Assalam Alaikum,

Are you looking to get involved with dawah, but don’t know how to start?  There’s many ways whether it is in your community or on the internet.  You can do dawah with your family, friends, or anyone else.  You can do dawah with Muslims or non-Muslims.  Just make sure you take advantage of your time and call the people to Allah (SWT)!

Remember, our duty in dawah is not specifically to convert people to Islam, rather it is to inform them.  However, it is our duty to perform dawah or else we will be held responsible for not calling the people to the truth.  Even if our knowledge of Islam is limited, we know the basics (i.e. 5 pillars) and we can call people using just the basics.

If you are looking for a Dawah Pamphet to use for your MSA or do you give to the people you know, feel free to use: https://mustaqeem.files.wordpress.com/2008/02/islamflyer1.doc 

You are more than welcome to edit the Dawah Pamphlet to fit your needs.  My email address is in it right now, but if you would prefer you may edit it to give your own email address.

Other ways to get involved with dawah on the internet is through blogging (an example being the blog you are reading right now!).  YouTube can also became quite popular in terms of the potential that exists within it (I can be found at http://www.youtube.com/coolguymuslim).  Additionally, feel free to join my YahooGroup at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ahadithaweek if you would like to receive weekly emails from me.  Facebook and MySpace have enormous potential for Dawah, but just make sure not to waste time on these social networking website!

Dawah within your own community is very important as well.  Whether you encourage your friends to pray on time or you tutor at an after-school program, there are numerous ways to get involved.  One amazing opportunity that often gets overlooked is being a Sunday School Teacher at your local masjid where one will be able to reap the rewards of teaching others for years to come even after one’s retirement from Sunday School.  Check out this post for ideas and motivation!

If you need help with dawah ideas or you would like to consult someone about your project or you are looking to contribute, feel free to get in touch with Tampa Dawah at tampa.dawah@gmail.com.

Jazak’Allahkhair!

    Assalamualaykum,

    I was wondering if you had any ideas for running a da’wah kiosk. I’m specifically interested in trying to start da’wah conversations with students who pass by our MSA kiosk in college. I find it hard to get them to stop and talk to us for a moment.

    Jazakallahu khair for the pamphlet and post. 🙂
