The Prophet peace be upon him said ((prayer in my mosque is better than a thousand prayers elsewhere, except  the Sacred Mosque in Mecca)) Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim

  And He said peace be upon him : ((No traveling (for worship) except to three mosques: the Sacred Mosque, this my Mosque and  Al-Aqsa Mosque)) Narrated by Bukhari , Muslim and others.

That the Mosque of the Messenger of God peace be upon him, chose a place by himself and was commissioned and participated in construction, and the blessings of noble Companions and their employees with kindness, a place sacred in origin,

The original Prophet's Mosque was built by the Prophet himself, next to the house where he settled after his Hijrah (emigration) to Medina in 622 AD. It was an open-air building with a raised platform for the reading of the Qur'an.
