The ignorant one is not good for calling (people)even if his intention is good and even if his aim is to call to Allaah. If he doesnt have knowledge then he is unfit for dawa (calling people) because he is not Islamically qualified. The one calling to Allaah is in need to show for the people the wrong from the right in aqueedah (belief), in worship, in interactions, in manners, in etiquette, in personal life, and in many of things in the legislation in need of showing them these things. If he doesnt have the knowledge then how will he clarify to them. Will he say it with ignorance and make halal haram and make haram halal. This is a great catastophe. He will misguide the people even if his intention is good. Until without realising it misguides the people and make haram halal and make halal haram and gives a wrong fatwa. He is not fit for dawa except for the one equipped with Islamic knowledge taken from the book of allaah and the sunna.
