Benefit: The Unqualified Promoting Themselves in the Realm of Daʿwah

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

This issue is a disease plaguing the Muslim ummah. How many people have we seen promoting themselves in the daʿwah, yet they are totally unqualified. They think they are aiding the daʿwah, but in reality, they are not. They destroy and corrupt it more than they aid and rectify it.

Shaykh Ibn Bāz (رحمه الله) said: "The ignorant destroys, [he does] not construct, and he corrupts, [he does] not repair.1 

And indeed Allāh has spoken the truth when He said:

إِنَّمَا يَخْشَى اللَّـهَ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ الْعُلَمَاءُ  
"From Allāh’s slaves, it is only the scholars who truly fear Him." 
[Sūrah Fāṭir, 35:28] 

Therefore, had those who promoted themselves had an ounce of fear for their Lord, they would have remained in their rightful places, silent and hidden in the background. And Allāh’s aid is sought.
