Is It Correct To Begin Dawah by Calling The People to Good Manners?
Question to Shaikh Saaleh Al-Fawzaan (may Allaah preserve him)
[فضيلة الشيخ] may Allaah grant you success; is this path in dawah correct-and (that) is the first thing to begin with is to call the people to good manners?
No. This is misguidance; (it is) in opposition to the call of the Messengers. This is the call of the hizbiyyeen at present. It is a false call; yes, because it is in opposition to the methodology of the Messengers. They (i.e. the hizbiyyeen) want the people to begin with their creeds-be it grave worship, or polytheistic practices, or Soofiyyah. (What they give) importance to is to gather–only to be followed.
