According to an analysis of 1000 most influence-wielders conducted by the Guardian and Operation Black Vote of influential Britons, the Muslims featuring in the list include:

[Sajid] Javid is the secretary of state for communities and local government. Since he became MP for Bromsgrove in 2010, he has also served as business secretary, culture secretary, and both economic and financial secretary to the Treasury.
At 25, Javid became the youngest ever vice-president of Chase Manhattan Bank, later moving to Deutsche Bank where he was a senior managing director.

. . .

[Muhammad] Butt is the Labour leader of Brent council, one of the UK’s most diverse boroughs. He is on the Local Government Assocation’s board for culture, tourism and sport.

. . .

[Hamza] Yousaf is the Scottish government minister for transport and the Islands.
He was elected to the Scottish parliament in 2011 when he was only 25, making him the youngest MSP ever elected. His progression to minister for external affairs and international development came quickly, a little over a year later, making him the youngest ever – and first BAME – member of the Scottish government.

. . .

[Sadiq] Khan is the mayor of London. Despite being on the receiving end of a nasty campaign that focused on his Muslim faith, Khan was elected with 1.3m votes, securing the biggest personal mandate of any politician in British history. He is the first BAME mayor of London. State-school-educated Khan was a human rights lawyer and local councillor before being elected to his Tooting seat in 2005, which he gave up for the mayoralty.”
