Abstract

Islam has been publicized as the world’s fastest-growing religion. According to present trends, the Pew Research Center predicts that by the year 2050, there will be almost as many Muslims as Christians worldwide. Islam is the second-largest religion in Kenya after Christianity. Da’wah is explained as calling or inviting people to the religion of Islam. This article helps Christians to understand da’wah and examine how da’wah has contributed to the growth of Islam in Kenya. It will discuss the da’wah methods and the preparation for Muslims to get involved in dawah. The paper will evaluate the success of this dawah by how Islam has grown in Kenya. It suggests responses that Kenyan Christians can make. The methodology used for this study was qualitative research; the rationale for using a qualitative approach was to obtain a detailed description of the da’wah strategies that Muslims use for Islam’s growth.
