Best Dawah Qur’an and the Sunnah

Many people have a very high niyyah in calling others to Islam. Many of us go about it the wrong way. Telling others a about  what is wrong with there relgion is not the way of our beloved prophet (sall Allahu alaihi wa sallam). What better dawah than the Qur’an and the Sunnah. What got my attetnion about Islam was the charcter of Muslims of was around at the time before me entering Islam. Do see the answer below from SunniPath.com

Dawah: Some Questions about the Bible

Dawah: Some Questions about the Bible

As-Salamu `alaykum:

I could not help but notice that the Questions brought up show that this well-meaning da`i still has a way to go before qualifying, if he chooses that technique of da`wa so to speak.

I remember that as a Christian I was uninterested in discussions of Christianity with Muslims but wanted to hear about Islam and the Qur’an. Most Muslims who do da`wah as far as I know as not truly qualified to discuss the Gospels or the Bible in terms other than what the Qur’an says.

Nor should they need to know other than the Qur’an among Scriptures, even when approaching Ahl al-Kitab. To look into their books was definitely frowned upon by the Prophet himself, upon him blessings and peace, unless one happened to come from that background i.e. as a convert.

It would be best to focus on presenting attractive models of Islamic teaching and practice, not debates about the Trinity or the Bible.

This is, at least, the advice of Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad and is borne out by the practice of Shaykh Nuh Keller.

However, if one is still interested in this then I suppose Brother Shibli Zaman would be a reference in such debates. He has a website and can be looked up on the internet insha Allah.

Was-Salam
