CCLM2051K-Leadership and Management

Salam everyone,
It was wonderful to meet all of you for the first time last Friday evening.
Are you excited about this course???
What does leadership mean?
Well, leadership in Islam is a trust(amanah).
According to the Prophet(saw), Muslims must appoint a leader during a trip, select a leader (imam) to lead the prayer, and choose a leader for other group activities. In the family unit, the husband is the leader of his family. In the absence of her husband, the wife assumes the role of leader in the house. Leadership in Islam, is not a matter of grabbing power but essentially serving Allah (swt) through the implementation of His commands in all aspects of life.

Since we are going to dwell on this subject for the next nine weeks, I need you to think and answer this question:

* Besides our beloved prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who is the best leader that we know so far, can you name me another good leader that you know of and why you say so? Do some research if you are not sure who that person is.

Good Luck everyone and see you next week :-)

In my opinion, another good example of the best leadership is our fourth Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. He has ruled our country, Malaysia, for 22 years since 1981 until 2003. I admire his leadership because he is very charismatic, futuristic, open-minded, intelligent, innovative, knowledgeable and influential. I think he has all of the characteristics of a great leader. He has successfully brought off a new development for this country. Some of his mega projects are North-South Expressway, Kuala Lumpur International Airport(KLIA), Multimedia Super Corridor(MSC), Kuala Lumpur City Center(KLCC), Petronas Twin Towers and Putrajaya. All of these achievements have become our country's pride. In order to appreciate his efforts in promoting the economic development for this country, he has been granted the sobriquet of Bapa Pemodenan(Father of Modernization). Apart from that, he he has also been concerned and maintained the peace and prosperity among various races in Malaysia. In conclusion, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is one of the greatest leaders in our countries. We should try to imitate the characteristics of the best leaders to become another best leader in the future.

Salam. I seriously adore Sultan Muhammad Al-Fatih.The title 'Al-Fatih' is given to him as he succeed to set Constantinople(today known as Istanbul) free from Byzantine Empire.During Khandaq war Prophet Muhammad s.a.w had mentioned that ".. Constantinople (now Istanbul) will fall into the hands of the Muslim army. Sovereign is the best of kings, military forces are the best ... "(Hadith narrated by Imam Ahmad).

The Prophet's Hadith is realized almost 800 years later by Sultan Muhammad Al Fatih, Caliph 7th Usmaniyyah Government and his 150,000 soldiers.He ascended the throne at the age of 19 years and ruled for 30 years (1451-1481). He was a great statesman and military commander who leads his own 25 great war campaigns.In the war, he thought about tactics in the war, archery and horseback riding by the commander of the army. In the academic , he was a premier scholar of his time as he fluent in seven languages, namely Arabic, Latin, Greek, Serbian, Turkish, Persian, and Hebrews. In the field of knowledge of governance his father, Sultan Murad II has appointed his new 12-year-old acting the Caliph. In this age he has matured as young as able to handle worst enemy.

He always tawadhu’ and humble. Besides, he is the one who leads others. During the build of Hissari Rumeli citadel, he opened his shirt and his turban, lifting stones and sand until his religious scholars and ministers had to follow the same work and join with him. He is a calm, quiet, brave, patient, firm and able to keep the secret of the government strongly. He is very loving towards scholar, and always talks to them about the problems of the country. It shows that he is very considerate leader.

He is smart and brilliant in planning. During the two years after taking the throne, he reviewed plans for the city of Constantinople every night to identify weaknesses point. He also reviewed the reasons for the failure of previous campaigns and discussed with the commander about the appropriate strategies that should be taken. He brought together scholars and motivator for burning spirit of jihad army. As soon as the approaching wall of the fortress city of Constantinople, he ordered Azan and congregational prayers. Byzantine ‘s military feared to see 150,000 troops behind their leader.

Constantinople was besieged for 53 days without any signs of success has given rise to boredom and lose confidence in his army. At this critical moment he spoke to raise the spirit of his troops, "O my troops, I am prepared to die in the way of Allah. Those who want to battle follow me! ". Luckily there was still armies to continue the war and finally on May 29, 1453, City of Constantinople fell to Islam. He changed Constantinople name to Islambol (Muslims overall).

On the first Friday prayer there was a question about who suppose to be the imam and after several questions Sultan Muhammad was chosen since he is the one who never left the obligatory prayers, Rawatib prayer,Tahajjud prayer since puberty. He is the one who has been mentioned by Prophet Muhammad.

From the criteria mentioned, he is the leader that able to catch my attention. He is well-balanced in worldly affairs and hereafter that supposedly have by Muslim leaders.

How are you mdam?..
in my opinion,the good example of leader is Tunku Abdul Rahman , our first Prime Minister of Malaysia.His full name is Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah.He is called Bapa Kemerdekaan (Father of Independence) or Bapa Malaysia (Father of Malaysia).he had made many contribution in the developement of our country.One of them in the independent of Malaya (which became Malaysia in 1963).He was struggled to get the freedom of Malaya.For me, he is not just good in politics but also in sport.Tunku Abdul Rahman was a firm believer that sports was a good catalyst to bring about greater social unity among Malaysians of various races and religions. Therefore he supported or started many sports events.Tunku initiated an international football tournament, the Pestabola Merdeka (Independence Football Festival) in 1957. The following year, he was elected as the first president of Asian Football Confederation (AFC), a post he held until 1976.He also actived in horse racing.Furthermore,he also involved in Islam. he successfully established the Islamic Welfare Organisation (PERKIM), an organisation to help Muslim converts adjust to new lives as Muslims.He really concern about the welfare of muslim.in conclusion, Tunku Abdul Rahman is the best leader that we should take his good characteristics to become excellent leader in the future.

In addition for a good example of leadership goes to Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi.He was born in Tekrit in 1138CE. He was a very intelligent and a noble person who was brought up by his father and his uncle.He loved peace.After his uncle's death, he became the commander and Vizier of Egypt. Salahuddin Ayyubi never lived in the palace. Instead, he lived in a small house near the mosque. Salahuddin had a great love for Islam and as the vizier and general of Egypt, he tried hard to root out the Crusaders. For this purpose, he maintained a strong army. He established peace and prosperity throughout the country. When the Fatmid caliph Al Aziz died, Salahuddin became the ruler of Egypt. Here, I support his good leadership example in a story when in 1187 CE, Salahuddin conquered Jerusalem. Thousands of Crusaders were arrested. However, when their mothers, sisters, and wives appealed to Salahuddin, he released them. Many crusaders were ransomed. However, he paid for many of them. In addition, he provided them transport, etc. He gave free pardon to all citizens. He even arranged for their traveling. He granted freedom to Christians to leave the city if they paid a small tribute. Salahuddin paid it, himself, for about ten thousand poor people. His brother paid it for seven thousand people. Salahuddin also allocated one of the gates of the city for people who were too poor to pay anything that they leave from there. Those are the examples that he was a good leader during his life. I hope, event in a different eras, but based on the same principles of his leadership, we can apply them in our daily life even if we are not so to be a leader of nation but still we are a leader during our life..

Salam. In my opinion, the person that I adore so much is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or also known as Mahatma Gandhi. He was a prominent figure known for Indian Independence Movement. Mahatma Gandhi which means ‘Great Soul’ and he was also honoured as the Father of The Nation.
He lived in modestly and not like other prominent figures who live in bungalow and so on. He wore the traditional Indian dress known as dhothi and shawl, woven from yarn that he had spun by hand himself. Even he wore his traditional dress eventhough he was in abroad. He keep his identity as Indian and never been shame of it. He ate simple vegetarian food and undertook long fasts as a means of both self-purification and social protest. Overall, he lived a very simple life and do not exaggerate much on his living.
Even when he was abroad, he had to face a lot of obstacle as a foreigner. Once he was ordered to remove his turban, but he refuse to do so. This was an awakening point for him to social injustice and influencing his subsequent social activism.
Gandhi possesses a lot of good characteristics that we should follow. Firstly truth, even Mahatma Gandhi dedicated his life in the purpose of discovering the truth. He learned a lot from his own mistake. Gandhi also stated that the most important battle for one to fight was overcoming his own demons, fears, and insecurities. This characteristic should be instilled in the mind of every human as to look at ourself for the things that we had done and not pointing or blaming others.
Secondly, he introduce the term of non-violence. Mahatma Gandhi was an incredible individual. He was among the first to apply non-violence in the political field on a huge scale. Gandhi quoted that: “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?". He some sort applying the principles that once applied by our beloved Prophet Muhammad whereby it is stated that whenever a war happens, we Muslims have to protect the women, the children, the old people and the mosque. Power based on love is a lot more effective and permanent than power derived from fear of punishment. He also believed that mutual cooperation is important in a nation.
Lastly, he showed the sign of simplicity that we should practise in our everyday life.
He first displayed this principle when he gave up wearing western-style clothing, which he associated with wealth and success. He and he followers adopted the practice of weaving their own clothes from thread they themselves spun. He subsequently wore a dhoti for the rest of his life to express the simplicity of his life.
In conclusion, a good leader should or at least possesses some of the characteristic that is shown by Mahatma Gandhi. We should change the mind set of people nowadays who thinks that a good leader should be rich, having millions of dollar and so on and the mentality of some of people who thinks that could control a nation by implementing violence. This is not right, we have a more diplomatic way to do that by implementing non-violence manners. Mahatma Gandhi was a very simple man, yet he left a big mark to his nation and until today the Indians are proud of him.

salam madam.....in my opinion, one of the best example as a good leader is Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Shah bin Syed Nor Al-Bukhary which is the richest Bumiputra corporate figure in Malaysia. With involvement in diversified business areas which include transportationand logistics, plantations, property development, defense and armory as well as engineering and power generation, he has a net worth estimated to be US$2.00 billion according to Forbes, making him the 7th richest Malaysian.

Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary was born in 1951 at a middle class family where his father’s work is breeding cow business while his mother is just a housewife. His higher education is only until form 5 because he can’t afford to further his studies at that time. He started help his father’s business by keeping and manage his father’s bookkeeping. He also helped his mother sells the vegetables and roti canai before going to school early in the morning. . He’s a mysterious man. Where he does not like to show off the luxurious life. He is easy to get along with other people. Back in the year 1951, poverty and hard to suffer in life is the keyword towards his successful life. He used to sell the convenience goods to the people around his neighborhoods. He and his father later on get along to do the business well. Time after time, the business already moves from one stage to another. They used to import the cow from Thailand and sell the meats domestically.
But the happiness is only for a moment, the business washed away by foot and mouth disease. As his determination starting to skyrocket, he quickly moved to expand into diversification of other businesses. His next big move was in the logistics business, with initial goal to transport their trading materials.
He used to cooperate with chinese in business where he buy most of the share and business which is view as failed business and he then built up the business until it success and give profit. As a muslims, he never forget about the charity in Islam. He give charity and lots of money to the peoples in need. He build more than 10 mosques in Malaysia. He also gave funds valued at 1.25 million pounds sterling (RM7.5 M) to OXFORD UNIVERSITY for the Islamic Learning Center in London.
Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhari can be described as a very low profile person. He doesn’t like to go public or being published in the media. He currently holds a share in Mining Corporation Berhad (MMC), Bernas, Malakoff Berhad, Johor Port Berhad, Impian Teladan Sdn Bhd and many more others. Even becoming the talk of the country, Syed Mokhtar most of the times tried to lay low. He is rarely available for press interview and remains elusive in the world of publicity. Instead, he focuses his work on philanthropist's work and is passionate with his charity foundation under the name of Al-Bukhary Foundation.
Al-Bukhary Foundation helped to build Islamic Art Museum valued at RM70 millions as well as building many mosques and charity establishments in Kedah, Perak and across the country. He is also a generous person since he donates a lot of his money for welfare. For an example, he gives scholarship to 1000 Saudi Arabian student to study in Malaysia, For me, we should take these good characteristics of him as our role model so that we not only success in the world only, but also Hereafter....that's all madam..=)

Assalamua'laikum w.b.r to all of you and our beloved madam hayati...

In my opinion, I tend to choose Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat for another good example of great leadership.He also known as "Tok Guru"..Not all people can get this title although they are from pondok school.The good character that is shown in doing some job and also in his duty make people trust him very well.He's not only hold the post just to get name or to be proud by other people, but he think that his post as 'amanah' from ALLAH S.W.T and he must do well or he need to answer in front of ALLAH S.W.T..So, when some of people does not listen to his advise so that not to do something opposite from Islam, makes him very sad and want to resign..I'm very proud of him.In conclusion,Tok Guru is a leader for the people.He has their interest at heart.I have alway admired this great man for his resolute character and his simple and humble way.May he live long and continue to inspire this nation.

In my opinion, another good example of the best leadership is our khalifa Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (Abdullah ibn Abi Qahafa). Actually he was the Prophet Muhammad's father-in-law, and one of his closest companions and advisers. Abu Bakr succeeded to the Prophet's political and administrative functions, thereby initiating the Office of the Caliphate.Besides, Abū Bakr purportedly was the first male convert to Islam. Muhammad conferred on him the title as-Siddiq, the veracious, for his power to discern the truth. Upon Muhammad's death he became the first Muslim ruler (632–634), regarded in Sunni Islam as the first of the Rashidun (righteously guided Caliphs). In Shia Islam, he is regarded as a usurper and political opportunist. His caliphate lasted two years and three months, during which time he consolidated the Muslim state. Upon the death of Muhammad, some tribes rebelled, and in return he fought the Ridda wars against these Arab tribes to establish Islamic rule over all of Arabia. He also invaded Sassanid Persian and Byzantine Empire conquering the lands of Syria and Iraq. Abu Bakr is also well known for collecting the verses of the Quran and putting them into the final book read by Muslims today. Many Hafiz (a person who commits the Quran to memory) had died in the previous wars so he was concerned about the preservation of the Quran. He also stopped the Quran being translated into different versions of Arabic.

.In addition, Abu Bakr was the first person outside the family of Muhammad to openly become a Muslim.His conversion brought the most benefit to Islam. Abu Bakr's dakwah brought many people to Islam. He persuaded his intimate friends to convert to Islam. In Medina, Muhammad decided to construct a mosque. A piece of land was chosen and the price of the land was paid for by Abu Bakr. Muslims constructed a mosque named Al-Masjid al-Nabawi at the site and Abu Bakr also took part in construction
In 624 Abu Bakr was involved in the first battle between the Muslims and the Quraysh of Mecca known as the Battle of Badr, but he did not fight instead acting as one of the guards of Muhammad's tent. In 625 he participated in the Battle of Uhud which ended in a rout by the majority of the Muslims. Before the battle begun, Abu Bakr's son ‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn Abi Bakrwho was still non-Muslim and was fighting from the side of the Quraysh, came forward and threw down a challenge for a duel. Abu Bakr accepted the challenge but was stopped by Muhammad. His son later converted to Islam and gained fame during the Muslim conquest of Syria as a fierce warrior. Later, in 627 he participated in the Battle of the Trench and also in the Battle of Banu Qurayza. In 628 he participated in Treaty of Hudaybiyyah and was made one of the witnesses over the pact.
In 630 when Muslim armies rushed for the Conquest of Mecca, Abu Bakr was a part of the army. Sunni Muslims also consider Abu Bakr as one of the ten Sahaba (companions) for whom Muhammad had testified that they were destined for Paradise. He is regarded as Khalifa Rasulullah The successor of Messenger of Allah, and first of the Rightly Guided Caliphs. Abu Bakr had always been the closest friend and confidant of Muhammad throughout his life. He was always there beside the Prophet at every major event. Abu Bakr is regarded the best person from the followers of Muhammad. During the last few weeks of his life, Muhammad preferred Abu Bakr to lead the Muslims in prayer while he was ill. Upon Muhammad's death, it was Abu Bakr who demonstrated sagacity to keep the ranks of the Muslims together. Muhammad had not left behind a clear will on who would succeed him.
From the criteria mentioned, he is the leader that able to catch my attention. He is well-balanced in worldly affairs and hereafter that supposedly have by Muslim leaders.In conclusion, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq is the best leader that we should take his good characteristics to become excellent leader in the future.

In my opinion, the best leader besides our Prophet (s.a.w) are the Khulafa' Ar-rasyidin; Abu Bakar As-siddiq, Umar Al-khatab, Uthman Ibn Affan and Ali Ibn Abi Talib. Among them, the most character that I like is Umar Al-khatab.

Umar is the most powerful and influential Muslim rulers. He was also an expert jurist and best known for his justice. Umar was given a title "Al-Farooq" which means the one who distinguishes between right and wrong. While his house is called as "Darul 'Adal" which means house of justice. He was also called as "Amirul Mukminin" which means commander of the faithful or prince of the Believers.
During is rule, Islamic empire has expanded more than two third of Eastern Roman Empire. He was also a great political and military leader. His legislative abilities, firm political and administrative control over a rapidly expanding empire and his brilliantly coordinated multi-prong attacks against Sassanid Persian Empire that resulted in conquest of Persian empire in less than 2 years. Umar was the first to established special department for the investigation of complaints against the officers of the State (administrative court).
Therefore, I think we should follow Umar's footsteps to become a good Muslim leader.

Assalammualaikum Madam.

For me, I think the person who has the best leadership skills is Tun Dr Dato Mahathir Mohamad, our ex-prime minister. He is someone who always thinks more forward than other people. For example, he embarked on various large scale national projects such as Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC), Petronas Tower (KLCC), Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and the planned capital city of Putrajaya. However, on that time, many people opposed his idea of making Putrajaya as the third capital city other than Kuala Lumpur and Labuan because they think that Putrajaya is a waste of money. But if we look now, Putrajaya has been one of the famous cities that people want to have a job at and plus Putrajaya is nearer to KLIA, any international conferences can be done more smoothly and quickly. Tun Dr Dato Mahathir was also considered as one of Asia’s most influential leaders and also known widely as an outspoken critic of Western-style globalization. He always thinks about Malay race and Malaysia, and will try anything to make Malay people to be more educated in politics and economy; and Malaysia as a well-known country in the world. During his time as a prime minister, he turned Malaysia into a regional high-tech manufacturing, financial and telecommunications hub through his economic policies based on corporate nationalism, known as the various “Malaysia Plans” which set out the government middle-term objectives. He also has lots of books that were written by him. All those books are about politics, Islam, administration and many more. It has been 22 years he ruled Malaysia, and there are lots of his contributions that I didn’t managed to write it here. But I really think that he is a great leader based on the contributions he had done to Malaysia.

Despite our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), I chose Tun Hussein Onn, our late Malaysia's third prime minister who was given the title of "Father of Unity” as an exemplary leader. He was a son to Dato Onn Jaafar and Datin Halimah Hussein, born in Johor Bahru, Johor on 12th February 1922. He led our country from 1976 to 1981. Throughout the five years of being the Prime Minister, he tried very hard to promote the concept of racial unity through policies aimed at rectifying the economic imbalances between the communities. From my point of view, Tun Hussein Onn has made a deep and lasting impact as to the wellbeing of the nation. His efforts have contributed greatly to the many achievements made by Malaysia and the progress our country had attained. As far as we all know, Malaysia is a multiracial country and thus, if the communities were not united, lots of problem will be raised up. In order to develop our country, it demands sacrifices by all communities in the overall interest of the nation. It requires us to seek solutions which are acceptable to all communities rather than to any particular community. In short, I respect him as being very wise and dedicated leader as he focusing on developing our country deep down from the root. The keyword is “Unity” and once it has been achieved, any further developments will run smoothly. We should learn from Tun Hussein Onn as he had put his very best efforts to lead a country in his own ways. Being a good leader requires the person to be able to think, considering the future and convincing the followers to respect the decision made by the leader which will consequently lead to the achievement of the goals. Tun Hussein Onn undoubtedly possessed the characters as an exemplary leader which I adore so much.

