Despite continuous public interest in leadership studies as well as the abundance of extant literature, the world continues to face leadership predicaments. Given the global crises mankind has been recently exposed to, which include the financial crisis of 2008 as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, further exploration of leadership concepts seems warranted. This edited book aims at introducing the concept of Balanced Leadership from an Islamic perspective. Drawing on both leadership and Islamic studies, the book synchronizes between secular and religious knowledge domains whilst introducing the notion of balance to mainstream leadership literature. The conceptualizations presented in the book serve to dissect the leadership literature, present historical and philosophical accounts of the balanced leadership concept and infuse that with Islamic theology. The book is useful for practitioners interested in leadership studies as well as scholars and researchers aiming at extending the leadership literature.

Prospective papers can take any of the following forms: - Theoretical and empirical studies that distinguish between different types of leadership from an Islamic perspective (e.g. authentic leadership, transformational leadership, etc) in relation to balanced leadership.
- Theoretical studies that outline a theory for balanced leadership from an Islamic perspective. This theory may focus on the processes by which balance and influence takes place.
- Studies on the construction and validation of measurements of balanced leadership.
- Conceptual notes on the risks surrounding the lack of balanced leadership from an Islamic perspective.
- Conceptual papers that present analogies between the notion of balanced leadership in the Islamic tradition and other traditions (e.g. Chinese).
- Multilevel, empirical studies that test hypotheses on the relationships between the antecedents and consequences of balanced leadership.
- Empirical researches that address balanced leadership in Muslim-majority or minority communities.
- Empirical or conceptual papers that address balanced leadership in different settings; organizational or educational.
- Historical and biographical notes on Islamic balanced leadership figures (e.g. of Prophet Muhammad).
We, therefore, envision an introductory chapter outlining the Islamic perspective on Balanced Leadership followed by more specific articles that address the aspects noted above.
