    I am thinking to stop teaching my friend about islam.

    Report bad ads?

    Few months ago i came across a girl who wanted to learn about islam. I agreed to teach her. I taught her many things and sent her many videos. But she said she'll learn first,and then she'll convert. Then her phone got broke and we were unable to talk to each other. She said to me when she'll buy new phone, she'll give herwatsapp number to me and then i can teach her more and she'll convert. But till now, she hasn't given. She doesn't seem interested now. I am also very busy but still i can take out time to teach her but she isn't interested,it seems. I think i should stop contacting her by myself. Everytime I initiate the chat, i feel i am forcing her to islam. She never contacts by herself, if she is interested,she will text me. Any opinions?

    I guess it depends on how you're reaching out to her. If you feel like the dawah is pushing her away, stick to simple conversations like "Hi how have you been" type of things. Maybe that will help initiate longer conversations which will allow you to talk about Islam in the future.

    She probably needs a break because there is a lot to digest in Islam.
    It took me roughly 2 years from the time I started gathering information about Islam until the day I took my shahada.
    If she doesn't give you her whatsapp then you can't contact her anyway. InshaAllah she will accept Islam someday

    I think all It matters is that you planted the seed...know it depends on her. Give her time and Inshallah Allah will work it out the best

    I would have s as said to her, "there is only One God and Mohammed was the Last Messenger of God." Provide her with a leaflet. End of story; she decides.

    I think if a person gives too much information then the subject would find it hard to comprehend.

    I remember the first things I was taught are from this website

    A Brief illustrated guide to understanding Islam https://www.islam-guide.com/

    InshaAllah will help her learn about Islam as well

    This site on Islam is a brief illustrated guide for non-Muslims who'd like to understand Islam, Muslims (Moslems), and the Quran (Koran). This Islamic guide is simple to read and informative....
