Dawah

What is our Dawah?
 
It is generally believed that we want to establish a Divine Government. The word Divine Government in itself is a bit vague, but some people willfully present it in a more misleading manner. Either people believe or they are made to believe so that by Divine Government, we mean nothing but a political system, which can replace the present one. Since those who will run it will be Muslim, so either it means or cleverly it is given, this meaning that our object is to get Government only and then follows a rather religious taunt that we are only world seekers, while, the hereafter should be the target. And that Government should not be sought on the other hand, it is given as a reward for a religious way of life by Allah himself. Some quarters say, it is due to lack of understanding and others quite coyly. Of course, if they cannot mislead us they certainly can a major chunk of the population. Should someone read our literature with open mind, he is bound to find that we do not stand for a political change only but we want to introduce that universal revolution in the individual and collective life of man which Islam calls for. And for which Allah Almighty sent whole lot of His Prophets under whose leadership Muslims always had striven.
 
Three Points of our Dawah
 
If we may put forth these three points of our manifesto, they will run like this;
1.       That we invite generally, those who are already Muslims, to the obedience of Allah
2.       We call upon everyone who may embrace Islam: To get rid of hypocrisy and contradiction that is; one should be true to his claim.
3.       We call upon you to come forward and end the influence of the proponents of falsehood, the sinful, and non practicing Muslims, from prevalent system of life, and in place, transfer the leadership from both theoretical and practical point of views, to those who are true believers and pious ones.
These three points, albeit, are quite clear, yet since long they have been shrouded in confusion. That is why, not to speak of the non Muslims, even before Muslims, they need to be explained.
 
 
Our Dawah
 
Our Dawah is that the Muslims must realize their responsibilities as such. What are these responsibilities?. They are not merely to follow the Muslim rules and rites with regard to marriage, divorce and inheritance. The most important and cardinal demand Islam makes from its followers is that they should stand by the truth----the truth they have professed; the very purpose to make them a specific people, according to Quran is to bear witness to the truth(The Quran).
In fact, all the Prophets were raised for this purpose, and after the death of every Prophet his people were required to discharge the same duty to continue his mission. Now it is the bounden duty of the Muslims being the followers of last of the Prophet (PBUH), to preach and practice,   the way the Prophet (PBUH) himself performed it. Jamaat-e-Islami has been setup to discharge this very duty; individuals, no doubt, are engaged in the propagation of the good and reformation in a limited circle. Jamaat-e-Islami wants to extend this work to the whole spectrum of life collectively. And wants that Ummah should perform this duty of standing by truth which has been so exhorted by the last of the Prophets himself. In fact, verbally and practically duty of standing by truth can only be carried out, when a state based, on these principles, is established which by Islamizing the whole life, administers, justice, introduces good governance, reformation, brings peace ensuring the welfare of its people
Apart from this, through pious character of its rulers, noble politics, correct foreign policy, war for a noble cause, and through faithful compromise, sets an example that the Deen (Islam) which in its very basis is guarantor of human welfare and its practice is key to the good of whole human race. It is this divine government the Jamaat-e-Islami pleads and such a government can bear witness through its performance to the fact that Allah has pleased to prescribe Islam as a way of life for all mankind which was handed down to us by prophet of Islam on the occasion of his last sermon. He asked the audience, “ Have I conveyed the message of truth to you?” Reply came, “yes” then he said, “O Allah”, bear witness to this”.
 
 
Basic Points of Jamaat-Manifesto
 
To get this objective Jamaat-e-Islami calls upon the Muslims:
1.       To go obedient to Allah Almighty
2.       And free their lives from contradictions, hypocrisy and dichotomy of word and action and thus live like a true Muslim.
3.       Calls upon you to come forward and end the influence of proponents of falsehood, the sinful, and non practising Muslims from prevalent system of life and in place, transfer the leadership from both theoretical and practical point of views, to those who are true believers and pious ones.
This third object can be achieved only when a group of pious Muslims is organized in their ranks who is free from hypocrisy and meets high standard of ethics. Not only this, he should be unique man of all those capabilities which are must to run the system of life.
 
 
The General Policy of Jamaat-e-Islami
 
1.       Jamaat-e-Islami will see, every action it takes, whether it is in line with the injunctions of Islam or not and go beyond it, so far as permissible.
2.       To get its objective Jamaat will not resort to those means and methods which are in conflict with truth and honesty, or anything which may result in mischief.
3.       Jamaat will try to bring revolution and reformation through constitutional ways i.e. preaching and propagation of its views and by moulding the minds, through character building, and by making the public opinion which conforms to its principles and policy.
4.       Jamaat will not implement its manifesto through underground movements; instead, it will do everything openly.
