Shaykh Yasir Qadhi delves into the topic of how Islam spread in the world and what should constitute our approach as well in the same cause. Conversion to Islam happened voluntarily in the past. How did this come to be?
The philosophy of the Sahabas to spread Islam was to give dawah to the people about our religion and what it meant to be a Muslim. The actions of the Muslims is the best way to make anyone accept the religion of Islam.
The best example is that when the Prophet ﷺ migrated to Madinah, the Muslims were a mere 15% which rose to 90%. We are reminded of the first Khutbah which the Prophet ﷺ gave when he reached Madina.
We consider that our religiosity is only measured by Ibadah and Salawat but in reality, this is far from the truth. We should be the embodiment of our religion in our mannerisms, Akhlaq, family, social and general way of life.
