Question: In Bangladesh, A supporter of Moulana Sa’d, vindicating his stance, says:
“Luqmah is permissible to be given by the Muqtadi only. If the Imam takes the Lukmah of a person who is outside that salaah, the salaah will become invalid. In light of the above mas’alah, only the objections and naseehat of those individuals will be taken into consideration who are directly involved in the works of Tabligh Jamaat. So the objections and naseehat of those Ulema who are not directly involved in the works of Tabligh, will not be taken into consideration.”
Is this correct? Please comment.
(Lukmah means correcting the Imaam by a Muqtadi reciting the relevant portion of the Qiraa’t on which the Imaam faltered).
Answer (by Mujlisul Ulama):
The supporter of Molvi Sa’d speaks bunkum. He is a jaahil, hence acquits himself with jahaalat. What is his Shar’i daleel for the stupid principle he has fabricated? The analogy with Salaat is absolutely putrid and baseless. He should produce a daleel from the Sources of the Shariah as expounded by the Fuqaha to substantiate his stupidity.
In terms of his baseless principle, a person who is not involved in prostitution should not give naseehat to those who are engaging in this abomination. A person not involved in the liquor industry, should not give naseehat to those who manufacture, sell and consume alcohol. Those not worshipping idols should not give naseehat to idolaters because they are not involved in idolatry. The Ulama who are not devouring riba and who condemn riba and the banking industry should not give naseehat to the Muslim bankers because they (the Ulama) are not involved in banking.
In terms of the ridiculous principle forged by the nafs of this person, the entire department of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar will cease operating because those who offer the naseehat are not involved in the evils which they condemn.
Furthermore, the Ulama of the Raiwand Tablighi faction are fully involved in Tabligh. On the basis of the stupid principle, Molvi Sa’d and his clique should listen to the naseehat of these Tablighi molvis.
