Engaging in Da’wah activities

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.6403, Pages 234-235, Volume 12

Question: How should the Muslim engage in inviting [da’wah] to Islaam? And what is the best way to undertake da’wah [activities]?

Response: The Muslim invites to Islaam by travelling around and talking to the people and preaching to them. As for [engaging in] general da’wah [activities], then this is done in the masaajid, schools and places of gathering.

And the best approach to da’wah is to begin with the Book of Allaah and then the example of His Messenger (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), as he (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

«Indeed, the best of speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best of guidance is the guidance of Muhammad (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)» – transmitted by al-Bukhaaree and Muslim
