In Response To: The first fish (Arif Hakim)

16:125 Call to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and beautiful exhortation. Reason with them most decently. Your Lord is best Aware of him who strays from His Path, and He is best Aware of the upright.
16:126 Hence, if you have to respond to an attack in argument, respond only to the extent of the attack leveled against you. But to bear with patience is indeed far better for the steadfast.
16:127 Endure then, with patience, always remembering that it is none but God Who gives you the strength to endure (O Prophet). Do not grieve over them, nor be distressed by the false arguments they contrive.
16:128 For, certainly, God is with the upright, and the benefactors of humanity.

We must all learn how to argue with those we disagree with.
Strong words should be gently spoken.
To catch a fish you must set bait. Through my quiet diplomacy we may have a chance of showing the good brother where he is wrong, or where we are wrong. Others have used a hammer against him; I want to use intellect and reason.
Those who think out of the box sometimes fall over the edge, I am not one to join them, and since very few understood my “truth about pork” post, some may not see my bigger picture!

I have always wondered who the following is addressing, those we call N2I and other miscreants of Islam, or myself! One Day we will find out.

31:17 “O My dear son! Strive to establish the Divine System wherever you are, and advocate the doing of what is right and forbid the doing of what is contrary to the Permanent Values. And remain steadfast in the face of whatever may befall you by way of opposition and persecution. All this, behold, will require unwavering determination.”
31:18 “And never be arrogant with people, and walk not haughtily on the earth. Indeed, God does not love any bragging boaster. [17:37, 57:23]
31:19 “Walk humbly and subdue your voice. For, the harshest of voices is the voice of the donkey."
