A good leader must has certain characteristics that make him or her different from others. Trusthworthiness, responsible, critical thingking person, a good decision maker are some of criteria of a good leader.For a family, a father is a leader of the family. The father should has a plan for his family in order to be success in here and here after. To be clear, we as a muslim should lead ourselves, basically because we are the leader to our body, mind and soul.

Leadership means the ability of someone to lead and influence others in order to achieve his/her goals. To become a leader, someone must have a practice and some experiences in many processes.

Based on wikipedia, leadership can be described as "a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task. Leaders are not born but they must face and experience many challenging things and obstacles.

Besides, a leader also must be a role model to others and show good characteristics such as responsible, punctual, friendly, honest and others. A leader also must have organized time and he should ready all the time in order to handle others problem. A leader should have a creative thinking to determine the best choice to choose the best solution to solve any problem.

A leader also must have full of knowledge. One of the ways to gain knowledge is by reading. A leader should have a good reading habit due to have exposure on many

Leading is crucial. All people in this world are leaders at least they are a leader for themselves. As a muslim, we are encouraged to lead ourself and protect Islam from being blackened by other religious.

p/s: I would like to thank to mdm yati for sharing many stories and videos during our class. I also want to ask forgiveness if I have made something that make you feel discomfort throughout this semester.

Good leaders are made not born. Thousands of books and millions of articles describe about how to acquire a good leadership qualities.

From my point of view a good leader should have a proper time management. Time waits no one. People live in the present will worry and plan for their future. History is the only study of past in order to have a better life for the next coming days. One of the criteria of good time management is to have a planner. This planner will help a person to plan his schedule or daily activities very well. However we should not have two planners at the same time as we may overlap or miss other activities and the current activities.

Besides, a good leadership qualities is seek first to understand, then to be understood. In our daily conversations, sometimes it is better to listen deeply to others first, then we reply our idea next in a polite manner. By doing this, we have build a strong relationship and also true communications between us with our friends. In addition, a leader in an organization should listen first to their workers, about the problem faced in order to increase the productivity of the company. Stephen R.Covey in his book ,Living The 7 Habit mentioned that "Silence is Golden" and there is other quote said that "Speech is Silver".

Furthermore, a good leader must have good communication skills. For instance, in an organization such big company, even though a boss has strong mission, vision and goals, even solid budgets, if he cannot easily or effectively convey his ideas to the stakeholders and the workers, his potentials such as a waste. Therefore, as a student that will become a future leader of our country, we should train ourselves to improve our English language in order to perfect our communication skills for the sake of future life.

As a conclusion, leadership class which is held in IIUM provide such a great benefits me personally. I learn a lot during this class in order to improve my soft skill. Besides, I would like to thank to Madam NorHayati for being such a great facilitator when sharing her experiences during the discussion in the class.

Leadership the activity of leading a group of people or organization or the ability to do this. In its essence, leadership in organization role involves the establishing a clear vision, sharing that vision with others so that they will follow willingly, providing the information, knowledge and methods to realize that vision and coordinating and balancing the conflicting interests of all members or stakeholders.

A leader comes to the forefront in case of crisis, and is able to think and act in creative ways in difficult situations. Unlike management, leadership flows from the core of personality and cannot be taught, although it may be learned and may be enhanced through coaching or mentoring.

Asnawi said...

The leadership mean a group, organization or country that being lead by a leader, while the leader is the person who leads or commands that group. As an example a captain who control their comrades in a ship. The good leadership when have a good leader. A leader has a big responsibility to control the group. The leader must have good characteristics such as kind, contingency thinker and intelligence to do good thing and prevent bad thing. In Islam the good role model is our prophet Muhammad s.a.w(pbuh) because he is a good man and also good servant to Allah s.w.t .That why we must take our prophet as our role model in our life. The leadership is important that why our country does having voting process, why we doing such thing like that? Because to make sure we choose the best leader in order to conduct our country. Besides, if our country not organize properly and the country are not stable the enemy will take the opportunity to invade and conquer our country especially zionis this is what we can observe in east country such as in Iraq,Gaza and Palestine.

Leadership is the act of leading others. Being a leader requires special leadership characteristics, style and skills in order to connect with those who are charged with guiding and directing. In Sun Tzu's "Art of War", the Chinese military general writes about leadership and what it requires. "The masterful leader cultivates the moral law, and strictly adheres to proper method and discipline, thus it is in his power to control success", Tzu wrote.

