Tabligh literally means ‘to convey’. Contextually, it refers to conveying the message of Islam. This is the sunnah of all the prophets. The most important rule of tabligh is hikmah. Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran:
ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة
Invite (people) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good counsel.  (Verse: 16:125)
 Whosoever does tabligh must adopt hikmah. It is only then, that people will understand and accept.
Tablighi Jamaat is not a jamaat/group Rather it is a movement of of Ahle Sunnat Wala Jamaat for Dawah Tabligh & Islah with special emphasis on self reformation of self and doing Dawah with Qualities and Hikmah.

Proof from Quran and Hadith For The Work of Tabligh
 The work of tabligh ‘has strong basis in Quran and sunnah’. There are numerous verses of the Quran and the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that support the practice of tabligh. Hereunder are a few of them:
 From the Holy Quran:
ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة
Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel.    (Verse: 16:125)
ولتكن منكم أمة يدعون إلى الخير ويأمرون بالمعروف وينهون عن المنكر
And there has to be a group of people from among you who call towards good and prevent from evil. (Verse: 3:104)
ومن أحسن قولا ممن دعا إلى الله وعمل صالحا وقال إنني من المسلمين
 And who is better in utterance than the one who called people towards Allah, and acts righteously and says, “I am one of those who submit themselves (to Allah Ta’ala).  (Verse: 41:33)

From the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam):
فقال أبو سعيد أما هذا فقد قضى ما عليه سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول من رأى منكم منكرا فليغيره بيده فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه وذلك أضعف الإيمان
Hazrat Abu Sa’eed (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that he heard Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, “Whosoever witnesses a forbidden act being committed, he should prevent it by the use of his hands; if he is unable to do so, then he should prevent it with his tongue; if he is unable to do so, he should at least consider it a vice in his heart; and this is a very low level of Iman”.
(Sahih Muslim Vol.2 Pg.211/2 - Darul Ma’rifah)
عن النعمان بن بشير رضي الله عنهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال مثل القائم على حدود الله والواقع فيها كمثل قوم استهموا على سفينة فأصاب بعضهم أعلاها وبعضهم أسفلها فكان الذين في أسفلها إذا استقوا من الماء مروا على من فوقهم فقالوا لو أنا خرقنا في نصيبنا خرقا ولم نؤذ من فوقنا فإن يتركوهم وما أرادوا هلكوا جميعا وإن أخذوا على أيديهم نجوا ونجوا جميعا
It has been reported on the authority of Nu’man bin Bashir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “There are people who do not transgress the limits (laws) of Allah Ta’ala, and there are others who do so. They are like two groups who boarded a ship; one of them settled on the upper deck, and the other on the lower deck of the ship. When the people of the lower deck needed water, they said, “Why should we cause trouble to the people of the upper deck when we can have plenty of water by making a hole in our deck”. Now, if the people of the upper deck do not prevent this group from such foolishness, all of them will perish; but if they stop them, they will be saved”.
(Sahih Al Bukhari Vol.3 Pg.152 - Darul fikr)

Tablighi jamaat call is based on Quran and Ahadith and always guided by Pious Ulema and Muftiyan Karam and Scholars of Sunnah and Knowledge
Their  call is for complete deen and they say to people:
Our success in this life and the life hereafter is in obeying the commandments of Allah (SWT) and in following the noble ways (Sunnah) of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam)
There is ABUNDANT EVIDENT from the Qur’aan in their call as Allah (SWT) has said:
وَأَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ لَعَلَّڪُمۡ تُرۡحَمُونَ
[3:132]Obey Allah and the Messenger, so that you may be blessed.
قُلۡ أَطِيعُواْ ٱللَّهَ وَٱلرَّسُولَ*ۖ فَإِن تَوَلَّوۡاْ فَإِنَّ ٱللَّهَ لَا يُحِبُّ ٱلۡكَـٰفِرِينَ
[3:32] Say: .Obey Allah and the Messenger. Then, should they turn back, Allah does not love the disbelievers.
قَدۡ أَفۡلَحَ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنُونَ
[23:1]Success is really attained by the believers
وَعَدَ ٱللَّهُ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ وَٱلۡمُؤۡمِنَـٰتِ جَنَّـٰتٍ۬ تَجۡرِى مِن تَحۡتِهَا ٱلۡأَنۡهَـٰرُ خَـٰلِدِينَ فِيہَا وَمَسَـٰكِنَ طَيِّبَةً۬ فِى جَنَّـٰتِ عَدۡنٍ۬*ۚ وَرِضۡوَٲنٌ۬ مِّنَ ٱللَّهِ أَڪۡبَرُ*ۚ ذَٲلِكَ هُوَ ٱلۡفَوۡزُ ٱلۡعَظِيمُ

