Leadership Lessons from Surah Al-Ḥujurāt

Shaykh AbdulNasir Jangda shares a couple of essential leadership characteristics for all Muslims in this short 6 minute clip. Video and some essential lessons follow.

  • Leaders are at the service of their people, not the other way around. True leadership does not come from giving orders out to others, but it comes from serving them. A leader has an open-door policy, and is constantly making himself or herself available.
  • Leadership requires being patient and forgiving with people and not taking things personally. The prophetic example shows us that no matter the inconvenience, a leader is always forbearing and available.
  • Everyone is a leader in some capacity of life. These leadership characteristics can be implemented by all.
