What you'll do

This trip is ideal for those who want to sight the cross culture of Chinese and Muslim in Malaysia. The Muhammadiah Mosque in Tasek Jaya, Ipoh, is said to be Malaysia's first Chinese-Muslim mosque with a 100% Chinese architectural design. Its significant roof is imported from Longyan in China and at a first glance people may mistaken the mosque for a Chinese temple. Join me as we discover the intriguing history of how this mosque was revived by the Chinese Community to be one of their icons in Ipoh. Be prepared to be mesmerized by the intricate beauty of its interior decor and I will organise for you to specifically try out some of the social activities carried out by the Chinese-muslim congregation of the mosque. I will also demonstrate a rhythmic Holy Quran read-out session specially for you.

I am a mosque tour guide certified by ABIM, a well-established Islamic institution and have been attached to many mosques for the Mosque Tour Guide Program in our local community. For the past 5 years I have been sharing my professional knowledge on the architecture and history of Ipoh's mosques to guests from France, England, China, Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Japan, etc. Being a Chinese Muslim myself with vast experience in this field, I'm enthusiastic and excited to host anyone who wishes to see the beauty and culture diversity of the mosque here in Ipoh.

Where you'll be

We will first have a short briefing on learning the basic do's and don'ts and then we will proceed to the foyer where we will be provided with robes by the mosque's manager. Then I will take you around the perimeter including the ablution area where we will perform together the ablution process before entering the mosque. Inside you will be taken to the main prayer hall where you will witness the call-to-pray hailing and congregated prayers.