For me, one of the good leaders is Yusof al-Qaradawi, who is an Egyptian Muslim scholar and currently working in University of Qatar. This is because Qaradawi is often claimed to be a moderate on religious and social matters. In addition, he is known as one of the most influential person among modern Muslims. Although it is often hard to detect how moderate he is, he clearly advocates the Islamic state and the power of Sharia. His method of working involves the modernization of a traditional Islamic method, aiming at solving contemporary problems which are not well regulated by Sharia.
He clearly defends the right to disagree and claims that Muslims should be tolerant to other Muslims with different views of their own.

Furthermore, he is best known for his program on Al Jazeera that has an estimated audience of 40 million worldwide and for a popular website named IslamOnline. Qaradawi has also published more than 80 books. Besides, he is the winner of eight international prizes for his scholarly contributions and is considered as one of the most influential Islamic scholars living today.
Moreover, he has become a trustee of the Oxford University Center for Islamic Studies and has been named as the technical consultant for a multi-million dollar epic movie in English on Muhammad (pbuh). Thus, Qaradawi is one of the best examples among leaders in the world.

Fathin Athirah Bt Yusof,
Section 8
Salam,
There are many leaders that can be our role model. As for me, I choose Khalid ibn Al-Waleed.
His real name is Khalid ibn Al-Mugeerah ibn Al-Waleed. Khalid was the son of Al-Mugueerah ibn Al-Waleed, the richest man in Makkah and the most famous and well-known poet during that time. Khalid was a tall man with a well built body. He was a knight and a warrior. People would mistake him for Umar ibn Al-Khattab because they looked so alike. Khalid became Muslim just three years before prophet Muhammad (pbuh) died.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) gave Khalid the name "The Sword of Allah". Even though he didn't participate in the early battles, prophet Muhammad (pbuh) saw that in the future, Khalid would fight to raise the word of Islam. Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) prediction about Khalid was right, because Khalid became the one who defeated both huge empires, Rome and Persia. He was the one who conquered the traitors of Islam led by Musailama the liar. He was also the one who opened Bilad Ashaam and Iraq. All this happened during the time when Abu Bakr and Umar Ibn Al-Khattab ruled.
Moreover, in one battle, called the Battle of Mu'tah, at last, the Muslims chose Khalid to lead the army against the massive army. Khalid continued the fight until night-time. Then, using his excellent war strategies, he pulled out his small army and switched the wings. Then, he ordered few men to go behind the hills and make rumble and dust to create an illusion that Muslim backups were approaching. The next day, both armies went into a more brutal battle, but the Kuffar thought that the Muslims had more backup on the way, so Alhamdulillah both the Romans and the Arabs panicked and cowardly ran from the battle field, with the small and courageous Muslim army chasing them. The Muslims won this incredible battle under the noble leadership of Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed.
Lastly, Khalid ibn Al-Waleed died when he was 55, during the rule of Umar ibn Al-Khattab. Khalid was living in the city of 'Hums, in Syria. When he died, he left two things behind, his horse and his sword. He was a great warrior, even before he was with the Muslims. Actually, part of the reason that the Muslims lost the battle of Uhud was because of him. On his deathbed, he was sad because he wanted to die as a Shaheed. His last words were: "I die as a camel dies! I die in bed, in shame, May the eyes of cowards never find rest in sleep!"
Thus, Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed should be role model for us. In my opinion, he has the real characteristics of a leader. Based on our course, Leadership and management, we learn on how to be a good leader and practice it as well. A leader should be brave, willing to lead, good at planning strategies, creative thinking, would fight to raise the word of Islam, trustworthy, and can gain respect from other people. All those criteria owned by Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed. That is why I choose him as an idol.

Khalid was a tall man with a well built body. He was a knight and a warrior. People would mistake him for Umar ibn Al-Khattab because they looked so alike. Khalid became Muslim just three years before prophet Muhammad (pbuh) died.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) gave Khalid the name "The Sword of Allah". Even though he didn't participate in the early battles, prophet Muhammad (pbuh) saw that in the future, Khalid would fight to raise the word of Islam. Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) prediction about Khalid was right, because Khalid became the one who defeated both huge empires, Rome and Persia. He was the one who conquered the traitors of Islam led by Musailama the liar. He was also the one who opened Bilad Ashaam and Iraq. All this happened during the time when Abu Bakr and Umar Ibn Al-Khattab ruled.
Moreover, in the Battle of Mu'tah, at last, the Muslims chose Khalid to lead the army against the massive army. Khalid continued the fight until night-time. He use his excellent war strategies to fight in the battle. The Muslims won this incredible battle under the noble leadership of Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed.
Lastly, Khalid ibn Al-Waleed died when he was 55, during the rule of Umar ibn Al-Khattab. Khalid was living in the city of 'Hums, in Syria. When he died, he left two things behind, his horse and his sword. He was a great warrior, even before he was with the Muslims. Actually, part of the reason that the Muslims lost the battle of Uhud was because of him. On his deathbed, he was sad because he wanted to die as a Shaheed. His last words were: "I die as a camel dies! I die in bed, in shame, May the eyes of cowards never find rest in sleep!"
Thus, Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed should be role model for us. In my opinion, he has the real characteristics of a leader. Based on our course, Leadership and management, we learn on how to be a good leader and practice it as well. A leader should be brave, willing to lead, good at planning strategies, creative thinking, would fight to raise the word of Islam, trustworthy, and can gain respect from other people. All those criteria owned by Khalid Ibn Al-Waleed. That is why I choose him as an idol.

Assalamualaikum, madam.

At Tarmizi reported that Umar Al-Khattab said, "There will born a son from my descendant who is just like me in terms of his courageous and he will full the entire world with righteousness."

The person that has been mentioned is Umar ibnu Aziz. His real name is Abu Jaafar Umar bin Abdul Aziz bin Marwan bin Hakam and was born around 682. He was brought up in Medina and lives there until the death of his father, after which he was summoned to Damascus by Abd al-Malik. After Abd al-Malik died, he served as governor of Medina under his cousin, Al-Walid. Umar continued to reign until Ummayad caliph, Sulaiman. Sulaiman then nominated Umar as his successor.
What impressed me to choose him as the best leader is due to his characteristics. He is extremely pious, he had the people's overwhelming support, and he preferred simplicity to the extravagance. For instance:

i. Immediately when he became a leader, he dismissed all the governors who were known to be cruel and unjust to the servants.
ii. All the jewellery and valuable presents brought before him were deposited to the state treasury in a number of occasions, instead of taking it for personal treasury.
iii. In his office he had two candles, if he wanted to write the state affairs, he would use the candle that belonged to the state and if he wanted to write his own personal letters, he would use the candle, which he bought from his own money.

His fruitful achievements lead to the well being of his society, and even when the time for annual obligatory charity from came, no one accepted it, but was to be sent to other towns to raise other's standards of living. Everybody could assist his family without begging. Can you imagine that during his rules just in 2 years 5 month the
entire ummah that time is prosperous! Nobody wants to accept the annual obligatory. Umar's leadership cannot be compared to any other person's - it was so unique. Different leaders ruled before and after him but none could break his record.
Umar Abdul Aziz, may Allah have mercy on him, died in Rajab in 101 AH at the age of 39 in Syria.His people mourned in great pain, saying that, they would never have a leader like Umar.

In my point of view, another great leadership that can we use as a role model in Islamic society is Faisal ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud(1904-1975) King of Saudi Arabi ruled from 1964-1975. As a king he is credited with rescuin the country's finances and implementing a policy of modernization and reform, while his main foreign policy themes were pan-Islamism, anti-Communism and anti-Zionism.

Upon his ascension, Faisal still viewed the restoration of the country's finances as his main priority. He continued to pursue his conservative financial policies during the first few years of his reign, and his aims of balancing the country's budget eventually succeeded, helped by an increase in oil production.

Faisal embarked on a modernization project that encompassed vast parts of the kingdom and involved various public sector institutions. The pinnacle of his achievements in modernizing the Kingdom was the establishment of a judicial system

The improved financial situation allowed Faisal to pursue various reforms and modernization projects. Several universities were established or expanded during his rule, and he continued to send a great number of students to foreign universities, especially in the United States. These students would later form the core of the Saudi civil service.

Many of the country's ministries, government agencies, and welfare programs were begun during Faisal's reign, and he invested heavily in infrastructure.He also introduced policies such as agricultural and industrial subsidies that were later to reach their height under his successors, Khalid and Fahd. In 1964, he issued an edict that all Saudi princes had to school their children inside the country, rather than sending them abroad; this had the effect of making it "fashionable" for upper class families to bring their sons back to study in the Kingdom. Faisal also introduced the country's current system of administrative regions, and laid the foundations for a modern welfare system. In 1970, he established the Ministry of Justice and inaugurated the country's first "five-year plan" for economic development.

Conclusion, he can be a good role model as a leader who expert in financial planning and economic development.

How are you??Hopefully that you are always fine, so that we can see you again tomorrow..hehe..oh ya!..I almost forgot, the best leader that I have ever heard is of course come from my wonderful homeland, Kelantan. She is truly the one and yet mysterious till now. Nobody knows that where she live and when she die after handed over her throne to Princess Saadong. She is known as Princess Cik Siti Wan Kembang. The mysterious of her make me so fascinated about her. Some of you might think that I am a person who is almost behind than others right? But i think the one who start to rule the country or state is the best one. Why? It is because to start a new thing that we have never ever try it before quite worried and burdensome, but here when we talk about Cik siti wan kembang, she is so amazing because she dares to take a risk to govern or rule the state. She is a good example as I believe that the courage is the most important thing in our life. For example, if you have it inside in yourself, you manage to do anything very well. It is a believe and a trust that you should hold always in your mind. Okey..back to the story of how Wan Kembang had to rule the country. Her father’s died when she was about four years old and she was the sole heiress. Her cousin was a prince of Johor, was appointed to be the Regent. Her royal uncle handed over the throne only at the time of his death, by then she was in her thirties. She was apparently well-groomed for her job which Kelantan continued to prosper under her rule. Here, we can see her charismatic management and even Arab traders bestowed upon her the title‘Paduka Cik Siti’ in which Siti means honourable woman. The courage that she had has inspired me to be like her. I am so admiring about how she manage to rule Kelantan successfully. Instead of that, she is also a kind-hearted ruler and not a selfish person because surprisingly she turned down marriage proposals only to remain single for the throne. I respect her sincerity as a ruler and the most important part is how she hold her Amanah(Trust) properly because i know that to be a good leader, it is hard but it is also not impossible.

