Kassim Slamat awarded Bawean Jasawan 2011

Siapa itu Kassim Slamat? Part 2 (Extracted from Hadijah Rahmat's The Last Kampung Mosque in Singapore. Some passages contained in Hadijah's book has been revised by M. Erwin).

Kassim Rahmat was born on 10 August 1934 at Block 62, Asiatic Workers Accommodation Quarters, (Naval Base) situated at Jalan Kedai. He was among the first generation of children born there. However, in 1951, his father passed away and his family had to resettle outside the Naval Base but were lucky to be allowed the continued use of the amenities at the Naval Base. Subsequently in 1960s, his family moved to Jalan Kerong between Andrews Avenue and Jalan Wak Hassan. Kassim Selamat did not receive any secular education but went to madrasah to receive religious education, but was unable to complete his education there.

At the age of 14, he applied for a job at the Naval Base. Knowing that the minimum age then was 16 years, he added two years to his age in his application. It was only after he was given the job he applied for, that he revealed his true age! Kassim Rahmat worked as a messenger/office boy from November 1948 to June 1951. From June 1951, he was transfered and worked as a trained fitter at H.M Dockyard, Naval Base. He was promoted to engine fitter in 1956 and continued in this position until November 1968. His duties included repairing engines of ships such as the Naval Frigate and Destroyer, and those of aircraft carriers, cargo ships and even submarines. After the Sembawang Shipyard took over from the Naval Base, he was promoted to Special Grade Fitter in 1976 and continued to work there until 1981. Besides an established career at the Naval Base, Kassim Rahmat also pursued his passion - singing. Today, already in his late 70s, Kassim is still passionate about singing. He still performs in public, entertaining the crowds at weddings, birthday functions and trade fairs. Kassim was also credited for participating in several fund raising events across the causeway i.e "Konsert Amal Tsunami 60an" (Tsunami 60's Charity Concert).
