Abstract

The concept of leadership is being misperceived by both some leaders and some scholars. This paper opposes the misperceived view of leadership and discusses the concept of ‘Alimamah al-kubra’ (great leadership) as posited by two prominent scholars: Abdullahi bin-fodi and Hassan al-Banna. It explains how the leadership should be in accordance with the teaching of Islam and recommends leaders to study the works of these two scholars
