Resolutions of the Tablighi Jama’at [Nizamuddin Markaz Dispute]

[Majlisul Ulama]

By  the  Grace  of Allah  Ta’aala,  the  nine  elders  of  the  Shura  were  gathered  from  the  4th to  the  13th  of November,  the  3rd  to  the 12th  of Safar 1438,  on  the  occasion  of the  Raiwind  ijtima.  They  considered that  the  following would  be  useful  in  promoting this  noble  effort in  the  entire  Ummah  of Muhammad  sallallahu  alayhi wa sallam,  and  in practically  engaging  every  individual of this Ummah in  this  effort.

It  is  very  important to  maintain  the  pattern  that preserves  the  fundamentals  and  the  principles  of the  work  on  which  Mawlana Ilyas  Sahib,  Mawlana Yusuf Sahib  and  Mawlana In’aam  al-Hasan  Sahib founded  the  work  and  carried  it  on,  and  which  led to  the ways  of  effort on  which  the  hearts  of  the entire  Ummah  were  united.

The  elders  of  the  Shura  advised  the  following points  to  be  necessary  and  beneficial  when  the responsible  brothers  of  various  countries  enquired regarding  certain  difficulties  they  were  facing while  working in  the  present  situation  (of differences  of opinion):

1.  The matters  (Umoor) regarding  the  work  in various  countries  should  only  be  taken  up when  most  of  the  elders  of  Shura  are present.  Currently  such  occasions are during the  Raiwind  Ijtima  and  the  Tongi Ijjtima.

2. Instead  of  putting  these  matters  (umoor)  to an  individual  of  this  Shura,  these  should  be presented  collectively  before  the  entire Shura,  and  in  case  of  differences,  the majority  decision  should  prevail.

3. It  is  very  important  for brothers  doing the work  in  various  countries  to  spend  their annual time  in  this  environment  (of India, Pakistan  and  Bangladesh).  For  this  purpose it was  decided  that  the  brothers  of  various countries  should  spend  their  yearly  time one year  in  their  own  countries,  the  next  in  the three countries,  and  the third  year in  other  countries  (as  per  mashwara).

The gatherings  (Jod)  of  responsible brothers  from  various  countries  at Nizamuddin  once  in  two  years  were started  due  to  the  illness  of  Mawlana In’am  al-Hasan  Sahib.  This  is  now  no longer needed. Instead, it is more useful that the brothers spend their time in this environment according to the three-yearly program described above.

4. In order to bring the work on correct and strong pattern, it should be tried that each masjid takes out the complete jamaat of their own masjid.The responsible brothers of various countries should send the kawaif of their jamaats to the Shura and the jamaats should be sent when the Shura agrees to it. The routes for these jamaats should be taken from the responsible brothers of the respective countries to which these jamaats are being sent.

5. When there is a need of immediate response to matters arising during the year, the  responsible brothers should turn to the members of the Shura.

6. Similarly, the Shura should be contacted whenever there is a need to decide the dates for Itjimas and Jors in their countries.

7. Likewise, for demanding the jamaats from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh to attend the country Jors and Ijtimas, the Shura should be contacted.

In future, the letters regarding the matters arising in the countries should be addressed only to these elders and a copy should be sent to Raiwind.

May Allah grant us the best guidance in all the matters and accept these efforts as means for the guidance of the entire Ummah.. Aameen.

6th Safar, 1438 7th Nov, 2016

My dear Mohammad Saad Sallamahu

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

We hope that you are well, by Allah’s favor.

Respected Haji Abdul Wahab Sahib spoke in a gathering of responsible brothers of the countries yesterday, November 6, 2016. He drew the attention of all workers to going to Nizamuddin. In addition he especially spoke of some fundamental matters.

1. “In the mashwara that took place upon Hazrat Ji Mawlana Inaamul Hasan Sahib’s demise, his entire Shura had agreed that the work will proceed by mashwara and there will be no Ameer, and there will be no bay’at in Nizamuddin.”

2. (Haji Sahib further stated that) “on the occasion of previous ijtima in Nov 2015, I had completed the Shoora with the mashwara of brothers and signed it after reciting ‘Allahumma khir lee wakhtar lee’ 101 times.”

3. (He said:) “Only those things that the entire Shura agrees upon should be promoted.”

4. (Haji Sahib said:) “In the time of Maulana Yusuf R.A., when the brothers from different countries brought their matters, Maulana Yusuf R.A. used to say: ’Some of our mashwara brothers are in Makkah Mukarramah, some in Madinah Munawwarah and some in Pakistan. We shall take up these matters in mashwara when we get together.’ In the time of Maulana Inaamul Hasan Sahib rahmatullah alayh, the brothers of the countries were told to write their matters to Nizamuddin and send a copy to Raiwind. Maulana Inaamul Hasan rahmatullah alayh used to decide only after taking our opinion. Now, the brothers from India don’t even ask us our opinion. For years we have been making sabr and istighfar.”

From these statements of Haji Sb, it is clear that the work has to be done on the pattern of the elders, and there should be no addition or modification without the consensus of the Shoora.

You sign the letter related to the completion of Shoora. As per Haji Sahib’s previous letter of January 4, 2016, those five Nizamuddin brothers taken in the Shoora should also be “faisal” by rotation one after the other regarding matters in  Nizamuddin.

On the above points, there is a consensus of the 9 brothers of Shoora present here. If you were to accept these points, they would gladly come to Nizamuddin.

Insha Allah, working in this manner will lead to mutual love and unity and progress in the work. May Allah Ta’ala accept all of us and give us the Taufeeq to carry on this work according to his pleasure. Aameen.

Note: Haji Sahib further said that the brothers of Nizamuddin and Raiwind should cry profusely before Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala in their supplications.
