Dawah Importance Duty Obligation for Ummate Muslima

THE DAWAH AND its importance
These Du'aat are following the directive of Allah Ta'ala. Allah TA'ala instructed Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) thus: "Say! This is my path. I invite towards Allah with confidence. I do so and those who follow me." ... This path is the path of calling towards Allah Ta'ala and towards the true Deen.
The Daa'ie (inviter) calls towards Allah Ta'ala with the knowledge that Allah Ta'ala has revealed in the Holy Quran. About this knowledge Allah Ta'ala says: "The book which we revealed upon them so that they may ponder over its verses and so that the intelligent may take heed."
Hence Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is informing the Ummah that this is his path. Likewise every person whose intention is sincere will tread on this path - the path of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). He will thus invite towards Allah Ta'ala with knowledge and confidence.

This duty is not restricted to any one group. It applies to every person who has followed the path of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and accepted his guidance. The one who is most deserving to be called the follower of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the one closest to him is that person who adheres to what has been revealed to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in the Holy Quran and to his Sunnah.
