On Personal Devotional Acts and Da`wah Work

Answered by Sayyidi al-Ḥabīb `Umar bin Hafīẓ (may Allāh preserve him and benefit us by him).

I have a wird that I read regularly in secret. When I go out for da`wah I cannot conceal it. Should I read it or leave it?

You should not leave actions out of a desire to conceal them. In this situation, read what you are able to do, but focus on that which is most beneficial to the da`wah. Then you can make up anything you missed later on in secret.
