Dawa to Allah the call to Allah summoning people to truth, inviting people bility he asks and in a way that is more conducive happier, to lead them to a path of happiness in this life in the next life. It is an obligation and a duty upon every Muslim to invite people to good people. I don't mean just non Muslims but other Muslims, as I'm doing in front of you now, as I invite you now to that which is right, this is a form of Dawa, as you sharing a link to it is a form of Dawa as you assisting anyone to that which is pleasing to Allah, or resisting and turning anybody away from something that is sinful, is a form of Dawa, ordering what is good, forbidding what is evil
