Given Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ immense impact on history, there are surprisingly few books that specifically analyze his leadership.
Although it is widely agreed that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was a moral and decent man, this explanation seems incomplete and almost inadequate. Joel Hayward approaches the Prophet’s leadership from a different vantage point by scrutinizing ancient sources to ascertain whether his conscious actions, behaviour and methods can provide any substantial and meaningful insights into the effectiveness of his strategic leadership.
Through meticulous research and rigorous analysis, Hayward demonstrates that Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was an uncommonly astute and self-reflective man with the ability to create and communicate a believable strategic vision of a necessary and desirable future. This engaging yet deeply scholarly book makes a major contribution to both leadership studies and the Prophet’s biography.
