Nashville's Islamic Center on 12th South received an anonymous message of love and support in the wake of turmoil and uncertainty following the election.

Messages of peace and support were written on the sidewalk next to the Islamic Center of Nashville.

Leaders and worshippers were surprised to find the messages written in chalk. They found out a woman named April began drawing a mural and more people added to it throughout the day.

"At a time where there's all these question marks, it meant a lot to us to reassure us that hey, we're all here as neighbors our diversity is a strength which makes us stronger in Nashville and in the United States," said Rashed Fakhruddin.

The Islamic Center of Nashville hosts classes throughout the year in an effort to educate the community about Islam.
