Islamic Perspectives on Leadership
The Islamic Perspectives on Leadership is among the key results of the Islamic Leadership Development Program. After assembling a diverse group of Muslim scholars, academics and professionals, a writeshop was held in Antipolo on October 20-24, 2008. Aimed at determining the Islamic perspectives on leadership as provided for in the Holy Qur’an, the Sunnah of Prophet Mohammad (saw), his companions and the examples of the Good Predecessors (Salafus – Saleh), and practices of the Four Rightly Guided Caliphs (Khulafa – al – Rashideen), the writeshop was also integrated contemporary works of modern Islamic scholars as reference materials to provide a present-day perspective on Islamic leadership. The document then underwent a series of validations with Muslim scholars from Tawi-Tawi, Sulu, Basilan, Maguindanao and Marawi.
