When in doubt, I always find my wheels set to Jalan Cibulan, just nearby Jalan Wolter Monginsidi. By the way, it’s one of my favorite neighborhoods in Jakarta since not only that it’s leafy and you can easily find solace around there, but it’s also because it’s home to many interesting food scenes.
From Chinese food, lobster specialty, steaks, and coffee shops, you can easily find good eats around there. Ah anyway, you have to pardon me because I really like to talk about food on my other blog and you can read my stuffs there.
So back to this particular masjid. It becomes one of my good alternatives while I’m around the neighborhood, which is quite often. Although recently I found a more classic masjid just on a neighborhood beside this masjid, but still Masjid Nurul Hilal is quite easy to found, thanks to Iga Bakar Cibulan during my visit many months ago.
The masjid may not be quite small but I often get myself amazed whenever I came across a masjid which was originated from a waqf land. Can you imagine the value of jihad for somebody who wholeheartedly gave his land possession for a very good purpose like this? I really wish that one day I could become such person as well. Aamiin~
So again, if you’re around here after a good solid lunch, Masjid Nurul Hilal would be a perfect choice for zuhur prayer. Next, I’ll telling you another hidden masjid just nearby and I do really like it a lot! (RF)
