Moreover, it is difficult to emerge a leader not only at the national level but also at the local level. As the country with the largest Muslim population in the world, it is supposed to show a leadership figure with prophetic qualities in his leadership model. This study analyzes the contributions of Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) (The Prosperous Justice Party) in developing transformative prophetic leadership in Indonesia. Islam as the majority religion in Indonesia requires a leader who is able to put forward the prophetic values. A leader who will be able to implement prosperously and advance in Indonesia. Based on the analysis and discussions, it can be concluded that the party which is able to contribute in developing the “Transformative Prophetic Leadership” in Indonesia is the PKS. The prophetic leadership has the following indicators: truthfulness, trustworthiness, advocacy and wisdom. Facts have shown that the various legislative and executive positions are filled by PKS cadres who are able to generate and prepare figures of a good leader by promoting the prophetic values in his leadership or to be called transformative prophetic leadership. People’s consultative assembly of Indonesia has been chaired by PKS cadres as well as several ministers, the governor of West Java, West Sumatra, North Sumatra, some regents and mayors in Indonesia.
