It is one of the biggest mosques in Egypt. The mosque together with the ziyada occupies an area of 6.5 acres.

The Minaret:It stands on the North side of the Ziyada, where a door leads to it is an unusual stone structure with an outer staircase, and a Mameluk top of the type named Mabkhara. This minaret caused controversy among the Cairo's Architectural historians. We don't have enough sources to clear this point or determine its date.
