The Ibrahim Mosque (Chinese: 易卜拉欣清真寺) is a mosque in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong. It is the sixth and latest mosque built in Hong Kong. The mosque is managed by the United Welfare Union Hong Kong Limited.[2]

History[edit]

In March 2011, a Muslim group approached the government for a land to build a mosque. A piece of land was offered by the government for one year but the offer was declined, instead a site at Hoi Wan Road was identified to be more suitable. On 20 September 2012, the Lands Department approved the application and the site was handed over to the United Welfare Union Hong Kong on 1 February 2013.

The construction of the mosque started in July 2013. It was completed and inaugurated on 24 November 2013.[3][4][5]

Architecture[edit]

The mosque has several facilities such as ablution room, pantry, conference room and an office for Imam.

Transportation[edit]

The mosque is accessible within walking distance South West from Yau Ma Tei Station of the MTR.[6]
