Purpose and Implications of Islamic Dawah

BY: MUHAMMAD MUMTAZ ALI The Methods of Dawah, Purpose of Dawah, Islamic Dawah, and Modern Islamic Movements are some of the titles of importance in our time. There are some of the programs and courses related to the above topics which have been designed to teach to the undergraduate students of International Islamic Universities and elsewhere in the Muslim world. These courses are taught in many universities as required courses. Practicing Muslims consider teaching of these courses as important because Dawah work as such is taken as obligatory for all Muslims. What is the purpose of teaching these courses to students? A few objectives of them may be outlined as follows: To study the approaches of Dawah in the Quran and Sunnah; to examine the methodologies of Dawah of the other Prophets [pbut]; to expose students to scientific approaches to Dawah; to enable students to employ the effective methods into their Dawah activities. Some other writers on Islamic Dawah argue that by teaching these courses we intend to prepare preachers so that they can invite people to their religion. Here we need to ask one question: Why do we need to change from one religion to another? Is the change of religion the purpose of Islamic Dawah? What are the implications of Dawah to life and society? We need to answer these questions at a time when the entire world is echoing with the slogans of Islamic terrorism, radicalism, fundamentalism, violence, and Islamophobia and also has suffered from Covid-19 pandemic. Is the Purpose of Dawah Clearly Stated? Dawah is explained in general  in terms of calling or inviting people to religion of Islam. Some other would say that Dawah for them means inviting people to God of a religion or to the Path of God or to one’s Faith. Does it mean that by conducting Dawah we want to invite people to religion of Islam so that we can increase the number of religious followers of Islam? Is Islam a religion? Is it true that the purpose of Dawah is to invite people to the religion or to a new faith or to God and to the Path of God and to make people religious or the followers of God or worshipers of God and virtuous or God-fearing for getting salvation on the Day of Judgment? Is the real purpose of Dawah to invite people to the Path of God in a religious sense? Does it mean that God require people to worship Him or follow His Path for He needs them? Most of the writers on Dawah refer to the very famous ayah of the Quran from Chapter AL-NAHL, “[O Prophet] Call people to the way of your Lord with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and reason with them in the best manner possible” [16: 125]. Hence, they argue we call people to the way of God because it is clearly instructed in the Quran. They further quote another ayah, “I have only created jinns and men that they may worship Me.”[51:56] and contend the purpose of creation of man is to worship or serve God. So we invite people to worship/serve God. Finally, they conclude we have clearly stated the purpose of Islamic Dawah. Some other scholars think that Dawah means to invite people to Islam as the way of life. They say one should not present Islam as a religion confining to a few aspects of personal conduct and faith, rather it should be presented “as a way of life, unifying all the individual, collective and metaphysical problems into a meaningful whole offering a solution in keeping with the common sense and in a natural way.” They further argue: “…if Islam had been presented not as a collection of peculiar beliefs and rituals, but as a perfect way of life, the world would have reacted quite differently” and had accepted Islam. No doubt, whatever is explained so far in books as quoted above seem to be quite true. In spite of this don’t we need to reflect afresh on the purpose of Islamic Dawah?  We are asked in the above-mentioned ayah to use wisdom and reason in the best possible manner. Can we say the above-mentioned style of presentation of purpose of Islamic Dawah be suitable for our time and people? Has it not created some misunderstandings about Dawah and its real purpose? In modern world especially in the West, for example, the purpose of Islamic Dawah is understood in the context of ‘missionary’ zeal and it is equalized with Christian evangelicalism. As a matter of fact many Muslims claim that Islam is a missionary religion. It encourages for preaching and conversion. Some other think about the purpose of Dawah and perceive it in terms of ‘expansion of the Muslim faith’ or ‘propagation of religion’ or ‘missionary activities’ or ‘the conversion of individuals’ or ‘missionary competition.’ Based on these observations, majority of people conclude and argue that there is little question that one of the goals of Dawah is the expansion of the Muslim faith, domination of Islam as a religion or supremacy of Islam or implementation of Islam. The call or the ‘invitation’ to ‘the way of God,’ is taken in a religious sense. This implies that one is invited to abandon whatever belief or faith he/she possesses for the sake of other belief and faith. By any definition, they argue, this would be tantamount to converting people to the Islamic religion. Furthermore, it is also contended that, “it is difficult to know whether conversions were desired for religious reasons or whether they were seen as a means to economic and political ends.” Purpose of Islamic Dawah in a Proper Perspective   To avoid misunderstandings and to make Dawah more relevant and useful to our contemporary world and people, we need to put Dawah and its purpose in a proper perspective. Most of our Muslim scholars have presented the case of Dawah in terms of religion and religious obligation. A very famous scholar, for example, argues that through the methods of Dawah, “one has to inform people about Allah, His Prophet, and their teachings.” Another scholar explains that Islam is “…a missionary religion from its very inception. The Muslims are…missionaries of a world message and representatives of the greatest world movement.” Some other argues the aim of Dawah is, “to make Islam better known…by way of delivering lectures and issuance of publications…to generally acquaint the …public with the realities about the Muslim world.” There are some other scholars and activists who see modern man and his society lack the moral and ethical values, hence, they set the goal of Dawah to call people to faith in God and to work for the establishment of an equitable and just Islamic order. It is also argued by some scholars that Enlightenment rationalism has effectively relegated religious beliefs to private life so it is necessary to bring back religion through Dawah to the mainstream of society. Other than this, most of the Muslim scholars and activists who are involved in the Islamic movements and organizations contended that the purpose of Dawah, which in fact has repeatedly been mentioned, is to Islamize every aspect of life and thus to establish an Islamic order and Islamic state. For them, Islam is an all-embracing Deen [way of life] which regulates every aspect of life. All these arguments and explanations seem, no doubt, to be true but the question here is: is this kind of presentation of objectives of Dawah in line with the Qura’nic objectives and suitable in our contemporary times? We need to know how far this kind of presentation has produced good result. I would contend here that this way of presentation has caused several misunderstandings and sidelined the main purpose of Dawah. We should not intend to defeat practically the purpose of Dawah. My question here is: should we need to continue this way of presentation? I think we should not demonstrate, at any cost, our incapability to make significant contributions to the cause of Dawah. We must avoid a reactionary as well as religious, cultural, and environmental approach. We should exhibit our ability to respond positively to the demands of the Quran for the purpose of Islamic Dawah. I would like to argue here that the presentation of the purpose of Dawah in the Quran is not religious but rather reflects the universal concern about truth and reality and humanity. To avoid misunderstandings and to make Dawah more relevant and useful to our contemporary world and people we need to put Dawah and its purpose in a proper Quranic perspective of universal truth and reality. All most all scholars and writers who refer to the ayah (16: 125), “Call people to the way of your Lord,” have focused more on the Path of God instead of the best possible manner. In this way they have diverted the attention of people from the truth and reality of life to the purpose of religion in a religious sense. Here is exactly the relevance of the above mentioned ayah we need to reflect on it afresh. Look at the ayah, particularly at the second part of the ayah. It is said here: “Call people…with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and reason with them in the best manner possible.” Our Muslim scholars argue for calling people to the way of God one should use wisdom and goodly exhortation. But, here one can ask one simple question. Why can’t we invite people in a simple way to the Path of God? Why did God ask us instead to use wisdom and intelligent ways? Why the use of wisdom is needed? Why it is said that ‘reason with them in the best manner possible.’ And what is that wisdom and best manner? In this ayah we are in fact asked we should be more wise and intelligent enough in inviting people to the Path of God. Why do we invite people to the Path of God? Why do people need to come to the Path of God? And what is that Path of God? Is it a religious path for salvation in the hereafter? Does God need people or do people need the Path of God? Here is the need to use wisdom, good exhortation and present the message in the best possible manner. How to do Dawah in the best possible manner? Before we answer this we need to know: what is that best possible manner? Where is the emphasis in the ayah either on the Path of God or use of wisdom and best possible manner or elsewhere and what is that Path of God? This is the most important point which has been neglected by our writers and activists who are involved in Dawah. Hence, they focus on the Path of God and neglect emphasis on wisdom. They took it in a different way. For them wisdom means knowing some important aspects of people who are called towards Dawah. To conclude we need to revisit the question about the actual purpose of Dawah: Is calling people to the Path of God the sole purpose of Dawah? We need to ponder upon the true purpose of Dawah for which all the Prophets of Islam [pbut] had been sent down along with Revelations [Books of Knowledge and Wisdom], the Quran being the last one. It was to invite people to follow a religious Path of God and become religious, pious, morally sound,  and spiritually elevated. Source: IslamiCity

