DA’WAT AND TABLIGH MANUAL: Contents: A. Six Points (6-Siffats) B. Some Aayats (Verses) in Qur’an regarding the Importance of Da’wah & Tabligh C. Tarteeb of Da’wat and Tabligh

A. Six points (6-Siffat): Assalamo ‘Alaikum to all respected elders & brothers in Islam. Alhamdulillah, we thank Allah for the infinite Ni’mah (blessings) He has given to us. He created us as a mankind and a Muslim and among the Ummah of Rasulullah (SAW). He is the Creator, the Sustainer and the King of this world and the Hereafter. Allah created us purposely to worship Him as He stated in Qur’an; “I did not create Jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” He wanted us to be successful in this dunya and hereafter that is why He sent Anbiya (AS) & the last was our Prophet Mohammad (SAW). The real success is what Allah Taalah stated in the Qur’an; “those who were saved from the Hell and will enter Paradise are the successful ones.” Life in this dunya is very short maybe 60-70 yrs of living, we will die and the life hereafter is the eternal life with beginning and with out ending. To be successful in dunya and akhirat is to bring in ourself the complete Deen (Islamic Religion) and Iman (Belief) according to the ways (sunnah) of Rasulullah (SAW). To facilitate following the complete deen is to bring into ourselves certain qualities what we call the Six-Points (6-Siffat) which is common to the Sahaba (RA) that is why they achieved the complete deen & iman. To enumerate the 6-points, they are: 1. The Kalima [Phrase], La ilaha illa’llah, Muhammadur Rasulullah; 2. Salat [the Prayer]; 3. ‘Ilmo wa Dhikr [Knowledge and Remembrance]; 4. Ikram al-Muslim [Honoring Muslims]; 5. Ikhlas [Sincerity]; and 6. Dawah Ilallah or Khoroods Fii Sabilillah [Invitation and Conveyance]. 1.a) The first part is the Kalima [Phrase], La ilaha illa’llah, MEANING: The meaning of the Kalima is: There is no god but Allah OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to bring into ourselves the certainty (Yakeen) of the fact that whatever happens, happens with the Will of Allah. That Allah can do anything without the help of makhluq (creation) and makhluq cannot do anything without Allah’s Will. It is to take out from our hearts the ghairullah (other than Allah) & love of makhluq; and to enter the love of Allah (SWT) as love of Allah will not enter into the hearts full of love of Dunya. VIRTUES: One of the virtues of this Kalima is that it is stated in hadith that, “He who bears witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, and his tongue frequently recites it while his heart is contented with it, the Fire shall not burn him.” EFFORT: Our objective to acquire true Yakeen can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat of the Siffat (Qualities) / Greatness of Allah; to listen to Da’wat of the Siffat / Greatness of Allah & to think/ponder of the Greatness / Siffat of Allah, & to make Duaa to Allah to have it. That, Allah is The Creator, He creates all the creatures. He gives life & causes death. He is the Sustainer, He gives Rizq to all living creatures. He is the King, in this world & the Hereafter. Food can benefit living things by the Will of Allah. Water is dependant on the hukm (command) of Allah to quench thirst. Fire can burn only by the permission of Allah. Weapons can kill by the leave of Allah. Also, to cure, medication is contingent on Allah’s hukm. Allah gives power to whom He wills & take power from whom He wills. Allah is in control of the affairs of the universe and of mankind, and He (Allah) Knows all and Witnesses every secret. Good & bad condition comes from Allah, etc, etc… 1.b) The second part is the kalima; Mohammadur Rasulullah, MEANING: The meaning is; Mohammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah. OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to bring into ourselves the Sunnah (ways) of Rasulullah (SAW). Allah sent Nabi Mohammad as a mercy to mankind. So, our success in this Dunya & Akhirat lies only with following the ways of Rasulullah (SAW). Ways other than the sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW) is Bid’ah & unacceptable to Allah. VIRTUES: One of the virtues is that, our a’mal (deeds and actions) to be acceptable, it is important that they should be according to the sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW). The interpreters of the Quran have interpreted the Ayat “ Liyabluwakum Ayyukum Ahsanu Amalaa”; Which means: The A’mal [deed and action] which is done only for Allah’s sake and not according to the Sunnat of our Prophet (SAW) then that Amal is not acceptable. In the same way if an Amal is done

