Masjid An-Nur Hot
Masjid An-Nur is more than just a landmark in Woodlands. The masjid has created a name for its outreach programme and grassroots activities through its Qaryah (outreach) initiatives. It is also one of the masjids, which provided strong support for the kidney donation campaign. Built in 1980 under the Mosque Building fund, An-Nur can accommodate up to 2800 worshippers. There are madrasah and kindergarten classes offered at the masjid to children of the neighbouring estate.
It has been recently reopened in June 2013 after 2 years of renovation works to give the mosque a fresh, new lease of life.

This is quite a happening mosque
I lived opposite An Nur from 2010 till very recently. When I first moved in, the mosque was preparing itself for a major renovation. I went there to register my son for kindergarten classes. The condition of the mosque was pathetic to say the very least. It definitely had seen better days.
So for the better part of 2 years, the mosque existed on an adjacent plot of land in container buildings. It may not look much but the spirit of the mosque remained unbroken. There was always something going on, some activity, class or lecture.
On Sunday, there would be devotional sessions accompanied by beating of drums. Very Arabesque. Very well attended too. On those days, you'll find cars parked along the main road when the carpark was full.
Now the actual building is ready. I visited it once before I moved out. The wait was well worth it. The mosque has a new lease of life.