Salam… in my opinion, of the great leaders besides our prophet is Khalid ibn Al-Walid. He also known as Sayfu al-Lāh al-Maslūl (the Drawn Sword of God), was a Sahabi, a companion of Prophet Muhammad. He also is one of the most successful commanders in history. He is known for his military tactics and powers, commanding the forces of Prophet Muhammad and those of his immediate successors of the Rashidun Caliphate; Abu Bakr and Umar.

He has the distinction of being undefeated in over a hundred battles, against the numerically superior forces of the Byzantine-Roman Empire, Sassanid-Persian Empire, and their allies, in addition to other Arab tribes. His strategic achievements include the conquest of Arabia, Persian Mesopotamia andRoman Syria within several years from 632 to 636.
He is also remembered for his decisive victories at Yamamah, Ullais, Firaz, and his tactical marvels, Walaja and Yarmouk. From his achievements, we can say that he can lead and motivate people to conquer the wars. A leader must have good communication skill so that he able to lead his follower and deliver message well to ensure people know the truth goal.

Moreover, his skills and tactics prove that he can make a wise decision and intelligence enough to win the battle. Able to make decisions within the required time is essential for a leader to grab the opportunity. In addition, he also has clear vision on what he wants. It is important to ensure that the whole team is continually moving in the right direction. As a leader, he or she must not think as a boss, but be part of the team to gain respect from people. Thus, people are willing to help and give their best as they see the team as ‘one’… that’s why I think he is one of the good leader...

I admire the hard work and determination of Muslim’s scholars in 2nd Islamic century. As we all know that first developer of science are Muslim scholars. Al-Razi, Al-Khawarizmi, Ibn Rushd and many other scholars impressed the westerners by their critical thought and intelligence. As a biomedical student, I personally look forward to be like Ibn Sina or commonly known in English as Avicenna. He was born in 980 near Bukhara, contemporary Uzbekistan, and died 1037 in Hamadan in modern Iran was a Persian polymath and foremost physician and philosopher of his time. The most amazing thing about him is he was an expert in many field of study such as astronomy, chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, psychology and poetry. He memorized the whole Quran in the early age of his life. I think, if he still alive now, he will get lots of Nobel Prize. Some of his contributions are worked on astronomy and discovered that the moon is as a spot against the surface of the sun and attempted to relate the religion and science. The “Book of Healing” is a treasure that left by him for our generation now. The book discussed about natural sciences, logic, psychology, geometric, arithmetic, astronomy and music. As a future scientist, I think he is one of the best role model that can inspire people to work hard. In addition, the spirit to seek for new knowledge should be always in mind so that we can contribute to the elevation of Ummah.

In my opinion, one of the good example of the best leadership is Ir Dr. Fathi Yakan.He's a Head of Islamic Labor Front in Lebanon and prominent Islamic scholar.He was born in Tripoli,north of Lebanon, on the 9th of February 1933.With a Master in Engineering and Ph.D. in Arabic and Islamic Studies, Sheikh Yakan was among the pioneers of the Islamic movement in the 1950s. He was also the General Secretary of the Lebanese Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya from 1962 until 1992 when he won his seat in the Lebanese parliament. He is a key activist on the political stage, which was very clear during the 1996 elections.

Sheikh Yakan initiated a political effort between PM Fouad Saniora and his allies on the one hand and the opposition in a bid to end the rule crisis in the wake of the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon. As a key figure in the Lebanese National Opposition, he headed prayers for Sunnis and Shiites on Friday, December 8, 2006 and called in his speech for the unity of Muslims against Israeli plots and schemes.

Dr. Yakan was married to Mrs Mona Haddad with whom he had established a private Islamic university (Al-Jinan University). He has four daughters and a son.
Sheikh Yakan was known for his support for resistance movements in Lebanon and the Arab and Islamic worlds.

He described the 2006 victory as one for Lebanon and the whole nation, Sunnis before Shiites, “because the project of the resistance is not only Lebanese project but a global one.”

The Islamic scholar also played a significant role in mending fences between political parties in the region. He was the mediator between the Islamic brotherhood in Syria and President Bachar Assad. He also played the same role between Syria and Turkey between 1998 and 1999, in the wake of the Syria-Turkey crisis.

He is the author of more than 35 books, some of them were translated into many languages, including:
How do we call for Islam? Towards a unified global Islamic Movement. What does “I’m a Muslim” mean? or also known as “Maza Ya'ni Intimai Ila Islam”.

Ir Dr Fathi Yakan passed away on 13th Jun 2009

From the characteristic mention,he is one of the contemporary leader that have my attention. Although he's a successful engineer, but he never take for granted his duty as daie and vicegerent on this world. Nowadays its very rare for us to have professionals get involve in Islamic field,that's the reason he impressed me more.

I choose Fatima az-zahra as the good example of the best leader.Fatima Al Zahra (as)was the daughter of the Holy Prophet Muhammmad (P), the wife of Imam Ali ibn Abu Taleb (as) the mother of Imams Hassan and Hussein (as).Fatima Al Zahra was born in the holy city of Mecca on Friday 20th Jamadi Thani.She fell to the ground in the position of prostration and the brightness and brilliance of her face illuminated the skies from east to west, and for this reason she was named "Al-Zahra", lady of light. Al-Zahra is known by nine names, such as Fatima. She was named Fatima because she and her followers are protected from hell.

Fatima al-zahra had the spirit of the Holy Prophet, his characteristics and morals. She had all the great and virtuous attributes of the women of respect and honours. She was the greatest woman with regard to her honour, faith and position in the sight of her Creator. Prophet of Allah (S.A.W.) said: "Fatima is the leader of the women of paradise". It necessarily means Fatima is the leader of the women of all the worlds, for the dwellers of paradise are not only from the ummah of Muhammad.She is also Al-Siddiqa meaning she is a woman who has honesty and sincerity, believing in the commands of Allah and his Prophet, never doubting for one moment.
She is also Al-Mubaraka, which means the blessed one because abundant blessings originated from her, such as the necklace that fed a hungry man, satisfied a poor man and freed a slave.

Besides,she is the most important lady on this universe and shall always be. When we wear our hijab we should be proud because we are copying Fatima, who after all is the Mistress of All Women. When we help others and give charity we again should be proud because we are doing as Fatima would have done.As a conclusion, i will try myself to be as good as fatima al-zahra in order to a better muslim lady and good mother in the future..

When i heard about the assignment i was pretty excited and worried. Excited because it is such interesting thing to discuss about, yet worried because I just heard about the assignment yesterday. Truly the best human leader is the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w, but he already left us thousands of years ago, so i try to find leader from modern world that could be considered as an icon, so iconic that his mere presence commands respect. fortunately for me, i just watched the movie 'Invictus', I was so moved by the movie that I decided to go MANDELA!!! waka waka!
I'm not gonna bore you with his lengthy biography, because that is not the matter that inspired me. I chose Nelson Mandela for his sheer tenacity in his anti-apartheid struggle. He spent most of his time fighting the rights of the black people of South Africa in prison, from 1962 until 1990..guys we are talking about almost three decades of incarceration. Still he remains steadfast and persistent in leading the anti-apartheid movement. I'm not really sure that an average joe would simply forsake his freedom to protect other people's freedom, but that is what Nelson Mandela did and at the end of the day he succeeded in uniting South Africa, leaving it's apartheid history behind. And for that, Nelson Mandela commands my respect. Salut!

Salam. I prefer Lady Khadijah as role model. As for me, she is a good leader even though she is a woman. Woman also can be a good leader as well as a good wife and mother. I hope I can be like Lady Khadijah. She was the first wife of Prophet Muhammad SAW. Prophet Mohammad SAW was twenty-five, while Khadijah had reached her forty. She was a widow and twice married. He was at the peak of his youth. Impressed by Muhammad’s honesty and moral character, she sends a relative to propose marriage. They were married for twenty five years until her death.

She is the mother of believers because she was the first person to embrace Islam. Through every persecution, Khadijah binti Khuwailid was his sole companion and helper. Khadijah played a major contribution in the establishment and spread of the Islamic civilization.
‘Aishah RA said: “I never felt jealous of any of the wives of the Prophet SAW as I did of Khadijah, although she died before he married me, because of what I heard him say about her.”
Khadijah lived as an honorable, free woman and died as a merciful believing woman, for the Prophet SAW said after her death: "Allah has not blessed me with a woman like Khadijah: she believed in me at a time when people were disbelievers; she comforted me by her money at a time when people prohibited me; and Allah has blessed me with children from her, amongst all of my wives."
Thus, I choose her as my idol because of her responsibility and sacrifice as wife of Prophet Muhammad.

