Raja’ book, co-authored with Christian van Nieuwerburgh, titled “Ershad: The Principles and Practice of Coaching in Islamic Culture, will be published in English by mid-2017. This book is long overdue and critical to the success of multi-cultural coaches who are or desire to coach individuals who are of the Islamic culture. The examples and explanations are clear in explaining the philosophy and spirituality underlying the Islamic culture – intention, piety, supplication, patience, contentment/satisfaction, focus on reality and the present, and so forth. Since Islam provides practical guidance about how Muslims conduct their lives on earth, it is important that coaches understand this practical guidance.

By containing actual text from the Qur’an followed by an example of how this impacts in the coaching relationship provides options for the non-Muslim coach to connect more deeply with the Muslim coachee and be of service in their journey. This book presents the Ershad framework that proposes three elements for effective coaching: skills, conversational process, and coaching way of being. Core to the Ershad framework is the Alignment Wheel, a tool that is used by many coaches with their clients. Unique about the Alignment Wheel is the addressing of four key relationships: beliefs, self, life, and people through the lens of the Qur’an.

For the Muslim or non-Muslim coach, this book is a must read for every coach who believes in weaving coaching into the tapestry of life while pioneering the next stage of human evolution.
