Tablighi Jamaat Response to Criticism and Allegation

Tablighi Jamaat Response to criticism and Allegation

Maulana Ilyas remarked (Discourse of Maulana Ilyas Page no 25)
 "Brothers must remember well that if their da'wah (invitation) is not accepted and instead they are insulted,abused or baseless allegations are made against them .  They should not become despondent and frustrated.

Tabligh is a movement and proper understanding of a movement only can be attained in the path of Allah. 
There are two types of Criticisers

1.First Type of criticiser

They have not seen the work from close/has not gone in the path of Allah with Tabligh.

And their criticism is based on 
1.There understanding from distance or seeing some individual wrong of a particular person in his locality who has done something wrong.

2.Reading/listening some books who give one sided picture with some criticism and baseless allegations.
They give mild to Hard Advice/criticise/raise doubts.

These are people with correct intention and heart
they have right to get their confusion clarified about the blessed work of tabligh.


1.The Best way for them to go in the path of Allah,Insha Allah they will understand and get their confusion clarified.

2.If still after going in Jammat they could not understand fully and still confused they are not responsible for their Judgement of Error and Allah will Pardon them.(Insha Allah) 

3.But if they are criticising without going in the path of Allah they are not doing justice,they should be fearful from Allah as Allah will certinly ask from them.

2. The second Group is there who criticise because of Group Mentality.
Although Tablighi Jamaat has kept the work free from any specific ideology OF,........
Rather for jurispreudence issue also they will advice to consult your own Ulema..........

you will find in it people of all ahle sunnat wal jamaat  Mazhabs/Maslaks e.g. Hanafi,Shafaee, Hanbali,etc ......and of all nationality and race......people of all social strata......ranging from laborers/Hawkers to celebrities.........

The cord of boundation for Tablighi Jamaat are following
 1.Love Passion mercy for all mankind including Non Muslims for their success in the life after death.Striving for paradise for all.
2.How each human being be saved from the fire of hell................
3.Islam,the final message of Almighty to mankind........striving to follow the commands of Allah..........
Striving to follow the Path of Hazrat Muhammad S A.W........

Tablighi Jamaat call is very simple and its programme is concerned to the basic of deen 
In the base of deen there is no difference of opinion among the groups of Ahle sunnat Wal Jamaat

Right from beginning Maulan Ilyas has stressed that this work should be of all muslims and he strictly Prohibited to take his name also....................He was a simple Alim e Deen has not written any article or Fatwa.......
I have heared from a reliable source that one Jamaat went to a Place and wrote a letter mentioning...........Here............(group name) is very strong..........The Elders at Nizamuddin immediately orderd the Jamaat to return back.......They said that you have divided the Ummah and now you cannot work..............Wallah........

As Maulana Ilyas by whom Allah revived the work was
An HANAFI, Studied at Darul Uloom Deoband, was a Person from Tasawwuf..........................................

so all those who are opposed to HANAFI , DEOBAND or Sufism  .............................they criticize Tablighi Jamaat  ......................

On Internet you will find innumerable websites from people of this category who are allergic to HANAFIS/DEOBANDIS/SUFISM...............

that will publish articles with different names

Accusition of  being Sufi Aqeedah, bigoted Hanafis, Sufis, Deobandis, Wahabis..........Tablighi Jamaat Bidah, Shirk,.......Sometimes Kufr.................Tablighi Jmaat Deviated, fault, Tablighi Jamaat Exposed, Tablighi Jamaat controversy...

An Special Pattern on different websites/Forum...............
One group/website/forum  will criticize saying they are Sufi that's why they are wrong...................
Other Group//website/forum will criticize saying they are not Sufi thats why they are wrong...............
(This itself is suggesting that these are two extremes among Muslims groups and also indicating that Tabligh has taken good thing from Tasawwuf and has left the innovations...........)

What Response/Answer about these criticism allegations.????????

No Answer ............................Should be given......

Day of Judgment is very near..........all our actions and words will be judged on the day of Qiyamah.........Zarrah Barabar khair or Shar ka Faisla hona Hai...........
If this world would have been eternal that would necessiated the response.......This world is going to end very soon dont worry at all...........

