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 :-)
