Ghamamah Mosque is opened only at prayers time i guess. When I visited with my family, it was closed but we offered 2 rakat just outside the mosque area, bring your prayer mat with you always.
Use Gate No 6 of Masjid-e-Nabwi to visit Madjid Gamamah. It is mostly made with big old stones and there are a lot of pigeons there, kids will enjoy this a lot

Mosque of Al Ghamamah (means cloud, and it is named as such as it is narrated that a cloud covered the sunlight when the Islamic Prophet Muhammad prayed here) is one of the oldest mosques in Medina, located in the place believed to be where the Islamic prophet Muhammad performed an Eid prayer in the year 631.

It is located at 500 meters west of As-Salam door of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi.

Nowadays, it is no longer being used due to its proximity to the Al-Masjid an-Nabawi. The mosque is one of the historical relics of Medina.

Located hardly in the vicinity of around 100-200 metres, Masjid Al Ghamah is a small mosque. It is believed that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) offered salat here to pray for rainfall. The mosque is all engrossed with sparrows. It gives great relied to feed these birds. You too should try it.

Masjid Al Ghamamah is located a few meters outside Masjid Nabawi (S.A.W) (Near to Gate No. 6 & 7) I also found it closed. There is very nice sitting place outside the masjid. You can also feed Pigeons. There are also two Masjids near Masjid Al Ghamamah.

Historical sites in Medina, Masjid Al Ghamamah and Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar are located near to each other. Sometimes people confuse the two. To differentiate them, Masjid Al Ghamamah has many domes while Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar is much smaller and has only one dome.

The area is located southwest of the Prophet's Mosque and a short walk away from the Holy Quran exhibition.

The area surrounding the two masjids has been into a park with benches. Good for picnicking with family.

One of the oldest mosque in Medina, this is a short walk from Masjid E Nabawi. The mosque is surrounded by a nice park and very to near to Abu Bakar Masjid. It has several domes and a very nice structure though the mosque is small.

Ghamamah means 'cloud'. Whenever the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SW) started offer his prayer here the cloud used to give him shade. That's why the mosque was named so. The well maintained, beautiful, small, historical mosque is located adjacent to the Holy Masjid e Nawabi.

When I visited this mosque, it was locked, so I couldn’t see the inside. However, the outside was lovely. The stone building and domes are amazing.

As the name suggest , it means Clouds, as it says when it was not raining in madina then prophet Mohammed PBUH have prayed to allah to provide rain, and it short span of time it started raining.

This mosque is right outside of GATE NO. 6 of masjid al-nabavi and every individual should perform 2 rakat salam at this mosque.

Make sure to visit everytime when it opens during prayer time.

This masjid is found near gate 6 &7. Actually is used to be our point of reference when we were there in madina. Most of the time it was closed when i was there. However, in the morning at about 1000hrs they open the doors. i had the opportunity to pray two rakaat nafil in there. A beautiful narration is based on this majid.
