Hazrat Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once mentioned the following:
The effort of da’wat and tableegh, which entails striving for deen by leaving one’s home and coming out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala, is extremely important.
One of the special benefits of coming out in the path of Allah Ta‘ala is that a person leaves his homely environment and surrounding, and enters an environment of piety and righteousness. This environment of piety and righteousness has a motivating effect on him. It creates the deeni motivation within him to fulfill his deeni obligations.
Furthermore, on account of traveling to different places for the sake of deen, one is faced with various challenges for the sake of deen, and at times, he has to tolerate people. However, due to him tolerating all these difficulties solely for the sake of Allah Ta‘ala, he receives the special mercy of Allah Ta‘ala. Allah Ta‘ala mentions in the Qur’aan Majeed:
وَ الَّذِیۡنَ جَاهَدُوۡا فِیۡنَا لَنَهْدِیَنَّهُمۡ سُبُلَنَا
And those who strive in Our cause, We will certainly guide them to Our paths. (Surah Ankaboot v. 69)
