The mosque in Rizvanovići was built in 1938, originally with a wooden minaret. A tall masonry minaret was added to the mosque in 1961. According to information in the records of the Medžlis of the Islamic Community of Prijedor, the Rizvanovići mosque was destroyed in stages, around 21 July 1992: the minaret was toppled with a zolja (shoulder-launched projectile); then the mosque was burned down; then the burned-out mosque was blown up, and the ruins knocked down by bulldozer.