Some of good leadership personalities are self confident, dependable, enthusiastic, good judgement, initiative, courage and endurance. Besides,a good leader has the ability to make decisions that everyone can understand. In addition, a common trait among successful leaders is the ability to inspire others. According to Lewin, the leaders that use on autocratic style make decisions without consulting others, while the democratic style gets other people involved in the decision making process.

To conclude, being an excellent leader can't be achieved in a short times but it takes number of training and experience. Hence, trough trainings and experinces and most of all, persistence, we can became a great leader especially toward ourselves.

Muhammad Edan said...

What is leadership? Leadership is the ability to control and influences others work towards the accomplishments of specific goals with excellent way. The great leader in the world is the leader that can be a good leader in their self and good leader in the community. Leaders are very important to motivate their subordinates to achieve the visions. Every leader should put a trust in their subordinates to be led by them. The leader who does not have trust from their subordinates is called a failed leader. A true leader will put the blame on their self if there is a failure in the organization and not pointing at another.
According to Keith Davis, “Leadership is the ability to persuade others to seek defined objectives enthusiastically. It is the human factor which binds a group together and motivates it towards goals.”
Shahidan 1114169 <€-&>

nur hazwani said...

Leadership is a process of influence others. Leader is a person who can influence other and superior position within its fields.

A hadith on leadership
Behold! every one of you is a leader and you shall be asked about those you lead. Imam is a leader over the people and shall be asked about them; man is a leader of the house and shall be asked about his household; a woman is a leader over her children and she shall be asked about them.
Reported by Abdullah Ibn Omar in Bukhari and Muslim

From this hadith, we can see that, we as a leader at least toward ourselves. This is show how important a of leadership in Islam.
There are some characteristic to become a good leader which are creative, emotional intelligent, brave and wit. A leader must be creative in making decision. This is because a creative leader makes the follower to believe in him and confident to make him as a leader. Secondly, emotional intelligent is a ability to manage our relationship and ourselves effectively. Leader should have good relation with all people, especially subordinates. Besides, leader also can differentiate between private matter and works. Next, leader must be brave to face all challenges in all circumstances and able to make decision even in unexpected conditions. He is dare to bear the risk. Wit is a quickly understand a situation and leader must be able to make good decision in a short time.

In Holy Quran, there is also mention about leadership in surah Al –Baqarah verses 34. From this veses, we can know that Allah have given knowledge to Adam as the power to be a leader in the earth. Besides, a leader must have a competence , skill and experience to fulfill the responsibility.

In conclusion, a leader must have good quality on mental, physical, and spiritual aspect as mention in the Quran about story of Thalut who is Allah had taken him as leader according to his knowledge and body power.
NUR HAZWANI BINTI ZAKARIA(1123856)

Thaqif Othman said...

There are many definitions about leadership itself. When people talk about leadership, there must be an imagination in our mind the images of the leaders all around the world. As a Muslim, we should bear in mind that our Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is the greatest leader in the world.
From my point of view and from what I have read before, leadership is the act of empowering those around you to achieve their life goals. It is also the ability to work with a group of individuals to create a team focused on specific goals. As leaders, they must have integrity, humility and openness to change. Great leaders combine passion and optimism with a realistic assessment of the facts at hand besides they also should be passionate about what they do and inspire others to share that passion. A leader has the ability to make decisions and act to get things done while motivating others to do the same.
To be good leaders, they need to listen to others first instead of making the decision. It is vital to listen, to understand first. It is because when you listen, you get insight and understanding you wouldn’t have had. So, when you listen first, you will make a better decision. Charles has stated that, leadership has less to do with walking in front and leading the way than it does with listening to the needs of the peoples of the company and meeting them. The other story related to this skill is, when Mike Garrett became president of Georgia Power, people asked him what his plans were in his new role. He said. “I’m going to go in and basically just listen for the first couple of months. I’m going to see what’s happening. If I were to go in and start to lay out a vision and a plan without listening, I wouldn’t have near the effectiveness, near the trust to do what I want to do. I always go in listening first.”
From the leadership cases that I have attended throughout this whole semester, there are many things that I have learnt. For me this class has achieved the early objective which is to nurture the skills of leadership among the student because for me leadership not just to influence others by our good deed, but also taking others good deed also is a must. Leadership is about two way process to achieve the same goal.
As a conclusion, I hope that I will meet Madam Yati again in my parenting class and I am pretty sure that all of my class members also hope the same thing. Thank you for everything.

