Completed and launched in 1987, the mosque serves residents in Yishun New Town. When the idea to build the mosque was first mooted in the 1980s, several names for the new mosque were suggested such as AI-Jannah, AI-Makmur, Assobirin, Faisah, AI-Bilal, AI-Muaasim, Aminin, AI-Syuhadah dan AI-Araf. Finally, the Fatwa Committee of Muis chose Darul Makmur as the name of the new mosque in Yishun. Today the mosque organise various religious classes and key Islamic activities such as korban.
On Sundays after maghrib prayers, former mufti Ustaz Dr Fatris Bakaram leads his Al-Quran tafsir sessions at this mosque.
