|Salaamun Alaikum, |
I am relatively new on this board but this one problem always bothers me. I'm in NY (by the city) and we have a lot of Islamic extremists. Such as the Nation of Islam (we encounter a lot of them here). As we all know they don't believe in Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) to be the last prophet and if you show them the ayat in the Qur'an where it explicitly says "Seal" .. they misintrepet that and define it as a "stamp" of approval (had an arguement with them on this before). And plus they believe Islam was made for the Black race, and have other fanatic beliefs that contradict the Quran and the Sunnah. So my question is how can we stop this? Is there a solution? They are tarnishing true Islam by applying their ways and own concepts. This is not the only group but this certain group is very popular where I live. What can we do?

|I think you first need to get some sound knowledge what I mean is when one of these dudes come to talk to you. You correctly say hadith and quran text properly, which is properly researched with a good scholar. So when you do discuss with these people you are saying the haq(truth).|
Secondly, your approach to Dawah may need to change, try to gain their heart once you have their heart their body will follow. How can you gain thier heart...?? By being sincere, polite and if it means your off to Starbucks for a coffe buy another one for the person who you are giving dawah to.
Thirdly, Tahajud, pray at night to gain Allahs pleasure and make dua for these people to guide them on the straight path.
Also there is a hadith of the prophet [saws] to the nearest meaning that in this ummah there will be 73 sects and only one will go to jannah the rest to hell.

|I see. I have tried what you have said. Only Allah knows if it made an impact or not, they don't accept ahadith from Sunni sources or Shi'a sources. Sometimes I lose patience when I really shouldn't, i mean they are really brainwashed. |
Allah Knows Best..
