Members of Hobart's Muslim community have described Tasmania as a haven of tolerance and acceptance.

Hobart's first mosque was officially opened yesterday and the Islamic Centre Trust has praised the city council and residents of west Hobart for their cooperation during the planning process.

Trust chairman Abdul Hanan Haroon says the building is a vote of confidence in the state.

"The Muslim community regard Tasmania as a haven of peace, tolerance and acceptance in an increasingly troubled world," he said.

"I believe that Tasmania is a model for successful multicultural and multi-faith society. This is because people in Tasmania have the respect for the rights of others and are accepting of difference
