FOREWORD
By Mr Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister & MP for Jurong GRC
Over the years, mosques in Singapore have evolved from being places of worship, to being key partners in our approach to preserving and strengthening our society. They are indispensable to Singapore’s unique way of providing space for each community to practice its faith freely, while preserving and building harmony and unity in our multiracial and multi-religious society. They are also channels by which the community supports the less privileged and the poor. The Assyakirin Mosque is an example of how these roles are performed for the common good. It has both served the needs of Muslim residents and contributed to the wellbeing of the Jurong community by building trust and understanding amongst people of different faiths. I commend the committee members of the Mosque, from the time it was established till today, for making this a priority and for initiating projects each year to foster integration. Some of Assyakirin Mosque’s initiatives include hosting visits from secondary schools and residents to understand the Islamic Faith, and sharing meals with non-Muslims during the Month of Ramadan. I have always treasured my visits and meals together with Assyakirin’s leaders and worshippers, together with my community leaders. Assyakirin Mosque has also always been there to help the needy, providing them food assistance and collaborating with others to help them. One such example is how the Mosque has partnered with Hwa Chong Institution to conduct weekend tuition programmes for needy Primary Six students, and to collect festive Hari Raya clothes to distribute to the less fortunate. The Mosque has also helped to integrate foreigners working here, providing them the facilities to pray and imbibe Islamic knowledge during their sojourn in Singapore. I am sure that there will be many more collaborations in future between Assyakirin Mosque, our churches and temples, our schools, and our grassroots and the broader community. Our Inter-Racial and Religious Confidence Circle (IRCC) will help promote these activities. This is the Singapore we have built together, which we cherish as citizens, and which we must continue to improve. The peace and mutual trust amongst our people has not come about by chance, and is unfortunately rare in the world we see around us. It is the result of leadership, imagination and effort on the part of many. Let us keep playing our part to keep our unique way of life and to build a tightly knit society. I wish Assyakirin Mosque great success as you build on the achievements of the past decade and move ahead.

FOREWORD
By Haji Abdul Rahman Bin Bakar, General Manager of South West Mosque Cluster
Alhamdulillah. Assyakirin Mosque is an active member of South West Mosque Cluster(SWMC). Apart from serving its basic function as a place of worship and Islamic learning, Assyakirin Mosque is one of the six Social Development-lead mosques in SWMC. Using the network of resources at national and community levels, Assyakirin Mosque helps to implement a more holistic intervention for the low-income and disadvantaged families within its immediate surroundings. Assyakirin Mosque has also proven to be an integral living part of our Singapore society. Through IRCC, Assyakirin is involved in building trust and understanding amongst people of different faiths. Through its engagement with New Singaporean Muslims, Assyakirin Mosque introduces the "Singapore Muslim Identity" already embraced by the locals. As it build on its achievements, I trust Assyakirin Mosque will continue to play a critical role in the implementation of the strategies and recommendations of Mosque Convention 2011 in the next five years, insyallah. On behalf of everyone in SWMC, I wish the management board, staff and activists of Assyakirin Mosque every success. Allahumma amin.

ChAIRMAN’S MESSAGE
By Ustaz Suhaimi Mustar, Mosque Executive Chairman
On behalf of the Assyakirin Mosque Management Board, staff & volunteers, I would like to thank all of our stakeholders for showing great interest in what Assyakirin Mosque had done in previous years and will continue to do in the following years ahead. Assyakirin Mosque “Our Success Story: 2008 to 2011” is a publication that encapsulates the end of 2011. It is an initiative by the mosque to showcase our core strengths in Islamic learning, education and social development programmes. In Mosque Convention 2011, the agenda was to focus on PEOPLE. Enhancing spirituality, guiding the community and changing people’s lives in an increasingly challenging world are the key strategies which will be implemented within the mosque fraternity. In enhancing spirituality, we will strengthen our mosque as an institution to provide tranquility and solace, as well as to embrace the spirituality of the community through highly effective socio-religious programmes. In guiding the community, we will develop core mosque leadership that will create transformational change through our mosque and guide the community in an increasingly challenging world. In changing lives, we strive to make Assyakirin Mosque as touch points that change lives by enhancing outreach, establishing support base and increasing participation in programmes and alleviating the social challenges of the community. In the spirit of consultation, we look forward to your ideas and suggestions, on how all of us can work together to set the Mosque Convention 2011 agenda and protect our common interest in Singapore. Finally, Assyakirin Mosque will continue to find ways to provide quality services and value-added programmes. This mosque will continue to play a positive role in enhancing a strong community bonding and cohesion among Singaporeans.

