اعلم أن الكلام الخبيث السيء القبيح الذي قيل فيك، يضر صاحبه ولا يضرك

Know that the horrible words that were said about you harm the one who said them and not you.

The goals of dawah are to remove people from darkness and bring them to the light, to guide them to the truth so that they can accept it and be saved from the fire and the anger of Allah. (Also from the goals) are to remove a disbeliever from darkness and disbelief to the light and guidance. Likewise, removing an ignorant person from the darkness of ignorance to the light of knowledge, and additionally to remove a sinner from the darkness of his wickedness to the light of obedience, this is (indeed) the goal behind dawah.

There is no doubt that the house which the woman governs by affection, love and mercy, as well as with the Islamic upbringing and education, will have an effect upon the man – as he will become, by the permission of Allah, successful in his affairs, and be granted success in any action, from seeking knowledge, earning money in trade or agriculture or other than that from the difficult occupations.
—  Shaykh ‘Abd Al ‘Aziz ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) [Reference: at-Tuhfat al-Baaziyyah al-Fataawa an-Nisaaiyyah, Volume 1, Page 22]

The Angels have access to the unseen. They have way more knowledge than we do, they see the seen and the unseen. They even know more about ourselves because they write all our deeds down - the ones we know and the ones we forget about. They lock them all down, and even the Angels say “Master we have no knowledge, we don’t know anything.” The Angels don’t know anything? What do I know then? This puts the believer in his place. You don’t declare Allah’s greatness until you realise how low you are.

Whoever spends his time remembering Allah, reading the Quran, accompanying the righteous and distancing oneself from the heedless and the sinful, his heart would be in a good state and will soften, Allah the Elevated said: “It is with the remembrance of Allah that hearts find tranquility.”
