  1. Assalam-o-alaikum

    Congratulations on this great distinction. Your ranking in being the most influential Muslim is actually higher because your lectures have made Islamic countries do corrections in their recorded history, but still there is a lot more they need to acknowledge publicly.

    Jazakallah