according to the Sunnat of our Prophet (SAW) but not done for Allah’s sake is also not acceptable. The acceptable Amal is that which is done for Allah’s sake (ikhlas) and according to the sunnat of Rasulullah (SAW). EFFORT: Our objective to bring into ourselves the Sunnat (Way of Life) of Rasulullah (SAW) can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat of the Importance of Sunnat of Rasulullah (SAW), to listen to Da’wat regarding the sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW) & practical application into ourselves the ways of Rasulullah (SAW) as well as make Duaa to Allah to live by it. For example, we should learn & practice how he pray, how he dress, how he eat, how he sleep, his manners, his social & business dealings, etc. 2) Second Siffat is the Salat MEANING: The meaning of Salat is the 5X daily prayers. OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to perform the Salat properly in khushu` (reverence) & humility in its fixed time & in jamaah. And how our body parts obedience to Allah while in Salat will be obedient also outside of Salah while in our house & in work. VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Salat stated in ahadith is that; “The key to Paradise is Salat and the key to Salat is Wudu”. “Salat is the first to be reckoned in judgement day & if the Salat will pass, all other deeds will be easy for us”. “Salat is the pillar of religion, whoever performs it establish the religion & whoever left it meant he overthrow of religion”. Also, “But as for those who abandon Salat shall meet Allah in a state that Allah will be very angry with him”. EFFORT: Our objective to bring into ourselves the hakikat (reality) of Salat can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat of Salat. And performing Salat with concentration, in its fixed time & in jamaah (congregation). Also by Duaa to Allah to have the reality of Salat. 3.a) Third Siffat is ‘Ilmo Wa Dhikr MEANING: The meaning of ‘Ilmo Wa Dhikr is Knowledge & Remembrance of Allah OBJECTIVE: First is ‘Ilmo, and our objective is to have knowledge in religion from the Qur’an & Hadith. To know halal & haram so as to know what to do in every circumstances. VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of ‘Ilmo stated in hadith is that; “The best among you is he who learns the Qur’an and teaches it”. “The one for whom Allah intends good, He guides him towards the understanding of Deen”. “Whoever treads on a path in search of Islamic knowledge, Allah will ease the way to Paradise for him. The Angels will lower their wings, pleased with this seeker of knowledge, and everyone in the heavens and on earth will ask forgiveness for the knowledgeable person, even the fish in the deepest of waters will ask for his forgiveness." EFFORT: Our objective to have the ‘Ilm can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat of ‘Ilm . To spare time to study the Qur’an & Hadith by attending Ta’lim & reading kitab. To go to the Ulama to learn masail (rulings) & fadhail (virtues) as well as to make Duaa from Allah to have beneficial ‘Ilm in religion. OBJECTIVE: The second is Dhikr, and our objective is to have awareness & remembrance of Allah in 24 hours & in every circumstances. VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Dhikr stated in hadith is that; “When some people who gather and engage in remembering Allah ‘Azza wa Jall, not intending anything except Allah’s pleasure, an angel calls them from the heavens: Get up duly forgiven! As indeed your sins have been replaced with virtues”. “Allah the Almighty and Majestic says: I am with My slave when he remembers Me and till his lips move while remembering Me.” “Is anyone of you unable to earn a thousand virtues daily? One of those sitting with him asked (Nabi): How can one earn a thousand virtues in a day? He replied: If one glorifies Allah one hundred times (for example, SubhanAllah [Transcendent is Allah] one hundred times), a thousand virtues are recorded for him and a thousand sins are removed from him”. EFFORT: Our objective can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat of Dhikr & to engage in constant Dhikr of Allah in every circumstances. This dhikr should be done with presence of heart and mind, concentrating on the words being uttered like Tilawat Qur’an, repetition of “Laa Ilaaha Illallah”, Ashtaghfirullah”, “Allahummasalli ‘Ala Nabiyyina Mohammad (SAW)” 100x each AM & PM & other adhkar when eating, sleeping, etc. 4) Fourth Siffat is Ikram Al-Muslimin MEANING: The meaning of Ikram Al-Muslimin is Service & Honoring the fellow Muslims OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to have love, respect, generosity & patience towards our fellow Muslims. We should give their rights & forego our rights to them. VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Ikram stated in hadith is that; “"When a Mu'min meets another Mu'min, greets him, takes his hand and shakes it, their sins are shed off just as leaves are shed off a tree”. “No one will attain true Iman (faith) until he wish for his brother muslim what he wish for himself”. “Indeed, the most perfect believer in faith is one who has the best manners and is the kindest to his family; and the best of you are those who are best to their wives”. “Nothing will weigh more heavily in the Balance of the believing slave on the Day of Resurrection than a good attitude

