General Information

In the mid-1970s, there were very few Muslims in Nashville. Only a handful used to offer Jumu’a prayer (weekly Friday congregation) at the Afro House (now known as the Black Cultural Center) of Vanderbilt University. As time progressed, attendance in Jumu’a prayer gradually grew from 5 to 40 by 1979. At that time, the Nashville Muslims got together and organized themselves for the first time, paving the way for the formal emergence of the Islamic Center of Nashville (ICN).
