is Dawa FARD (Compulsory) for Muslims ?

Da’wah is a duty

Most Muslims know that Islam is a universal religion, meant for all humankind. Allah (swt) is the Lord of the entire Universe, and Muslims have been entrusted with the duty of conveying His message to all humankind. Alas, most Muslims today have become callous towards this duty! While accepting Islam as the best way of life for ourselves, most of us are unwilling to share this knowledge with those to whom the message has not yet been conveyed.

The Arabic word ‘Da’wah’ means ‘a call’ or ‘an invitation’. In Islamic context, it means to strive for the propagation of Islam.

The Glorious Qur’an says:

“Ah! Who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah? But Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!”

The good old public library

I've always been a fan of the public library. I remember that it began when I was between 10 and 12 years old and we had just moved to a new city. I was starting to get into the Redwall series and after some help from the librarian at our new library with finding the books, I looked at half dozen or so and asked, Is that all of them?

The librarian replied, that it was all they had on the shelves but there might be more in circulation. I was floored, here was a book series that I loved and I could read all of them! Libraries quickly became a fond place in my heart and when we moved to the great plane of corn and beans in Ohio I knew we had to find the nearest library. After reading Mr. Money Mustache preach - to the choir, of course - about the benefits of the public library I wanted to share my praises too, like an evangelical who needs to praise the lord and can no longer remain seated in the pew.

What makes the library so great?