[9:72] Allah has promised to the believers, male and female, gardens beneath which rivers flow, where they shall live forever, and good homes in gardens of eternity. And Allah‘s pleasure is above all. That is the supreme success.
Tabligh Remind people as

They remind our Muslim brothers and Sisters to change their life according to Qur’aan and Sunnah and we believe that our reminder also has evidence from the book of Allah (SWT):
وَذَكِّرۡ فَإِنَّ ٱلذِّكۡرَىٰ تَنفَعُ ٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ
[51:55] And keep reminding, because reminding benefits the believers.

How to actually change their life? We refer them to the Ulama (& people of knowledge) and we believe that we evidence for that from the book of Allah (SWT) as well:
فَسۡـَٔلُوٓاْ أَهۡلَ ٱلذِّڪۡرِ إِن كُنتُمۡ لَا تَعۡلَمُونَ

[21:7]...So, ask the people (having the knowledge) of the Message, if you do not know...

 The approach of Tablighi Jamaat from Quran and Hadith
Tablighi Jamaat adopt softness and conciliatory attitude with wisdom. They do Nahi Anil Munkar, try to eradicate the sins, Bidah ,Shirk from the society with  the soft, lenient and conciliatory approach. They have evidence for this approach in Quran and Hadith. 
(Note: TJ is not objecting interfering to those who want to be harsh.But Tablighi Jamaat methodology has very strong support in Quran and Hadith. Allah has opened the Hikmat on Ulema and Mashaikh and only Allah is the doer.)
When Allah (SWT) sent Sayyidina Musa (AS) to Fir'aun he was commanded
فَقُولاَ لَهُ قَوْلاً لَيِّنًا لَعَلَّهُ يَتَذَكَّرُ أَوْ يَخْشَى (طه: 44
[[20:44] So speak to him in soft words. May be, he accepts the advice or fears (Allah).
(No Muslim group/Person is as bad as Firaun (Pharao) and no Daee/person who has come for correction is as good as Sayyidina Musa (AS) who was a prophet.)
And Allah (SWT) states:
ادْعُ إِلَى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُمْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ هُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَنْ ضَلَّ عَنْ سَبِيلِهِ وَهُوَ أَعْلَمُ بِالْمُهْتَدِينَ (النحل: 125). 
[16:125] Invite (people) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good counsel. And argue with them in the best of manners... 

فَبِمَا رَحْمَةٍ مِنْ اللَّهِ لِنْتَ لَهُمْ وَلَوْ كُنْتَ فَظًّا غَلِيظَ الْقَلْبِ لاَنْفَضُّوا مِنْ حَوْلِكَ فَاعْفُ عَنْهُمْ وَاسْتَغْفِرْ لَهُمْ وَشَاوِرْهُمْ فِي الأَمْرِ فَإِذَا عَزَمْتَ فَتَوَكَّلْ عَلَى اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُتَوَكِّلِينَ (آل عمران: 159).
[3:159] So, (O Prophet) it is through mercy from Allah that you are gentle to them. Had you been rough and hard-hearted, they would have dispersed from around you...

