Attention, Local Humans: Don’t Say You Weren’t Warned

From “Da’wah To Our Fellow Human Beings Living in America,” by Hamaza Thie Bui, South Central Zone Representative, Al-Furqaan Foundation, in the August edition of Houston Islamic Source:
The eventual purpose of da’wah is to establish a model for humanity to see … always have a translation of trhe Qur’an ready. Let people see you carry it around. Let people see you read it at work … We have to look at all Americans as potential Muslims … We need to use wisdom to give them a ayah or hadith that they will accept. That entails knowing the language of the land---English---proficiently and understanding American culture … We should collectively give out the Qur’an to non-Muslims. We should make sure it gets everywhere: to business leaders, our government rulers [sic] … We should put Allah’s name in our business contracts. For entrepreneurs, when we sign contracts with non-Muslims, should put it in the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful in the document … Finally, we cannot call them kafir until they openly reject the truth … a kafir covers up the truth, although he knows in his heart there is only one God … It is our duty to tell these potential Muslims the truth; [sic] in a way they will understand it … We as Muslims need to carry on the prophetic message of bringing glad tidings to the believers and warnings to the disbelievers of Allah’s terrible punishment … We want to make sure that (inshaAllah) on the Day of Judgment that there is not a single non-Muslim in this country who can say that he or she hasn’t heard about Islam from us Muslims, and not from FOX-TV or CNN News …