towards others.” “.Anyone with these three qualities shall be under the shade of Allah’s Mercy (on the Day of Resurrection) and will be admitted into Paradise: 1) Courtesy towards the weak, 2) Compassion to parents 3) Kindness to slaves (subordinates). “Whoever humbles himself for the sake of Allah, Allah will exalt him; as a result of that he considers himself small, yet in the eyes of people he becomes great. But he who is arrogant, Allah abases him; and he becomes small in the eyes of people, although he considers himself great to the extent that people consider him to be worse than a dog or a pig”. EFFORT: Our objective to achieve the quality of Ikram is to give effort in Da’wat of Ikram & through practical application by respecting one’s elders, showing kindness to the young & women, and honoring the ‘Ulema. Whether one is dealing with one’s spouse, family, relatives, friends or acquaintances, to always put the other ahead of oneself. To, at all times, be ready to sacrifice one’s own desires for another. 5) Fifth Siffat is Ikhlas An-Niyyat MEANING: The meaning of Ikhlas An-Niyyat is Sincerity of Intention. OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to have sincerity of our a’mal that is for the pleasure of Allah alone so as to be accepted by Allah. VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Ikhlas stated in hadith is that; “Indeed Allah does not look at your faces and possessions, but He looks at your hearts and your deeds”. “Verily, Allah does not accept any deed, except that done sincerely for Him and to obtain His pleasure”. EFFORT: Our objective to achieve the Ikhlas is to give effort in Da’wat of Ikhlas & application by checking one’s intention before, during and after every act. If one finds any motive other than seeking Divine pleasure, one must immediately repent and correct one’s intention. By constantly repenting and removing any ulterior motives, one’s intentions will become progressively more sincere, InshaAllah [God-willing]. 6) Fifth Siffat is Da’wah & Tabligh MEANING: The meaning is Invitation & Conveyance OBJECTIVE: Our objective is to spare time in the effort of spreading the Deen (Religion) so that all of humanity will attain Iman (Belief) & Hidaya (Guidance) to attain salvation. That mankind be saved from the torment of the Fire, and enters the Garden (Paradise) of Allah. All of the Prophets (upon them be peace) were given a task to invite humanity to their Creator that is why Allah love them. Each prophet was sent to a specific people, calling them to the worship of the one God. No more prophets to come for the effort of Deen. We as an Ummah (brotherhood) have been given this responsibility as an honor, for Allah the Exalted has called this Ummah: “Kuntum Khaira Ummatin Ukhrijat Linnaas”(the best people that hath been brought forth). VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Da’wah & Tabligh stated in hadith is that; “Whoever guides to something good is like the one who does it”. “A day spent in the Path of Allah is better than a thousand other days”. “A morning spent in the Path of Allah is better than the world and all that it contains”. “When the dust of the Path of Allah enters the body of a Muslim, Allah prohibits Hellfire on him”. “Your striving in the Path of Allah for a short while, is far better than your good deeds of the whole life staying with your family”. “To be in the Path of Allah, for a short while, is better than worshipping on the Lailatul-Qadr in from of Hajar al-Aswad (That is equivalent to worship of more than 1000 nights x 100,000x)”. EFFORT: Our objective to have Iman & Hidayat can be achieved by giving effort in Da’wat by spending time in the effort of spreading the Deen of Allah (SWT). We should fix time & try our best to go in Khoroj Fi Sabilillah (Going in the Path of Allah) for 4-months in one’s lifetime, 40-days in a year, 3-days every month & the 5-a’mals in our Mahala. The Daily Maswara, Ta’lim, 3-days Nisab, 2-Jaula, 2 ½ hours daily & on Thursday nights to visit the local Markaz for the Shab-eJumu’ah [Eve of Friday] gathering (I’tikaf). The number of days is not compulsory, it is only recommended just as it is recommended that a person studying first aid, for example, serves one month as practicals. While he will not be an expert in medicine, he will know the basic things to do during an emergency. Similarly, a person going out for 3 days, 40 days, 4 months, etc. does not become an expert on Shariah, but he will learn the basic requirements of Shariah. The more time he gives, the more he will learn and perfect himself. The time frame is not a criteria according to Shariah. There are some commandments in Shari’ah in which the method is not stipulated. For example, it is a commandment of Shariah to acquire knowledge, but the manner in which the Madrasas are established today, is not proven through Quran and Hadith. Up until the recent past, the scholars used to teach in the masjids of their respective towns and villages. The students had to go to different scholars to learn the different sciences. No arrangements of food or boarding were made. However, the zeal for knowledge had decreased as time went by, and the scholars felt it necessary to establish the system of Darul Ulooms as is established today. Nobody regards such a system to be bid’ah. Similarly, Shariah has commanded us to do the work of da’wah & tableegh. This work used to be done on an individual

