Here are some points from studies on how much Imam’s earn in the USA. Many of these points are applicable in South Africa as well:

 

Judaism.

Rabbis came out on top, with an average annual haul of $140,000 or around R88,000 a month, including a tax-free housing allowance.

 

Christianity.

Clerics earn around $40,000 a year or R25,000/month. In bigger churches the average pastor with a flock of more than 2,000 earns $147,000/year.

 

Islam.

Imams only make around $30,000 annually and rarely receive a housing stipend. Many hold second jobs.

 

An imam should be assessed by any other normal scale. Many Imams spend an average of 5-6 years studying for the equivalent of a Master’s Degree in Islamic Law. They might give around 80 hours a week, but are paid based on 20. If we need someone to spend 30-40 hours a week in the Musjid, provide 10-20 hours a week of counseling, and on top of that be constantly on-call for marriages, funerals, and other emergencies, then a pay structure should be built to reflect that.

 

Even the most basic of benefits are generally not provided such as healthcare and reimbursements for education and development. The root of the problem is a lack of respect for our scholars. They are not perfect, but if they don’t guide us, who will? Our responsibility is to help them grow, because the more that they grow, the better equipped they are to lead our communities.
