I want to share my story for how I became a Muslim 9 years ago. I chose Islam in 2001 through my ex-husband. He told me a lot about Islam and when I first visited Mecca I knew Islam was for me.
Later on I saw a movie of prophet Muhammad (SAWS) showing his life, which made my cry a lot. What a great mission assigned to such a noble man.
My parents and elder sister wasn’t happy with my reversion to Islam and decided to cut me off. For 6 years I had no contact with them. Furthermore, the wearing of hijab in a western country was difficult, however I got used to it.
Unfortunately last year my husband and I had a divorce, but my love for Islam remained. And with Allah’s (SWT) grace I also got back in touch with my parents and sister. They now accept me for who I am.
Sura 29 - Al-Ankaboot [The Spider] Verse 69-69: 69. And those who strive in Our (cause),- We will certainly guide them to our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right.
Changing The World Through Da'wah
The misfortunes occuring to the Muslims is simply due to the fact that Muslims are moving away from the true teachings of Islam, as taught by Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him). The world will be a better place if Islam is revived back into the Muslims' lives and ultimately, spread to the rest of the world.
Dawah In The West
These days, Dawah is becoming more and more important to Muslims living in the West. With so much misinformation splashed around about Islam and Muslims. It's time we increase our knowledge and be prepared to rectify this misinformation, whether it be our neighbours, work colleagues or school friends.
In this lecture, Shaykh Khalid Yasin touches on many important aspects of Dawah and different scenarios we may come across.
Dawah Technique Course
Allah's Messenger said, "If anyone calls others to follow right guidance, his reward will be equivalent to those who follow him without their reward being diminished". As Muslims we are always presented with the opportunity to give Dawah but few of us take up this great challenge. Why is this the case? Are we too afraid to propagate the truth, do we lack the correct knowledge or are we just in need of Dawah our selves? Insha Allah, no more can we accept excuses for not being at the forefront of Islamic propagation. Why? Shaykh Khalid Yasin, the worlds most eminent Daee in giving Dawah directly to the non-Muslim population and having been Blessed by Allah The All Giver, the gift of bringing many thousands of people to Islam, has now let us into his mind, his techniques and his motivation behind his success. This 4 seminar series is without doubt, not only the best, but also the only Dawah course available to Muslims living in non-Muslims environments. Clear your mind and open your heart to accept what Shaykh Khalid teachers and implement it to further your own Dawah objectives and increase your Imaan Insha Allah.
