Dr Amr Khaled

Preacher and Social Activist

Amr Khaled has been a televangelist to the Islamic world since 1998. He communicates through his TV shows and web campaigns using Islamic ethics as a way to inspire and foster community development, tolerance and intercultural relations.


Popular Media Figure

Part of Khaled’s influence derives from the fact that he appeals to the common person. He holds a degree in accounting; has no formal religious education; wears suits and ties, and has a clean-shaven face except for a trimmed moustache—everything you do not expect from a Muslim preacher. His everyman appeal has lead to immense popularity. Khaled is credited with the launch of the first “Muslim reality show: Mujadidun on Dubai TV.” Khaled’s speeches are published online, on bestselling cassettes and CDs. His website is translated from Arabic into nearly twenty languages and it rivals Oprah Winfrey’s in terms of traffic. His videos have racked up 33 million views on YouTube and he boasts 5 million likes on Facebook.

Community Development

Khaled’s goal is to encourage community development in the Muslim world by its own people with religious faith as the guiding inspiration—something he believes should be linked to interfaith dialogue, tolerance and moderation. The breakup of communities is something Khaled sees as responsible for the malaise in the Muslim world, and something he believes puts the future of young people in jeopardy. One foundation he has launched to realise this objective of community development is Life Makers, which has a stated goal of producing a renaissance for the Arab and Muslim worlds.
