Ramadan is the only month in the year that Muslims carry out the Tarawih night prayers. It is sunnah for us to pray on the nights of Ramadan with sincere faith and hope for Allah’s rewards.
For those who are looking for the best mosques to carry out these extra prayers in comfort, here are 5 of them to look out for:
25 Paya Lebar Road
This mosque is conveniently located right beside the Geylang bazaar, so you can even drop by here to carry out Tarawih prayers once you are done with your explorations.
For those who wish to carry out Tarawih Prayers but are limited by time, this is the masjid to visit.
The Tarawih Prayers here are prayed in 8 raka'at and are conducted in a speedy manner. Prayers are usually done by 9pm - in good time to head home and go to bed early so that you can wake up the next morning well rested for work.
155 Bedok North Ave 1
Masjid Ansar made it to this list for several reasons. Firstly, the Tarawih prayers are conducted in the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH), which already makes for spacious and comfortable prayers.
Secondly, the MPH is air-conditioned. This means a relatively un-sticky experience while praying 20 raka’at, which is the number that is carried out in this mosque.
Thirdly, child-minding services are provided for parents. The kids are given a room of their own so that prayers won't be disturbed.
Altogether, this mosque provides for a conducive and peaceful Tarawih experience, especially for those bringing young children with them.
10 Keng Chow Street
The great thing about this quaint mosque is that it is not as busy as others are.
According to one of the people who polled for this article, even when it is packed on weekends, it feels cosy.
Another great thing about it is that the prayer hall is air conditioned, so that you can pray Tarawih in comfort.
For those praying with their elderly family members or have knee issues, you may also enjoy the fact that the prayers are carried out on the first floor - so no climbing of stairs required.
67 Jalan Lapang
This mosque, with its modern kampong-like style, has made it to this list for its air conditioned and thus comfortable prayer area.
Other than that, prayers here are carried out in quite a fast manner, for those with time constraints.
Its only downside, perhaps, is that parallel parking skills are required for those driving here, as this mosque is located amongst landed houses.
10 Gentle Road
This is another mosque with homely, kampong vibes. The good thing about carrying out Tarawih here is that it is not packed as other bigger mosques.
Moreover, its prayer hall is air-conditioned for a comfortable praying experience.
For those who do not drive, it is in a convenient location, and it is only a 10 minute walk from Novena MRT Station.
