This book examines the concept of leadership from within the Islamic worldview, exploring its meaning and various manifestations
through textual evidence from the two primary sources of Islam, The Qur'an and hadith. Using this theoretical framework concurrent
with contemporary leadership theory, the authors scrutinise the distinctive leadership dynamics of Islamic organisations within
a minority-Muslim context and a focus on Australia. Drawing on empirical data gathered over four years, the nature of leadership
and its processes within this unique context is examined. Leadership in Islam reconciles the problematic processes that exist
within Muslim organisational context and offers a set of measures and strategies to improve leadership processes including
enacting leadership, enacting following, accommodating complexity, sense making and embracing basics as the core processes.
This book will be beneficial for anyone who seeks to understand the meaning of leadership in Islam, the way Islamic organisations
operate, and the way forward for improving leadership processes within an Australian/Western context.
