Faculty of Islamic Invitation
Background: In Islamic theology, the purpose of da‘wah is to invite people, Muslims and non-Muslims, to understand the worship of Allah as expressed in the Qur’an and the sunnah of the prophet Muhammad and to inform them about Muhammad.
Da’wah as the “Call towards God” is the means by which Muhammad began spreading the message of the Qur’an to mankind. After Muhammad, his followers and the Ummah (Muslim community) assumed responsibility for it. They convey the message of the Qur’an by providing information on why and how the Qur’an preaches monotheism. Muhammad saw Islam as the true religion and mission of all earlier prophets. He believed that their call had been limited to their own people but that his was universal. His mission as the final prophet was to repeat to the whole world this call and invitation (dawa) to Islam. Muhammad wrote to various non-Muslim rulers, inviting them to convert.
Today the need of invitation towards Allah is even greater. A vast number of humans are not connected to religion and feel that temporary and short life of the planet earth is conclusive and ultimate. Islam on the other side proclaims that life of the earth is a trial and opportunity to earn good credits, which will ultimately earn one the paradise and the favors of Allah. The faculty is established to weed out false and hyperactive preaching and develop standards in inviting non-Muslims and Muslims towards the true submission through Islam, which shall earn them the prosperity during the lifetime and provide them the eternal home in the gardens of Paradise.
