His Missionary Approach in Life[edit]

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