Where would the largest concentration of muslims be located at in Virginia, what cities or towns? I may be relocating to the area (VA transfer) and looking for a mosque that is diversed and an area that is safe, but thriving.

Thanks,

There is currently a mosque in Chesterfield ( Directory of Area Mosques ). There are 3 centers planned/inprogress in Henrico County outside Richmond, check the link and speak with them directly for additional information.

Inshallah

My guess would be nova. It's population is so transient that it's bound to have tons. I grew up in southwest virginia and we had zero that I'm aware of, so I would probably avoid anything south/southwest of I64 but anything up towards DC should be good

oh....ok, theres 1. The OP was looking for the largest though...so 1 probably won't suffice. SWVA just doesn't have the migration that nova does and thats what it's going to take to find concentrations of muslims...migration from other places...not a lot of old virginian muslims around last I checked


I'd still look at NOVA.

IslamicValley - Search Mosques in VA
Blacksburg-Roanoke have a growing Muslim population probably due to Va Techs influence here. The rest of SwVa is not
as culturally diverse.
