Our answer:

From our libraries home page  go to Most Used Databases. Most of the databases listed there will have articles on your topic. Try Academic Search Complete first. There is a feature in most of the databases that will limit your results to peer-reviewed or scholarly articles.

We have a database called 

Index Islamicus
The Index Islamicus database indexes literature on Islam, the Middle East and the Muslim world. It is produced by an editorial team working at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, established to transmit knowledge about Islamic and Middle East studies, which have traditionally been part of the curriculum of SOAS. Records included in the database cover almost 100 years of publications on the world of Islam.

Material cited in the Index Islamicus includes not only work written about the Middle East, but also about the other main Muslim areas of Asia and Africa, plus Muslim minorities elsewhere. Over 3,000 journals are monitored for inclusion in the database, together with conference proceedings, monographs, multi-authored works and book reviews. Journals and books are indexed down to the article and chapter level.

If you have more questions about Muslim Leaders you might want to contact out subject specialist in that area,
