History

It is not sure when the mosque was constructed[3] and because the mud and stone built structure uses no wood, its exact date of construction is unknown as radiocarbon dating is not possible. It is estimated to date to the 15th century,[5] however some much earlier estimates have been proposed.[2] The site was investigated by the archaeological center of Fujairah in co-operation with the Australian, University of Sydney from 1997-98.[2] and Fujairah Archaeology and Heritage Department came up with the conclusion that the mosque was believed to be built in 1446 AD, along with the two watch towers overlooking the mosque and the village.[3] Structure

The small, square structure has an area of 53 square metres (570 sq ft) and was built from materials available in the area, primarily stones of various sizes and mud bricks coated in many layers of whitewashed plaster. The roof has four squat, helical domes that are supported by only one centrally placed pillar that also forms the ceiling. Entrance to the mosque is through double-winged wooden doors.[2]

The prayer hall has a small mihrab (the niche in the wall that indicates the direction of Mecca), a simple pulpit, arches and openings. A central pillar divides the internal space into four squares of similar dimensions. The pillar supports all four domes that can be seen from the exterior.[4]

Inside the prayer hall, a number of small decorative windows allow light and air to stream into the mosque. There are also cube-shaped spaces carved into the thick walls where copies of the Quran and other books are to be stored.[6]

The mosque is still in operation, and continues to host daily prayers. In addition, it is a tourist attraction in Fujairah.[2]

hello, sorry to point out that Masjid(Mosque)-Fatah(Victory) and Masjid(Mosque)-Khandaq(Trench) are not the same. The picture above is that of Masjid Khandaq, which has been newly built at the site of the Battle of the Trench, perhaps after demolishing some out of the group of 6 mosques that were there. These mosques were built at the site of the Battle of the Trench which was a fortnight-long siege of Madina by Arab and Jewish tribes in 627CE. "Its real number is 6, but they are known as the 7 Mosques. They are in a row from north to south:- 1.Al Fateh Mosque, 2.Salman Farsi Mosque, 3.Abu Bakr Mosque, 4.Umar ibn al Khattab Mosque, 5.Ali bin Abi Talib Mosque, 6. Mosque of Fatima. Some include the Qiblatain Mosque." (This is according to a board at the site) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battleofthe_Trench
