About Mosques

In early days of Islam, a mosque was more that just a place for spiritual solace. It also served as an educational and community-service centre. Community affairs were deliberated upon in the sublime serenity of the mosque.

In Singapore, where Muslims constitute a minority living in a society undergoing far reaching changes, the mosque stands as an important bulwark of Muslim identity and community integrity. Mosques have not just played a vital and meaningful role as the focus of religious activities, but also as centres for Islamic Learning and Social Development.

Mosques in Singapore are currently managed by volunteers, refered to as Mosque Management Board (MMB) . There are specific units within Muis which oversees the administration of Singapore Mosques in general.
