Masjid Muhajirin Hot
The masjid has been re-built as part of the Singapore Islamic Hub development and was opened to public in January 2009.
Masjid Muhajirin is the very first masjid to be built under the Mosque Building Fund Scheme. Back then it was easily recognizable by its prominent dome and minaret at the entrance of the building. Located next to the Islamic Centre of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore, it was completed in April 1977 with a capacity of 1400 people and serves Muslims living in Toa Payoh and Bishan.

Mosque of my childhood
The old Muhajirin mosque meant plenty of things to me. It was one of those places where I bonded with my grandfather. I used to spend my days at his home while my parents worked and he would take me here every Friday for prayers. Much later I also attended my first madrasah class here.
I remembered the corridors of the old mosque, it was rather dark as not much of natural sunlight could get in due to the design of the building. The new mosque though occupies the same plot of land but the difference is stark. The new building is spacious, airy and pretty bright with natural light.
It is also part of a complex together with MUIS and Madrasah Al-Irsyad within the same compound. The net effect is that the mosque is very well utilised.
