as salaamu alaikum
dear hazrat
regarding the following q&a in the latest majlis
Q. A hafiz who is not a Molvi, gives bayaans before the Jumuah Khutbah on the subject of Islaah of the Nafs. Is it permissible for a non-Aalim to give such talks in the Musjid?
A. It is haraam for a jaahil to stand up in the Musjid to give a bayaan. His bloated nafs impels him to create an image of Ilm for himself. He prepares his abode in Jahannam with his nafsaani bayaans. A layman may not deliver bayaans to the public.
The Hadith prohibits laymen from giving lectures. This chap will most assuredly mislead other juhala. It is mentioned in the Hadith that in the era close to Qiyaamah, the jaahil will issue fatwas to the juhala masses and all of them will be astray

does this prohibition of a layman giving talks in the masjid extend to the talks given in the masjid by the tabligh jamaat?
can one correctly conclude that only if a proper maulana is in the jamaat group that he and only he can give the bayan and it is improper for the other members to take turns giving the bayans as it is usually done nowadays?

Respected Brother,

Yes, the prohibition to give public bayaans also refers to the Tabligh Jamaat. If there is no Aalim, the chap should only read from the kitaab without making any comment.
