  • 4.  Da`wah (invitation to Allah) is an organized and a continuous effort to call people to: the fold of their Creator, towards accepting Islam as a way of life, and to convince them of the need and urgency of establishing the Deen (religion) of Allah in its entirety, with the sole aim of getting the pleasure of Allah
  • 5. “Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, "I am of those who bow in Islam"?” (Surat Fussilat 41: 33) َ‫د‬ ْ‫ن‬ َّ‫م‬ِ‫م‬ ‫ا‬ ‫ًل‬ْ‫و‬ َ ‫ق‬ ُ‫ن‬ َ‫س‬ ْ‫ح‬ َ ‫أ‬ ْ‫ن‬ َ‫م‬َ‫و‬ِ‫م‬َ‫ع‬َ‫و‬ ِ َّ ‫اَّلل‬ ‫ى‬ َ ‫ل‬ِ‫إ‬ ‫ا‬َ‫ع‬َ‫ل‬ ُ ْ ‫ال‬ َ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬‫ي‬ ِ‫ن‬َّ‫ن‬ِ‫إ‬ َ‫ال‬ َ ‫ق‬َ‫و‬ ‫ا‬ ‫ا‬‫ح‬ ِ‫ال‬َ‫ص‬ََ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ِِ ْ‫س‬
  • 6. “Convey from me even if only one sentence.” (Report by Bukhari, Tarmidzi and Ahmad) ‫وا‬ ُ ‫غ‬َِِ‫ب‬‫و‬ ُ ‫ث‬ ِ‫د‬ َ‫ح‬َ‫و‬ ، ‫ا‬ ‫ة‬َ‫آي‬ ْ‫و‬ َ ‫ل‬َ‫و‬ ‫ي‬ ِ‫ن‬َ‫ع‬ َ ‫ًل‬َ‫و‬ َ‫يل‬ِ‫ئ‬‫ا‬َ‫ر‬ ْ‫س‬ِ‫إ‬ ‫ي‬ ِ‫ن‬َ‫ب‬ ْ‫ن‬َ‫ع‬ ‫ا‬ ِ‫م‬َ‫ع‬َ‫ت‬ ُ‫م‬ َّ‫ي‬ َ ‫ل‬َ‫ع‬ َ‫ب‬ َ ‫ذ‬ َ ‫ك‬ ْ‫ن‬ َ‫م‬َ‫و‬، َ‫ج‬َ‫ر‬ َ‫ح‬ْ‫ق‬ِ‫م‬ ْ ‫أ‬َّ‫و‬َ‫ب‬ َ ‫ت‬َ‫ي‬ ْ ِ َ ‫ف‬ ‫ا‬ ‫ا‬‫د‬ُ‫ه‬ َ‫د‬َ‫ع‬ َ‫ن‬ِ‫م‬ِ‫ار‬َّ‫الن‬
  • 7. 1. Da’wah was the duty of the last messenger, Mohammed (PBUH), and the duty of all messengers before him. 2. It is the responsibility of the entire Muslim nation. 3.

Please, find someone else, – I don’t have enough time (must read for my exams), – I may lose my friends, position or job, – I am not a religious person (my religion is light), – I will do it when I am old but not now (I put a plan for my entire life), – I might get hurt by other people, – Allah would have guided the unguided if he would have wanted.
