  • Saya pernah ke sini, bersembahyang Hari Raya Idul Fitri.

    Yang menariknya, selepas acara sembahyang Hari Raya, ada pameran kecil tentang zakat, beberapa sukat dalam almari kaca dipertontonkan kepada orangramai. Selain itu, jemaah dijamu dengan bubur (dipanggil nasi air), kuih muih dan juadah-juadah yang sedap belaka, yang diberi percuma. Kantin masjid juga dibuka membolehkan sesiapa membeli makanan.

    Juga dalam perkarangan masjid, ada bazar yang menjual pakaian dan barang-barang lain.

    Saya merasa seronok dan gembira dapat datang ke tempat ini.
