The Obligation of Active Dawah

Image result for invite to islam

If you ever get into discussions with fellow Muslims who are not sure if active dawah (e.g. publicly sharing the revealed Truth) is an obligation then share some of the following textual evidences with them that make this more than clear:

“Invite them to the path of your Sustainer with wisdom and words of good advice; and reason with them in the best way possible.” (Qur’an 16:125)

“Convey from me, even if it is one ayah.” (Al-Bukhari)

“Let those who are present convey to those who are absent. For perhaps the one to whom it is conveyed will understand it better than the one who (first) hears it.” (Ibn Majah)

The Prophet (saaw) said: “There is no man who memorizes knowledge then conceals it, but he will be brought forth on the Day of Resurrection bridled with reins of fire.” (Ibn Majah)

“Those who conceal anything of the clear teachings and true guidance which We have sent down even though We have made them clear in Our Book, Allah curses such people and so do all the cursers” (Qur’an 2:159)
