A Muslim da`i is not limited to a certain place or time, for his noble message exceeds all times and places. In making da`wah, a Muslim should never slacken or feel frustrated. In addition, a Muslim should spare no pains or leave any stone unturned in spreading the word of truth. Even on beaches, a Muslim should not stop introducing the guidance of Islam to people. However, this should be governed by certain rules and the da`i himself should evaluate the situation and see what is to be done and what is to be avoided.
Dr. Sano Koutoub Moustapha, professor of jurisprudence and its principles at the International Islamic University, Malaysia, states the following: As for da`wah, Islam doesn’t limit it to a specific place or time. However, one should have strategic plans while making da`wah, meaning, one should evaluate the situation and consequences before undertaking da`wah work in a place. Furthermore, one should know the priorities of da`wah. In this regard, it is out of doubt that beaches should not be priorities for da`wah work, especially in their current set-up and environment. However, during vacation one should try to avoid beaches, which are full of contradiction with Islamic teachings. Certainly, it would be better not to expose underage and adolescents to these beaches.”
