Built on a 6-acre land in Samarahan – the district of higher-learning institution – Masjid Al-Muttaqin was built between 1999 and 2000. It was officiated by Sarawak Chief Minister, Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Dr. Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud, in August 2001.
The mosque features a contemporary architecture mixed with some traditional elements. Built out of steel and glass, it is the first structure in the district to employ the tensile membrane technology. Its dome sits in an elevated crown of interlocking frames in the shape of a pentagon, forming the focal point in the building’s design.
Masjid Al-Muttaqin’s main prayer hall can fit up to 1,500 worshippers. The mosque also has a mini library and regularly provides religious classes.
