I would appeal to my brother Imams on this special occasion that they should endure to propagate b a sic tenets of Is l am in such a manner that the people
may understand and appreciate that this catego ry of persons has a vital role to play in solving the problems of Muslims. I would fur ther appeal to them and emphasize that they must play a more effective and pivotal role
in the accomplishment of these objectives and render proper guidance to the Muslim Community in matters of Sharia h (the Law, including both the teachings of Quran and of the traditional sayings of prophet Mohammed. (Peace
be upon him). I would pray to Almighty Allah that He may bestow upon us with proper strength and capability to do justice to the office of Imams (Ameen).
Humble Servant of the people, MOULANA JAMEEL AHMED ILYASI
