Arguing with Them in the Best Way

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Allāh the All-High says [what in English means]: “…and argue with them [on behalf of the truth] in the best way.” (Al-Naḥl 125) The great scholar, Al-Shawkānī said [with regard to this]:

Meaning: using the best of all ways of argumentation. And He, be He exalted in His perfection, has only prescribed [upon us] good argumentation since the caller [to the truth] is right and true in his claim and his aim correct, [while] his adversary promotes falsehood, his aim corrupt.
