Did You Know? (Hadith No. 715)
Volume 2, Book 13, Number 715:
Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:
The first Jumua prayer which was offered after a Jumua prayer offered at the mosque of Allah’s Apostle took place in the mosque of the tribe of ‘Abdul Qais at Jawathi in Bahrain.
Took me a while to make sense out of this sentence. :P
But it’s an interesting historical fact about Jumu`ah, no?

It is interesting indeed..Jazakillah khair..
the first Jummah prayer was offered at Masjid-e-Jummah at madina as far as i know, (hence its called Masjid-e-Jumah)
I also think this “fact” might not be true, as there were many mosques around Medina (the Prophet’s mosque, another mosque in Qufa, one in Makkah after 8 AH, and so on) before Bahrain was conquered. Chances are that any of these mosques would have been praying Jummah before the Bahraini mosque.
