At one glance, the masjid blends the architectural flavours of buildings in the Middle East, the Nusantra region and Mauritius. Its cream and turquoise-green structure stands proudly amidst the housing estate in Serangoon North.
One of the most recently built masjids under the Mosque Building Fund, it was completed in May 1999 and can accommodate up to 3300 worshippers. It is dubbed the "Multimedia Masjid" in recognition of its IT facilities.

If there is a mosque whose construction I anticipated nervously, this was it. During the period I was living in Serangoon North Ave 1, i would have to make a trip down to AMK to be able to pray at a mosque. During the month of Ramadhan, sometimes it meant praying at a makeshift congregation under a block. So, when it came to our knowledge that a mosque was to be built at the location it is located now, many were a little disappointed as we could not fathom just how a mosque could be built at such a narrow tract of land.
Fast forward a few years, when the mosque was opened, I was quite happy. It wasn't the biggest or grandest but quickly I banished those thoughts as the point of a house of worship was not in competing for grandeur but more of how we worshippers honour the place.
Slowly, the mosque grew on me and after more than 13 years of fond memories, I still find every visit there like a homecoming.
