Researching the Leadership of the Prophet Muhammad: Issues of Truth, Objectivity and Bias
Mon Sep 25 2023 at 06:30 pmUTC+04:00
NYUAD Institute | Abu Dhabi, AZ
Evaluating historical leadership effectiveness poses challenges, particularly when analyzing figures like the blessed Islamic Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, a military leader involved in wars that created new power structures and a prophet who ushered in dramatically original and transformational ways of understanding monotheistic religion and its relationship with politics. Records often bear the bias of their authors, and attributing success or failure directly to a leader’s actions may overlook external factors and contributions from others. Despite these hurdles, this talk strives to offer an objective, meaningful exploration of Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ leadership.
