Islam is a universal religion for all mankind. It is, therefore, not restricted to any nation, race, or gender. Moreover, human beings are social by nature. They need to cooperate with one another in order to be able to survive. Islam stresses cooperation and sense of collectiveness. As a matter of fact, Islam cannot be practiced by any individual in isolation. Islam is indeed a collective religion.
For all of its material progress, modern society continues to suffer from incredible moral lapses, and honest role models and leaders are a distant memory. The search for leaders free of shameful attributes appears to draw voids as we live in a world increasingly overtaken by gluttony and corruption. The question then arises: where are the honest leaders? Although it would be predictable to disparage the modern thinkers for its apparent lack of moral leaders, in this case charity begins at home, and the Muslim world continues to produce leaders that easily outdo even the worst modern day politicians.
