Rewards of guiding another

Guidance from The Prophet (saws)

Hadrat Abu Hurairah (r.a.) reported: ‘The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "He who calls others to follow the Right Guidance will have a reward equal to the reward of those who follow him, without their reward being diminished in any respect on that account.''’
Related by Muslim. Hadith quoted from Riyad-us-Saliheen (Hadith # 1382)

Commentary :

To invite every person who is willing to listen to good caution to the Truth of Islam is the obligatory duty of every believer; to accept or reject the invitation is entirely upto the individual.
If one is guided to the Straight Path by Allah through a person’s efforts, every good deed the one who was (newly) guided does, the person who invited him to the Straight Path will also receive a reward equal to the person who did the deed, without any diminish in the rewards of the one who actually did the good deed.
