Every Muslim knows that we need to preach Islam to non-Muslims and tell them about Islam. However, not many Muslims know why we should do so. Well, there are many reasons why we should preach Islam to our non-Muslim friends. First of all, Allah, through the Holy Quran, has told Muslims to do their best when it comes to getting non-Muslims to convert to Islam and become Muslims. Allah has stated on many occasions that Muslims are to peacefully preach Islam to non-Muslims without using any kind of violence whatsoever. In addition, Allah has also stated on many occasions that it is true that only those who receive his guidance accept Islam, but it is the duty of a Muslim to preach Islam to their non-Muslim friends.
Secondly, Holy Prophet (PUBH) spent his whole life trying to get non-Muslims to become Muslims by accepting Islam and succeeded in converting almost all of the non-Muslims that he had met throughout his life. This example, set by the Holy Prophet (PBUH), shows us that we too have a responsibility of preaching Islam to our non-Muslims friends. In addition, Allah and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) have also stated that the Muslims who are successful at preaching Islam to non-Muslims and getting them to accept Islam without having to use force or violence earn a lot of merits and rewards, both in this world and the world that is to come.
