Islamic Leadership: Comparisons and Qualities
By Ahmad Rafiki
The 2 primary roles of Muslim leaders are:
- A leader is a servant to his followers. He is to seek their welfare and guide them.
- A leader is to protect his community against tyranny and oppression, encourage God-consciousness and taqwa, and promote justice.
Sempena bulan Syaaban dan umat Islam akan menyambut bulan Ramadhan tidak lama lagi, tazkirah pada 31 Mac 2021, yang disampaikan oleh PM Dr Aminuddin Ruskam sangat memberi kesan. Antara intipati tazkirah beliau adalah:
- Elak prasangka dan bersangka buruk terhadap staf disekelilingnya. Berbaik sangka melahirkan perasaan yang gembira dan ceria dan menyebabkan persekitran kerja yang lebih kondusif.
- Pemimpin hendaklah menjadi contoh kepada staf lain, jangan menjadi seperti ketam .

Besides China’s soft power, a study has also been done on India’s soft power. India is another economy tycoon, who is, at the same time, a rival to China. Philip Dodd believes that New Delhi will be the Asia’s soft superpower. Mind you, not soft power but soft SUPERpower. Is this the sign of anxiety that the westerns are facing right now?
Soft power is referred to as ‘achieving what you want by attracting and persuading others to adopt your customs – thriving on control, but not force’. What’s wrong with practising the soft power? If it is for the good course, I personally think we should all practise soft power and we should not underestimate the power of soft power. China has apparently shown to the world that we can modernize but not westernize. Modernization and westernization are two different things.
This morning in the BBC News, it was mentioned that China is practising soft power. That is very intriguing. I googled soft power to learn more about the term and specifically what it means by China’s soft power.
The definition of soft power found on the BBB News website is “soft power is the power to be loved. Hard power is the power to be feared”.
