CHAPTER ONE

1.0   INTRODUCTION

All praise is due to Allah (S.W.T), whom we ask for help and from whom we seek forgiveness. We seek refuge with Allah from the evils withinourselves and the evils of our actions. He who Allah guides has no one who can lead him astray and He whom He led astray has no one to guide him. Peace and blessings of Allah be upon His noblest servant, His Messengers and prophet (Muhammad) and his companions, his family and those that follow their footsteps until the Day of Judgment.

The institution of Da'awah that is calling people to the way of Allah (S.W.T) and His prophets is an orthodox tradition which traces its origin from the previous Prophets of Allah (S.W.T) before Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W). Allah said in the glorious Qur'an

“Indeed, We have revealed to you, (o Muhammad), as We revealed to Noah and Prophets after him. And We revealed to Ibrahim, Isma'il, Ishaq, Yaqub, the descendants, Isah, Ayub, Yunus, Harun and Suleiman, and to Dawud We gave the Zabur (of psalms)"1

The above verse of the glorious Qur'an showed clearly all Prophets served the same purpose of Da'awah with the seal of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).

A Da'awah means inviting other people to enter in to the religion of Allah for Allah created the creations for His worship, in the glorious Qur'an Allah said,

"And I did not create the Jinn and mankind except to worship me".2

Therefore, from the above mentioned verse of the glorious Qur'an, it is clearly understood that Allah (S.W.T) created both jinn and mankind and command them to worship none but

Him alone, So for that reason, the cardinal objective of Da'awah is to educate the collective and individual people to know the best of worshiping Allah alone.

Da'awahi.e (calling people to the commandment of Allah)is an event carried out by all the MuslimUmmah by sending the different message at different times through His selected men (messengers) from generation to generation to deliver the message of Islam. Allah the Most High stated in the glorious Qur'an

how was the end of the deniers."3 “and We certainly sent in to every nation a Messenger, (saying), worship Allah and avoid taught, and among them were those whom Allah guide and among them upon whom error was (deservedly) decreed. so proceed (i e travel) through the earth and observe

Even though the sings Allah were everywherein nature and in man's own conscience. In addition, Allah (S.W.T) Has sent human messengers to every people to call their attention to the good and return them from evil so they cannot pretend that Allah Has abandon them or that He does not care what they do, therefore, this divine grace always invite their wills to choose right. Therefore Islam can only propagate by using Da'awah (striving)to act according to the commandment of Allah (S.W.T) and His Messenger therein .

Da'awah means communicating Allah’s religion to entire people of the world; it must be in different form which vary from place to another. It is sometimes done by the use of tongue where one expresses Islamic etiquette verbally. Sometimes the application of Da'awah can be observed by good virtue. This is a situation where one can explain the teaching of Islam through his actions or behaviors, it may also done personally. This is a situation where one can observe his duty individually, because sometimes its carried out

without any pre-plan. It is sometime done in public, this form of Da'awah is a situation where by a Da'i has before him a multitude of people with the aim of changing their lives,

Prophet Noah adopted the above two (2) types of Da'awah or calling people to Islam i e public and individual to the extent that he said

"then I announce to them and (also) confided to them secretly".4

It can also be done in written form i.e to write a book or any kind of literature which include visual and audio cassette or any kind of media, television,radio station, all done in order to convey the Islamic Message,finally,it can be done by the use of sword, this was happen only when the aboveapplication mentioned became inevitable or as a result of all other means of Da'awahproved to be abortive.

Islam is the only accepted religion in the sight of Allah (S.W.T) and whoever follows any religion other than Islam, Allah will not accept it from him. Islam reacts this part of the global through Da'awah which means as the vehicle of spreading and propagating the comprehensive ideas and equities as well as the moral teaching of Islam from generation to generation. This can be seen vividly right from the time of Prophet Noah (A.S) down to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).

All Allah's Prophets and Messengers conducted Da'awahand urge their disciplines to perform it in whatever conditions and circumstances they may find themselves. Islam attaches huge virtue and reward for Da'i and he is considered as the Most Wise amongst the servants of Allah i. e Alamin which include Jinn mankind and any creatures of Allah (S.W.T). In the glorious Qur'an Allah said

3


"And who is better in speech than one who invites to Allah and does righteousness and says, indeed, I am of the Muslims".5

Therefore, Da'awah is a means of disseminating the true message of Allah's religion to the immediate neighbors, society and global Ummah at large. For that reason, this topic of research is designed to discuss extensively on how Islam transformed the lives of the people of Danko-Wasagu Local Government and to make a clear assessment of the success and problems encountered by propagators in the course of making Da'awah in the area and lastly to provide suggestions and recommendations.

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The institutions of Da'awah (calling people to the way of Allah) means inviting others to enter into the religion of Islam which is not act of violence directly to indiscriminate against non Muslims, it is the name given to all round struggle which Muslims launch against evil in whatever form or shape it appears. In the glorious Qur'an Allah said

"And let there be (arising) from you a nation inviting to (all that is) good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be successful".6

Islam is a divine religion which encourages Da'awah and its activities by sending the message of Allah (S.W.T). Islam is the only revealed religion through the Glorious Qur'an whose content is sufficient to mankind in this life and life to come, that is to say the work or struggle of Da'awah is very significant in the sense that after the first command given to the Noble Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) to read, the next command was to warn Muslims or people in general from evil and invite to the right path. In the glorious Qur'an Allah said,

"O you who covers himself (with a garment)".7 "arise and warn".8

the chapter (surah) was the first commandment to the Prophet (S.A.W) to deliver the message. When it was revealed, the prophet (S.A.W) sprang to his feet and said to his wife (Khadija) the time of slumber and rest is past o Khadija, Jibril(A.S) has commanded me to warn mankind and call them to Allah and His worship. This is how Islam flowed from the prophet to his companions, their followers, up to the present day.The topic for this research is the effect of Da'awah activities among Muslims in Danko-Wasagu Local Government.
