Dawah, Islamic missionary work, means to "invite" (in Arabic, literally "calling") to Islam, which is estimated to be the second-largest religion, after Christianity. After the death of the Islamic prophet Muhammad, from the 7th century onwards, Islam spread rapidly from the Arabian Peninsula to the rest of the world through either trade and exploration or Muslim conquests. The purpose of Islamic missionary activity is to deliver the message revealed by God through Prophet Muhammad to the world.
