An imam shocked his community when he announced that he was resigning from and moving to a drier climate.
Afterwards, a very distraught lady came to the imam with tears in her eyes, "Oh, imam, we are going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!"
The kind-hearted imam said, "Now, now, sister, don't carry on. The imam who takes my place might be even better than me."
"Yeah," she replied, with a tone of disappointment in her voice, "that's what the last imam said, too."
