Most Muslims know that Islam is a universal religion, meant for all mankind. Allah (swt) is the Lord of the entire Universe, and Muslims have been entrusted with the duty of conveying His message to all mankind. Alas, most Muslims today have become callous towards this duty! While accepting Islam as the best way of life for ourselves, most of us are unwilling to share this knowledge with those to whom the message has not yet been conveyed.

The Arabic word Da’wah means a call or an invitation. In Islamic context, it means to strive for the propagation of Islam. 

The Glorious Qur’an says:
"Ah! Who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah? But Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!" [Al-Qur’an 2:140] 
"Invite (all) to the way of thy Lord, with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious!" [Al-Qur’an 16:125]

“There is probably in the world no other book which has remained twelve centuries with so pure a text.” -Sir William Muir in “Life of Muhammad”, vol. 1 pg. 22 “There are in the public libraries of Europe many Qur’anic manuscripts of high antiquity, the oldest dating probably from the second Islamic century, but apart from some anomalies of spelling due to rudimentary character of the early Arabic orthography, no real variant can be detected in them. This conclusion is borne out by Noldake…” -A. Mingana in “Encyclopaedia of Religions and Ethics”, vol. 10 pg 549.

In the King James Version (Authorised Version) of the Bible, the following appears: “AND I SAY UNTO YOU, WHOSOEVER SHALL PUT AWAY (DIVORCE) HIS WIFE EXCEPT IF IT BE FOR FORNICATION, AND SHALL MARRY ANOTHER, COMMITTETH ADULTERY; AND WHOSO MARRIETH HER WHICH IS PUT AWAY DOTH COMMIT ADULTERY.” (MATTHEW 19:9) [EMPHASIS OURS.] Divorce in Christianity has always been forbidden, except in the case where the wife commits adultery. Of course, only a small proportion of Christians actually practice on this teaching these days. But the point we want to make clear to the concerned Truth-seeker is how Bible scholars throughout the ages have tampered with scripture in successive versions. In the later 1952 Revised Standard Version (RSV) of the Bible, the very same above-quoted verse reads: “AND I SAY TO YOU WHOEVER DIVORCES HIS WIFE, EXCEPT FOR UNCHASTITY, AND MARRIES ANOTHER, COMMITS ADULTERY.” - (MATTHEW 19:9)
