Da`wah in circles full of Bid`ah

Q 4: Should we address people in the areas where there are shrines and graves are visited in order to clarify their beliefs in monotheism, or to other religious matters such as performing Salah (Prayer) properly and other Islamic duties? To what should we also call those who do not perform acts of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) but commit other sins? (Part No. 12; Page No. 245

A: When practicing Da`wah (calling to Islam), the condition of those called should be taken into consideration. Thus, those who commit acts of Shirk should first be warned against Shirk and called to monotheism then be directed to perform other religious duties. As for those who do not perform acts of Shirk but commit some sins, they should be advised to desist and repent.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