Leadership is defined as a process to show our ability to take resposiblity for a certain task. Good leader are made not born. If we have desire, we can be an effective leader. By hook or by crook, we must have an creative skill to influence others. As a perfect leader, we must have a good moral value, so that they able to follow and respect us.Although leadership is certainty a form of power, it is illegal to influence others with his power.
Allah S.W.T also mentioned in Al-Quran, that is responsible of Muslim as a slave and khalifah. We can see that Allah emphasis the word khalifah, so that we should have to fulfill that responsibility. To inspire others, there are certain things you must be,know or do.

Leadership means the capacity to translate vision into reality and leader means those who empower others. In other term, leadership is the ability to lead which means to guide, direct, and influence other people to accomplish its goal. Thus, a good objective of leadership is to help those who are doing poorly to do well and to help those who are doing well to do even better. If our action inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, we are leading.

In Islam, we have the best role models to follow both as leaders and followers. Rasulullah S.A.W. was the best leader that ever existed and we can never be like him but his characters and manners are so simple yet powerful that they are a guide for people till the end of times.


A real and good leader will do anything sincerely for his goal and his people while disregarding his own personal needs because "Sincerity Is The Fruit Of Iman". In addition, the quality of a true believer and a great leader is that he holds himself responsible instead of others. If the situation goes wrong, he accepts full responsibility of the actions and tries to rectify the situation, not accusing or oppressing his subordinates. Moreover, if a leader loves for his follower what he loves for himself, then he will be kind, considerate, generous, easy going and compassionate. This means that he will have all the qualities that are needed to unite hearts to him. Besides all these qualities, a great leader must have certain skills and power so that they can lead other people. There are two most important skills which are conceptual skills and practical skills.

In conclusion, as a Muslim, we have to be the best follower or leader depending on our personalities and role in life. Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. said Allah loves a servant who when performing a task does so skillfully. If we truly belong to Allah S.W.T., we will be a wonderful leader and a great follower depending on our role.

From my point of view, leadership means a quality that owns by an individual which enable him or her to hold responsibilities well. However, leadership is not limited to certain aspect only. It covers our life as a whole. We need to have leadership skills in our life, in order to go through all stages of our life, as a student, employee, son, parents and etc. Thus, having leadership quality is a must. As Muslim, we believe that all of us are leaders at least towards ourselves.
In order to be a good leader towards others, we must be a good leader towards ourselves first. Having an excellent time management, ability to make good decision according to the circumstances, knowledge, trustworthy, good communication skills, self-confidence and the most important thing, being pious(implementation of Al- Quran and Sunnah in life)are some of the qualities that we should have in order to be a good leader towards ourselves as well as to others.
Therefore, in order to have all these qualities, we have to start implementing them in our life now, so that one day we will be able to be a successful leader, not just towards ourselves, but also towards our ummah, InsyaALLAH.

Leadership has been described as a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task. As a leader, they need to take the responsibilities of the others. As we know, the best leader that we can see is our prophet Muhammad s.a .w. Some of the characteristics that must have to the laeder are honesty, inspiration, patience and humality. In our country, there are many people that we can admired as a leader such as Tun Dr Mahathir, Tuan Guru Nik Abdul aziz, Tunku Abdul Rahman and others. Leadership in Islam is a trust (amanah). According to the prophet s.a. w. ,muslim must appoint a leader during a trip, select a leader (imam) to lead the prayer and choose a leader for other group activities. For example, husband is a leader in the family and the wife will be a his assistant. So, it compliment each other. Before we become a leader to others, we need to become a leader to ourselves first by managing time properly, foresight and leading.-1123608-;)

Assalamualaikum.

In my own understanding, leadership is defined as the ability to guide people for the sake of betterment. A good leader is one who has the wisdom and charisma to influence others and eventually bring them towards success. The best example of a leader is undoubtedly Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He was chosen by our sole Creator, Allah SWT to lead the Ummah towards the best life, as in His teachings. His journey was not without obstacles but he never faltered until he completed his given task. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a great leader to the first Islamic country, Medina. Leaders today, no matter for a large country or a small family, should take upon his example because to me, he is the best definition of leadership.

Everyone should have leadership skill. Leadership is not an easy thing that can comes out of man's head. Some may think leadership skills only the leader in the group can have. It is totally wrong, in ourself we should have this basic skill to survive in modern world today. This is because when we get married we will automatically become a leader in our family.
When comes to world leader, you must have the ability to influence others. An effective leader can make a respect from others by being confident and having a good charisma.
Teamwork skill and communication skill also implied in leadership skill. The best way to learn this skill we must have a real life experience being as a leader.

atiqah said...

