Masjid Ahmad Ibrahim
This mosque is named after Mr Ahmad Ibrahim, an MP of Sembawang in the 1950s and 60s. He tragically died at a pretty young age.
It was built in 1958 in the Northern part of the island, near Nee Soon Camp and Sembawang Airbase, serves the religious needs of Muslim living and working in the vicinity.
It is pretty small, able to accommodate about 200 Muslims at a time. It offers nursery, kindergarten and weekend madrasah classes for children of nearby residences in addition to daily classes for adults in the nights as well.

This mosque has been upgraded. It used to have leaky a zinc roof. I remembered back in 1991, I was praying here when a rainstorm broke out. Because I was standing under a hole in the roof, I ended up getting wet. Well, I wasn't the only one. Small consolation.
Back then on a sweltering day the interior of the mosque was like an oven. Now the main prayer hall is air-conditioned! I am not too sure if this mosque will still be there a decade or two down the road. It is on a Temporary Occupation Licence, so it could be demolished in the name of progress if the government decides to redevelop the land it is sitting on.
