Dawah in Family


Salamu Alaikum wa ala Shaykh Hisham Effendi
Astaghfirullah ya seyyidi!! Forgive me and ask forgivness for me from Allah!
I’ve a problem..my mother is not muslima, she maybe believe in god but don’t want religion… I’m trying to talk her about Islam and Tariqa but she always speaks about paramhansa yogananda…as she doesn’t want to know our beloved Muhammad and his Sunnah or follow it…soon I will leave my home to go to Sham inshallah…please, tell me what can I do for her or talk to her about saints like yogananda… so she can embrace Islam and leave other things…
Astaghfirullah, As Salamu Alaikum


wa `alaykum salam,

Shaykh Hisham will pray for your mother’s heart to open, insha-Allah.

Calling someone to Islam, especially in the West, with the supermarket of religions always available is not a simple thing. It requires great understanding, compassion and a soft touch.  Most important it requires extreme humility. This in a nutshell, is what differentiates Mawlana Shaykh’s way of da`wah from anyone else.

Sufi Meditation is often the best opening for those who are interested in Eastern religions, in particulary Hinduism and Buddhism. Study this and it may be a useful tool for you as well as open your heart to some of the subtleties of this noble Path.

W ‘Allahu `alam,

Taher Siddiqui
