TABLIGH JAMAAT AND PARENTS

Q. In Bangladesh, the Qoumi Ulama-Keraam are the supporters of Shura-e-Nezaam of Tablig Jamaat. They have totally rejected the Sa’d group members who are described as the ‘ITA’ATI GROUP’ in Bangladesh.
One of my friends is a supporter of the Sa’d group. But his parents are with the Shura-eNezaam of the Tablig Jamaat. His parents are very much upset with him due to his being with the Sa’d group.
Considering both groups are the same, is it permissible for the son /daughter to be an active member / supporter of the Sa’d group, thus upsetting the parents? Will the son / daughter be guilty of disobeying the parents?
A. The better and correct option is not to be a supporter of any of the two Tablighi Jamaat factions. Both factions are astray and soiled with ghulu’ (haraam extremism). Nafsaaniyat has gripped them, and is directing both groups. They are prepared to kill each other.
In this corrupt haraam scenario the safety of one’s Imaan and Akhlaaq is to steer clear of both groups. Do not participate in their shenanigans. You may sit in the bayaans of any group without being a supporter of either group.
The son / daughter will be guilty of sin for disobeying the orders of parents who prohibit their child from being a supporter of either faction. In this case it is not an issue of Haqq versus Baatil. It is a case of nafs versus nafs, and both groups are astray.
When Jihaad is not Fardh-e-Ain, then for even this great and wonderful Ibaadat, the son may not embark on it without the consent of his parents.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) himself had refused consent for participation in Jihaad out of consideration for parents. If any parent refuses permission, then it will be haraam to participate in a Jihaad which is not Fardh-eAin. Relative to Jihaad, the Tabligh Jamaat as it stands today, has absolutely no Shar’i status.
It is haraam to participate in its activities without parental consent.
