According to Saudi media, the bomber detonated his device as security officers were breaking their Ramadan fast.
Footage on the al-Arabiya television showed a blazing vehicle in the wake of the attacks. Currently, there are no details of casualties and no official comment from Saudi authorities on the attack.
The mosque is the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad in Medina, the second-holiest city in Islam after Mecca.
