3. Imam Ali ('a)'s house - Behind Masjid Quba is Imam Ali ('a)'s house
4. Well of the Prophet ('s) - In front of Masjid Quba, is a sweet-water well that is now closed. The Prophet ('s)'s ring fell into this well hence the name Bi'ru al-Khatam (khatam = ring). It is also called Bi'ru Tufla
5. Mashrabat Umm Ibrahim - Joined to Masjid Quba is "Mashrabat Ummu Ibrahim". This is the room of the Prophet ('s)'s wife Mariah Qibtwiyya (Umm Ibrahim). The Prophet ('s) used to live and pray here.
6. Masjid Fadhikh - It is situated in the eastern part of Masjid Quba. It is named after a palm tree that used to be at the place. It is also called Masjid Nakhl.
7. Masjid Qiblatayn (i.e. the mosque of two qiblas) - The mosque where the Holy Prophet ('s) was commanded to change his qibla from Masjid al-Aqsa (Jerusalem) to the Holy Ka'aba (Makkah).

9. Masjid Fath (lit. "mosque of victory") is at the top of a mountain. This is named after the Muslims victory in the Battle of Khandaq when Imam Ali ('a) killed Amr b. Abd Wudd and the Prophet ('s) prayed here for the Muslims victory. Editors Note: This mosque has been falsely identified at a recent Hajj by another Australian Hajj group as being the Mosque of Salman al-Fasi. That mosque is at ground level and not at the top of the stairs.
