Prof. Dr. Ahmed Muhammad Ahmed El-Tayeb, The Grand Imam of Al-Azhar 

Ahmed Muhammad Ahmed el-Tayeb is the current Grand Imam of al-Azhar. Hardly one to be dismissed as a fanatic who is ignorant of the true tenets of Islam, Tayeb’s credentials and career are impressive: he holds a Ph. D in Islamic philosophy from the Paris-Sorbonne University; formerly served as Grand Imam of Egypt, meaning he was the supreme interpreter of Islamic law; formerly served for seven years as president of Al-Azhar University, considered the world’s leading institution of Islamic learning, and is currently its Grand Imam. A 2013 survey named Tayeb the “most influential Muslim in the world.”
