THE GHULU’ OF THE TABLIGH JAMAAT

By Mujlisul Ulama

Ghulu’ is such extremism which is the product of bigotry and arrogance. It is this evil which has ruined the Tabligh Jamaat. It has culminated in the development of the two mutually hostile factions out for each other’s blood. In the Name of Allah Ta’ala and the Deen they are now directing their haraam bigotry to those who were all along their brothers. Both haraam factions are equal in this evil sin of Ghulu’.

Several persons have posed the following questions:

Q. According to the leaders of the Tabligh Jamaat their kind of tabligh is Fardh on every Muslim. Is this correct?

A. This is about their worst act of ghulu’. The Qur’aan Majeed states:

“Do not commit ghulu’ in your Deen.” This Aayat is in the first instance directed to the Christians who committed the ghulu’ of elevating Nabi Isaa (Alayhis salaam) to godhood. The Tabligh Jamaat is guilty of committing similar ghulu’ as the Christians.

In claiming that their specific methodology of tabligh is fardh, they are by implication attributing a brazen lie to Allah Azza Wa Jal.  Everyone is aware that Salaat, Saum, Zakaat and Hajj are Fardh on all Muslims when the sharaa-it (the imperative conditions) are found. These acts of Ibaadat have been decreed Fardh by Allah Ta’ala.

The specific tabligh methodology of the Tabligh Jamaat is a very late development in the Ummah. It is about a century old. There is no basis in the Sunnah for this method. Nevertheless, we say that the method of the Tabligh Jamaat is Mubah (Permissible), and it will remain permissible as long as it is maintained within the confines of permissibility.

If this method is elevated to Fardh, then most certainly, it will be bid’ah, and necessary to abstain. Now with the evil factionalism, it has become even more necessary to abstain.

Q. What is the status of Tabligh in Islam?

A. Firstly understand well that by Tabligh is not meant the specific kind of tabligh of the Tabligh Jamaat. It is a massive lie which tablighis are trading by claiming that their peculiar method is fardh. It is slander against Allah Ta’ala.

There are many branches of Tabligh, e.g. teaching the Deen in Madrasahs or from any other venue, teaching children in Maktabs, delivering bayaans, writing  articles, publishing books, speaking  individually to non-Muslims, practising Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar, Khaanqas, parents teaching their children, etc., etc. All these are forms of Tabligh.

Q. Tablighi molvis claim that Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mubaarak (Rahmatullah alayh) would take jamaats out for tabligh six months of the year. Please comment.

A. They are dishonest and extremely deceptive. This claim is a gross deception. Hadhrat Abdullah Ibn Mubaarak (Rahmatullah alayh) never did as the tablighi molvis claim. He used to participate 6 month in active Jihad (Qitaal). He would join the Islamic army to wage Jihad against the kuffaar. He never took jamaats in Tablighi Jamaat style knocking at the doors of people in emulation of the current style of the Tablighi Jamaat. They must beware of such deception which is tantamount to slander. Such lies may not be traded regardless of how good the intention may be.

Q. The Tablighi also claim that: 1) Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had even during his Last Illness repeatedly instructed that Usama (Radhiyallahu anhu) should go out with a jamaat. 2) Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) during his lifetime had sent out 150 jamaats while he himself had participated in 20.

A. This is another deception of the ghulu’ class perpetrated by the Tablighi molvis. The ‘jamaat’ of Usama (Radhiyallahu anhu) and the ‘jamaats’ of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) were for Jihad (Qitaal). They carried weapons and issued into the world to raise the glory of Islam with their swords. These jamaats were not Tablighi Jamaat style groups which knocked at the doors of Muslims. Whilst this is permissible if retained within the confines of permissibility, there is no resemblance between the ‘jamaats’ of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the jamaats of the Tablighi Jamaat.

Q. What is the status of a person who claims that the method of the Tabligh Jamaat is fard/waajib?

A. He is a faasiq, bid’ati.

Q. What is the status of the Tabligh Jamaat? They preach so much of deception and extremism.

A. We hesitate at this stage of branding the whole Jamaat as being a baatil sect although it appears that it is heading this way. May Allah Ta’ala save the Jamaat from self-destruction. We are viewing the Jamaat with caution in view of the great work and goodness which its elders have accomplished. However, if tablighis are going to continue their downward slide into bigotry and factionalism, then there will be no alternative but to label them as a baatil sect just as most of the sufi tariqas of today are baatil sects despite claiming to be Chishtiyyah, Naqshbandiyyah, etc.

Q. Some Ulama are of the opinion that the Tabligh Jamaat is intransigently persisting in its transgression of the limits of the Shariah, therefore, it should be branded as a sect of bid’ah. Please comment.

A. Those Ulama should publicly state their argument and proceed with their labelling.

TABLIGHI JAMAAT SHAITAANI SPLIT

By Mujlisul Ulama

ITS  TWO BELLIGERENT FACTIONS, THE DEBACLE, THE SHAITAANIYAT AND THE SINISTER  PLOTTERS BEHIND THE SCENES

Subsequent to our recent Naseehat for the two mutually hostile Tablighi Jamaat factions, numerous people have written from both factions and by those who are neutral, not affiliated to any of the hostile groups. While all express the desire for the unification of the factions, all are trapped in quandary and confusion. No one knows the solution for the diseases which have culminated in the grievous and ruinous split of the Tabligh Jamaat.

Let it be well understood that the split which is the prelude for the demise of the Tabligh Jamaat, that is the Jamaat which its noble elders had established to revive the Deen among the ignorant masses, will not be healed. On the contrary, the chasm will incrementally widen. The kuffaar plotters lurking in the dark behind the scenes will ensure that the Jamaat is killed off.

It is only naivety of the kind produced by gross jahaalat to fail to understand what is really happening to the Tabligh Jamaat and what the pernicious objective is. Sinister kuffaar forces of the U.S.A., Israel and India are in the conspiracy to destroy this Islamic mass movement. Although the kuffaar element is merely the ostensible worldly cause, the Actual Designer of the crisis which has torn the Jamaat asunder is Allah Azza Wa Jal. The real causes for the humiliating crisis of the Tabligh Jamaat are:

(1) Ghulu’Haraam excesses. The belief that the Tabligh Jamaat is the sole repository of Najaat (Salvation), and that all the other branches of Islamic Tabligh and Da’wat are superfluous and redundant. Stemming from this attitude are the acts of bid’ah innovated by the Jamaat. A detailed exposition of these evils is beyond the scope of this brief Naseehat

(2) Israaf – Colossal waste of the ni’mat of wealth. The israaf of the Easter Ijtimas is unparalleled. They shamelessly waste millions and millions of dollars world-wide on these Ijtimas which have assumed carnival proportions. The steel structure replacing the old style tent, used at the recent Rustenburg ijtima cost R25 million, and it failed to serve the purpose of its procurement. It could not ensure the successful operation of the Ijtima against the pouring torrential rain. It was thus a failure. There is no need for wasting such large sums of money, especially when millions of Muslims are suffering all over the world being the victims of genocide committed by the kuffaar.

