About the Book: Beekun and Badawi have written a primer on leadership integrating contemporary business techniques with traditional Islamic knowledge. The synthesis results in a highly practical and inspiring manual for developing leadership skills. Leadership in Islam is a trust. It represents a psychological contract between a leader and his followers that he will try his best to guide them… Hence, the focus of leadership in Islam is on doing good. According to Islam, every person is the “shepherd” of his flock, and occupies a position of leadership. Leadership: An Islamic Perspective is about how Muslims enact their leadership role. This book is directed at both non-Muslims seeking to understand the leadership paradigm of one billion Muslims globally and at Muslims wishing to understand leadership better.
