» MBMF Background 

The Mosque Building and Mendaki Fund (MBMF) was formerly known as the Mosque Building Fund (MBF) and it was first introduced in 1975. The main objective of the MBF was to raise funds from Muslim employees through the Central Provident Fund (CPF) check-off mechanism to build new generation mosques in new housing estates.

In 1984, MBF was expanded to become the Mosque Building and Mendaki Fund (MBMF) to support Yayasan MENDAKI’s educational and social programmes to uplift the disadvantaged segment amongst Malay/Muslim community.

In 1975, MBF initial Muslim employees contribution was 50 cents per month. Due to the increasing costs in developing and building mosques, the MBMF contribution rates were revised in November 1995 and July 2005. MBMF rates were set based on the employees monthly wages. In addition, Muslim employees are encouraged to make greater voluntary contributions.

The mosque building programme, which started in 1975 has 4 phases. In the first three phases, the MBMF had supported the building of 22 new generation mosques in new housing estates. In phase 4, Al-Mawaddah Mosque at Sengkang was completely built in 2009. The next mosque will be built at Punggol and is expected to be completed in 2015.

The Mendaki component of the MBMF has enabled  Yayasan MENDAKI to implement educational and social development programmes for Malay/Muslims. From 1984-2007, $42 million were spent from Mendaki component of MBMF on various educational and youth developmental programmes such as MTS, M-Power, Meth-Trix, Youth-In-Action, etc with more than 150,000 students and youths have benefitted. Mendaki had also conducted various social programs such as Remarriage and Step Families Program. Other Malay/Muslim organisations such as Association of Muslim Professionals, halfway house, family service and student service centres are also utilising the portion of Mendaki component.

»  The Importance of Mosque Building 

Prophet Muhammad (saw) taught us that mosque serves as a main artery for the Muslim community.

Since the history of Hijrah (the migration of the Prophet (saw) from Mecca to Medina), the mosque has functioned as a place for gathering and a symbol of unity in the Islamic faith.

The Qubaa Mosque and the Jumaah Mosque were among the earliest mosques to be built by the Prophet (saw) since his migration from Mecca to Medina.

Mosques are strategic institutions for Islamic learning and social development for Muslims in Singapore. They are at the forefront in dealing with socio-religious issues and development of the community. Mosques have indeed evolved over the years from being just a place of worship for Muslims to become important socio-religious institutions within the community.
