Are you an imam or do you know one well? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Working closely with Masaajid and council of mosques around Britain we are compiling an anonymised national research of imams and invite you to complete a simple survey which should take no more than 5 minutes: https://cardiff.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/british-imams
What is the study about?
Imams play a significant role in Muslim communities, yet relatively little academic research has emerged about them. This project seeks to understand more about imams and their day-to-day work. We are doing this by speaking to different imams across the country and to other people who work with them. As a result, we hope that wider society will gain a better appreciation of the role imams play in modern Britain.

The study is based at Cardiff University’s Centre for the Study of Islam in the UK. It is entirely funded by the Jameel Research Programme, a philanthropic organisation set up to improve understanding about Muslims in Britain. There are three researchers working on this project: Dr Riyaz Timol, Professor Sophie Gilliat-Ray and Maulana Dr Haroon Sidat.
