The Dawah to Islam


Book’s Introduction

In discussing da’wah to Islam the book concentrates more on theme and its obligations and mandubaat (recommended actions). This is because the need today to have knowledge of this methodology has become most pressing and important, superseding all other aspects.

The book concentrates more on the “method of da’wah to establish the Islamic Khilafah” because this aspect represents the backbone of the da’wah to Islam today.

Today, under these circumstances where the Islamic state does not exist, every call that does not make the establishment of the Islamic state its pivot and the centre of its attention, is a partial or deviant call.

* When the book focuses only on the ‘da’wah to Islam’ and concentrates on the ‘method of the da’wah’, especially the ‘method of da’wah to establish the Islamic Khilafah’, it emanates from the fundamental Islamic premises which, although not the subject of discussion of this book, are, however, briefly presented. For example:

  1. – The Islamic ‘Aqeedah (creed) in its clarity and purity, is the most important issue in Islam.
  • – In the pillars of the Islamic ‘Aqeedah, it is not enough to have zann (speculation) or least amount of zann, rather they must be qata’i (definite and decisive). It is not allowed to have taqleed (imitation) in it, otherwise the Muslims will end up taking superstition and follow those who practise deception.
  • – In the thoughts relating to the ‘Aqeedah (peripheral branches to the pillars) it is sufficient to have the least amount of zann, and taqleed is allowed in this matter, the same as it is in the Shar’ee rules.
  • – The Shar’ee rules are taken from their Shar’ee evidences only and they are: the Qur’an, Sunnah, ijmaa’ (consensus) of the Sahabah and qiyas (analogical deduction) based on a Shar’ee ‘illah (divine reason) which has come in a Shar’ee text.

 The one who deduces the Shar’ee rule from its evidence is the learned mujtahid only. The muqallid (follower) is obliged to make sure he has understood the statement of the mujtahid he follows properly.

5 – When the obligations become numerous and difficult for the Muslim such that he is unable to undertake them all, he is required to give preference to the greatest obligation (according to the Shar’ee evidences and not according to whims and personal descretion).

  • When the Muslims are in their natural situation, ie where the Islamic Khilafah exists, carrying of the Islamic da’wah internally would be represented in enjoining the ma’roof and forbidding the munkar and inviting the non-muslims who live inside the Islamic state to embrace Islam.
  •  Carrying the da’wah externally would be represented in inviting the non-muslims, with proof and decisive evidence, to embrace Islam; and this will be done through Jihaad when the Khaleefah deems it appropriate.

As for when the Muslims are in an unnatural situation, ie where the Khilafah does not exist, carrying the Islamic da’wah would be focused internally on the work to establish this Khilafah.

As for enjoining the ma’roof and forbidding the munkar, which is a work of reform, and the da’wah to non-muslims to embrace Islam, this will continue but to a lesser degree. This is because when there is no Islamic state in the Muslim lands implementing the Islamic Sharee’ah, then the lands become dar al- kufr.

In such a case munkaraat become the norm, so the reformatory partial action becomes insufficient or ineffective. The obligation then becomes the radical transformative action, which destroys the system of kufr and establishes the system of Islam. As for carrying the Islamic da’wah outside the Muslim lands when the Islamic Khilafah does not exist, it is represented by the da’wah to non-muslims to enter into Islam.

 This manifests in attacking the non-islamic thoughts to demonstrate their fallacy, and mobilising the efforts of the Muslims living outside the Islamic lands to assist in the establishment of the Islamic Khilafah in the Islamic lands.

  • Indeed, any book that addresses the subject of ‘da’wah to Islam’ is supposed to deal with the basic rules relating to this da’wah, such as the following:

1 – The fact that the work to establish the Khilafah today is fard ‘ayn (an individual obligation), undertaken by expending the utmost energy and with the greatest speed.

  • – The fact that this work must be in a group, and it is not enough to undertake it individually.
  • – The fact that this group must have an ameer (leader) who is obeyed along with a clarification of the limits of his Shar’ee powers.

4- The fact that this group includes men and women, because carrying the da’wah is obligatory on both of them.

  • – The fact that the bond in this group is the Islamic ‘Aqeedah and the Islamic thoughts.
  • – The group is obliged to adopt from the Islamic thoughts, rules and opinions everything it needs to undertake its task, and to make allegiance to the thoughts and not to personalities.
  • – The group must political, because its work is political, which is taking the power to establish the Islamic Khilafah.
  • – The fact that the work of this group is intellectual; and is not the use of violence. This is because it is a work to take the power via the Ummah, after generating the public opinion based on general awareness.
  • – The prohibition for this group to share power in the current kufr regimes.
  1. – The prohibition for this group to be dependent on any of the current kufr systems. Receiving financial assistance or other aid from such systems is a type of dependence.

* Similarly, it is incumbent on any book that embarks on discussing the subject of da’wah to Islam, to deal with the ahkaam (rules) which demonstrate the way this da’wah is undertaken, such as the following matters:

1 – The practical principle; that is, the action should not be improvised, rather it has to be preceded by thought. This thought must not be hypothetical; rather it should result from sensation of the reality. This thought combined with this action must be for the purpose of achieving

 an objective. This objective, action and thought must all be derived from Islam. The ultimate goal is to attain the ridwan (pleasure) of Allah  based on the belief in the Islamic ‘Aqeedah. This keeps the da’wah carrier in the atmosphere of Imaan. At the same time this gives him incentives and keeps him under control.

  • – The distinction between the style and method. The tareeqah (method) is the Sharee’ah ahkaam (rules), which are constant until The Day of Judgement. As for the usloob (styles), they are mubah (permitted) actions selected by the da’wah carrier, which suit the circumstances and situation.
  • – Knowledge of the political reality is necessary just like knowledge of the ahkaam shari’ah. That is because the application of the hukm Shar’ee requires knowledge of the hukm Shar’ee and of its manaat (the reality for which the rule has come). If we know the Shari’a rule but are ignorant of its manaat, then we will be unable to apply this rule.

If we try to apply it, we would make a mistake because we would apply it to other than its reality. The one who works to demolish the system and take power must have sufficient comprehension of the political reality, not only locally but also regionally and internationally.

  • – The work to take the authority and establish the Khilafah cannot be through the people of power and those who hold the authority alone, as some would think. Rather, the da’wah must be conveyed first amongst the people.

Once the da’wah passed the cultural stage to the interaction stage and succeeded in the interaction with the Ummah, and a public opinion emanating from the general awarenes was generated in the Ummah, the kutlah (party) starts to seek the Nusrah from the people of power and those who hold authority.
