Allaho Akber Award (Cub Scout Pack (BSA))

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 of North America.
