The Lofty Status of Calling to Allah and the Fundamental Foundations of Giving Da’wah to The Disbelievers by Shaykh Abdur Razzaq bin Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbad

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Ash-Sheikh Abdur Razzaq bin Abdul Muhsin Al-Abbad mentioned in the book “The Lofty Status of Calling to Allah and the Fundamental Foundations of giving Da’wah to the disbelievers“:

“Indeed the most complete and exemplary way of calling the disbelievers to Al-Islaam is the way exhibited in Al-Quran Al-Kareem, with its decisive proofs and evidences and its clear guidance. When we ponder over the various styles of calling the disbelievers to Al-Islaam that Allah mentions in the Quran, we find these styles of da’wah are concentrated in the following points:

Point 1: Clarifying the beautiful characteristics of Al-Islaam, its completeness, and noble qualities in terms of its beliefs, acts of worship, and manners.

The Noble Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz said: “The Muslims today, rather the entire world is in severe need of a clarification of Allah’s religion, and they are in need of being shown its beautiful characteristics, and a clarification of the reality of the religion of Al-Islaam. By Allah, if the people knew of Islaam’s noble qualities and characteristics, they would enter into Al-Islaam in crowds.”

Point 2: Mentioning the proofs that indicate the truthfulness of the message of Muhammad, sallahu alahi wa salaam, in order for the one who seeks truth and fairness to be guided aright, and so that the proof can be established upon the one who stubbornly refuses to accept the truth.

Point 3: Refuting the doubts of the disbelievers surrounding the religion, and nullifying what they use as a proof or as a tool of debate while arguing with the muslims. The Quran has indicated the clearest proofs and the strongest and most sufficient of evidences to establish the truth and diminish falsehood.

Point 4: Reminding the Kufaar about the punishment of the previous nations, and how Allah destroyed those nations that trangressed, with different types of punishments.

Point 5: Warning from the punishment of the dunya and the punishment of the hereafter, which has been prepared for the disbelievers.

Point 6: Combining betweeen At-Targeeb and At-Tarheeb, by mentioning the reward of those who believe, such as continuous
blessings in this life and in the hereafter, and by mentioning the consequences of remaining upon disbelief, in terms of great evil in this life and in the hereafter……”

Point 7: Clarifying what is in their religion, in terms of evil, corruption, and contradiction…”

Point 8: Warning from obeying the heads of evil and the callers to the Hell-Fire.

Point 9: Reminding the disbelievers about the blessings of Allah, which are constant, and clarifying that Allah is the only creator, and the only one who bestows blessings upon the creation, blessings we see and don’t see. Therefore the one who is described by such charactestics is the only one who deserves to be worshipped alone, and not other than him.

Point 10: Comparing the beautiful and complete characterstics of Al-Islaam with the evil, ignorance, and contradiction of other religions.

Point 11: Debating the disbeliever with knowledge and clear proofs and evidences. This has two benefits:

  • First Benefit: To refute the falsehood, so they can return to the truth.
  • Second Benefit: To lighten the evil and transgression so that it’ll become clear to the people that which is false from that which is truth.

Point 12: Removing the incorrect understandings the disbelievers have about Al-Islaam, and the distorted views they possess. Because from among the disbelievers are those who perhaps the religion reached them in a distorted manner, due to the corruption of some deviant people from different misguided groups that ascribe themselves to Al-Islaam, or maybe because of the ignorance of those conveying the religion. Consequently the people being called don’t see the essence, beauty, completeness and reality of Al-Islaam……”
