40 Influential & Inspiring Muslims

  • HalalTrip 40 is a compilation of inspiring Muslims who have contributed eagerly, persistently, arduously, and have significantly impacted the community through their craft, product, or service. HalalTrip 40 aims to be an annual compilation as nominated by the community.
  • We wanted to create a compilation of indivduals that valued the big things and also the small things. A compilation that sheds light on individuals who contribute for a greater purpose. We sought individuals who have made a huge impact on the community to give them the credit they deserve.
  • HalalTrip 40 recognises the efforts of Muslims in their respective fields, be it humanitarian work, content creation, or being a pioneer in their space. There are four categories in HalalTrip 40: The Firsts, The Advocates, The Inspirers, and The Creators.
  • HalalTrip 40 in no way implies our endorsement of their views. We measure their spheres of influence through the many areas and remarkable contributions they have made to the Muslim community.
  • If you know of anyone and would like to recommend them for the HalalTrip 40 2024 list.
