“Tabligh Jama’at is on Course to Becoming a New Sect” – Darul Uloom Deoband

“Many issues of a similar nature have constrained not only Mufti Saeed Sahib Paalanpuri, but also other Ulama and Buzrugaan-e-Deen to say that the Tabligh Jamaat is on course to becoming a new sect. Leaving aside the methodology of the Qur’aan and Hadith they are following their own methodology and innovated ‘deen’.”

Darul Uloom  Deoband Warning Fatwa Regarding Tabligh Jama’at 

Those who have had their heads, necks and feet buried deep in the sand with regards to repeated warnings and Naseehat from the Ulama-e-Haqq to the Tabligh Jama’at over the past few years, should, at the least, pay some heed to the following Fatwa issued by Darul Uloom Deoband on September 3, 2016:

QUESTION

Is Mufti Saeed Ahmad Paalanpuri against the Tabligh Jamaat or not? The reason why I am asking is that I received a message that it is his Fatwa, that the Tabligh Jamaat is dressing itself in the costume of another sect. Should I now dissociate from the Jamaat? For a month now I am in a quandary as to what is right and what is wrong. I can’t even sleep at night. I am worried. I don’t know what my objective should be. Please guide me.

RESPONSE

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Neither is Mufti Saeed Ahmad Sahib nor any Aalim of Darul Uloom Deoband against the Tabligh Jamaat. Yes, some Tabligh members have deviated and indulged in ghuluw (haraam fanaticism). They are speaking a lot of errant nonsense.

For example:

1. They apply Aayaat of the Qur’aan purely referring to Jihaad, to Tabligh work. This is another form of Tahreef (interpolation).

2. The Madaaris of Islam are redundant and of no benefit. Ilm Deen is acquired by going out with the Jamaat.

3. What have the Ulama done until now? They have done nothing. Whatever has spread of Deen has not been by the hands of the Ulama, rather it has spread through the Tabligh Jamaat. The Ulama have done 4% of work whilst the Jamaat Brothers 96%. Furthermore, the Ulama have not done work for the sake of Allah, but for salaries.

4. If any Aalim gives Tafseer of the Qur’aan they stop him and say that only Fadhaail A’maal should be read; no other kitaab should be read.

5. There is no need for Taqwa and Tazkiyah Nafs. By going out with the Jamaat all these will be achieved.

6. They do not keep any Aalim as Imaam or Mudarris who has not given one year out with the Jamaat. If unknowingly such an Aalim is kept and thereafter it becomes known that he did not go out for a year, they remove him from Imaamate and Teaching. They do not give their daughters in marriage to him.

7. They despise the Ulama. They debate with them.

8. Whoever has not given a chillah is not thought of as a Deendaar, in fact not even as a Muslim.

9. Whoever does not join the customary Nizaamuddeen Tabligh, no matter how much Deeni service he may have done, they do not consider that to be Deeni work.

Many issues of a similar nature have constrained not only Mufti Saeed Sahib Paalanpuri, but also other Ulama and Buzrugaan-e-Deen to say that the Tabligh Jamaat is on course of becoming a new sect. Leaving aside the methodology of the Qur’aan and Hadith they are following their own methodology and innovated ‘deen’.

Observing all these developments intelligent and pious people of the Deen are really concerned. Observing developments of this nature in the Markaz of Nizaamuddeen, responsible members of the Tabligh Jamaat have not only become concerned, they have distanced themselves. This is the result of deviating from the Balanced Path.

Do not leave the work of the Jamaat. Do continue with the work. However, do not deviate from the Balanced Way. Do the work in the manner and according to the Usool which Hadhrat Maulana Ilyaas Sahib had laid down for this work. Insha-Allah, then no one will point fingers.

  1. Mujtaba Tariq

    1. I don’t know about India, But in Pakistan point #1 is here and reference is taken from Shaikh ul Hadith (RehmatUllah Aleihe) tafseer of Surah Saf 2nd ruku’ in Fadhail e Aamal.
    2,3. Points number 2 and 3 are nonexistent Alhamdulillah.
    4. Point number 4 is very rare in some less educated areas .
    5. Point number 5 is present in Old Workers but they say that many new people who join tabligh then start going to a Sheikh and stop continuing Tablighi Aamal, and later on slip from Sheikh’s Majalis. And many Mashaikhs I know prohibit their Mureeds to go in Tabligh. Best Solution to me is that you engage with a Sheikh who also supports Tabligh and Alhamdulillah it is going on well in Karachi, Pakistan.
    6. Only the first sentence of Point number 6 is correct.
    7. Point number 7 It is present in some old workers.
    8. Point​ number 8 is half correct, he is NOT considered a Kaafir.
    9. Point number 9 is Present in some people.

    Time is nearing its ending, May Allah Subhaanahu Wa Taa’ala revive His Deen and May Allah Subhaanahu Wa Taa’ala Use us in reviving It.
