Abstract

Hadtih is known as second primary source of Islamic sharia and jurisprudence. Therefore, the companions of Prophet (SW) left no stone unturned in its preservation and propagation wherever they were in different parts of world like Iraq , Syria , Turkey , Yemen , Egypt, etc. They started spreading Hadiths by narrating it and later on specific schools were established for this revered task. Egypt was not less than the other parts in propagation of Hadiths. Here the companions of Prophet (SW) founded a Mosque called Mosque of Amr Ibn al-As in 641-642 AD ; the first Mosque ever built in Egypt and whole Africa. As a center and school of Hadith it has been playing a dynamic role in services of Hadith. Beside this Mosque there were some other Mosques where Hadith was being thought like Masjed Imam Shafi, Masjed Ahmad bin Tolon, Masjed Refai etc. But in this era unfortunately these Mosques are visited by Muslims and foreign tourists as historical sites.

This article will focus on present scenario of some ancient Mosques like Mosque of Amr Ibn al-As , Jami Al-Azhar and other schools of Hadiths to highlight their contribution in services of hadith and its sciences.
