There are just two days left to nominate individuals making an outstanding impact in their field for the annual book The Muslim 500. Researchers are preparing the 2014/15 edition and are in the process of wrapping up nominations from the public. They have already received over 6000 nominations. Nominations will close on Saturday June 14, 2014.
The yearly publication, which started in 2009, profiles the 500 most influential Muslims in the world. The book is compiled by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre in Amman, Jordan. The report is issued annually in cooperation with Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University in the United States.
As the process of evaluating influence must account for many factors, nominators should include pertinent information and links where other information can be obtained. Letters of nomination should thus be comprehensive, but no longer than 500 words.
There is no need to nominate someone more than once. The final outcomes will draw from the information received in nominations, and will be based upon the research of our staff and input from academic consultants.
Points that will be considered and that you should address in your nomination include:
-Area of Influence (e.g. religious, political, academic)
-Geographical Region of Influence
-Number of People Influenced
-Duration of Influence
