The oldest mosque in the city of Bejaia, eastern Algeria, was reopened in the first days of the current month of Ramadan. The mosque was founded in the Hammadid state (which ruled parts of the Maghreb between 1014 and 1152 AD) and then it was expanded during the Almohad era.

In addition to Ibn Khaldun, the mosque included a large number of prominent scholars, and among them was the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci (1170-1250 AD)
