Islam in South America
Tuesday, April 01, 2008
As-salaamu'alaykum wa Rahmatu Llahi wa Barakatuhu

Very few of us will surprised to learn that as Muslims we have a responsibility to convey the message of Islam to non-Muslims and invite them to Allah. Are we really fulfilling that duty?

With this great responsibility comes a great reward, insha'Allah.

"Whoever guides someone towards good, will receive the reward of the one who acts upon it." [Muslim]

This means, if a person is converted through the dawah you give him/her, you get rewards for all the prayers he/she does or all the fasts that he/she does, etc.

  • Preferably ANY books in Spanish

    JazakAllahu Khairon for your efforts.

    I was also told that one can contact Muslim embassies/councils such as of Saudia and they might be able to provide free books, qurans and Islamic info.
