|Swedish term or phrase: moskésamfund|
|Begreppet "imam" som utöver sin gängse betydelse av präst för ett moskésamfund även betecknar en andlig och världslig ledare.|
Does moskésamfund refer to a community that meets at a mosque or a mosque school or academy?
In you text moskésamfund has the meaning of "congragation",as is compatible with the original and pure function of the imam.
But as your text continues, an imam is ever more becoming a political leader
as many muslims interlink both religion and law (sharia).
So, where Scandinavians are separating the Church and politics, the Islam is, I believe, heading in the opposite direction.

|Tack för svaret. "Congregation" brukar användes i kristliga sammanhäng, men det funkar här också.|
