First known as The Resource Centre on Islam (Al-Mawrid), it is the first centre of its kind in Singapore that brings together a collection of English reference materials on Islam under one roof. It was a joint collaboration between the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) and Muslim Converts' Association of Singapore (Darul Arqam Singapore). The centre brings within reach materials which are not easily found in bookstores and public libraries.
Renamed Al-Mawrid Resource Library, it holds more then 3000 books and resources in multiple languages such as English, Malay, Arabic and Tagalog languages, ranging from classical literature on subjects like Shari’ah (Islamic law), ‘Aqidah (belief system), early civilizations to contemporary discourses in economics, politics, social issues and many other disciplines in Islamic studies. Initially, Al-Mawrid was located within the Islamic education hub at Wisma Indah.
Currently, Al-Mawrid Resource Library is located at the Galaxy building @ 32 Onan Rd.
Al-Mawrid’s primary aim is to be a beacon for the Muslim community in Singapore to bring to the other communities and faiths closer towards a better understanding of Islam through published works of prominent writers.