 We dont believe in much defending 
because of two reason.

  1. If You are well/ are righteous so any criticism/proof/jealousy will not do any harm to you as Allah decision is absolutely free from any influence and error of judgment and he will be glorified and will have eternal success. The only loss will be the person making allegations.
  2. If the fact is contrary/ You are on wrong Path whatever be the defence and glorification it is not going to help anyway in Akhrat.
    You can save your face in this world .................but not in Akhirah.........

Just clear the facts (that you have confirmed from ground) in defence and put forward to others if they accept it is good, if they reject leave the matter for Allah.Who is the final judge.

We are not telling anything over this type of group mentality.........................they must be having their answer ready for the day of Judgement as Allah will certainly ask them because it will come on both HUQUQULLAH and HUQUQULIBAD. 
May Allah save all of us from the demand of the day of Qiyamah. 

Stand of Common Tablighi worker at ground for criticism and allegation.....
Those who are really doing the effort of Dawah at ground for them all praise and criticism is alike........They want Praise and reward only from Allah................On of brother said.......We do not consider it a separate group so no Point of any fame/defame.....They pray for all mankind and consider everyone as their brother and sisters...............
Ek dilchasp Mazmoon Jo ek Kitab se liya gaya hai........

 تبلیغی جماعت کوئی الگ جماعت نہیں ہے ، یہ مسلمانوں کی ایک ایمانی تحریک ہے ، اس کا کوئی نام نہیں رکھا گیا ، لیکن بر صغیر کے لوگوں نے اس کو اسی نام سے پکارا اور یہ اتنا مشہور ہوا کہ بعض دفعہ تبلیغ سے جڑے لوگ بھی اس کو اسی نام سے پکارتے ہیں 
، یہ حضرات اپنے کام میں اخلاص واستخلاص کے ساتھ لگے رہتے ہیں ، اور اختلافی اور فروعی مسائل میں نہیں پڑتے ۔ بلکہ جو صفِ اول کا کام کرنے والا ساتھی ہوگا اسے اگر آپ کسی بحث میں شامل کرنا چاہیں تو بھی آسانی سے شامل نہیں ہوگا۔ (ہاں جو حضرات کام میں جڑے رہتے ہیں ، لیکن پورے نظام عمل کے پابندنہیں ہوتے ، وہ اس طرح کی بحثوں میں شامل ہوسکتے ہیں )
 اب سے لگ بھگ پانچ سال قبل سہ روزہ دعوت جو جماعت اسلامی کا اخبار ہے ، اس نے ہندوستانی مسلمان نمبر شائع کیا تھا، جس میں تبلیغی جماعت پر بھی ایک مضمون تھا ، اس کے اداریے میں لکھا تھا کہ اس مضمون کے سلسلے میں، اور ان سے اپنے بارے میں ایک مضمون کی درخواست کی گئی ، لیکن کوئی مضمون کو لکھنے کے لیے تیار نہیں ہوا۔ لہٰذا تبلیغی جماعت کے بارے میں مضمون کسی اور کی طرف سے لکھا گیا۔ کہنے کا مطلب یہ ہوا کہ وہ سوال وجواب کے معاملات وغیرہ سے دور رہنا پسند کرتے ہیں۔

 مجھے خود بھی ان کا یہ موقف پوری طرح سمجھ میں نہیں آیا، میں نے دعوت کے کام کے

 ایک پرانے ساتھی سے اس کی وجہ پوچھی تو کافی اصرار پر انہوں نے بتایا :
 (۱) ہر خیر وشر کا فیصلہ قیامت کے میدان میں ہونا ہے ، اللہ تعالیٰ سب سے بڑے فیصلہ کرنے والے ہیں ، وہ سب ظاہر وباطن کو جاننے والے ہیں ، اس لیے دنیا والوں کو جواب دے کر مطمئن کر بھی دیا تو کیا فائدہ حاصل ہوا ۔ اصل فیصلہ تو قیامت کے میدان میں ہے ۔

