Role of Non Arabs in the Spread of Islam


The first recipients of this Quran were the Arabs. While they were honoured with this, a great responsibility was also placed upon them.

Allah Ta'ala says: "And verily it is a remembrance for you and your nation, and soon they will be questioned."

The Arabs will be questioned with regard to this responsibility of propagating the message of the Quran.

Hence Allah Ta'ala also cautions them that "if you turn away He will replace you with another nation. then they will not be like you."

Hence O Arabs, this is an honour for you if you fulfil its responsibility. If you do not do so then Allah Ta'ala will raise another nation who will be better than you in inviting towards His Deen.

This has been openly witnessed. Allah Ta'ala has strengthened Islam greatly with non-Arabs.

1.We find that most of the great works of Tafsir, Hadith like Imam Bukhari,Imam Muslim,Imam Tirmidhi etc. and commentaries of Hadith have been compiled by non-Arabs.

2.Scholars and saviour of Islamic sprit like Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi, Shaikh Mujaddid Alfathni who saved Islam from Akbar rule in India ,Muinuddin Chishti R.A., Nizamuddin Aulia R.A. who spreade Islam in larger part of India were Non Arabs.
Shah Waliullah Muhaddith Dehlawi, Great Thinker Allama Iqbal,Great Daee Maulana Muhammad Ilyas, Great Writer Maulana Abul Alaa Maudoodi,and Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi who served as different front of Islam and impacted in a big way to Islamic world were non Arabs.
They were people who followed the Deen of Allah Ta'ala and the Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).

Hence Allah granted them knowledge as well as the ability to practice upon it. Hence He used them to benefit mankind greatly.

In the last 300 years The great Ulama of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Khurasan, has done remarkable Job for Islamic world.etc.

So all of us has to be cautious BOTH ARAB and Non Arabs for the work of Allah.
If we will not do Allah will take the work from others. As he took from Mangoles it is not difficult for him to take the work of Islam from Americans and British and French. All human being are slave of Allah and he can guide and give Hidayat to anyone.

We regard these personalities and we pray to Allah Ta'ala to resurrect us with them in Jannah.
