I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'prayer leader' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'maybe single mother' is the wordplay.
'maybe' becomes 'i' (I've seen this in other clues).
'single mother' becomes 'mam' (I've seen this in other clues. I am not sure about the 'single' bit.).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for imam that I've seen before include "Muslim religious leader" , "Islamic religious leader" , "Moslem prayer leader" , "Muslim holy man" , "Muslim prayer leader" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