Hadith the Holy Prophet (saw);
‘Love of Abu Bakr (ra) and gratitude to him are a duty on everyone
of my Ummah’

Sayidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq is one of the leaders that I admire most. Sayidina Abu Bakr As-Siddiq was the closest Companion to the Prophet a.s. He was the first caliph of Islam.He was also one of the first men to convert to Islam, and was chosen by the Prophet as his companion on the hijrah to Medina.
Abu Bakr is very calm and wise. This can be seen, when everyone was shocked with the news of the death of the Prophet, he remained calm and he reminds all of them with the verse in al-Qur'an. Hearing this, the Muslim came back to their awareness and the situation was brought under control.
After being elected, Sayidina Abu Bakr made one of the most famous and meaningful speeches in the history of Islam.
‘O People, I have indeed been appointed over you, though I am not the best among you. If I do well then help me; and if I act wrongly then correct me. Truthfulness is synonymous with fulfilling the truth, and lying is tantamount to treachery. The weak among you is deemed strong by me, until I return to them what is rightfully theirs, Allah Willing. And the strong among you is deemed weak by me, until I rightfully take from them what is rightfully someone else’s, Allah Willing. No group of people abandons Jihad in the way of Allah, except that Allah makes them suffer humiliation. And wickedness does not become widespread among a people, except that Allah inflicts them with widespread calamity. Obey me so long as I obey Allah and His Messenger. And if I disobey Allah and His Messenger, then I have no right to your obedience. Stand up now and pray, may Allah have mercy on you’. This is one of the examples of his humbleness and piety as a caliph.
Not just that, he faced many challenges during his caliphate time. Troubles emerged soon after his succession, threatening the unity and stability of the new community and state. His short caliphate was fully occupied the apostasy wars called the (Riddah).Various Arab tribes of locations of Hejaz and Nejd rebelled against the caliph and the new system. Some withheld the zakat, the alms tax, though they did not otherwise challenge Islam. Others apostasised outright and returned to their pre-Islamic religion and traditions, which revolved around idolatory and paganism. The tribes claimed that they had submitted to Muhammad and that with Muhammad's death, their duty was ended.
The most remarkable of all was that although Muhammad was proclaimed in the Quran as the 'last of all prophets', nevertheless, after his death, several men claimed such a position and had an enormous number of followers. Apostasy is a capital offense under traditional interpretations of Islamic law, and Abu Bakr declared war on the rebels. This was the start of the Ridda wars (Arabic for the Wars of Apostasy). From this it is proven that Abu Bakr as-Siddiq is a very amanah and responsible leader. He took all the challenges wisely and fairly. He always upholds the virtue and dignity of Islam no matter what it may take. All the values, shown by our first caliph should not be taken for granted and should be practiced among Muslim all over the world.

Another good leader besides our beloved prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is Suleyman 1 Kanuni, the son of Selim I. He was born on November 6, 1494, in Trabzon (Trebizond). Suleyman 1, in his time was regarded as the most significant and successful Islamic ruler in the world, by both Muslims and Europeans. He is asserted as embodying all the necessary characteristics of an Islamic ruler, the most important of which is justice. The reign of Suleyman in Ottoman and Islamic history is generally regarded as the period of greatest justice and harmony in any Islamic state. His military empire expanded greatly both to the east and west, and he threatened to overrun the heart of Europe itself. In Constantinople, he embarked on vast cultural and architectural projects. Istanbul in the middle of the sixteenth century was architecturally the most energetic and innovative city in the world. Suleyman undertook to make Istanbul the center of Islamic civilization. He began a series of building projects, including bridges, mosques, and palaces, that rivaled the greatest building projects of the world in that century. The greatest and most brilliant architect of human history was in his employ: Sinan. The mosques built by Sinan are considered the greatest architectural triumphs of Islam and possibly the world. They are more than just awe-inspiring; they represent a unique genius in dealing with nearly insurmountable engineering problems. While he was a brilliant military strategist and canny politician, he was also a cultivator of the arts. Suleyman's poetry is among the best poetry in Islam, and he sponsored an army of artists, religious thinkers, and philosophers that outshone the most educated courts of Europe. Under Suleyman, Istanbul became the center of visual art, music, writing, and philosophy in the Islamic world. Suleyman is considered the greatest of Ottoman sultans. He excelled as an administrator, earning the title Kanuni (“lawgiver”), and was an influential patron of the arts and sciences. At his death the Ottoman Empire controlled much of the Balkans, northern Africa, and the Middle East, and was the ruling power on the Mediterranean Sea.

Assalamualaikum mdm,

For me, besides our beloved prophet Muhammad(pbuh), I am amazed with the characteristics of his uncle, Abū Ṭālib ibn ‘Abd al-Muṭṭalib. Abu Talib was an Arab leader, the head of the clan of Bani Hashim and brother of the prophet Mohammad's father, 'Abdullah ibn 'Abdul Muttalib, who became severely ill and died before prophet Mohammad's birth. He had a high status and much respect among the Meccans, and owned a prosperous trading business. After Prophet Muhammad began preaching the message of Islam, members of the other Quraishite clans increasingly came to feel threatened by Muhammad. In attempts to quiet him, they would lean on Abu Talib to silence his nephew or control him. Despite these pressures, Abu Talib did nothing but support Prophet Muhammad and defend him from the other heads of the Quraysh. He sacrificed a lot to protect his nephew, therefore Islam, as well. The leadership characteristic of his that I admire is his integrity. He does not tempt easily for rewards or position as the Kafirun tries to use him to stop prophet's preaches. This particular characteristic is lacking in today's generation where people can do anything for money, and most of it is a thing that leads to destruction. Thus, one of the important things in order to be a good leader is to have integrity and must be transparent in doing whatever businesses.

In my opinion, one of the good example of the best leadership is Ir Dr. Fathi Yakan.He's a Head of Islamic Labor Front in Lebanon and prominent Islamic scholar.He was born in Tripoli,north of Lebanon, on the 9th of February 1933.With a Master in Engineering and Ph.D. in Arabic and Islamic Studies, Sheikh Yakan was among the pioneers of the Islamic movement in the 1950s. He was also the General Secretary of the Lebanese Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya from 1962 until 1992 when he won his seat in the Lebanese parliament. He is a key activist on the political stage, which was very clear during the 1996 elections.

Sheikh Yakan initiated a political effort between PM Fouad Saniora and his allies on the one hand and the opposition in a bid to end the rule crisis in the wake of the 2006 Israeli war on Lebanon. As a key figure in the Lebanese National Opposition, he headed prayers for Sunnis and Shiites on Friday, December 8, 2006 and called in his speech for the unity of Muslims against Israeli plots and schemes.

Dr. Yakan was married to Mrs Mona Haddad with whom he had established a private Islamic university (Al-Jinan University). He has four daughters and a son.
Sheikh Yakan was known for his support for resistance movements in Lebanon and the Arab and Islamic worlds.

He described the 2006 victory as one for Lebanon and the whole nation, Sunnis before Shiites, “because the project of the resistance is not only Lebanese project but a global one.”

The Islamic scholar also played a significant role in mending fences between political parties in the region. He was the mediator between the Islamic brotherhood in Syria and President Bachar Assad. He also played the same role between Syria and Turkey between 1998 and 1999, in the wake of the Syria-Turkey crisis.

He is the author of more than 35 books, some of them were translated into many languages, including:
How do we call for Islam? Towards a unified global Islamic Movement. What does “I’m a Muslim” mean? or also known as “Maza Ya'ni Intimai Ila Islam”.

Ir Dr Fathi Yakan passed away on 13th Jun 2009

From the characteristic mention,he is one of the contemporary leader that have my attention. Although he's a successful engineer, but he never take for granted his duty as daie and vicegerent on this world. Nowadays its very rare for us to have professionals get involve in Islamic field,that's the reason he impressed me more.

Hadith the Holy Prophet (saw);
‘Love of Abu Bakr (ra) and gratitude to him are a duty on everyone
of my Ummah’

Sayidina Abu Bakr as-Siddiq is one of the leaders that I admire most. Sayidina Abu Bakr As-Siddiq was the closest Companion to the Prophet a.s. He was the first caliph of Islam.He was also one of the first men to convert to Islam, and was chosen by the Prophet as his companion on the hijrah to Medina.
Abu Bakr is very calm and wise. This can be seen, when everyone was shocked with the news of the death of the Prophet, he remained calm and he reminds all of them with the verse in al-Qur'an. Hearing this, the Muslim came back to their awareness and the situation was brought under control.
After being elected, Sayidina Abu Bakr made one of the most famous and meaningful speeches in the history of Islam.
‘O People, I have indeed been appointed over you, though I am not the best among you. If I do well then help me; and if I act wrongly then correct me. Truthfulness is synonymous with fulfilling the truth, and lying is tantamount to treachery. The weak among you is deemed strong by me, until I return to them what is rightfully theirs, Allah Willing. And the strong among you is deemed weak by me, until I rightfully take from them what is rightfully someone else’s, Allah Willing. No group of people abandons Jihad in the way of Allah, except that Allah makes them suffer humiliation. And wickedness does not become widespread among a people, except that Allah inflicts them with widespread calamity. Obey me so long as I obey Allah and His Messenger. And if I disobey Allah and His Messenger, then I have no right to your obedience. Stand up now and pray, may Allah have mercy on you’. This is one of the examples of his humbleness and piety as a caliph.
Not just that, he faced many challenges during his caliphate time. Troubles emerged soon after his succession, threatening the unity and stability of the new community and state. His short caliphate was fully occupied the apostasy wars called the (Riddah).Various Arab tribes of locations of Hejaz and Nejd rebelled against the caliph and the new system. Some withheld the zakat, the alms tax, though they did not otherwise challenge Islam. Others apostasised outright and returned to their pre-Islamic religion and traditions, which revolved around idolatory and paganism. The tribes claimed that they had submitted to Muhammad and that with Muhammad's death, their duty was ended.
The most remarkable of all was that although Muhammad was proclaimed in the Quran as the 'last of all prophets', nevertheless, after his death, several men claimed such a position and had an enormous number of followers. Apostasy is a capital offense under traditional interpretations of Islamic law, and Abu Bakr declared war on the rebels. This was the start of the Ridda wars (Arabic for the Wars of Apostasy). From this it is proven that Abu Bakr as-Siddiq is a very amanah and responsible leader. He took all the challenges wisely and fairly. He always upholds the virtue and dignity of Islam no matter what it may take. All the values, shown by our first caliph should not be taken for granted and should be practiced among Muslim all over the world.

I really admired Tunku Abdul Rahman ,our first Prime Minister of Malaysia. For my opinion,,he is the most talented leader in this world. On the other reason he is clever,productive,hardworking leader. He was tried his best to free our country from being colonized then we finally achieved it on 31st August 1957. he never giving up to undergo all the obstacles to have freedom of Malaysia. Furthermore,he also the good leader for Muslim. It is because he really take care of the welfare of Muslim as he built the PERKIM, which the organization that concentrate on the welfare of the Muslim Ummah. Then,he also active in sports. In conclusion, Tunku Abdul Rahman is the good leader that we should be honored to have him especially our young generations today.