Leadership is a process by which a person influences other to accomplish an objective, task and directs other.It is the skill that one must learn in order to be a good leader. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience.

There are a few characteristic that a person should have in order to to leads others. They must posses good communication skill, know how to control his or her team mate and manage their time wisely.

In a nutshell, a leader does not mean to be a big boss. Its all about he responsibilities that ones hold to handle everything. We are all going to be a leader. Even we are not going to lead a country or a big company, but sooner or later we are going to lead our own family. A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

What does leadership means to me?

Leadership from my point of view is an inner skills that everyone has in themselves even without their knowing.It is a skills that will develop as you grow and yes it takes a lot of times to grow it.

During my high school times, I always admire those students who are very excellent in their academic and at the same time are also very good with their soft skills. In facts, after entering the campus life, I'm meeting more and more people with different ways and styles. It somehow helps to open up my eyes and mind.

These are the examples of leadership. Successful people are always good with their self management and I believe they are also good in managing their life here and at the same time preparing for the hereafter. As for me, the true quality of leadership is how we managed our own life first before we lead others.I don't want to talk about leadership in it big scope but then I'm trying to focused it towards self management first because if we can't manage ourselves then how are we going to lead others.

Time management,decision making, and the other element will be mixing up well in order to build in the quality of leadership in ourselves. However, we need to remember that all of these cannot be build up in just one day and it needs a lot of training,times and experiences as everyday is a new day and a new day has its own challenges for us to cope up with.

In conclusion, it is not easy to be a leader but just believe that you can always be. Don't ever stop trying. "A winner never quit,a quitter never win."

fatimah zakaria 1120788 said...

What is leadership?
From my opinion,leadership is all about process from person to influences others example our friends to accomplish an objective and directs organization to be more systematic and successfull.
"Good leaders are made not born"
To be a great leader, its all started from our attitude.
"Change your thoughts and you change the world"
Generally,attitude is a habit of thinking that surround yourself with positive caring people.This shows, without attitude,we cannot become a great leaders.

For example,there are 2 leaders, A and B, with different attitude.A is always give up and try to avoid the challenges as he can.While,B is always positive thinking and always believe that "the bigger the challenges, the bigger success that waits him in future"
He keeps walking step by step without give up to overcome the problem and finally he succeed.In this case,there are same person but different personality and attitude.

In conclusion, everyone can be a leaders but ,to be a great leaders we have change our attitude to be a better person.

Sincerely,

Leadership means the ability to lead. It is the process of inspiring others to work hard to accomplish important tasks. Great leaders get extraordinary things done in organizations by inspiring and motivating others toward a common purpose. In other words they use their power exceptionally well. And that use of power is associated with vision-a future that one hopes to create or achieve in order to improve upon the present state of affairs.
A leader also is selected based on their criteria needed. Not all leader has a leadership skills but to be a good leader, they must posses ones. One of the personal leadership skill that i admired is the transformational and charismatic one. Martin Luther King, Jr has this skills. He is well known for his famous "i have a dream" speech, delivered to a massive audience of civil rights supporters. "i have a dream today," said Martin Luther King, "that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by content of their character." Indeed, the US Congress passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, and the King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965. This is an example of a great leader.

Leadership is from base word, that is leader. What is leader means? Leader is someone who is appointed to be the chief, monitor, or representative among others. So to be a good leader, he or she has to spread out leadership in himself or herself. So here we can state that leadership is interoperated as a responsible or task that a leader should has in order to lead himself or herself and also people who are lead for. For further explanation, everyone should has sense of leadership in himself or herself. So people who lead others actually have two responsibilities, which are he or she has to be leader for himself or herself and for people who he or she lead for. Then, he or she has to lead himself or herself first before leading others to make sure that he or she could have good practice about leadership. On the other hand, everyone should has sense of leadership because it is one of the elements that lead to success in life ahead.

Leadership is a skill of human beings to lead anything that had been our responsibility. Every man is a leader on this Earth. Allah sent us to this world to be a leader. Nobody wants to be vicegerents on the Earth. Mountains, heavens refuse to be khalifah but we the human beings accept it. It's clearly stated in Quranic verses

" We offered the trust (of succession, caliphate) to the heavens and the Earth and the mountains, but they refused to undertake it, and were afraid of it. And (but) the human (being) undertook it (because) he was unjust (to himself) and ignorant (of the consequences of his undertaking)" (Al-A'hzab, 33: 72).

We took a very huge responsibility for being khalifah in this world. Thus, we should give our best towards that.In fact, we're also leaders to our own selves.Keep practicing to be the best leader to our own self,family and ummah !

