Masjid Al-Abrar (Al-Abrar Mosque) is one of the earliest mosques in Singapore, and is located along Telok Ayer Street. In 1829, the congregation of the mosque was granted a 999-year lease for the land on which the mosque stood. Masjid Al-Abrar occupies the width of three shophouse fronts but with no five-foot way, the mosque was aligned with the street grid while also oriented towards Mecca. Inside, the mosque is essentially a one-storey prayer hall. It is Indian-Islamic in style; much simpler than its earlier counterparts in Singapore. The four minaret-like towers that define the narrow frontage are devoid of decorative elements, except for a small onion dome on the top of each tower. The mosque remained in this form for over a century, with only minor repairs from the 1950s to the mid-1980s. But in 1986 and again in 1989, major renovations were carried out, transforming the old mosque.
