Should we call people who do actions of Shirk to Tawheed only?

In the regions where there are shrines and people visit graves, should we call them to Tawheed only, or should we call them to Tawheed and all the matters of religion, such as doing the salaah properly and other matters? Does the same also apply in cases where people are not doing actions of Shirk but are committing some sins?

Praise be to Allaah. 

When making da’wah, it is essential to pay attention to the circumstances of the people whom one is calling. If they have fallen into Shirk, then we should start by forbidding Shirk and enjoining Tawheed, then enjoin all the other matters of religion. Whoever is free of Shirk but is still committing some sins should be told not to commit those sins, and should be enjoined to repent.
