Al Salaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters,
Dawah is an obligation upon every Muslim because it is commanded by Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala). Today, as the beautiful religion of Islam is being misrepresented and portrayed in a distorted image, it has become incumbent upon every Muslim to deliver the pure message of Islam.
Dawah is so important because:
-It is Allah's order, which we must obey: Allah says in the Quran: (Invite to the Way of Your Lord with wisdom and good advice.) (16:125)
-It is the work of Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala), which we must implement. Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: (And Allah invites to the abode of peace [i.e., Paradise ] and guides whom He wills to a straight path) ( 10:25 )
-It is the work of all Allah's Messengers, which we must fulfill. Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: ( And We certainly sent unto every nation a messenger, [saying], Worship Allah and avoid Taghut) ( 16:36 )
-It is Prophet Muhammad's order (PBUH), which we must obey. The prophet (PBUH) said: (Deliver from me, even a single verse.) Bukhari
-It is the work of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and his companions, which we must replicate. Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: “Say, (O' Muhammad) this is my way, I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah; and I am not of those who associate others with Him) (12:108)
-It is the best work you can do, Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: (And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, Indeed, I am of the Muslims) (41:33)
-To avoid Allah's punishment and gain His mercy, Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: (And when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We saved those who have forbidden evil and seized those who have wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying) (7:165)
-It is our obligation and duty as Muslims living in the West to defend Islam and rectify misconceptions about our faith. Allah (Subhanahu wa-ta'ala) says in the Quran: (And let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong, and they are the ones who are successful). (3:104)
