Amr Khaled on Time top 100

Amr Khaled is among the 100 most influential people in the world this year according to Time.

He is as popular as any Pop Star, perhaps even Amr Diab, which led al Ahram Weekly to use the headline Amr versus Amr a few years ago. He has been compared to Billy Graham and Dr Phil. Egypt´s most popular fotboll star Abou Treika counts Amr Khaled as an inspiration to him, and a whole new generation of urban, affluent and young has found God through him. During Ramadan there were huge billboards all over Cairo with him, wishing the people Happy Ramadan from Iqra, and his website is the third most read in the Arab World.

You can find links to a long feature article from the New York Times magazine and to a Lindsay Wise´s Thesis on Amr Khaled in a post of mine from April 06. You could also read this Independent piece.
