Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad : Paradigm of Leadership # 1- Imam Shamil -Cambridge Muslim College - 4/13/2021

YouTube Lecture # 1 Imam Shamil :

Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad tells the story of Imam Shamil, political, military, and spiritual leader of Caucasian resistance to Imperial Russia in the 1800s. He is the first of many exemplary figures in Islamic history in this series. Muslim history brims with detailed accounts of incredible leaders. Some are better known than others but they all demonstrated a range of beautiful leadership qualities that we can learn from today.

In Paradigms of Leadership – an ongoing Lecture Series – Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad chooses exemplary figures in Islamic history of every generation, geography and gender, drawing out particular lessons for us: both in the way they carried themselves through society and in the principles they employed in handling the urgent challenges of their day. Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (Dr Timothy Winter) was educated at Cambridge, Al-Azhar and London universities. He is currently the Shaykh Zayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Divinity at Cambridge University and Director of Studies in Theology at Wolfson College. He has published and contributed to numerous academic works on Islam, including as Director of the Sunna Project, and is a leading figure in inter-faith activity, notably as one of the signatories to the Common Word statement. He is well-known as a contributor to BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’. Cambridge Muslim College is the original vision of Abdal Hakim Murad.

Imam Shamil Wikipedia :

BOOK : Imam Shamil: The First Muslim Guerrilla Leader - Muhammad Hamid - The tragedy that overtook and continues to befall on Muslims in the shape of the destruction of their independence and power would have been sufficient to kill their will to live, were it not for a group of fighters who refuse to concede that slavery can be the destiny of Muslims. Muslims have continuously nurtured the sentiment of Jihad in their hearts. Imam Shamil's story of jihad against the Russians is a part of the same story. Little is known of the Muslims of Chechnya and the occupation of their lands by the Tsarist Russian invaders. The Sufi movement in the Caucasus in the eighteenth century was not a Muslim cult occupied merely in chanting God's praise: their jihad movement led by Imam Shamil is an epic story of faith in God and a legacy that Muslims cherish, to be retold from generation to generation.
