Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

Here is the latest updates from 2 dawah stalls around Perth.

Old Perth Road Market - 28 May

Update from Br. Akram, "This Sunday, was a bit quieter than usual with the very cold weather. We still had people reading the posters and taking the pop quiz on their own. Alhamdulillah 5 copies of the Quran translation were taken. We did have two people raise the Manchester killings and one of them was a bit hostile saying we should be ashamed of ourselves, he is regularly at the markets but obviously very closed and didn't want to listen at all, the other person was a lady and just wanted a confirmation that it wasn't Islam teaching this. Alhamdulillah other than that there was the usually good atmosphere at the markets. Nermina did have a couple of conversations which she will share shortly".

Update from Sis. Nermina, "A couple approached me and they were very friendly Mashaa'Allah. The guy was straight to the point, he had one question. Were all the Qurans the same or did they have different versions. I wasn't familiar with this question as it was the first time I was asked but it so I told him there is only one Arabic version of the Quran and this is what gets translated into different languages. I mentioned that there is different english translations by different people but the one we have is from Sahih international publishing. He kept asking in between, so there is only one. Alhamdulillah he listened to the end. Then I explained to him that this book is the word of God and God Himself promised it will not change until the end of time. I briefly explained that it is translated from Arabic to English as best as they can but Arabic itself is a difficult language one sound can change the meaning of the word and there is also the circumstances in which certain verses were revealed. He asked me so it was not the words of Muhammad sallaAllahu alayhi wa salaam. I said No he was unable to write. He then specifically asked me if Muhammad wrote the Quran and I said no. Then he mentioned something interesting, he said his sister is a Muslim and quote "she told him there were different versions of the Quran" I said no again and explained to him that what I said previously is all there is. He asked how he could get the commentary on the Quran when it was revealed each verse and in what circumstances. I told him that at the back of the Quran there is an email. He can research it himself but he may or may not get the correct information its important to get information from a valid source

I quickly explained how even with hadiths which explain the Quran they have to be authentic and even if one person in the chain of narration was not trustworthy the hadith would not be classed as valid. I told him if he has questions he can email Islam Australia and ask about a certain verse in the Quran or any other questions he has. He asked more questions in between that's how we got to the above answer, he was genuinely or seemed genuinely interested. He mentioned before he left that his family all believed in different things, his Mum is a catholic, his sister Muslim. I assume his Mum must have converted too since he mentioned that. He said thank you asked if he could take some books, took the 50 questions and answer and the science book along with the Quran .

Murray Street Mall - 27 May

Morning Session, Update by Br. Issa

"Bismillah
Murray Street was busy as usual on a Saturday, we had a slow start however things quickly became interesting! I was busy talking to a Christian brother on the basic attributes of the creator, the most high, and human beings, these qualities of human and the creator, therefore a man cannot be the creator and the creator cannot be man. An atheist gentleman was speaking with Brother Faisal, when Brother Faisal said to him that if there is no creator for the heavens and earth, why don’t you create a mosquito. The man replied that scientists can but he fled before any evidence was provided.

A non-Muslim sister came to our stall, and her exact words were I’m looking for the truth. SubhanAllah! We spoke about misconceptions about Islam, and Br. Faisal mentioned the Ayah regarding justice where Muslims are commanded by Allah, The Almighty to uphold justice even if it is against themselves and the sister even shed a tear, Masha Allah.

An Indian gentleman who seemed very sincere (Martin) took many material, said he believed that God is one and that he believed Muhammad (SAW) was his messenger, but wasn’t ready to take the shahadah, May Allah guide him, Ameen.

Many messages of support, may Allah guide those good hearted people, who just stopped by to thank us for what we were doing and to show solidarity with the Muslims, Ameen. There were a couple of people who came with the usual hot topics like apostasy and it’s clear they have visited anti-Islamic websites, but overall many nice people and generally a good day. May Allah reward all the brothers and Sisters which are involved in calling to Allah, Wassalamu Alaikum Warahmatullah.


Afternoon Session, Update by Br. Shameem

Praise be to Allah, we seek His help and His forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evil of our own souls and from our bad deeds. Whomsoever Allah guides will never be led astray, and whomsoever Allah leaves astray, no one can guide. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

Assalaamualaikum wr wb!

