The lineage of the Abu Nakhla Mosque goes back to Imam Muhammad bin Hanifa, the son of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib, may God be pleased with him, and it is said that he is buried in the eastern room of the mosque. The five daily prayers were performed inside this mosque, which is small in size and does not contain a minbar. At the top of the mosque there is a minaret of low height and beautiful shape, and in its architecture is very similar to Moroccan minarets. This mosque consists of a campus whose area does not exceed forty square meters. There are two entrances to the mosque, a western entrance from the main street in the Al-Sabil neighborhood and a small northern entrance, from Zaroub Abi Nakhla. The mosque was restored three times in 1199 AD, as appears from the plaque engraved above the entrance, in 1960 AD when the Islamic Endowments Department in Sidon made the necessary repairs due to the crack that occurred in the building due to the earthquake, and finally in 1982 AD, when a group of Sidon youth renovated the building and opened it for prayer after If it has been closed for a long time, and every Friday this mosque dedicates a lesson to women.
