This chapter focuses on the role of faith and religion in Salam's life. Salam belonged to the Ahmadi sect of Islam. Aside from being a driving influence on his personal and family life, Salam's fervent belief affected his status in Pakistan: his reputation in his home country was always as a barometer of Ahmadi status.
