“As you will be, so will be the leaders appointed over you.”
~ Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
Bayhaqi (Mishkat, Chapter on Leadership, Hadith no. 3717).
Leaders come from the same people and culture as everyone else in society. So, if we want better leaders we need to work on ourselves, try to attain good character and moral excellence. We all influence and inspire through our own example. If we don’t care about these things, why should anyone else, including our leaders?
