Every Muslim educational institution, from High School to College to University, must have a full-fledged program on Communication that would train the younger generation of Muslims in all kinds of Communication models, theories, methods and skills.
Islam is all about Communication. Allah is the best Communicator of all. Followed by Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
And Qur’an is the finest form of Communication in Heaven and on earth, followed by Hadith Sharif.
It is time for Muslims to start training themselves to become the finest and most effective all-round communicators that they were meant to be.
And that they were for much of their history.
And that they need to be even now, today, so that they can do a good and effective job of taking Allah’s message to every home and heart that needs it.
And these Communication Programs need to consist of all kind of great courses on Journalism, Public Relations, Advertising, Media, and everything else communication most broadly and inclusively conceived.
One or two courses in Mass Com are not enough, by any stretch of the imagination. We need all kinds of complete and full-range programs that will produce top experts and professionals in all related fields of Communication — and pretty fast too.
I am ready, willing, and, with help from God Almighty, able, to cobble programs of this kind for anyone in any high school, college or university anywhere — at the drop of a hat as it were.
