Masjid Al-Mawaddah (Jawi: مسجد المودّه; Arabic: مسجد المودة) is a mosque located in Sengkang, at the junction of Sengkang East Road and Compassvale Bow. Opened in 2009, the mosque's name, given by the Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura is derived from the Arabic word, مودة which literally means affectionate. The name was taken from the Quran Surah Ar-Rum verse 21:
"And among His Signs is this, that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that ye may dwell In tranquillity with them, and He has put love and Mercy between your (hearts): Verily In that are Signs for those who reflect."
The mosque was built under the Phase 4 of the Mosque Building Fund programme to cater to the large demographic of young families in the Buangkok and Sengkang area. Aside from its numerous family friendly features for the young and the old, it also boasts a number of environmentally friendly features that are energy-conserving. Due to this mosque has attained the Greenmark Certification (2009 & 2011) from the Building and Construction Authority.
The open-to-all concept and "Family Friendly" theme proposed by the mosque promises various programmes and facilities to enhance community bonding among the different races and families across the different age groups.
Located 300m away from Buangkok MRT Station and 400m away from Renjong LRT Station, the mosque's location serves Muslim residents from Sengkang, Hougang and Punggol. The mosque's capacity is increased to 4,000 worshipers during peak periods.
Other than serving the religious needs of the Muslim community, the institution also provides other social services which are in line with the concept of a mosque being a multi-functional institution and a prime agent to facilitate towards an excellent Muslim Community. This encompasses the four core areas of the pillars of the mosque's activities, namely:
- Islamic Learning
- Social Development
- Family and Youth Development
- Religious Services and Referrals
- MUIS Mosque Management
- Al-Mawaddah Mosque (About Us)
