Salaam brothers and sisters reading this.
I know it sounds strange saying 'dawah to a muslim' but I have a friend/family friend and she is a muslim so to say and i am quite close to her. However her family did not teach her or her siblings islam. Most things they do are haram in fact.. Aplogies if im saying this all wrong.

As a friend/sister in islam im sure it is my duty to guide her a little. I do say things but it hasn't done much. I dont know how to say it because she is a family friend and i dont want to offend her or make her feel i am patronising. I feel guilty sometimes when I see the way they are living like islam does not exist. When i think about day of judgement and what life really means I get scared and looking at people who are going to the wrong path makes me think.. What should I do? And is it my duty to do something? :-[

Sis you did your job, which was to convey Islam to them. The best form of dawah is through your actions i.e. being humble, gentle, kind and a good listener. All these things and more, if seen through your actions inshaAllah soon they might take notice. Ultimately in the end, Allah(swt) is the one who guides. Just continue to make du'a for them. If your friend has questions, inshaAllah be ready to answer and help her or even direct her here :)

All the best xx

Well sis when it comes to things that suits 'them' then yeah.. but sometimes theyre things that are an out dated version of islam and i mean things like when people go mad to finish the Quran but now people are learning more about grammer and the meaning. They do fast during Ramadhan mashallah but dont always pray or eat halal food :s i feel bad saying this but when u stay with people who are not very islamic some people get tempted to be like them. Bad habits seem appealing n u feel oppressed.

Im not saying i feel like that lol but with many ppl its like that. Inshallah I will do duah for them :)

AsSalamOAlaikum WaRehmatuAllah WaBarkatuhu

When it comes to dawah, it is very important to be practising yourself. As well as have some kind of understanding of the topics your mentioning. Also you have to be patient and make lots of dua's.

Finally, always do everything for the sake of Allah Subhana WaTa'ala.


FiAmaaniAllah

you should speak to her indirectly, like you can say "you know i was reading the other day ..." or "so and so (a friend of yours or someone online) said ..." and tell her about the punishments in the grave, hell, etc. a little bit at a time. not a long lecture, but maybe a few minutes long. You can recite verses of the Quraan about these things and see if they affect her. or maybe you two can get together with another practicing muslima and then you and the other practicing muslima can talk about a religious topic (punishment in hell or the importance of being a good muslim or all the drawbacks of the kufr system) & see if it affects this sister. Furthermore, whenever she sends you religious text messages, reply with a good religious message. Insha-Allah in time she may start to change.

May Allah guide everyone.

So true, my mum mentions alot when they come over they seem so interested and listen but never act upon it which is a shame. Inshallah I will make it a small mission to try my best to help her after all it is kinda my duty and i dont wnt to be friends with pppl who will tempt me to go the other way :-[
