The evidence and importance of da'wah to muslims

Verses from the holy quran

وَلاَ تُنكِحُواْ الْمُشِرِكِينَ حَتَّى يُؤْمِنُواْ وَلَعَبْدٌ مُّؤْمِنٌ خَيْرٌ مِّن مُّشْرِكٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ وَاللّهُ يَدْعُوَ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ 221

1.Those people (disbelievers) are calling towards the hellfire, whilst Allah calls towards paradise and forgiveness with his command (al-baqarah verse 221)


يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ اسْتَجِيبُواْ لِلّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُم لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ 24


2.Oh people who believe accept the da’wah of Allah and his prophet, when they call you to such a thing wherein your life lies (al-anfaal verse 24)


هَاأَنتُمْ هَؤُلَاء تُدْعَوْنَ لِتُنفِقُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَمِنكُم مَّن يَبْخَلُ وَمَن يَبْخَلْ فَإِنَّمَا يَبْخَلُ عَن نَّفْسِهِ وَاللَّهُ الْغَنِيُّ وَأَنتُمُ الْفُقَرَاء وَإِن تَتَوَلَّوْا يَسْتَبْدِلْ قَوْمًا غَيْرَكُمْ ثُمَّ لَا يَكُونُوا أَمْثَالَكُمْ 38

3. Listen! you are those people who are called towards spending in the path of Allah

Those verses of the holy quran wherein the word da’wah is used commonly, in its general term Muslims will be included because according to Arabic eloquence when the maful bihi is dropped off it generalises the sentence. This has been mentioned in the books of Arabic eloquence.


Many verses of the holy quran although the word da’wah has not been used it appears that daw’ah is meant.

Hadhrat Molana Thanwi (RH) writes:
Hadhrat Yush’a (peace be upon him) was sent to the Bani Israa’eel who were already believers and remained believers even after his demise. (bayaanul-quran page 459 vol 3)
