Successful Chicago Bus Dawah Campaign

Note: Props to Usman for pointing this out.

Here is a campaign that has already taken off. You might have heard of the NYC subway campaign happening and there was a huge furor over that. I guess they needed more money since it is New York, but in Chicago going on.

And you know what? People are converting already.

The sign caught Moses Robinson’s eye. A 38-year-old Gary resident who works for a software company, he saw one of the buses on Canal Street when he left his office on a break. “Everything clicked into place,” he said. After calling the number on the side of the bus and meeting with Gain Peace, he converted to Islam the next day.

“We’ve had eight conversions, close to 400 calls and we’ve had close to 75,000 hits on our Web site in one week,” said Sabeel Ahmed, the director for Gain Peace.

So just how much does it cost to do something like this?
Not a heckuva lot!

Sponsor a whole bus X 4 week = $ 600
Sponsor a bus X 1 week = $ 175
Sponsor a bus X 2 days = $50
Sponsor a bus X 1 day = $25

WOW!! Now, you can most definitely help them out.

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdika ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk, Ameen.


  1. what ever muslim it was who donated 25 bucks for that specific bus on that specific day, that this person became muslim, is extremely lucky. Imagine the sadaqah jariah of making one person a muslim, their family, their children, and the people around them will be influenced by islam, inshallah.

    These projects always put a smile on my face. Alhamdulillah! đŸ˜›

  2. Masya Allah…. brilliant idea…
    but is the cost really low? wow!

  3. mashallah that’s good news. may allah help this camphaingn grow.

  4. hey bro. i want to email forward this post among my contacts to spread the world but i couldn’t find a email this facility like in other blogs on this page no đŸ˜¦

  5. Uhhh…yeah. I’m not that hightech…just copy-paste it?

    I’ll try and jazz this place up in sha Allah.

  6. Alhamdulillah 23 000 has already been raised just through the “Chip In” application on their website. The power of internet fund raising is amazing!

    Inshallah something like this in such a diverse city like Toronto would be very beneficial.

  7. Subhana’Allah, it’s not a bad rate per day at all for such great advertising!

  8. Sponsor a whole bus X 4 week = $ 600
    Sponsor a bus X 1 week = $ 175
    Sponsor a bus X 2 days = $50
    Sponsor a bus X 1 day = $25

    You should have added another line after that:

    Blow up a bus = priceless.

    Nah, I’m just kidding. :p

    Haha, good work guys. This is an amazing thing you have got going, masha-Allah.
