Dhu l-Hulayfa Mosque (Arabic:مسجد ذي الحليفة) is among historical mosques of Medina located in Dhu l-Hulayfa or Abar 'Ali region, 8 km south west of Masjid al-Nabi on the way to Mecca. Dhu l-Hulayfa is the Miqat [venue] of those who go for 'Umrat al-Tamattu' and al-'Umra al-Mufrada from Medina to Mecca. This place is also known with other names such as al-Shajara Mosque and al-Ihram Mosque.

The noble Prophet (s) wore Ihram for 'Umra and Hajj al-Tamattu' in this Miqat. After making a two-rak'a prayer in al-Shajara Mosque, he (s) wore Ihram and said:

لبیک،اللهم لبیک، لبیک لا شریک لک لبیک، ان الحمد و النعمة لک و الملک، لاشریک لک لبیک

["Here I am (at Your service) O my Lord, here I am; here I am, no partner is for You, here I am; surly, the praise and the blessing is Yours and the kingdom, no partner is for You, here I am"] It is reported that the first time, the Prophet (s) stopped in this place under a tree where in later years a mosque was built.
