THE WORLDS 500 MOST INFLUENTIAL MUSLIMS

Welcome to the twelfth annual issue of The Muslim 500: The World’s 500 Most Influential Muslims. We are very pleased that we have made it this far and that the book has evolved as it has.

We thank you for all your support and suggestions and look forward to continuing receiving them.

There are approximately 1.9 billion Muslims in the world today, making up 26% of the world’s population, or just over one-quarter of mankind.

As well as being citizens of their respective countries, they also have a sense of belonging to the ‘ummah’, the worldwide Muslim community.

This publication sets out to ascertain the influence some Muslims have on this community, or on behalf of the community.

Influence is any person who has the power (be it cultural, ideological, financial, political or otherwise) to make a change that will have a significant impact on the Muslim world or Muslims.

The first two examples also point to the fact that the lists, and especially the Top 50, are dominated by religious scholars and heads of state. Their dominant and lasting influence cannot be denied, especially the rulers, who in many cases also appoint religious scholars to their respective positions.

This doesn’t discount the significant amount of influence from other sectors of society. How to measure this influence is of course the most challenging aspect of the publication and the one where opinions diverge the most.

Influence can sometimes be gauged on a quantitative basis, the number of followers, the number of books written, the number of sales etc., but more often it is not something measurable in quantitative terms and is more related to the qualitative and lasting effect of that influence.

A combination of social metrics, public opinion (we have a month-long open call for nominations every year, and all of the suggestions are considered) and expert opinion are the basis of this attempt to measure influence.

The achievements of a lifetime are given more weight than achievements within the current year. People who are trailblazers, or the lone voice in
