I would like to reserve my comment, however, news on people converted to Islam through cell phone service and mosque visit program by Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding in Dubai which has attracted a lot of non-Muslims to participate.
JAIS or JAKIM or other state Islamic agencies in malaysia may have similar programs.

Riyadh - Around 5,480 people converted to Islam in Saudi Arabia through the 'Bring me to Islam' cell phone hotline service, media reports said on Thursday.
The service, provided in 12 languages, was launched to raise awareness among foreign communities in the kingdom, the Saudi daily Okaz reported.
Any person can suggest names of non-Muslims he thinks they might convert to Islam through text messages to the hotline, along with their numbers and the language they speak.
Later, preachers would call these non-Muslims and try to introduce them to Islam, without revealing the number of the person who suggested their names.
Preachers would call again if the person showed a desire to continue receiving these phone calls, Okaz said, adding that around 800,000 phone calls were made, costing 120,000 Saudi Riyals (32,000 dollars).
Venue : Jumeirah Mosque

Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding designed this programme to increase awareness and understanding between various nationalities living and visiting the Emirates.
The mosque tour takes one hour and a quarter, and visitors are invited to discover more about the life and religion of the Emirates by asking as many questions as possible.
It is in fact a beautiful experience, informative yet spiritual. This is the only mosque in the U.A.E., which is open to non-Muslims, although a dedicated guide of the SMCCU must accompany visitors. Appropriate dress code is required.
