PRU fever all over Malaysia! The GE 13 just around the corner. Let's fulfill our obligation to elect our future leader.. But, in order to choose our leader, we must wondering, who is a good leader for us to choose..? What are their qualities to be considered? Nah, there are the answers.. :)
Jules Masserman in a Time Magazine article entitled: “Who Were Histories Great Leaders?” wrote:
“Leaders must fulfil three functions:
1. Provide for wellbeing of the led,
2. Provide a social organisation in which people feel relatively secure,
3. And provide them with one set of beliefs.
People like Pasteur and Salk are leaders in the first sense. People like Gandhi and Confucius, on one hand, and Alexander, Caeser and Hitler on the other hand, are leaders in the second and perhaps the third sense. Jesus and Buddha belong in the third category alone. Perhaps the greatest leader of all times was Mohammed, who combined all three functions.” (source)
Emm.. For me..choose leaders who would fulfill their responsibility honourably, who are not selfish, do their duty faithfully.. Who would uphold this Deen, based on Al-Quran and As-Sunnah.. Leaders who follow and want to follow the Prophet, Nabi Muhammad S.A.W, his qualities of leadership..