Narrated by Aisha: Allah's Apostle (peace be upon him) said: Kindness is not to be found in anything but that it adds to its beauty and it is not withdrawn from anything but it makes it defective. [Muslim]

Tablighi Jamaat Khurooj Fi Sabilillah
Ahadith about Sahaba leaving there home for peaceful Dawah and preaching to Muslims other than for War in Jihad?

It is fairly obvious that there is nothing wrong with visiting Muslims as a group to teach them their Deen.

وَمَا كَانَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لِيَنفِرُوا كَافَّةً فَلَوْلاَ نَفَرَ مِنْ كُلِّ فِرْقَةٍ مِنْهُمْ طَائِفَةٌ لِيَتَفَقَّهُوا فِي الدِّينِ وَلِيُنذِرُوا قَوْمَهُمْ إِذَا رَجَعُوا إِلَيْهِمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَحْذَرُونَ (التوبة: 122
It is not (necessary) for all the believers to go forth; So, why should it not be that a group from every section of them goes forth, so that they may acquire perfect understanding of the Faith, and so that they may warn their people when they return to them, so that they may take due care (of the rules of Shaniah).

The following Narrations gives Example of Prophet time and of Sahaba time. First there are 7-8 Hadith about prophet Period.
 Then there is a long account of Khilafat Period of Hazrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu. When Islam spreaded in his period to new areas . He sent Sahaba for teaching of Muslims. He sent Jamaat of Shaba to Hims Damscuss and Palestine. He also instructed the working plan for teaching there.

Prophet Era Examples
حدثنا أبو بكر بن أبي شيبة حدثنا وكيع عن شعبة عن سعيد بن أبي بردة عن أبيه عن جده أن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم بعثه ومعاذا إلى اليمن فقال يسرا ولا تعسرا وبشرا ولا تنفرا وتطاوعا ولا تختلفا 
1.    It has also been narrated by Sa'd b. Abu Burda through his father through his grandfather that the Prophet of Allah (may peace be upon him) sent him and Mu'adh (on a mission) to the Yemen, and said (by way of advising them): Show leniency (to the people) ; don't be hard upon them; give them glad tidings (of Divine favours in this world and the Hereafter) ; and do not create aversion. Work in collaboration and don't be divided. [Muslim]
Then afterwards Abu Musa Asharee Raziallahu Anhu was also sent to assist them.

حدثني عبد الأعلى بن حماد حدثنا يزيد بن زريع حدثنا سعيد عن قتادة عن أنس بن مالك رضي الله عنه أن رعلا وذكوان وعصية وبني لحيان استمدوا [ ص: 1501 ] رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم على عدو فأمدهم بسبعين من الأنصار كنا نسميهم القراء في زمانهم كانوا يحتطبون بالنهار ويصلون بالليل حتى كانوا ببئر معونة قتلوهم وغدروا بهم فبلغ النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقنت شهرا يدعو في الصبح على أحياء من أحياء العرب على رعل وذكوان وعصية وبني لحيان 
2.    Narrated Anas:  The people of the tribes of Ril, Dhakwan, 'Usiya and Bani Lihyan came to the Prophet and claimed that they had embraced Islam, and they requested him to support them with some men to fight their own people. The Prophet supported them with seventy men from the Ansar whom we used to call Al-Qurra'(i.e. Scholars) who (out of piety) used to cut wood during the day and pray all the night. So, those people took the (seventy) men till they reached a place called Bi'r-Ma'ana where they betrayed and martyred them. So, the Prophet invoked evil on the tribe of Ril, Dhakwan and Bani Lihyan for one month in the prayer. [Bukhari]

3.     Hadhrat Aasim bin Umar bin Qataadah Raziallahu Anhu narrates that delegates from the Udhal and Qaara tribes, both branches of the Jadeelah clan, came to Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam  after the Battle of Uhud. They requested Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam  saying, "Islaam has come to our land, so please send some of your companions with us to teach us the Qur'aan and assist us in understanding Islaam." Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam then sent six Sahabah, the Ameer of whom was Hadhrat Marthad bin Abu Marthad Raziallahu Anhu, who was a close friend of Hadhrat Hamzah bin Abdul Muttalib Raziallahu Anhu. The Hadith then continues to speak about the Battle of Rajee. (I) Haakim (Vol.3 Pg.222).

