Conditions for the One Who Debates to Gain Good Deeds and Conditions for the One Who Debates Does Not Gain Good Deeds

"We can answer the question whether or not the debater gains good deeds in the following manner:

If aim of the both sides of the debate to canalize his opponent to the Haqq (truth) that he believes then both of them will gain good deeds due their Niyyah (intention) and their debate. It is because both of them cause the Haqq to come out (by debating). However, if both sides aim to beat and defeat his opponent -whether he is upon truth or not- then they both perform sin. If one of them aims to canalize his opponent to the Haqq and the other one aims to defeat his opponent then one will gain good deeds and the other performs sin.

If the aim of one or both of the opponents is to defeat his opponent while Allh clarified the truth by his opponent, he who persists upon falsehood performs sin. And if the other aimed to clarify the truth with the mercy of his Lord then he gains good deeds. If the one who aimed to defeat his opponent and then turns back from it then his performance of sin will end and he will gains good deeds. If he does not lean to the truth and persists on the falsehood, he will perform sin due to his Niyyah also due to being persistent upon the falsehood. He will be punished in Duny (worldly life) with the Tazr punishment. If he does not receive the Tazr punishment in Duny, he will be punished in the khirah (Hereafter) just like those who commit sin in Duny and do not receive the Tazr punishment.

If one of the opponents in the beginning had the Niyyah to accept the Haqq even if it was clarified by his opponent and persists upon the falsehood after his opponent clarified the truth for him then he will perform sin due to his persistence upon the falsehood. However he will gain good deeds due to his Niyyah in the beginning (i.e., accepting the Haqq even if it was clarified by his opponent).

The one who tries to humiliate his opponent during the debate by making fun of him and causes people to laugh at his opponent performs greater sin than the sin we mentioned above. It is because he performs sin of making fun of a Mumin on top of other sins we mentioned above. The best method for the intelligent ones is to not debate with such people so that he does not cause the performance of the sins we mentioned."
