A True Leader


A true leader is not one who stands in front of the people proudly shouting slogans and promises, in all arrogance. He should be the one that bow with them in front of the Creator, in all humility and in all submission.

Al-Shaikh Ismai`il Haniyyah, the Palestinian Prime Minister, is seen here leading the tarawih prayer (1430 Hijri).

He was reciting verses 128 to 129 of the chapter al-A`raf:

Mûsa (Moses) said to his people: “Seek help in Allâh and be patient. Verily, the earth is Allâh’s. He gives it as a heritage to whom He will of His slaves, and the (blessed) end is for the Muttaqûn (pious). They said: “We (Children of Israel) had suffered troubles before you came to us, and since you have come to us.” He said: “It may be that your Lord will destroy your enemy and make you successors on the earth, so that He may see how you act?”
