Masjid Darul Ghufran located in Tampines Avenue 5. A very popular mosque among those living in the East, the mosque becomes crowded every Friday due to the lack of a mosque in the neighbouring town of Simei. Previously, the mosque can only acommodate 4500 people to pray at one time. The current renovation, which is due to complete in 2018, will increase acommodation size up to 5,500 worshippers, making it the largest mosque in the east of Singapore.To support this beloved mosque, there are a few events happening this weekend (3rd-4th September) whose funds will go towards the renovation of the mosque. And since it’s already the September holidays, parents, do bring your kiddos to these events!
“Whosoever builds for Allah a masjid, Allah will reward him similar to it in paradise.” (Bukhari)“Whosoever shares in building a masjid for Allah, even if it is as small as a bird’s nest, Allah (S.W.T.) will build for him a house in Paradise.” (Ahmad)