Alhamdulillah! Br. Altaaf, Br. Ali and Br. Shameem continue the da'wah session from 1.00 p.m till 5.00 p.m. We are in the blessed month of Ramadaan which is the month of the Qur'an and alhamdulillah we grabbed this opportunity to explain to people about the beauty and miracles of the Qur'an and previous scriptures revealed to different prophets as said in the Qur'an;

Say, ‘We believe in Allâh and in that which has been revealed to us and in that which was revealed to Abraham, and Ismâîl and Isaac and Jacob and his children and in that which was given to Moses and Jesus and to all other Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between anyone of them (in believing them) and to Him alone do we submit’ (3:84).

And We have not revealed to you the Book, [O Muhammad (pbuh)], except for you to make clear to them that wherein they have differed and as guidance and mercy for a people who believe.
Al Qur’an 16:64

ALHAMDULILLAH for this Great Day in Perth City, Australia. We conveyed the message of Islam with higher level of knowledge that Allah is giving us and getting even better and better responses. We responded in the best way, the best approach in Wisdom and kindness, just like how Qur'an tells us to do so! Awareness about Islam is prevailing effectively and quickly through our various platform such as Da'wah stalls, Facebook and our website. Peoples are really showing interests and sincere understanding about Islam.

However, a lot of brothers and sisters in the Jeovahs Witness and other faith came at our da'wah stall to argue on who is God and to explain how Jesus pbuh spread love in their lives. Some people came just to criticize Islam and blame us Muslims for all those attacks, bombings and injustice that are happening around the world. We made our efforts to show them the reality and how Islam is against such immoral acts. But as Allah says in the Qur'an:

And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam, and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allah puts the wrath on those who believe not.
Surah Al-Anaam, Verse 125

Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing and there is a covering over their eyes, and there is a great punishment for them.
Surah Al-Baqara, Verse 7

Br Altaf had an interesting and long conversation with a Catholic lady who was trying to convince him that Jesus pbuh is God and that the bible is the true guidance. Br. Altaf explained to her that there were many prophets who submitted all to only one God that is Allah. He also explained to the lady that the Qur'an is the last revelation that was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad pbuh for our nation.

Br. Ali had a nice conversation with a very open guy who believe that media is so corrupted and is always displaying only negative things that are happening around the world. The man was so keen to learn about Islam as a religion of peace. They sat down inside the da'wah tent and talked comfortably for more than 1 hour. Alhamdulillah Br. Ali wrote down his email address and they even shared their contact numbers.

May Allah guides them all to the right path and to the only True religion, that is Islam. Ameen

O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam (as Muslims) with complete submission to Allah.)’ [Aal ‘Imraan 3:103].

Jazakumullahu Khairan!

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

Here is the latest updates from 2 dawah stalls around Perth.

Firstly - Old Perth Road Markets - 30th April

This Sunday, we had the usual number of people reading the posters and taking the pop quiz on their own, almost half came to the table and took material. Some wanting to go straight for the quran asking how much it was and surprised we were giving them away. We also found a few people come to the table not knowing it's about Islam and slowly walk away. Alhamdulillah there is always a good atmosphere at the markets and our presence is seen to be welcome, getting good feedback from other stall holders too.

The Market was close, I was talking to one of the stall holders and when I came back, Akram jokingly said my wife would be more experienced and passionate about this topic. I laughed and introduced myself. The young lady was a student from the US. Looking forward to going back as she had just received a phone call that she was accepted to work with refugees coming into America. Having a passion for women's rights and education. She asked me what do I think of the topic Muslim women being oppressed. We had a long chat and basically covered that Islam itself does not oppress women but having said that the reason you have women themselves and activists make those claims is because a lot of the time there are a few factors that contribute to this way of thought, one is someone's culture weather it is Arab, African, Indian or European. The reason culture is still so powerful is that people follow traditions of their ancestors that have long been abolished by Islam, like killing of female babies. I told her about a few rights of women in Islam. She was very happy, told me she loved the way I distinguished the difference between Islam and culture. She talked about her dreams which were to work one day for the Malala Fund. She asked to take a photo of the stall before she left. She did talk about a few topics she discussed in class, one was ban the burqa in France which she was against. This lady seemed passionate for justice, may Allah guide her. Ameen. In shaa Allah she can be a change for Muslim refugees in America. We were there until almost 2pm.

We still packed up before our neighboring stalls. Alhamdulillah practice makes perfect.

