Leadership

Abu Hurairah (Radiyallahu Anhu – may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet ﷺ said:Verily, the leader is only a shield behind whom they fight and he protects them. If he commands the fear of Allah, the Exalted and Just, then he will have a reward. If he commands something else, then it will be against him.” [Muslim]

Al-Bayhaqi reported that Ash-Shafi’i (Radiyallahu Anhu – may Allah be pleased with him) said: “You must achieve understanding before leadership. If you achieve leadership first, there will be no way to achieve understanding.” [Madkhal ila Sunan]

The best of your leaders are those whom you love and who love you, who pray for you and you pray for them. The worst of your leaders are those whom you hate and who hate you, and you send curses on them and they send curses on you…. [Muslim]
