The active caller to Allah is the caller that is present in everywhere, and performs his role accurately in every situation. In his house, he is the best husband and father. In the street, he is a caller to everyone he meets. In the transportation means, his blessings cover all the passengers. When he enters a governmental institution, he gains rewards by advising an employee in secret, advising a woman does not wear lawful dress or reminding his neighbors in the line with something good. He is blessed in all his movements like the rain which gives benefits wherever it falls.
The active caller has reassured heart and patient mind. He is pious, generous and pure. His beneficence is for all, his guidance is wherever he goes, and his wise words destroy all curtains cover the hearts of the oblivious people. When he talks people listen to him, and when he gives da’wa people obey him. He is active and intuitive. When he faces handicaps, he looks at it patiently and says: “Come or not to come.” He is like Muhammad (peace be upon him) in his manners, like Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) in his belief, like Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) in his insistence, like Othman (may Allah be pleased with him) in his shyness, like Ali (may Allah be pleased with him) in his steadiness, like Al-Fudail in his temperance, like Ahmed bin Hanbal in his fiqh and like bin Taymya in his endurance.
His appearance suites his exalted role; he wears clean and modest clothes, and his piousness is clear with no mannerism. When people see him, they remember Allah almighty.
He does not care for the trivial things, does not bargain the dealers to lower the prices, and does not feel ashamed from removing the stones from the mid of the street. He smiles for everyone he meets and keeps his prestige from the deeds of the pixie people.
He is ready to give da’wa in everywhere. If you opened his case, you would find it full with sweet, booklets and simple gifts. He always has in his case recorded tapes for preachers and recorded tapes for the Holy Quran in addition to perfume bottles; these are the tools of the active caller.
He uses the sweet for making contact with people, and uses the books for guidance and da’wa, and provides the gifts when he invites someone to a lecture or Khutba, and gives the tape as a ransom for singing tape he convinced its owner to get rid of it, and provides the perfume for purifying and reassuring the hearts.
If you saw him coming with his smiley face and attractive appearance, you would throw each amulet does not benefit or harm.
The hearts fall in the trap of this caller to Allah, because the hearts of the believers loves each other. The prophet peace be upon him said: “Souls are troops collected together and those who familiarized with each other (in the heaven from where these come) would have affinity, with one another (in the world) and those amongst them who opposed each other (in the Heaven) would also be divergent (in the world).” [Narrated by Muslim]
When he talks the eyes look at him, and the tears of fearing Allah down when he says the words of love and affectionate for the sake of Allah. And if Allah has destined guidance to someone among his audience, you would find the whims die in the presence of his belief. And you could imagine (at that time) the Satan crying: “Woe to me, woe to me, the righteous man has snatched him from me!”
The active caller to Allah utilizes whatever is available and do not curse darkness, instead he participate in lightening a candle. If he could not achieve his goal through some way, he would search for another way. If he found nothing to use but his tongue and his hand signals, he would use them putting his trust in Allah Who guides to the Straight Way.
The active caller to Allah is the one who looks for the opportunities, seeks them and does not wait them till they come to him. He takes the initiative and does not wait the actions in order to take reactions. He does not know what people call them accidents or chances; rather he is intuitive ready to deal with any situation properly.
The active caller to Allah works hard in quiet; he does not like talking much. He is not arrogant and does not remind others with his generosity. His slogan after taking the orders from his leaders is “It had been known and will be implemented by God willing.” And if he is asked about a duty was enjoined upon him, he would say: “I am fulfilling it by Allah’s help.” And if he accomplished his responsibility, he would say: “The mission had done, and thanks to Allah.” This is the supreme shape of obedience.
The active caller to Allah cares for his religion whether he is professor, student, engineer, doctor, driver, passenger, employer, employee, married ,single, poor, rich, healthy, ill, sighted, blind, normal or handicapped; and whether he is in house, university, school, shop, bus, street or governmental institution. He utilizes his tongue, hand, self and money for the sake of the religion. His actions are an application to the saying of Allah almighty: “Say, "Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. (162) No partner has He. And this I have been commanded, and I am the first [among you] of the Muslims."”[Al-Anam 6:162-163]
And his slogan is: “Say, "This is my way; I invite to Allah with insight, I and those who follow me. And exalted is Allah; and I am not of those who associate others with Him."” [Yusuf 12:108]
The prophet peace be upon him said: “The true believer is the one who gets accustomed with people and people get accustomed with him, and there is no good in the one that does not get accustomed with people and people do not get accustomed with him.” [Al-Haythamy]
