Allah has ordered the Muslim to deliver the Great Kalimah to those who has not accepted and recited the Great Kalimah. Allah has given this noble work to all Prophets and to the followers of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. Although the followers of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w are not Prophets but Allah has given this noble work to them. Allah has greatly honored the followers of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w by giving them the work of Prophets. When the followers of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w do the work of Prophets like the Prophets do then Allah will give them the worry like Prophets and the love towards humankind as Prophets. Allah has filled the heart of all Prophets with love towards humankind and with these love all the Prophets call people to Allah. Qualities of Prophets will come to the Muslims only when the Muslims do the work of Prophets. Until the Muslims do the work of Prophets, Allah would not give the qualities of Prophets to the Muslims. The first order that Allah gives to a person upon the reciting the Great Kalimah, I bear witness there is no God except Allah and Muhammad is the Prophets of Allah is to convey the Great Kalimah to the non-Muslims. The order is only to convey the Great Kalimah and not to convince the non-Muslims to embrace Islam. The work of conveying the Great Kalimah to others is call as the work of Tabligh or Dakwah.
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w said in the meaning whoever do not perform solat has destroyed Islam. When Muslims disobey Allah by not performing solat then Muslims have practically becomes the enemies of Islam. When Muslim disobeys the great commandments of Allah like solat then Muslims are destroying Islam. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w did not say that the non-Muslims are the enemies of Islam, as many Muslims tend to believe. Allah says the real enemies of men are the syaitan or the devils. Devils or syaitan are not only the enemies of Muslims but they are the enemies of the whole humankind. Syaitan or devils have only one work that is to make all men to disobey the orders of Allah. Syaitan will make all plans and tricks so that men disobey the orders of Allah. When Muslims disobey the great orders of Allah like Dakwah and Solat then Muslims themselves are destroying Islam. The first order of Allah is Dakwah and the second order of Allah is five times daily solat. Allah gives these great orders to the Prophets and his followers while they were still in Mecca and Allah gives all other orders in Medinah. When Prophet s.a.w said that when a Muslims do not perform five times solat which is the second order of Allah they are destroying Islam, what will happen to Islam when Muslims do not do the work of Dakwah, which is the first order of Allah. When Muslims are not doing the work of dakwah or the work of conveying the Great Kalimah to the non-Muslims then Muslims is not only destroying Islam but also Muslims in fact is destroying Islam to the ground. The enemies of Islam are Muslims who are not practicing the orders of Allah. The non-Muslims can kill Muslims but non-Muslims cannot destroy Islam. The non-Muslims who are under the control of the devils can become the enemies of Muslims but they are not the enemies of Islam. The enemies of Islam are the Muslims who are not practicing Islam particularly those Muslims who do not do the work of dakwah and perform five times daily solat with congregation in the mosque.
The Jews who kill the Muslims can be the enemies of Muslims but they are not the enemies of Islam. The Hindus who kill the Muslims can be the enemies of Muslims but they are not the enemies of Islam. When non-Muslims kill a Muslim because the Muslims believe in Allah and Muhammad as the Prophet of Allah, the Muslims will die as martyrs and he or she will enter Paradise. When Muslim dies while disobeying Allah, he or she will enter hellfire. A true Muslim will say I am ready to die in order to make Islam alive but I am not ready to live while letting Islam to die. This was the words uttered by Abu Bakar may Allah be pleased with him when he was trying to encourage the Muslims to go to war just after the demise of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. The non-Muslims are not the enemies of Islam and they are not the enemies of Muslims. The non-Muslims will only become the enemies of Muslims when they co-operates with the devils and syaitan to stop the work of dakwah or the work of conveying the Great Kalimah to the entire humankind. The Muslims who disobey Allah and who try to stop the work of dakwah are the real enemies of Islam. The hypocrites who try to stop the work of dakwah are the real enemies of Islam. Allah cursed the hypocrites more than the non-Muslims because the hypocrites are trying to deceive Allah and the Muslims. The hypocrites are not only imposter but they are at the same times trying to stop the work of dakwah. In the day of judgments, Allah will put the hypocrites in the lowest level of hellfire.
