Avoid futile argument


SHAFAQNA – Human being should try to understand the truth and then spread it. Therefore, futile arguments must be avoided. Ayah 125 of Surah Al-Nahl says: “Invite to the way of God with wisdom and beautiful debating; and discuss with them in ways that are best and most gracious; for Allah (SWT) knows best who have strayed from the right path and who receives guidance.” Following the way of God can eliminate unpleasant arguments as well as preserving one’s dignity. That is way, Imam Hassan Askari said: Do not argue (do not engage in futile argument) that you will lose your respect [1].
