In Lessons from My Life, Dr Ahmad Totonji shares the lessons he has learned over the course of sixty years in dawah work. The book outlines the principles and methodologies that he based his life and work on. By applying these principles in our own lives and work, we can live more meaningful and productive lives in which our actions are aligned with our goals, our voluntary work is more effective, and our modus operandi is fairness, transparency and kindness. Some key principles that steer the advice given are cooperation, inclusiveness, respect, fairness, patience, organization, transparency, diligence, persistent striving, positivity, and a focus on improvement. These support the fundamental objective of promoting peace, understanding, and good relations.
