Meet Nur Abu Bakar, Sultan of the Muslim Compound in Culiat, Quezon City. As the Sultan, he serves as the noble authority and adviser of their community. He has been leading their compound since January 2011. "Bilang lider at tumatayong ama ng Muslim Compound, lagi kong ipinapaalala sa kanila ang pagmamahal sa kapwa, pagmamahal sa ating mga anak at sa ating asawa. Ano ang ibig sabihin kapag mahal mo ang kapwa mo? Hindi ibig sabihin ay bibilhan mo sila ng mga gamit at luho. Ang tunay na pagmamahal sa kapwa ay maipapakita sa hindi paglabag sa batas ng Panginoon at pamahalaan. Kung lumabag ka sa batas, para mo na ring binigyan ng problema ang kapwa at pamilya mo, lalo na kung nakulong ka. Lahat ng relihiyon ay may masama at mabuti. May mga tumutupad sa batas at may mga hindi. Hindi natin puwedeng sabihin na porke ikaw ay Kristiyano, Iglesia ni Kristo o Muslim ay tutupad ka o sasalungat sa batas. Ang obligasyon ko bilang kanilang lider ay ipapaala kung ano ang masama at ano ang mabuti.”
