Busy week but I'd like to share this wonderful video clip with everyone...
On Maulidur Rasul, for many years including 2012, groups of Muslims have been going around with roses, chocolates and books about prophet Muhammad SAW. No, it's not to commemorate Valentine's Day but to introduce Muhammad SAW to non-Muslims and share with them his story, and why Muslims revere him so.Wish I were around to help but had to be with the children that day.There are also other pictures but need to ask the photographer's permission before putting them here.
I wrote about this project back in the year 2010, which was a great success. I was told that the gifts were specially prepared and cost about RM10 each [book, rose and choc]. Donations are most welcomed, for next year's project :)
Congratulations to IPSI [Islamic Propagation Society International], Ustaz Kamarudin Abdullah and the groups of youngsters who were brave to approach non-Muslim strangers and talk about our beloved prophet.
They did not walk in processions with banners. They did not sang nasyeed song nor recited the selawat loudly that day. Instead they walked in shopping centres and streets in small groups with gifts for English-reading non-Muslim strangers.
I can imagine how nervous they must had felt as they approached a stranger. Would he/she be happy to accept their gift? Or would that person frown when he/she sees the title of the book and start to accuse them of trying to convert people to Islam? How many of us Muslims would dare to do like those Muslim missionaries ?
