Our Journey & Background
ICWC was incorporated as a non-profit 501©(3) organization based in Brentwood, TN. For the last 4 years, ICWC has been serving the Muslim Community of Brentwood and surrounding areas with the sole of providing providing religious services based on the teachings of Qur'an and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (PBUH). We have been operating from a leased space in a strip mall. Some of the services provided are:
Daily Salah, Darul Eman Sunday Classes, Weekly Friday halaqas, Tajweed class for sisters, Friday and Taraweeh prayers, Periodic community social gatherings. Interfaith Dialogue.
There has been a substantial growth in the size of our community, worshippers attending daily prayers and children enrolled in the Sunday classes. A recent survey to the community proved the need for a larger permanent central facility in the neighborhood that would meet the needs of our Muslim community in Williamson County and nearby areas.
Alhamdulillah, on January 27, 2015, the board on behalf of ICWC signed a binding contract to purchase the property situated at 320 Mallory Station Road, Franklin TN 37067. The property is centrally located, with ease of access to I-65 and centralized to the community and surrounding areas. The purchase price is $1.525 million and the sale has to be CLOSED BY APRIL 10th.
Masjid will offer public worship facilities for the obligatory daily prayers as well as Friday and Taraweeh prayers. The masjid will also strive to play an important role in the development of spirituality and high moral standards in the community, which will Insha-Allah be achieved through a wide range of activities including educational classes, lectures, study circles, seminars and youth events, following the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah of our beloved prophet PBUH. We will also be dedicated to providing da’wah and information to the wider community about Islamic faith. Our doors will be open to all members of the community.
Building a Masjid & Sunday Classes in the heart of the community
Insha-Allah we hope ICWC will be a unique religious and educational center in Brentwood/Williamson County with the primary goals:
- Serving the community, thus increasing its understanding of Islam and provide a means through which believers can come closer to Allah SWT.
- Catering to the growing needs of the youth, who will be torch bearers of Islam in the years to come, to help them navigate through the challenges of the society and be good Muslims.
- Increasing awareness of Islam within the wider society, using the center through which non-Muslims can become better acquainted with the true teaching of Islam.
ICWC intends to put the Masjid firmly back to where it belongs, at the heart of the community. It is a vital project which aims to build bridges and advance the cause of Islam and humanity in general. It will include a prayer hall, community hall and classes.

How can you help?
Building a Masjid is a Sadaqah Jariah (a continuous charity). It is mentioned in a Shahih Hadith, that our beloved Prophet (SAW) said that,
“Whoever builds a masjid for Allah, Allah will build for them a Palace in Paradise” from Bukhari & Muslim.
If you believe as we do, that the heart of the community lies in the masjid, then please be generous in supporting us with your donations and duaa. We have 1/3 of the funds needed for the project, raised from membership fees, Ramadan fund raisings and Crowdrise. We will have some cost for change of use (TBD). InshaAllah our efforts are now focused on buying the building without the need for loans.
