What is the Allaho Akber Award?
The National Islamic Committee on Scouting established the “Allaho Akber” (God is Great) Award to recognize outstanding service by adults in the promotion of Scouting among Muslim youth.
Recommendations for the award may be made by Imams of the Mosques, directors of Muslim centers, presidents of Muslim organizations, or Boy Scout councils to the National Islamic Committee on Scouting. If approved, the name of the nominee should be submitted for ratification to the Islamic Council on Scouting of North America.
In case there is no local Islamic Committee on Scouting, an ad hoc committee consisting of the local Scouting executive, local Imam or director of the Muslim Center will serve as the awards committee and would forward its approval to the Islamic Council on Scouting.
Guidelines for Selection of Nominee
An “Allaho Akber” recipient should:
