Minimum Knowledge for Dawah ? Dawah at own place locality and outside

Response to an Opinion by a Brother (Recieved through mail)
We should do Dawah at home and locality, once we feel that I have becomes 100% perfect then should move outside?

Dear brother,
I like to request your that first one has to study sunnah method of working for deen and then he 
has to start it. It is clear from Muhammed  (SAW) that he worked for 10 consecutive years in and around Makkah  such that the huzzat is completed on and they boycotted muslims completely then He (SAW) migrated to madinah. so first let us work for deen in and around  city or village where one live till the goal is reached. If any one feels that he can work better other than his place of residence then he has to go there and work there till the either the goal of prophet is reached or it is difficult to
stay there because of the reasons shown by Muhammed (SAW).In this we muslims today are doing mistakes because of which our efforts are not giving the result which Allah and his prophet set for peace and prospertiy of the world.

Praise be to Allah.
Wailaikum Assalam Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatuhu,

1. Alhamdulillah it is a bounty of Allah on you that he gave you taufeeq to think about deen and its dawah. May Allah accept and increase your fikr for deen. 

2. Your  letter is a constructive advice that should always be welcomed. Jazakallah
I am just reminding you as a brother in Islam, because among the muslims who have concern for deen or dawat,A good number is wasting their intellect, time and knowledge for criticising others and sometime even with baseless allegation. So It is my humble request that please dont waste your fikr into criticizing other muslims. 

The brother opinion has three issues.
A. Is there any minimum knowledge/ criteria for start of Dawah by any person.

B General issue that whether a daee should wait for perfection of himself or completion of work at his locality before going to work at other places.
C. A particular Reference to Methodology of Tablighi Jamaat for Khurooj and Muqami Aamall
Is there any minimum knowledge/ criteria for start of Dawah by any person?


Say (0 Muhammad ): This is my way; I invite towards Allah,
with clear evidence and strong belief, I and whosoever follows me. (12:108). 

Abdullah ibne-Amr  narrates that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: Convey from me even if it be a single verse. (Bukhari).

Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar Asqalani AS Shafaee Rahimullah the authorative commentator of Bukhari Shareef said in Fath al-Baari: He said in the hadeeth, “even if it is one verse” so that everyone who heard him would hasten to convey whatever he heard of the verses, even if it was very little, so that in this manner everything that he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) brought would be conveyed. "

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said: 1.If a person understands what he is calling people to, it makes no difference whether he is a great and prominent scholar or a seeker of knowledge who is serious in his pursuit thereof, or a regular person who has certain knowledge of the issue in question.

The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Convey from me, even if it is one verse,” and he did not stipulate that the daa’iyah (caller) should have reached a high level of knowledge, 
B General issue that whether a daee should wait for perfection of himself or completion of work at his locality before going to work at other places.

Your example of giving dawah for 10 years in Makkah and deriving rule from it to do work at home, may or may not be the correct derivation (Allah knows the best).I am not negating your point, but not agrred because of following reasons.
A. Prophet tried his best to reach the people of other places at the time of Hajj and other occasions before Hijrat also.
B. He went to Taif before Hijrat.
C. He gave dawah to whole makkah even his family was full of nonbeliever like abu Jehal.
D. Among present day scholars are also going to other places even when the work of dawah is not final in their own countries. For example Scholars from Europe and America are coming to India pakistan and vice versa.

It is a matter in which difference of opinion is possible. It is an issue of Ijtahad and we should respect others opinion.

C. A particular Reference to Methodology of Tablighi Jamaat for Khurooj and Muqami Aamall

Tablighi jamaat has a well established mechanism to consider your concern of working in family, friends, own locallity as priority basis. For better understanding it is requested that you go in the path of allah to see the work from close (Allah knows the best)

Tablighi Jamaat has Dual aspect of Dawah effort 

1.Going in path of Allah 
(In a year only for 40 days Rest 325 days at own place)
2. Muqami Amaal

When you are at home

Five Amaal of Masiidwar Jamat

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)

The Work of Dawah and Tabligh has two facets

1.Going in the path of Allah for some days in Jamaat
2.Doing the Amaal and effort while being at home.

1.Going in path of Allah 
To learn deen, to learn practically Hikmat and Wisdom of Dawah and Tabligh, To learn basic knowledge. A person goes for learning and reinforcing it. Jamaat is on the basis of co-operating each other on Neki and Taqwa. They will learn each other not only knowledge............

But the quality of patience, humbleness, servicing others khidmat and similar other spritual quality

2. Muqami Amaal (Work of Dawah being at home)

After coming from path of Allah he has to dawah in his family,relatives,neighbours and his locality with Masjidwar Jamaat through (Daily meeting) Mulaqat,mashwara,and gusht of Five Amaal.

This is a continuous Process otherwise our JAZBAT will become cold. So Dawat should be Parts and Parcel of our life.

 Maulana Inaamul Hasan Made a formal Tarteeb of Muqami Kam (effort of deen while being at home) and it hlped the brothers to strengthen the qualities and gain achieved in the path of Allah. And established strong connection between Daee and the his neihbour and surrounding.

A brief description of Five Amaal 

1.    1. Daily Dawah ( Mulaqat)  
Make efforts to visit each and every house of the locality to revive the amal of Da'wah. Also spend time in Da'wah of Iman, halqas of Taleem of fazael, sending and receiving of jamats to and from inside and abroad, Elm and Zikr, hospitality of incoming guests and their Taleem and tarbiah.
 Brothers should eat and sleep at their houses. 2.5 hours are the minimum. Encourage brothers to give more time so that the masjid is populated by the amals of Masjide Nabawi throughout 24 hours. Ifa brother gives less than 2.5 hours, do not look down on them; appreciate whatever time they give. Specially for student Tarteeb is relaxed and they are encouraged to do even one Mulaqat at some institution it is tarteeb of only 10 minute for one Mulaqat. 10 minutes is very small but continuity/Istaqamat is very important and has long effect.

2. Daily Mashwara: 
Brothers should sit daily for mashwara and fikr for a short time after any salat to their convenience. They should review the efforts made on the earlier day and do Mashwara for the efforts to be made on that day to revive 100% namazi, recitation, Zikr, Du'a, Ibadath, husne akhlak/good manners and full Deen in the entire world.

    3. Daily Taleem in Masjid and Home: 
In addition to Taleem in the masjid, efforts should bernade to conduct a Taleem in every house to increase the eagerness and urge of doing amal among the family, and to encourage the ladies to spend their 24 hour daily life as per Deen by inquiring from ulema through their men.
Taleem will encourage to be on complete deen, and increase the Emaan and the Promises of Allah.

4.Two Joulas (General Gusht) every week:

One for your mosque,
 other for nearby locality mosque
 Joula is general Mulaqat with all muslims irrespective of his status while going to their home/ Shops. Do it with Tawazo and Considering yourself as the most needy of Hidayat.
Make an effort to prepare cash jamats through every Joula. Through the second Joula, efforts should be made to develop work in every masjid of the city by forming masjidwar jamat

5.    Monthly Days: 
Every worker should spend 3 days regularly by taking new brothers of his locality along with him. Through these 3 day jamats, efforts should be made to establish masjidwar jamats at all Masjids of the vicinity and for the progress of work in the vicinity.

May Allah give us taufeeq to be the part of effort of Dawt and Tabligh

Jazakallah o Khair
