Muslimah and Da'wah

Women just like men to perform religious obligations to God and beramar ma `ruf nahi unjust.

The arguments of Al-Qur `an and Sunnah include everything, except those excluded by the theorem. Sayings of the scholars is also clear in that regard. Among the propositions of the Al-Qur `an about it:

والمؤمنون والمؤمنات بعضهم أولياء بعض يأمرون بالمعروف وينهون عن المنكر

"The believers, and believing, some of them are helpful for others. They were sent to the ma `ruf and prevent the unjust." (At-Tauba: 71)

كنتم خير أمة أخرجت للناس تأمرون بالمعروف وتنهون عن المنكر وتؤمنون بالله

"You are the best Ummah who are born to humans. You get to the ma `ruf and prevent the unjust and you believe in God." (Ali Imron: 110)

Should she call people to God with adab-adab in accordance with the shari'ah `at what is demanded of the men. She was also to be patient and reward from God:

واصبروا إن الله مع الصابرين

"Be patient you, for Allah with those who patiently persevere." (Al-Anfal: 46)

And also the word of Allah azza telling wajalla Luqman to his son saying:

"O my son, be steadfast in prayer, send to the ma` ruf, forbid from the unjust and be patient you deal with what happen, because it is a matter which is required of God. "(Luqman: 17)

Then he also should consider a few cases, such as: he must be a model in maintaining iffah (honorary), veil, and Salih charity. Let him menjahui tabarruj and ikhtilath (mix-ups between men and women who are not mukhrim) that it is forbidden to him preach with words and actions in leaving what is forbidden by God above. (This is the answer to question: What is your opinion between women and propaganda?)

Next Question: Do we need to make time for a woman that he preach to God?

Answer: I do not find that there are restrictions in that regard. If you find a woman who could preach Sholihah, then he should be helped, set the time, asked him to coach the women like, because it is the women need to mentor women. The existence of such women among other women sometimes more useful in conveying the mission to take him to the right than men. Sometimes the women were ashamed to ask the da `i the man, so he hid what he should ask. Sometimes he is also forbidden to listen to the preaching of men. But if you `inya woman, she is not. Because he can close with him and tell him what he needs and it's bigger influence.

So women who have science or da'wah should carry out this duty and lead to good word of God as best he could based on:

ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة وجادلهم بالتي هي أحسن

"Take them to the Lord your path with wisdom and good advice as well as those with debatlah best way." (An-Nahl: 125)

قل هذه سبيلي أدعو إلى الله على بصيرة أنا ومن اتبعني

"Say: This is my path, I call people to God based on bashiroh (science), I and those who follow me." (Yusuf: 108)

"And who better words than those who call people to Allah and do good Salih and he said: Surely I am of those who have surrendered (Muslims)." (At-Taghabun: 16)

And also the word of God Subhanahuwata `ala:

"So bertaqwalah you could." (Fushilat: 33)

The verses which convey the same is quite a lot. Include men and women, and only God who gives taufiq.
