Dr. Abdel Mo’ti Bayoumi, member of our Board of Advisors, is no longer dean of the Faculty of Islamic Theology (’Usul el-Din) at the Azhar. He was dean from 1989 to 1991 and from 1997 to 2001. The two periods are a total of six years which is the maximum someone can be the dean of this college. Dr. Bayoumi is still a member of the Islamic Research Institute of the Azhar which is comprised of the 26 most important scholars of the Azhar. The members of this institute are elected. Chairman of the Institute is the Sheikh al-Azhar, Dr. Mohammed Sayyed Tantawi.
