Jazaka'Allahu Khayr for that wonderful post masha'Allah! I hope it proves to be useful to all who read it as it provides an excellent and clear guide line for anyone who wishes to call in radio shows! I especially liked your idea on becoming a general caller as in on topics which are not directly related to Islam and Muslims as I think is a very important fact that as Muslims we do not do! We shy away from things where Islam is not mentioned but surely Islam is a way of life so there is room for it everywhere insha'Allah... even if it ends up showing that muslims do have an opinion on other topics apart from dare I say....'extremism, radicalism, and hot topics'! It shows that as Muslims we do have an interest in everything else going on in the world as we should do and that we are educated in all fields insha'allah! So Jazaka'Allahu Khayr for making that excllent point!

Wa iyyakum. I just noticed that Umar Tait did that...phoned up for other topics and so I started to as well and found that the presenter reacts well to a person not being a religion-basher all the time and listeners can't pigeon-hole you as the 'extreme Muslim' anymore, but as someone who has insight and depth and even a light side to yourself. Though I stress that as Muslim women we should keep our adab on the radio...not soften our voice too much etc.

I think the point ARG made about expecting the unexpected is important. Once when I called in, the female presenter said very enthusiatically 'Happy New Year!' which I wasn't prepared for at all and so I ended up greeting her back! Astaghfirullah. I felt quite silly after that...

JazakAllah for sharing this.

Great advice.
