The Da'ie Ummah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

,السلام عليكم
It's been almost a fortnight since I last posted. Been busy cleaning up the house since my house is being renovated...inside out. So I've been kinda busy. 
To date, the poll I set up is now the majority wanting me to go to MRSM. InsyaAllah, I'll be taking my entry test on the 10th of December, so I hope you all pray for my success and other Al-Aminians who applied for MRSM *wink*. 

First and foremost, I would like to thank my old friend, Ahmad Nabil bin M. Noor for reminding me of this subject about our ummah, the Da'ie ummah.

So far as I know, and I know very little, every ummah before the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahualaihiwasallam was always guided by a Nabi or a Rasul and after a Nabi or Rasul was taken by Allah or killed by his own ummah, that ummah goes astray from the Right Path because there are other Nabis and Rasuls to do the job of doing da'wah to the people after the previous Messenger was taken by Allah. All except the ummah of Muhammad Rasulullah (pbuh). 

Muslims of the world today, dominating other religions by numbers of followers. After our Rasul was taken by Allah, the Sahabah carried on his teachings and after Uthman, an Islamic Empire exists. Not long after, about a few centuries after the Khulafa' Ar-Rasyidin. the Golden Age of Islam emerges. Notable names in the Muslim society begin to pop-up in the fields of Science and Mathematics. Whether it's Al-Biruni or Ibn Sina, they had contributed to the world with new knowledge.

How could this happen? This happened because at the time, the ummah was strong, their faith were secure and firm and they fulfilled the duty of a Khalifah magnificently because there are no other people to hold that responsibility, the responsibility of doing da'wah because Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was and is the Last Prophet and the mission of spreading Islam to the world isn't complete.  

How did they do this? They did da'wah not only by talking, preaching to people and spread the truth of Islam, but also through their actions. Their actions speak louder than words, their character was pleasing to everybody and what they said, they did and caught everybody's hearts to embrace Islam.

But, how about now? Today? Where has the empire gone? Where has the character gone? Where has the ummah gone? Being the Da'ie ummah doesn't mean going to a crowd and preach to everybody. It doesn't mean you have to give lectures about Islam to everybody you see. Today, it's more appropriate to preach by actions, show Islam is perfect for everybody. Show that Islam is the perfect Deen, way of life. Like now, I'm doing da'wah, I'm 15 years old and I do da'wah to the world through this little contraption called a computer. 

So, as the Da'ie ummah, and the Last ummah, we must build our character to be the character of the Qur'an or as close as it could be and at the same time, build others, together we can build the ummah again to it's former glory.
السلام عليكم

I really hope u'll stay. The decision's up to you.

But, to look at the past. Most of the creams went..leaving another quality ones alone to maintain alamin's biah. And it's a very hard task.

It's simple actually if we can see it through a mathematical picture. Equations of manfaat. For if you stay, u'll continue your mutual development..You give and take. So do your friends. To have another completely different environment, firstly u'll have to adapt yourself and it takes a long time before you can gain your momentum.

Apa pun, up pada nta nak pilih mana. Yang penting, ISTIKHARAH. Itu sebaik pilihan. :)

Syukran jazilan Asif,
I'm still deciding, but for now, I'll open all the doors available and when the time is right, I'll step into the door of my choosing.

InsyaAllah, I will look at your opinion, being my senior, I value it very much.
