:: Trait No. 19: The Dā'ī Must Be Kind, Merciful and Forgiving ::

Monday, Apr. 10, 2023

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.

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:

"[§39] He must be kind to the believers, merciful and forgiving. As God has said: 'We have sent you not but as a mercy for the world',53 and He said also: 'They that are merciful among them you will see them bowing and in prostration striving for the grace of God and His approval.'54. The dâ'î tries to emulate God in His mercy towards those who serve Him and the messenger and the imams in their mercy, their compassion, and their solicitude for the community in spite of the community's rebellion and the vileness of their acts and behaviour. It is as God said: 'If God were to punish people according to what they have done, He would not leave on the surface a living being';55 and as God said to His Prophet: 'Accept forgiveness; command the right; but turn away from those who are ignorant.'56"
