As we see scholars and sheikhs delivering khutbas [sermons] and lectures, writing books to defend Islam, it is no wonder to find lay Muslims practicing da'wa [spreading Islam] while employing wisdom and fair exhortation. Muhammad al-Ghazali (1917-96), a renowned Egyptian religious scholar, a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood movement and the head of da'wa for Egypt's ministry of religious endowments, expressed the hope that the hundreds of thousands of Muslim immigrants "will not only maintain their religion, but become pioneers in spreading it, if only the Muslim umma (nation) wished for that and worked for that to happen." Hamdi Hassan, a professor of media studies at al-Azhar University in Cairo, wrote that the Muslim presence in Europe is an example of Muslim proselytizing turning from the defensive mode that characterized it during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to a new mode of expansion. In Saudi writings, these notions of proselytizing acquire a militant, confrontational tone. It is the enemy who will attack us and is more dangerous to us. The call on Muslim immigrants to Islamize Westerners finds resonance in some works by Western Muslims.
One source of these writings is the Saudi scholar Safr al-Hawali, who has invoked the need to conquer the West with da'wa, using terms unequivocal in their combativeness: And if one would ask: Why should we not invade Korea and Japan [as the Muslims have] human resources for da'wa? to this someone else would answer: No, we should direct [the human resources for da'wa] to Europe and America. Muhammad al-Qadi al-'Umrani is a Sunni Muslim living in the Netherlands, who wrote a Ph. dissertation at King Muhammad I University in Morocco on migration.
'My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning,' said Lohan.'It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning.
He invokes the conversion of "a considerable number of Westerners" to Islam as one positive result of migration and contends that migration for the purposes of commerce and da'wa has been proven throughout history to be a constructive contribution to the spread of Islam. Internet sites operated by Muslim scholars and organizations play an important role in encouraging the conversion of Christians.
This role is part of an embrace and use of the Internet as a medium in the service of Islam.
Islamic scholars found that to ban or ignore mass Muslim migration would only alienate immigrants.
Instead, they focused on strengthening the immigrants' Muslim identity while using them in the service of Islam.
