Amir invited Prophet Muhammad PBUH to pray in that mosque, which he accepted as the Quranic verse was not revealed onto him at that point. Since Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had to leave for the Battle of Tabuk, so he decided to offer the prayer when he returns from battle.
At Tabari narrates this incident, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was on his way towards the Battle of Tabuk, when he read Dhu Awan, a group of men came to him and asked him to pray in the mosque (Dirar Mosque), they claimed that they build this mosque to help the sick and needy in the cold and rainy nights. Prophet (PBUH) accepted their invitation and told them that he will pray once he returns from Battle of Tabuk.

When Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) returned from the Battle of Tabuk it was when Holy Quran’s verse 9:107 was revealed onto him which unveiled the truth of this mosque.

Allah clearly forbade Prophet PBUH from praying in that mosque as per Quran 9:108. After these ayahs were revealed to him, he ordered his men to Demolish the mosque and burn it to the ground.

Then his men went and burned down the mosque, so it was the mosque Dirar a mosque which Prophet Muhammad PBUH ordered to burn.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so


It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy


Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
