    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 935/781/B=1432) Tabligh has always been fardh on the Ulama of Ummah. There are proofs in the holy Quran and Hadith. It is not right to say that Almighty Allah has only provided this chance to earn reward. وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْرِ وَيَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ [آل عمران : 104] ولتأمرن بالمعروف ولتنهون عن المنكر الخ – (الحديث) بلغوا عنى ولو آية . (الحديث)
