The Qur’an seeks to establish a society, state, and complete human civilization based on the principles sent down from on high. The Prophet (PBUH) was the leader of the Islamic society, state, and civilization formed in the Arabian Peninsula. His personality was representative of the Qur’anic values. The Qur’an presented a theoretical framework of the attributes of the leadership, and the Prophet (PBUH) manifested those qualities in a practical manner. The present paper is a humble attempt to highlight the Qur’anic principles of leadership from an ethical angle. The discussion also calls for the mention of negative factors that may lead to the split of the leadership personality. The methodology applied in the paper is critical analysis. The conclusion reached at therein is that the real leadership that the Qur’an and the Sunnah wants to develop is a comprehensive one, with no split between political leadership and ideal leadership . *********************************************************************************vAl-Quran membentuk sebuah masyarakat, negara, dan peradaban manusia yang lengkap berdasarkan prinsip-prinsip yang diwahyukan.