(۲) میں نے ان سے کہا کہ الزامات سے آپ کی بدنامی ہوسکتی ہے ، انہوں نے کہا کہ ہماری 
کوئی الگ جماعت ہے ہی نہیں ، تو ہماری جماعت کے نام یا بدنام کو کوئی سوال ہی نہیں ۔ رہی افراد کی بدنامی تو ہماری حیثیت ہی کیا ہے کہ ہم اس کا غم لے کر بیٹھیں۔
 (۳) میں نے کہا لیکن چند غلط فہمیوں کی وجہ سے بہت سے لوگ اس اہم خیر کے کام اور مؤثر دعوت سے دور ہوسکتے ہیں ، یا عملی طور پر حصہ نہیں لے پارہے ہیں ، اس لیے اس کو دور کرنا چاہیے۔
 جواب:۔ غلط فہمی تھوڑے لوگوں میں ہے ۔ اکثریت کام کو خیر مانتی ہے ، اس سے محبت کرتی ہے ، اس کی ستائش کرتی ہے اور اس میں حصہ لیتی ہے ۔ تبھی تو اجتماعات میں اتنی کثیر تعداد میں شریک ہوتی ہے ، کہ لوگ حج کے بعد مسلمانوں کے سب سے بڑے اجتماع سے تعبیر کرتے ہیں۔ جب کہ اجتماعات کے لیے نہ کوئی پوسٹر لگتا ہے ، نہ بینر شائع ہوتا ہے ، نہ الیکٹرانک میڈیا یا پرنٹ میڈیا میں اشتہار ہوتا ہے ۔ لوگ اپنے خرچ پر اور اپنی تکلیف اور آرام برداشت کرکے شریک ہوتے ہیں۔
 اور جو لوگ غلط فہمی کا شکار ہیں ، ان میں دو طرح کے لوگ ہیں۔ ایک تعداد ایسے لوگوں کی ہے جو مخلص ہیں ، اور ان کا اجتہاد ہے اور اخلاص کے ساتھ مخالفت کررہے ہیں ، تو انشاء اللہ اخلاص کی وجہ سے ان کو مخالفت کرنے کے بعد بھی کوئی نقصان اور گناہ نہیں ہوگا ، کیونکہ اس میں ان کا نفس شامل نہیں ہے ۔
 دوسرے کچھ لوگ ایسے ہیں کہ انہوں نے طے کر رکھا ہے کہ کہ ماننا نہیں ہے جیسے 2+2=4ہوتا ہے ، لیکن کوئی کہے کہ میں نہیں مانتا کہ یہ چار ہوتا ہے تو ایسے لوگوں کا کوئی علاج نہیں ہے ۔ اور ان کو کوئی نہیں سمجھا سکتا۔
 رہی بات الزامات کا جواب دینے کی تو بہت سے لوگوں نے ان الزامات کے جوابات بہت مدلل اور تشفی بخش دیے ہیں ، لیکن چونکہ یہ جوابات ایک منظم اندا ز میں نہیں دیے گئے ہیں اس لیے ایک جگہ موجود نہیں ہیں۔ جوابات لوگوں نے الگ الگ انفرادی طور پر دیے ہیں ، اس لیے اس کا ایک جگہ ملنا مشکل ہوتا ہے ، لیکن تمام اعتراضات کے بہت کافی وشافی 
جوابات موجود ہیں۔

WHAT  IS  THE     ELDERS     (OF TABLIGH)    STAND   ON      CRITICISM ????????????

The Tablighi Jamaat elders (other call leaders) at Markaz Hazrat Nizamuddin, Delhi,India have a

written policy of not indulging in any argument and counterarguement and defence in the case of criticism and allegation.

Maulana Inamul Hasan (R.A.)(died 1995) the former Amir of Tableeghi Jamaat has said.

"It is better that in case the objections and allegation if they are correct, rectify them . 

Whereas if they are wrong ,have patience (leave the matter to Allah)."

(Insight into dawah and its understanding & cognition  PAGE NO 181          translation of urdu book Dawat ki Faham o baseerat or uska Idrak) 

MAULANA has further said.....

