"Jamaah Tabligh chose to congregate in Jami Mosque in 1974. Here, they would carry out their devotional practices of preaching for a period ranging from three days to four months," said Koh Ali.
"They used to stay at the mosque and invite people around the world to carry out Islamic devotional practices, such as congregational prayers and maintaining the mosque. The growing congregation prompted the mosque to expand to its present form in 1997.
But regardless of changes to its form and congregation, the Jami Kebon Jeruk Mosque remains a hub for the community and spirit.