Salam madam,
To me, Aishah(RA) was another good leader who I admire. The powerful influence exerted by Aishah(RA) in the early Islamic community had provides many others with inspiration and leadership. Through my reading, she was been labelled to be the only women in the whole history of Islam who so deeply understood the Islamic teachings and so convincingly explained them to others. Even the great companions of the Prophet(SAW) used to consult her in religious and doctrinal matters. Abu Musa Ashari(RA) once said that whenever the companions faced any problems in the matters of knowledge, their approaching Aishah(RA) for help was never been disappointed. Her talks are still read in literature courses, her legal pronouncements are studied in law schools, and her life and works have been examined by students of Muslim history for nearly 1,400 years. The Prophet has said that people should learn a portion of their religion from this noble lady (Aishah). This supports that no doubt Aishah(RA) had the most excellent legal expertise, sound knowledge and candid opinion among all the companions. Aishah(RA) also became the Hafizah who memorized the entire Quraan and has transmitted more than 2000 Hadith. She was also active in teaching, and as a teacher she had a clear persuasive manner of speech. Al-Ahnaf said,“I have heard speeches of Abu Bakr (RA) and Umar, Uthman and Ali (RA) up to this day, but I have not heard speech more persuasive and more beautiful from the mouth of any person than from the mouth of Aishah (RA).” According to Muhammad Ali Sabooni, Aishah(RA) was prepared by the Prophet(SAW) to become a scholarly model for Muslim women.

She was the most respected woman of her time and among the great Muslim woman leader that i adored the most. The life of Aishah(RA) is proof that a woman can be far more learned than men and that she can be the teacher of scholars and experts. Her life is also proof that the same woman can be very feminine and be a source of pleasure, joy and comfort to her husband. She is a great role model for us to imitate and apply her qualities in our family and our community.

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim… One of the greatest leaders I know that I would share in this column is Salahuddin al-Ayyubi. I noticed one of our friends has mentioned him and I think he is a very well-known leader in our history. From my point of view, when I read out his story I couldn’t say how much I appreciate his leadership. It is true that we are lacking of his characters day by day.
His real name is Salahuddin Yusuf bin Ayyub but he is known as Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi. There are many of his achievements in his life but I want to highlight upon his success in Crusades War. In within two days he managed to defeat the Crusades Army around the Jerusalem. He defended Jerusalem not for the sake of his pride but for the sake of his religion. That is what we are looking for in every leader. At some points people are obsessed with power and tend to deviate from the right path. It is different with Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi, he presented his whole life in serving himself to Allah s.w.t. Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi is very much respected among Christians Nobles especially King Richard. Even King Richard had praised him for being a noble prince and in fact he is the greatest leader in Muslim world at that time. Despite of different religion among them Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi always has his respect on King Richard. They exchanged gifts to portray their good relationship between each other.
If we look back and study on his keys to success it is basically because of his manner and the principles he held to. He is very eager when it comes to ‘jihad’. His soul, body and mind were all ignited in Islamic manner. He is a very down-to-earth as a person with high tolerance and practise ‘bersederhana’ in his spending. He didn’t give much attention to worldly matters and some said he didn’t leave a coin after his death. He even contributed his wealth to all the poor people at that time. In many of his stories I have read mentioned there is this one small box he would take a good care of in everywhere he went. Many people thought there were some money or expensive things he wanted to keep inside that box. To everyone surprise, there were a shroud sheet, and a few other things. He left inside there a will that said he wanted to be buried using the shroud sheet he had bought with his own money. Amazing! Not many people can do that. Come to think of it, he live in an era a distant long from our Prophet s.a.w but he can maintained such an attitude that many of us don’t. If only we have another Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi during this era Muslims would be an outstanding nation but Allah s.w.t knows what’s best for us. Now, Muslims are battling to earn back our position and insyaAllah one day we will become number one again.

Eveyone knows him,but what makes me chose him as one of the great leaders?
Tun Mahathir Mohamad is a retired Malaysian political figure. He was the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia. He held the post for 22 years from 1981 to 2003, making him Malaysia's longest-serving Prime Minister, and one of the longest-serving leaders in Asia. During his administration, he was considered to be one of Asia's most influential leaders.Tun Mahathir Mohamad has succesfully contributed a lot to our nation and he was the one who always think further during his days as Prime Minister,even till today.He contributed a ot in economy,and education. During his term in office, he was credited for engineering Malaysia's rapid modernisation.He is known also as father of modernization.These are few of his proud mega projects: the North-South Expressway,Multimedia Super Corridor, the planned capital city of Putrajaya, Johor's Port Tanjong Pelepas,Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the Bakun Dam in Sarawak, and the Petronas Towers.These projects have their own benefits to our economy especially, they yield a direct return to the economy, apart from just serving the national pride. Besides that, Tun Mahathir also did a good job in the education ministry. He, who always believed in the need for "education for the masses", give greater concern on maths and science, at high school level. English in maths and science is such a big issue.The public are against the idea,but if we think further as Tun Mahathir always do,this is an excellent step for us to develop ourself n prepare for the future.In a nutshell, why i adore him so much? It’s because he has the ability to lead others that makes me adore him.It’s because he is a frontier, the man who always think further,that makes me adore him.It’s because he got the superb brain and wonderful ideas on how to make our nation a sucessful developing country, that makes me adore him.It’s because he knows how to make things good or innovative(referring to all his projects),that makes me adore him.The most value that i adore is that,he has the determination in what he was doing,he ignore those bad critics,and he was brave enough to face the challenges that were coming to him in those days.All these values of him are the characteristics that a leader should have,thus I strongly believe that Tun Mahathir Mohamad is one of the great leaders on earth, and we should look up to him and try to value his best characteristics as a great leader.

In my opinion, one of the good example of the best leadership is Ahmad Hussein Deedat.(July ,1918-August 8,2005).Born in the Surat district of India,Ahmad Deedat had no recollection of his father until 1926. With no formal education and fighting of the extreme pangs of poverty, he went to South Africa in 1927 to be with be with his father. In a foreign land, a boy of nine with no formal schooling and command of the English Language began preparing for the role he was to play decades later without realizing it.However, lack of finance interrupted his schooling and at early age of about 16 he took on the first of many jobs in retailing.

The most significant of these was in 1936 where he worked at a Muslim owned store near a Christian seminary. The continually insults of the trainee missionaries hurled against Islam during their visits to the store infused a stubborn flame of desire within young man to counteract their false propaganda . As fate would have it, Ahmad Deedat look impatiently in the store of his Muslim and by pure chance he found out a book entitled Izharal-Haq, meaning the Truth revealed, this book recorded the techniques and enormous success of the efforts of Muslims in India in turning table against Christian missionary harassment during the British subjugation and rule of India. In particular the idea of holding debates had a profound effect on Ahmad Deedat.

Time had passed,and that little boy had become a Muslim apologist, writer, and public speaker of Indian South Africa descent. He was best known for his numerous inter-religious public debates with evangelical Christians, as well as pioneering video lectures, most of which centered around Islam, Christianity and the Bible. He also established the IPCI, an international Islamic missionary organization, he wrote several booklets on Islam and Christianity which were widely distributed by the organization. He was awarded the prestigious King Faizal Award in 1986 for his 50 years of missionary work. One focus of his work was providing Muslims with theological tools for defending themselves against active Proseltizing by Christian missionaries.He used English to get his message across to Muslim and the non-Muslim in the western world.

He is a Muslim Scholar with more than 5 decades of experience, amazingly he has more knowledge of Christianity than Islam and due to this Christian missionary thinks 100 times before debating with him. He with exact Ayat number, recites different quotes from Different Bibles each conflicting with each other which makes his opposite Christian missionary rethink his own religion. In South Africa where he live hundreds of people have entered Islam including large number of Christian Missionaries.

From the characteristics mention,he is one of the contemporary leader that have my attention. Although he had a face hardship since childhood, but he never forget his duty as daie and vicegerent on this world.

Salam, madam
Despite our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Saidina Abu Bakr as Siddiq is one of the person that had become a good leader. He was always a very close Companion of the Holy Prophet and he knew him better than any other man. He knew how honest and upright the Prophet was. Such knowledge of the Prophet made Abu Bakr be the first man to follow the message of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) . He was indeed the first adult male to accept Islâm. The Prophet(pbuh) told Abu Bakr what had happened at Mount Hira', he told him that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has revealed to him and made him His Messenger. When Abu Bakr heard this from the Prophet (pbuh) he did not stop to think, he at once became a Muslim.

The period of his caliphate covers two years, two months and fifteen days only. Nowadays, it can be considered as a short period for a leader to play their roles. Nevertheless, he manages to suppress the apostasy, the unification of Arabia and the conquests of greater parts of Iraq and Syria within the space of two years. For these achievements, Abu Bakr holds a unique position in the history of the world in general and the history of Islam in particular.

Abu Bakr as Siddiq has a great leadership skills. He able to deal with crises which requires him to have a multi-dimensional in character, being psychological, religious, political and international.

Abu Bakr surely a brave man. In the battle of Badr, Abu Bakr acted as a bodyguard of the Holy Prophet. In the battle of Uhud when there was confusion and other companions dispersed, Abu Bakr was the first to join the Holy Prophet. In the battle of Hunain when the other companions dispersed, Abu Bakr continued to attend the Holy Prophet.

He also is a saviour of Islam. After the death of the Prophet (pbuh), the Muslim community came to be threatened with danger from all sides. Abu Bakr piloted the crisis with his leadership skills.

Other than that, Abu Bakr helps the in preservation of the Holy Quran. He sponsored the compilation of the Mushaf, and in this way the Word of God was preserved for all times for the guidance of mankind.

The unique characteristics of Abu Bakr made him be a good leader. He had sacrificed a lot in order to fulfill his responsibilities. All leaders must know what are the strategies needed to protect their followers instead of protecting their self-achievements.

Salam, madam
Despite our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Saidina Abu Bakr as Siddiq is one of the person that had become a good leader. He was always a very close Companion of the Holy Prophet and he knew him better than any other man. He knew how honest and upright the Prophet was. Such knowledge of the Prophet made Abu Bakr be the first man to follow the message of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) . He was indeed the first adult male to accept Islâm. The Prophet(pbuh) told Abu Bakr what had happened at Mount Hira', he told him that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala has revealed to him and made him His Messenger. When Abu Bakr heard this from the Prophet (pbuh) he did not stop to think, he at once became a Muslim.

