Mufti Taqi Usmani tops Muslim500 list of 2020

The Muslim500 published its revered list of the world’s 500 most influential Muslims. Pakistan’s Mufti Taqi Usmani topped the list, having previously been placed 6th on the 2019 list.

The annual publication, first released in 2009, is compiled by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Centre in Jordan, commemorating influential Muslims from all around the world.

The publication’s definition of “influential” refers to “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.”

Given the title of ‘Mufti Justice Imam Sheikh-ul-Islam’ by his teacher, Mawlana Sahban Mahmood, Mufti Taqi Usmani is a well-respected Sunni Hanafi scholar from Pakistan. He served as a judge on the Federal Shariah Court of Pakistan from 1981 to 1982 and the Shariah Appellate Bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan between 1982 and 2002.

Having turned 76-years-old, he remains a leading intellectual scholar, particularly in Islamic finance. According to Muslim500, he has taught over ten thousand students at the Darul ‘Uloom in Karachi.
