The Best Way To Deal With The Ignorant: by muhsin(m): 12:55pm On Feb 14, 2009
The Best Way to Deal With the Ignorant:

", And from the best ways of dealing with the ignorant is to ignore and avoid them. This is because if you debate with them, they beat you, and if you beat them, they will end up hating you and will not admit your being correct. Therefore, ignore them:

{"So, avoid those who turn away from Our Reminder, "} [an-Najm; 29]

{", So, overlook their faults in a beautiful manner."} [al-Hijr; 85]

Avoid them and do not debate them, because debating them puffs up their chests and increases their confidence, and ash-Shafi'i said: "I never debated an ignorant person except that he won, and I never debated a knowledgeable person except that I won." This is because the ignorant one will deny even the presence of the Sun at noon, and will deny the presence of the Moon on a night when it is full!

So, watch the ignorant die if you avoid them, and be given life if you debate them. It might be that they come to their senses if you ignore them, and will realize their status if you are shown to be above debating and discussing with them - this is if you are sure that he is an ignorant follower of desires, not seeking to admit the truth, and not seeking to follow that which is certain, "

Those with hard hearts don't want to agree with anything that clashes with their beliefs. They vehemently argue, even lie, in their bid to remain undisputed. It can be amusing to see sometimes though. And the worst part of it is that when they have nothing meaningful to stand on in claiming that they are the ones in the right, they resort to calling muslims liars and saying whatever the muslims said, (which they cannot prove otherwise) are nothing but lies. How amusing.

it's nice article but, ignorance is never the not best policy, find out the best policy. if we were ignore them because of myopic thinking they engages their self in to. it will seem to them that they are in the right way. Allah knew that Pharaoh has transsgressed all bounds and played the tyrant. He sent Prohet Musa to him perhaps he did not know that is forbiden, but what Allah say to Musa, «And speak gently to him, so that he might hopefully be brought to his senses and entertain a profound reverence for Allah. (Qur'an 20:44). what we need to do is to educate them and patience because the only way which will can use to change the world is to educate ignorant people.

I do not think that everyone that is ignorant should be ignored. The verse quoted above was refering to those who have sworn not to change. If we were to ignore them all, we will do Islam great harm. After all, the learned ones among us were once ignorants.

Sincere ignorance is what you mean but arrogantly ignorant should be ignored.

An example is how do you argue for example with a person that denies that palestinian territoires is not under occupation when the UN and the whole international countries classify them as such. Welcome to the world of Davidylan.

point of correction, do not call Hamas the islamic Jihad of palestine terrorist. reason, in 2006 the entire palestians elected them as their leader, and US whose serve as a caustic agents and all the International body testify that election was fair and far election. since 2006 this Hamas have done a lot to palestians people's. back to the discussion, no Nation in this World can accept the cheat the isreali government is doing to the entire palestine people's, they Block their bouder, they did not allow them to take any infrastructure to their people. the truth would prevail.
