Masjid Al-Muttaqin, or Al-Muttaqin Mosque (Arabic: 'مسجد المتقين), is the fifth Mosque completed in Singapore under the Mosque Building Fund Scheme Phase I. The mosque's official ground-breaking ceremony was officiated by Mr Syed Ali Redha Alsagoff, chairman of Lembaga Biasiswa Kenangan Maulud (LBKM), on April 29, 1979 and it was officially opened on September 2, 1980 by the late Mr Rahmat Kenap (MP for Geylang Serai). The chosen name Al-Muttaqin refers to the pious people who are ever aware of God the Almighty.

Located at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 in the central area of the Singapore island, the Mosque serves the residents of Ang Mo Kio housing estates and it can accommodate up to 2,700 worshippers. It has gone beyond its religious function as a place of worship to even offer a homeopathy welfare clinic. Besides that, it also offers part-time religious classes (Madrasah) and kindergarten classes.


Masjid Al–Muttaqin was built in 1980 at a cost of $1.83 million. The land cost was $268,775.00 and the cost of furnishing it was $200,000.00. Between 1987 and 1988, a new floor was added to make rooms for the pre-school classes.

With the ever increasing activities and the demands for more space Masjid Al-Muttaqin was further renovated in 1998, adding a third level at a cost of $2.6 million.


Apart from the five daily congregational prayers, the mosque also conducts the compulsory Friday Prayer, Idul Fitri and Idul Adha prayers.

Masjid Al-Muttaqin serves the community by disseminating the latest information from Muslim bodies like MUIS, MENDAKI and AMP. The mosque also frequently receives delegations from Singapore Police Force, neighbouring schools and foreign diplomats. Usually, a briefing on Islam and the Muslims in Singapore are given to the visitors. The Mosque also has collaborations with Central CDC, and grassroots organisations in the Ang Mo Kio GRC such as Yio Chu Kang CC, Kebun Baru CC, Teck Ghee CC and neighbouring schools in organising events.

In addition to the Pre-School and Madrasah (religious) classes, Masjid Al-Muttaqin also conducts enrichment courses like Quran reading, Marriage Preparation and Haj Pilgrimage.

Al-Muttaqin Mosque also distributes basic food ration such as rice, oil and sardine to needy families who are registered with MUIS and the mosque. In addition to providing free religious classes, the Mosque also conducts programmes such as the sewing, handicraft and reading classes to provide skills to the assistance clients, so as to help them out of the vicious poverty cycle.

Masjid Al-Muttaqin conducts talks on health education and healthy life-style as part of its efforts to promote health awareness amongst the Muslims. The Muslimah (Women) Wing conducts its weekly Kebayarobics exercise session every Sunday morning at the mosque, Bishan Park or Yio Chu Kang Community Club.
