A story about a brother they met when they were doing dawah @ Brazil World Cup.

When you stand up and reach towards higher goals, those around you, want you to sit back down, to lower your standards and to be average just like them. Greatness makes them uncomfortable.
But believers are not meant to be average, they are meant to stand out.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers.”
Do not fear being a “stranger” in wanting to follow the footsteps of our pious predecessors. They were never average! They were people of action, people of determination, people of lifelong commitment.

How well do you know your neighbor? One of the most essential qualities of a Muslim is that they treat their neighbors well. Unfortunately, what that usually means in this day and age is simply waving to them as you pull out of the driveway. But its so much more than that. Establish a relationship with your neighbor slowly, take sweets over to them sometimes (especially on Eids), offer to help them with yard work, and routinely ask them if they need anything.
All that will be uncomfortable initially, but you never know what it may lead to. And know that this is not just for the sake of Dawah, but indeed it is a part of your faith.
