ISLAM DAN KEPEMIMPINAN: STRATEGI KOMUNIKASI DAN PENGAMBILAN KEPUTUSAN
Communication activities within an organization or institution aim to form mutual understanding and equalize experiences among organizational members. With good communication, an organization can run smoothly, but otherwise the lack or absence of communication, the organization can fall apart. Therefore, communication in making a decision in the organization is very important because the presence of the leader becomes one of the spearheads of success in the organization. This study aims to explore the analysis of communication and decision-making strategies in the context of Islamic leadership. The findings of this study challenge the view of Juhji 2020 who claims that leadership consists of a hierarchical structure that places primary attention on followers. Instead, this study reveals that the dynamics of the relationship between leaders and the led are not always bound by traditional hierarchical structures that place status class differences between superiors and subordinates. In the Islamic context, the concept of leadership is associated with the concept of khalifah which signifies the leader's role as God's representative on earth, tasked with upholding His will and taking care of His world. On the other hand, every individual in Islam is considered a caliph, regardless of social or economic status. In general, the role of communication in leadership in the decision-making process involves principles such as fairness, listening to the opinions of other members, supporting the achievement of organizational goals, creating a safe environment, representing the organization with inspiring service, and valuing the contributions of organizational members.
