Dawat Ilallah
– Invitation towards Allah
“Say: This is my way, I call towards Allah”
Almighty Allah sent many Messengers for the guidance of mankind, the first being Hazrat Aadam Alayhis Salaam and the last and final messenger being Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
Every Nabi and Messenger including Hazrat Musa Alayhis Salaam and Hazrat Isaa bin Maryam Alayhis Salaam were sent either to a particular tribe, place or people for a period of time.
The only exception to this is that the last and final messenger Hazrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) has been sent for all mankind till the last and final day. This is the reason that nowhere in an authentic proof is there a single statement that any Nabi or Messenger (prophet) invited the whole of mankind to accept his message. The only Nabi and Messenger that invited the whole of mankind, is our Beloved Nabi Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
The effort and sacrifices of the Ambiyaa Alayhimus Salaam were done for the Deeni and Dunyawi (worldly) benefit of their Ummat, and not for their own personal material benefit. They never kept material wealth and benefit before them and time and again proclaimed:  "My reward is only upon the Lord of the universe."It is mentioned in Surah Sabaa: "Say, whatever I do ask of you, keep it for yourselves, my reward is only by Allah,"
The Ambiyaa Alayhimus Salaam did not seek anything from the people, their only aim was to save them from kufr and shirk and thus enable them to enter Jannat.
Dawat illallah is a most important aspect of Deen. As a favour of Allah Ta'ala, it has been given as a specialty of this Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), that no other Ummat was blessed with this work.
A MUSLIM IS A DA'EE WHEN HE RECITES THE KALIMAH
The permeance of Imaan settled in the hearts of the Sahaba Kiraam Radhiallahu Anhum and was coloured in the colour of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. The efforts of Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and his Companions Radhiallahu Anhum is famous and always continued.
Whoever became a Muslim, at that instant he became a Daa'ee (inviter, caller); and from the very same moment he would begin to give Dawat to others to accept Islam. This is completely evident in the lives of the Sahaba Radhiallahu Anhum.
One year Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam gave Dawat to the two tribes of Madina Munawwara, the Aus and the Khazraj, in Mina during the Haj-season and introduced himself to them for the first time. These people accepted Islam and the next year they presented themselves to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam and gave him a Dawat (invitation) to come to Madina Munawwara. Within three or four months Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam made Hijrat to Madina Munawwara. Apart from a very few munaafiqeen (hypocrites), all the people of the Aus and Khazraj tribes had already accepted Islam (due to the Dawat of the first group).
The Jews did not accept Islam except for a handful. They had come and settled in Madina Munawwara centuries ago, with this intention, that when the Khaatimun-Nabiyeen (Seal of Prophets) Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam 'comes, then we will bring Imaan in him and join him in Jihad with the kaafirs. Then they did the opposite, 'as Allah Ta'ala says in the holy Quraan:
"And when that which they knew (and recognised) came to them, they rejected (made kufr and disbelieved)."
It is compulsory and obligatory for Muslims to keep the work of Dawat alive and also to give Dawat to non-Muslims. Only by keeping the work of Dawat alive and flourishing, has Islam spread in the whole world. The kings were not the people who did this work, it was the Sufiyaah Kiraam and the Ulema (Rahimullah Alayhim Ajma'een) who kept this work going and alive. Hundreds of thousands of people brought Imaan and reformed themselves at their hands.
It is very famous that nine million (9 000 000) people accepted Islam at the hands of Sheikh Mu'eenudin Chishti (Rahmatullah Alayh) in India. In the massive country of India, very few people are of Siddeeqi, Farooki, Uthmaani and Alawi descent. The vast majority were the offspring of mushrikeen (Hindus) whose forefathers had all accepted Islam. They were attracted to the purity and soundness of Tauheed (Oneness) of Allah Ta'ala and loved it with all their hearts. They became aware of the evil, darkness and sin of shirk (making partners with Allah Ta'ala) and bid'at (innovations). Consequently with true and sincere hearts, without any force, they accepted Islam.
Allah Subhaanahu Ta' ala has ended future Prophethood upon the advent of Hazrat Muhammad, Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam. He has been sent as a universal Nabi (messenger) of all mankind, all places and for all times. No new prophet is to come after him, for Allah Ta'ala says in the Quraan: "And we have not sent you but for all mankind, a giver of glad-tidings and a Warner (against evil) but most people do not know."
Thus this most important aspect and work of Dawah, which was exclusively the domain of the Ambiyaa (Alayhimus Salaam) has devolved upon the shoulders of this Ummat.
Allah Ta'ala has spoken most glowingly of those people who do Dawat, in the Quraan Kareem:
"And who says any better speech than him who calls (gives Dawat) towards Allah."
[0 Muhammad] "Say: This is my way, I call towards Allah, upon insight, I and whoever follows me. Pure is Allah and I am not from amongst the polytheist (disbelievers)."
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam has said: "Convey from me, even if it be single verse.”

Don’t ask “What”? Ask “Why? (Part One of Two)

For what is happening in the world, locally and abroad, we turn to SABC, CNN and BBC. For why its happening, we turn to QSC – Qur’an and Sunnah Channel. In fact, QSC has an additional feature that no other satellite station has: it has a “future fast forward” button that tells us what will happen in the near future as well as the far future. What we see now on SABC, CNN and BBC, QSC already showed it millions of years ago, so let us rather tune in to the real divine station, not the biased and inaccurate earthly ones.

As the sickening and gruesome mass killing continue in Syria, and its people either become refugees or sitting ducks, everyone’s eyes will be glued on the television, the newspapers or the internet on how the media will spin its web of lies to justify the murderous USA absurdity of “killing and destroying in order to stop the killing and destroying.” As the bombs fall, we will wonder: “Is taking a life with a bullet or a knife acceptable, but not with chemicals?” Some will ask: “If bullets killed millions over a 2 year period, the west is OK with it. But if you use chemical warfare for one day supplied by the west themselves, then you are in trouble.” Western logic assumes that everyone in this world are idiots....Read More >>
