Da'wah with Audio Cassettes is Resorted to Only When Necessary

I know that we are supposed to call to Islaam; is it sufficient, though, for me to give an audio cassette as a gift to someone who I invite, especially since I don't have suitable skills to call people in other ways?

For sure, inviting others orally will have more profound effects than merely giving somebody a book or tape that they may or may not read.

He will usually benefit from that tape when he is already seeking out the truth, but he will usually not benefit when he is coerced into listening to it. So when somebody does not have much time, for example, he could give somebody a tape or a cassette. Otherwise, he will be more successful in his Da'wah if he speaks face to face with the person who he wants to invite.
