Dhul-Qarnayn is our leadership education tour. We take the example of this noble man and his unparalleled leadership skills, intelligent decision making, and an exemplary ability of distinguishing right from wrong. When you are given vast knowledge and/or enviable position of power, what are your responsibilities, obligations and what course of action do you take? All that is at your disposal should not become an obstacle to your humbleness. Wisdom displays itself best in your way of treatment of good and evil. Dhul-Qarnayn does not only ask people to follow his directives, he actively participates in them. In his tour we learn to regard technical knowledge as a gift to be accepted, cultivated, promoted, advanced and used in our own lives and in service to others.
