From the start of 2020, we’ve seen many ads going around seeking support from the public to raise funds for Mosque Upgrading Projects (MUPs). 

When Singapore was hit by COVID-19 in March 2020, mosques had to be closed temporarily and many activities including construction and upgrading were halted. 

This affected our mosques greatly because for one, mosques can no longer hold congregational prayers or classes for a time and two, they won’t be able to receive donations from the public. 

Here are 3 mosques which are currently undergoing upgrades during the global pandemic: 

1. Masjid Khalid

Though mosques are slowly reopening post circuit breaker, the number of mosque congregants today are still very limited. Mosque-based classes and efforts to seek funds from the public have now moved online. 

Masjid Abdul Gafoor and Masjid Bencoolen, are still unable to reopen due to their upgrading works.  

These mosques need our support more than ever now. 

Let’s do our part to support our mosques, especially those who’ve been hit harder than the rest. Show your support by contributing via ourmasjid.sg. May Allah reward your generosity towards building mosques for our community insyaAllah!
