No one can doubt the importance of calling others towards Islam, “The peace” Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran,
ادْعُ إِلَىٰ سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ
“Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best.” (16:125)
It is one of the obligation on this nation (Muslim Ummah) that they should carry this message (of Islam) to all other people (of other nations) with all sagacity and good wisdom. This is to make sure that every single person on the face of earth gets the message of Allah Almighty. Allah Almighty praises this nation (Muslims) as the best of the nations that have been raised because they are the torch bearer of this message to all humanity. These are the people who carry the message of Allah Almighty and give it to the whole humanity. This is nothing less than a prophetic enjoinder that they are doing. By virtue of this, they have been called the best of the nations.
The blessed Holy Prophet (ﷺ) exhorted his followers not to show slackness in disseminating this message to humanity. It is reported that the blessed Holy Prophet (ﷺ) said, بلغوا عني ولو آية “”Convey from me even an Ayah of the Qur’an.” (Al-Bukhari)
When people of any society give up preaching these religious teachings, the whole society suffers from moral and social ills. So, it is very important that we take up this very seriously and convey this message all across the society without any exception, and this is very important for the stability of any nation. Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran, وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى ٱلْخَيْرِ “And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good.” (3:104)
It is the duty of religious preachers to call people towards goodness. This entails that the preachers should know their subject very well. They should be aware of all the potential rulings that they may come across while preaching Deen Islam.
