Masjid Abdul Aleem Siddique, or Abdul Aleem Siddique Mosque is a mosque in Singapore that was built as a recognition of Moulana Shah Maulana Abdul Aleem Siddiqi’s immortal work of spreading the faith of Islam and the message of peace in Singapore and elsewhere around the world.

Profile[edit]

Maulana Abdul Aleem Siddiqi, along with other Islamic activists, went on a mission to find a plot of land for the purpose of building a Mosque. They spotted an old surau (small place of prayers) at No. 90 Lorong K Telok Kurau (where the Mosque is right now). Moulana then urged the activists to raise the necessary funds to purchase the land and convert it to a Mosque. The land was conveyed on February 25, 1953 to Syed Ibrahim bin Oman Alsagoff, Ahmad bin Mohamed Ibrahim and Haji Adam Naina Mohamed Ibrahim as trustees of the All-Malaya Muslim Missionary Society (now known as JAMIYAH). The activists from the Society relentlessly raised funds and the Mosque was subsequently built on that plot of land.

The All-Malaya Muslim Missionary Society managed the Mosque during its early years. It was then managed by a committee set-up by the residents in the area. After the implementation of the Administration of Muslim Law Act (AMLA), the administration and management of the Mosque was entrusted to the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS). The Mosque is currently being managed and administered by a group of volunteers selected by MUIS as members of the Mosque Management Board (MMB).

Transportation[edit]

The mosque is accessible from Kembangan MRT Station.
