About Ar-Raudhah Mosque
The name “Ar-Raudhah” meaning “The Garden of Heaven” was given by the former Mufti Sheikh Syed Isa Muhammad Semait on 24th August 1981. The mosque was officially opened by then Senior Minister of State for Education, Mr Sidek Bin Saniff, on 24th January 1993. Ar-Raudhah Mosque is one out of thirteen mosques in the South West Mosque Cluster (SWMC).
The mosque is staffed by 34 mosque officers, and has a very strong volunteer base of some 300 people, ranging from youths to senior citizens. Ar-Raudhah is also the only mosque in Singapore that provides its own funeral management – literally a cradle to grave service for the society.
Ar-Raudhah Mosque provides a variety of programmes for the community regardless of age. From the Ar-Raudhah Kindergarten and aLIVE madrasah for the children, to Sijil Pengajian Islam (SPI) and diploma for the youth, and to Adult Islamic Education programmes for the adult, the mosque ensures that everyone has a chance at gaining beneficial knowledge.
The mosque’s youth wing, Al-Fateh Ar-Raudhah, consists of about 50 active members. They focus on training and development of its leaders as well as holistic programmes for its members. The mosque is also heavily involved in community engagement, especially with the residents of the nearby RenCi Nursing Home and Bukit Batok Home for the Aged (BBHA).
At present, Ar-Raudhah Mosque accommodates 4,000 congregants at one go. With five levels of praying area, the mosque has embarked on a lift-building project in late 2015, so as to cater to the needs of the community here in Bukit Batok.
