500 Most Influential Muslims of 2009

The Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding based at Georgetown University have just released their publication "The 500 Most Influential
Muslims 2009".

The list was edited by Professor John L. Esposito and Professor Ibrahim Kalin and is an interesting mix of religious, political, humanitarian and royal figures. I don't agree with every entry on the list but it was good to see women on the list (although I am not sure I agree that they should have a seperate section). The document certainly highlights the diversity of the Muslim ummah (community) in any case.
