Not everyone is fit for daʿwah, and not every zealous person is fit for daʿwah, enthusiasm coupled with ignorance is harmful and does not benefit.
Al-ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-FawzānHaving zeal for the daʿwah is good. A person may have an ambition for Daʿwah and to do good, but it is not permissible for him to enter into the field of daʿwah without having studied, and knowing how to call to Allāh (ʿazza wa jal) and knowing the ways of going about daʿwah. He must have knowledge of that which he wants to call to.

Narrated by Sufyān ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Thaqafī who said: “I said to the Prophet [may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him]: ‘Give me a statement I could not receive from anyone after you.’ He said: ‘Say: I believe in Allāh, then be steadfast.’” Narrated by Muslim.
Shaykh ʿAbd Al-Raḥmān ibn Nāṣir al-Saʿdī [d. 1376 AH] said:
This man requested from the Prophet [may the peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him] a statement that is comprehensive in benefit and goodness, that would provide for him an avenue to true success. So the Prophet [ﷺ] ordered him to firstly have belief…
Assisting one’s wife in household chores does not emasculate a husband. Rather, it is from the righteous characteristics that emulate the noble Prophet (ﷺ).
Imām al-Bukhārī reported that al-Aswad said: “I asked ʿĀishah (رضي الله عنها): ‘What did the Prophet (ﷺ) use to do inside his house?’ She answered: ‘He use to keep himself busy serving the members of his family, and when it was time for the prayer, he would leave.” Ḥadīth (676) and (5363)
‘Serving the members of his family’ meaning, assisting them in the different tasks that were binding upon them.

So Allāh – the Most High – ordered all of the Believers to cling to the Rope of Allāh collectively, and not to split-up. And clinging to this Rope of Allāh has been explained as meaning: Clinging to the Book of Allāh, to His Religion, to Islām, to ikhlās (purity of belief and actions to Allāh), to His Commands, to His Covenant, to His obedience and also to the Jamāʿah.
Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymīyyah (d.728H) raḥimahullāhAllāh – the Most High – said:
“O you who believe! Have taqwá (fear and obedience) of Allāh as you should do, and do not die except that you are Muslims…
Imām Ibn al-Qayyim [d. 751 AH] said:
[The Ṣaḥābah], all praise and thanks to Allāh, never differed with one another in even a single issue pertaining to the names, attributes, or actions [of Allāh]. Nay, they confirm all that is in the Book [of Allāh] and the Sunnah with a completely united front. From the first of them to the last. They never denigrated it with an interpretation [from themselves], neither did they ever distort [passages] beyond their [proper] usages with the goal of changing its contents. They did not come out falsifying a single word from it, nor did they take those pass…
Do not precede them with the salams…
Imām Ibn al-Qayyim al-Jawziyyah
Chapter: His ﷺ Guidance In Greeting The Ahl Al Kitāb1
It is authenticated from him ﷺ: “Do not precede them with the salams, and if you meet them in a street, “2.
However, it is said that he ﷺ said this in a specific matter, regarding travelling to Bani Quraydhah, he ﷺ said, “Do not precede them with the Salāms.” So what about the regular person from Ahl al-Dhimma?
Or is it specific to whomsoever is in a state such as theirs?
Verily there occurs in Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim that, “Do not precede the Jews and the Christians with Sa…
His saying is the truth, His Actions are the truth, the meeting with Him is the truth, His Messengers are the truth, His Books are the truth, His religion is the truth, worshipping Him Alone is the truth, everything that has to do with Him is the truth.
