The word Da`wah generally means “Calling people towards Allah and His instructions”. The practitioner of preaching is known as Da`i. This act is commonly thought of being limited to religious matters only like Oneness of God, reading the Holy Quran in Arabic, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) being the last Prophet, believing in prophets and Day of Judgment, offering Salah etc. rather it is the complete package of advocating in favor of what is good. It includes both spiritual and secular Islamic instructions for sake of betterment of common people. It could be of two types: first, it can be the act of proselytizing, where the preacher tries to convey its message of religious convictions to non-Muslims through convincing dialogue. Second, it can be for the purpose of reminding the present Muslim Ummah about their duties and responsibilities as per commands of Quran and Prophet`s (PBUH) Sunnah. In any case, a Da`i (Preacher) must have sincerity, complete knowledge and wisdom, patience, constancy, modesty, empathy and above all it must be a great devotee of advocated teachings. Bringing people towards morality is considered as one of the utmost virtues in Islam, which is the reason Prophets were sent down on earth By the Almighty one after the other for leading people towards morality. But it is not only limited to them, rather it is a continuous process, which the followers of the religion of Islam have to take up seriously.
