Given the complex and dynamic challenges that Islam and Muslims are facing today, imams are supposed to be most active in finding solutions to multiple problems – both social and intellectual. If they are involved in intellectual pursuits and knowledge creation and dissemination, their khutbahs will likely be rich in content and relevant to contemporary life. Masjids are central to Muslim societies; therefore, vibrant Muslim communities cannot be envisioned without intellectually competent imams whose khutbahs should be a reflection of their scholarly rigour and multi-dimensional knowledge. In facilitating this to happen, the role of masjid management committee members is crucial, but that is a subject for another discussion.
