Dissociation or Da'wah?
Question:

It is well known that it is compulsory to part company with the disobedient person, but if we wish to invite him to the right way what should we do? Should we be kind to that person and sit with him?
Answer:

Parting with a disobedient person is not something that is “well known” as the questioner claims, but parting from disobedience is what is well known. The only situation wherein it is allowed break off relations with a sinner is when there is a benefit in doing so – when he will desist because his nature does not permit him to bear reproach from others, in such circumstances, breaking relations is something desirable. Otherwise, no one should break off relations with him. As for sitting with him, being kind to him, and calling him back to guidance and Taqwa, then this is a desirable matter. But it is not allowed for someone to sit and talk with him, without caring about his disobedience.