With what heart and conscience do they squander like shayaateen so much wealth when the Ummah is ablaze? This shaitaani waste is one of the main causes for the elimination of the barkat from the work of the Jamaat.  

(3) COMMERCIALISATION
That the Ijtimas are commercialised is no secret. The Ijtima in Rustenburg was transformed into a veritable mall by the hundreds of stalls. They are operating the Ijtima in emulation of the Ansaarush Shaitaan souks. Besides the carnival ethos created at the Ijtimah, the monetary objective is of primary importance. Much shenanigans are perpetrated behind the commercial facade of the Tabligh Jamaat.

Raiwand itself has become a mini-state. Innumerable Tablighis are not aware of the seven day coup in 2011 at the Raiwand markaz where Qutbuddin, Haji Abdul Wahhab’s foster/adopted son abortively attempted to stage a coup and to install himself as the Ameer. With a gang of thugs armed with AK assault rifles riding an armoured vehicle, they stormed into the grounds and took control for about a week. However, the Principal of the Darul Uloom at the Markaz together with the students finally managed to disarm and pummel the invaders. Much worse is set to unfold at the Raiwand markaz. The monetary shaitaan is too strong and embedded in Raiwand.
(4) GHEEBAT
The members of the Tabligh Jamaat across the board indulge in gheebat of the worst kind – gheebat of those Ulama who do not participate in their specific Tablighi programmes. Without the slightest fear for Allah Ta’ala and without understanding whose flesh they are devouring with their gheebat, they deride and speak ill of such senior Heirs of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullah alayh) and Hadhrat Maulana Masihullah (Rahmatullah alayh).

The Mashaaikh said that the flesh of the Ulama is fatal poison – poison for the Imaan of those who indulge in this abomination. Any Aalim who sincerely alerts the Tablighis to their errors, is deemed to be anti-Tabligh, hence gheebat becomes lawful in their math-hab of Ghulu’. The consequence of this evil is nothing other than the Wrath of Allah Ta’ala which we now realize has befallen the Tabligh Jamaat in the form of the Jamaat splitting up into two venomously hostile factions.

(5) GOONDAGERRY
The Tablighis have not hesitated to employ goondagerry (thuggery) to prevent the Tabligh and Deeni projects of others. An Aalim in a village in India had planned to build a Musjid in the village where the people are mostly Tablighis. Fearing the Musjid will not be a Tablighi one, the Tablighi goondas (thugs) threatened to kill the Aalim if he goes ahead to build the Musjid. They caused considerable distress to the Aalim who was constrained to abandon his plans.

While they tolerate the baatil of others, they have no toleration for the Haqq if it goes against their grain. People have written to us from various countries complaining about the goondagerry tactics of the Tablighis. The goondagerry was amply demonstrated by Molvi Sa’d in the villainous acts of thug violence at the Nizaamuddin markaz last year, and also in the Bangladesh markaz this year. The violence was further exported to the U.K. where Molvi Laat succeeded to sow the seeds of dissension which culminated in the Jamaat splitting into two factions over there.

Wherever the Jamaat has split asunder, its members have not hesitated degenerating into vulgar abuse and even violence.   We have been receiving reports from all over the world of this shaitaaniyat of the Tablighi Jamaat. The attitudes which even their seniors display proves that there is no Islaah-e-Nafs in the syllabus of the Jamaat. In fact, their attitude and behaviour confirm that they lack understanding of the meaning of Islaah-e-nafs.

(6) HONOURING FUSSAAQ
An evil tendency of the Tabligh Jamaat is honouring such fussaaq who they believe are crowd-drawers by virtue of being eloquent, glib-tongued orators. Thus it is observed that a chap such as Tariq Jamil who flagrantly violates the Shariah with his haraam indulgences being regarded as among the elders of the Tabligh Jamaat. When a Faasiq is honoured, the Arsh of Allah Azza Wa Jal shudders as is mentioned in the Hadith.

Tariq Jamil’s flagrant dalliance with the Shiahs, cinema characters, indulgence in television, video and photography, and intermingling with females render him a confirmed faasiq. Instead of demoting him and removing him from any type of shura, the Tablighi Jamaat does the exact opposite.

The very same applies to Molvi Ahmed Laat who flagrantly indulges in photography and video. Furthermore, a number of persons have made extremely grave allegation of moral misdemeanours perpetrated by him. Although the Tabligh Jamaat is well aware of these shenanigans, it continues to hold him in high office.

(7) THE WOMEN’S JAMAAT
The women’s jamaat is another evil diversion from Siraatul Mustaqeem. This is an evil haraam accretion in emulation of kuffaar women’s liberation movements. The Tabligh Jamaat has cast tens of thousands of women in roles which Allah Ta’ala never intended for them.

Due to the Ghulu’ the Tabligh Jamaat has gone off the Track of the Sunnah which its original founder had initiated. The arrogance in all ranks of the Tablighis is indicative of the contempt in which they hold those who do not participate in their specific tabligh methodology which was introduced only very recently.   Despite the recent origin of this methodology of Tabligh, they insist stupidly with bigoted intransigence, totally bereft of even a vestige of Shar’i daleel that their specific form of Tabligh is Fardh-e-Ain. This preposterous claim is the evidence for their jahaalat. Those grounded in Ilm will not disgorge such drivel. This arrogance had become a distinctive feature of Tablighis, and we refer to the Tablighis even before the split.  

In accommodation of baatil, they were extremely receptive and co-operative with the people of baatil. But with the Ahl-e-Haqq Ulama, they displayed enmity and arrogance, and indulged in gheebat. The consequences of these evils have now become manifest. It has culminated in the irreparable damage of the unbridgeable split. They are now devouring the flesh of one another. Wala houla wa la quwwata…. 

The satanic process of dissension has been incremental in the aftermath of the split. Instead of sagacity reigning, all the elders in both factions, have been fanning the flames of mutual animosity. Each faction is striving to undermine its opponent. Instead of making endeavours for unification to enable the work of Tabligh to proceed without the shaitaani encumbrance of nafsaaniyat, the polarization of the factions into adversaries is now the policy of both groups. There is no genuine desire in any of the factions for working together as a single Tabligh Jamaat.

