Teamwork and Leadership in Islam

It is well known that, since the beginning of time, man is unable to live in isolation. We Muslims believe, even with all the beauties in Heaven, Adam (peace be upon him) was made a wife – Hawa’ (Eve) – for the sake of companionship – and this marked the formation of the first team on earth.
In Islam there are so many successful examples and stories on teamwork and leadership. The father-son relationship of Ibrahim and Ismail building the Ka’bah, Dangerous migration of the handful of Muslims to Abyssinia, joint leadership of Moses and Aaron (peace be upon them) etc.  Working together has always been important in Islam and it falls upon all believers to honor this responsibility and hold on to the rope of God together.
Noble Quran says, hold firmly all together the rope which Allah SWT had stretched out for you and be not divided among yourselves. (Al-Imran 3:103). It shows the guidance was given and a lot of good can come out of hanging on together and helping each other out in times of difficulties.
