“We live in a world today in which religion has become the focus and the core of discussion. Interfaith work is very important to me because I want to see how people utilize their faith and their belief system in advancing the human project — that is, helping humankind.”

Imam Mohamed Magid is president of the Islamic Society of North America and imam of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society. As a religious leader, he has stressed the importance of public service and interfaith collaboration in addressing the challenges faced by Muslim Americans in the wake of September 11.
