The mosque was built in the 16th century, moved from its original location, demolished and rebuilt several times throughout history, and is currently awaiting restoration.

In his speech, Adviser to the Council of the Islamic Union in Trebinje Sadiq Vaslagic said that Zoba Mosque is one of the oldest mosques in the city.

He pointed out that the mosque was built during the reign of the Ottoman Sultan Ahmed I, and that it was destroyed many times throughout history, and the Islamic Union contributed to its restoration and rebuilding each time.

He pointed out that the mosque was moved to its current location in the mid-19th century due to the construction of a railway in the area.

He explained that the mosque was exposed to a fire in an attack by the Serb units in 1993 and was restored in 2010, as its beacons have not stopped calling the call to prayer since that time.

He pointed out that the Turkish World Municipalities Union launched a campaign to restore the mosque recently due to the recent water leakage from its roof.

The Turkish Federation of Municipalities of the World (governmental) had decided at its meeting last July to restore the roof of the “Zoba” mosque in cooperation with the Karatay municipality in Konya, in response to the request of the Council of the Islamic Union in Trebinji.
