Penawar hati yang duka..

Pabila hati gundah gulana, adakah kehidupan hilang serinya...?

Saat orang tersayang ketawa gembira, mampukah berselindung di sebalik duka..?

Tatkala kekuatan tinggal sekelumit cuma, mampukah lagi teguh berdiri ...?

6 (+ 1) ways to make people like you


Today our ‘tazkirah’ will be some short and simple tips on how to make people like you.

Is this topic relevant to us as Muslim? Well, yes!

In our everyday life, we met people and as Muslim, of course we also carry the responsibility to spread the beauty of Islam to whomever we met.

In other words, we are all da’ie ( pendakwah) and people we met, be it our parents, our siblings, our teachers, our friends and neighbours..they are all our mad’u (orang yang didakwah) .

As dai’e, we might be eager enough to spread da’wah to others but sometimes, we tend to use the not-so-right method when dealing with our potential mad’u.

Or we sometimes forget the simplest or easiest things when dealing with them hence, pushing them farther instead of getting them closer to us and Islam.

So, here are short,simple & sweet tips on how to tackle your mad’u. =)

Principle 5

Talk in terms of your mad’u’s interests.
