Leadership as a topic can be studied from many different viewpoints including political, military, social, religious or corporate. This paper aims to provide scholars with an analysis of a religious perspective on corporate and social leadership. The paper focuses on Qur’anic scripture in relation to the qualities of leaders from an Islamic viewpoint and the scripture’s applicability to contemporary views on leadership. This work further examines leadership and its importance and growing role in the culturally diverse globalised economy. The intensification of debate between civilisations with divergent views on a plethora of issues has placed a spotlight on Islam and prompted a need for dialogue. This paper thus addresses the topic of leadership, with a view to continuing the discourse amongst scholars seeking to learn from the richness of Islamic history. This paper considers both cultural variance and the Islamic view of leadership and presents an evaluation on the qualities leaders in Islam and their applicability to contemporary society. The work draws on a variety of resources with a centralised focus on Qur’anic scripture to understand individuals mentioned therein relevant to Judeo-Christian and Islamic history.
