Qur’anic Methodology Towards Effective Communication with Dr. Basyouny Nehela

January 27-28 and February 3-4, from 10:00am-5:30pm

ISB (Islamic Society of Boston-Cambridge)


The Quran was revealed as a guide for mankind. From its text, we extract much of how we as Muslims should live our lives. In this course, we will explore how Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) has taught us the best methods of communication. Whether it be how to communicate with Him, communicate with our spouses and children, or those in our communities, both Muslims and people of other faiths.

During this course, we will not only learn practical skills to improve our communication, but will also reflect on various passages of the Quran. Through this effort, we will inshaAllah gain a deeper love and appreciation for the miraculous words of Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala).
