Dawah is the basic responsibility

(Editor Monthly ARMUGHAN, Phulat)

O Messenger! Proclaim the (message) which hath been sent to thee from thy Lord. If thou didst not, thou wouldst not have fulfilled and proclaimed His mission. And Allah will defend thee from men (who mean mischief), For Allah guided not those who reject Faith. (Qur'an, 005.067)

Preaching of religion or Dawah is the basic responsibility of the entire Muslim Community (Ummah). Muslims flourished everywhere till they fulfilled this duty with zeal and sincerity. When they became slack or abandoned it they lost material glory and reputation in the world. The most effective and successful solution of all challenges and problems faced by Muslims all over the world is to undertake practical work of Dawah. We should remember the plight of Muslim in Spain. They excelled in wealth, learning knowledge and trade but took no interest in preaching and Dawah. This resulted in great disaster and downfall of Muslims in Spain despite their material supremacy. If Muslims want to spend honourable life with full identification of their religion and culture and attain real prosperity they must discharge their fundamental responsibility of preaching and Dawah. The Holy Al-Qur'an, in 005.067 [Al-Maeda (The Table, The Table Spread)] says:

يَا أَيُّهَا الرَّسُولُ بَلِّغْ مَا أُنْزِلَ إِلَيْكَ مِنْ رَبِّكَ وَإِنْ لَمْ تَفْعَلْ فَمَا بَلَّغْتَ رِسَالَتَهُ وَاللَّهُ يَعْصِمُكَ مِنَ النَّاسِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الْكَافِرِينَ