Groups consisting of their most senior elders are now making ghasht, and roaming around not for Tabligh of the Kalimah, but for Tabligh of fitnah. They are moving around the globe wasting huge sums of money in travelling, to vindicate their respective positions. But in this evil process, the hatred is fomented and the chasm is becoming wider and wider. It now appears that there is no hope of bridging the gap, leave  alone the issue of unifying the two factions into the single group which had existed prior to Molvi Sa’d’s goondagerry coup in Nizaamuddin.

Instead of vindicating their respective stances, they should meet one another and with Ikhlaas explore avenues for reconciliation. On the contrary, a group comes to a town, arranges a gathering and explains its position. Instead of engaging in Tabligh, they indulge in gheebat. The salient feature of such meetings is gheebat of the adversary. In the name of da’wat and Tabligh, they have now added a new evil chapter of shameless indulgence in gheebat. This new policy has effectively negated the Six points of the Tabligh Jamaat.   The very elimination of Ikhlaas renders all the points meaningless.

Non-Tablighis listening to the hollow calls of “Success of mankind…yaqeen, etc., etc.” stare agape and aghast, in disbelief. Here they speak about ‘success for mankind in the world and in the Hereafter’ whilst they have daggers at the throats of one another! People are no longer attaching importance to these calls which ring hollow and are bereft of Ikhlaas. They are in serious violation of their cardinal article of faith, namely: Ikraamul Muslim (to honour and respect a Muslim). They have substituted this pillar of their faith with Ihaanatul Muslim (to disgrace a Muslim), and their own kind has become the target for this Ihaanat. 

THE SOLUTION
What is the solution for the Tabligh Jamaat?
As far as the leadership crisis is concerned, there is no solution. This evil is set to be perpetuated. There are faceless sinister role players behind the scenes. The entire haraam fiasco is the product of conspiracy. Just as Darul Uloom Deoband and Mazaahirul Uloom Saharanpur had split into two extremely hostile camps for which a solution could not be found, despite very senior Ulama being in these camps, so too, will there be no solution for the Nizaamuddin created split. On the contrary, the enmity and drift-apart will only intensify. 

The leadership fitnah erupted at a peculiar juncture. It did not occur during a leadership exercise. The Jamaat was not in the process of appointing an ameer. While the Jamaat was continuing along its course, Molvi Sa’d initiated the leadership fitnah. There was nothing to trigger this mischief.   This creates the impression that he was for some time planning to stage his coup. Without caring for the appalling consequences in which his evil action would culminate, he was blinded by whatever his objective was, to execute the despicable plot to rent the Jamaat asunder.

A brother writing to us on this issue proposed that the Ulama from South Africa should send a delegation to discuss with Molvi Sa’d to resolve the crisis. This is no solution. Firstly, the molvis in South Africa, the vast majority, are themselves entangled in the mess of this fitnah. Instead of conducting themselves sagaciously with fear for Allah Ta’ala, and with a genuine desire to unify the Nizaamuddin and Raiwand factions, they despicably degenerated into the rut and rot of taking sides, joining this and that faction.

The majority of the Gauteng and Natal molvis joined Raiwand whilst in the Cape it was Molvi Sa’d’s constituency. Instead of resolving the issue, the factions here in South Africa exacerbated it. The flames of the conflagration were fanned further. Thus, there are no Tablighi molvis in South Africa capable of acting the role of the mediator and reconciler. They are all biased and driven along by the nafs.

Secondly and most importantly, Molvi Sa’d has his agenda. He had resorted to real thuggery by engaging goondas to violently take control of the markaz. For the Hindu police to intervene and enter the markaz was all acceptable to him. He also has not shown the slightest vestige of remorse, and he is not in the lease amenable to abandon his haraam usurpation of the markaz property and the amaarate position for which he is unqualified.

Any delegation to discuss with him for the attainment of a resolution which will require him to relinquish the position he has established for himself, will be met with failure.

The nafsaani stakes are too high and from the worldly perspective too lucrative to abandon.

Besides Tablighi molvis there are no such Ulama in South Africa who will be acceptable to Molvi Sa’d. The only slender hope is for the Ulama of Deoband, Saharanpur and of other Darul Ulooms in India to attempt discussions with Molvi Sa’d. Although in our understanding even such a delegation of Ulama will meet with failure, nevertheless, it is worth to initiate the attempt to resolve the dispute.

As far as the issue stands between Raiwand and Nizaamuddin, there is no hope of resolution and solution. However, as far as the factions in South Africa and in all other countries are concerned, a resolution is possible if they can acquit themselves with Ikhlaas and utilize their cognitive abilities to understand the colossal damage they are causing the Ummah by aiding and abetting Raiwand and Nizaamuddin.

The work of Tabligh – methodology of Maulana Ilyaas (Rahmatullah alayh) – has reached almost all places on earth. The work is now well-known and well-established. There is no need for Raiwand and Nizaamuddin to ensure the smooth operation of this Tabligh all over the world. 

For the solution other than Raiwand and Nizaamuddin, the factions should resolve to work on only the Six points. Delete Raiwand and Nizaamuddin from the equation. These two markazes have not only outlived their utility, they are in fact destructive for the universal, smooth and successful functioning of the Tabligh Jamaat. A mighty explosion of the corruption underneath Raiwand is yet to explode. What had occurred in Raiwand in 2011 will be relatively insignificant.

Some Brothers say that while it is possible to work on the basis of only the Six points to which both factions are agreeable, the problem will develop when tashkeel of jamaats is made. Where should the jamaats go? To Raiwand or Nizaamuddin? The solution is to completely forget about Raiwand and Nizaamuddin. The problem lies in these two places. The objective of Tabligh is not to sustain or entrench the hegemony of either of these two markazes. The Maqsood is Da’wat and Tabligh of the Deen, not of the views and interests of Raiwand and Nizaamuddin. They have drifted from the Maqsood.

Another question posed to us is: The Ulama have issued a fatwa on the deviation of a person, confirming that he has deviated from the Straight Path of the Sunnah. That person is Molvi Sa’d. What is the status of those who follow him?

This is the primary argument of the Raiwand faction. For those who are not in Nizaamuddin, this should not be an issue. Molvi  Sa’d’s deviation should not be presented as the excuse for perpetuating the dissension. The work of this Tabligh has a solid mould of Six points. As long as all work within the confines of these Six points is the objective, Molvi Sa’d’s deviation (goomraahi) will be a non-issue. The Ulama can tackle him separately for his deviation. His deviation should not be an obstacle in the path of the Jamaat’s tablighi efforts.

