While church growth is waning in many places of the world, Islamic influence is spreading and getting stronger in most parts of the world. In light of this crisis, it is the purpose of this project to guide Christians and churches a better understanding of Muslims, of their faith, and of an effective method of evangelizing them with special care and love. This thesis attempts to discuss the origin of Islam, the life of Muhammad, and how Islam was spread throughout the world as a religion. Insight on how to reach Muslims with the Gospel will be gained through the study of the practices of Islam and a comparison of its doctrines with the Biblical doctrine. Understanding historical Islamic influence and power in Ghana and the suggested practical methods of approaching Muslims in Ghana will help to win Muslims elsewhere. As a result of this project, although the fruits may not be seen in a short period of time, it is hoped that lost souls will come to Christ and liberate from the power of Islam.
