- "Imam has many interests, Indiana. Priest. Scholar. Astronomer. If anyone can can explain the markings, he can."
- ―Sallah el-Kahir[src]
As an acquaintance of Sallah el-Kahir, Sallah believed that Imam would be able to translate the markings on the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra for Indiana Jones in his search to acquire the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis in 1936 due to Imam's talents as priest, scholar, and an astronomer.
