Half of over 90 Wakafs in Singapore today have nominated mosques as their beneficiaries.
By nominating a mosque as your Wakaf beneficiary, you help to:
- Promote the mosque’s longevity. For example, Wakafs help keep Masjid Sultan’s compound in good condition by footing expenses incurred in the enhancement and enlargement of the mosque building and premises, among others.
- Sustain the administration and management of the mosque. For example, income from Wakaf Haji Abdul Hamid and Haji Abdul Latib insure Masjid Abdul Hamid against fires and contributes to the salaries of officials employed by the mosque, among others.
- Perpetuate the observance of Islamic rites and ceremonies. Income from Wakafs dedicated to Masjid Jamae Chulia and Masjid Bencoolen fund the event costs of religious rites and ceremonies for mosque-goers, among others.
Masjid Sultan, a Wakaf asset, and one of Singapore's oldest mosque.
Masjid Mujahidin, the second mosque in Singapore to be built under the Mosque Building Fund, a community Wakaf introduced in 1975.

The foresight of our forefathers who created Wakaf Jamae about 200 years ago resulted in a healthy amount of funds for our masjids today.”
