Masjid Taha, or Taha Mosque (Arabic: مسجد طه‎‎), is the only mosque for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Singapore. It is located at Onan Road, adjacent to Masjid Khalid, a mainstream mosque.[1]

Masjid Taha is the only mosque in Singapore not administered by Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura,[2] due to the difference in religious beliefs between the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and the Singaporean Muslims who are predominantly Sunni of the Shafi'i school of thought.

Speaking at Taha Mosque, its mosque in Onan Road,...Taha Mosque, for instance, is barely 50m from Khalid Mosque, which is attended by mainstream worshippers in the area. However, there were some complaints when Masjid Taha was rebuilt in the 1980s that it should not be called a mosque because of the group's status. Ahmadis also have their own burial area here.
