  • "Whoever hides knowledge, Allah will brand him
    with the branding iron from the hellfire."

  • Indeed messengers before you, Muhammad, were
    denied and rejected but they patiently bore the
    denial, rejection and harm of their people until
    Our aid came to them.
  • ???????? ??? ????? ????????? ??? ????????? ????
    ???????? ?????? ??????? ??????? ???? ?????????

    people except that the said, He I a sorcerer
    and/or madman.

    enemy fro the idol worshippers

    you, Gradualy.

  • So be patient with what your Lord has decreed

  • (They said "Are you the one who has done this to
    our gods, O Ibrahim'' He said "Nay, this one,
    the biggest of them did it...'') referring to the
    one he had left alone and had not broken.
  • (Ask them, if they can speak!) He was hoping that
    they would admit of their own volition that these
    idols could not speak and that this idol would
    not say anything because it was inanimate.
  • (64. So they turned to themselves and said
    "Verily, you are the wrongdoers.'') (65. Then
    they turned to themselves "Indeed you know well
    that these speak not!'') (66. He said "Do you
    then worship besides Allah, things that can
    neither profit you nor harm you'') (67. "Fie upon
    you, and upon that which you worship besides
    Allah! Have you then no sense'')

  • Questionnaire Retarded why?
  • Questions you can ask
  • What is the Purpose of Life?
  • Trinity three in one or one in three?
  • sit at my right hand?
  • how many Gods where there when Jesus died for
    three days?
  • Why never an explicit mention of Trinity in the
    Bible since it is the crux of the religion?
  • Most people think problems with their religion
    automatically apply to others.

Use Stories
  1. Religion under microscope, can't all be right
    (there are as many paths), no flaws no
    inconsistencies, discrepancies, contradictions
  2. Human value system
  3. Humans affected by environment and society. Dog
    and child
  4. Evil and Jar of darkness
  5. Religion and violence
  6. most violence not because of religion
  7. Media, politics vs. pure teaching to kill
  8. Women polygyny 112 Media and culture blame

Use Stories cont
  1. Concept of Justice, child hits head, resurrection
    fairness judgment
  2. Prophet continuation chart
  3. Organized religion
  4. look back at life, many long years, moments and
    days, good times just memories can't do anything
    with them. Might as well invest time and worship
  5. Kill someone if apostatize, cut off hands. Eye
    on the ball!
  6. Jesus and Moses mentioned in Quran more than
    Mohammed .
  7. Tawheed no partner mention children, wives,
    friends helpers, ridiculous .
  8. Explain concept/ logic then ask problem with
    logic then explain how one becomes a Muslim

Why do people convert
  • Agrees with human nature and makes sense
  • Prayers
  • solutions
  • devotion of Islam's followers,
  • Terrorism!

Create the Sense of Urgency
  • Uqbah ibn abi Mueet
  • Omar ibn Al khattab
  • Abu sufyaan
  • Say La ilaha ilalah

How to approach people
Direct and Indirect approaches
How to approach people
  • Indirect Approach
  • Dawah through manners and behavior
  • Having a discussion with a friend or partner
    intending for non-Muslims to hear it
  • Performing acts of worship in Public
  • Story of girl and prayer/airport
  • Foot in the sink
  • American with picture of Kaaba
  • Leaving pamphlets on train and bus seats/ bus
    stations/ in doorstep etc
  • Other methods

How to approach people
  • Direct Approach
  • If you have a dawah table
  • In street dawah the approach is very straight
    forward here.
  • Very direct. What is the purpose of life?
  •  But in an elevator or store? How? What ways are
    there to strike up a conversation?

How to approach people
  • Direct Approach
  • Are you a Muslim?
  • Why not?
  • From this response you see how far or close they
    are to Islam

Believe in God but not organized religion?
  1. Disorganized ?
  2. Fallacy of religion and war.
  3. Evil in the world/ Jar of darkness.
  4. What is good and what is bad?
  5. Science Quran
  7. Islam fastest growing religion for a reason
  8. All claim to have the truth, put religion under
    the microscope

  • Building in desert /watch in the woods.
    Ridiculous to come from nothing.
  • How did we hear of creator? Upstairs neighbor.
  • Fairness/ sending prophets
  • Justice.
  • Authored a Book, no flaws/ consistent.
  • Sit-down
  • Fastest growing religions.

Other faith
  • If you were of the same faith before then share!
  • Two theories
  • 'Strong faith' shake the foundations , when they
    reel back then show them Islam
  • 'weaker faith', don't get into biblical debate
    unless necessary, just present Islam, it makes
    more sense and is more acceptable in its theories
