|Abstract: ||This study was conducted to enhance the effectiveness of da’wah in the Wa Municipality. It was intended to stimulate the learning of the values and virtues of da’wah in protecting the Wa community from the moral crisis of globalization.The study was in five chapters which dealt with the techniques involved in enhancing da’wah. Thus, da’wah methodology outlined in Qur’an 16:125 was analysed as the paradigm for effective da’wah work. The study further examined the origin and development of da’wah in the Wa Municipality. To achieve the set goals of the study, the researcher adopted a multi-faceted approach to data collection. The researcher obtained information through interviews with religious preachers, and the audience of da’wah programmes on someFM stations as well as the Friday sermon in mosques and seasonal or monthly da’wah programmes in the Wa Municipality.
The findings of the study revealed that the Muslim community in Wa is aware of the strengths and weaknesses of da’wah programmes in the various media and have pledged to take practical steps to re-align da’wah along side Qur’an 16:125. It came to light from data gathered that da’wah in general has been developing at a very slow rate. The slow development was noted to be the result of factors such as lack of funding, lack of coordination in planning and executing da’wah, the use of poor monitoring and evaluation techniques, and the use of inappropriate da’wah methodologies that are in direct conflict with the Qur’an and Sunnah.
The study revealed that for da’wah programmes to have greater positive impact in the Muslim community in the Wa Municipality, frantic efforts should be made to plan, source for funding, monitor and evaluate the content of da’wah programmes in line with Qur’an 16:125.|
