Tradisi membina legasi

A Tradition of Building Legacies

In 1873, Wak Tanjong, a trader and philanthropist, created a Wakaf by donating a piece of land at Kampong Wak Tanjong along Paya Lebar Road for the purpose of building a mosque. According to his great-great-grandson, Ustaz Mohammed Noor Taib (founder and then principal of Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah), Wak Tanjong had initially built a wooden mosque on the land. The current Masjid Wak Tanjong, with a blend of Anglo-Indian bungalow architecture and Malay kampong typology, was believed to be built in 1933. 

In 1972, the mosque was expanded and later underwent a series of upgrading works in the late 1970s, 1990s, and the latest in 2018, with support from the Mosque Building and Mendaki Fund (MBMF)—a community Wakaf contributed by all Muslim employees in Singapore. Thanks to this community contribution, the mosque was given a breath of new life with a fresh coat of paint and is now family-, disabled- and elderly-friendly with lift, nursing room and ramp access.