The period of his caliphate covers two years, two months and fifteen days only. Nowadays, it can be considered as a short period for a leader to play their roles. Nevertheless, he manages to suppress the apostasy, the unification of Arabia and the conquests of greater parts of Iraq and Syria within the space of two years. For these achievements, Abu Bakr holds a unique position in the history of the world in general and the history of Islam in particular.

In my opinion, another good example of the best leadership is Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, which
is the current and sixth president of Iran. He is the first non-cleric to be elected president of Iran in 24 years. Before he become a president, Ahmadinejad was still little known nationally and internationally, but his charisma and political skills first became evident during his tenure as Tehran's mayor. He imposed new cultural restrictions favored by the Islamic religious leaders, who really held the reins of power in Iran, shutting down Western fast-food restaurants and ordering the covering of billboard advertisements featuring English soccer star David Beckham.

He is very outspoken and intelligent person. On May 8, 2008, while addressing the Iranian Parliament, Ahmedinejad criticized the 60th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel. He called Israel a “stinking corpse”. He also had said that he did not hate the West but he just disagree with some of the things done by some politicians who are not honest and behave badly in the West."
Besides, he is also good at planning a strategy. Although many people and the environmentalist disagree with nuclear power-plants and nuclear weapons that had been done by Iran, for me, it is ok to has a good knowledge and technologies about nuclear field. We as Muslim do not know the propaganda of others religion and non-Muslim country. So, nuclear weapon that had been produced by Iran can be the best preparation for us to face a war. Muslim must not only depends on West weapons.
Mahmoud Ahmedinejad also has the ability to improve financial situation in Iran. In his first four years as a president, Iran's real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) reflected growth of the economy. Inflation and unemployment have also decreased under Ahmadinejad due to better economic management and ending the unsustainable spending and borrowing patterns of previous administrations.
In conclusion, a leader must be an intelligent person, out-spoken, productive and brave. Besides, a leader also must has the ability to face many challenge, the ability to improve financial situation and would try his best to raise Islam in this world.

In my viewpoint, the person that I really admire as a leader and establish the best leadership after our Prophet (pbuh) is Hassan Al-Banna. He was a schoolteacher and an Egyptian Islamic Modernist/Reformist.
While earlier Islamic Modernists had sought an accommodation of the positive elements of Western secular models, Hassan al-Banna believed that they had become a source of decadence and decay.Furthermore, he believed the West's malady was afflicting the Muslim world, weakening and corrupting it, and "anaesthetizing" its faith.
Therefore, in March 1928, Al-Banna launched the Society of the Muslim Brother with the aim of revitalizing that faith. The eventual objective was to establish a Government that ruled on the basis of Muslim values and norms. To help consecrate the Islamic order, Al-Banna called for banning all Western influences from education and ordered that all primary schools should be part of the mosques. He also wanted a ban on political parties and democratic institutions other than a Shura (Islamic-council), and wanted all government officials to have a religious study as main education.
At first, the society was only one of the numerous small Islamic associations that existed at the time but a decade later, it had 500,000 active members and as many sympathizers in Egypt alone, while its appeal was now felt in several other countries as well. The single most important factor that made this dramatic expansion possible was the organizational and ideological leadership provided by Al-Banna.
He endeavored to bring about the changes he hoped for through institution-building, relentless activism at the grassroots level. In addition to his day classes, he carried out his intention of giving night classes to his pupils' parents. He also preached in the mosque, and even in coffee-houses. In anchoring this organization into Egyptian society, Al-Banna relied on pre-existing social networks; in particular those built around mosques, Islamic welfare associations, and neighborhood groups. This weaving of traditional ties into a distinctively modern structure was at the root of his success. The materials, social and psychological support provided were instrumental to the movement's ability to generate enormous loyalty among its members and to attract new recruits. The services and organizational structure around which the society was built were intended to enable individuals to reintegrate into a distinctly Islamic setting, shaped by the society's own principles.
Rooted in Islam, Al-Banna's message tackled issues including colonialism, public health, educational policy, natural resources management, Marxism, social inequalities, Arab nationalism, the weakness of the Islamic world on the international scene, and the growing conflict in Palestine. By emphasizing concerns that appealed to a variety of constituencies, Al-Banna was able to recruit from among a cross-section of Egyptian society though modern-educated civil servants, office employees, and professionals remained dominant among the organization's activists and decision makers.
In conclusion, Al-Banna was a highly effective organizer and charismatic leader. Consequently his hierarchical movement and its model spread throughout the Muslim world. Hassan al-Banna is known to have great impact in the modern Islamic thought. Hence, he is a good role model as a Muslim leader. Every Muslim is subjected as a servant of Allah and a caliph in this world. Thus, one must have well-balance of worldly affairs and Islamic values.

Norhidayah Sukur-section 8
Besides our beloved prophet Muhammad (pbuh),I found that her lovely wife Khadijah bint Khuwaylid is one example of woman best leader ever. Khadijah bint Khuwaylid was the first wife of the prophet Muhammad. Today, women in Islam are viewed as strange, oppressed, and even frightening. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I intend to post at least one biography of a great Muslim woman in the Islamic history. She was the daughter of Khuwaylid ibn Asad and Fatimah bint Za'idah and belonged to the clan of Banu Hashim. She is important in Islam as Muhammad's first wife, and one of the "mothers of the believers”.
What is the important aspect that we could be seen through our beloved wife of Prophet were her amazing characters. Those of us Muslim women should take it as inspiration to help perfect our characters in order to survive in that very challenging moment.She was one of the noblest women around, coming from a very prominent family. She was also quite beautiful and the holder of a considerable amount of wealth.. Being a woman doesn’t mean you have to stay at home and doing the entire house chore 24/7. She used to feed and clothe the poor, assist her relatives financially, and provide for the marriage of those of her kin who could not otherwise have had the means to marry. Then, successfully managed her father's business interests and preserved the family's fortune. That is the perfect example for our Muslim woman today to become a good leader.
On the other hand, without any doubt she love her husband whole-heartedly based on her love to Allah. When her husband received his first revelation from the Archangel Gabriel, she was the first person among both male and females to convert to Islam. She did not hesitate to embrace Islam at all, trusting to her husband's teachings. She bore patiently in the face of persecution to which her revered husband and his small band of believers were exposed at the hands of the Quraish, sacrificing her vast wealth to promote Islam. She remained at Prophet’s side and supported him throughout his mission to spread Islam.
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) never stopped loving Khadijah, and although he married several more wives in later years and loved them all, it is clear that Khadijah always had a special place in his heart. Yet, I can’t find someone more powerful, more spiritually uplifting, more awe inspiring as Khadijah (RA). She become my inspiration to be a woman that doing all her responsibility to Allah, embracing Islam completely,and giving her love only for her family and husband.

Salam.

In my point of view, I like the most Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as my example for the best leader. In general, Ahmadinejad is the son of a blacksmith.He was born in 28th October 1956 in Garmsar, near Tehran. He holds PhD in Traffic and Transport from Tehran's University of Science and Technology, where he was a lecturer. Ahmadinejad is married with two sons and a daughter.

Now, I want to elaborate how Ahmadinejad become the sixth President of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Actually, Ahmadinejad was an obscure figure when he was appointed mayor of Tehran in the spring of 2003, and was not even that well known when won the second round run-off vote in 2005 presidential election. His rise to power and landside victory in 2005 surprised the international community, which anticipated a win for the incumbent president Ali Akhbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei authorized his presidency on 3rd August 2005. Ahmadinejad kissed Khamenei’s hand during the ceremony to show his loyalty. Since then, Ahmadinejad has developed a reputation internationally.

As a Muslim leader, Ahmadinejad lived in a simple house. Where his supporters consider him a “simple man” that leads to a “modest life”. As a president, he wanted to continue living in the same house in Tehran like before it used to be, living with his family. Ahmadinejad also refused the V.I.P seat on the Presidential plane and that he replaced it with a cargo plane. Other than that, he uses inexpensive carpets instead of the antique Persian carpets in the Presidential Palace. It is showed the humility in Ahmadinejad’s characteristics.

Moreover, Ahmadinejad reportedly spent no money on his Presidential Campaign. He was backed by powerful conservatives who used their network of mosques to mobilize support for him. Ahmadinejad held his first cabinet meeting in the Imam Reza shrine at Mashhad, an act perceived as "pious".

Furthermore, Ahmadnejad calls himself a friend of the people. He has made some small-scale concessions to moderates since 2005.He often speaks of women as being at the heart of Iranian society. He talks of empowering them and makes much of his plan to provide insurance for housewives and share Iran's oil wealth with poorer families. He said he would not be confrontational in enforcing a campaign in Tehran to insist women obeyed Iran's strict Islamic dress codes and has also allowed women into major sporting events for the first time since 1979.He also has a reputation for living a simple life and has campaigned against corruption.

Last but not least, Ahmadinejad is one of my icon to be a best leader one day. I'm really adored how he managed to be a sixth President of the Islamic Republic of Tehran. All his characters like humility, loyalty, competence and inspiration catch my attention of him. He is being able to well-balanced in worldly affairs and hereafter. Thus, that is why I choose him as my inspire to be a great leader one day.

Thank you.

For me,the leader that i respect the most besides Prophet Muhammad S.A.W is Sayyidina Ali Ibn Abi Talib.He was the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.When Prophet Muhammad reported receiving a divine revelation, he was the first child to accept his message, dedicating his life to the cause of Islam.Sayyidina Ali was the fourth and final of Khulafa' Ar-Rusyidin.
For the ten years that Prophet Muhammad led the community in Madinah, Ali was extremely active in his service, leading parties of warriors on battles, and carrying messages and orders. Ali took part in the early raids against caravans from Makkah and later in almost all the battles fought by the early Muslim community.In Muslim culture,Sayyidina Ali is respected for his courage, knowledge, belief, honesty, unbending devotion to Islam, deep loyalty to Prophet Muhammad, equal treatment of all Muslims and generosity in forgiving his defeated enemies. Sayyidina Ali is respected not only as a warrior and leader, but as a writer and religious authority. Last but not least, to be a good leader, we can't only have the power,but also the knowledge in order to have the great impact in our leadership.Sayyidina Ali is one of the leader that should be the example to us to be a leader..