However, if anyone attempts to propagate the deviated ideas and interpretations of Molvi Sa’d, then obviously he will not be a Tablighi in the meaning of the Tabligh Jamaat conception. Such a person should be expelled from within the fold. The safety measure to guard against the infiltration of deviation and un-Islamic concepts is to rigidly adhere to the Usool of the Six points. When the valid principles are violated, it opens the door for fitnah.

The following arguments have been advanced by some of those who support the Raiwand faction. The arguments are reproduced verbatim hereunder:

1) Almost a third of the nizamudinjamaats spoke about the 6 points and seemed correct from the front, however on private visits to individuals they spoke bad about the shura, even made the same statements as Moulana Saad regarding Ambiyaa (Alayhi Salaam). Some went on further and privately to individuals made other statements that Moulana Saad made. These statements started creating a problem in a community where there was no problem. It became very difficult to filter out which of the nizamudinjamaats was problematic, hence a blanket decision on all the jamaats from nizamudin. One mutawalli even stated that how can we accept a group of people who echo their leader’s statements but we not accept their leader (referring to Moulana saad). Furthermore the ideologies and work from the nizamudin camp was not the tabligh we were thought. The impression is given that the work and the effort is the same, to anyone not involved it looks the same, believe me, first hand who dealt with both parties publically and privately, it’s not the same.

Our response:
This is exactly what the Sa’d group says about the shura group. Who do we believe? Both speak convincingly of their stances. In private visits we have found even the Raiwand faction indulging in gheebat. This is not the property exclusively of the Nizaamuddin faction. Both factions, even their seniors, are  actively involved in spreading the culture of gheebat under guise of tabligh.

What is said in private cannot be adequately addressed. Of primary importance is to ensure that in public – in the bayaans, etc. only the Six points are the subject of Tabligh. The members of both factions are guilty of gossiping and backbiting of their former brothers who have overnight become their enemies.

Molvi Sa’d’s misinterpretations and deviations should not be presented as an excuse for perpetuating the factionalism. His impropriety must be addressed by the Ulama, especially the senior Ulama in India. This issue with Sa’d cannot be resolved by factionalism in the Jamaat.

It is a confounded lie to say that the statements made in private by Molvi Sa’d’s followers “started creating a problem”. The deviations of Molvi Sa’d were well aware long before the split. The Majlis had highlighted his errors in several articles. However, the Tablighi Jamaat then made The Majlis its target of gheebat. The current supporters of Raiwand were then not concerned about his deviations. On the contrary, they were agitated and annoyed with The Majlis for the exposure of a grave cancer which others had also begun criticizing. It is dishonest now to justify the split on the basis of Molvi Sa’d’s deviation. The split is the consequence of nafsaaniyat and shaitaaniyat. This evil dissension has erupted on the basis of baatil, not for the sake of the Haqq.

The “blanket ban on all Nizaamuddin groups” enacted by the stupid Tablighi leadership in Natal and Gauteng is the effect of nafsaaniyat.

At no stage in their lives did these molvis ever resort to similar actions on the basis of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar. They never opened their mouths against the halaalization of carrion by the Carrion Devils. They opted for a deafening silence on the issue of halaalization of riba and haraam photography, television and videos. On the contrary, they condoned these evils. 

With their silence, all of these Tablighi molvis of Natal and Gauteng and elsewhere condoned the adulterous Souks of Ansaarush Shaitaan. Their haraam policy of stupid ‘hikmat’ find all the haraam shenanigans of Reverend Abraham Bham tolerable and even permissible. They have no word of criticism for the acts of fisq and fujoor in which the ulama-e-soo’ fraternity indulges. And all are the supporters of the Tabligh Jamaat.

They never enacted a blanket ban on the khuraafaat and shaitaaniyat of all these evil radios which are agents of Iblees. Now, they suddenly have become paragons of Amr Bil Ma’roof with their gossip against their own flesh and blood. The molvis of both factions are equally guilty of these crimes. They have descended further into evil by contaminating the brains and hearts of their masses with their mutual enmity and destructive ‘tabligh’ of a new shaitaani kind.

The Tablighi molvis are not known for standing out in defence of the Haqq. Compromising with baatil on the basis of their confounded policy of ‘hikmat’ has always been their outstanding feature. This is the lesson they have inherited from the leadership at the top. This evil is well demonstrated in their acceptance of characters such as Tariq Jamil and Molvi Laat into the upper echelons of their leaderless shura set-up which has replaced the Sunnah of Amaarate.

The question by the “one musalli” (mentioned in the above citation) is stupidly vindictive and dishonest. The Tabligh Jamaat has all along throughout its history accepted and accommodated people who echoed the baatil of their leaders without accepting the leaders. Tariq Jamil is a classic example of such acceptance. Despite his dalliance with Shiahs and other evil characters, he has, not only been accepted, but elevated into the upper echelons of the Raiwand shura hierarchy.

The second argument presented for justifying the factionalism is: 

2) Some of the nizamudin jamaats offered bribes to the muezzin (big amounts of money) to give the shura jamaats a difficult time.  

If this is true, it is an effect of the factionalism. It is part of the dirty fight between the two groups, and it will increase and become worse if the factionalism is going to be perpetuated. Sealing the date of the factionalism will terminate such effects of animosity. Anyhow, the alleged ‘bribery’ is lesser in villainy than the culture of gheebat with which both factions are plagued. Furthermore, this crime is the consequence of the Raiwand group fiving the Nizaamuddin a ‘difficult time’ by means of the ‘blanket ban’. The solution for such tit-for-tat shaitaaniyat is not the perpetuation of the split and dissension. 

The third argument proffered by the Brother of the Raiwand group is:

3) After our decision was made, we got threats of assault from the Durban brothers who support nizamudin. Our calls are not recorded but if you need proof, there was a recording of a call making its way on social media late last year of similar threats of violence by a young Mr Norath.

Our response is the same as for No.2, above. This too is a consequence of the factionalism, and sustaining the split is not the solution. The Nizaamuddin faction also makes similar claims against the Raiwand faction. They have explained to us that even guns were displayed to scare them from the Musjids.

The Tablighi brother’s fourth argument is:

4) The nizamudin brothers became very aggressive towards us and even threatened brothers of job losses through their contacts, unless we directly accept their jamaats. Some were even offered money to change our decision. Our musjid was even offered money monthly to change our decision.

The response is the same as above. This type of tactic is old hat among Tablighis. Long before the split, many others from other countries, especially India and Pakistan have written to us complaining of goondagerry tactics to compel compliance with Tablighi Jamaat methodology. If the allegations in the complaint is true, it only reflects what has been injected into the veins of Tablighis by years of ghulu’. Be it as it may, these consequence in the aftermath of the split highlights the urgency of eliminating the factionalism and to work as a single Tablighi Jamaat on the basis of the Six points. With the perpetuation of the factions, the evils will become vastly magnified.

