The quiet and unassuming legislator is a devout Muslim who has on several occasions displayed exemplary tolerance and a lack of religious bias in his interactions with the Christian community, including his friends, aides and confidants; a trait which has garnered him the support of Christians as well as Muslims especially in his bid for Speaker of the House.
