My partner & I could not ignore the beautiful floating white mosque which was on Perhentian Kecil Island. Hence, a day before checking-out & after our hiking adventure, we decided to pay a visit to the island. We took a water taxi across from Perhentian Besar Island & was charged RM15 per person.

The floating mosque was called “Ar-Rahman Mosque.” The late Dr Rahman saw that there was a need for a new mosque to be built in his hometown of Pulau Perhentian Kecil as the old one could no longer cater to the island’s growing population. Moreover, the island was one of the more popular island resorts in Malaysia known to both local & international tourists. Dr Rahman’s proposal to the then Chief Minister was approved as it would augur well with the tourism industry & construction began in 2011.

The cost of the floating mosque came to a whopping RM13.5 million. Part of its structure was built in the water to reduce the usage of land area, making it look like a floating mosque. This architectural design would certainly add to its uniqueness, drawing much attention & crowd from tourists. Also, the mosque would be equipped with the relevant facilities for the comfort of its Muslim worshippers.

When we arrived at the mosque, the 1st thing that we saw was its single minaret. The structure was built in the water. We also had the opportunity to see one of the prayer halls which was in an open area. Its tiled floor had an Islamic motif. There was also a kitchen with workers. We had to go through the kitchen in order to sit at a staircase leading to the open sea.

We were happy to witness that the mosque was widely used by the community. Dr Rahman would have been very proud to know that his legacy had brought much joy & benefit to the islanders.

A white-coloured mosque with elegant architecture, blue sea front and green forest back. It is situated at the village facing the East of Perhentian Kecil Island, and can be seen throughout the west coast of Perhentian Besar Island. Indeed a symbol of the Perhentian Islands.

Good to know that there is a mosque in the Island and it is grand. Nice to take picture. I just wish that the other tourists would respect other religion in terms of the beliefs like please wear appropriate clothes when you are planning to visit fishermans village. And personally the mosque is not a tourist area but a place where our brother and sisters pray we should respect that.

If you are in the village the mosque is worth a visit. You do not see many mosques that are set up for people arriving by boat

This impressive Mosque which has unusual architecture which looks like glass is located on Pulau Perhentian Kecil by the fisherman's village which overlooks the ocean is a place of prayers for the locals. Busy during the Friday prayers.
