Course Overview

There are many opportunities for Muslims in the West to call to the religion; from colleagues in the workplace, associates in the classroom, neighbours, friends, community members, family members, and even online communities. The introduction of instant messaging and global online networks means that there is an almost limitless potential in spreading the message of Islam.
