In this Masjidology, i will review Masjid Al Fattah in Jatinegara Street of Jakarta, you can google the location here. I spent some quality time (15 minutes, tehee) in this masjid in late Ashr time.
We love this Masjid, it is exactly in the Jatinegara street, parking was easy though the space were rather limited, but that is probably because we did not come in the peak hours. I wonder how they would serve visitors during Jumah prayer.
But, worries NOT, they have BASEMENT.
I literally squeak, there are not so many masjid in Indonesia that are equipped with some decent basement! That is not all of the surprise, they also have ELEVATOR. What a treat!
This mosque has 3 storey, woman section is on the 2nd floor. To reach the woman section you could use stairs as well as the elevator.
The obligatory man’s section photos coming.
Now begin the most critical part of the review, cleanliness. I would give this masjid 3 star out of 5, simply because i am such a prick with my score, but hey, 4 out of 5 in my dictionary means superb.
Good Job, mosque cleaner staff! I will now virtually shake your hands respectfully.
Oh ow, but what is that under the bench? Please clean that, mosque cleaner staff.
The wudhu (ablution) areas is outdoor, so it is refreshing and windy when it is not raining. It is not big, though, so i imagine it will cramp a little during peak hours.
Masjid should have extensive facilities to meet our spoiled demands, they should air conditioned, have some nice soft carpets, ludicrous water fountain for wudhu, garden with goose and deers; but remember, program is what matters. People wants seminars, place where they could learn and grow spiritually.
Overall, i give this mosque a 4 star out of five.
