Abstract

Da'wah (invitation) in the term, used in Islam, to invite people to Islam. This does not necessarily mean that the sole purpose of da'wah is to make the person Muslim, but rather to inform people the faith and teachings of Islam and also to promote social harmony. It is up to people whether to accept the massage of Islam or not. Therefore, Islamic da'wah never forced people to accept its massage or teaching. In relation to this, Islam suggests da'i (preacher) to present and convey the message of Islam wisely (bi al-hikmah in Arabic /Qur'anic term). This paper, try to explore the Experience of the Department of Da'wah, Faculty of Islamic Studies, National University of Malaysia in propagating the message of Islam through the method of social services. This particular approach has been done in various places in Non-Muslim community in Peninsular Malaysia. The paper will, however concentrates on da'wah through social services among Orang Asli or aborigines of Malaysia. The method proved very important in delivering Islamic da'wah massage among non-Muslim community.
