▪️I want to be a Daa’ee, advise me▪️

Our Shaykh, Muhammad ibn Hizaam -may Allaah preserve him- was asked the following question:

📩 Question:

The questioner says: I want to be a Daa’ee (a caller to good), what do you advise me?

📝 Answer:

We advise you to:

  • seek beneficial knowledge
  • memorise (as much of) the Qur’an and the Sunnah (as you can)
  • attend the circles of knowledge taught by the scholars of Ahlus-Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah

We advise you to call to Allah’s way upon knowledge and insight,

A Daa’ee needs to:

  • have knowledge
  • memorise the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah ﷺ
  • study the correct ‘Aqeedah (Creed) as well as other Islamic sciences.

{قُلۡ هَـٰذِهِۦ سَبِیلِیۤ أَدۡعُوۤا۟ إِلَى ٱللَّهِۚ عَلَىٰ بَصِیرَةٍ أَنَا۠ وَمَنِ ٱتَّبَعَنِیۖ وَسُبۡحَـٰنَ ٱللَّهِ وَمَاۤ أَنَا۠ مِنَ ٱلۡمُشۡرِكِینَ}

“Say, ˹O Prophet,˺ “This is my way. I invite to Allah with insight—I and those who follow me. Glory be to Allah, and I am not one of the polytheists.”
[Surat Yusuf 108]
