Purpose of Da’wah


بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,

It is very important to understand why we as Muslims do da’wah and what our duties are when doing so. As such, Br. Bassam Zawadi has summarized a list from the work, “al-Ahkaam wal-Dawaabhit al-Muta’aliqa bil-Hiwaar ma’a Ghayr al-Muslimeen – (The Rulings and Criteria Related to Dialogues with Non-Muslims)”, by  Dr. Sahl bin al-‘Otaibi.

  1. Clarifying that Islam is the only religion acceptable to God.
  2. Clarifying the principles and teachings of Islam so that others may understand what it is about.
  3. Declaring Islam’s innocence from the false allegations made about it.
  4. Boosting the morale of Muslims who especially live as a minority in countries where missionaries are active in their evangelism.
  5. Supporting the stance of Muslim minorities and help them demand their rights.
  6. Helping create mutual understanding and encouraging peaceful co-existence with the disbelievers living next to us and to prevent fitnah.
  7. Clarifying the reality and truth of other religions through the lens of Qur’an and Sunnah.
  8. Inviting the People of the Book to their true original religion and making apparent the corruption which crypt into their books.

    You seem to know the true word of God that the Christians were supposed to have, then maybe you can tell us what has crept in so that what you Muslims.

    Maybe you can explain to me some of the things that are in the Koran.

    [19:30] (The infant spoke and) said, “I am a servant of GOD. He has given me the scripture, and has appointed me a prophet.

    What is the source for this verse in the koran was it given from heaven? Lets have a look where this verse comes from.

    The Infancy gospel of Thomas.

    Where have we seen this story before.

    III. 1 Now Jesus made of that clay twelve sparrows: and it was the Sabbath day. And a child ran and told Joseph, saying: Behold, thy child playeth about the brook, and hath made sparrows of the clay, which is not lawful. 2 And he when he heard it went and said to the child: Wherefore doest thou so and profaneth the Sabbath? But Jesus answered him not, but looked upon the sparrows and said: Go ye, take your flight, and remember me in your life. And at the word they took flight and went up into the air. And when Joseph saw it he was astonished.

    Did Jesus commit murder?

    IV. 1 And after certain days, as Jesus passed through the midst of the city, a certain child cast a stone at him and smote his shoulder. And Jesus said unto him: Thou shalt not finish thy course. And straightway he also fell down and died. And they that were there were amazed, saying: From whence is this child, that every word which he speaketh becometh a perfect work? 2 But they also departed and accused Joseph, saying: Thou wilt not be able to dwell with us in this city: but if thou wilt, teach thy child to bless and not to curse: for verily he slayeth our children: and every thing that he saith becometh a perfect work.

    This next text comes from the gospel of THomas the Israelite.

    When Allah saith: O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour unto thee and unto thy mother; how I strengthened thee with the holy Spirit, so that thou spakest unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity; and how I taught thee the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and how thou didst shape of clay as it were the likeness of a bird by My permission, and didst blow upon it and it was a bird by My permission, and thou didst heal him who was born blind and the leper by My permission; and how thou didst raise the dead by My permission; and how I restrained the Children of Israel from (harming) thee when thou camest unto them with clear proofs, and those of them who disbelieved exclaimed: This is naught else than mere magic;

    These 2nd century stories are in your koran.

    Jesus is sinless yet in this infancy gospel of Thomas you find Jesus committing murder how could this be a book from a righteous and holy God.

  • Hi Ijaz
