Our Mosque

“If soft water can wear away hard rock by its persistence during many years, surely I can overcome all my difficulties by perseverance and tolerance,” said Mohamed Alli Din, Chairman of the United Muslim Association of Hong Kong (UMAH).

The gifted virtues and wisdom from Almighty Allah and by steady and untiring work made him succeed in his mission in acquiring a piece of land in the New Territories where the first and only Mosque and Islamic Centre will be built for the Muslim Community after 156 years without a place of worship nearby.

Statistics reveal that there are 80,000 ethnic minority Muslims in Hong Kong but only 5 Mosques were built during the British Regime. Four Mosques can be found in Hong Kong Island and on in Kowloon Peninsula. Not one exists in the New Territories.

UMAH’s vision is history-in-the-making as it aspires to be the first Mosque and Islamic Centre to be built in the New Territories, and the first Mosque to be put up after the return of Hong Kong to China. And so the challenge begins.
