Mohammed Amin is a British Muslim who is Vice Chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum and is listed as one of the 100 most influential Muslims in the UK.[1] He is a patron of Tell MAMA,[2] the UK organization which monitors anti-Muslim incidents and provides support for victims of such incidents.

Amin has lived in the UK since 1952. He graduated in mathematics from Clare College, Cambridge, then obtained a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Leeds. He is a chartered accountant, an associate member of the Association of Corporate Treasurers and a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Taxation (the first Muslim to serve on its Council).[2]

As a tax advisor, Amin was the first Muslim partner in the UK at Price Waterhouse, now PricewaterhouseCoopers. He was also an elected member of PwC's Supervisory Board, the first and so far only Muslim in that role. Before his retirement at the end of 2009, Amin was PwC's head of Islamic finance in the UK.[2]

Amin is deputy chairman of the Conservative Muslim Forum, co-chair of the Muslim Jewish Forum of Greater Manchester (which he founded in 2005[3]), a member of the University of Salford Council, a patron and chair of Donors of Curriculum for Cohesion, and a member of the Advisory Council of the Three Faiths Forum. He speaks and writes regularly on Islamic finance and on issues connected with politics and social cohesion.[2]
