This profound statement by Prophet Muhammad (s) compels us to recognise that we are all leaders at some level. But what makes someone a good leader? And how does each and everyone of us measure up against the leadership standards set by the Prophet?

This book presents a well researched leadership framework combined with extensively applied contemporary practitioner case studies for the first time to readers interested in a Sirah (prophetic life) based universal model for good leadership. Drawing upon scholarly findings from eastern and western sources, and having examined an extensive range of works on Sirah, an original framework of eleven prophetic leadership qualities are presented with an entire chapter devoted to each.

Well known and lesser known events from the Sirah are explored and analysed like never before, and viewed with a specialist leadership lens, extracting insights on effective people management, authentic leadership and succeeding against the odds.

Each chapter on leadership qualities offers not only what the quality means and where it can be found in the life of the Prophet, but how one can develop those qualities within themselves as well.

"A book that anyone can benefit from"

I attended a course run by the author based on this book and so it’s great to have the book now. The book is so easy to access with a great framework of 11 qualities and a way to assess your own strengths and weaknesses in each quality. I found I could then focus on my weaker areas and learn about how the Prophet ﷺ, companions and historical or modern day role models exemplified that quality. It would be a great book for entrepreneurs & people who want to excel in all spheres of life. I especially liked the case studies & tips at the end of every chapter.
