Abstract


This research concludes that development of Muslim communities in the Philippines
primarily relies on local initiatives and people’s assertive character to institute behavioral
reform. It entails a transformation process involving all sectors of the society in such a way
that true and committed Muslim leaders will emerge to provide direction and at the same time
orchestrate the development of the communities.It is therefore argued that transformational
leadership is the most appropriate model that could improve the living conditions of Muslims
in the Philippines Firstly, this study provides the empirical evidence that leaders and followers
believe that it is through Islamic leadership that their communities can be developed. Secondly, the
history of the leadership of Prophet Mohammad and his four caliphs proved that Islamic leadership is
indeed transformational leadership one, hence, they deserve to be emulated by Muslims.
