My Suspicious Parents Don’t Listen to My Dawah; Any Advice?

03 August, 2022
Q Hi. I want very much to call my parents to Islam, but I feel as though any dawah coming from me will be brushed off. They aren’t particularly interested in what I have to say but I fear Hellfire for them and I don’t want me doing dawah to be what turns them away from Allah (swt). Prior to my reversion I was not a very good daughter and I understand why they don’t take me seriously but I really am so scared for them. Thank you.


What can you do if your parents do not want to listen to you about Islam?

Actions speak louder than words: give dawah to your parents through your good deeds.

Share your joy and happiness as a convert with a kind and helping attitude.
