Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I want to know what is Said about " A Women working as a Daaie" In Islamic Shariyath. Jazak Allah Khair
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Women as Dai
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 125:
Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 110:
You (muslims) are the best community which has been raised for the guidance of mankind. You enjoin what is right, and forbid what is evil and you all believe in Allah Alone.
To propagate the Truth of Allah Subhanah to all those who are willing to listen to good caution is the duty of every believer, man and woman, in Islam; starting first with ones family, loved ones, friends, acquaintances, etc. If one takes the higher and nobler route and strives to impart the Knowledge of Truth to mankind in general, it would be a deed worthy of earning great rewards from Allah Subhanah.
There is absolutely no restriction on a believing woman working as a daaie in Shariah, provided the rules of Shariah are honored and the strict segregation of sexes as directed by Shariah are maintained. A believing woman may very well strive to propagate the Truth of Allah Subhanah towards her family and the womenfolkand if there is a situation where the woman is the most learned person in the community, there is absolutely no harm if she is asked or consulted on matters of the deen even by non-mehram males, provided the dictates of strict hijaab as prescribed by Shariah are maintained.
The exact same law of the segregation of sexes that applies to a believing woman working as a daaie, applies to the men daaie too.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
