The Nur Al-Din Mosque (Arabic: جَامِع نُور ٱلدِّين‎‎, romanized​Jāmiʿ Nūr ad-Dīn, transliteration: Jami Nur al-Din) is a Zengid​-era mosque in Hama, Syria.[1] It was founded by Nur al-Din in 1163-64 CE. It also contained a historic minbar from the same date, which is now held at the local Hama Museum.​[2]
The mosque was profoundly damaged in the 1982 shelling of the city and subsequently restored to its current state.