4.    Hadhrat Ali Raziallahu Anhu narrates, "Some people from Yemen once came to Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam  saying, 'please send to us someone who will help us develop an understanding of the Deen, who will teach us the Sunnah and judge between us by the Book of Allaah.' Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, '0 Ali! Go to the people of Yemen, develop an understanding of Deen amongst them, teach them the Sunnah and judge between them by the Book of Allaah.' I responded by saying:' ''But the people of Yemen are a foolish bunch who will bring me cases about which I will have no knowledge.' Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam  placed his hand on my chest and reassured me saying, 'Go. Allaah shall guide your heart and make your tongue unwavering.' (By the blessings of this du'aa) Until this day, I have never doubted any judgement I have passed between two persons." (2) Ibn Jareer, as quoted in Muntakhab KanzuJ UmmaaJ(Vol.5 Pg.37).

5.    Hadhrat Anas Raziallahu Anhu narrates that some people from Yemen once approached Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam with the request, "Do send with us someone who will teach us the Qur'aan." Rasulullaah took hold of the hand of Hadhrat Abu ubaydah bin Jarraah Raziallahu Anhu and sent him with taleem saying, ''This is the most trustworthy person of this Ummah." (3) Haakim (Vo1.3 Pg.267).
Another narration states that the people of Yemen requested Rasulullaah for someone who would teach them the Sunnah and Islaam.(4)
(4) Ibn Sa'd (Vol.3 Pg.299).

6.    Hadhrat Abu Bakr bin Muhammad bin Amr bin Hazam Raziallahu Anhu said, "Here with us is the letter (of appointment) that Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam had written for Hadhrat Amr bin Hazam Raziallahu Anhu when Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam  sent him to Yemen to educate the people (in Islaam), to teach them the Sunnah and to collect their zakaah. The letter was an undertaking from Hadhrat Amr bin Hazam Raziallahu Anhu and a briefing.
The letter stated:
"In the name of Allaah, the Most Kind, the Most Merciful This is a letter from Allaah and His Rasool Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. O, you who have Imaan, fulfil the undertakings you make.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَوْفُوا بِالْعُقُودِ
{Surah Maa'idah, verse I}.
This is an undertaking that Muhammad Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam is making with Amr bin Hazam Raziallahu Anhu when dispatching him to Yemen. His instructions are to have Taqwa in all matters because verily Allaah loves those who have Taqwa and those who do good."
 Ibn Abi Haatim, as quoted in the TalSeerof Ibn Katheer (VoU Pg.3).

7.      Hadhrat Abu Moosa Ash'ari Raziallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam send him and Hadhrat Mu'aadh bin Jabal to Yemen with instructions to teach the Qur'aan to the people. (2) Abu Nu'aym in his Hilya (Vol. I Pg.256).

8.    Hadhrat Ammaar bin Yaasir Raziallahu Anhu relates, "Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam once sent me to a clan belonging to the Qais tribe to teach themthe Shari'ah ofIslaam. However, I found them to be like wild camels, with their gazes always aspiring for more and with no other interests besides their goats and camels. I therefore returned to Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. who asked, '0 Ammaarl What happened?' When I related to Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam what the people were like and how indifferent they were, Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, '0 Ammaar Should I not inform you of people even stranger than these? They are people who know what these people are ignorant of and are still indifferent towards it as these people are.",(3) Bazzaar and Tabraani in his Kabeer, as quoted in Targheeb wat Tarheeb (Val.l Pg.91J.
At the time of Sahabah
There is a long account of Khilafat Period of Hazrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu. When Islam spreaded in his period to new areas for teaching of Muslims He sent Jamaat of Shaba to Hims Damscuss and Palestine. He also instructed the working plan for teaching there.

