With the name of Allah Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Surah 27 (The Ant)
Calling to Allah is a duty of all Muslims
“And he diverted her from the worship of others besides Allah: for she was (sprung) of a people that had no Faith.”
Sulaiman AS was successful in his dawah to the Queen of Sheba. We learn from this verse that we need to call others to the worship of one God as we do not know the circumstances and environment that they grew up in and conditioned their beliefs leading to their thinking currently. However in the end it is up to them to accept or reject the call.
Cross ref: 3.20
“So if they dispute with thee, say: I have submitted my whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me. And say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: do ye (also) submit yourselves? if they do, they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, thy duty is to convey the message; and in Allah’s sight are (all) his servants.”
