Narrated/Authority of Anas bin Malik
"The location where the Prophet's Masjid (Mosque) was built belonged to Banu Najjar. In it there were date-palm trees and graves of the idolaters. The Prophet (saw) said to them: 'Name its price.' They said: 'We will never take any money for it.' The Prophet (saw) built it and they were assisting him, and the Prophet (saw) was saying: 'The real life is the life of the Hereafter so forgive the Ansar and the Muhajirah.'Before the masjid (mosque) was built, the Prophet (saw) would perform prayer wherever he was when the time for prayer came." (Sahih)