1.     Hadhrat Muhammad bin Ka'b Qurazi Raziallahu Anhu reports that only five persons (from amongst the Ansaar) had memorised the entire Qur'aan during the lifetime of Rasulullaah . These were Hadhrat Mu'aadh bin Jabal Raziallahu Anhu, Hadhrat Ubaadah bin Saamit Raziallahu Anhu, Hadhrat Ubay bin Ka'b Raziallahu Anhu Hadhrat Abu Ayyoob Raziallahu Anhu and Hadhrat Abu Dardaa Raziallahu Anhu It was during the Khilaafah of Hadhrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu that Hadhrat Yazeed bin Abu Sufyaan Raziallahu Anhu wrote to Hadhrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu with the request, "The population of Shaam is great. The cities are overflowing with people who have accepted Islaam and are in dire need of people to teach them the Qur'aan and to create an understanding of Deen amongst them. 0 Ameerul Mu'mineen Do assist me by sending men who will teach them." Hadhrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu then sent for the five Ansaar mentioned and said to them, "Your brothers in Shaam have pleaded to me to send to them people who will be able to teach them the Qur'aan and create and understanding of Deen amongst the people. Please assist me with three of you. May Allaah shower His Mercy on you! YOU may draw lots if you please, or if there are any volunteers amongst you, they may leave immediately." "There is no need to draw lots," they submitted, "While this man Abu Ayyoob Raziallahu Anhu is too old, this man Ubay bin Ka'b Raziallahu Anhu is ill" It was therefore Hadhrat Mu'aadh bin Jabal Raziallahu Anhu, Hadhrat Ubaadah bin Saamit Raziallahu Anhu and Hadhrat Abu Dardaa Raziallahu Anhu who went. Hadhrat Umar's Raziallahu Anhu instructions to them were, "Start with Hims because there is a variety of people there and there you will find such people who learn very quickly. When you identify such people, direct the others towards them (to learn). When you are eventually satisfied with the people there, one of you may remain behind while the second proceeds to Damascus and the third to Palestine." The three Sahabah Raziallahu Anhu therefore proceeded to Hims, where they stayed until they were satisfied with the (learning of the) people. Hadhrat Ubaadah Raziallahu Anhu stayed on there while Hadhrat Abu Dardaa Raziallahu Anhu proceeded to Damascus and Hadhrat Mu'aadh Raziallahu Anhu to Palestine. Hadhrat Mu'aadh Raziallahu Anhu stayed on in Palestine until he passed away there in the plague of Amwaas. Hadhrat Ubaadah bin Saamit Raziallahu Anhu then left for Palestine and also passed away there. As for Hadhrat Abu Dardaa Raziallahu Anhu, he lived in Damascus until his death. (I) Ibn Sa'd (VolA Pg.l72) and Haakim. as quoted in Kanzul Ummaal (VoU Pg.281). Imam Bukhaari has reported a similar narration in his Taareekh Sagheer (Pg.22).
2.     Hadhrat Haaritha bin Mudarrib Raziallahu Anhu narrates that he read the letter Hadhrat Umar Raziallahu Anhu wrote to the people of Kufa. The letter read: "I have sent Ammaar Raziallahu Anhu as your governor and Abdullaah bin Mas'ood Raziallahu Anhu as .your teacher and advisor. These two are from amongst the choicest companions of Rasulullaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, so listen to them and follow them. Take note that I have given precedence to you people overmyself by sending Abdullaah bin Mas'ood  to you (because I require him here in Madinah)." (4) Ibn Sa'd (Vo1.6 page.).
3.     Hadhrat Abul Aswad Duwali says, "When I arrived in Basrah, Hadhrat Imraan bin Husayn Abu Nujayd Raziallahu Anhu was there. Hadhrat Umar bin Khattaab Raziallahu Anhu had sent him there to create an understanding of Deen amongst the people." (5) Ibn Sa'd (Vol. 7 Pg.I0). (Many of these narrations has been collected at one place in (HAYATUS SAHABA VOL 3 PAGE 236-239)

