1- Da`wah is the Way of Prophet and His Sunnah

The First Command

Since the very beginning of Islam, the Prophet (peace be upon him) received the first command from Allah (Exalted be He) to arise and give Da`wah to people:

O you enveloped in garments. Arise and warn. And magnify your Lord. And purify your garments. And keep away from the idols. And do not slacken in seeking more good. And be patient for the sake of your Lord. (Al-Muddaththir74-1:7)

Unfortunately, da`wah (inviting people to Islam) is not as easy as one imagines. Ibn Al-Qayyim stated that da`wah has the highest status, because

that was the role of all prophets (peace and blessings be upon them). We

constantly read in the Qur’an how the prophets were patient with their

people, with Noah, for example, praying against them only after 950 years of calling them to worship the One God. Nowadays, however, we are quick to condemn people eternally to disbelief, when even in the Qur’an, Almighty Allah tells us that a person has, until just before his death, to believe. We do this mistake either by looking down on others instead of loving for our brothers what we love for ourselves which includes loving Islam for the disbeliever as we love it for ourselves or by giving up on them after failing to see the fruits of our call.

This is why it is crucial to return to the Prophet’s example. When he was in

Mecca, we know that he was attacked brutally for his message. But there were certain ringleaders: Abu Jahal, Abu Lahab, Al-Walid ibn Mugheera, and Abu Sufyan. After almost 20 years of the Prophet’s da`wah, after fighting numerous wars against the Muslims, and after the conquest of Mecca, Abu Sufyan accepted Islam. He then fought for Islam and even lost his eye in one of the battles. Who would have thought that a man like Abu Sufyan would finally accept Islam? He could have apostated as many tribes did after the Prophet’s death, but he did not.

No matter how horrible a person seems to us, we should not assume that this person will never accept Islam. Look at the example of `Umar ibn Al-Khattab, who would beat female slaves when he found out they converted. But indeed Allah guides whom He pleases. `Umar became one of the Prophet’s closest Companions, one of ten Companions given glad tidings they would enter Paradise, and the second of the rightly-guided Caliphs.

Da`wah is not to allure people or put pressure on them to convert to Islam. The dai`ah must be aware that his/her job is not to compel people to enter

Islam exploiting their needs, weakness, circumstances, or poverty, as it is commonly practised by the Christian missionaries. Allah (Exalted be He) said:

There is no compulsion in religion. (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

Moreover, one has to put in the back of his mind that they are not a guardian over people, as Qur’an says:

So remind them you are only one who reminds. You are not a dictator over them. (Al-Ghashiyah 88:21, 22)

In a number of verses in Qur’an , Allah consoles His Messenger for his sorrow over them: So destroy not yourself in sorrow for them. (Fatir 3 5:8) And grieve not over them.

Be Consistent in Your Da`wah

The successful dai`ah should stick to his da`wah under all circumstances and never abandon it. If people turn away from the dai`ah, he/she should exercise more patience and keep carrying on his/her duties with confidence that that the seed he sow, will one day prosper.

It is natural, in the course of the da`wah, to face hardships and obstacles; but this should not make the dai`ah think of him/herself as disqualified for da’wah or magnify his/her mistakes or adopt more forceful methods

for da`wah.

It was natural for him to feel sad because of his people insistence on

disbelief. In a number of verses in Qur’an , Allah consoles His Messenger for

his sorrow over them:

So destroy not yourself in sorrow for them. (Fatir 35:8) And grieve not over them. (An-Nahl 16:127)

It may be that you are going to kill yourself with grief, that they do not become believers. (Ash-Shu`araa’ 26:3)

Perhaps, you would kill yourself in grief, over their footsteps, because they believe not in this narration. (Al-Kahf 18:3)

These verses comforted the Prophet; they do not instruct him to repress his natural feelings of sadness, but rather advise him not to let their rejection trouble him by intensifying his sorrow for them.

The Muslim Business: An Overlooked Da’wah Opportunity

Da`wah for Muslim Co-Workers

If you work for others, then da`wah for you would consist of the following: exemplifying Islamic manners (akhlaq), being an efficient worker, leaving an Islamically oriented conversation piece on your desk or work station to invite questions from the curious, being cordial and friendly to others, assisting them above and beyond the call of duty, and being prepared to discuss your beliefs and traditions at any time.

One perceptive early Muslim, Hasan Al Basri, said:

“…And I shouldn’t find you approaching a group of people who are busy with

something else and then preaching to them. Instead, remain silent and when they ask you to speak, start unraveling your message, for then they will be

ready for it.”

The Blessed Prophet was noted for a very respectful, humble style of conversation. He reasoned with people, not at them. He showed concern for their families, business and well-being, and he was always reserved, never unduly harsh or uncouth.

For further example, we read that Allah instructed His servant, the Blessed Musa, to go to Pharaoh and,

…speak a gentle word to him that he might heed or fear. (Ta- Ha 20:44)

What is da`wah to Muslims? The blessed Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“Seek out your brothers for these three things: If they are sick, visit them; If they are busy, help them, and if they have forgotten, remind them.”

(Mishkat)

Another thing to stay away from is the so called "miracles" about the Quran and Islam that are

not mentioned in the Quran or in the Sunnah of the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon

 

him). One example of the idea of some trees in Germany that are twisted around to spell, "La

 

ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasulullah." This is not true. The picture is a fake and anyone can

 

easily prove this is not real. So where would you be if you had insisted that this was a "proof"

 

that Islam is the right religion?

 

Other fake "miracles" include; a fish with "Allah" written on it; a tree bent toward Makkah in

 

prayer; a pumpkin with "Bismillah Rahman Raheem" on it.

 
 

Another area to avoid is the misconception about the "miracle of numbers" in the Quran. The

stories are many and all of them are false. There is no miracle of "19" in the Quran; this not

 

the occurrence of the word "day" and "night" 365 times (the Muslim calendar is 354 days

 

anyway); the words "angel" and "devil" do not occur the same number of times; and all of the

mathematical equations mentioned about the earth and the water are worthless to someone

who is trying to understand about Allah and Islam. So please stop this propaganda and DO

 

NOT FORWARD these messages to everyone on your list.
