Doing Deeni work under the supervision of someone who is well grounded in Deen

Q: According to the Hadith "al Quranu hujjatun laka au alaika". If I go from place to place reminding my brothers and my self regarding Deeni tenets, will this ayat alone somehow be sufficient for my immediate salvation? Or will I be given the ability to fully act according to Deen by Barkat of this or any other ayat with steadfastness?

I am afraid you are going to answer that if I do not act on the remaining verses but stick to one Quranic verse, the bad will out weigh the good and the Quran will be proof against me.

A: In deeni work, it is important that we do it under the supervision of someone who is well grounded. If you are not well grounded and try to do things independently you may do much harm.

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