Let me also explain that in Islam, the role of an Imam is not limited to the domain of faith. It also includes a deep engagement in the world, in all of the wide and complex issues that affect our quality of life

I SEEK REFUGE IN ALLAH
FROM THE ACCURSED SATAN
IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE BENEFICENT, THE MERCIFUL
Praise be to Allāh, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds; the All-Merciful, the
All- Compassionate, Master of the Day of Judgment. You alone we worship and to
You alone we pray for succour. Guide us to the Straight Path, the path of those
upon whom You have bestowed Your grace; not of the ones who have incurred
your wrath, nor those who go astray. (1:1-7)
