Mosque in Taif





Two years back during our Umrah journey to Mecca, we went on a day trip to Taif, a hill station in Saudi Arabia. This historical mosque in Taif  - Masjid Abdullah Ibn Abbas(ral) have a library inside. Our time well spent looking at the display of ancient inscriptions, scriptures and one of the first few handwritten Holy Quran.
