Masjid Al-Iman (Jawi: مسجد الايمان; English: Al-Iman Mosque) is a mosque in Singapore located in Bukit Panjang. The four level mosque building was opened on 2 May 2003 and officiated by Minister-in-Charge of Muslim Affairs Yaacob Ibrahim on September 2004[2].

Building Facilities[edit]

The building has a basement car park, 18 classrooms, an auditorium, a computer room and a elevator serving all floors. It could accommodate about 5,000 worshippers in one congregation.

The jewel-shaped dome culminating with star-like apex symbolizes unity and act of transition between Allah and His faithful servants. The multi-painted star tinted glass roof symbolizes openness. The six minarets symbolize the six tenets of Iman. One of the tallest minarets signifies concentration, openness and victory, as well as sovereignty and divinity. It also provides a high point from which to summon the faithful for congregational prayer and is lighted at night and highlights the elevated crescent and star[3].
