In this compassionate talk, filmed at the inaugural AFAR Experiences event in Cairo, Egypt, Moez Masoud speaks about his views on Islam, religion and humanity.

As the charismatic founder of Cairo's al Tareeq al Sah (Enlightened Path Institute), Masoud is an iman who focuses on the very modern-day challenges of religious deradicalization, interfaith dialogue and Islam in the world at large. He is one of Egypt's most progressive and influential religious leaders, managing to quote both the Koran and Bob Dylan in his oratories.

Moez played a prominent role in the revolution both as a protester on the ground and as a voice in the wider media (with an impressive 800,000 followers on Twitter). Speaking here at the Sultan Hassan mosque, Moez says "The revolution of January 25 will bring a close to the era defined by 9/11. It was an era when Muslims could not be who they wanted to be. Now, we have a chance to be who we want to be."
