Al Istiqamah Mosque in Singapore
Masjid Al-Istiqamah, or Al-Istiqamah Mosque (Arabic: المسجد الإستقامة), is a mosque in Singapore which was completed in 1999. It is the only mosque in Singapore to have land allocated for it before the appointment of its Mosque Building Committee by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore, MUIS.
Masjid Al Istiqamah is the second mosque to be built under Phase 3 of the Mosque Building Fund scheme headed by Muis. The building is located at the corner of Yio Chu Kang Road and Ang Mo Kio Ave 3, with the front entrance at Serangoon North Avenue 2, directly facing Blk 139 on the opposite side of the street.
The new mosques built within this phase are named after virtuous qualities as a continuation from the first one – Masjid Al-Khair (The Good). Initially, Muis had suggested the name “As-Sobr” (The Patient) for this mosque but after consultation with a few local Islamic scholars, the name “Al-Istiqamah” (the Constant) was chosen.
The three-storeyed mosque with a combination of designs from the Nusantara, Middle East and Mauritius can cater to a maximum of 3,300 worshippers at any one time. Its convertible concept enables the optimisation of space and multiple functionalities of the rooms.
The building is divided into two general areas, viz. the i’tikaf section occupying the ‘front’ portion, and the multi-purpose section making up the ‘rear’. The i’tikaf area which is roofed by solid timber can accommodate about 480, 330 and 270 worshippers on levels one, two and three respectively.;
