- Dawah (literally: summons or call, also da`wa) is an Arabic term meaning "invite" or "invitation".
Dawah is considered to be the Muslim responsibility to invite others to Islam. Dawah is often referred to as the act of preaching Islam.
Adhan (Arabic: أَذَان , or azan (as pronounced in Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), is the Islamic call to prayer, recited by the muezzin at prescribed times of the day. The root of the word is ʼḏn أَذَن meaning "to permit"; another derivative of this word is uḏun, meaning "ear".
- Ruku` means to bend the body to bow. This bowing is one of the acts required in Islamic Prayer. Additionally, the same word denotes a certain unit in the Qur`an.

means 'Mother of the Believers'. This was the title of the Prophet's wives; (sura 33 ayah 6 stipulated that they could not marry after the Prophet's death because all of the believers were their spiritual children.
Hanan means the love for affection and tenderness (towards others).One of the characteristics of Yahya (peace be upon him) mentioned in Surah Maryam:
حَنَانًا مِّن لَّدُنَّا
"affection from Us". surah maryam 19:13
Ibn Kathir says: (And Hananan from Us, ) "This means mercy from Us.'' `Ikrimah, Qatadah and Ad-Dahhak all said the same. Ad-Dahhak added, "Mercy that no one would be able to give except Us.'' Qatadah added, "With it, Allah had mercy upon Zakariyya.'' Mujahid said,
﴿وَحَنَانًا مِّن لَّدُنَّا﴾
(And Hananan from Us,) "This was gentleness from His Lord upon him.'' The apparent meaning is that Allah's statement Hananan (affection, compassion) is directly related to His statement,
﴿وَآتَيْنَاهُ الْحُكْمَ صَبِيّاً﴾
(and We gave him wisdom while yet a child.) meaning, "We gave him wisdom, compassion and purity.'' This means that he was a compassionate man, who was righteous.
