The Methodology of Dawah Manual
The Methodology of Dawah represents a core concept in Dawah. It highlights how the greatest evidence for the existence of God is the Qur'an itself. By means of what is known as "the Miraculous Argument" it allows the Da'ee to delve straight into a Qur'an focused Dawah conversation; overruling any need to resort to complex and digressive philosophical arguments. It is a manual that offers a structured approach to delivering the message of Islam while detailing practical steps of implementation. It is without doubt useful to both the beginner and seasoned practitioner.
The manual is freely available to anyone around the globe, in order to help them develop their Dawah skills. The methodology of dawah manual is freely available; to be copied, distributed, translated or hosted on websites for the promotion and development of Dawah.

Dawah Is An Obligation Upon Us All
Allah (glorified and exalted be He) says in the Qur'an, "Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: they are the ones to attain felicity." (Al-Qur'an 3:104)
Most Muslims know that Islam is a universal religion, meant for all mankind.Allah (glorified and exalted be He) is the Lord of the entire Universe, and Muslims have been entrusted with the duty of conveying His message to all mankind. Alas, most today have become callous towards this duty! while accepting Islam as the best way of life for ourselves, most of us are unwilling to share this knowledge with those to whom the message has not yet been conveyed.
Allah (glorified and exalted be He) says in the Qur'an "Ah! Who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah? But Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!" [Al-Qur'an 2:140]
In order to convey the message of Islam, dialogue and debate become inevitable.
New Muslim Guide
Great day today spent delivering New Muslim Guide gift packs to new muslims.
Brother Hisham Salim sent us a box of 'The New Muslim Guide' and even covered the postage & packaging costs, may Allah (Glorified & Exalted Be HE) reward our brother and his family and all involved, for supporting us and helping us to help others.
Brother Yusuf who I met for a coffee was extremely pleased with his copy, as he browsed through the book he told me "this is very informative and answers so many question that I have on certain topics such as Shawaal, Eid and the upcoming Hajj"
He practices what he learns and has developed a strong connection to his Islamic faith and knows that Allah is always there for him whenever he needs to call upon his Lord.
One problem he has found amongst some muslims is that they will tell him don't do this or don't do that but wont be able to explain why! which is why informative books such as this should really be of benefit to him. He intends to study as much as is easy for him and then act upon it.
This exquisitely illustrated guide presents new muslims with the first step and the foundation stage in learning about this great religion, which is undoubtedly the best blessing Allah has bestowed upon man. It provides new muslims with guidelines in most aspects of life that they may encounter, responds to their urgent queries and gives them ample support to deal with people around them and successfully deal with the various situations in which they are most likely to find themselves in.

Dawah In The Workplace
That'll be £8.90 please and by the way can I ask you a question!
What is the purpose of life ?
There are lots of diffrent ways we can engage with the public.
Effective da'wah is done in a gentle and loving manner. I'll never forget a da'wah course I attended, in which the speaker said that the best way to give da'wah is to "plant a seed in a person's heart". The purpose of da'wah is not to convert people as having that as goal will scare people away if nothing else. Instead, by planting a seed, we leave the person wanting more; let them know enough about Islam to interest them and, insha Allah, lead them to want to find out more when they are ready.
"I find people are genuinly intrested in Islam and when they see my beard they tend to ask me why I keep it,which leads onto further questions and good progressive dialogue.I find many of my passengers don't know much about Islam other then what the media protrays and as such they feel enlightened about discovering the beautiful reality of Islam.
