Presenting Islam in the West: Daud R Matthews & Others

Presenting Islam in the West (Introduction) 
By Daud R Matthews 
UK Islamic Academy, Da'wah Resource Centre (2004 CE, 1425 AH)
Pages: 104 Binding: Paperback

This first volume of 'Presenting Islam in the West' sets out to present the methodology of the Call to Allah (ad-da'wah ilallah) based on the Qur'an and Sunnah. The da'i (caller) only calls to what he knows following: 
'Invite all to the way of your Lord (Islam) with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and reason with them in the best possible way (to convince them of the Truth).' [Surah Nahl 16:125] and
'Say, (O Muhammad): this is my way, I call to Allah with certain knowledge, I and those who follow me. And Exalted is Allah; and I am not of those who associate others with Him.' [Surah Yusu 12:108]

The caller gives information, Allah decides who becomes Muslim. Da'wah is invitational, and not confrontational.
Articles are included from many referenced sources. The dai's relationship to his listener (s) should be like that of a doctor and patient. Thus, a seed once planted may become a tree of Eman with careful nurturing over time, insha'Allah.

When Mu`adh (may Allah be pleased with him) was sent to the Yemen, he was told: 'Tell them about the One God, if they believe then tell them about prayer, if they believe tell them about fasting …'So, calling to the One God is the highest priority, which is the first part of the Shahadah.

Consider Surah 103; al-`Asr, we find it begins: '{By time.}* 
Is time important in our lives? How many times have we heard the sentence: there’s not enough time? How many times have we heard people talking about time management? So, what does this Surah tell us? By the passing of time, certainly Man is a loser except for those who do four things: those who believe, do good deeds, invite others to truth and to steadfastly persevere
