Share a hearty meal with new and old friends at the Mosques
All Mosques in Singapore provide free food for its visitors during Iftar in the spirit of giving. Iftar is an event observed at Maghrib (Sundown) when Muslims break fast. Timing varies, and one can refer to Singapore Islamic Prayer Times for an accurate update.
Food is usually served on a big plate good for six to share, this encourages sharing and provides an opportunity for strangers and friends to get to know one another. Biryani, porridge, dates, fruits, tea and water are some of the many kinds of food served at the mosques.
Below are some of the photos taken at Masjid Al-Falah by their Islamic Learning & Information Centre.
Non-Muslims are not obligated to do or follow the Muslims in any of their prayers and are free to just sit around and experience the atmosphere but are required to be appropriately dressed and for ladies, they are encouraged to be fully covered as they are entering a religious site. Jubahs are readily available for ladies at some mosques to change into in the event one might come unprepared. As for the appropriate dress code, a good gauge would be for one to be fully covered from shoulder to ankles. One would also be required to remove their footwear at the entrance of the mosque before entering.
