  • LEARN A TERM
What is Dawah?
According to many scholars in this field the term DA'WAH applies to convey the message of 
Islam to non-Muslims and inviting them to Allah. Non-practicing and lost Muslims need to be reeducated and motivated to become better Muslims; they already know Allah (SWT) and have 
been given the concept of TAWHEED. Some objectives of Dawah are as follows:
(a) Conveying the message of Islam to non-Muslims and inviting them to Allah
(b) Making efforts to remove misinformation about Islam and Muslims from text books, reference material and media,
(c) Making efforts for the integration of new Muslims into the Muslim community,
(d) To develop material resources, recruit manpower (volunteer) and provide training 
for da'wah workers.
One must realize that the goal of Dawah to non-Muslims is not to convert them, in fact do not 
expect it, but the goal is to inform them and educate them. That is our only duty. Dawah with 
the intention of conversion might make you too aggressive and might make you come on too 
strong, hence scaring them away.

196 - "How perfect You are O Allah, and I praise You. I bear witness
that None has the right to be worshipped except You. I seek Your
forgiveness and turn to You in repentance."


سُبْحـانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمدِك، أَشْهَـدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيْك
Subhânaka l-lâhumma wa bi-hamdika. Ash-hadu an lâ ilâha illâ
anta, astaghfiruka wa atûbu ilayka.


If any of this information was good and true, know that it comes from Allah subhanahu
wa ta’ala.  If there are mistakes we ask for Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy.
