Abstract

Da’wah is a duty for all Muslims. The Glorious Qur’an as the Muslim’s most authentic Book (Kitab) provides the basic principles of Da’wah methodologies to be applied by the Muslims Da’i (preacher) in the Da’wah field. This paper, therefore, attempts to provide the much-lacking information on the problems and prospect of Da’wah in Nassarawa Eggon. It looks into the challenges and problems faced by the Da’wah movement and also examines the reasons for the slow progress of Islamic Da’wah in the area. This is crucial because necessary actions could then be taken or solution is sought to ensure the smooth progress of Da’wah activities in Nassarawa Eggon. It examines the prospect of Islamic Da’wah and the efforts of the Muslim community towards the future and progress of Islamic Da’wah in Nassarawa Eggon in years to come.
