To show their appreciation, he said the people had to fully utilise facilities at the mosques.

Tunku Ibrahim said in his speech while launching the RM1.3mil Masjid Ungku Ahmad in Kampung Separap, Parit Sulong, near here recently that there were more than 800 mosques in the state.

Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman, said the state government had spent RM150mil to build 83 mosques from 1996 to 2007.

“Another 30 mosques are being built this year with a cost of RM40mil,” he said.

Abdul Ghani urged the mosque committees to organise more activities for the people.

Keunikan 'Masjid Besi'

Oleh NURUL IZZA ROSLY
[email protected]



'MASJID BESI' yang tinggal kira-kira 20 peratus sahaja kerja-kerja pembinaannya bakal menjadi ikon baru Pusat Pentadbiran Kerajaan Pusat di Putrajaya.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PUTRAJAYA - Menjelang penghujung tahun ini, warga Putrajaya khasnya dan Malaysia umumnya dapat melihat sebuah seni bina unik yang belum pernah diaplikasikan di mana-mana bangunan di negara pada ketika ini.

Mungkin ramai yang pernah mendengar nama 'Masjid Besi' yang sedang rancak pembinaannya di Presint 3, berhampiran Tasik Putrajaya, namun bagi yang belum mengetahui mengenainya, pastinya tertanya-tanya mengapa ia digelar sedemikian.

Walaupun belum ada nama rasmi untuk masjid ini diberikan, namun panggilan jolokan itu yang diberikan oleh kebanyakan warga Putrajaya menjadikan ia popular sehingga ramai yang ternanti-nanti bagaimana 'wajah' masjid itu yang bakal melengkapkan landskap Pusat Pentadbiran Kerajaan Persekutuan kelak.



RUANG solat memperlihatkan tiang-tiang besi keluli adalah sokongan utama binaan masjid manakala kubah disiapkan sepenuhnya menggunakan kepingan keluli tahan karat.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Binaan itu mendapat panggilan itu ekoran binaannya terdiri daripada 70 peratus besi keluli (6,000 tan), manakala selebihnya adalah konkrit yang menelan belanja sebanyak RM180 juta.

Menurut Pengarah Jabatan Pembangunan Bandar Perbadanan Putrajaya, Ir. Mohd. Ridzwan K. Othman, (gambar) selain dibina dengan 70 peratus besi keluli, binaan masjid tersebut tidak akan mempunyai dinding seperti bangunan konvensional lain.

"Ia digantikan dengan Mashrabiah yang diperbuat dengan anyaman besi tahan karat yang mempunyai ciri telus cahaya, dengan cahaya dan angin boleh menembusi anyaman besi untuk memberikan keselesaan kepada pengguna.

"Masjid ini tidak akan dilengkapi dengan sebuah kipas pun dan bagi memberikan keselesaan kepada pengunjung, sistem pengudaraan udara sejuk atau gas district cooling (GDC) akan digunakan di dalam bangunan masjid bagi menggantikan sistem penghawa dingin," katanya ketika ditemui Kosmo! kelmarin.

Tambahnya, pembinaan masjid yang kini pada peringkat 81 peratus siap itu mula dibina pada Mac 2004 boleh memuatkan sehingga 20,000 jemaah pada satu-satu masa,




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Keluasan keseluruhan masjid itu mencecah sehingga 73,800 meter persegi, ujarnya.

Jelasnya, apabila siap kelak, pengunjung akan menuju ke masjid melalui sebuah jejantas yang dikenali sebagai Kiblat Walk berkeluasan 13,640 meter persegi yang menghubungkan Dataran Putrajaya dengan masjid.

Tambah Mohd. Ridzwan, kawasan itu dihiasi dengan kolam air dan suasananya seperti berada di kota istana purba al-Hambra di Sepanyol.

"Selepas itu, pengunjung akan melalui Iwan Utama yang terdapat kaligrafi nama-nama Allah di kiri kanan dinding dan seterusnya melalui ruang Sahn sebelum sampai ke ruang solat utama.

"Ketika berada di ruang solat utama, pengunjung dapat melihat dinding mihrab yang diukir dengan tulisan ayat-ayat al-Quran pada panel kaca yang diimport khas dari Jerman," katanya.

Masjid Jamek, Johor’s most active mosque
THE Masjid Jamek Bandar Baru Uda Johor Baru is a model “Masjid Hadhari” (modern mosque).

CONGRATULATIONS: Suliman Sujak (right), the mosque’s chairman, receiving Johor’s most active mosque award from Menteri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman.


HEALTH SCREENING: Members of the Senior Citizens’ Club undergoing medical check-ups at the mosque.
This was acknowledged by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi during his visit to the mosque last month.

The mosque is also Johor’s most active mosque and this was endorsed by the state government earlier this year.

Zahid was given a tour of the mosque facilities, which has a dialysis unit and a recycling centre. The mosque also has a support group, a senior citizens’ club and a women’s affairs committee.


Zahid was impressed with the mosque set-up, adding that he would propose that mosques in Kuala Lumpur be modelled after Masjid Jamek.

Hussein Ismail, the working committee treasurer, said the mosque was able to incorporate the “Hadhari” concept because of its commitment and cooperation among the neighbourhood’s 6,000 families.

He said about 35 per cent of the RM4.2 million to build the mosque came through collections from Bandar Baru Uda residents.

