Abstract

Leadership is needed in a society and country. A society without leaders would lose its direction and purpose. Islam has laid down the basic principles of leadership and the Prophet (pbuh) and the Khulafa' al- Rashidin have proven their superiority and excellence through success in world history. Not everyone is qualified to lead because it is a trust answerable to Allah (swt). Thus, there are several conditions to qualify for leadership, such as being free of physical handicap so as to be fit for active service and possession of knowledge in order to administer properly with fairness and justice because it is the key to peace and harmony in society. Another prerequiste to be a leader is that he/she must be a Muslim, so that he/she may fulfill the obligatory religious demands on a leader.