ABOUT US
Mosque History
The redevelopment of Assyakirin Mosque, located at 550 Yung An Road Singapore 618617 costs approximately S$10.2 million; to accommodate the needs and demand of Muslims in the Jurong area. This project was completed at the end of the year 2002. The Assyakirin Mosque Management Board requested and gained permission from the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) to hold various projects to raise development fund. The previous Assyakirin Mosque was built and declared open on 30th April 1978. It was the third new generation mosque built in the First Stage. Cost of building construction and land purchase was S$1,270,950.59, excluding fixtures and fittings and office equipment. Leading To The Redevelopment Project Based on findings from detailed study made by MUIS in 1997, it was decided that Assyakirin Mosque have to be redeveloped to meet future needs. The study found: 1. Rapid development would take place within the five year period in the Jurong region. Old flats would be replaced with spanking newly designed flats. 2. Population growth expected in the Jurong West Extension area. Highly likely more Muslims will relocate to this region. At that point of time, Assyakirin mosque can only accommodate 3,000 congregations. It will not be able to cater to any increase in numbers of congregation during public holidays. 3. This situation will be made worse when development in its surrounding area has completed. 4. Majapahit mosque was demolished in the year 2000, increasing the possibility of growth in number of Assyakirin mosque’s congregation. 5. Assyakirin mosque’s land was not fully utilised. The gross floor measurement was 2,549.34 sq m. It could be widened to 3,231 sq m. 6. This is cost effective as the project was undertaken when price of building materials was low. Based on the above and several other factors i.e. user-friendly and modern facilities, cost effective, optimum design and other technical requirements, MUIS decided to embark on redeveloping the new Assyakirin Mosque. This decision is corresponding with government efforts in the national development program.

CENTRE FOR ISLAMIC CIVILISATION
Towards a 21St Century Islamic Renaissance
Specialised Islamic Learning: Islamic Civilisation Muslims take great pride in citing a hadith that says “seek knowledge even it is in China. “It points to the importance of seeking knowledge, even if it meant traveling as far away as China. Islam was marked by the creation of a civilization and the education of culture. While Islam, as a religion, share with other religions many of features that are common to religions in general, this religion has certain aspects that are particular to it. It has elements of interaction with other civilization and cultures that other religions did not have. This civilization known as the Islamic civilization, and this culture we label as Islamic are the expression of a sequence of events, situations and social styles, Islam did not stop at co-existence with science. Instead, every scientific subject become imbued by and linked to the Islamic faith. The relationship between religion and intellectual learning, or between natural science and what lies beyond it become one of interaction and fusion. The Islamic civilization was the masterpiece of a human being who had reached internal harmony and composure. Thus, he created a civilization in which they are given the same attributes as those that have been obtained, and provided on top of that Allah gave him, until surpassed all other civilization in harmony...”

IC Mission
To be the Resource Centre and Platform for Knowledge on Islamic Civilisation.

IC Vision
To Enlighten about Islamic History and Civilisation & to Revive Awareness on its Magnificence and Beauty.

About Centre For Islamic Civilisation There is a growing necessity for us to turn to history, to see how Islamic beliefs were put into practice in different areas of life. History has shown that we excelled in philosophy, sciences, literature, medicine, mathematics and the arts. Any great achievement will start from a humble beginning. Assyakirin Mosque will be the ‘humble beginning’ to the reawakening of knowledge on the Great Islamic Civilisation. The immense value of the influence of Islamic knowledge on western culture and education is underestimated by even knowledgeable scholars. In Singapore, Assyakirin Mosque shall be instrumental for the disclosure and acknowledgement of these contributions to help all educators understand the history of their field. The Centre for Islamic Civilisation will reach out to the community, both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, with the information on how Islam was taken as the complete way of life during the Islamic epoch of greatness, ie Life with order and balance; the kind of setting that will help produce great Muslim Scholars.

Enhancing Spirituality Children are great gifts from Allah to parents. They require special care to remain healthy and strong, not only physically but mentally and spiritually. Every child is born in a pure state. However, they can be easily influenced by the positive and negative factors surrounding them. These negative factors can be avoided through the right quest for knowledge. Therefore, an early exposure to faith formation is crucial where they will develop deep understanding of Islam and applying the Islamic values to their daily lives. Assyakirin Mosque Madrasah which started in 1987, has grown and developed to over 40 classes in 2010. The curriculum was enhanced to suit the current situation of our Muslim children. Thus, since 2007, we adopted the aL.I.V.E curriculum which was developed by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS), in our weekly Madrasah program and expanded our Quranic Literacy Study classes from Nursery students to adult learners. The teaching of aL.I.V.E and Quranic Literacy Study requires multi-sensory, interactive methods that are interesting, fun and easily understood. Students experience handson activities, field trips, group discussions, project based activities and role play. These activities build self-confidence and self-esteem in students to enable them to make the right decision and find ways of solving their problems. We hope that Assyakirin Mosque Madrasah will remain as a legacy to all and continue to produce quality, knowledgeable and Ummah of high values. Insha `Allah.

