There are many Imams and Scholars within our British society who quietly and steadfastly contribute to making it better and prosperous for all. Without these pillars of our community and the work that they do daily, we would not be able to accomplish our collective goals and achieve our vision for a more inclusive, vibrant and diverse British society.

As is the nature of these valuable individuals, they do not seek praise or commendation for their tireless work. It is important however that we recognise and celebrate these individuals, male and female, for their positive output so we can as a community express our gratitude, encourage excellence and motivate future generations to reach higher in their ambitions.
