US President Donald Trump listened to a Quran recitation as part of an inaugural service on Saturday.

The imam who recited the verses, Imam Mohamed Magid, executive director of the All Dulles Area Muslim Society, had been expected to recite the call to prayer, instead he read out a verse from Surah Al-Hujarat:

"O humankind, We have created you a single male and female (Adam and Eve) and made you into nations and tribes and communities, that you may know one another. Really, the most honored of you in the sight of God is the most righteous of you, and God has all knowledge..."

The imam also read a verse from Surah Ar-Rum: "And among the signs of God is the creation of heaven and earth, and the variation in your languages and your colors. Verily, in that are signs for those who know."

The imam was among 26 religious leaders from several faiths to participate in the service, according to CNN.
