The Kadi of Pontian, Assyeikh Tn Hj Taufik bin Dato’ Kiyai Hj Shamsuddin, who represented Majlis Agama Islam Johor (MAIJ), accepted the mock board from Malakoff‘s representative, En Abdul Halim Adnan, T4 Plant Manager, to symbolise the handover of the mosque. The mock board was then handed over to the Chairman of Masjid Al Amin, Tn Hj Abd Hafidz bin Hj A Rahman to officiate the handover of the responsibility to manage the mosque from MAIJ to the mosque’s committee.
Malakoff contributed RM2.4 million towards the construction of the mosque located near Malakoff-owned Tanjung Bin Power Plant that can accommodate 500 congregations at one time. The new mosque provides a more comfortable and conducive environment for the local community to perform their prayers and other religious activities.
