    Also, if a person is sincerely looking for the truth, they will investigate Islam on their own. Allah will guide them.

    What these "dawah men" don't realize is that most kuffar these days don't really care about finding the truth. All they are interested in is this life.

    With these types of people, trying to shove Islam down their throats on the street, won't do much. Their minds won't become enlightened in a 10 minute conversation with a retarded Wahhabi.

    We aren't supposed to bother other people as they go about their daily business. If they seek the truth, they will come to Muslims on their own.
    We should avoid using Christian missionary tactics.

    So true....I find modern "dawah" tactics to be aggressive and counter productive...also it turns the deen into just argumentation and rhetoric but side lines action. As Shaykh Asrar said the Sufis converted thousands of people by showing noble character and then learned preaching...not just barking at people in a park or town centre...plus it reduces the need to fight our nafs and be good, clean, productive muslims...if we acted in a shariah compliant way, instead of just shouting and sloganeering, then the islamophobes wouldn't be able to point a finger at us...but because we're all talk and no action we facilitate our own demise by not living up to the words we preach in public. I'm a convert and I can tell you this...if i'd have met with dawah man when I was a non muslim..i'd have ran a mile because of his stupidity and lack of manners.

    I love how the Shaykh exposes the "dawah" tactics people use these days.
    We used to have Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti, now we have likes of "Mohamaed Hijab" and "Ali Dawah" and "Dawah Man".

    Ya Allah.

    Very nice talk masha Allah. He lays out all the essentials. Too often even Sunni Muslims these days get side tracked into debating secondary or tertiary issues.

    We have to understand that for people who don't even believe in God, debating issues such as Hudood Punishments or whether or not Islam is "unjust towards women", are all beside the point.
    Of course these modern day liberals and postmodernists are going to attack Islam using these issues.

    We have to be educated about our own religion and prove to others that it is based on rationality.
    This is the biggest misconception atheists have about religion in general, but Islam in specific.

    The principles of logic and the existence of a Divine Creator who is Eternal, Everlasting, All Powerful, and exists without time or space, are the foremost things we must focus on when debating someone who is atheist.

    I have been in the UK for a few months now and it is truly sad seeing all these pseudo Salafi, Muslim Brotherhood types going around streets and college campuses trying to do their "dawah".
    They don't know the basics of the Ashari/Maturidi Aqeedah or how to refute basic arguments.
    They end up doing nothing more than making Islam seem like Christianity and it just annoys the people passing by.

    (Even worse is when on the street they will have the Quran playing on a tape recorder and no one will be paying attention to it. It is disrespectful to the Quran in my opinion)
