BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The religion of Islam has been spreading through various agencies, starting from Saudi Arabia to the different parts of the world. Some of these agencies are some Muslim organizations in which Tabligh is one of them. All these organizations contribute immensely to the spread of Islam and to teach the people what the Qur’an and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) says. We could see that Islam was brought to West Africa through the Arab traders and some people embraced Islam not because of anything, but due to the good relationship they had with the people they contacted.
The impact of Tabligh society in the spread of Islam cannot be overlooked. Hassan (1937) asserts that Muslim both old and young, male and female are commanded by Allah to call the people of mankind from the darkness and other vices to the way of Allah who created both Jinn and Mankind for the purpose of worshiping Him alone.
He also says that, this Dawah of calling the people to the way of Allah in terms of asking people to enjoin what is good and forbid what is bad through the words of the Qur’an and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Since Tabligh society do not stand to reform the society alone but to reform the entire nation on all socio vices, such as societal decadence, corruption, immorality, spiritually backwardness and other vices to the peak of Islamic consciousness, submissiveness, vitues, tolerances, economic, religion and social relationship.
The role of Tabligh is seen as work of all the prophets sent by Allah (SWA) to prophets of Allah are sent down to His creators become and deliver the message of Allah to them. If we are talking about Jihad, which is the major work of Tabligh, we could realize that Jihad has been existed before its foundation as an organization which means Holy fighting in the cause of Allah or any other kind of effort Allah’s word (i.e. Islam) superior. Jihad is regarded as one of the fundamentals of Islam.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who happened to be the seal of the prophets, even iherished to partake actively in preaching. So, in the nutshell, this project want to look at: The contribution of Tabligh to the spread of Islam in Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State.
