Discussing secondary issues of Islam with a non-Muslim

Q: A non Muslim has asked me when someone dies what is the reason for Muslims burying the body so quickly? What is the correct reason or answer to respond to them?


A: When he has not embraced Islam and has not accepted the fundamental beliefs and actions of Islam, then it is pointless discussing secondary issues of Deen with him.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
