QA390: Sir what is islamic position on preaching in public space the way the Christians do like in the bus


Sir what is islamic position on preaching in public space the way the Christians do like in the bus. is it not like a disturbance to people who don’t want to listen?

Answer

Praise be to Allah; may the blessing and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.

To proceed:

The basis is that one can and should preach and admonish people whenever there is opportunity to do such. Allah says,
“فذكر إن نفعت الذكرى”
(So remind, [ the people] whenever the reminder benefits).

As for reminding and admonishing the people whenever one finds oneself in a public bus or something similar,this isn’t a good thing particularly when one is geared towards that by the intention to imitate or counter the Christian preachers doing that.
