Inviting to Islam in a beautiful way

Inviting to Islam in a beautiful way

Allah, the Most High says;

“Invite (mankind) to the way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious. Truly, your Lord best knows who has strayed from His path and He best knows those who are guided.”

[Al Qur’an 16:125]

Explanation

“ ‘And argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious’ means, if any of them want to debate and argue, then let that be in the best manner, with kindness, gentleness and good speech. ‘Truly, your Lord best knows who has strayed from His path’ means, Allah already knows who is doomed (destined for Hell) and who is blessed (destined for Paradise). This has already been written with Him and the matter is finished, so call them to Allah, but do not exhaust yourself with regret over those who go astray, for it is not your task to guide them. You are just a warner, and all you have to do is convey the Message, and it is He Who will bring them to account.” [Tafsir ibn Kathir]
