As Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
Dawah In All Situations
فَخَرَجَ عَلَىٰ قَوْمِهِ مِنَ الْمِحْرَابِ فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَيْهِمْ أَن سَبِّحُوا بُكْرَةً وَعَشِيًّا
“Then he came out to his people from his prayer room and told them
via signs to Glorify Allah in the mornings and afternoons,”
(Surah Maryam 19:11)
When Prophet Zakariya (Peace be upon him) was told that he would have a son named Yahya, he asked Allah for a sign. Allah gave it to him and this sign was that he would not be able to speak for three nights despite having no physical illness. One beautiful aspect of this story is that Prophet Zakariya (peace be upon him) did not use this silence as an excuse to take a break from Dawah for three nights. Instead he did Dawah using a form of gestures with his hands.
This shows us the importance the Prophets attached to the Dawah, they would not allow anything to prevent them from doing it and if an obstacle came up, they would use their creativity to think up an alternative method of Dawah.
So the question we should ask ourselves is what excuse do we have for not doing the Dawah?
