JazakAllah khair for sharing this with us.
Im always impressed by the passion and initiatives taken by our muslim brothers and sisters in the UK!
Its honestly really humbling and gives us something to reflect on in the rest of the world - how much are we really doing in dawah?
Just some background to the 2012 Olympic Dawah Drive:
Its a project by iERA:
You can find them here - http://www.iera.org.uk/about_us1.html
and get involved yourself, insha Alllah : )
They are involved in great work in dawah, alhamdulillah - from dynamic speakers, various events (as above) to raising awareness about Islam and support for new muslims.
e.g. Hamza Andreas Tzortzis offers a great 'DAWAH POWER' Course - with practical ways of engaging non-muslims about Islam.
Just wanted to share one of his very moving videos: "Dont Underestimate the Blessing":
(You may shed a few tears at this one.....)
Well done to my brothers and sisters in UK!
May Allah (subhanawataála) bless all with Jannatul Firdaus.
And may He make the hearts of all those who took their shahadas, firm on this beautiful deen.
Wish we had had a similiar initiative during our 2010 Soccer World Cup (in South Africa).......
Insha Allah, a motivation for us all!
