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:

"[§52] A dâ'î ought to be patient and gentle. A variety of people come to him who have minds concerned with different needs and questions. If he is quick to anger and exasperation, the people will try to avoid him. God has said: 'If you were harsh and hard-hearted, they would have broken away from you',71 and He said: 'Be patient for your patience comes from God',72 and He said: 'So be patient just as those of the messengers with firm resolution were patient.'73. There are none more patient than the prophets, the legatees and the imams, despite the evilness of the people of the community and their insubordination. They were patient, put up with their absurdities and looked upon those who committed sins with the eye of mercy and forbearance, in order to save them from hellfire."
