Introduction The issue of leadership in higher education institutions has never become more challenging today than ever before, especially in Muslim countries, for several reasons, among which are the following: a) The failure of political and economic systems in many Muslim countries to provide stable, sustainable and long-lasting solutions to the problems of human development and nation-building, the quality of life for the people as a whole and the ability to overcome the negative impact of globalized capitalism and materialistic consumerist culture; b) The emergence of the “excellence without the soul syndrome” in many universities as a consequence of adopting the neo-liberal market oriented educational paradigm which emphasizes the commercialization and commodification of higher education.