The Tablighi Brother’s fifth argument:  

5) Jamaats from the nizamudin brothers used to just pitch up without routes, prior notification and proper mashura, creating logistical problems as at times we had two jamaats from two different camps with two different ideologies in the musjid. At times we had two jamaats in a week in a small musjid.

The response is the same. This too is a consequence of the split, and it may not be presented as a justification for sustaining the dissension. It must be observed that the claim of publicly propagating two ideologies is incorrect. In public, in the Musaajid where the groups have their bayaan, they do adhere to the Six points. It is a false accusation to claim that the Nizaamuddin faction propagates in its bayaans a different ideology. The brother has failed to outline that ideology. There is no evidence for claiming that they were propagating Molvi Sa’d’s deviation in their public bayaans in the Musaajid.

The Brother’s sixth argument:

6) The social media issues are numerous, attacking the shura including Moulana Ahmed Laat typed by the nizamudin brothers slandering Ulema on the shura side by attributing the messages to them. (I know one Aalim from Johannesburg whose name was attributed to the message, but he didn’t type it. He was in a great deal of distress). I can forward you three of such messages but don’t want to create a bigger problem. It seems as though the nizamudin brothers are using you to fight for them by not giving you correct and full information. They then are using your name on their social media attacks.

Our response is the same. Since the factions have polarized, the tug of war between the factions will continue and gain momentum with passing days. Both factions are utilizing evil and haraam tactics to justify themselves. They are acting with extreme stupidity and without the least fear for Allah Ta’ala and totally oblivious of the damage they are causing to their Cause and to the Deen. Each group is attempting to outclass its adversary. Like politicians they canvass for support and followers. The Haqq and the Aakhirat are not their concerns. Their success is measured by them by the number of people attending their gatherings. Yet they are ignorant of the fact that by Allah Ta’ala numbers are of no importance.

Hadhrat Nooh (Alayhis salaam) had after 950 years of Tabligh and Da’wat managed to gain about 70 or 80 followers. There will be a Nabi to enter Jannat with only three Ummatis; another one with two and a third one with only one. Perhaps there will be a Nabi who will enter Jannat without a single Ummati. They were not unsuccessful in their missions of Da’wat and Tabligh. But the Guide is Allah Azza Wa Jal. He says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “He guides whomever He wills, and He misleads whomever He wills.”   Numbers have no significance in Islam. In fact, the Qur’aan states: “The majority is astray”

As for the “Nizaamuddin brothers using us” (The Majlis) by feeding us false information, this brother’s bias has blinded him to the reality of our stance. In South Africa, The Majlis was the very first entity to expose Molvi Sa’d’s deviation and his goondagerry. We have not shifted from this position as even this current Naseehat will convince all unbiased people who are aghast at the haraam shenanigans of both factions.

In our earlier Naseehat there is nothing to suggest that we are supporting the Nizaamuddin faction. We had merely advised that the ‘blanket ban’ on the Nizaamuddin groups is improper and is designed to perpetuate the dissension. Both groups have reported the shenanigans of each other. The one accuses the other. All are in the same boat of corruption. And, all these shenanigans are the consequences of the factionalism.

Prior to the split, the Tablighi Jamaat would mete out such treatment to non-Tablighis. Now, Allah Ta’ala has created the circumstances for their own misdeeds to boomerang on them. Ghulu’ is an evil shaitaani plot. Iblees entraps Deeni personnel with this snare adorned with ‘deeni’ attire. Allah Ta’ala says in the Qur’aan Majeed: “Do not commit ghulu’ (excess) in your Deen.” It is ghulu’ which forged the doctrine of trinity, and it is ghulu’ which developed the Qabar Pujaari sect.

The Nizaamuddin group cannot use our name for propagating the views of Molvi Sa’d. They can only rightfully claim that according to us it is not permissible to debar them from the Musaajid as long as they adhere to the Six points. The world is well aware of our stance and our criticism of the ghulu’ of Molvi Sa’d. Furthermore, the local Raiwand faction in Port Elizabeth is using our Musjid as their base. The local Nizaamuddin faction does not even visit our Musjid for Salaat on account of the presence of the Raiwand group. This is indicative of their mutual hatred. They abhor even crossing paths.

The recent Raiwand caction consisting of its seniors used, our Musjid as their base for their mini-ijtima. Whilst in Port Elizabeth, they did not make even an attempt of meeting the other faction nor did the other faction attempt meeting those from Raiwand who just recently were regarded as seniors by them. This is indeed a dismal commentary of the seniors who are supposed to acquit themselves gracefully with sagacity and wisdom, and to try their level best to heal the wounds. 

Our neutrality stands out glittering. It is plain stupidity or silly bias which induces a person to understand that we are supporters of the Nizaamuddin faction.

Our stance has for all time always been the defence of the Haqq. It matters not who comes in the pathway of Haqq, he will clash with us, be it any of the factions of the Tabligh Jamaat or be it even our Darul Uloom Deoband.

The Tablighi Brother’s seventh argument:

7) First hand I can inform you that the zimmidaar brothers from the nizamudin side are not doing much work or making much effort for deen. Very few to no local jamaats have being taken out by them. Some who do come out to spend time are paid to do so. Some have being given free trips to nizamudin and to their programmes as well as to their ijtemas. I felt that this defeats the purpose of own health, wealth and time. It seems that the zimmidaar saaties in the nizamudin camp only make the routes of foreign jamaats, as there is nothing else to do. The local African people are given freebies and are paid to visit them. This is going to create a huge problem in future.

Our response is the same. These alleged deficiencies of the Nizaamuddin group are not valid cause for dissension or for perpetuating the split. These very same people were your saaties before the split. Now they are your enemies. Furthermore, the Nizaamuddin saaties are making the very same allegations about the Raiwand faction. They have personally told us a similar story. All the defects which are now being advertised had existed in the Tabligh Jamaat prior to the lamentable debacle. Dirty linen is now being washed in the public domain in the attempt to score points over the adversary.

Concluding his discourse, the Tablighi Brother who believes himself to be ‘neutral’, says:

These and many other issues are what we are facing in Natal. Bear in mind regarding my history of being neutral. After seeing first hand some of the deceitful things being done by the nizamudin camp, the result being the change of mine and my masjids decision. Again I reiterate that ALL jamaats are accepted in our musjid on condition they are given routes, hidayat bayaan on what to do and are screened from the Shura side.