Madrasah Assyakirin awarded by MUIS as the aL.I.V.E. Centre of Excellence in 2009.

Inspire Kids to Explore and Discover Islam Kids 3 Field Trip to East Coast Park to experience Wudhu’ using sea water. The children were taught of the various types of clean water (Mutlak Water) that can be used for taking Wudhu’. The children also experienced performing Solat outdoor and were explained of the important things to take note before performing Solat. In this way they understand the importance of solat wherever they go. They learnt how to wear the Ihram and the way of doing the Tawaf during the Hajj season. At the end of the semester the kids will presented their Project Work that they had already learnt in the whole year.- Arkanul Islam and Arkanul Iman. By this way we assess their understanding and their public speaking skills.

Youth & Social Development Department The mosque today not only serves as a place of worship for Muslims. It is becoming an important socio-religious institution, a referral centre and an avenue for community interaction and dialogue. For example, we provide marriage guidance courses, family counseling services; youth outreach programs and are actively involved in racial and religious integration. In reshaping the content for social development, our strategies are to make mosques more youth-friendly, family friendly and establish more community-friendly mosque by networking with social service agencies and connecting people in need with those agencies. To deal with social challenges of our people, we believe the mosque has the ability to reach out to more people and is a powerful institution that can influence the social life of the community. On our part, we have implemented social development programmes that help youths, families, workers and the community to be on top of challenges and be successful in a highly modern and globalised society. There are still many areas where improvements can be made. We wish to strive to make these improvements in our future plans. We hope to increase outreach capabilities by strengthening our community networks and establishing new ones, to bring more from the community into the fold of the mosques. The key initiatives we will endeavor to undertake would be a) to strengthen collaborations with national agencies, grassroots and community organizations. b) Expand befriending programme to special groups beyond zakat recepients c) Establish and strengthen collaborations for social development purposes at neighbourhood level to increase outreach and harness more resources. The mosque will serve as a first-stopcentre for people seeking assistance and the subsequent rendering of help is also a good indicator of the successes of these efforts. We hope that the desired end-state for Assyakirin Mosque to eventually be a place where our community is able to find tranquility and solace as well as enhance the spirituality of our community through highly effective socio-religious programmes.

Blood Donation Drive: The Inter-Faith Way
Posted on 10 June 2009 23 May 2009 marked a significant inter-faith event in multi-racial Singapore. Together with Health Science Authority (HSA) and Red Cross, CHCSA jointly organized a blood donation drive with Assyakirin Mosque and City Harvest Church. The blood donation drive came about under the Rahmatan Lil Alamin (Blessings to All) project – a community service to bless all races and communities, which MUIS participated during the Aceh tsunami and Sichuan earthquake. The Chairman Executive of Assyakirin Mosque, Suhaimi Mustar, 43, shared with City News how he first felt nervous being a first-time blood donor, but after he had done it, relished the joy of donating. Suhaimi said, ”I wanted to kickstart a project, but friends suggested it may not be effective to do this alone. Then we remembered a past event with City Harvest during Family Day last year. I heard from colleagues that City Harvest is a very strong organization with lots of members. That’s when we think that regardless of religions, we live in a multi-racial country, we are all brothers. We want to work with any other organization, locally or internationally, be it churches, temples or others.” Norhalizah Rosley, 26, from Assyakirin Mosque, first knew about City Harvest Community Services Association (CHCSA) through a friend. Surfing to CHCSA’s website, she emailed and got in touch with the organizers there. “This is our first blood donation project. Partnership with CHCSA means good harmony with other religions. We should do more on a MUIS cluster level, involve more mosques, and with other religious bodies.” “Assyakirin Mosque serves as the Centre for Islamic civilization. We screen documentaries to showcase Islamic civilization to modern society. Hence you not only donate blood but get to understand Islamic civilization and its history as well.” CHCSA started their blood donation drives in 2000. Executive Director, Darryl Loh hopes to jointly organize more blood donation drives with mosques, temples and other religious bodies. Assyakirin is the third mosque CHCSA has collaborated with to date.