basis. The learned people used to preach the others and prevent them from all vices. As time went on, vice started prevailing, and people had stopped doing the work on an individual basis; therefore, a collective effort had to take place, and rules had to be set up for the work to carry on in order. The overwhelming success of the Jamaat Tabligh is mainly because of the manifestation of the Six Points which involves the purification of the Naffs (desire) and the entity of Tawheed (Oneness of Allah) & adhering to the Sunnah (Ways)of Nabi Mohammad (SAW). A few fundamental points have to be borne in mind: a).Practically every Surah of the Qur'aan mentions Jihaad in the way of Allaah. When academics discuss the meaning of Jihaad, one understands it to express many aspects relating to the upkeep of Deen. It will mean, to exert oneself for Deen, to strive for the protection of Deen, to endeavour for the defence of Deen, to spread the Deen, to preach and propagate the Deen, to teach all branches of Deen, to engage in physical contact in order to upkeep, maintain, defend, protect, spread and propagate the Kalimah of Tauheed of Islaam. b.) Da'wah (inviting) and Tabligh (propagating) of Deen is Jihaad (striving in the Deen). Jihaad leads eventually to “Qitaal” martyrdom or killing for the pleasure of Allaah without exceeding the stipulated boundaries of the Shariah. c.) To learn about Deen is Fardh (obligatory). To preach and propagate Deen is also Fardh (obligatory). To protect and defend Deen can be done in various ways and the Tabligh Jamaat is one of the most excellent, which has been proven by experience to protect the Deen. We observe that the Tabligh Jamaat is like a mobile Madrassah and is extremely effective for the masses and professionals. It is that international movement that has reformed the lives of not hundreds, but thousands. Every day so many people enter the Tabligh Jamaat and reform themselves to become good members of society when they have formerly been. And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

B. Some Aayats (Verses) in Qur’an regarding the Importance of Da’wah & Tabligh: Allah the Exalted has said: Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good , enjoining Al-Ma˜roof (good) and forbidding AlMunkar (evil). And it is they who are the successful ( Aal ˜Imraan 3:104) You (True Believers) are the Best of People (Khaira Ummat) ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma’ruf (Good) and forbid Al-Munkar (Bad) and you believe in Allah. (Aal-Imraan 3:110) Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way… (Qur’an, 16:125); Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says, ‘I am of those who bow in Islam’ (Qur’an, 41:33); Say thou: "This is my way: I do invite unto Allah, - on evidence clear as the seeing with one's eyes, - I and whoever follows me… (Qur’an, 12:108); And remind for reminding truly benefits believers. (Qur’an, 51:55); And those who believed and emigrated and strove for the way of God, and those who provided refuge and assisted those are the true believers, and for them is forgiveness and a generous provision. (Qur’an, 8:74); Those who believe, and have emigrated, and have struggled in the way of God with their possessions and their lives are greater in degree with God; and those, they are the triumphant. Their Lord gives them good tidings of mercy from Him and beatitude; for them shall be gardens wherein is enduring bliss, therein they shall abide forever. Surely with God is a tremendous reward. (Qur’an, 9:20-22); But as for those who struggle for Our sake, We shall assuredly guide them in Our ways, and truly God is with the virtuous. (Qur’an, 29:69); The [true] believers are only those who believe in God and His Messenger, and then have not doubted, and who strive with their wealth and their souls for the cause of God. It is they who are sincere. (Qur’an, 49:15); O you who believe, shall I show you a commerce that will deliver you from a painful chastisement? You should believe in God and His Messenger and struggle for the cause of God with your possessions and your lives. That is better for you, should you know. He will [then] forgive you your sins and admit you into gardens underneath which rivers flow and pleasant dwellings in the Gardens of Eden. That is the supreme triumph. (Qur’an, 61:10-12). C. Tarteeb (Guidelines) of Da’wat & Tabligh: Some of the Greatness of Allah (SAW): 1) Allah created Adam (Alayhis salaam) without a father or a mother.

