Earlier at work, I was speaking to my non-Muslim colleagues about Islam. Something that one of my colleagues said hit me really hard.
She kindly asked me ‘Your religion doesn’t seem united, you fight amongst yourselves, you see Muslims killing Muslims, how do you expect us to understand Islam?’
Subhanallah, her question made me think long and hard, and it’s true, how do you expect us to spread da'wah, invite people to Islam when some people amongst our beautiful religion haven’t got the slightest clue about akhlaq & aqeedah. 😪
May Allah allow us to be amongst those that He is pleased with.
We are happy to announce that we have got enough Dawah material to give out to Non-Muslims, Alhamdulillah.. All we need now is more English Qurans because we only have a few, please donate by emailing us at email@example.com
We will be giving dawah in Birmingham City Center next week or so and we will be needing your Dua’s!
The Muslims of the Arizona mosque invited the armed anti-Islam protesters to join the evening prayer. This is what happened when two of the protesters actually accepted the invitation….
Jason Leger, a Phoenix resident wearing one of the profanity-laced shirts, accepted an invitation to join the evening prayer inside the mosque, and said the experience changed him.
“It was something I’ve never seen before. I took my shoes off. I kneeled. I saw a bunch of peaceful people. We all got along,” Leger said. “They made me feel welcome, you know. I just think everybody’s points are getting misconstrued, saying things out of emotion, saying things they don’t believe.”
Paul Griffin, who had earlier said he didn’t care if his t-shirt was offensive, assured a small crowd of Muslims at the end of the rally that he wouldn’t wear it again.
“I promise, the next time you see me, I won’t be wearing this shirt,” he told one man while shaking his hand and smiling. “I won’t wear it again.”
“Convey from me even if it is one verse” - Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
Islam will spread with you or without you. I can’t tell you how much people have benefitted from the pictures and videos I post. Every Muslim who uses the internet must spend their time wisely. I might not be alive tomorrow, something can happen to me. I need brothers and sisters who can take my place if anything happens. The internet is the best tool to get something across to millions around world. Pictures and videos can go viral in a matter of seconds.
Here are some ways you can volunteer:
Speakers: If you are a motivated speaker who wants to spread the message of Islam by your voice then you can volunteer to be a regular speaker on our Youtube Channel.

ربنا لا تجعلنا فتنة للذين كفروا واغفر لنا
Our Lord, make us not [objects of] torment for the disbelievers and forgive us
Qur’an, Sūrat al-Mumtaḥanah (60:5)
I don’t normally add commentary to the verses I post but this is an exception. As a Muslim your character is so important. You always see someone losing their cool with another. Or we hassle someone when we could have done something without them. Islam is so beautiful because if followed correctly, it can honestly create the closest thing (if not an actual) to a Utopia. Treating family and other Muslims with kindness is already mentioned several times but your neighbours also has a right over you. And on top of all that, there’s an actual supplication in the Qur’an where you’re asking Allah swt to not be a burden/nuisance to non-muslims. Your character and your actions will invite people to Islam.
