Short BIO: Imam
For Sunni Muslims, an imam is an Islamic leadership position. Imams may lead Islamic worship services, serve as community leaders, and provide religious guidance.
For Shi’a Muslims, the imam has a more central meaning and role in Islam through the concept of Imamah; the term is only applicable to those members of the house of the prophet ahl al-Bayt, designated as infallibles.
