Summary
Article summary: 
Religious weekly ‘Aqīdatī says in a page one report that it has learned from its sources in the Azhar that the preliminary makeup of the proposed "Family Home," which intends to serve as a joint mouthpiece for the Azhar and the church, includes few Azhar scholars.
 
Ninety percent of the proposed members are public figures and civil society members who would, according to the report, “find it difficult to blend with the Azhar, and who have customarily attacked it and its scholars.”
 
Dr. Mahmūd Hamdī Zaqzūq, Egypt's Minister of Endowments, is expected to head the Family Home.
