DAWA

The first pillar of Islam is Shahadah. Shahadah means bearing witness to the Truth. Not only do we enter Islam by declaring our Shahadah, but we intend to be successful in the Hereafter by bearing witness to the Truth with our deeds and words in this life. Shahadah was the job assignment of Prophet Muhammad, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him. After the Prophet, now it is the personal and collective duty of Muslims to invite humanity to follow the guidance from our Creator.

Dawa, invitation to Islam, is the major part of Shahadah. This page is dedicated to provide helpful resources for Dawa.

  • Some Tips on Dawa ( date added: 12/3/2000 )
    First off, make sure you have both ikhlaas and i'tibaa - sincerity in intention and correction of action. Is your intention truly to bring this person closer to the truth? Or is it to prove him wrong?
  • Understanding the needs ( date added: 12/3/2000 )
    Understanding the needs of converts necessitates incorporating their observations and experiences into one's own. While every convert is different, and his/her experiences may differ to some extent, the majority of converts do conform to a certain mold
  • Conveying Islam In Schools and Colleges ( date added: 12/3/2000 )
    Dawah means to invite non-Muslim to accept the truth of Islam. Performing Dawah involves both our words and actions
  • The Call of the Creator of Earth and Light ( date added: 12/3/2000 )
    Allah has revealed many verses in the Qur'an which advise us to travel and see the world. (6:11) This, of course, is not a command to go on vacation constantly, rather, it is meant as a learning experience

Ayah of the Day
And (remember) when you met (the army of the disbelievers on the Day of the battle of Badr), He showed them to you as few in your eyes and He made you appear as few in their eyes, so that Allh might accomplish a matter already ordained (in His Knowledge), and to Allh return all matters (for decision). [Al-Anfal 8 : 44]
Hadith of the Day
Narrated Hudhaifa: Allahs Messenger said, A backbiter will not enter Paradise. (Agreed upon)
Quote of the Day
"Anyone who wants to be true in his love for God and His Messenger, or desires that God and His Messenger should love him, he should always speak the truth, fulfill all trusts entrusted to him, and be a good neighbour." Hadith