Each family donated RM10 monthly over three years.

Among the long-term plans of the mosque are to set up a consultation institute and a welfare fund for the community.

The fund, Dana Kebajikan Masyarakat Islam (KAMI), is to help needy pupils and students of SK Uda 2, SK Kompleks Uda, Sekolah Agama Uda and SMK Bandar Baru Uda.

“Besides religious and spiritual activities, we also organise programmes to foster integration. For instance, the youth and education bureau recently organised a futsal competition and an education seminar.

“We also have programmes for the young ones, such as drawing and water colouring contests, nasyid, reading and oratory competitions. In early July, we organised a ‘I love Solat’ contest which attracted 250 participants aged from 8 to 12,” he said.

The mosque also receives local and foreign visitors who wish to learn about its administration.

Among the dignitaries who have visited the mosque were the Sultan of Johor and the Tunku Mahkota of Johor and Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. Foreign visitors include religious department officials and activists from Brunei, Thailand, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia.

Two voluntary groups — the Kelab Warga Emas (Senior Citizens’ Club) and Kumpulan Sukarelawan (Volunteer Group) — assist in the running of the mosque committee.

The group’s members include pensioners, government servants and businessmen.

The Kelab Warga Emas, with a membership of more than 350, organises tai-chi classes weekly, annual medical check-ups, health seminars and holiday packages. The Kumpulan Sukarelawan on the other hand, pays courtesy calls to the elderly, needy and the sick in the neighbourhood.

New mosque
Friday August 8, 2008
TheStar

THE Sungai Pinang Jamek Mosque in Penang was rebuilt at a cost of RM1.6mil to accommodate the growing population at Sungai Pinang.

The mosque’s qariah committee chairman Ab. Shukor Ab. Karim said the mosque could now accommodate 1,000 worshippers, more than half than before.

He said the original mosque, built in 1968, was demolished and construction of the new mosque began in 2004.

”The new mosque was completed in 2006 to accommodate the growing population here,’’ he said in his speech at the opening ceremony of the mosque by the Yang di-Pertua Negri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas recently.

The congregation later performed Friday prayers.

Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Mosque)was officially opened on February 2nd, 2000 following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status. It is the second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu, located at Likas Bay, about 10 - 15 minutes drive on the coastal highway.

Built with impressive and marvelous architecture closely and immaculately resembles the design of the Masjid al-Nabawi (The Prophet´s Mosque) in Medina, Saudi Arabia. The City Mosque was built on a man-made lagoon, which created an impression to be floating above water, a fine reason in bringing this landmark to be one of the City's main tourism attraction.

Beachfront Mosque Set To Be Tourist Draw
August 15, 2008 10:21 AM
By Nashir Mansor

TAWAU, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Not many people, including the residents here, know that Tawau�s Al-Kauthar Mosque is the largest in Sabah and may rank as among the biggest in the country.

What ever it is, the mosque in its own right is rather unique due to its vicinity to commercial centres and a public transport terminal.

Among the buildings in the mosque locality are the district public library and the Federal House that has the offices of various government agencies.

The mosque sits along the beachfront that has a popular recreational stretch known as the Traulsen Drive.

The sight from within the mosque itself is something to behold, as one is able to witness the merchant ships and fishing boats that sail in the Cowie Straits.

From the mosque, one has a clear sight of Pulau Sebatik, an island divided between Malaysia and Indonesia.

YANG DI PERTUAN AGONG

Construction of the RM31.5 million Al-Kauthar Mosque began on June 19, 1997.

The mosque was fully completed in October 2002 and the structure was officially opened by the then Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail on Aug 13, 2004.

The mosque has a dome that measures 20 metres in circumference as well as a minaret that stands 58 metres metres high.

Surrounded by lush greenery which include flowering plants, giving it a touch of radiance, the mosque can accommodate a congregation of up to 17,000 people at any particular time.

In the evenings, several eagles can be seen circling high above the mosque before making their descent onto the mosque's dome.

The raptors appear to be involved in a dogfight trying to get a grip on the domes crescent and star-shaped structures.

SEMINAR FACILITIES

The Al-Kauthar Mosque also boasts of having facilities for conducting seminars apart from being equipped with an administration office, library and outlet for the sale of religious paraphernalia.

Its strategic location provides a short and easy route for Muslims from nearby business complexes and offices as well as those on leisure visits to the beach to reach it to perform their religious obligations.

TOURISM ASSET?

Looking at the buildings standing as the largest mosque in Sabah and among the biggest in Malaysia, Al-Kauthar Mosque has the potential of being turned into a tourist draw for the district.

What is needed to make this a reality is a concerted effort by the state government and religious authorities as well as the mosque management and travel agents to promote Al-Kauthar Mosque as a tourist draw.

The State Legislative Assembly Representative for Tanjung Batu, Datuk Hamisah Samad, said the mosque is suitable to be developed into a tourist attraction for Tawau.

"As a resident of Tawau, I welcome any move to turn Al-Kauthar Mosque into one of Tawaus tourism products", Hamisah told Bernama here recently.

She said for this to materialise, several aspects like the mosques surrounding landscape should be improved for the sake of the visiting tourists.

Tawau is the gateway for air travellers to the tourism haven of Semporna, located some 30 km away.
