The Islamic Center of Tennessee (ICT) was established in 2010 with the goal of educating both the Muslim and non-Muslim communities in Middle Tennessee. Located in Antioch, a community southeast of Nashville, the Carmike Bell Forge Theater was purchased with money raised from the local community and transformed into the Islamic Center of Tennessee. Many of ICT’s founders are also active members of Muslim communities in Nashville and have tirelessly contributed to ICT. As the largest Islamic Center in Middle Tennessee, ICT strives to provide unprecedented and professional Islamic and educational services to its parishioners. As the newest and most diverse community in Nashville, ICT aims to unite Muslims upon the true teachings of tolerance and peace from the Qu’ran and Sunnah.

Black History Month: Standing up to Prejudice and Racism

Black History month is a time to learn about the struggles and achievement of African Americans, and their rich culture and contributions to human civilization. Black History month is also a time to reaffirm the struggle and determination to fight prejudice and racism. Today, we can see an across-the-board attack and lessening of civil rights and equal treatment for others rooted in Racism and Islamophobia. Given the climate, how do Islam and Muslims address these challenges? Islamic Center of Tennessee and Muslim Women's Council invites our neighbors and fellow Americans to come and join the Muslim community for a Black History program. The program starts with a mosque tour followed by a Friday sermon by our guest speaker from Chattanooga, Hammad Al Amin. This will be followed by traditional sweets and snacks served to guests. The event is children friendly, so feel free to bring your kids.
