NASHVILLE: Nashville’s Islamic community has a new mosque that has been 20 years in the making.

The Islamic Center hosted a grand opening for its new location in Bellevue.

The center bought land on Charlotte Pike in the mid-1990s. Mosque leaders have been planning this day for decades.

“Feeling the spirituality component, the community aspect, having members of the greater Nashville outside community celebrating this with us is very meaningful,” said Rashed Fakhruddin.

The mosque was also open for tours.

In addition to the mosque, the building also houses the Nashville International Academy, which serves students from PreK to eighth grades.