Assyakirin Mosque: News & Media

CHCSA Programme Manager, Irene Ho, commented, “A multi-religious blood donation drive is a good cause, both to save lives and foster religious harmony. So people will be aware of the various faiths and cultures.” Lim Idy, Donor Manager for the Singapore Red Cross Society, hopes to see more multi-racial blood donation drives. She congratulated Assyakirin Mosque for successfully hosting it for the first time. “This is a convenient location to donate blood and a good coverage for this neighbourhood.” She also thanked CHCSA for providing pre-registration projections before the actual event. “For a successful donation, we must have a turn-out of 140 people, to hit a target of 100 units of blood per drive,” she said.

One first-time donor, Aisyah Bte Abdul Razak told City News, “I hope to donate blood more. It’s a great partnership between the mosque and church. Commendable efforts by both for religious harmony.” Grace Tay, another first-time donor commented, “This is a breakthrough, to get people from outside into a mosque. We should not be reserved and should not harbor the attitude of not supporting other religions.” Abdul Rais Bin Ahmad, 41, board member of Assyakirin Mosque and Vice-Chairman of Inter-Racial Confidence Circle (IRCC) for Taman Jurong CC, has donated blood over 20 times, since he was a schoolboy. “I often head down to Bloodbank@HSA. Donating blood is to save lives, it’s a good cause. This event raises awareness and is a good showcase to the community that inter-religious understanding exists. It is not about a mosque standing on its own, but an inter-faith thing we help each other with.”

Assyakirin Mosque in Taman Jurong reaches out to workers
By Roslinda Rahmat, Channel NewsAsia Posted: 17 December 2008 1652 hrs SINGAPORE: A mosque in Singapore's western neighbourhood of Taman Jurong is reaching out to foreign workers in the area. The Assyakirin mosque is not just a regular place of prayer for some 5,000 Bangladeshi workers. The workers also take part in various religious and community services conducted by the mosque. Some 200 of them have even volunteered their time for activities such as food distribution to the poor families in the neighbourhood. They have even appointed one of their own, Mohamad Nazrul Islam, as the Amir or leader of their group. Apart from holding religious classes at the mosque, the group also helps fellow workers with job-related or family problems. - CNA/vm

Tharman says mosques part of social fabric
Posted: 17 August 2008 1621 hrs SINGAPORE: Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam says mosques in Singapore are more than a place of worship. They have become an integral part of the nation's social fabric, says Mr Tharman. He was speaking during the Assyakirin Mosque's annual Family Day. The Minister said mosques are responsible for upholding their social and community duties in the larger context of Singapore's multi-racial and multireligious society. For instance, the Assyakirin Mosque has been giving out food vouchers and school fee subsidies to families in Taman Jurong and Jurong West. And the event on Sunday was to raise funds for upgrading courses and free tuition. The mosque currently supports 120 low-income families and 1,200 students. Mr Tharman said such care complements the government's efforts to help the needy move in tandem with the rest of society. - 938LIVE

“Mengapa memilih dan menghantar anak ke Assyakirin Kindergarten”
Saya Narni, ibu kepada Siti Nur Aisyah Ibrahim (K2). Saya memilih dan menghantar anak saya ke Assyakirin Kindergarten kerana dapat memperkenalkan anak saya kepada masjid dan agama Islam pada peringkat awal, disamping itu juga anak saya dapat belajar pelajaran adedamik yang sama seperti kindergarten di luar sana. Alhamdulillah memang ternyata, selepas tiga bulan anak saya di peringkat nursery dulu, dia sudah pun boleh menghafal ayat kursi dengan konfiden. Syabas! Kepada semua guru-guru yang mengajar dengan penuh komitmen dan dedikasi. Mengadakan ‘field atau education trip’ yang dapat meluaskan lagi minda anak saya. Anak saya juga dapat mengikuti kelas ‘Gift of Reading’ dari sejak nursery hingga sekarang K2. Pihak kindergarten juga telah mengadakan kursus ‘Mendaki 3M (Maju, Minda, Matematika)’ untuk ibubapa yang saya sendiri telah mengikutinya. Ia mengajar cara lebih efektif mengajar anak matematik di rumah. Alhamdulillah, ianya sangatsangat dapat membantu saya. Di Assyakirin juga, diadakan ceramah-ceramah agama yang dapat diikuti sementara menunggu anak saya habis sekolah. Akhir sekali saya sangat menyokong apa-apa jua aktiviti yang diadakan di Assyakirin Kindergarten dan berharap Assyakirin Kindergarten terus mencapai kejayaan.

