[UPDATED 21 July 2021 - Please refer to this article to find out which public musollahs are open for prayer at the moment! 😊] In Singapore, we're blessed to have so many beautiful mosques across the country. But with the recent closure of mosques in Singapore due to the COVID-19 outbreak, you might just be wondering where you can pray! P.S. Check out these 5 du'as that every Muslim needs for well-being and protection during this uncertain period.  Credit: Giphy To help you out, we've rounded up this list of prayer spaces (or musollah) in Singapore other than mosques so you can still perform your prayers if you're out and about. Whether you're in the touristy areas like Bugis and Orchard or in the heartlands, we've got you covered! Note regarding the COVID-19 situation: In the prayer spots listed below, we've indicated if there are prayer mats, garments and an ablution area. But when visiting these spots during this period, we strongly urge that you bring your own prayer mats and garments to avoid indirect contact with others. If you really have no choice and need to use the communal prayer mats, we recommend using a disinfectant to sanitise the mats before and after you pray. Some of these prayer spaces are also really small so we urge that you keep a safe distance from other Muslims by waiting for your turn and not performing congregational prayers as much as possible. Disclaimer: Do note that some of these prayer rooms might be closed due to the COVID-19 situation. It's best to keep yourself updated with the situation on social media or check with the relevant authorities before your head to any of the prayer rooms.

36 Spots for Prayer in Singapore (Other than Mosques)

Marina Bay/City Hall:

1. Marina Square

The musollah at Marina Square is situated at the Basement 1 Carpark. Look out for the escalator between Coffee Bean and 4Fingers, and take the escalator to the basement level. You should find yourself in the carpark’s Green Zone. Exit the sliding doors and turn left at the pillar marked 'AA3'. Walk ahead a bit more, where you'll find the musollah near lot 67. Ablution can be taken outside the musollah (open ablution area) or at the nearest toilet located on levels B1 and 1 for men and women respectively. Prayer Mats: Available Prayer Garments: Available Ablution area: Available  Separate areas for men and women:  Yes Opening Hours: The musollah should be accessible 24/7 daily (carpark opening hours) but we recommend visiting during mall opening hours.

Look out for the hallway between Warehouse and Dorothy Perkins and walk down the hallway towards the doors. There are signs to dictate the spaces by gender, and prayer mats and garments are also available. The spaces are quite small (only about 3 people can fit into it at one time!) but it's a convenient stop to note down 😊 #HHWT Tip: Ladies, you'll find a foldable mirror in a white cabinet at the doorway of the women's musollah.

We recently discovered this prayer room opened by Noah Travel & Tours a few days after Singapore announced that all mosques would be closed due to COVID-19. The good thing is that it's located very near to Masjid Sultan (just less than 5-minutes' walk away) so this can be an alternative space to pray if you're in the area! Though prayer mats are available, the travel agency has urged all visitors to bring their own prayer mats and to not pray in congregation. Not to mention that there are disinfectants, masks and a hand sanitiser too. Read our article to find out more!
