A sheikh is a leader of a community, village, town or a tribe. An imam is a leader of a mosque.
They are influential people in their communities and normally have much spiritual power and control over people.
We often read of sheikhs and imams that become Jesus followers – sometimes secretly – and start to radically preach the gospel with great effect.
- For more sheikhs and imams to meet with Jesus, especially the radical Islamic ones.
- That they will, with equal fervour, proclaim Christ as the only Saviour.
