The real dawah to Islam is the character of a Muslim.
Nouman Ali Khan
For the Bible and the Qur'aan to be the divine word of God, they must be free from inexplicable contradictions, and there should be no doubt about their content nor about their authors...
Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips (The True Message of Jesus Christ)
For us to accurately identify the true message of Jesus Christ, an objective point of view must be maintained... We should not allow our emotions to cloud our vision and thereby blind us from the truth. We must look at all of the issues rationally...
Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips (The True Message of Jesus Christ)
The message was wrong, I knew that now, but maybe the tactics were right. Perhaps we could use the methods of the Islamist groups to create a counter-Islamist movement, to do da’wah for the democratic culture?
Maajid Nawaz (Radical: My Journey out of Islamist Extremism)
I don’t believe in any form of racism... I believe in Islam. I am a Muslim. — Malcolm X
Yusuf Siddiqui (Malcolm X, Islam and the Problem of Racism)
A Quotation of the Foreword of Sheikh Hasan ‘Abdul-Bassir ‘Arafah (General Manager of the Islamic Da‘wah, the Ministry of Awqaf of Egypt in Alexandria): For the present, there is a ferocious attack on our Islamic heritage. Modernity Thoughts and radical groups still misunderstand and impugn the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Besides, to offend the companions of the Prophet ﷺ. The Prophet ﷺ had witnessed to them with fairness. They were like the stars in the heavens. The book’s contents are simple but not easy, written down by Eng.: Ahmad ElYamany. The author was affected by his father’s upbringing; I mean that his father educated him according to the Thought of Al-Azhar Ash-Sharif (1). His father did his best upon a pulpit of Masjid(s) for standing up for the Sunnah until his death. Now, the author does follow the example of his father. He did write down this book to explain The Study of Tradition Terminology (2) for ordinary people in simple words. Besides, he does show how the previous Imams of the ‘Ummah took care of The Study of Tradition Terminology. This book geared-towards an obstacle against those who make a ferocious attack on the Sunnah and the heritage. __________________ (1) The Thought of Al-Azhar Ash-Sharif: I do mean the Sunni Madhab. The Sunni Madhab is a term generally applied to the large sect of Muslims, which consists of: • Regarding Fiqh: who follows one of these authorised Madhabs: - Madhab of Imam Abu Hanifah (مذهب أبو حنيفة), Madhab of Imam Malik (مذهب مالك), Madhab of Imam Ash-Shafi‘i (مذهب الشافعي), or Madhab of Imam Ahmad son of Hanbal (مذهب أحمد بن حنبل). • Regarding Creed: who follows one of these authorised Theologies: - The Ash‘arism Theology (Ash‘ariyah: Arabic المدرسة الأشعرية) or The Maturidism Theology (Maturidiyah: Arabic: المدرسة الماتُريدية). • Regarding Sufism: who follows one of any authorised Orders or Schools (Tariqah: Arabic: الطريقة الصوفية) of Sufism, such: - Al-Ghazzaliyah (الغزَّالية), Al-Qadiriyah (القادرية), Ash-Shazliyah (الشاذلية), Ar-Rifa‘iyah (الرفاعية), and so on. (2) The Study of Tradition Terminology: (Arabic: علم مصطلح الحديث), pronounced in the Roman Transliteration: ‘Ilm Mustalah Al-Hadith. The word Al-Hadith or Hadith means Communication or Narration. In the Islamic context, it has come to denote the record of what the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said, did, or tacitly approved.
أحمد اليمني (The Hadith And The Narrators ... In Simple Words)
الرغبة اللي جوانا كلنا في الدعوة إلى الله وتوصيل رسالة ربنا للناس دي حاجة رائعة، بل هي السبيل الوحيد لدخول الجنة، لكننا لو معرفناش نوجهها صح بمنهج النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم الحقيقي هنتسبب في ضرر أكبر من لو سبنا الناس في حالها بدون ما ندعوهم إلى الله، او كما نظن.

أفتكرت موقف كمان رائع حصل في نفس اليوم و إحنا بنوزع المطويات الدينية على الشاطئ مارينا ٥. شفنا شاب عنده حوالي ٢٥-٣٠ سنة واقف بعربيته المرسيديس الجديدة راكن عمودي على الشاطئ وساند على الكبوت وباصص على البحر. كان ماسك ازازة Heineken بإيد وسجارة بالإيد التانية وبيبدل فيهم في بطئ وصمت. كان باين عليه أنه مخنوق جداً وبيفكر تفكير عميق. كان واضح أنه في لحظة تأمل وبيفكر في تعديل مسار حياته. حسيت أنه محتاج يبقى لواحده فكنت متردد نكلمه بس حسيت برضه أننا ممكن نساعده فقررنا نديله مطوية. ركنا قريب منه ونزل Esso اداه الprint. الولد بص فيها فاتفاجئ جداً.. وإحنا اتفاجأنا أكتر من رد فعله. كان سعيد جداً وقعد يشكر Esso بشكل عجيب. رد فعله كان كأننا عملنا حاجة هو مستنيها من زمان. طلع محفظته من جيبه وطلع منها فلوس وقال لEsso “طب أنا عايز أساعد، عايز أشارك معاكوا، عايز أخد ثواب”. شيء رائع أن واحد بيشرب يتأثر بكل السهولة دي. شيء بيعلمنا أن الذكرى فعلاً بتنفع المؤمنين وأننا محتاجين بس نذكّر. Esso سلم عليه وركبنا العربية ومشينا وإحنا في قمة السعادة.

