Masjid Hj Mohd Salleh at Palmer Road

Here's a snapshot I took of inside Masjid Haji Mohd Salleh at Palmer Road, the one attached to the shrine of Habib Noh, the saint of Singapore. It is a small little hut of a mosque in the middle of the busy city area, but located slightly apart from the skyscrapers so that it remains serene and disconnected. A true oasis it is. When I was working in that area for a few years, I used to love to go there for 'asr prayer and stay on for maghrib before leaving for home. I feel I can leave all the hustle and stress behind me there when I pick up a Qur'an and just read it softly. I always found comfort and strength in this mosque.