It is clear from his discourse that this brother lacks understanding of the meaning of neutrality. The condition of being first screened by the Raiwand faction is simply an attempt to establish domination over the Nizaamuddin faction. This will not solve the problem of the dissension and the mutual enmity. The need is to first eliminate the root cause, for only then will a single jamaat be successful. The screening process will be understood by the Nizaamuddin faction as an attempt to impose Raiwand hegemony on them. The need is to eradicate the Raiwand and Nizaamuddin tags. And, this is possible only by deciding to stay away from Raiwand and Nizaamuddin until such time that the situation normalizes. But such normalization remains a remote hope.

A GRAVE ERROR OF THE SENIORS OF THE PAST
A serious lapse committed by the previous elders of the Tabligh Jamaat – all are now in their graves – was their misjudgement of leaving a vacuum. They left the Tabligh Jamaat without an Ameer. In so doing they were in violation of the Sunnah.  

The Sunnah requires even a travelling group of three to have an Ameer. How is it possible and how can it be Islamically permissible to leave such a huge ship as the Tabligh Jamaat to sail rudderless in stormy oceans?  Leaving the Jamaat without an Ameer to pilot this Ship and entrusting the operation to a shura was a terrible mistake.

The shura became emaciated with the demise of its members, and it never occurred to the remaining couple of shura members to immediately fill the vacancies. They woke up from their slumber to resurrect a new shura when it was too late. Sa’d, seeing this vacuum and driven on by whatever is his motivation, be it Hubb-e-Jah or some greater and darker plot engineered by aliens, deemed the time right to put into operation his coup. He succeeded in installing himself as the ameer in Nizaamuddin with the aid of his Mewati and other goondas. 

It is indeed a sad commentary on the integrity of the Jamaatis. Could the elders not find a capable and suitably qualified Aalim for the Amaarate from among the millions of Tablighis all over the world? It is clear that in their own estimate there was not a single Tablighi Aalim qualified for appointing as the Ameer. If they had a suitably qualified man, they would not have ignored the Sunnah requirement. The only conclusion is that they could not find in their ranks a reliable and qualified Aalim for this post.

Be this as it may. The fact remains that they had grievously erred by leaving the post vacant. At least they should have appointed one of their shura members to become the Ameer after the demise of the last Ameer.

CONCLUSION

1)  Molvi Sa’d created the split with his nafs and under direction of Iblees.

2) Raiwand exported the recipe for dissension to all the countries. They miserably failed to proffer sagacious advice.

3) The Tablighis in the foreign countries are perpetuating the split by falling in the trap of factionalism set up by Iblees

We can only make dua and implore Allah Ta’ala to guide the two factions and to bestow to them ikhlaas in which they are sorely deficient.

“Upon us  is only to deliver the Clear Message.” (Qur’aan)

Was-salaam

THE SCREENING PROCESS AND THE BLANKET BAN
The screening of the Tablighi groups and the blanket ban are two diabolical measures which only aggravate the dissension. Instead of breaking the ice between the two factions, these measures serve only a greater polarization. The supporters of Molvi Sa’d obviously understand that they are the target for this humiliating treatment.

There is no need for these measures to ensure that the deviations of Sa’d are not being propagated. The groups supporting him will generally be in such Musaajid in Gauteng and Natal where the Raiwand faction is in control. It is inconceivable that any Tablighi group would in its bayaan in these Musaajid veer from the Six points to give da’wat of Molvi Sa’d’s deviated views pertaining to academic issues. Too many voices will be raised in opposition.

In fact, where the Nizaamuddin faction predominates in the Cape, even there, they do not propagate Sa’d’s deviations in their tablighi bayaans. They adhere to the Six points. We, ourselves are unable to differentiate between the two Tablighi factions when they are conducting their programmes in the Musaajid. Recently there was a Tablighi group from Kashmir in our Musjid in Malabar, Port Elizabeth. Coincidentally there was also another group from Gauteng whose Ameer was Maulana Jeena from Kimberley. However, since both groups had pitched up at about the same time, we understood that they were all one big jamaat. We were not at all aware of the allegiances of the groups. But from Maulana Jeena’s statement that they were from Gauteng we inferred that the entire group was of the Raiwand faction.

After Salaat Maulana Jeena disappeared with his group never to be seen again by us. We wondered why only the Kashmiri brothers remained. There was not a single South African with the Kashmiri group, not even from the Nizaamuddin group. It later transpired that the Kashmiri group was from Nizaamuddin. But the conundrum of the absence of any local Nizaamuddin faction member remained. We managed to figure out the reason for the absence of local members of even the Nizaamuddin faction.

Although Musjidul Fuqara is a ‘free’ Musjid where jamaats from both factions are welcome, it has become the base for the Raiwand faction. This factor satanically prevents the members of the Nizaamuddin faction from coming to the Musjid. Thus, they neither come for Salaat nor render any nusrat of their own foreign members from the Nizaamuddin faction. From this the degree of mutual enmity can be gauged.

The Raiwand faction in Gauteng and Natal should dispense of the two diabolical measures and allow the Nizaamuddin faction free access. It is totally unexpected that they would speak anything out of line of the Six points in their public bayaans in the Musaajid.

It is also advisable, in fact urged, that the members of the one faction should participate in the bayaans of the other faction even if they do not at this stage of the hatred participate in the other programmes. If they participate in the bayaans with Ikhlaas, then InshaAllah, the animosity will gradually be replaced with brotherhood by Allah Ta’ala as is mentioned in the Qur’aan Majeed.

The trustees of Musjids, if they are not affiliated to the Raiwand faction should remain neutral and allow all jamaats. Insha-Allah, the groups on both sides of the fence will adhere to the Six points, and the screening will be obviated.

Both factions should reflect on the Aayaat and Ahaadith which they quote in their bayaans. In the prevailing climate of animosity, their da’wat rings hollow for lack of Ikhlaas. Both groups are the victims of nafsaaniyat.

NASEEHAT

THE QUR’AAN MAJEED SAYS:

“Hold on firmly to the Rope of Allah, all of you, and do not split up. And remember the Ni’mat (of brotherly love) of Allah on you when you were (Mutual) enemies. Then He Created mutual love in your Hearts. Thus by virtue of His Ni’mat (of brotherly love) you Became brothers whilst you were on the brink of the pit of the fire. Then He saved you from it. Thus does Allah explain His signs for you. Perhaps you will attain guidance.” [Aal-e-Imraan, aayat 103]

Members of the Tabligh Jamaat should incumbently contemplate (make muraaqabah) on this gracious Aayat so as to understand the nafsaaniyat currently gripping and convoluting their brains and contaminating their hearts with the pollution of animosity.

