New Book | The Characteristics of The Caller

About the book

This book, The Characteristics of The Caller, is a unique look at the fundamental qualities a dawah carrier should have. It focuses on 7 vital characteristics:  righteousness, sincerity, wisdom, knowledge, kindness, courage and good character. The book examines them from a Qur’anic and Prophetic perspective and from a wide range of scholarly outlook. Interspersed in the sections are other noteworthy qualities that emerge from the Qur’anic and Prophetic encounters such as patience, forbearance and reliance on Allah. 
What makes this book altogether unique in its approach is that each major section has a detailed subdivision on ways to obtain such characteristics. It also provides case studies for each characteristic of what to do or how to respond in different dawah scenarios. 
The book will provide a crucial outlook for the Caller to Islam and enable him/her to navigate internal spaces of spiritual development and also to become a far better equipped Caller to Islam with knowledge, insight and confidence - understanding the luminous instructions and methods the book provides with a Qur'an-centric approach.
