Former church in Hamburg, Germany, turn into mosque
In a ceremony a mosque will be inaugurated in a building in Hamburg, Germany, that was used as a church for years. The project is now over after years and spending of some ۵ million euros.

Hawzah News Agency (Hamburg, Germany) - After years of renovations, the building, now known as An-Noor Mosque, will start serving Muslim worshipers on Wednesday.

The project to convert the building into a mosque that began in 2013 has been controversial.



The building was used by Christians as the Capernaum Church until it was sold to An-Noor Islamic Center due to financial problems.

There was some opposition from the people in Horn, the working-class district of Hamburg where the church has stood since 1961.



However, most people have been supporting the Muslim community's right to have a place of worship and the project is now over after years and spending of some 5 million euros.
