Missionaries set Hazrat Zahra as their example
The president of Jamia az-Zahara reiterated, “A missionary or a speaker can change the direction of a man and even a word has this influence.”
He then said, “The international propagation should be conducted peacefully and kindly, the missionary should act as the messengers of the kindness, avoid the disputes and focus on the common grounds.”
