.: Masjid Abdul Rahman Bin Auf :.

Jalan Puchong.

With the exception of Fridays, this beloved mosque is where I go to perform my Zuhr prayers as well as implore to Allah S.W.T when things get a little too heavy for me. A place to reflect the life I am graciously provided with, and be gratified with it. The women's area is separated using removable partitions at the back of the mosque, and the ablution area is extremely spacious with curtains to separate the chambers.

Sekolah Agama Al-Ihsan [Al-Ihsan Religious School] :: This Islamic religious school is situated adjacent to the mosque. On my way back, give or take a quarter to 2pm, the students aged 7 - 12 will begin to gather at the entrance or inside the mosque's compounds before proceeding to the school. They like to run around the compounds, playing hide-and-seek with one another. A great deal of all this reminded me of my time years ago, back in the south.

Memories flooding in.

I really like that there is ample room for the women here. It seems relaxed and sounds like there's no such thing as being elbow to elbow during the khutba. The men's are and the architecture there is just beautiful. And I love the kids school. It is so cute, and looks so inviting. What a beautiful place you live in sister. I can see how you would love going to this masjid to just be. Love you dearly.

Considering that not many people attend the mosque during the day, I have yet to experience the elbow to elbow moments. The place really is surreal, and hearing the muezzin's clear call of prayers; athan is purely remarkable. May you have the opportunity to experience this too love. :)

What a marvelous place to worship and make dhik'r and just momentarily forget about the chaotic world.