~Live with passion cause without passion,life is only a motion.~

Leadership is best understood as an ability or skill to lead a group of people or an organization. Leadership is about method or how to manage people surround us. Being a leader also means to make sure any objectives or missions that are being set can actually be achieved. A leader should b brave and creative. A brave leader will have the courage to take any risk so that his group or organization can go further.

Leadership is a skill that a person acquire to lead other people. It is a skill that you have to learn and train. People are not born with it. And the best way to improve your leadership skill is experience. To be a great leader to other people, you must first be a great leader to yourself. How to do this? As a muslim, this shouldn't be a hard thing. Islam had underlined qualities that a mukmin should have. Among the qualities are, honest, kind, generous, helpful and others. If you are able to follow all this qualities, you won't find it hard to be a leader to yourself. Then, you can lead others. Leading others is not an easy thing. Sometimes you can't satisfied every single one of your followers. This is where your decision matters. You have to make sacrifices, stand firm with your decision and face the consequences of your acts. Sometimes a good leader might be a cruel one. Thus, every people who wants to lead, they must prove themselves worth it.

Leadership is the activity of leading a group of people or an organization or the ability to this. It involves in establishing a clear vision besides sharing it with others so that they will follow willingly. A leader steps up in times of crisis, and is able to think and act creatively in difficult situations. Leadership cannot be taught, although it may be learned and enhanced through coaching or mentoring. Someone with great leadership skills today is Bill Gates who despite early failures, with continued passion and innovation has driven Microsoft and the software industry to success.
There are four factors of leaderships that we have to view through which are related to leader itself, followers, communication and situation. As a leader, we must have an honest understanding of who we are, and what we can do. Also note that it is the followers, not the leader or someone else who determines the leader is successful. If they do not trust or lack confidence in their leaders, then they will be uninspired. To be successful, a leader has to convince his followers, not himself or his superiors, that he is worthy of being followed. Next, the factor is related to the followers. Different people required different styles of leadership. For example, a new hire requires more supervision than an experienced employee. A person who lacks motivation requires a different approach than one with a high degree of motivation. We must know our people! The fundamental point is having a good understanding of human nature, such as needs, emotions, and motivation. We must come to know our employees' be, know, and do attributes. Communication also plays important role in factors of leadership. We lead through two-way communication. Much of it is nonverbal. For instance, when we set the example, that communicates to our people that we would not ask them to perform anything that we would not be willing to do. What and how we communicate either builds or harms the relationship between us and our employees. In situation factors, it is totally different. What we do in one situation will not always work in another. we must use our judgment to decide the best course of action and the leadership style needed for each situation. For example, we may need to confront an employee for inappropriate behavior, but if the confrontation is too late or too early, too harsh or too weak, then the results may prove ineffective. Also note that the situation normally has a greater effect on a leader's action than his or her traits.
Therefore we noticed that leadership is the one thing that has to be built in ourselves. No matter what we have to explore ourselves how far we may go through with our leadership skills and apply it appropriately in our daily life.

Leadership is an ability of someone to lead a group of people to fulfil some agenda and perform the task. Everyone can be a leader, but to be a good leader, we must has high level of confident, courage and intelligent. Leadership skills do not come naturally, it needs practice and experience.
Keep in mind that it is better for us to be a leader than follower. It helps to motivate us to be a more responsible, tolerate and caring about those that we lead. As a student in university, leadership skill is a soft skill that will gives us an add-value instead of high CGPA. Therefore, it will differentiate us from the others and we can be more outstanding especially during the job interview.

Assalamualaikum :)

It is known that leadership means the action or ability of leading a group of people or an organization and it is also can be defined as the state or position of being a leader. But for me, I learnt that leadership is the condition of learning to lead ourselves before we become a leader to others.

"Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others." — Jack Welch

So, as stated above, the quality of leadership is actually within ourselves. It is ‘we’ who supposed to guide and give direction to ourselves in the way how we want to shape our mind and character to become an excellent leader to anyone else.

We might not a ruler to a country or a manager to a company, and we still might not a head to a family but someday we will always be. But remember, we are forever a leader to ourselves, either we aware about it or not, we have to accept this fact of life.

Learn to develop self-discipline and to be patience. These are some of the most important keys for a successful leader-to-be. Also, try to have self-respect to yourself because no one will respect you if you never respect your own self. Last but not least, a leader must not be a self-centered person. Try to have a thought about others first before you think about yourself. This is what a leader must and always do.
