The first, main, and primary foundation of the Call to Allaah, and why this is the case.
The ’aqeedah must come first because the only real cause for the differing and destruction that has come upon our Islaamic world is the loss of purified ’aqeedah.
WHY MUST ’AQEEDAH COME FIRST?
The ’aqeedah (creed) must come first because it is the foundation of the da’wah (call) of the Prophets as Allaah the Exalted said upon the tongue of every Prophet He sent to his people: “O people! Worship Allaah, you do not have a deity other than Him.” [Soorah Hood 11:84]

By al-‘Allaamah Ahmad Ibn Yahyaa an-Najmee
He lists many qualities that certain du’aat of today are lacking. These qualities must be fulfilled for one’s da’wah to succeed.
Say: This is my path, I call unto Allaah upon clear evidence (baseerah), I and those who follow me. And how free is Allaah from all imperfection and I am not from amongst the polytheists.
By Abu ‘Uthmaan Muhammad al-Anjaree
The speaker gives an important lecture concerning the institution of employing wisdom when giving da’wah.
By Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen
Concise explanation given by the shaykh in regards to questions like: What is the requirement of being a daa’ee? Is da’wah for men as well as women? What is the most fundamental duty of the caller? And a much needed clarification as to why we don’t differentiate between the Scholar and the caller.
As for the saying of some of the people that is is permissible to become du’aat (callers) without knowledge, then if they mean a daa’ee without a huge amount of knowledge, able to give fataawaa (religious verdicts), explain and deduce issues from their proofs – then it is possible to accept this saying.
