If our women take Dawah as an obligation then this world will be better place to live in
If you are inclined towards Dawah, then there should be abundant Dawah’ centres in your locality. In this age there is need of Dawah because non-Muslims want to know more and more about Islam so it a duty of every Daee to work for the establishment of a Dawah centre in his locality.
Dawah is Fard-Kifiya. It is compulsory upon the community. If community is able to do Dawah then there is good reward for every member of the community. If no one is able to do Dawah in community then sin falls on every individual within that community.
Allah speaks about Dawah at various places in Quran: “We made you a middle nation to be witnesses over mankind,” (Surah al-Baqara, 143). “Let there be a community among you, who call to the good, enjoin the right and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success,” (Surah Al-’Imran, verse 104). “And warn your tribe and close ones,” (Surah al-Shura, verse 214).
In these verses, Allah commands Muslims that Dawah is an obligation on every member of the community or nation.
In last sermon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “Convey what you have received from me, even it is a verse,” (Bukhari, Muslim Chapter on Hajj). This Hadith clearly indicates that you should not wait that one day you will become a scholar and then you will be able to do Dawah. No! But one should do Dawah’ if he knows even a single verse of Quran or a single Hadith. You can give Dawah at any time or at any place when one has an opportunity to do Dawah.
You can give Dawah’ at your college/university or at workplace. You can spread Quran and Hadith with fellow non-Muslims and who knows even one word from you can change their lives. The intention in Dawah is necessary and one should do Dawah only to please Allah (SWT). Whenever you give Dawah to Non-Muslims you can give him books, videos of different scholars like Dr. Zakir Naik, Sheikh Ahmad Deedat or Dr. Israr etc.
You can give Dawah as a group or at an individual level as well. You can choose a time table for Dawah. You can give Dawah for a whole week or twice week or once a week. In Dawah, you have a great opportunity to deliver different topics of Islam and comparative religions.
Whenever you get a chance to interact with a non-Muslim, talk to him or her in a very simple manner so that he or she can understand Quran and Hadith easily. Do Dawah passionately. Make yourself up to date in terms of knowledge regarding various issues of Islam. Once you chose to do Dawah, you have to be very humble. Humbleness is one of the ingredients of Dawah. These days you can chose social networking sites for giving Dawah.
Women can also give Dawah. They can run a Dawah centre exclusively for women or they can cater to an Islamic website. The role of women in Dawah is as important as men. The Dawah work of women has a positive effect on whole society because education of one woman is education of society. I believe if our women would take to Dawah as an obligation then this world will be better place to live in. The role of women in Dawah is increasing day-by-day as more and more non-Muslim women are accepting Islam.
Some qualities of a Daee are must include the following:
There are so many Dawah centers in the world that work hard in order to spread Islam. What are we waiting for then. We all should do Dawah. It is an obligation on every Muslim.
