The mosque is located near the southern cemetery of the Muqattam Hills, a low range of hills to the east of Cairo. It has an average height of 180 metres (590 ft) with the highest peak at 213 metres (699 ft) above sea level. It is divided into three sections. The highest segment is a low mountain landform called Moqattam Mountain. It was an important ancient Egyptian quarry site for limestone, used in construction of mosques and churches. The Lulua Mosque was also built with this limestone. The mosque is close to this hill range. The mosque is about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the Sharia Salah Salim, towards the southeast.
Fatimid Caliph al-Hakim (9961021), the third caliph in Egypt of the Ismaili Shia Dynasty, also credited with building Cairo, built this mosque among many small mosques that were built on the Muqattam Hill. He was considered an inscrutable and misunderstood ruler. He was reportedly lost in the hill ranges while wandering in a strange manner in the night; his cloak was found with a dagger stashed in it. Etymologically the name al-Lu'lu'a means "the pearl" as the mosque's exterior appearance was ornate and lustrous.
