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:

"[§38] The dâ'î must be chaste and upright. It is as God said: 'To Him rise fine words and the rightesous deed He lifts upward';51 and He said: 'Those who repent, those who worship, those who praise, those who journey, those who bow, those who prostrate themselves, those who command the good and prohibit the reprehensible, and those who maintain the limits set by God and proclaim good tidings for the believers.'52 If they are those who give glad tidings, those who oppose them are they that are destined to perish."
