Is There an Islamic Communication Theory?

A theory whose relevance or validity is limited to certain people, or pertinent only under certain social circumstances is not yet a theory; at best it is a loose hypothesis workable for a limited area. If we could claim to have communication theories that are more pertinent to Japan, Korea and Taiwan than they are to other societies, then, by the same token, we could have theories more pertinent to Tokyo, Seoul, Taipei than they are to other societies, and moreover, more pertinent to specifi c communities in Tokyo, Seoul and Taipei.