"If you reply they will give a rejoinder. You reply again they will issue another rejoinder. It will continue like this and no purpose will be served."

Refrence:Insight into dawah and its understanding & cognition PAGE NO 181)
They might be deriving guidance from This Hadith of Beloved Prophet S.A.W.

Maulana Ilyas the Reviver of Tablighi Movement has Remarked.

Maulana Ilyas remarked (Discourse of Maulana Ilyas Page no 25)

 "Our workers must remember well that if their da'wah (invitation) is not accepted and instead they are insulted,abused or baseless allegations are made against them .  
They should not become despondent and frustrated.

On such an occasion they should remember that this was the sunnat (established way) and heritage of the Arnbiya (alayhiqus salaam), especially that of our Nabi Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa
sallam). Where does everyone get the good fortune of being belittled
and degraded in the path of Allah?

And wherever they are welcomed and honoured, they should appreciate
this and
when people listen with enthusiasm to their talks it must be
considered a favour from ,Allah and at no time should they be
indifferent to these favours. It should be considered a great favour to
serve and teach these people even if they may be considered to be of the
 lower classes. In the Quran we are reminded of this in the ayat:
He f m e d d turned away, when the blind approached him for

At the same time one must keep a check on the deception of one's own
nafs. The nafs should not consider this acceptance as its own
 perfection. This may lead to the fitnah (cormption)_of hero worship.
 Therefore one should always be on one's guard.

MAULANA MAHMUDUL HASAN the Chief Mufti of Darul Uloom Deoband was an active supporters of Tabligh. Once he opined like on tabligh page no 16.


When you do the work of Dawah encourage others to do good, you should remember everyone is not going to listen open heartedly.  

Some are going to oppose you also.
It is for this very reason that in this path one gets to take lesson from the enemy 
(i.e. from the opposition and from those who oppose this effort).

You will meet ten different people, will make ten different comments.

Someone will say,

Grave Worshiper
and Whatever they want..............
They have a tongue and Allah has given liberation in the world So remain ready for many more..................harsh comments will be made.

When listening to all of this, you will start pondering that what is wrong with me?????????????What are my weaknesses?????????????? 

Then you will search for those shortcomings found within you and try to eliminate them.

Nevertheless, in this path you will attain the suh’bah (companionship) of the pious, you will obtain good friends and you will receive the opportunity to take lesson from the enemy.

Books and Articles from Tabligh Answering   Allegations and Criticism.

According to their policy Tabligh elders never indulge in any arguement and counterarguement.

So there is no Book or Reply from Tablighi Jamaat elders is Available.

Whatever articles and writing for clarification of doubts and allegation has been written are from brothers who has written individually.

Although these are not systematic writing but it is sufficient in written form also who want to know truth.Those who are for GROUP MENTALITY FOR THEM IT IS PROBLEM AND NOT SUFFICIENT.

Although the understanding the work of Tabligh can only be in the path of Allah.Through articles they can partially understand the reality of doubts and allegation.

But those who work for Allah, Allah helps them Unexpectedly.

There is general perception that Salafi Brothers remain against Tabligh.
(Although it is not always true I personally know many Salafi brothers actively with the work of Tabligh.)

but it is 
Allah Power and mercy that the only complete book clearing allegation against Tabligh has been written by a Salafi Alim

1. Shaikh Abu Bakar Jabir Al Jazairi

  Who was Teacher at Masjid e Nabwi Madeena Munawwara, who travelled to Europe and Africa and got first hand information of Tabligh work and finally

has written book in Arabic which has been translated in urdu Titled “Tablighi Jamaat ka Belag Jaeza” (“An Unbiased study of Tablighi Jamaat”.published by Al Markazul Arabi Lilkitab,U.A.E.)

This book is available at following link


In every criticism there is a either a lesson or
reward for Akhirah........................if someone is pointing out your short coming actually he is helping you. Rectify it as told by Maulana Inamul Hasan sb also.

If it is baseless allegation. Just do Sabar 

Because if you will do sabr (Patience) on baseless allegation Allah will surely give you Reward.

Be sure of it . (InshaAllah I will quote the Hadith in this regard Later on Jazakallah)
