In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Effective Communication
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

Effective communication is important for living systems for power, control and survival. Without effective communication societies or systems cannot organize themselves or perform desired functions.

Living systems or societies are information processing units and information can only be communicated effectively if the communication channels are free from any disturbance or noise.

As an example: For transactions in banks, they need error free transactions, “NOT A SINGLE MISTAKE”.

True Contents, Style, Audience, Repeating & Reminding and Listening Attentively are the Key Ingredients for the Effective Communication.

Allah told to listen to the Quraan with full attention is a part of Effective Communication, (Ref: Al_Quraan_007.204)

Allah told to mind your language, (Ref: Al_Quraan_004.148, 010.015 - 016).

Always make Duaa that “If I am wrong, May Allah Correct me. If you are Wrong, May Allah correct you. If we both are wrong, May Allah correct both of us. AMEEN.”

Anger / Anxiety (Stress or Tension) hurts you, specially if it is from the loved ones. Don’t do the Great Mistake that "I am Right". Both the prophets Musaa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) and Khizr (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) were prophets and obeyed Allah BUT disagreed on some of their mission. There is NO Compulsion in Religion/Belief, (Ref: Al_Quraan_002:256). "To you is your religion, and to me is my religion", (Al_Quraan_109:006). It is time to UNITE not DIVIDE.

Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious, (Ref: Al_Quraan_016.125).

Be a Role Model for your Child as well as to the society. And make Duaa.

”Rabbi Zidnee Aailmaa”. (O my Lord! Increase me in knowledge), (Ref: Al_Quraan_020.114), AMEEN.

”Rabbishrah Lee Sadree Wayassir Lee Amree Wahlul AAuqdatan Min Lisanee Yafqahoo Qawlee”. (O my Lord! expand my breast; And ease my task for me; And loose the knot from my tongue; So they may understand what I say), (Ref: Al_Quraan_020.025 - 028), AMEEN.

To whom Allah has given the ability to Dawah, MUST start doing Positive Dawah now.
To whom Allah has given the ability to Speak, MUST start Speaking now BUT No-Violence.
To whom Allah has given the ability to Write, MUST start Writing now BUT No-Violence.
To whom Allah has given the ability to go on the Media, MUST start going on to the Media now BUT No-Violence.
To whom Allah has given the ability to do other Peaceful and Non-Violent things, MUST start doing Peaceful and Non-Violent things now.

Remember: Violence is Hurting Islaam very BADLY.

And withhold yourself with those who call on their Lord morning and evening desiring His goodwill, and let not your eyes pass from them (always yes sir, till they follow the Quraan and Really Authentic Sunnah), desiring the beauties of this world's life; and do not follow him whose heart We have made unmindful to Our remembrance, and he follows his low desires and his case is one in which due bounds are exceeded, (Al_Quraan_018.028).

Never Stop: Listening, Learning and Thinking.
