How Can I Invite a Christian Friend to Islam?

Answered by Ustadha Shazia Ahmad


I am a boy, and I have a female friend that I went to school with for a while. Ever since we graduated, we have been talking a lot, and I have come to care so much about her. Often I am very scared that she may not go to Janna because she is a Christian. I want her to become a Muslim, but I do not know how to approach the topic with her. How can I go about inviting her to Islam?


Thank you for your question.

Please see your answer linked below. In addition, I must caution you to be careful with opposite-gender interactions. One can easily fall in love and end up in a situation that is painful and difficult to get out of. May Allah guide her to Islam, to noble character, and to embody the meanings of the Quran. Make du`a for her guidance.

May Allah give you the best of this world and the next.
