  • Dawah in history

    From an Islamic perspective, there is absolutely no compulsion on people to embrace it. People have always entered Islam willingly.

  • Women in Da'wah - II

    A definite role The work of the Muslim woman in the field of Da'wah (call to Islam) strengthens the man's work, and expands it into areas where her effectiveness supersedes that of the man.

  • Calling to Islam - the duty of every Muslim

    While all the messengers appointed by Allah were charged by Him with the responsibility to disseminate the revealed guidance with which they were entrusted, their respective nations too, were called upon to share in the fulfilment of Allah’s orders.

  • The weakness of Muslims: The causes and the cure

    Allah Almighty has promised victory for this Ummah (Muslim nation), even if it be after a long stretch of time. Unfortunately, the Ummah today is passing through a bitter state of division, discord and weakness, incurring regress and humiliation, so much so that the heart of any Muslim is painfully affected. But this should not cause us to forget Allah’.. More

  • Advise with Sincerity and Kindness

    The one who invites others to Allah is from the closest people to Allah our Lord.

  • Raising new Muslim generations

    The greatest concern of the conversant Muslim reformer is to raise a new Muslim generation that deserves to be named the 'victorious generation'. This is the top priority of our nation.

  • Start with yourself before others

    Who to start with? In Da'wah (call to Islam), start with yourself before the members of your family and other people and look at what is lacking in you in order that you may start treating it. So if there is a common deficiency between you and one of your companions or family members, then join him with you in resolving this problem because the Messenger.. More

  • The problems facing modern civilization

    A contemporary commentator once observed that just as perversion has set in Western society, it has also taken root in Muslim society.
