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!”

On Where Pianos Roam

O and B are becoming acquainted with a new member of my little family.

I mentioned in a couple of previous posts that I've been reading a lot lately.  Well, there's a reason for this.

 Truthfully, in spite of my love of reading in general, it has taken a distant backseat to all of my musical and artistic pursuits over the last couple of years.  If I could, there would be two or three books that I could be working my way through, but that generally creates more of a hassle in terms of lugging them around and frequently misplacing them (as I am prone to doing more than I should).

Several years ago, Amazon (dot) com, the behemoth online get-whatever-the-heck-you-want website to end all websites, released it's first version of The Kindle.  It was a portable and digital reader that allowed folks to read books and carry them around within a little machine.  It could be held easily in one hand and weighed less than 9 ounces.   I was fairly skeptical when I first heard about it.  I've long loved the smell and feel of books and the physical act of turning a page.  To me, this is like a warm bowl of soup on a cold day or a soft bed to lie in when taking a nap.  Reading an actual book has always felt like home to me.