May Day Stall - May 7th

Alhamdullillah, all preparations and set up for the dawah stall goes smoothly. It was a beautiful sunny day and when the festival kicks off at 10am, people from all walks of life starts to pour into the area even tourists. Visitors to our Dawah stall were consistent throughout the day and we manage to have a positive conversation with most of them. We were promoting the book written by Dr Gary Miller and alhamdulillah they were gone by the end of the day. We do have our Muslim visitors to the stall too.

The crowd starts to slow down during the march but as soon the march was over people starts to come back and the Dawah Stall starts to receive our fair share of visitors.

Some of the visitors came over for a chat but did not take any books since they've already taken it last year. They thank us for doing this Dawah stalls and appreciate our participation.

The Henna stall was busy too but manageable. Our Henna sister were seen trying to do some dawah to her customers too by giving away some pamphlets at her table. Jazakallah Khair sister.

It was a successful enjoyable day for everyone by the end of the day. I think we manage to give away more than 20 Quran English translation books (we didn't manage to keep track properly) and lots of other accompanying islamic books too.

May Allah open the heart and guides our dawah stall visitors to the straight path and May Allah rewards generously to everyone who were involves for the successful Dawah day that we had. Insya Allah.

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

The Islam Australia Team was once again busy over the weekend with Dawah Stalls. Below brief updates from the volunteers on the day.

ALTONE COMES ALIVE
Br. Waseem & Br. Esa
Henna Artist: Sr. Sara

"OK, well firstly we had an older gentleman who read the stand on humanity and Islam, he then said 'too bad they don't live by it... I mean some of them', he then continued pass the stall and I don't disagree with him about that. There was a brother Rob, who was inspired by Sonny bill Williams the rugby player and how he changed his life, and is intrigued by Islam. As well there was Nigel who considers himself spiritual and is interested in Islam. There were many Muslim's as well who came to give support and a brother who said we should be careful!

Rebecca a librarian came to ask for a Quran and many people were surprised when we advised they were free. There was a constant stream of young girls and some ladies for sister Sara's henna and a few times we had to remove the sign so she could have a break. A lot of material was taken and all in all I thought it was a good day and we met lots of very nice people"
Update By Br. Esa

KALAMUNDA SHOW
Br. Musa, Br. Shameem, Br. Glen & Br. Muhammad
Henna Artist: Sr. Sumaiya

MORNING SESSION, Update by Br. Shameem
(From 9.30 a.m to 4.30 p.m)

"Assalaamualaikum wr wb!

Alhamdulillah! Br. Musa and I started the morning session at 9.30 a.m and spread the message of Islam, bringing forward the concept of Tawheed (Oneness of God) and describing the man who strived to make people worship only one God, our Beloved Prophet Muhammad PBUH! ALHAMDULILLAH. Great da'wah day in Kalamunda Show with good responses!

Two Brothers only, given da'wah to more than 25 people in 7 hours.
More than 15 copies of Al Qur'an distributed to the Humanity and many other books & flyers!

Br. Musa had an interesting debate at the Da'wah stall with a Malaysian brother who long ago entered into the fold of Christianity and was arguing about trinity, that is the doctrine that the Father, the Son, and the holy spirit together form one God. Alhamdulillah Br. Musa responded intelligently and referred to the Bible a lot. We gave the brother a Quran, a book on 'Clear your doubts about islam, and some flyers related to his questions.

ALHAMDULILLAH WA SHUKRILLAH!

We had also free Henna for girls next to our da'wah stall.
Alhamdulillah, Sister Sumaiya was busy all day long and got a lot of girls approaching our stall. While waiting for their turn, they were looking at our messages displayed and a lot took some books and flyers.

Alhamdulillah. Good strategy to attract people!

EVENING SESSION, Update by Br. Muhammad
(4pm to 10pm)

Alhamdulillah, Br. Mohamed Glen and I had the opportunity once again to do a session together at this event. Not sure why, but few stalls packed up early, but we stayed put until the end walhamdulillah. There were over half a dozen interested visitors (including a Mormon man with whom we had a discussion about the status of Jesus in Islam and Christianity and an intelligent Native lady who always thought that Allah is a different God compared to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth). May Allah guide them to the Truth.

There were atleast 3 Muslim businesses (Waffles, Ice Cream & Moroccan Kebabs) operating at the event masha’Allah"

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

The busy weekends for Islam Australia is continuing from March into April. Updates from the last 2 stalls around Perth.

