The Top 50 Muslim (2014-2015) : President Joko Widodo, Dr KH Said Aqil Siradj, Professor Dr Din Syamsuddin and Habib Luthfi bin Yahya


Joko Widodo, or Jokowi as he is popularly known, will become the President of Indonesia on October 20, 2014. He won 55% of the vote in the presidential elections which took place in July 2014; a victory margin of 4%. Widodo was nominated to be a presidential candidate by former President Megawati Sukarnoputri of the Indonesian Democratic Party-Struggle (PDI-P). He is seen very much as a populist leader, not enjoying the support of religious scholars, nor coming from a wealthy or military background.

Dr KH Said Aqil Siradj is the leader of Indonesia’s largest independent Muslim organization and one of the world’s most influential Islamic organizations, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), or ‘Awakening of Scholars’. Siradj guides millions through his work with the NU.

As chairman of the largest modernist Islamic organisation in Indonesia, as well as Chairman of the Indonesian Council of Ulema, Din Syamsuddin influences the Muslim world on various fronts. He was re-elected as the chairman of the Muhammadiyah for another five years in July 2010. He is also Professor of Islamic Political Thought at the National Islamic University in Jakarta; and Chairman of Centre for Dialogue and Cooperation among Civilizations.

Leader: Habib bin Luthfi is currently: Ra’is ‘Amm of the Jam’iyyah Ahli Thariqah al- Mu’tabarah al-Nahdliyah, Head of MUI Middle Java, and the spiritual leader of the Ba Alawi tariqah in Indonesia. The Ba Alawi are descendants of the Prophet (PBUH) who migrated to Hadramaut in Yemen early on in Islamic history. They played a huge role in bringing Islam to the Far East, including Indonesia and Malaysia, and they hold high prominence to this day.
