DA’WAT AND TABLIGH MANUAL:Contents:A. Six Points (6-Siffats)B. Some Aayats (Verses) in Qur’an regarding the Importance of Da’wah & TablighC. Tarteeb of Da’wat and TablighA. 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 Himas He stated in Qur’an; “I did not create Jinn and mankind except to worship Me.” He wanted us to be successful in thisdunya 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 Paradiseare the successful ones.” Life in this dunya is very short maybe 60-70 yrs of living, we will die and the life hereafter is theeternal life with beginning and with out ending. To be successful in dunya and akhirat is to bring in ourself the completeDeen (Islamic Religion) and Iman (Belief) according to the ways (sunnah) of Rasulullah (SAW). To facilitate following thecomplete deen is to bring into ourselves certain qualities what we call the Six-Points (6-Siffat) which is common to theSahaba (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]; and6. 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 AllahOBJECTIVE: Our objective is to bring into ourselves the certainty (Yakeen) of the fact that whatever happens, happenswith the Will of Allah. That Allah can do anything without the help of makhluq (creation) and makhluq cannot do anythingwithout Allah’s Will. It is to take out from our hearts the ghairullah (other than Allah) & love of makhluq; and to enter thelove 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 noneworthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad (SAW) is the Messenger of Allah, and his tongue frequently recitesit 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 benefitliving things by the Will of Allah. Water is dependant on the hukm (command) of Allah to quench thirst. Fire can burn onlyby the permission of Allah. Weapons can kill by the leave of Allah. Also, to cure, medication is contingent on Allah’shukm. Allah gives power to whom He wills & take power from whom He wills. Allah is in control of the affairs of theuniverse 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 NabiMohammad 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 beaccording to the sunnah of Rasulullah (SAW). The interpreters of the Quran have interpreted the Ayat “ LiyabluwakumAyyukum Ahsanu Amalaa”; Which means: The A’mal [deed and action] which is done only for Allah’s sake and notaccording 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 Amalis 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 givingeffort 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 SalatMEANING: 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 isWudu”. “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 tohave the reality of Salat.3.a) Third Siffat is ‘Ilmo Wa Dhikr MEANING: The meaning of ‘Ilmo Wa Dhikr is Knowledge & Remembrance of AllahOBJECTIVE: 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 andteaches it”. “The one for whom Allah intends good, He guides him towards the understanding of Deen”. “Whoever treadson 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 theknowledgeable 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 theQur’an & Hadith by attending Ta’lim & reading kitab. To go to the Ulama to learn masail (rulings) & fadhail (virtues) aswell 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 & inevery circumstances.VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Dhikr stated in hadith is that; “When some people who gather and engage inremembering 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 amwith My slave when he remembers Me and till his lips move while remembering Me.” “Is anyone of you unable to earn athousand virtues daily? One of those sitting with him asked (Nabi): How can one earn a thousand virtues in a day? Hereplied: If one glorifies Allah one hundred times (for example, SubhanAllah [Transcendent is Allah] one hundred times), athousand 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 everycircumstances. This dhikr should be done with presence of heart and mind, concentrating on the words being uttered likeTilawat 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-MusliminMEANING: The meaning of Ikram Al-Muslimin is Service & Honoring the fellow MuslimsOBJECTIVE: Our objective is to have love, respect, generosity & patience towards our fellow Muslims. We should givetheir 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 whohas 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) Kindnessto slaves (subordinates). “Whoever humbles himself for the sake of Allah, Allah will exalt him; as a result of that heconsiders himself small, yet in the eyes of people he becomes great. But he who is arrogant, Allah abases him; and hebecomes small in the eyes of people, although he considers himself great to the extent that people consider him to beworse 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 applicationby respecting one’s elders, showing kindness to the young & women, and honoring the ‘Ulema. Whether one is dealingwith 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-NiyyatMEANING: 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 byAllah.VIRTUES: Some of the virtues of Ikhlas stated in hadith is that; “Indeed Allah does not look at your faces andpossessions, but He looks at your hearts and your deeds”. “Verily, Allah does not accept any deed, except that donesincerely 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 intentionbefore, during and after every act. If one finds any motive other than seeking Divine pleasure, one must immediatelyrepent and correct one’s intention. By constantly repenting and removing any ulterior motives, one’s intentions willbecome progressively more sincere, InshaAllah [God-willing].6) Fifth Siffat is Da’wah & TablighMEANING: The meaning is Invitation & ConveyanceOBJECTIVE: Our objective is to spare time in the effort of spreading the Deen (Religion) so that all of humanity will attainIman (Belief) & Hidaya (Guidance) to attain salvation. That mankind be saved from the torment of the Fire, and entersthe 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 oneGod. No more prophets to come for the effort of Deen. We as an Ummah (brotherhood) have been given thisresponsibility as an honor, for Allah the Exalted has called this Ummah: “Kuntum Khaira Ummatin Ukhrijat Linnaas”(thebest 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 likethe one who does it”. “A day spent in the Path of Allah is better than a thousand other days”. “A morning spent in the Pathof 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 theLailatul-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 effortof 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 DailyMaswara, Ta’lim, 3-days Nisab, 2-Jaula, 2 ½ hours daily & on Thursday nights to visit the local Markaz for the Shab-e-Jumu’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 todo during an emergency. Similarly, a person going out for 3 days, 40 days, 4 months, etc. does not become an expert onShariah, but he will learn the basic requirements of Shariah. The more time he gives, the more he will learn and perfecthimself. 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 Quranand Hadith. Up until the recent past, the scholars used to teach in the masjids of their respective towns and villages. Thestudents 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 thesystem 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