Ballajura, Perth - Harmony Day. Sunday 26th March

Debrief from Br. Ajmal

"The day began a bit adventurously as when we stopped to pick the Dawah gear and tried to restart the car it just wouldn't start, luckily the resident brother had a jump start lead and soon we were on our way Alhamdulillah...reached there in plenty of time & set up ready to go on this very windy Sunday.

Annual Harmony Day Ballajura event went well with a lot of multi cultural presence. A fair few Muslim families also dropped in to our stand for a visit. It was not a very busy day however we had a couple of good interactions. Henna was extremely popular and we utilised the waiting patrons' time by getting them to play the Islamic Quiz and win extra Mentos! We barely managed to get Sr Somayah a Pizza break after 3 continuous hours of artwork. Alhamdulillah we gave a good positive image of Islam, may Allah SWT accept the efforts from our team and improve us with our shortcomings & may He guide those who seek guidance and have mercy on us all"

Following weekend, 1st April, Dawah Stall was @ Autumn River Festival

Debrief from Sis. Calisha

Assalaamualaykum

Alhamdulillah the festival was a lovely event as it is every year. Very friendly families with lots of free activities, mashallah.

There was a steady flow of people taking items or stopping for a brief chat, however it wasn't very busy.

The Mayor of Bayswater took some books and said some positive things to us about the stall and that it was much needed. He also said if our community ever needs anything to just get in contact with him and he will do all he can to help. So that was a nice gesture from him, mashallah.

The henna was very popular once again with 2 very talented and friendly sisters offering their services for the duration of the event.

We only had one negative man who clearly had drawn his own hateful conclusions about Islam, Muslims and the Prophet SAW. It is always a bit unsettling to face and hear someone say such hurtful things about our deen but we must remain steadfast and persevere in Dawah. No doubt this was the path of the believers and Prophets before us as they endured the attacks of those who hate or misunderstand our beliefs and way of life.

May Allah guide them and us to truth and goodness ameen.

We have coming up this weekend, 8th April, Dawah Stalls @ Altone Comes Alive and Kalamunda Show

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

This month and February, the team setup their Dawah stall at the Twilight Markets on Old Perth Road. Below is what they have to share.

Saturday 25th February 2017

Participants: Faisal Nabi & Sahril Gani

It was a warm Sunny day when we began our Dawah table for the day. It started slow but the crowd started to come in when the Sun was going down and the temperature dropped a bit. We managed to give out a handful of the English translation of Quran to our stall visitors. Other books about the Basic of Islam, Prophet Muhammad’s PBUH biography and Women's rights in Islam were the popular ones.

A Jewish lady who wasn’t able to attend the interfaith meeting at Masjid Ibrahim the next day was glad that she managed to get hold of some Islamic Books and have a conversation with us.

Our Henna table got busier as the crowd grew. The free Henna helped in breaking barriers and bringing joy to some table visitors.

It was a lovely day with beautiful crowd and it ended well with no problems, walhamdulillah.



Saturday 25th March 2017

Participants: Br. Akram Mohamed with his wife Sr. Nermina

As usual the market organisers were happy to see us saying their hello's, while setting up a lady approached us saying thank you for the materials she took last time and that she had sent them to Uganda. Overall we had several people read through the A-frame posters and others taking one or two items.

We had one man approach us. He mentioned he wasn't religious and believes everyone should strive to be good human being; We basically started with that we are all human regardless what label we carry but what should we all ask ourselves first is how did we get here and what is the purpose of our lives. We explained the concept of God in Islam and that God communicated to us through other Human beings which he selected to be his messengers. He seemed fascinated and thanked us for the explanation.

Another senior man approached us saying hello and asked if the material was really for free. He wanted one of everything when he realised it was free.

A Chinese man came with his daughter to the table he pointed at the books and asked if they were about Islam, he seemed very keen in finding out what Islam is. After browsing through he landed on and took a copy of the Qur'an.

We also had a man curiously looking at the quiz, we asked if he was interested in taking the quiz and said yes. We went through all the questions and was surprised we believed in Prophets other than Muhammad.

