Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair ... (Sura 16:125)
Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright.

Islamic intellectual Dr. Muḥammad ‘Imārah has been released by the Egyptian high state security prosecutor, Hishām Badawī, after having been interrogated on charges of inciting sectarian sedition and insulting Copts and Christianity. While stating his acceptance of Dr. ‘Imārah’s apology for quoting texts that allegedly encourage the killing of non-Muslims, George Riyāḍ noted that the real problem with the book lies in its explicit Takfīr of Christians, particularly those who live in Muslim countries.