No war happened in Many areas. Sahaba Spreaded Islam to East coast of Africa, Indonesia, China (Large Part of the World)…By means of??
Some Orientalist historian (Mushtashriqeen) always misprojected Sahaba as warriorThe peaceful missions of Shaba were not highlighted by them in history. Even at the time war their approach was not highlighted.
Sahaba spreaded Islam to Remote corner of the world. Their mission was spread of message of Allah and not for the conquest or fighting a war. There is no doubt that for the spread of the message of Allah if needed war has been mandated and Sahaba fought that also, and till Qiyamat these command of Allah is en force. For legal status of Jihad and all the detail about it one can refer the book of Mufti Taqi Usmani on the issue. He has described very detailed view.)
More or less it has affected Muslims and many of the us think on that line. When we talk about spread of Islam in our mind only comes the picture of Iran Rome Syria etc. War and fighting and We totally forget So many other countries and areas where no battle was fought. We also forget the sequence of event before war.(e.g of Iran War)

The Daees of Islam went to these Places and countries for peaceful Dawah where no war fought. E.g.
1. Indonesia and Malaysia.
Indonesia is a country that has the maximum number of Muslims in the world.The majority of people in Malaysia are Muslims. May one ask, “Which Muslim army went to Indonesia and Malaysia?”
2. East Coast of Africa.
Similarly, Islam has spread rapidly on the East Coast of Africa. One may again ask, if Islam was spread by the sword, “Which Muslim army went to the East Coast of Africa?”
3. Southern Indian states of kerala
In Kerala Islam came even before north India even much before Muhammad bin Qasim. No muslim Army came here rather historical evidences suggest that Sahaba Jamaat came here. And Some sahaba graves are also reported in kerala Malabar Region. In this Malabar region of Kerala 40-80% population is Muslim in different districts.

Even at the time of  War…(e.g of Iran War)
If you get detail history, their has been full Dawah to king Rustam before battle. There went at least three delegation of Sahaba on different days and gave Dawah of Islam to king Rusatm before
 Battle of Qaadisiyyah. These delegation were 
1.    Hadhrat Nu'maan bin Muqarrin The group included Hadhrat Nu'maan bin Muqarrin,Hadhrat Furaat bin Hayyaan, Hadhrat Handhala bin Rabee Tameemi, Hadhrat Utaarid bin Haajib, Hadhrat Ash'ath bin Qais, Hadhrat Mughiera bin Shu'ba and Hadhrat Amr bin Ma'dikarib  (Ibn Katheer in his AIBidaaya wan Nihaaya (Vol.7 Pg.38).
2.    Hadhrat Mughiera bin Shu'ba
3.    Hadhrat Rib'ee bin Aamir
4.    The next day, the Persians asked for another person and Hadhrat Sa'd sent Hadhrat Hudhayfa bin Mihsin to addressed them in the manner that Hadhrat Rib'ee did.
(Bidaaya wan Nihaaya (Vo1.7 Pg.38). Tabari (Vo1.4 Pg.105) has $so narrated it and mentioned the detailed Da'wah that Hadhrat Zuhra, Hadhrat Mughiera, Hadhrat Rib'ee and Hadhrat Hudhayfa g ave .
Ibn Jareer as quoted in AI Bidaaya wan Nihaaya (Vo!.? Pg.40). Haakim (Vol.3 Pg.451).
(All these are also in Hayatus Sahaba Vol 1 page no 238-241)
With which sword was Islam spread? Even if Muslims had it they could not use it to spread Islam forcefully because the Qur’an says in the following verse:
“Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from error”
[Al-Qur’an 2:256]
But there is Sword of the Wisdom, Intellect love, mercy and Passion for mankind.
These sword that conquers the hearts and minds of people. The Qur’an says in Surah Nahl, chapter 16 verse 125:
“Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious.”
