Part 2: Excerpts from 'A Code of Conduct—A Treatise of the Etiquette of the Fatimid Ismaili Mission'
In 'al-Risāla al-mūjaza al-kāfiya fī of Ahmad b.Ibrāhīm al-Naysbūrī has written the following gem:

"[§54] A dâ'î ought to possess a refinement of soul in addition to knowledge. Knowledge in the absence of refinement of the soul means that it lacks lustre, is unwelcome, its owner deficient in decorum, and his knowledge is of no benefit to him."

"[§55] He should have lofty aspirations, for he is responsible for great affairs in religion and in the world at large. God grants to the imams of His religion in every era, dominion over the earth by means of his dâ'îs and hujjas."
