Mosul , Iraq

During the reign of the Ottoman Empire, the mosque became far from urbanism. After the Ottomans took over Mosul, people started to visit the area and reopen its shops, including the land near it, which was rebuilt by Kuazons (people involved in the mud-stone ovens industry), and built their homes on it. One of the philanthropists, Alyas Bek, sought to build a small Musalla in the mosque and surrounded it with a courtyard from the mosque’s land and became known as the Kuazons mosque, due to the lane built around it.
