Description: The Suq al-Khamis, or Thursday market Mosque, is situated in the southern suburb of Manama, four kilometers away from Al Khamis town. Its construction date is highly debated. Some archaeologists suggest that it was built in 717, during the reign of the Umayyad Caliph Omar bin Abdul-Aziz. However, an inscription on the qibla wall attest that the current building was built in 1058 (near the end of Caramathian rule) upon the request of two dignitaries from Bahrain, Abdulla Bin Bahlool and Abu Al Waleed Musallam.
