Da'wah among Non-Muslims

A view from Sri Lanka

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Da'wah is a duty for all Muslims. The Qur'an as the Muslim's most authentic book (kitab) provides a basic principle of da'wah methodologies (Q, Surah al-Nahl 16-125) to be applied by the Muslim preacher (da'i) in da'wah field. This very basic principle of da'wah methodologies however should be accommodated with the current situation and also with the background for certain societies. This article therefore tries to explore da'wah among non-Muslims in the context of Sri Lanka. The methodology used in developing this article is based on literatures related to the subject and also an observation of the da'wah situation in Sri Lanka. This study suggests that undertaking da'wah responsibility in Sri Lanka can be applied both individually and collectively by using all possible means.
