Most Impactful Alimah

This category awards Alimahs that have demonstrated a positive impact in the Mosque and wider community through their work, relating to changes in behaviour, community perceptions, contributions to community activities or programmes that are changing peoples lives as well as interfaith programmes and regular visits to schools, hospitals and prisons.
