Dawah is the act of inviting non-muslims to Islam.
The objective in Islamic theology is to invite everyone, both Muslims and non-Muslims, to understand God’s worship as revealed in the Qur’an and the prophet Muhammad (PBUH)’s sunnah, and to inform them about Muhammad(PBUH).
Muhammad (PBUH) began conveying the Qur’an’s message to people through Dawah, which means “calling to God.” Muhammad, his followers, and the Ummah (Muslim community) came after him.
Dawah manuals, books, and guides are educational materials that provide a framework and approach for non-Muslims to embrace and convert to Islam. For non-muslim individual or collective audiences, as well as socio-religious groups such as atheists, Buddhists, and others, the manuals provide thorough guidance on how to conduct discourse, numerous strategies, and precise processes of conducting dawah.
Physical workshops and training sessions are used to provide training to Da‘i. Online video classes, webinars, online discussion forums, handouts, and quizzes are also available for training.
Prophet Nuh is an example of how we can learn to give dawah by looking at how he called people to Allah’s deen for 950 years. Another example is Omar ibn Al-Khattab, whose father’s donkey was supposed to convert to Islam before he did. But, by Allah’s will, Omar became one of the Caliphs to guide Islam following the Prophet’s death, and he is one of the ten promised Jannah.
