    Our Leaders in the World’s 500 most influential Muslims List
    Sunni Dawate Islami’s President Hazrat Allama Shakir Ali Noorie and Chief Mentor Hazrat Allama Qamruzzaman Khan Azmi are consistently year on year being chosen to be in the honourable list of 500 Most Influential Muslims. The Muslims 500 is the annual publication by The Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre based in Amman, Jordan. The aim of the publication is to highlight the influences some Muslims have on the global Muslim ummah or community.