Two ladies stopped interested in the quiz. They were hesitating mentioning that they will probably fail. I said okay I'll make it easy for you there is Only one false. As we started they said true to the first one but the next three which were all true confused them. They were sure they were false especially the one about Muslims believing in all the Prophets. They were comparing almost between themselves how it's similar to Christianity although they had no particular belief and said to me that they believed in one force but were not sure how that force comes about. I explained about one God in Islam and they agreed that that was certainly different and liked the idea. As one Lady walked away searching for something at the next stall the last that stayed explained she was into charms. I asked her if she could guess which the false was and she was clueless. I told her that we do believe in angels, she was really taken aback and wanted to take some books and before she left she mentioned that she feels how we are rejected as a lot of her friends reject her for being different and she thanked me for my time.

Few highlights:
• Morning team was running out of copies of Quran translation, so more copies had to be sent via the afternoon team.
• Comment from someone (not Muslim ) : "she is insane" ( Pauline Hanson)
• Another one (non Muslim again) : " do you know what is the truth about Islam -(pause)- what the media doesn't tell you"
• Latest from afternoon team: Subhanallah tough crowd... Sometimes we are both talking with others waiting in line so haven’t gotten many photos.

Team members still on the ground – may Allah help, bless and protect them.

Full update to follow in a week or so inshaAllah.

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullah,

With lots of Dawah Stall opportunities around Perth in recent weeks, the volunteers are busy setting up Dawah stalls and speaking to some eager and some not so eager crowd. We'll be sure to share some of their experiences throughout.

Debrief Murray Street Dawah Table
Mar 25, 2017

Morning session - Brs Faisal, Essa, and Ali

Bismillah,

No sooner had we set up the stall that a lady dropped in. As she picked up literature, she told us how angry she was at Pauline Hanson for her recent statement, said she knows Muslims. Turns out she is not the only one during our session 1 and many other non Muslim visitors used pretty strong words, in one case unprintable, to condemn the statement. One said she is "insane".

There was a steady stream of visitors throughout the session, many animated discussions and heartening statements of support. One visitor aggressively approached Br Ali and in dramatic fashion said "do you know the truth about Islam ?- (it is) what the media does not tell you". We couldn't agree more. Most questions / discussions were around the verses in the Quran on disbelievers , no. of wives allowed , ruling on murtads, Shia -Sunni , status & mission of Jesus (pbuh), etc. One tattooed visitor from New Zealand, we thought, even came close to taking the shahada !

There were many Muslim visitors too, some expectedly angry at Pauline, contending a united muslim response under the law was required. One forced us to accept some refreshments, may Allah accept from him this kind act.

English translation of the Quran was the most popular pick. A parallel event nearby helped bring in bigger crowds than usual and we had a very satisfying Dawah day. Alhamdulillah . Br Esa on his first dawah table did a pretty good job too. May Allah accept from all involved and guide to the truth all those who visited us. Aamin. Wassalam

Afternoon session - Br Muhammed Candemir and his wife Sis. Calisha Bennet

Bismillah,
Saturday's Dawah table in the centre of Perth City was of the most intense ones I've experienced. We arrived what seemed to be peak hour in the city, with the extra crowds likely attending a Japanese festival taking place a few hundred metres away in Forrest Chase.

Many people stopped to take books and Qurans and there seemed to be a lot more interest than usual. At times there was a line of people waiting to take books or ask questions with people also taking books at the back table of the stall. There were people who were positive and supportive and just wanted to quickly express that with words or a thumbs up and nod as they walked past. Others were genuinely interested in knowing more about Islam and were appreciative of being able to have a Quran and other books. Some wanted to talk and ask questions. We had some young missionary Christians ask questions and show a genuine interest to know more in a respectful way.

We also had quite a few Islamophobic people stop in to say derogatory remarks, to express their anger and disgust towards Muslims and Islam. Some even wanted to discourage others at the stall from staying and speaking with us. This reminded me of how Abu Lahab used to speak over and say bad things about Rasulullah SAW Subhanallah.

We packed up the stall a little late as the last few rounds of people were continuous. It was nice to see many young adults and women so interested to get to know more. We got the numbers of 2 non Muslim ladies, one wanted a hijab of her own to wear and know more about and another was dating a Muslim guy and wanted to know more about his faith for her own insight as she had no religious belief. We will be inviting them both to Perth Convert Sisters next Saturday inshallah.

May Allah accept from all of us and protect our daees from harm and abuse and bring more and more genuine seekers to our stalls ameen!
