In Islamic thought, model leaders were simultaneously both exalted and humble, capable of vision and inspiration, yet at the same time dedicated to the service of their people. In The Leadership of Muhammad the author discusses this ideal leadership and the essential attributes of a leader such as courage, integrity, practical wisdom, and moral authority and humility.

"On a journey the leader of the people is their servant." - The Prophet Muhammad
