Islamic Center of Boca Raton hosting a Dawa Workshop on Sunday, May 18th, 11am- 2pm (Zuhr). Br. Thomas Isaac will be performing the workshop.
Please come with your friends and families to learn first hand how to perform Dawa according to the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad (SAWS).
An important matter for Muslims to realize is that Dawah is an obligation upon them. Allah (SWT) says in the Quran:
“Invite to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islam) with wisdom and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He is the Best Aware of those who are guided.” (Quran, an-Nahl: 125)
Calling people to Allah also means completing our own worship, the reason for which we are created. It is one of the noblest acts that entails a high reward.
“And who is better in speech than he who (says: ‘My Lord is Allah (believes in His Oneness),’ and then stands straight (acts upon His Order), and) invites (men) to Allah (Islamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: ‘I am one of the Muslims.’ (Quran, Fussilat: 33)
