Holy Ramadan Enlightenment Post No. 21 :: The Dā'ī Must Be Intelligent

Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim
In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Ya Ali Madad and Ramadan Mubarak. The motivation for this 30-day project is to increase the intensity of prayers during the month of Holy Ramadan. For this purpose, 30 posts for each auspicious night of Holy Ramadan have been prepared. Each post consists of four parts:

  1. Enlightenment teachings from the Holy Qu'ran;
  2. Excerpt(s) from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission';
  3. A Dhikr tasbi; and
  4. Angelic salwat

Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: An excerpt from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§41] A dâ'î must be intelligent, with perfect wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge that is not perfect intellectually is unhealthy. As God has said: 'None understand it but the intelligent';58 and He said: 'It is only those with understanding who perceive';59 and He said: 'Eat for yourselves and pasture your flocks; surely in that there are signs for men of understanding.'60"
