Essentially, the daees/the propagators of Islam or people who are interested to da’wah/propagate Islam are often reminded that they have to try to “Invite all to the way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious” (Al Quran Surah An-nahl: verse 125). Conducting da’wah with wisdom, thus amongst others, requires daees to choose their words tactfully. It is indeed necessary for daees to emphasize the beauty of Islam in a gracious and polite way. This book ties wisdom in da’wah to the art of using conditionals i.e. the employment of conditionals as a means to enhance understanding and maintain politeness in conducting da’wah.
