We should always be looking for new and innovative ways of giving Dawa.
We certainly generated a few ideas in this section already. See 101 ways to give dawa.
Well I just heard of two excellent ideas in Croydon Mosque this evening.
First was a collection they had made for the Mayday hospital's children section. This has to rank high amoungst great dawa ideas, contributing to the community in a manner that benefits the whole community.
The other idea really impressed me. They were asking for a collection so the could give a gift box on Eid to each of the neighbors around the mosque by way of apology for any inconvenience and annoyance that the musalees might have caused over the previous year!
I don't know what they plan to put in the box, but I hope its as well thought out as the idea itself.
Please suggest this to your local masjid. There is nothing like the giving of gifts to soften hearts and create affection between people.
