Abdul Hamid (Kg Pasiran) Mosque
This mosque was built in 1932 and now serves the needs of office workers around Newton and Novena.
It is comparatively smaller than most other mosques, with a capacity of 300. Despite the upgrading works, the masjid still retains much of its original structure.
The masjid offers religious studies classes at least twice a week and is one of a number of mosques in Singapore to have employed a full-time imam to lead the five daily prayers in the masjid.

Like an oasis
I love praying at this mosque when I have the chance to. Thing is, you would never imagined a mosque being amongst all the landed houses surrounding it. But more than 5 decades ago, that same neighbourhood was a Malay kampong and that explains the existence of the mosque and hence its popular name Masjid Kampong Pasiran.
The mosque is still there as it sits on private land, which is a good thing for it. After being rebuilt, I find that this mosque is understatedly classy and very comfortable indeed for you to even want to linger.
