Women engaging in da’wah activities

Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.5790, Page 229, Volume 11

Question: How does a woman engage in da’wah activities if she has knowledge and enthusiasm for da’wah to Allaah? And what should her approach [in giving da’wah] be? And where should she engage in da’wah activities?

Response: The approach she should adopt is what Allaah has commanded with in His statement:

{Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best}, soorah an-Nahl, aayah 125

And as for where [she should engage in da’wah activities], then they should be gatherings of women [only], such as schools and other than them. So she should go there and invite them to Allaah ‘Azza wa Jall [baring in mind] that every situation necessitates an appropriate approach, so it is possible for her to ascertain whether a situation necessitates encouragement or warning – or a combination of both – according to the situation [at hand]. So the places where she can engage [in da’wah activities] are gatherings of women only; as for the gatherings of men, then they are [specific] for the men.
