Shaykh `Abdul `Aziz ibn Baz
Words of Advice Regarding Da`wah
The use of media has become one of the most successful and beneficial means of communication in this age. This is due to its popularity and it being a weapon with two edges.
If the media, such as radio, newspapers and television, are used for giving da`wah, and for guiding people to Allaah and what the Prophet Muhammad has brought, then this is a great thing which can benefit the Ummah wherever they are, by the permission of Allaah. This can also benefit the non-Muslims in helping them to understand Islaam and comprehend it, learn about its merits and know that it is the path to success in this world and in the Hereafter.
It is obligatory for the daa`ees, as well as for the Muslim rulers to contribute in giving da`wah in every way they can, through the use of radio, newspaper, television and in speeches giving in gatherings on Jum`ah (Friday) as well as on other days. They should also use other means which enable the people to hear the truth, in all the languages used by the people, so that da`wah and advice can reach them wherever they are in the world, in their own languages.
