Discover what being a leader is all about, and here’s a secret. being a leader isn’t just for the select few it’s something inside you no matter of your age or where you come from imagine it as a hidden superpower waiting to be Unleashed regardless of your age background or profession in this video you’re going to learn from some of the most incredible examples of leadership in Islamic history like the prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam and whether you’re a student a parent a professional or anyone else you’re on the path to uncovering your inner leader you’ll find out how to tap into this potential to make a positive impact in your community and beyond ready to embark on this journey and become an amazing leader bah your transformative Journey Starts Now start by thinking about leadership in every part of life. The prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam said each of you is a shepherd, and each of you is responsible for his flock. This shows that leadership is everywhere, in school, at work, and at home. It’s not about titles; it’s about the positive impact you have on others. Imagine being that guide, that mentor, and a source of inspiration to people around you. So what exactly makes a good leader? Here are seven principles that all highly effective leaders possess: truthfulness and trustworthiness. Being honest is the key. Imagine if you put your trust in someone really close and then found out that they were lying to you. Would you ever trust them again? The greatest leader that I know was the prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihiĀ wasallam, and he was well known for his honesty even before he became the leader of the Remember, honesty is crucial, whether you’re a student, a parent, or a professional. It’s not about perfection but about consistently doing what’s right. humility is a trait that draws people towards leaders it’s about recognizing that everyone has something valuable to offer leaders don’t boast or show off they lift others up this reminds me of the story of the conquest of Jerusalem during the reign of Omar he had to go there himself to sign the treaty and he went there with one donkey and one servant now imagine the Muslim Army waiting along with all the people people of Jerusalem and they’re imagining that the leader of the umah will come with this huge host of bodyguards and Entourage and the Khalifa actually came with just one servant and they were sharing the donkey one by one so when they entered the city it was the servant’s turn to sit and Omar was walking by him dressed in simple clothes and looking no different from the servant imagine that level of humbleness and kindness and that is the sign of a true leader leaders put others first showing kindness and serving with humility number three empathize and connect good leaders understand and care about the feelings and the needs of their followers take for instance Omar during his leadership he encountered a poor man begging for his help in the streets of Medina instead of simply giving him something Omar sat with the man listened to his story and empathized with his struggles he then initiated social welfare programs to support people in need demonstrating his compassion as a leader so leadership is not just about achieving goals but also about uplifting and supporting those you lead four effective communication leaders are great communicators they share their vision and listen to others I want you to think about a school group project where one student took charge. This student didn’t just tell others what to do; they actively listened to everyone’s ideas, addressed their concerns, and ensured that everyone understood their role. As a result, the group worked well together and achieved success. This principle highlights the importance of clear communication and teamwork. Five fairness and justice leaders are fair and just. Leaders use fairness as their guide; they see everyone as equal, no matter their background or differences. It’s about choosing what’s right over what’s easy or convenient. Think about a time when Ali faced a tough decision and a dispute came about between a Muslim and a non-Muslim. The non-Muslim turned to Ali for justice instead of leaning towards the Muslim simply because of shared religion. Ali listened to both sides with full attention; he made his decision based on truth and justice, a ruling in favor of the non-Muslim. This act showed his commitment to fairness, proving that justice stands above personal or group affiliations. This story teaches a crucial lesson for anyone in a leadership position. It doesn’t matter if you’re leading a team at work, participating in community activities, or making decisions at home. The goal should always be to act with fairness and justice. Decisions should be based on merit and equality. By doing so, leaders create spaces where everyone has the opportunity to succeed and grow. Inshallah, number six Have a vision. Imagine a leader who not only dreams big but also sets clear, achievable goals. That is what having a vision actually means. It’s like when you plan out a project step by step or map out a road trip to make sure everyone has fun and adventure. This kind of vision excites and motivates everyone around you. Forward As the community grew, the need for more space became evident. Usman saw both the immediate need and the future growth of the Muslim community. His decision to expand the mosque was not just about meeting a current requirement; it was about anticipating the future and ensuring the community would have a place to gather, pray, and unite for years to come. This approach shows how visionary leadership isn’t just about grand gestures; a visionary leader looks ahead, plans with purpose, and inspires others to join in the journey towards a better future. Seven continuous learning leaders never stop learning. Omar Abdulaziz is remembered for his dedication to studying and applying the Quran and Hadith. Emulating such leaders means always seeking knowledge and using it to benefit others, and that’s it. Remember, leadership isn’t about titles; it’s about making a difference in the lives of others and the world.
