5. How to approach people: Indirect vs. Direct.

  • How to approach people
    • Indirect
      • Da’wah through your actions, manners and behaviors
      • Perform act of worship in public
      • Have a discussion with a friend intended for a non-muslim to hear
      • Leave pamphlets in buses, train, on benches, etc
    • Direct
      • Da’wah table
      • Street Da’wah

6. Other Tips: Common Reasons Why Non-Muslims Don’t Take the Shahadah

  • Common Reasons why Non-Muslims don’t take the “Shahadah”
    • They are looking for a ‘sign’
    • Misconceptions about Islam/ Muslims/ Religion
    • Influences of Family & Society

7. Other Tips: How to Approach Christians

  • How to Approach Christians
    • The Trinity concept: Christians believe in the ‘three in one’ approach – God, Jesus (peace be upon him), and the Holy Spirit
      • They compare this to Water (in three states: solid, liquid, gas) or an Egg (the shell, yolk, white)
      • Trinity is not mentioned in the Bible. Ask them about this.
    • How did the people before Jesus (pbuh) reach salvation? There were many prophets that came before Jesus (pbuh) what about them?
    • Who do you pray to..Jesus (pbuh)? or God?
    • Christians believe that Jesus (pbuh) is God/ he is God’s son. How is this possible? God is above human creation.
    • God is self-sufficient and does not need food or water. Why did Jesus (pbuh) drink and eat when he was on this earth? If you believe he is God, then God doesn’t need to drink or eat.
    • God is eternal, self sufficient, and infinite. Whereas humans are needy and temporary. Jesus was born -lived – died (according to Christians). Therefore he can not be God because God can not be both infinite and finite.
    • Trinity does not support the idea of monotheism. There cannot be three parts/ multiple creators because there would be chaos in the universe
    • One cannot compare the ‘CREATOR’ to the creation
    • Christians believe that Jesus (pbuh) is on God’s right hand. If he is God then why would he be on his own right hand?
8. Other Tips: How to Approach Atheists
How to Approach Atheists
  • Its simple. Everything on earth was created by a CREATOR – Allah (swt).
  • Analogy: If you have a junkyard and a tornado rips through it, and afterwards a fully functional car remains. How did that car come to be there?
