On a few occasions recently, a brother involved in the effort of Dawat and Tabligh has been trying to force me to get involved in the effort. He goes to the extent of saying that it is "Shaytaans deception that he takes us away from the effort of Nabee Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam and gets us involved in things of lesser importance". I usually keep quiet when he talks. Should I respond in any way?
Just listen quietly. Know that all efforts of Dien are beneficial and necessary. Do not argue or fight. Understand there is a lack of the understanding of Dien. Excuse them.
