Islam Is All About Discipline -- and Leadership [Quote - 467]
While Iman could be a condition of your heart, Islam is all about discipline. Consequently, in a very real sense, there is no Islam without adherence to a Jama'at and commitment to a leadership.
That is why Islam demands that you, first of all, elect your leadership and, next, choose the best among you to be your leaders.
Thereafter, Islam demands that you hold your leaders, as well as each other, accountable, both in public and private.
