One of the acts of worship that we all look forward to in Ramadan is the Terawih prayer. The Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. said:
مَنْ قَامَ رَمَضَانَ إِيْمَانًا وَاحْتِسَابًا غُفِرَ لَهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِنْ ذَنْبِهِ
“Whoever prays during the night of Ramadan with īmān (faith) and in hopes of rewards (from Allah), his past sins will be forgiven for him.”
(Sahih Al-Bukhārī & Muslim)
Alhamdulillah, 66 mosques will be conducting Terawih prayer, after the congregational Isyak prayer, which will commence at 8.45 pm.
Unlike last year, when Muis opened booking windows for three sets of ten days, this year, you may book for all the days in Ramadan, as long as slots are still available.
If you wish to perform their prayers at the mosque, do book a slot through https://ourmosques.commonspaces.sg or the online booking platform on the Muslim.SG app.
Dedicated spaces for Muslimah are available at all mosques. Kindly ensure to choose the correct zone during the booking so that all congregants may get a slot.
Every congregant, including children, is required to have a unique email address and contact number when making a booking for identification and confirmation purposes.
Do confirm your bookings and retrieve them via the booking confirmation page here: https://ourmosques.commonspaces.sg/check-booking. You can take a screenshot of the page as proof of entry at the mosque.
If you have booked and are not able to go to the mosque, you can also cancel your booking before the start of the prayer session via the same link.

In sya Allah, we will be able to perform at least one Terawih prayer at the mosque this Ramadan. However, if we are unable to pray at a mosque, let’s not be too sad. Narrated in a hadith, our Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. said,
"Actions are (judged) by intentions (niyyah), so each man will receive what he has intended for.”
[Bukhari & Muslim]
With the intention that we have in our hearts to perform Ibadah at the mosque, Insya’Allah, we will still be getting the rewards.