After all this Allah Ta'ala made him a ruler. 6) Allah Ta'ala provided Hazrat Maryam with provisions in a locked room. 7) Allah Ta'ala made the pebble in the hand of Abu Jahl recite the Kalimah. 8) Allah made a small dead animal to bear witness on Him and His Messenger in the presence of an unbeliever. 9) Through the power of Allah a breast feeding child gave evidence of the innocence of Hazrat Maryam. 10) Hazrat Zakariyya (Alayhis salaam) on reaching old age was given the news of being bestowed with a son. 11) Allah made the fire into a garden for Ibrahim (Alayhis salaam). 12) Allah sustained Musa (Alayhis salaam) in the house of the biggest enemy. 13) Allah sustained the family of Ibrahim (Alayhis salaam) in an open desert. 14) Allah Ta'ala provided us the Zamzam (water) from the rubbing of the heels of Ismail (Alayhis salaam).

On Wednesday light (Noor) was created. On Thursday the animals were spread throughout the Earth. On Friday Allah created Adam (Alayhis salaam). Amount of Angels 1) There is a river in Jannat in which Hazrat Jibraeel (Alayhis salaam) enters. When he comes out of this river, he shakes his entire body drying himself. From every drop of water 1 angel is born. 2) Hazrat Ibn Abbas Radhiallaho anho relates the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) saying, one of the angels of Allah if told to swallow the seven heavens and the seven earth's in one morsel, he has the ability to do so. 3) In the seventh heaven exists the Qiblah for the angels. Everyday 70,000 angels are present making Tawaf and due to the amount of angels they are unable to have a second opportunity for Tawaf till the day of Judgement. Virtues of this Ummah 1) Hazrat Adam (Alayhis salaam) said I made Taubah which was only accepted in Makkah. But if this Ummah makes Taubah at any place of the Earth it will be accepted. 2) Hazrat Adam (Alayhis salaam) was made to perceive nakedness for his mistake but if this Ummah makes mistakes openly, Allah Ta'ala will shelter it. 3) Adam's (Alayhis salaam) wife was separated from him because of his mistake, but in spite of the mistakes of this Ummah, their wives will not be separated from them. 4) Adam (Alayhis salaam) was in Jannah and due to his mistake, he was sent out, but this Ummah being out of Jannah will enter in to it by making Taubah over their sin. 490 Million virtues of Da’wat & Tabligh a) Spending 1 in the path of Allah is equivalent to spending 700,000. b) Performing one Salat in the path of Allah is equivalent to 490,000,000 (490 million) Salat. Hazrat Imran Ibn Hussain Radhiallaho anho relates the Prophet (Sallallaho alaihe wasallam) saying, the person who remains at home and spends his wealth in the path of Allah, for every Dirham he is rewarded with 700 Dirhams. The person who goes in the path of Allah and spends his wealth in the path of Allah, for every Dirham he is rewarded 700,000 Dirhams. Suhail Ibn Muaz Radhiallaho anho relates the Prophet (SAW) said: "Certainly Salat, Saum and Zikr in the Path of Allah reaches up to 700 times. (Sunan Abu Dawud) Spending in the path of Allah is equivalent to 700,000. Hence, your Badni Qurbani (physical sacrifice) added to your Mali Ajar (spending) is equivalent to 700,000 x 700 = 490,000,000 (490 million).

First and most important Usool (principal) in Tableegh is love and respect for each other as stated in the hadith; Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (RA) narrates that the Rasulullah (SAW) looked at the Ka’ba and said: “La ilaha illa’llah, how pure you are, and how sweet your fragrance, and how great your honor! However the honor of a Mu’min [believer] is greater than yours. Indeed, Allah (SWT) has made you respectable; (likewise) the wealth, the blood, and the honor of a Mu’min has been made respectable; and Allah has forbidden us to suspect him of wrongdoing”. “O Muslims you are the best of all Nations. In the knowledge of Allah this was destined for you from eternity. This knowledge had also been conveyed to some of the previous Prophets. Just as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) is the last, and most distinguished of all Prophets, so also his Ummah will be the most distinguished Ummah, surpassing all other Umam (followers of other Prophets) because of its having the most honored of all Prophets, and because of being given an everlasting and most perfect Shari’a (Islamic Law) never to be abrogated. All doors of knowledge and wisdom will be opened upon it. By its struggle and sacrifice all branches of Iman, righteous actions and piety will be brought to life. This Ummah will not be limited to any particular tribe, nation, country or continent but its field of action will encompass the whole world and all aspects of human life. As though, its very existence will be for the benefit of others and as far as is humanly possible to bring the whole of mankind to the doors of Paradise.”

May Allaah accept the efforts and sacrifices of all those doing any form of good work in whichever permissible way and wherever they may be. May Allah accept us in the noble work of Nabi in propagating the Deen & raise us in Akhirat among those Da’ee Ilallah. May Allah make easy for us to spend time & be steadfast. Aameen. Please include me in your prayers.
