I was born on the outskirts of Frankfurt and then studied for two years in elementary school in Germany. Then, for health reasons, I had to spend five years in Morocco, then I lived with my grandfather there, while my family stayed in Germany, I studied at the Moroccan school, and I returned to Germany I completed my studies and worked in the field of commerce and economy and was a quality manager at Frankfurt Airport for more than 15 years. At that time, I worked voluntarily in Islamic work in mosques, and rose in responsibilities in mosques and associations, until I reached the Supreme Council of Muslims, and established the first branch of my allegiance to this institution. In the "Assen" region in the Frankfurt region, then I was elected the first regional official of the Supreme Council of Muslims in this region, and then I was elected Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Muslims in Germany as a whole, and he worked in this position for more than 4 years. I am married and have four sons, two sons and two daughters, and I consider this honor to work in the Islamic institution an opportunity to strive for the service of our religion and our country at the same time with all the challenges that exist in this work. Do you occupy the position of Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Muslims in Germany, if you would be kind enough to inform us about the legal and religious nature of this body, and what are its specific tasks? The Supreme Council of Muslims, in which I held the position of Secretary-General, is a representative, framing and coordinating institution for Muslims in Germany. And we cooperate with them, because the role of the mosque institution, and through it the Islamic centers in Germany, has constitutional roles. The German constitution recognizes a kind of partnership between state institutions and religious institutions. We also work on framing Muslims’ affairs through a council among scholars that answers immediate or posed questions. It is one of the developments that a Muslim needs, and we do a kind of guidance and framing for Muslims, and there is a kind of representation. We represent all Muslims before the media and governments, and we try through this framework to be the representative institution for Muslims. The Supreme Council of Muslims is one of the most active Islamic institutions in Germany. It is a completely independent institution, a German institution with distinction. Our internal and communicative language is German, and we proceed in our knowledge from the standpoint of comprehensive citizenship. We consider ourselves Germans with full citizenship and rights and we have full duties, our members are from origins and backgrounds Different denominational and linguistic, with us are Muslims from East Asia, North Africa, Arabs, non-Arabs, Germans, from Bosnian countries, for example, Macedonia, Kurds and others. and possibilities.
