Islam offers sound management principles that worked in the past and will work in the future. They have stood the test of time and will continue to do so. Taken from the Noble Qur’an and the practical example of Prophet Muhammad (may peace be upon him), these principles have been applied for over a thousand years.
Islam, as a revealed religion, is more than a set of rituals; it is a complete way of life, touching every aspect of human activity. Islam offers guidance on economics, education, politics, judiciary, social organisations, and last, but not least, management. Over the course of 13 centuries, Islam successfully managed hundreds of millions of people of different ethnicities and religions, from continents stretching from the shores of Morocco to the furthest islands of Malaysia. This is a very impressive track record. Islamic principles of management have a large part to play in this success.
Islamic principles mentioned here only scratch the surface of Islamic management discipline. Unlike Islamic economics, which has been given considerable coverage recently, especially since the world financial crisis in 2008, Islamic management has been unexplored and underutilized.
Through making the Inspired Manager a central character, this handbook illustrates the Islamic principles and best practices that any manager can adopt for successful management.
