All About Our Leadership Institute
Barakah, Inc's Leadership Institute prepares sisters to return to their community to better serve the people who need them most. The education and training you receive are essential for your personal edification but it is more for you to learn how to use your knowledge to give back to your community. It is for you to become a servant leader. Think about that. Think about being a servant leader. The kind of leader that reflects the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. We need more women like that. We need more women like the companions who were blessed to be around him.
Barakah's Leadership Institute provides experiential learning that will expose participants to leaders in our community that will share their stories of success, challenges, and sometimes failures. The capstone project each participant will complete involves designing your leadership role with the community organization of your choosing.

It is out of God’s mercy that you have been lenient with them. Had you been rough, hard-hearted, they would surely have scattered away from you. So pardon them, and pray for their forgiveness, and take counsel from them in matters of importance. And when you are resolved on a course of action, place your trust in God; surely God loves those who put their trust (in Him). If God helps you none shall prevail over you; if He forsakes you then who can help you? It is in God that the believers should put their trust. 3:159-160
