Dawah and Tabligh require kindness and mercy. Prophet Muhammad PBUH and others before him always acquired the way of inviting people with kindness and love.

Tabligh and Da’wah require one to be a good human being and true to his cause. His heart should be free of any judgment and pride.

He should be humble and kind and follow the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad PBUH.

A learned person should share his knowledge with others in order to educate them. Similarly, the knowledge of deen should be given and shared with everyone who is in need of such guidance. Prophet Muhammad PBUH propagated the message of Allah SWT and shared the knowledge that has been given to him by Allah in the form of Islam and the Quran. The Muslims should also promote the knowledge of deen among the disbelievers and the Muslims too in order to help them in restoring their faith.

Allah SWT gave Islam to prophet Muhammad PBUH but instructed him to preach and promote it secretly. The Prophet did tabligh secretly for many years and invited people towards Allah until it was revealed by Allah SWT to invite and do tabligh openly.
18 – The Era of Prophet Muhammad PBUH and Tabligh
Prophet Muhammed Pbuh started inviting people towards Islam secretly as it wasn’t commanded by Allah SWT to tabligh openly. He first invited his wife Hazrat Khadijah and she was the first Muslim woman to accept Islam. Hazrat Ali RA was only 10 years old when he accepted Islam.
Prophet Muhammad PBUH has faced hard times while inviting people towards Islam. He had been mocked by his own people, he also had been insulted in many ways but he never gave up on them. He would always forgive the mistakes of his people and made Dua for them. And invited them with mercy and love. Many kuffar accepted Islam due to his duas and kind behavior. He is the true example of doing tabligh towards Islam.
19 – The Duty of the Messenger
Allah has sent His messengers to every nation in order to guide them on the right path. The Messengers would carry the knowledge of Deen and message of Allah SWT in their hearts and invite people towards the only true God, Allah SWT. It became the duty of a messenger to propagate what had been given to him by his Rab and thus he would do tabligh to gather Muslims under one banner.
20 – Importance of Tabligh in Islam
The process of tabligh toward Islam has been going on for centuries. Allah has sent His messengers in every nation and guided them to the right path. From Hazrat Ibrahim to Hazrat Muhammad PBUH, the true message of monotheism has been promoted on the instructions of Allah SWT.
