As'Salamu Alaikum,

Masha-Allah sister, you write so well and i don't understand why you thought to be a silent member at first. Well, do read a thread at this same section - Low esteem

Hope, you continue to be active over boards.

assalamu alakum. the only way fellow believer that you can help and be successful is to live a life untainted by sin. if you want to encourage a fellow believer on the importance of observing prayer ensure that you lead by praying 5 times. l believe doing good all the time in all circumstances is the one of the best motivation that can draw even new souls to our faith. today the world is in turmoil many have visited places of sancitity only to reap untold misery. it is a fact universally acknowledged that nowadays religion is fast becoming an epitome of the devil. l m thus of the opinion that in order for each and everyone of us to help successfully in spreading our faith means revisiting our moral and ethical values and refurbish our spiritual position

The reason for such a delayed response: I made a self-analysis and realised that I have not been doing much. Hence did not have much to say!

On my part, most of my 'dawah' if one can call it that, is restricted online - such as this forum.

In real life, I don't approach people myself, since many people consider that an invasion of privacy - the Hijab does most of the dawah. A lot of nonmuslims colleagues and friends ask me questions (not surprisingly, all related to hijab, polygyny, dating, arranged marriages )So I just try to be accessible/friendly. One friend, who is a freethinker, used to show a lot of interest and ask a lot of questions, so after sometime, I invited her to come along with me to Yusuf Estes' lecture - for some reason she backed out later. So I have resumed my passive approach, and only respond when ppl show interest.

I'm afraid I 'plan' a lot and just keep 'planning' - I dont always manage to pull through and implement. For example, back in highschool I was so impressed by Dr.Zakir Naik - I just wanted to be part of IRF and so joined thier free online Dawah course, but then I couldnt keep up and gave up! I wanted to get admission in an Islamic university (IIU Malaysia) that offers a degree with one Deen major & one Duniya major - but then I ended up doing something different, the way things worked out. Insha'allah I want to pursue some sort of formal Islamic course/degree after I graduate. Its been a plan since highchool. Apart from that, I have a lot of big ideas and plans - just not the metal to implement them. May Allah give me the strength and opportunity to do so, for His sake.
