وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا ۚ وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
Allah has said that "WALLAZINA JAHADU FEENA LANAHDIYANNAHUM SUBULANA"
Translation: “And those who strive for — We will surely guide them to Our ways.”
So the person who is doing Dawah effort striving, devoting his life time and money Allah will surely give him Hidayat. For the sake of dawah he has to go to other people making himself /herself lowering his status. All these sacrifices will lead the path of Hidayah and guidance for Daee The invitor first. Allah has assured this.
One misunderstanding that has been spread ed among Muslims that many consider the Dawah activity to be for the invited only, and not for the inviter himself, and that since Dawah has reached everyone, there is practically no need for Dawah at this moment in time. This is a gross misunderstanding. If the invited is impressed by a single session of Dawah of the inviter and relinquishing his past, he enters the fold of Islam, one can imagine the extent to which his impact and Yaqeen (belief) would develop if he (the inviter) consistently engages in Dawah.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا آمِنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي نَزَّلَ عَلَى رَسُولِهِ وَالْكِتَابِ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ مِنْ قَبْلُ وَمَنْ يَكْفُرْ بِاللَّهِ وَمَلاَئِكَتِهِ وَكُتُبِهِ وَرُسُلِهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ فَقَدْ ضَلَّ ضَلاَلاً بَعِيدًا (النساء: 136).
Ya Aiuhallazina Amanu Aminu.............
1.Allah Talla Himself give Dawah to Muslim in Quran. Both these Ayats are for Muslim.
Allah the Exalted says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا ادْخُلُوا فِي السِّلْمِ كَافَّةً
YA AIUHAL LAZINA AMAnud khulu fissilme Kaffah........................
“O you who believe! Enter into peace, all of you together. –Sūrah al-Baqarah: 208
O the believer enter into deen completely
O the believer,believe..........
OTHER EXAMPLES OF DAWAH AMONG MUSLIMS
1. Some of the prophet came to Muslims only For example Zakariya Alaihissalam and Yahya Alaihissalam who were sent to Muslims and did Islah work among the Muslims.
2. Masab Bin Umair R.A. was sent for one year for those who accepted Islam.Rather they requested it.
4. 70-80 % Muslims (at some places) are not even performing the foremost command Salat/Namaz.................and others command....
So it is much needed now a days that Dawah work with all might and effort to be done Both among Muslims and Non Muslims.
Catastrophe of Abandoning the Dawah activities
An important intrinsic qualities of Dawah-i.e the strengthening of Yaqeen (belief)- can be achieved by extending Dawah to Non-Muslims, in the same way, it can be attained by extending it to fellow Muslims as well.
