There were atheists and non-believers even in the early centuries of Islam. Many of the early Muslims engaged in discussions and debates with them regarding faith, religion, and belief in God.
Here, Shaykh Faraz Rabbani shares two stories from great early Muslims—Imam Abu Hanifa (founder of the Hanafi school of law) and Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq (one of the great descendants of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and a recognized authority for both Sunnis and Shias)—on how they talked to people in ways the individuals could relate to, using convincing, tangible ways to convey the truth of belief in One God. From the SeekersHub online course on the Essentials of Islamic Belief.
