Ways for Muslim Women to Make Dawah from Home


1. Bake a cake for your neighbours

A simple gesture can change your neighbour’s perception of Islam and Muslims.

It is these day-to-day interactions that make people think twice about how Islam is portrayed in the media. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: ‘O Muslim women, do not think that any gift is too insignificant to give to a neighbour, even if it is only a sheep’s foot.’ (Bukhari, Muslim)


2. Start a Blog

Even if it is just to write about a verse of the Qur’aan that has affected you and you’ve learnt from Ulama, having a web presence is an effective da’wah tool.


3. Invite someone round for tea

Invite the Jehovah’s Witness lady who knocks on your door, for an informal chat. Let her learn a little something about Islam.


4. Teach your children

Bringing kids up to love the message of Islam is our most important Da’wah project! The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam said: ‘… A woman is the shepherd in the house of her husband and is responsible for her flock…’ (Bukhari)


5. Send money to a da’wah organisation

By sending money to organisations that print booklets or translations of the Qur’an you will not only be participating in da’wah, you’ll be rewarded for ongoing charity as your donation may mean someone accepting Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam taught, ‘By Allah, if Allah were to guide just one man through you it would be better for you than red camels.’ (Bukhari)
