A friend once told us this, and what he said changed our perspective on Da’wah bil hal forever:
“Da’wah bil hal is actually just another word of being a true Muslim.”
A genuine Da’wah bil hal is not “I will do this good thing in front of people so people would do it as well, and voila! A better world for all.”
A genuine Da’wah bil hal is becoming a true Muslim for the sake of Allah. It’s about maintaining an intimate and strong relationship with Allah in your inner privacy and with people in everyday worldly matters.
Eventually, people will notice. They will start feeling the true grace of Islam. And that is how Da’wah bil hal comes into practice.
Da’wah bil hal is not about you doing good so that people will follow.
It is about you becoming good, then people will follow.
