DAWAH

Allah Ta'ala says in the Noble Qur'an, 'You are the best of nations sent to man. You command good and forbid evil and you believe in Allah'. (Aali Imraan).

Allah Ta'ala states that one reason for this Ummah being titled as the best of Ummats, is the practise of commanding good and preventing evil'.

Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) states, 'Whosoever from among you witnesses evil, he should change it with his hands. And if he is unable to do so then he should change it with his tongue. And if he is unable to do so with his tongue, then he should at least consider it to be wrong. And this is the weakest stage of Imaan. (Mishkaat)

Hadhrat Nu'maan bin Basheer (Radhiallaahu Anhu) says that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) gave an example of people sailing on a boat having an upper deck and a lower deck. The people from the lower deck require water and request water from the people of the upper deck. The people from the upper deck refuse water so the people from the lower deck decide to make a hole on the floor of the ship and get water from the sea. Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'If the people from the upper deck don't stop the people at the bottom from making a hole, the ship will sink and all the people travelling will drown. (Mishkaat vol. 2 p. 436)

Similarly, if people do not prohibit evil and sin in the society, the entire society - innocent and evil - will equally suffer.

Hadhrat Abu Hurayra (Radhiallaahu Anhu) states that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) said, 'Command good and prohibit evil or else Allah will send such a punishment that will destroy everyone'. (Ibid).

The above quotations of the Qur'an and Ahaadith of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) are clear that commanding good and prohibiting evil is an emphasised injunction of Allah and His Rasul. Every person must carry out this injunction. All the Prophets (Alayhimus salaam) followed the footsteps of their respective Prophets and after the demise of their Prophet, they carried out the same mission. The Sahaaba of Rasulullah (Radhiallaahu Anhum) spent their entire lives in commanding good and prohibiting evil. Since there is no Prophet to come, every Ummat of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) is the deputy of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and he has to carry on the mission of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam). The people of Tabligh Jamaat sacrifice their time and wealth and comforts to undergo difficulty and hardships to go in the path of Allah - to carry out this Sunnah of the Prophets (Alayhimus salaam) - commanding good and prohibiting evil. One should join them as much as possible.
