Masjid Wan Chik Ariffin (15 December 2008)



Masjid Wan Chik Ariffin, or Ariff Mosque (GPS: xxzz), is a Malay mosque at Kampung Dodol, off Jalan Perak. It was built by one of the successful Malay businessman of the early 20th century, Ariff Wan Chik Ariffin Mohamed, in memory of his father Mohamed Ariff Mohamed Tajoodin ((read also Hutton Lane, Ariffin Court, Ariffin Road and 138-hutton-lane), whose mansion is now the New Savoy Hotel opposite New World Park in Hutton Lane.

Although raised with an English education, Ariff Wan Chik became an alim, or authority in Islamic law. The land he donated to the Municipality of George Town were developed and the roads leading into them were named after him, namely Jalan Ariffin off Transfer Road and Halaman Ariffin off Burmah Road.