GUIDANCE FOR THE TWO TABLIGHI JAMAAT FACTIONS

STOP DEVOURING THE FLESH OF YOUR OWN BROTHERS

QUESTION

Is it Islamically valid for the Shura faction of the Tabligh Jamaat to debar  from the Masjids the Nizaamuddin faction? Ordinary people are absolutely confused at the  mutual animosity of the two groups. The work  of tabligh is being harmed by the infighting, The Shura group commits the following acts:

1. Banning Jamaats from Nizaamuddin

2. Closing Masaajid for Nizàamuddin Brothers.

3. Chasing away those Jamaats.

4. Locking Masaajid for these Jamaats.

5. Refusing sleeping facilities for these Jamaats and an array of other evil and vice.

Please comment and provide Shar’i direction for us ordinary people, and for the trustees of the Musjids who are pressurized to ban the Nizaamuddin faction.

ANSWER [by Mujlisul Ulama]:

The fracas and nafsaaniyat  inspired by shaitaan in the two camps of the Tabligh Jamaat are indeed extremely lamentable and disgusting. The spirit of the Deen has been smothered in the ranks of the JamaatIkhlaas has been extinguished. Their ‘tableegh’ is no longer motivated for the acquisition of the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and for the sake of the Deen.

The degree of mutual animosity is really shocking. The Tabligh Jamaat members at no stage before had even a small portion of their current mutual enmity for even the Qabar Pujaaris. Whilst they initially would not indulge even in gheebat of non-Muslims, now they feast on gheebat of one another. They devour the flesh of their dead brothers with a relish envied by shaitaan. And, all of this villainy is being perpetrated in the name of the Deen whilst there is in reality no Deen left in them. Minus Ikhlaas, the deeni activity is a massive deception.

All of the acts mentioned in the question are haraam. It is not permissible to descend to the degenerate ebb of preventing the other group from using the Musjids for their tableegh. In this, the Shura faction is guilty of an enormous notoriety.

Despite the split, there is no need for banning any of the groups. Neither should the Shura faction ban the Nizaamddin faction from Musjid it controls, nor vice versa. All Jamaats regardless of the faction they are aligned to, must be allowed free access to the Musjids. They must be allowed to carry out their tableegh activity. As long as they adhere to the SIX fundamental points of the Tabligh Jamaat, they must be allowed in the Musjids. It is their right to be in the Musjid.

Trustees of the Musaajid should not toe the haraam line of the Shura group regarding the ban slapped on the Nizaamuddin group. The Majlis is not in support of any of the groups to the detriment of the other. Our stance is that both factions should be allowed the Musjid facilities for their tableegh work on condition that there is no gheebat activity and no fitnah. The common and valid basis is the SIX points. Now when it is agreed to continue the work on these Six points, then there is absolutely no Shar’i reason for banning the Nizaamuddin group.

We urge the Shura group’s leadership to reconsider the haraam ban which has been imposed by them on their brothers of the Nizaamuddin faction. Leave the haraam, nafsaani and shaitaani leadership crisis to perish in Nizaamiddin and Raiwand. Why have they imported this satanism into foreign countries, thereby extinguishing the soul of the Jamaat?

Maulana Tootla Sahib of Stanger is perhaps the oldest Tablighi Jamaat worker in South Africa.  The youngster molvis who have banned him from the Musaajid simply because he aligns himself to the Nizaamuddin faction, are guilty of treason against not only the dead elders of the Jamaat, but against the Deen itself. How can they act so dastardly as to ban one of their most senior and most aged Workers who has dedicated his life to the Tabligh Jamaat? Has the Jamaat become a Mafia syndicate?

It is haraam for Musjid trustees to submit to the haraam ban ordered by the Shura group. Open up all the Musjids for all the tablighi groups of both factions. Just stick to the Six points and shaitaan will be defeated. Currently shaitaan is flowing in your veins like blood. Shaitaan has in fact become the ameer of the Tabligh Jamaat.

The chasm between the factions has been incrementally widening by the day. There appears no hope for bridging the gap. The degree of nafsaaniyat and shaitaaniyat at the top is appealingly shocking and lamentable. We call on the groups to fear Allah Ta’ala.

If the current mutual hatred and ideology of gheebat and haraam measures is not abandoned, then our advice is that all sincere Muslims who have Islam at heart and whose objective is the Pleasure of Allah Ta’ala, should withdraw from Tabligh Jamaat activity. It is harmful to remain in a group which utilizes the Deen for the attainment of nafsaani goals. May Allah Ta’ala grant then all good hidaayat. Was-salaam

Clarification of Darul Uloom Deoband about Ruju of Maulana Saad Kandhlawi

image

Darul Uloom Deoband

There are repeated requests from within India and outside that Darul Uloom Deoband should express its view regarding the Ruju (revocation) of Maulana Muhammad Saad from his comments about the Prophet Musa (peace be upon him).

It is hereby clarified that as far the Ruju of Maulana Muhammad Saad from this particular issue is concerned it is somehow satisfactory, but the ideological divergence of Maulana Muhammad Saad to which Darul Uloom Deoband has pointed out in its Stand cannot be ignored at all; this is because even after so-called Ruju he continues to make several other statements wherein he adopts the same innovative style, baseless conclusions and unwarranted application of Islamic resources (nusus) to his peculiar ideology of Dawah. This is the reason that not only we (the servants of Darul Uloom Deoband) rather the other Ulama-e-Haq are very much worried due to the overall ideological approach of Maulana Muhammad Saad.

It is our assertion that the least diversion from the path of Akabir (pious predecessors) is immensely harmful. Therefore, following the footstep of the predecessors, Maulana Muhammad Saad should be cautious enough in his statements and should stop the personal deductions (ijtihadat) from the Quran and Hadith; since his innovative deductions and interpretations denote as if he is bent to formulate a new group which will be different from the way of Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’at and Akabir. May Allah keep us firm and steadfast on the track of our pious predecessors, Amen!

Those who turn to us in this regard are once again reminded that Darul Uloom Deoband has distanced itself from the internal dispute of Tablighi Jamat and it has declared its impartiality clearly from the beginning. However, whenever people approach Darul Uloom for its views about wrong ideologies and thoughts, Darul Uloom always strives to guide the Ummah considering it its religious duty.

TABLIGH JAMAAT ON THE ROAD OF DEVIATION

by Dhaka Tribune

Tabligh Jamaat torn apart by internal dispute

Last updated at 12:11 AM November 16, 2017 (This article was first published on Bangla Tribune)

The dispute among Tabligh leaders over establishing dominance reached a new height, after two factions of the organisation engaged in a violent clash on Kakrail Mosque premises on Tuesday

Tabligh Jamaat, an Islamic non-political organization based in Bangladesh, is being ripped apart by a long standing internal dispute among its top leaders.

