Sale price$36.90


"All of you are shepherds, and each one of you is responsible for his/her flock". 

- (Hadith from Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim) 

This profound statement by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ compels us to recognise that we are all leaders at some level.

  • But what makes someone a good leader?
  • And how does each and everyone of us measure up against the leadership standards set by the Prophet ﷺ?

This book presents a well researched leadership framework combined with extensively applied contemporary practitioner case studies for the first time to readers interested in a Seerah (prophetic life) based universal model for good leadership. Drawing upon scholarly findings from Eastern and Western sources, and having examined an extensive range of works on Seerah, an original framework of eleven prophetic leadership qualities are presented with an entire chapter devoted to each.

Well known and lesser known events from the Seerah are explored and analysed like never before, and viewed with a specialist leadership lens, extracting insights on effective people management, authentic leadership and succeeding against the odds.

Each chapter on leadership qualities offers not only what the quality means and where it can be found in the life of the Prophet ﷺ, but how one can develop those qualities within themselves as well.

Prologue of the book by Sharif H. Banna:
"Islam is more than just a way of life; it is a way of being. And aspiring for great leadership from an Islamic perspective commences with learning how the Prophet was - to believe in him, to love him, to emulate him, and to share his transformational legacy with the rest of humanity. The world needs prophetic leadership, and this book helps you to reflect deeply on that paradigm."
