Eli, a Muslim convert who has become an earnest and progressive imam,
Eli (Surprised): Yes?
Afzal (going to shake hands): Afzal, Afzal Jatt.
Eli: Do I know you?
Afzal: Zarina’s father.
Afzal: I’m not going to find some wall in your bedroom covered with pictures of my daughter on it.
Eli: Whoa. Of course not.
Afzal: Because if it’s there, I will find it. I will.
Eli: I don’t doubt that, sir.
Afzal: How much money do you make?
