He was perfect for the job. He knew that he was inviting people to Allah and His prophet peace be upon him and that this city would be the base for the young and struggling Muslim community. Once in Madinah,. Many people accepted Islam. The man agreed.

He sat down and listened. It was clear that faith had entered his heart. He accepted Islam. The first ambassador of the Prophet peace be upon him was extremely successful. Sister Shysta from the nearby town of Redhill had organised a community event in a local park. She invited the local council including the mayor and churches to come and put up various stalls.

So myself, my son and another bro held this stall in this tiny park between a whole estate. Very unique place to have an open air event. I actually appreciate the organisers that they were creative enough to organise this within a living community where they could engage with wayward youth involved in petty crime. Anand approached the stall, inspecting the various booklets on display. Anand was a polite guy and listened carefully. He agreed. So I discussed the origins of the universe argument. He agreed it all made sense. So I announced earnestly, Anand! You actually believe in a creator!
Anand, taken aback a little, protested, no no, I worship knowledge and teachings of Buddha. I retorted, but who created knowledge? The mind?.. At this point I realised a general point in the dawah. That people agree when you break everything down, but when it is made clear to them, they will still protest… and cling on to their belief.
This is how us humans are, we will let our beliefs blind us from the obvious truth. So this is where us duaat need to empower people and tell them that they are sincere and compliment them, in this case that Anand took out the time to come to an obviously looking Muslim stall! Especially in an age of ultra right wing Hinduism campaigns against Muslims, Kashmir and all that! He even said that Modi is evil! But this niceness needs to be added to common sense and accept if something is made obvious to them.
In this case a creator of the universe.

When pressed, he said the Universe made itself. This is where I explained to him the prophetic truth. He listened and now seemed much more quite. I ended with pointing him to the direction of his research. To study the life of Muhammad saw and then look at what the eminent Non Muslim historians and biographers of the Prophet have said about him saw. The other highlight was when the main host of the event, who was blasting out loud music all day announced that if anyone has requests for music then come and tell us.
This was made in response to the horror of the Christchurch attack and to show the people of Redhill that Islam condemns mindless violence. As this was playing, a saw a few heads nodding and listening to the lyrics! May Allah swt accept our efforts. This is a two-part series on the concept of death. This is the second part. Check out Part One here! Having understood that death is an inevitability, what can we do to challenge the notion of death to lead a successful Muslim life?
This would make us peaceful at the thought of our actions being presented to Allah SWT and the entire concept of accountability would seem less intimidating. It is not prohibited to enjoy fun-filled social interactions, but we must make sure that our gatherings are not completely disconnected with our deen and thus, spiritually meaningless….

I hope these following tips would help them overcome this.
Continuity and Change
A Video complimenting this blog is available upon request:. As in a lot of things in life, I always take an unorthodox approach to confidence building techniques! My confidence began building up,first by hanging around amazingly cheeky brothers. Then the Dawah stall experience. For many years I used to literally stand and give out flyers and avoided discussion with passersby.
I was a street a fundraiser and a trainer for 8 years. In these 8 years I picked up many skills and I felt supremely confident. In all spheres of life. We should get into public speaking and in public situations again and again to desensitize fears. The more you put yourself up for speaking in front of a crowd the easier it will get. The very first time you do this, you will be a bag of nerves. But when you go through this grieving process a few times, it most definitely gets easier and your confidence grows. After this tough experience, you take this new-found confidence everywhere and anywhere!
Go through the stages of nervousness,fear and sweat. The sweat will whither away, nerves shall vanish and you will actually begin to enjoy giving lectures! Whether its presenting something at University,or your home or even online, keep at it!
Keep doing it. The mistakes will decrease. It gets easier.. Look forward to getting rejected or ignored. If you apply your mind to this, you will see how you will naturally become more confident in your demeanour! Rejection is your friend! Learn to love it!
Treat it as a game! Just go ahead and say the truth. Be more and more random.
Muslim Family Day
Start having small chats with random people. With the waiter at a restaurant. This will add to your repertoire as a generally all round confident individual. You fear mere letters coming out from the mouths of limited, fallible human beings?! Have a Fear of Allah, not his creation. Come on reflect upon this deeply..
These words cannot harm you at all. No words can adjust or impact your feeling with out your permission. So are you really going to let a mere look. A screw face or a raise of an eye brow, put you down?

They also argued that Ramadan's denial violated the First Amendment rights of those who wanted to hear him speak. Crotty ruled that the government's justification for denying Ramadan's visa was "facially legitimate and bona fide" and noted that the Court "has no authority to override the Government's consular decision". In Professor Ramadan's case and many others, the government is using immigration laws to stigmatize and exclude its critics and to censor and control the ideas that Americans can hear. Censorship of this kind is completely inconsistent with the most basic principles of an open society.
But I am encouraged by the unwavering support I have received from ordinary Americans, civic groups and particularly from scholars, academic organizations, and the ACLU. I am heartened by the emerging debate in the U. And I am hopeful that eventually I will be allowed to enter the country so that I may contribute to the debate and be enriched by dialogue.
On 17 July , the US federal appeals court reversed the ruling of the lower district court. Newman , Wilfred Feinberg and Reena Raggi — ruled that the Court had "jurisdiction to consider the claim, despite the doctrine of consular nonreviewability". They stated that government was required by law to "confront Ramadan with the allegation against him and afford him the subsequent opportunity to demonstrate by clear and convincing evidence that he did not know, and reasonably should not have known, that the recipient of his contributions was a terrorist organization.
