This Muslim food stall near the masjid is open on weekdays only.


Masjid Ban Thuek Din, Khao San.


It's pretty difficult to get to this masjid as it's located in a small alley in the midst of cramped houses. Look for the Ratchadamnoen Post Office and it's in the small lane right after the post office as in the photo below. The signage at the entrance of the lane is in Thai only.

Waalaikum assalam. Iam going to stay in Windsor Suite near Sukhumvit 20, I would like to perform tarawikh prayers during my stay in Bangkok, I wonder if you can indicate the nearest mosque or musholla for this prayers.

LYNN said...

The nearest would be one of the three masjids at Nana Soi 3/1. The nearest BTS Station is Nana BTS Station, but the fastest way to get there is just take the motorcycle taxi (the guys with orange jackets on). It may cost you about THB40 but you'll get there much faster than taking the cab. Tell the rider to go to Foodland, Nana. Just a little further down is a 7-Eleven on your left. Walk in the little lane at 7-Eleven and you'll get to Soi 3/1. In front of you is Nefertiti Egyptian restaurant.
-Turn left and immediate right and walk for about 10-15m and you'll see the Nana Mosque signage on a wall on your left.
-Turn right to go to Shahrazad. It's on your left.
-If you go further up, passing Shahrazad and turn in the lane on your right, you'll find the other masjid on the first floor of Sahara Hotel, on your left.

It's very common to have iftaar at masjids in Bangkok. You can go for iftaar and stay up till tarawikh.

Inshan said...

Assalam wu alaikum.
I am am America and am looking to marry my fiance in a Muslim ceremony and would like to know which mosque is more English Friendly. This is important for the conversion and the nikka itself.
If you can help, it would mean so much.

Ahmad Suhaimi said...

Thank you Lynn

I manage to get to Masjid Nana tonight for isya' and tarawikh. I must admit that if I am the driver, I will have gone into the wrong junctions many times but that Soi 3/1 saves me and of course those few I enquired in the area. The masjid is in an apartment building and surrounded by them, two storeys, one for the ladies. The sign is actually on the door of the masjid. Thanks again anyway. The tarawikh is just like in Masjidil Haram, except for only 8 rakaats and the short talk (in Arabic) after the 4th and the doa during qunut in witr. The masjid was full!! And international, I saw a couple of locals only. I even walk back to the hotel.
May God bless you with the effort.

LYNN said...

Wa'alaikum slam wbt Inshan.
I suggest you visit the Foundation of Islamic Centre of Thailand on Ramkhamhaeng Road Soi 3 to obtain further info. Besides that you could also enquire at Masjid Mirasudeen on Silom Soi 20 as there're many English speakers who frequent this masjid.
Good luck and share the outcome with me later, yeah.

Salamualaikum,

Masjid Haroon (Charoen krung 36) is English-friendly. The Imam has been invited to a couple of weddings and performed an English nikah.

Hanafi madhab mosques would be Thai-Pakistan friendship mosque, on Sri phraya road.
