The iERA team in Brazil on day 20 of the football World Cup, were giving dawah on Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar) in Rio de Janeiro.
They were there with a local dawah organisation, FAMBRAS – Federação das Associações Muçulmanas do Brasil – The Federation of Muslim Associations in Brazil.
People were very interested in them fasting in the Rio heat and wanted to know more about Islam. Brazil is a very fertile place to share the simple and rational message of Islam as the majority of Brazilians we’ve met are disillusioned with Catholicism and have already left it to worship God alone. In one of the local Mosques in Rio where we broke our first fast of Ramadan, we were overwhelmed with the number of reverts or converts to Islam that there were and with the permission of Allah whilst we were there, a local woman arrived at the mosque wanting to become Muslim!
