Amr Ibn El-As Mosque Amr Ibn El-As Mosque
Photo by Raymon Kondos
© 2009 Your Egypt


The mosque was first built in 642 by Amr Ibn El-As, the Arab general who led the Arab conquest of Egypt. The mosque is absolutely the first built in Egypt.

The current building has nothing to do with Amr Ibn El-As original mosque, because it was rebuilt and expanded several times throughout subsequent Islamic eras.

It played an important religious and social role in the old capital city of Al-Fustat, also built by Ibn El-As.
