'Dawa': Care People, Speak Wisely

Dawat-i-AllahInvitation to Allah: Part IV 

Who is a Dai-i-Allah ?

A Dai-i-Allah is a person who has made the promise to invite people to Allah, and as long as he makes that promise, as long as he takes that determination, then he does it faithfully all the time, all lifelong. And until his last breath he remains a Dai-i-Allah. It is this type of Dai-i-Allah that the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam must have/ produce. And we must also do the work of Dawat-i-Allah with great intelligence.

The Types of Intelligence Needed

By the quality of intelligence, we understand that, firstly we must take a look at history and through historical narratives, we must come to the conclusion that the remedy against all adversity in this area lies in giving and increasing our friendship towards others. It is at this time that people will accept our words [our message in the Dawat-i-Allah]. If not, they will not accept it.

A second type of intelligence, its second quality, which most of the time we put aside, is that we have to talk about the time [the appropriate time] and the situation [we are] because every word is better in its current situation and context. If someone is worried about his work or his mind is busy with other things – he’s lost in thought - and you get to the task of giving him the [divine] messages, then that will not have any effect on him because it is not the moment to give him this message. This person’s situation does not allow him to receive this message. You also need to know that if a person develops disgust for this message, even though what you are presenting to him is a good thing, then he will not be happy. Everyone to whom you are presenting the message in this situation will not appreciate the message. So, think that if the way of presenting [the message] does not take over this disgust, then the Dawat-i-Allah will yield nothing. The work we have to do is a very fragile work. By adopting the model of the Prophet (sa), we must become a blessing for others; and to reach this end, we must speak with wisdom; we must use wise words.

Calling people to God- III

The Qualities of A Dai-i-Allah  

A Dai-i-Allah’s (the one who does the Dawat-i-Allah – i.e. invite people to Allah) mission is to give the message of Allah to the people, calling them to Allah alone. He should never call people to mundane attractions or to take advantage of all things which do not have any relation/ link with the messages of Allah. In other words, [what I am trying to say] he should not use the name of Allah to seek any mundane favour, to fulfill personal worldly desires.

In the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, there should be people – we should be people – who call the world to Allah and this is indeed the true goal of Dawat-i-Allah : to increase the number of people by making them know the message of Allah and to bring them in that very path which shall lead them to Allah (swt), not the path of make-believe and deception, because there are such types of people who instead of doing the Dawat-i-Allah, they try to fool the people [ensnaring them], asking them to listen to them to make them integrate their Jamaat/ communities by promising them worldly riches. This kind of invitation is not a real invitation to Allah. On the contrary, your call should all the time be one which provides the people spiritual riches, providing them the means to increase the level of their spirituality and that of others.

So, our call, our invitation is to Allah only. That is why, each member of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam should not put any other goal in the invitation to Allah (except Allah of course – our sole aim) so as not to spoil this spiritual invite. Your good deed shall prove that you are indeed calling people to Allah. If you accept the true religion, you should call people only to Allah, and you do not have the permission to hide the true [teachings of this] religion, for if you do this, you would not have accomplished your duty as a Dai-i-Allah (one who calls people to Allah). If you hide the truth coming from Allah and you establish yourselves on lies, this would definitely not be good words before the eyes of Allah. It would be a sin in God’s estimation. So, bear in mind that the Dawat-i-Allah is a great responsibility, a great engagement that you have undertaken.

Become A 'Dai-i- Allah'


Dawat-i-AllahPart II

Inviting people to the Divine Path: Duties of Jamaat Members

There is a group or section of people who present themselves completely before the Jamaat and they do the Dawat-i-Allah. There is another group who devotes little time to it, and there are others who present forward their wealth – which indeed they have got through much efforts – before Allah and in this way they think that by doing so, they are proving their claim of being Dai-Illallah as true; but Allah says: “It is necessary to present forward your own selves also.”

In other words : “present your being before anything else.” That is why each member of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam who are sacrificing their wealth but who cannot sacrifice their time, as taught to us in the Quran, is as if he has accepted a handicapped religion. It is as if he does not have one leg. He is handicapped. To spend one’s wealth in the path of Allah is praiseworthy, there is no doubt in it, but this act is not complete. It is like you are walking with only one leg. To walk with your two legs, feeling like a whole, you must complete it with Dawat-i-Allah.

By citing the desires of the people of Islam to do the Dawat-i-Allah in the times of our beloved prophet (saws) and even in the times of the Promised Messiah (as), each Dai-i-Allah who is doing the Dawat-i-Allah should do it with lots of love and sincerity like the first Muslims and our noble prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Their beliefs were solid like concrete and in whatever position/ status they reached, be it at intellectual or non-intellectual level, or any other works for that matter, they gave preference to the Dawat-i-Allah. Their own (mundane) professions came after their spiritual works. They gave preference to the Dawat-i-Allah before the rest of works. They were ready to each become a Dai-i-Allah to obtain the love of Allah. To call people to Allah were their main work. So, today also in this era, all members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam must also give preference to this work [Dawat-i-Allah] over all other works.

'Dawat-i-Allah': Calling people to God- I


Introduction to Part- 1: 

Alhamdulillah, Summa Alhamdulillah, I had since long written a lengthy book on the importance of DAWAT-I-ALLAH. I am hereby presenting it to you in the form of Friday Sermons as this is a very important subject. My disciples have also sought my advice and asked this humble self to expound on this subject so that they may be able to acquire the ability to do the Dawat-i-Allah and become excellent Dai-Illallah. So, this subject shall be divided and made throughout many of my Friday Sermons and I pray that my disciples in India – in Delhi, Kerala, Tamil Nadu – Coimbatore, Trichy, Meleppalayam, Kottar, etc., and my other disciples in the UAE, Africa and in the islands and other countries may benefit from these sermons. May Allah enable them through these sermons to enrich their knowledge in the field of Dawa/ tabligh and to become excellent DAI-ILLALLAH. Insha-Allah. Ameen.

Dawat-i-Allah: An Important Obligation

If we wish to become the companions of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh), it is incumbent for each one of us to invite others towards Allah because the one who sows [who makes efforts] in the path of Allah, he/ she will be among the companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). We must maintain and take great care of our plantation till it is ready for harvest. All members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, National and International who are working hard in the field of Dawat-i-Allah (i.e. inviting people towards Allah), their names are cited in the words of Allah and if you want to become the companions of Hazrat Muhamamd (pbuh), hence it is necessary for you to work hard [just like a labourer who cultivates the land] in the path of Allah. Hence, you will have to create new spiritual qualities in you [to be successful].
