This old generation masjid sited next to Darul Libanat, a girls’ orphanage, was built in 1920 on land that once belonged to the Al-Kaff family. It also used to be neighbours with the old Christian Bidadari Cemetary.
It had undergone several renovations, its most recent being in 1998, in which the prayer hall was extended to accommodate a larger congregation of 2,500 people.
It serves the religious needs of the Muslim residents living in the Potong Pasir area as well as office workers.
Besides daily and Friday prayers, there are religious classes regularly held at the masjid.
