Facilitating the Opportunities for Female Du’aat


Facilitating the Opportunities for Female Du’aat

Is there any way to facilitate the opportunities [for Da’wah] for the female callers to Allaah Subhaanahu wa ta’aalah?

I do not know of anything that should prevent this. Whenever there is a woman present who is qualified to give Da’wah to Allaah Subhaanahu, she should be aided and it should be requested of her to direct/provide guidance to women because they are in need of female advisors/guiders of their own kind.

The presence of a female caller amongst women may be more beneficial in conveying the Da’wah to the path of the truth [to them] than a man. A woman maybe too shy to tell a man about the issues that concern her, or there may be something that prevents her from listening to the Da’wah from a man, but this is not the case when she is with a female caller because she mixes with her, relates to her what she is concerned with and she is also affected by a female caller more [than a man].

So it is imperative upon those who have knowledge from amongst the women to perform what is Waajib (compulsory) upon them in relation to Da’wah and directing [other women] to everything that is good according to the best of their abilities, as Allaah ‘Az wa Jal says:

{Invite/call (mankind, O Muhammad ) to the Way of your Lord (i.e. Islaam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Inspiration and the Quraan) and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better.} [An Nahl/175]

He also says:

{Say (O Muhammad ): “This is my way; I invite/call to Allaah (i.e. to the Oneness of Allaah – Islaamic Monotheism) with sure knowledge, I and whosoever follows me..} [Yusuf/108]

He says as well:

{And who is better in speech than he who invites/calls to Allaah (Islaamic Monotheism), and does righteous deeds, and says: “I am one of the Muslims.} [Fussilat/33]

And His saying:

{So keep your duty to Allaah and fear Him as much as you can…} [At Taghaabun/16]

The verses of this meaning are plentiful and they are general to both men and women and Allaah is the granter of success.
