Do We Confront the Efforts of the Enemies of Islaam
Words of Advice Regarding Da`wah
© 1998 Al-Hidaayah
The leaders and the scholars should exert efforts to enlighten
and direct the population of Muslims and combat the efforts of the enemies of
Islaam, by retaliating with their own efforts.
The Muslim Ummah is an Ummah that has been entrusted with this
religion and has the responsibility of conveying it. If we are careful to arm
our boys and girls in Islamic societies, with knowledge, understanding and
comprehension of Islamic Jurisprudence and accustom them to apply these things
from a small age, then we will not fear, by the permission of Allaah, the Most
High, as long as they continue to holding onto the deen of Allaah, glorifying
it, following its laws, and fighting that which contradicts it. And indeed their
enemies will fear them.
Allaah, the Most High, says in the Qur’aan,
O you who believe! If you help Allaah, He will help you and
make your foothold firm. [The Qurán 47:7]
If you remain patient and become al-Muttaqoon (pious) not the
least harm will their cunning to do you. Surely Allah surrounds all that they
do. [The Qurán 3:120]
There are many verses in the Qur’aan which convey this
message. The most important factor for us in fighting against the efforts of our
enemies is raising and preparing a generation that knows the reality of Islaam.
This can be achieved through guidance, taking care of the house and family, the
method of educating them, the media and improvement of the society.
In addition to this is the role of steering and guiding which
needs to be taken by the Muslim leadership, persevering in beneficial work and
continually reminding the people that which will benefit them and make the
belief within them grow and flourish.
