Missionary approach to life[]

Al-Fadhli followed the missionary approach of Mohammad and his household. He draw a missionary approach for himself that transcends him to those goals. Those goals which are closely linked to Allah. He put the acceptance of Allah as priority in his mind. He did not pay attention to the ephemeral world, and false glory, nor flatter artificially (Al-Hussain, 2015)[3]
