Mosque at Heart
On the authority of Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) from the Prophet (peace & blessings of Allah be upon him) who said,
"Whoever relieves a believer's distress of the distressful aspects of this world, Allah will rescue him from a difficulty of the difficulties of the Hereafter.
Whoever alleviates (the situation of) one in dire straits who cannot repay his debt, Allah will alleviate his lot in both this world and in the Hereafter.
Whoever conceals (the faults of) a Muslim, Allah will conceal (his faults) in this life and the Hereafter.
Allah is helping the servant as long as the servant is helping his brother.
Whoever follows a path in order to seek knowledge thereby, Allah will make easy for him, due to it, a path to Paradise.
No people gather together in a house of the houses of Allah, reciting the Book of Allah and studying it among themselves, except that tranquility descended upon them, mercy covers them, the angels surround them and Allah makes mention of them to those in His presence.
Whoever is slowed by his deeds will not be hastened forward by his lineage."
(Recorded in Muslim)
Al-Istighfar Mosque has been in operation since 11 June 1999 and was officially opened by Dr Ahmad Mohamed Magad, Member of Parliament for Pasir Ris GRC on Sunday, 30 July 2000.
The design of the mosque is based on the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. This style embodies building elements necessary for comfortable habitation in the tropics such as wide roof eaves, high ceiling promoting good cross-ventilation and sun shade moldings above windows and fuses them with elements from Islamic architecture.
The mosque is able to accommodate about 3500 congregants.
