Da'wah Etiquette


This book was compiled with the help of Allah (_), to describe step by step on how to become a successful Dayee and do effective Da'wah according to the Quran and Sunnat of Rasul (oi). Allah (fj) says to give Da'wah with Hekmat (wisdom) (An-Nahl:125). Rasul (;i) said to propagate even if you know one ayat of Quran (Bukhari). Rasul (;i) and Sahabas (~)made tremendous sacrifice to deliver the message of Islam to the farthest corner of the world. As a follower of the Last Messenger (:i), it is an obligatory duty on all Muslims to do Da'wah. This book was compiled with various references from Quran & Hadith on different virtues of Amals, selected stories of the sacrifices of Sahaba, outline on how to do Da'wah with Hekmat; structures of different Bayans (speech), selected topics for effective speech; how to compose a speech model for certain group and certain situation; various information to organize and coordinate Da'wah activities worldwide. Hekmat of Da 'wah has no limits. It needs to be developed through Experience, Training, Fikr, Knowledge, Sacrifice, Patience, Du'a (supplications) as quickly as possible to become a successful Dayee. Hekmat of Da'wah should be presented in such a way so that each can feel s/he can do it. Lot of motivation and encouragement should be done continuously to keep the importance of Da'wah in front of us and to do for the sake of Allah (~)according to the way of Rasul (;i). May Allah (~)accept all of us for this noble effort of Da'wah and make us big winners in the life hereafter.
