Da’wah Training Course

An event not to be missed by people involved in da’wah work (or who wish to do Da’wah)

Background
Dawah is an obligation on every Muslim individual. However, the failure of our community to engage in effective dawah has meant that even with 2 million Muslims in the UK, there are many misconceptions surrounding Islam. Muslims wishing to carry out dawah are often unable to do so due to a lack of knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to communicate the message of Islam in a more professional way.
This course has been designed specifically with these problems in mind.

Course Aims

This course aims to allow attendants to more effectively respond to the command of our Allah “Invite (all) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching..” (Qur’an 16:125 ) through the following means:

1. Giving an introduction to prevalent Western ideologies on which to contextualise dawah
2. Equipping dawah workers with skills for effective dawah projects
3. Instructing on the appropriate integration of new Muslims
4. Clarifying some of the misconceptions about Islam
5. The construction of a network of dawah workers for mutual support and communication

This event is organized in association with Khizra Masjid
