Q 6: My question is about
what should be given priority while practicing Da`wah (call to Islam)
here. Muslims here know nothing about Islam. Perhaps if most of them were to be asked about the pillars of Islam, they would not be able to answer. Moreover, many of them do not know the truth about `Isa (Jesus) (peace be upon him) thanks to the Russian mass media. They are subjected to
television which informs people that `Isa (Jesus) is the son of Allah. Moreover, they do not perform Salah (Prayer) and the youth pay no attention at all to learning anything about Islam. How should we proceed to call them to Islam with a sound plan based on the Prophetic methodology?
They should be called to Islam with wisdom and fair preaching and be argued with in a way that is best. You must adopt all possible means and use the language they understand. This should be done so that Allah may guide them and with the purpose of establishing proof against them and fulfilling our duty to (Part No. 12; Page No. 248) Allah. You may also make use of having them listen to the Qur'an and distributing appropriate books and useful tapes among them.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
