Part 1: Enlightenment Teachings from the Holy Qu'ran

 

 

Part 2: Excerpts 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:

"[§73] The dâ'î should possess gravity, an awe-inspiring manner and be pleasingly attired before his people. His character will be refined, splendid and commanding, and of an appearance such that none who look at him turns away from contempt. Comeliness and good appearance have an influence, gaining a power and standing that nothing else possesses. For that reason God said: 'And He increased him extensively with knowledge and substance.'80"

Footnotes

80. Qur'an, 2:247.

"[§106] In a similar way, the dâ'î should promote unity and amicability in the hearts of believers, bringing them into harmony with each other, prompting them to mutual aid and love, and to the cooperation of some with the others, and warn them against envy, malice, slander and hostility towards one another. Whatever one does not like having done to oneself, he should not do to a fellow believer."


(Source: Klemm, V. and Walker, P. E., A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission, p.73)

"[§58] He should be well acquainted with the lives of the imams, the arrangement of their da'was so that he can follow them and their example and their traditions."
