TARIQ JAMEEL, MENK AND ZULFIQAR – JUHALA ‘SCHOLARS FOR DOLLARS’
A BROTHER WHO WAS FORMERLY AN ARDENT FOLLOWER OF THESE ‘SCHOLARS’ OF BAATIL WHO RUIN THE AKHLAAQ AND IMAAN OF THE IGNORANT AND UNWARY, WRITES:
“I was very disturbed with a few writings about Maulana Tariq Jameel, Mufti Ismail Menk and Peer Zulfiqar saab because these were the scholars whose bayaans brought me towards deen and tableegh. I was a normal teenager studying in college with no inclination towards deen. No namaz, quran and even roza was name sake. Heard one of Maulana Tariq Jameels bayaans and that had an effect that i started sitting with the tableeghis in the local masjid and went for sehrozas.
However i noticed the celebrity status the scholars were having and when they came to the tableeghi markaz how difficult it was to meet them and how the awaam used to show off if they were they were able to meet ullama like Maulana Tariq Jameel. The whole environment of the markaz used to change as in the attention was towards the mehmaan khaana were the ullama were brought from the backdoor rather than the amaal in the markaz.
Recently Maulana Tariq Jameel came to Dubai (where i reside) and one of his students placed an ad on facebook that whoever wants to meet Maulana, please message on so and so number to arrange for the meeting. I messaged and got the below reply;
Regarding your query about Maulana Tariq Jameel. Please send your reason for meeting with Maulana via whatsapp at +923218849008 with your Name Country and question. Jzk, Nouman
It was after this i realised that your statements were so true. These people have become like a cult. They are destroying the purpose of Tableegh which is to invite people towards deen. Rather with this behaviour I’ve seen people going back to their old lives saying that all these Maulvis are doing drama. Many of my friends shaved their beards, threw their turbans and kurta shalwar. Came back to jeans, t shirts and hair styles.
I’ve had the same experience with Peer Zulfiqar saab. Their khulafa only keep in touch with you if you are an influential person or a person from which they can benefit in any form.
Even Mufti Ismail Menk. I see that when he comes and I request him for a meet, he stays with famous businessmen and people over here but no time for a normal person hence i have not been able to meet him.
After all of this i realised that you were true about this trend of celebrity ullamas.

The above is a verbatim reproduction of the Brother’s letter. Allah Ta’ala guides the sincere ones. They then open their eyes to see and understand the falsehood of the deceits, quacks and morons who pursue worldly objectives under Deeni guise.
