I live in Australia. The Tabligh Jamaat Effort changed the Lives of Most of the Muslims in Australia.
(Have you done a proper survey of ‘most of the Muslims’ in Australia? If yes, please forward the results of your survey. –The Majlis)
Thousand of muslims have changed their ways from the road to Jahannum to the Road towards the mercy of Allah. Hundreds of Mosques are the result of the efforts of Tabligh. Many Ulama from South Africa have come to Australia to serve as PAID ulema by members of Tabligh. The Tabilgh has increased Fiqr for all Humanity and we send Jamaats to all countries of the world and our Jamaats consist of members from 31 Countries. Very few if any, South Africans). (Our advice is that the jamaats should work only within the borders of Australia, and not waste money on globe-trotting unnecessarily. There is no need for Australians to do tabligh, Tabligh Jamaat style, in other countries. There are ample folk in all countries for this type of tabligh. – The Majlis
Our Amir is Egyptian who has spend his last 50 Years establishing Madrassas, Darul Ulooms and still sending Jamaats to the world and neighbouring Islands and reviving Islam. We assure you that the South African Jamaats coming to Australia are very embarrassing and a Poor example of the Beautiful Work of Tabligh. (We are in full agreement with you on this point. They are in fact hoodlums, puffed with pride and arrogance. They despise even great Ulama and Auliya who are not associated with their specific tabligh methodology which is NOT Sunnah. They have even exacerbated the hostility between the two Tablighi baatil factions.- The Majlis)
I humbly request that you restrict your analysis and Critic of the South African Tabligh to the South African context. (Our comments appear hereunder – The Majlis)
There are now 3 Groups in Jamaat: the deviant Saad Group, the Conflicting Laat Group, and the group in Australia who are just simply adhering to Dawah in all its Forms as was originally guided by Nizamudin but now operates only in guidance from Allah and Rasoolallah (saw). (What is the meaning of ‘saw’? You are a Tablighi and supposed to have greater respect and honour for Rasulullah –Sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Is it then too onerous to write: Sallallahu alayhi wasallam? Why content yourself with the drivel of ‘saw’? In terms of your diagnosis there should be four Tablighi groups. You have omitted the Raiwand deviated group. – The Majlis).
Yes, we are removing any Bidah practises of Tabligh, as new participants are from various countries and Background, including Sheikh Worship etc, and the worst of the Ulema-e-soo we find are from South Africa. (Alhamdulillah! You have diagnosed correctly. The molvis of South Africa and the molvis of the U.K. are most certainly the worst ulama -e-soo’ under the “canopy of the sky” as mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam). They are making a stinking, wretched hogwash of the Deen with their shaitaaniyat and nafsaaniyat. Most of these ‘muftis’ are maajinmoron fellows who are unable to distinguish between right and left, light and darkness. – The Majlis)
May Allah save the Umma from Shirk inshallah and having to ask everyone involved in the Efforts of Tabilgh and Deen for Forgiveness as Not All of us involved in Tabligh are Bereft of Sunnah and love of Allah or in Need of Improvement and Guidance from Allah.
Please send a Delegation to Australia to look on the Gound level inshallah.
Was Salaam (End of the Brother’s lament)
You are the first Tablighi in all the decades of our life who has conceded that there is Bid’ah in the Tabligh Jamaat. In fact, Bid’ah and Ghulu’ (haraam bigotry) are rife in the Jamaat. It is this evil which has split the Jamaat into two hostile factions, each one waging shaitaani ‘jihad’ against the other. Our criticism cannot be restricted to the South African scenario. The deviance of the Jamaat exists in other countries as well, not only in South Africa. It is at its height in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and United Kingdom. In the U.S.A. as well as other countries too, the evil of the split initiated by Sa’d has been imported.
If the Australian Tabligh Jamaat is as you have described, then you are most fortunate for not having been dragged into the cauldron of the shaitaaniyyat in which the Jamaat is floundering. Continue the good work on the six principles of the original Founder of the Jamaat. Abstain totally from ghulu’. There are numerous excesses and haraam acts of the Tabligh Jamaat from which it is imperative to abstain. The work of the Jamaat will be beneficial only if it is retained within the confines of the Shariah. It is essential that Jamaatis understand that the Tabligh Jamaat is not the sole repository of Najaat (Salvation) as is being satanically propagated. The haraam extremism prevailing among the rank and file is actually the teaching emanating from the elders of the Jamaat. Stupid laymen acquit themselves as if they are great ‘ulama’. The degree of arrogance and pride in the Tabligh jamaat is appalling and lamentable.
Your comment regarding the South African ulama is 100% correct. However, this rotten condition applies to almost all the ulama of all countries in this era. In terms of the description provided by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), “they are the worst of people under the canopy of the sky”. They betray the Deen, the Ummah, Allah Ta’ala and His Rasool (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) with their haraam, stupid fatwas of liberalism designed for bootlicking to fulfil the demands of hubb-e-jah (love of fame) and hubb-e-maal (love of wealth). Thus they distort and mutilate the Shariah to justify their convoluted ideas and to argue away the prohibitions of Allah Ta’ala. They ruin the Imaan and Akhlaaq of the masses. The Tabligh Jamaat has also been performing this evil function. The Jamaat has become notorious for its ghulu’. Beware of such bigotry. Remain rigidly clinging to your six principles. The Tabligh Jamaat of this era has added an unwritten principle to their six. The seventh principle is Ihaanatul Muslim, i.e. to disgrace Muslims. Formerly they directed this shaitaaniyyat to those Ulama, even to Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh), who are not associated with their specific tabligh methodology. They slanderously accused great Ulama of being anti-Tabligh. That is because they themselves do not understand the meaning of Tabligh.
As long as you remain within the limits of the Shariah, you will, InshaAllah, be successful in your efforts and Allah Ta’ala will then reward you abundantly. Wassalaam
