Keywords:Leadership, Servant Leadership, Prophet Muhamed (PBUH)
Effective leadership is required to achieve sustainable development. Over the years, both industrialized and developing nations have seen leadership as a crucial issue and recognized its significance, resulting in an abundance of research on various styles of leadership. Recent interest in servant leadership has increased due to its influence and impact. Literature on servant leadership is replete with examples of historical servant leaders, but there have been few attempts to highlight the servant leadership attributes of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This study reveals that the Holy Prophet (PBUH)’s servant leadership style fits the requirements for excellent leadership and has the potential to be very effective in addressing the difficulties of both developed and developing nations. This research employed qualitative methods. The phenomenological approach was utilized to describe the significance of the Holy Prophet (PBUH)'s servant leadership style through six primary themes: empowerment, humility, acceptance of people, direct provision, authenticity, and exemplary stewardship. The study concludes that Almighty Allah appointed the leadership of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s servant leadership to divert humanity from the path of darkness to the path of light therefore; Muslims in positions of authority should emulate the Prophet (PBUH)’s behavior by adopting his servant-leadership style in managing their various institutions.
