The mosque in Åkebergveien is the headquarters of World Islamic Mission, one of the biggest Muslim congregations in Norway. The mosque has room for about 700 people, and is one of the largest in Norway. When it opened in 1995, the Central Jam-e-Mosque was the first purpose-built mosque in Norway. The walls of the mosque are decorated with tiles from Iran and Spain, both on the inside and on the outside. Many tiles have calligrapic inscriptions from the Quran. The mosque also has Persian carpets and a Turkish chandelier in the main hall.
