A Proposal for The Establishment of An Islamic Leadership Institution

A. S. Majali
From University of Jordan, P.O. Box 1682, Amman, Jordan.

Leadership is the ability to show the way, to guide or conduct, to direct and govern, to influence the actions or opinions of others. Ibn Khaldoun said: "Human social organization is something necessary. The philosophers expressed this fact by saying man is (political) by nature.
Through cooperation, the needs of a number of persons, many times greater than their own (number), can be satisfied. When mankind has achieved social organization,... and civilization in the world has thus become a fact, peoples need someone to exercise a restraining influence and keep them apart, for aggressiveness and injustice are in the animal nature of man. The person who exercises a restraining influence... must be one of themselves".
Ibn Khaldoun shares an acute insightfulness with men of diverse professions who not only excelled in this particular ‘science’ but actively concerned themselves with the basic features of man and society.
