    it is not the imam who makes the call to prayer, but the Muezzin

    an Iman is the one who leads the prayer within the mosque, and is often considered the spiritual leader, even if not formally trained to the role but selected from the community

    a Muezzin is not considered a clerical person, nor a religious scholar, and the sole responsibility is to issue the call to prayer 5 times a day.

    Sala'am.

    do we still have a Republic and a Constitution if our elected officials will not stand up for them on our behalf?
