ABOUT THE OUTLIVED UTILITY OF MADAARIS JALSAHS

QUESTION: According to The Majlis, the jalsahs of the Madaaris have outlived their utility. What was the utility?

Answer (by Mujlisul Ulama): The Ilm of the Deen had become so despised, in India- despised by Muslims – that the masses believed that the pursuit of Ilm-e-Deen makes a person a humiliated beggar. It was considered despicable to pursue the Knowledge of the Deen. This was the state of zandaqah of the masses, and today in our time, even many molvis subconsciously believe in this kufr, hence they send even their daughters to brothel universities to acquire secular education because in their hearts they do not believe what Islam teaches about predetermined Rizq.

In order to create Deeni respect and appreciation for the Deen and its Knowledge our Akaabireen began the process of establishing Madaaris. However, due to deficiency in Tawakkul and due to being far, very far from the age of the Sahaabah, even the Akaabir Ulama’s focus shifted from Allah Ta’ala to a degree, and they initiated schemes for accumulating funds to sustain the Madaaris.

Since Muslims despised Ilm-e-Deen, they would not contribute funds for the expenses of the Madaaris. Hence, the Akaabir Ulama erred by initiating the Jalsah scheme. Instead of Tawakkul, they gravitated to the dunya. Despite thenobility of their motive, the shift from Tawakkul to the dunya and divergence from the original course of the Salafus Saaliheen were disastrous errors in the wake of which followed todays bid’ah and haraam jalsahs of Israaf, Riya and Takabbur.

The one and only purpose of the Jalsahs was to collect funds for the annual expenses of the Madrasah. In most cases, they collected sufficient funds at the Jalsahs for the expenses of the Madaaris.

While we shall not say that the initial Jalsah programme of the Akaabir was impermissible, we must say unequivocally that it indicated deficiency in Tawakkul and in it the seeds for today’s evil jalsahs were sown. Ilm-e-Deen was imparted during the age of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam), the age of the Sahaabah and thereafter. The only basis on which the structure of the Madrasah was raised in the early days was Tawakkul. Reliance was totally on only Allah Azza Wa Jal. In view of the lack of this lofty degree of Tawakkul, the Akaabir Ulama initiated the scheme of Jalsahs and Safeers. A Safeer is a fund-raiser. All Madaaris in India have such fundraisers who travel around the country collecting funds for the Madaaris. In the aftermath of such bootlicking fund-raising comes humiliation, corvealed in the lonely, forlorn, barren, dusty Ghaare-e-Hira (Cave of Hiraa). With the bid’ah of jalasahs became attached many haraam factors, hence Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) abandoned attending jalated to merrymaking functions dominated by shaitaaniyyat and nafsaaniyyat. It will not be imprudent to say by way of castigation that the Madaaris authorities who arrange these wasteful shaitaani Israaf, and shaitaani merrymaking with their jalsahs while millions of the Ummah are languishing in abject jahaalat, proverty and misery. But the jalsah organizers and jalsah participants continue recklessly with their wasteful gluttony. They ruption, and the demotion of the lofty status of Ilm-e-Deen which has its Fountain in the Qur’aan Majeed which was revealed in the lonely, forlorn, barren, dusty Ghaare-e-Hira (Cave of Hiraa).

With the bid’ah of jalasahs became attached many haraam factors, hence Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) abandoned attending jalsahs and sternly criticized these functions even if no haraam acts occur at the jalsahs.

In South Africa and other affluent countries, the jalsahs have degenerated to merrymaking functions dominated by shaitaaniyyat and nafsaaniyyat. It will not be imprudent to say by way of castigation that the Madaaris authorities who arrange these wasteful shaitaani jalsahs should be incinerated in the pyre prepared for the incineration of corpses. They have obliterated every vestige of shame and brotherly feeling for the suffering Ummah, hence they foster gluttony, Israaf, and shaitaani merrymaking with their jalsahs while millions of the Ummah are languishing in abject jahaalat, proverty and misery. But the jalsah organizers and jalsah participants continue recklessly with their wasteful gluttony. They only eat, excrete and make merry. The jalsahs of today are decidedly evil. Never attend such functions which rupture your bond with Allah Ta’ala.
