The Preacher of Islam(Da'ie)

"How can I be a caller (da’ei)? I don’t have much knowledge..."
This statement always linger around, moreover to the people who do thing for granted. They just claim this expression to show that they are so naive in describing or explaining thing. This mentality only could make people become more ‘orthodox’ rather be an advance and extraordinary moslem. Actually, this mentality could be cause by colonist idealism spread by those who against Islam.
As a moslem, we do swear and express the kalimah toyyibah “La ilaha illallah, muhummadur rasullullah (No God except Allah, Muhammad the messenger of Allah)”. So, as we already express it, automatically we are bounded from doing sinful thing and become our responsibility to spread Islam.
We should change our narrow view about Islam. Practising Islam actually cover all aspect of thing, including social, economy, politic and much more. On that cause, we can spread Islam in many field according to our expertise or our skill. What I mean, may be a person is very well in giving talk, he/she might conducting a talk kind like about current issue, or if one cannot do so, their skill might be writing, editing, they probably yield some product according to what they do.
For student especially, there is no word to say, “I can’t do this” or “I don’t know” without put an effort on it. There is also no reason to doubt in gather it. If we don’t know, study we must. If we know, do we must. We moslem youth or student should take serious this duty and must realize that we are in a great war even we found that there is no bombing, killing around us but during our time now, war is very transparent like hallucination. The war is in form of ideology and mentality.
And another (favour will He bestow,) which you do love-help from Allah and a speedy victory. So give the Glad Tiding to the Believer).” Sura As-Saff (The Battle Array,61:13)
Then Allah do continue the ayat,
O you who believe! Be you helpers to the work of) Allah: as said Jesus the son of Mary to the Disciples(Hawariyun), “We are Allah helpers!” Then apportion of Israel believed, and a portion disbelieved: but We gave power to those who believed, against their armies, and they became the ones that prevailed.” Sura As-Saff (61:14)
Carrying the responsibility in being a caller of Islam is not such an easy task, we need to be patience and well prepare in all aspect and view. Due to this challenge and test, Allah had stated in Sura Furqan(The Criterion) ayat 31:
Thus we ha we have made every prophet an enemy among the sinner: but is your Lord to guide and help
This ayat had remind us that we are facing same tribulation as what our prophet face in spreading Islam. Based on some example and points discussed, we should struggle, take risk and sacrifice many thing toward triumph.
