Ahmad Ibrahim Mosque
The facade of Masjid Ahmad Ibrahim, with its sign and minaret.
|Location||15, Jalan Ulu Seletar, Singapore|
Masjid Ahmad Ibrahim was built in 1955 and sits on a Temporary Occupation License (TOL) land. It was then known as Surau Nee Soon Jalan Ulu Seletar and its first Imam was Imam Hj Katsir.
In 1961, the surau was upgraded to the status of a Masjid to meet the growing number of Muslims in the area. In a vote for a change of name for the Masjid, the name of Ahmad Ibrahim was chosen to recognise his contributions to the Masjid. The first Friday prayers was held soon after in that year.
Over the years, various other improvements were added to the Masjid, enhancing its capacity to a congregation of around 1,000 people.
The mosque is accessible from Khatib MRT Station.
