Ask The Imam Question and Answer

628 Could you please let me know what the role of the Imam is in the mosque and the community?
Generally the role of the Imam is a vast one and the duties vary from Masjid to Masjid.

In generalising we would say that the main duties include leading five times pray in congregation within the confines of the Mosque, teach Arabic and Islamic studies to children and Adults alike, offer Islamic advice when needed and partake in the day to day running of the Masjid. He should be a role model within the community.

(Please also refer to Question 427 which refers to the Imam in Namaz)
