Da‘wah (Arabic: دعوة) usually denotes the preaching of Islam. Da‘wah literally means “issuing a summons” or “making an invitation”, being the active participle of a verb meaning variously “to summon” or “to invite” (whose triconsonantal root is د ع ى).
A Muslim who practices da‘wah, either as a religious worker or in a volunteer community effort, is called a dā‘ī, plural du‘āt. A dā‘ī is thus a person who invites people to understand Islam through a dialogical process, and may be categorized in some cases as the Islamic equivalent of a missionary, as one who invites people to the faith, to the prayer, or to Islamic life.
Da’wah or Call towards Allah, is the means by which the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) spread the message of the Qur’ān to mankind. After the Prophet, his followers or Ummah assume the responsibility of the Dawah to the people of their times.
