Proper way of Dawah

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

Dawah literally means to call but is often referred to as the act of preaching Islam.  Dialogue, discussions and presentations are part of dawah however, exemplifying and acting upon what you preach in is very important as well.

Here are a few useful tips to remember whilst giving dawah:

Take advantage when their heart is subtle or soft.  If some calamity has hit them people do think about the hereafter and try to rectify themselves
Avoid being to overly ‘preachy’ or arrogant in front of them
Try to take them to other scholars or lecturers who can also talk to them
Be patient with them.  People do not change overnight

Allah (SWA) in the Holy Quran has said ‘Invite to the way of your lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and discus with them in the ways that are best and most gracious’. (Surah An-Nahl v.125)

Only Allah Knows Best
