Last Saturday the Islamic Circle of North America’s New Jersey Unit manned a “WHY ISLAM Dawah Booth” at the Menlo Park Mall in Edison, New Jersey. (Thanks to Teri for the link.)
Dawah is the peaceful propagation of Islam. In traditional Islamic theology, first a people is called to Islam through dawah. Then, if they refuse, jihad is waged against them.
Now, I don’t frequent malls very often. Are Christian groups often proselytizing in malls? I don’t remember hearing that they’re very hospitable to this sort of thing in general. But I suppose when it comes to Islam, to refuse to allow them to proselytize in the mall wouldn’t be multiculural.
In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
877-WHY-ISLAM Dawah Booth is once again being hosted at the Menlo Park Mall, Edison NJ.
We are looking for volunteers to help us out at this Dawah Booth.
The booth will be held on Saturday – July 31st, 2004, from 10:00am till 8:00pm.
Volunteers will man the booth in 2 hour shifts, and answer any questions interested parties may have on Islam, as well as hand out 877-Why-Islam Dawah Literature.
