Unexpected dawah

Today my son's friend came over for a playdate and when his mom came to pick him up she said the famous words I always hear; can I ask you some questions? Then she proceeded to ask me about how I became muslim and started talking to me about of all things The Arrivals. Apparently they have been hacked quite extensively..makes you wonder what people are trying to hide. We talked for awhile and I sent her on her way with gems from my secret stash; a Quran, a booklet and some pamphlets about Islam. A daiee must always be prepared.


  1. I am enjoying reading your blog sister and loving it so much.
    What a great gift to be able to immpress someone with Islam b/c you are a good muslim , jazaky Allah khair.

  2. Masha Allah glad that you are enjoying it.

  3. i remember you telling me this...anything ever happen after that

  4. I haven't heard back from her yet. We'll see what happens.

  5. Assalam Alaykum,
    May I ask you a couple of questions?

    1) What did you tell her about why you became Muslim?

    2)If someone asks you why you wear a hijaab, what do you tell them?

    I am a 'born' Muslim, but I get stumped at all questions, as if I don't know why I do it. I am so bad at communicating things. I need to work on that.


  6. Wa Alaikum Salaam

    1) Why I became muslim. Can't remember if I told her everything but I usually tell people about my 7 yr search due to the fact that I was unhappy with my church's new rules; abortion and homosexuality were now ok in their eyes. On top of that is the fact that I never accepted the trinity. Islam on the other hand stresses the unity of God as well as forbids abortion and homosexuality.

    2) As for hijab I tell people its God's rule to protect us from harrassment.

  7. JazakAllah Khayr,

    Yeah, I had a friend comment on my facebook on the logical aspect of the indivisible nature of God (she is not Muslim). It is one of the most attractive aspects of Islam.

    BTW, I really like your blog!!

  8. Yes tawhid is the most important feature in Islam. Can you believe that when I was Christian I thought that muslims worshipped an idol? When muslims do dawah they often fail to mention that Allah means God. The newspapers always say :the muslim god Allah. Notice the small g? It gives the idea that Allah is an idol instead of the creator of the universe.

    Masha Allah I am happy you are enjoying my blog. Insha Allah it will be useful for everyone.
