Madrasathul Gouthiyyah Mosque


Hi friends.. Hope all are doing fine.. and Assalam Alaikum

Madrasathul Gouthyyah Surau, Brick Fields

In this post I want to share about the Surau/Mosque in Brickfields.  Madrasathul Gouthiyyah Mosque is recently constructed. It is walk able distance from nearby Palm Court Apartments. Imam is Indian. As this area dominated by Indians than local Malaysians, the main language for preaching is Tamil than Bahasa Maleyu.  This is a Madrasa (school) too where children can learn Al-Quran.  

 Few years back, there was a small surau in this place which is re-constructed to new Masjid.  As a remembrance of Imam Abdul Qadir Jilani, this mosque has named as “Gouthiyyah” which means “one who is helpful”. Birthday Celebrations of Imam Adbul Qadir Jilani takes place in this mosque. 

Interesting part of about this Mosque is, it follows Mazhab Hanafi where most of the Malaysians follow Mazhab Syafi ('i)  which is two different ways of Islam Tradition under Sunni Muslim. In this tradition, Asar prayer takes place around 5:30 pm where as in Mazhab Sufi, it is around 4:30 pm.

In the month of Ramadan, they distribute porridge prepared with rice and other ingredients which is distributed to everyone who breaks the fast. The porridge tastes really very good.  In Malay language it is called as bubur lambuk. During Ramadan, if anyone wants to distribute fruits, rice packets etc for devotees they can contact the management and can proceed.
