الدعوة للإيمان صحيح
CIFIA GLOBAL has embarked on a massive program to train one million Propagators of Sahih Iman in the World. We are providing Sahih Iman information and Guidance to Ahle Sunnah Youth for this purpose.
Correct Islamic Faith is the primary requirement for our revival in this world and our Salvation in Hereafter. On the Day of Judgment, people will be treated as per their faith. If your basic Islamic faith is not correct, you are sure to be thrown in eternal fire (Hadith Tirmidhi).
In this context it is our primary responsibility that we not only learn about Sahih Iman, but also explain it to our family members, friends and others.
We have discussed important points below which will help you in your Sahih Iman Propagation Campaign in your area.
LOOK AROUND TO GET INSPIRATION
Consider people in your family, friends and in your neighborhood who could benefit from the truthful Islamic Teachings.
Note down Islamic issues, you know better, that can be explained to them.
Think about doubts they may have about Sahih Iman and on the basis of your general experience, note down possible questions they may ask. Prepare for their answers from the Short Course Articles on CIFIA.
If you realize that you hesitate to approach people, then think about the ways to overcome it. To start with discuss about a small gathering of people from one person at a time. Note down their reactions. In the beginning you may face some problems because of your inexperience. Ignore initial hiccups. After discussing the issue with some people on one-on-one basis, you will overcome your hesitation.
If you find that the issue faced by you is to choose the interesting topics of discussion or ideas to be shared in your gathering, then try to choose a topic which is popularly debated among Muslims. Choose more than one topic to be discussed in your gatherings so that people do not get bored in initial gatherings. Gradually, increase your time on religious issues. Your positive interaction with people will make you popular in society.
IDENTIFY ISSUES AND GET INFORMED
There may be some Islamic issues that you are passionate to tell people about. There may be issues which can easily be discussed with people. You can identify these issues for discussion among your friends; like rising prices, corruption, educational standards, etc. At the same time seek their attention to know about Sahih Iman as well because on it depends our salvation in Hereafter. If you emphasize the Sahih Iman issue in a positive way, people will agree to discuss and will share their views.
Try to explore on line resources / Internet that are commonly acceptable to people. The convincing Articles about Sahih Iman on CIFIA may be very useful because we have quoted extensively from Quran and Ahadith while describing facts about Sahih Iman.
Arrange people to sit at a comfortable place and lead them to get involved. Listen to their views carefully and try to explain issues as per their understanding requirements. Do not reject their points of view because this will close the debate.
In these gatherings you will realize how people look at issues and how these issues are affecting their personal lives and their Islamic beliefs. At this stage you will know how others think and how they can be convinced. You will also learn how you can bring change in their way of thinking and bring the required change in their lives.
PLAN AND GET MOVING
Whatever comes out of your initial meetings, agree with people on further actions; like having more such meetings in the following weeks and months. See if they can be motivated in building a team of dedicated and enthusiastic people. Here is the chance to take action and make a difference in your community.
You can also initiate a friendly discussion over tea, etc., among your friends without telling them in advance about the purpose of the gathering. You can casually inform that you have been a regular visitor/member/director of CIFIA and are impressed with their explanations about Sahih Iman. Or you can casually start the conversation saying that you happened to stumble upon a site which gives interesting information about Correct Islamic Faith.
During your interactions, take others' points of view coolly. Do not jump into conclusions. Always remember, they are not your enemies and you are not their enemy either. It is a friendly dialogue that should remain pleasant and polite at all costs.
Avoid heated arguments. These arguments kill the purpose of your dialogue. Do not say to people on their face that they are wrong doers. This hurts individual ego and results in communication deadlock. Tell them that the purpose of your discussion is to clear misunderstandings and misconceptions about Quranic verses and Ahadith. Do not emphasize upon the sayings of the Sufi Shaikhs. You can always quote their good deeds, but try to reason your arguments more from Quran and Sunnah because this is the only way acceptable to people these days.
In spite of all your efforts, sometimes some people never come to common terms and insist upon their way of thinking. What can we do about it. Leave them there. But your dialogues do help you in many ways, read on.
HAVE LASTING IMPACT
Remember, learning about leading people is only the first step to develop important skills you need to have for a lasting impact on Muslim society. The extent of your impact will depend on your capacity and the capacity of your team to create meaningful and sustainable change in Muslims under CIFIA’s guidance. In this you will have the chance to begin your journey with insight and through inspiring and engaging people around you with the goal of making the behavioral and peaceful change you want to see in this world.Further Reading.....