Somali student talks of her Stonebridge to Cambridge University experience to inspire Black Muslims into education

Nathalie Raffray Miske Ali went from Stonebridge to Cambridge as told to Step Up Hub webinar. Picture: Nathalie Raffray Miske Ali had an overwhelming awakening when she left her home in Stonebridge to study at Cambridge University, but does not regret a minute. The 21-year-old Somali student, took part in Journey to My Success, a webinar from Step Up Hub Presents in celebration of Black History Month during October. The history and politics graduate and aspiring lawyer aimed to inspire any young Black Muslims in attendance to go into further education with an account of her own experience. One of seven siblings living in a three-bedroom home, Miske got a “mix of grades” at GCSEs. She was “pushed to apply” for Oxbridge by a teacher at Greenford High School where she did her A Levels. “I wasn’t planning on going to university, I was going to do an apprenticeship or just work or take a few years out. I didn’t actually know what to do,” she said. “In the Muslim community anyway they say ‘is university even Halal can we even go’ – it was a whole dilemma and I didn’t really have anyone to look up to. Truth be told, I was winging it.” Following an interview at Cambridge University she was made an offer, worked hard to get the grades and was accepted into all-female Newnham College. “I was one of the only Black Muslims at Cambridge and the whole experience was overwhelming and fulfilling,” she added. “I think a lot of people aren’t prepared mentally before they step into university, they just do it because it’s the natural progression of things, but it’s so shocking and so overwhelming.” She successfully secured loans, grants and bursaries and restarted the Somali society. “There was only a handful of us, we came together we made a society, we tried to maintain a sense of identity. It was amazing.” She would like to see the relationship that young Somali men and women have with education changed. “I have a lot of friends my age who didn’t pursue education, had babies really young and are living unfulfilled lives and that is such a shame. “The reason we see this in our communities is we are not taught the power of education, we are not taught how fundamentally life changing it is. It’s not a quick fix.” Source: Brent & Kilburn Times The post Somali student talks of her Stonebridge to Cambridge University experience to inspire Black Muslims into education appeared first on WardheerNews .

Court orders probe into abduction of acquitted Westgate terror suspect

ANNETTE WAMBULWA A Nairobi court has ordered investigations into the disappearance of Liban Omar who was abducted a day after he was acquitted of Westgate terror attack charges. Chief magistrate Francis Andayi acquitted Omar of terror charges on October 7, saying the prosecution did not prove that he was involved in the Westgate terror attack of September 2013. Andayi on Thursday gave the order for the investigations after Omar’s lawyers told the court he was forcibly taken away by unknown gunmen while in the company of his relatives. The magistrate said it was not the first time such an abduction happened. He said the trend of an accused released by a court being abducted has been rampant and requires serious investigations. Defence lawyer Chacha Mwita raised the issue in court on different occasions regarding other accused persons who have also been abducted. “If at all this issue is true, then it should be taken up by the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights who should investigate the issues surrounding their disappearance,” Andayi said. The court urged investigators to take the matter seriously because the trend is dangerous. Andayi also urged other human rights organisations willing to take up the matter to do so and conduct their probes. Meanwhile, Mohammed Abdi and Hussein Mustafa will be sentenced on Friday next week by the same court. The two were Omar’s co-accused and were found guilty. The case was adjourned to next week after the court heard that the pre-sentencing report and the Westgate victims impact statements were not ready Assistant DPP Edwin Okello said only nine victims in the Westgate attack have recorded statements and that they need more time to get more statements. He asked for one week to be able to get more statements from the victims before the court sentences the convicts. Probation officer Peter Macharia said he has interviewed Abdi and Mustafa and their relatives. Macharia said the needed time to interview more victims in the report so that it can help the magistrate in sentencing. The court ordered the press not to cover any of the victim’s impacts statements that have been produced in court. The order was issued after the prosecution asked the court to bar any coverage of the statements by the victims due to the sensitivity of the matter. Andayi warned the media not to publish any of the impacts statements from any of the victims. Source: The Star

Refusing to wear a mask in Ethiopia could cost you two years in jail

By Dawit Endeshaw FILE PHOTO: Ethiopian migrants wait to be served outside the Ethiopian embassy in Beirut, Lebanon July 16, 2020. REUTERS/Mohamed Azakir ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – Ethiopia can jail people for up to two years if they deliberately violate restrictions aimed at curbing the spread of COVID-19, the attorney general’s office said, amid concern that citizens are becoming lax after a state of emergency was lifted. The restrictions prohibit shaking hands, not wearing a mask in a public place, seating more than three people at a table or not keeping “two adult steps” – around six feet – apart . “Now it is as if COVID is no longer there, the public is not taking care,” Health Minister Lia Tadesse tweeted on Thursday. “This will cause a possible increase in the spread of the disease and might be a threat to the nation.” Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populous nation and a regional powerhouse, declared a state of emergency in April to curb the spread of the pandemic. It was lifted in September. The health ministry has recorded 91,118 COVID-19 cases, 1,384 deaths and 44,506 recoveries so far. The disease peaked there toward the end of August, but its difficult to know the true picture because testing has been also scaled back due to limited resources. At least 79 people died of COVID-19 in the past week, the health ministry said, but less than 2% of deaths are formally recorded. The new law permits fines and imprisonment for up to two years for anyone breaks the restrictions, the attorney general’s office said in a statement on its Facebook page on Wednesday. Ethiopia also postponed its regional and parliamentary elections scheduled for August due to the outbreak. They are expected to be held next year. Africa has mostly not seen the huge wave of infections and deaths that have swept across Europe and the Americas. Experts say a much younger population, immediate measures to contain the virus and having a more rural population have all helped keep cases down. But many African leaders are urging vigilance, concerned that any surge in cases could overwhelm rickety public health systems. Source: Reuters