I believe that an individual can be moulded into good person when he or she is exposed to a brilliant role model who shows good and practical examples. Thus, the first name that crossed my mind when I heard the word 'leader' is the third of Prophet Muhammad's successors, Uthman bin 'Affan.

Uthman was known for his generosity and modesty. It was told that he even before his conversion into Islam, he would freely give money and help to those in need. I'm sure that all people that had been helped by him felt the warmness of his pure heart. He didn't fake it, but he did it because it's in his nature. I personally adore his kindness.

He embraced Islam during the time where the men of Mecca would torture and abuse whoever converted into Islam. Despite the agony that he suffered, he never give up Islam. In my opinion, this is the kind of leader who stood up for his right and he had chosen to be brave because he knew what he did was right.

Even I was not there to see he rules a big number of people, I can imagine that he never disappoints the citizen. Moreover, this is the thing that I like about Uthman. In spite of his wealth, he lived simply and would often sleep, wrapped in a blanket, on the sand of the mosque. As for me, leader is not a matter power and wealth alone, what matters most is how a leader tries to be sincere and do the best in all things that he does.

We can also be good leaders. How do we do that? Start with being a good follower first. A good leader is a good follower! And because of Uthman, AFFAN is going to be the name of my son in the future!

Salam madam,
In my opinion,besides our great Prophet(saw) I really adore Ibn Sina for his tremendous contribution especially in medicine field. His full name is Hussain ibn Abdullah ibn Hassan ibn Ali ibn Sina. He was born around 980 in Afshana, near Bukhara, which was his mother's hometown. He started studying philosophy by reading various Greek, Muslim and other books on this subject and learnt logic and some other subjects from a famous philosopher of the time. While still young, he attained such a degree of expertise in medicine that his renown spread far and wide. At the age of 17, he was fortunate in curing the King of Bukhhara, of an illness in which all the well-known physicians had given up hope. Ibn Sina was the most famous physician, philosopher, encyclopaedist, mathematician and astronomer of his time. His major contribution to medical science was his famous book al-Qanun, known as the "Canon" in the West. His important original contribution includes such advances as recognition of the contagious nature of phthisis and tuberculosis, distribution of diseases by water and soil, and interaction between psychology and health. In addition, he was also the first to describe meningitis and made rich contributions to anatomy, gynaecology and child health. Besides that, Ibn Sina also contributed to mathematics, physics and music. He made several astronomical observations and devised a contrivance similar to the vernier to increase the precision of instrumental readings. In physics, his contribution comprised the study of different forms of energy, heat, light and mechanical. Moreover, Ibn Sina also had a wonderful talent in making poet.All in all, Ibn Sina is another great leader and he amazed me with his capabilities in many knowledge.May Allah bless him.

In my opinion, another good example of the best leadership is our khalifa Abu Bakr As-Siddiq (Abdullah ibn Abi Qahafa). Actually he was the Prophet Muhammad's father-in-law, and one of his closest companions and advisers. Abu Bakr succeeded to the Prophet's political and administrative functions, thereby initiating the Office of the Caliphate. Besides, Abū Bakr purportedly was the first male convert to Islam. Muhammad conferred on him the title as-Siddiq, the veracious, for his power to discern the truth. Upon Muhammad's death he became the first Muslim ruler (632–634), regarded in Sunni Islam as the first of the Rashidun (righteously guided Caliphs). In Shia Islam, he is regarded as a usurper and political opportunist. His caliphate lasted two years and three months, during which time he consolidated the Muslim state. Upon the death of Muhammad, some tribes rebelled, and in return he fought the Ridda wars against these Arab tribes to establish Islamic rule over all of Arabia. He also invaded Sassanid Persian and Byzantine Empire conquering the lands of Syria and Iraq. Abu Bakr is also well known for collecting the verses of the Quran and putting them into the final book read by Muslims today. Many Hafiz (a person who commits the Quran to memory) had died in the previous wars so he was concerned about the preservation of the Quran. He also stopped the Quran being translated into different versions of Arabic.

Abu Bakr was to Sunni Islam the first post-puberty free male to accept Muhammad's prophethood though Shias maintain Abu Talib and other adult members of Muhammad's immediate blood family were. Some Sunnis accept Abu Talib may have been the first adult male convert, other dispute he ever converted. In addition, Abu Bakr was the first person outside the family of Muhammad to openly become a Muslim. His conversion brought the most benefit to Islam. Abu Bakr's dakwah brought many people to Islam. He persuaded his intimate friends to convert to Islam. He presented Islam to others in such a way that many of his friends opted for Islam. In Medina, Muhammad decided to construct a mosque. A piece of land was chosen and the price of the land was paid for by Abu Bakr. Muslims constructed a mosque named Al-Masjid al-Nabawi at the site and Abu Bakr also took part in construction

In 624 Abu Bakr was involved in the first battle between the Muslims and the Quraysh of Mecca known as the Battle of Badr, but he did not fight instead acting as one of the guards of Muhammad's tent. In 625 he participated in the Battle of Uhud which ended in a rout by the majority of the Muslims. Before the battle begun, Abu Bakr's son ‘Abd ar-Rahman ibn Abi Bakr who was still non-Muslim and was fighting from the side of the Quraysh, came forward and threw down a challenge for a duel. Abu Bakr accepted the challenge but was stopped by Muhammad. His son later converted to Islam and gained fame during the Muslim conquest of Syria as a fierce warrior. Later, in 627 he participated in the Battle of the Trench and also in the Battle of Banu Qurayza. In 628 he participated in Treaty of Hudaybiyyah and was made one of the witnesses over the pact.

In 630 when Muslim armies rushed for the Conquest of Mecca, Abu Bakr was a part of the army. Before the conquest of Mecca his father Uthman Abu Qahafa converted to Islam. In 630 he was part of Battle of Hunayn and Siege of Ta'if. He was part of the Muslim army in the campaign of Tabuk under Muhammad's command and he was reported to have given all his wealth for the preparation of this expedition.

From the criteria mentioned, he is the leader that able to catch my attention. He is well-balanced in worldly affairs and hereafter that supposedly have by Muslim leaders. In conclusion, Abu Bakr As-Siddiq is the best leader that we should take his good characteristics to become excellent leader in the future.

In my opinion, I tend to choose Saidina Ali ibn Abu Talib as the another great leader. It is because , he also has a good character that we should follow as role model. It is a little bit story about him. Ali was the only person born in the Kaaba sanctuary in Mecca, the holiest place in Islam .His father was Abu Talib ibn Abd al-Muttalib and his mother was Fatima bint Asad , but he was raised in the household of Muhammad, who himself was raised by Abu Talib, Muhammad's uncle. When Muhammad reported receiving a divine revelation, Ali was the first child to accept his message. Ali was appointed caliph by the Sahaba (Muhammad's companions) in Medina after the assassination of the third caliph, Uthman ibn Affan. He encountered defiance and civil war during his reign. In 661, Ali was attacked while praying in the mosque of Kufa, dying a few days later. In Muslim culture, Ali is respected for his courage, knowledge, belief, honesty, unbending devotion to Islam, deep loyalty to Muhammad, equal treatment of all Muslims and generosity in forgiving his defeated enemies, and therefore is central to mystical traditions in Islam such as Sufism. Ali retains his stature as an authority on Qur'anic exegesis, Islamic jurisprudence and religious thought. Ali holds a high position in almost all Sufi orders which trace their lineage through him to Muhammad. Ali's influence has thus continued throughout Islamic history. From his story, we can see that Saidina Ali is very intelligent and great person in treat people and good in manage his responsible to country in that time. So, that is why I choose him.

Salam Madam,
I'm sorry because of my late assignment.I hope you can accept myy assignment.I admit it's my fault.
In my opinion,I choose Al-Khawarizmi as a good example of leadership.
Abū Abdallāh Muḥammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī was a mathematician, astronomer and geographer, a scholar in the House of Wisdom in Baghdad.
His Kitab al-Jabr wa-l-Muqabala presented the first systematic solution of linear and quadratic equations. He is considered the founder of algebra, a credit he shares with Diophantus. In the twelfth century, Latin translations of his work on the Indian numerals, introduced the decimal positional number system to the Western world.He revised Ptolemy's Geography and wrote on astronomy and astrology.
His contributions had a great impact on language. "Algebra" is derived from al-jabr, one of the two operations he used to solve quadratic equations. Algorism and algorithm stem from Algoritmi, the Latin form of his name. His name is the origin of (Spanish) guarismo and of (Portuguese) algarismo, both meaning digit.
In Ibn al-Nadīm's Kitāb al-Fihrist we find a short biography on al-Khwārizmī, together with a list of the books he wrote. Al-Khwārizmī accomplished most of his work in the period between 813 and 833. After the Islamic conquest of Persia, Baghdad became the centre of scientific studies and trade, and many merchants and scientists from as far as China and India traveled to this city, as did Al-Khwārizmī. He worked in Baghdad as a scholar at the House of Wisdom established by Caliph al-Maʾmūn, where he studied the sciences and mathematics, which included the translation of Greek and Sanskrit scientific manuscripts.Al-Khwārizmī's contributions to mathematics, geography, astronomy, and cartography established the basis for innovation in algebra and trigonometry. His systematic approach to solving linear and quadratic equations led to algebra, a word derived from the title of his 830 book on the subject, "The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing"
On the Calculation with Hindu Numerals written about 825, was principally responsible for spreading the Indian system of numeration throughout the Middle East and Europe. It was translated into Latin as Algoritmi de numero Indorum. Al-Khwārizmī, rendered as (Latin) Algoritmi, led to the term "algorithm".
Some of his work was based on Persian and Babylonian astronomy, Indian numbers, and Greek mathematics.
Al-Khwārizmī systematized and corrected Ptolemy's data for Africa and the Middle east. Another major book was Kitab surat al-ard ("The Image of the Earth"; translated as Geography), presenting the coordinates of places based on those in the Geography of Ptolemy but with improved values for the Mediterranean Sea, Asia, and Africa.