Hi. My name is Norshidah and I have been sending my granddaughter, Siti Hajar to school at Assyakirin Mosque. She is attending Nursery class this year. I get to know about the school is through my husband friends whom has been sending her daughter there since in Playgroup and now she is in her last year at school. So last year in 2011, I enrolled my granddaughter in the Playgroup class. She is now in her 2nd year. What I like about the school is the nice environment and it suit her and she loving it. And now she has learnt how to become more independent, learning how to share toys, recognize alphabets, numbers, colours, shapes, recite doa and even now she knows her friend name and teachers. I’m very proud of her. The principal and teachers are very friendly and easy to communicate with them. She love her school and everyday she will tell me what happen in the class and what did she do. I’m joining as Parent Volunteer at the school. I’m happy with the school. Thank you so much Assyakirin Principal and teacher for what they teach my granddaughter. And the way they welcome us is very friendly. Thank you so-so much from the bottom of my heart.

By Asma d/o Abdul Rasool Assalamualaikum Wr Wb My journey in Masjid Assyakirin as a parent with my son started 4 years ago. After learning AlQuran here, my son Ihsaan is reciting with Tartil. The asatizah here are very knowledgeable, friendly and always adorable. The aL.I.V.E. programs are very educational and helps the students to be in close connection with the masjid. Thanks to all asatizah for their consistent trust and support for us. On the whole, I feel that I am also part of the Assyakirin Madrasah family and would love to remain like that forever, InsyaAllah!

“How Masjid Assyakirin MMB Can Do It?”
By Haj Mohamed | hajqlty@singnet.com.sg Many brothers have expressed surprise by the invitation of Assyakirin Mosque Management Board to “our esteemed jemaah – to a friendly Engagement andEnvisioning Session where views and feedback will be discussed. All manner of constructive comments and ideas are welcomed.” I was asked how Masjid Assyakirin MMB can do it? In my opinion, the answer lies in the MMB selection process. For Masjid Assyakirin MMB, persons with leadership qualities who are capable of conducting feedback sessions with jemaah are selected. So they are able to lead the jemaah. Another important aspect of Masjid Assyakirin MMB which even MUIS should emulate is the timing of the session. They have fixed it at 8 pm – a time which enables most workers to attend the session. This timing shows the sincerity of the MMB in seeking feedback, minimizing the inconvenience to the jemaah. How I wish all masjids here conduct such monthly jemaah feedback sessions. Well done and excellent, Masjid Assyakirin MMB! Alhamdulillah! May Allah (swt) help you in your sincere efforts to reach the jemaah. Wassalam

MESSAGE BY OUR PARTNERS

Mr Goh Peng Tong, PBM Chairman, Taman Jurong Citizens’ Consultative Committee
Assyakirin Mosque has been very active in Taman Jurong constituency and become an important pillar in communitybuilding. Its management has organised many activities for Taman Jurong residents, and collaborated closely with Taman Jurong Citizens’ Consultative Committee (CCC) and our grassroots organizations to foster goodwill. The Mosque has been our long time partner in the annual breakfast event during Ramadan. It has also been assisting us in our efforts to develop community resilience, such as through the Inter-Racial and Religious Confidence Circle (IRCC) and the Community Engagement and Emergency Committee. The CCC is truly fortunate to have a good partner in Assyakirin Mosque, supporting us in planning and leading community and welfare programmes in Taman Jurong. My fellow grassroots leaders and I have built up a good friendship with the management of the Mosque and I look forward to many more collaborations too help our residents. Congratulations to Assyakirin Mosque for a publication that showcases its many good initiatives and efforts.

Mr Charles Low Director / ProEd Consortium Hwa Chong Institution
We have been partnering Assyakirin Mosque for more than five years and we have been very blessed by the special relationship we have built with the Muslim community. Our students have participated in home cleaning and food distribution during the Ramadan period as well as helped to initiate and run a tuition programme for primary six children at the mosque. The annual June camp for these children is a highlight that we all look forward to. We were also very honoured to join in your annual IFTAR Evening and to break fast with you on that occasion. Through these experiences, our students have gained a greater awareness and appreciation of Muslim culture and customs. Their firsthand experiences have helped them grow into wiser and more well rounded Singaporeans. We are also excited about the new initiatives we will be working on together in 2012 and beyond. Thank you, Assyakirin Mosque, for making this possible.

The Management of Assyakirin Mosque would like to express thanks to the following partners:

Staff of Assyakirin Mosque and to everyone who has helped in one way or another to make this coffeetable book successful.