مرة وأنا بتكلم مع صاحبي السلفي أستشهدت بمعز مسعود وأ. مصطفى حسني أنهم بيقدموا دعوة للتدين السليم وأن مفيش داعي للتشدد الزائد اللي عند الشيوخ السلفيين. ساعتها صاحبي السلفي قالي خلينا نأجل النقاش في الخلافات الفقهية لأنها محدودة جداً يمكن أقل من 0.01% من الشريعة وأغلبها مقبولة وواخدة أكبر من حجمها، لكن أنت نفسك راجع كلام معز مسعود ومصطفى حسني بتركيز وقارنه بحياتك وتصرفاتك، هل أنت فعلاً بتنفذ كلامهم؟ هل أنت بتنفذ ال99.99% اللي كل الشيوخ والدعاة متفقين عليها؟ مشكلتي ومشكلتك ومشكلة كل المسلمين مش دعاة وسطيين ودعاة متشددين، وإنما مشكلتنا أن إحنا نفسنا مبنّفذش كلام حد فيهم. طبعاً رده دا كان مفاجئ جداً ليا، كنت متوقع أنه يدافع عن فكره وشيوخه ويدخل معايا في المناظرات اللي بحبها عن حكم المعازف واللحية وصلاة الجماعة وصفة الحجاب ومصافحة النساء وباقي المسائل المشهورة اللي أنا حافظ ردودها من النت وبحب أفتحها وأتكلم فيها بسبب وبدون سبب عشان أحس وأظهر للقدامي أني فاهم فقه كنوع من المراهقة الدينية، ولكنه كعادته كان عاقل جداً ومسمحليش أدخله في جدال عن مشكلة فرعية وإنما رجعني لمشكلتي الأساسية؛ أني أنا نفسي اللي مش كويس وبهرب من الحقيقة دي بأني أنسب فشلي في طاعة ربنا لناس تانية ملهومش سيطرة عليا، بغض النظر مين هما وبيقولوا إيه.

Intolerance was also there from the outset. Any Muslim who heard the Wahhabis’ call or dawah and did not join them was an infidel whose property was forfeit. This conviction that any opponent was an infidel or kaffir united, inspired, and disciplined the Wahhabis. From the outset, military conquest was part of their ideology, as commonplace raiding for loot was transformed into a holy war for religious reform.
David Rundell (Vision or Mirage: Saudi Arabia at the Crossroads)
Compton Gage, a Spiritual breed faction who seeks to restore early days of glory through Spiritual Warfare, a holy war directed against internal and external enemies both physical and spiritual. The perspective and movement focuses on religious studies and the winning of hearts and minds (da‘wah) as a way of creating a Holy society rule by the New World Order law. From Compton Gage’s perspective, humankind must strive to disseminate and implement Allah in all areas of life by liberating the lands on planet earth from other cultures through the holy war, which is perceived as the personal duty (fard ‘ayn) of every human being. "Thus we must fight the enemies of the world through the Holy Book and uncompromising military struggle." Moreover, according to the Conflict with demonic strongholds and moral deception that require spiritual weaponry and armor perception, its enemies are not only external, but also other regimes that cooperate with the unbelievers, evildoers, or secular Arab/African/Western regimes that are considered “infidel.” Therefore, according to Compton Gage, the Holy Book religious law justifies overthrowing them.
COMPTON GAGE
Moderate’ Muslims, and apologists and propagandists for Islam, will attempt to deny or obscure the real meaning, nature, and intent of jihad. Some will say that jihad means only a Muslim’s ‘inner struggle’ to be a better person, and that jihad has no military meaning whatever. Others will acknowledge that Muslims have a religious duty to spread Islam throughout the world, but insist that it is to be spread only peacefully, through dawah—literally ‘the call’— meaning persuasion and reasoning. Finally, some will go so far as to admit that it can also mean warfare, but insist that in Islam, warfare is allowed only in self-defense or against oppression. However, all of these assertions are examples of a tactic that Islam encourages in waging jihad: taqiyya or Kithman—‘lying,’ ‘deception,’ ‘deceit.’ Muslims are encouraged to lie if, in the opinion of the liar, telling the lie will be ‘good’ for Islam. This is a documented fact according to both ancient and modern scholars of Islam.
Brigitte Gabriel (Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America)
In thirty years of going to study in Medina, “sitting with the ‘ulama,” “making hijrah,” distributing books from Saudi Arabia, making Dawah, pointing out bid’as, tearing down imams, taking over mosques, backbiting Muslims, putting people on and off “the minhaj,”  and calling other Muslims names, Salafis have established absolutely nothing.
