During the month of Ramadan, Muslims are encouraged to attend special congregational prayers at night called the terawih prayers.
Though most will make their way to the nearest mosque, some will opt for places closer to home such as void decks or multi-purpose halls – common spaces converted to a place of prayer during the fasting month. These musollas, which means a place for praying, for this month, becomes a place for the muslim community to meet their neighbours living in the same or adjacent housing estates.
Though it is unsure since when these common areas have been used for praying spaces, it has given the Muslim community greater flexibility to perform these special prayers—especially those living far away from the nearest mosque.
Venue: Multi-purpose hall, Block 775A Bedok Reservoir View.
