  • Are the more religious kids obliged to give dawah to their families?

    Or is it enough for them to look after themselves and only make du'a for their family's guidance?

    You should always help others learn about islam or become better as a muslim regardless of age, the thing is you just need to be patient with others when doing this. They may not take you seriously or may not understanding something, have an issue of letting go of bad habits, songs, porn, etc, so patience will be important.

      In other words, no, they don't have to give dawah?

      I mean, if they have questions or are interested in learning more about Islam, of course the more religious kids can help out and point them to the right sources, but they're not expected to make it their life's mission to make their family more practicing. Are they? Especially since the kids themselves might still be learning and growing as people.

        If talking works fine for you then advise them. If not, then give dawah with actions. In either case, you should always give dawah yes.

        I don't know about whether its obligatory or not, but you SHOULD give dawah.
        There are gems to be discovered in Quran.

        Recite :saw: when you read this sentence.

          Salaam

          It's a natural instinct to try and guide your family to what you think is the best, isn't it? As a muslim, we're obligated to teach others what we know ourselves of what's right and what's wrong. Isn't this how Islam was spread? If I care about no one but myself, this is selfishness and egoistic.

          You should try, to your ability, to guide your family as much as you can, and leave the rest up to Allah. It is Allah who guides, you only show the way.

            As long as you're in a position to do so.

              Nevermind. I think my question is answered in this verse of the Qur'an:

              "O ye who believe! Choose not your fathers nor your brethren for friends if they take pleasure in disbelief rather than faith. Whoso of you taketh them for friends, such are wrong-doers." [Surah Tawbah, Verse 23]

              So, I think it would be safe for me to say that we don't have to associate with our families too much if they're kafirs, apostates or not very practicing. If anything, distancing oneself from them might be better because it would protect you from their vile views or any negative influence and it might help them realize the error in their ways. Right?

                you have to give dawah but in a pleasant way and not in a pestering way, so don't constantly keep at it, tell them once or twice about halaal haram and that's it; during prayer time when you pray, you can remind them its prayer time

                  Yeah, you have to give dawah but you can do it tactfully or indirectly. Or you can listen to an islamic lecture when they are around and hope they'll listen and it will affect them. Making dua that Allah opens their hearts also helps. You should read "ya hadi ya noor ya hafeez ya salam la hawla wa la quwata ila billa hil ali ul azeem"

                  if others in your family are religious, then it's easier to do dawah because you have their support too.

                  Btw it's haram to remind someone of their astray days, like saying "who is this to advise me when he was astray and just started praying" etc.

                    if you are not giving dawah you are not fulfilling your obligation

                    and not just family but generally

                      What if it's very hard to even trust those people when they come to you for help or guidance because they've deceived you before, or do other bad things behind your back (but they assume that you're unaware of it)? As the "more practicing Muslim", do you still give that family member benefit of doubt and help them, or do you do things with the intention of teaching them a lesson? Wouldn't it be foolish to support someone like that?

                        Also, how did the Prophet Muhammad (P) treat or deal with zanis and zaniyyahs and wrong-doers? Did he give dawah to them, or shun them?

                          I think everyone should to their own family. Du'aa and Dawah.

                            It is wrong to remind someone who has repented about the bad things they did because it hurts them.

                            If you can't trust someone because of something someone did, then don't . But if they are in need, then you still have to help them. For evidence, read the story of Aisha radiAllaho anha in Surah Nur and the verse telling people not to stop helping a needy person because of something he did.