The dispute over establishing dominance reached a new height after two factions of the organization engaged in a violent clash on the premises of Kakrail Mosque in Dhaka on Tuesday.

According to sources from the Tabligh, scuffles between the two factions are becoming a regular occurrence.

Seven people are leading the Bangladesh chapter of Tabligh Jamaat as Faisal (Ameer). Syed Wasif Islam is one of the ameers and also a Majlis-e-Shura member of the organization.

A senior Tabligh leader named Professor Mushfiq Ahmed and his followers began a long-standing dispute with Syed Wasif after they accused him of misusing power. However, following Mushfiq’s death in 2015, his followers became isolated inside the organization.

Sources said the Nizamuddin Markaz of Delhi is considered the international headquarters of Tabligh Jamaat, and that Maulana Saad Kandhalvi is one of the leading influential leaders there.

Maulana Saad Kandhalvi, however, is also a religious leader known for making controversial statements which have caused uproar in India on several occasions.

He received harsh criticism for speaking against taking money for religious teachings and claiming that prayers cannot be offered if the devotee carries a mobile phone with a camera.

According to sources, among the faisals of Bangladesh Tabligh Jamaat, Maulana Muhammad Jubayer, Maulana Rabiul Haque and Maulana Omar Faruq have protested against the upcoming visit of Maulana Saad Kandhalvi to the country.

Qawmi Alems of Hefazat-e-Islam have also demanded cancellation of Maulana Saad’s visit.

Following the heated exchange between the top leaders, Madrasa students locked in a clash and carried out acts of vandalism which later lead to the violence in Tabligh Jamaat’s Kakrail Markaz on Tuesday.

Later, police arrived at the scene and brought the situation under control.

The Shura Council members of the Tabligh held a meeting on the same day and agreed upon some terms to help resolve the ongoing dispute.

When approached, the son of Syed Wasif Islam, Maulana Osama Islam, admitted to the incident. He said future disputes will be resolved in a civil manner through council meetings.

The leaders agreed that in future meetings, every decision must be approved by receiving two-thirds of the vote from the members. Disputes will also be resolved in council meetings.

It was also decided in the meeting that no one will be allowed to carry weapons at any Tabligh programme.

On the issue of inviting a guest from abroad, the leaders agreed that they will follow a decision made in a previous meeting attended by the home minister.

The agreement was signed by Maulana Muhammad Jubayer, Syed Wasif Islam, Maulana Rabiul Haque, Khan Muhammad Shahabuddin Nasim, Maulana Omar Faruq, Mohammad Mosharraf and Mohammad Hossain.

THE TWO TABLIGH FACTIONS AND THE MAJLIS

Question

Which Tabligh Jamaat group does The Majlis support? Should we join the World Shoora group or Molvi Sa’d’s group? In some articles The Majlis had criticized Molvi Sa’d. Now in the latest article the World Shoora group has been taken to task. What is the stand of the Majlis regarding these two Tabligh Jamaat groups?

ANSWER (by Mujlisul Ulama)

Our latest article should not be construed as an abrogation of our earlier criticism of Molvi Sa’d. That criticism stands. Our stance is stated with clarity in all our articles. There is no ambiguity in our stance and attitude. Several people have written to The Majlis posing similar questions as above. It is therefore appropriate to spell out our stance with greater clarity. This statement will be brief. A fuller and more detailed explanation shall be published soon, Insha-Allah.

We do not support any of the two factions of the Tabligh Jamaat. We believe that both factions are in error. Ikhlaas (Sincerity) has been eliminated in the wake of the mutual fracas, bitterness and enmity. The Tabligh Jamaat has violently and wildly veered off course – far from the Path which its original elders had steered along. The current course of the Jamaat is taking the Tabligh Jamaat further adrift from Siraatul Mustaqeem.

By having imported into South Africa and into all other countries the satanism of the leadership crises, the objective of the Tabligh Jamaat is being incrementally defeated and destroyed. The mutual hatred in the two factions is incredibly evil and haraam.

Our advice is that those who are genuinely concerned about the Deen and who genuinely desire to continue the Tabligh methodology of Maulana Ilyaas (Rahmatullah alayh), should distance themselves from the leadership calamity. They should ensure that they work strictly within the confines of the SIX points of the Jamaat, not diverging an iota from this course. They should forget Nizaamuddin and Raiwand. Both locations have become worldly stations offitnah. Just continue with the Tabligh work as if there is no leadership struggle. Do not enter into any controversy or discussion pertaining to the leadership satanism.

Shaitaan has a firm grip on the leaders and he is in fact in control of the current conflagration which is extinguishing the Tabligh Jamaat. Bypass Raiwand and Nizaamuddin, and work locally. There is more than ample Deeni services for the Tabligh Jamaat groups in all countries. All Tabligh groups should operate within the confines of their own respective countries.  It is not permissible to squander enormous sums of money travelling to other countries for Tabligh work.

The Tabligh Jamaat work has spread to almost all countries. There are sufficient local workers in every country to continue the work of the Tabligh Jamaat, hence there is no need to import foreign jamaats to compliment the local jamaats. Travelling from one country to another for Tabligh Jamaat activity has outlived its utility. Whilst there was a need for it some time ago, this need has been fulfilled. Now, the travelling is just baatiland wasteful touring. Too much wealth is squandered baselessly in these unnecessary journeys. And the worst curse is these women’s jamaats piloted by Iblees.

If the niyyat is to sincerely serve Allah Ta’ala, then abandon those who conduct themselves divisively and who make ‘tableegh’ of sectarianism. Do not be recruited to any group. Participate in the work, but if any shaitaaniyat or nafsaaniyat becomes an item of discussion or tableegh, then implement the Qur’aanic advice:

“When they (the Muttaqeen) hear nonsense, they turn away from it, and they say: ‘For us are our deeds, and  for you are your deeds. Salaam on you. We do not follow the jaahileen.”

THE RAIWIND IJTIMA AND THE STATE OF THE TABLIGH JAMAAT

[Mujlisul Ulama]

A Brother lamenting the errors, plight and state of the Tabligh Jamaat, wrote the following letter which we are reproducing verbatim – word for word. At the end of his letter, we shall state the Ruling of the Shariah pertaining to the forthcoming Raiwand Ijtima’. Our detailed response shall, Insha-Allah, follow in a separate article.

Tabligh Jamaat: The forthcoming Raiwind Ijtema of the New World Shoora and whether it is permissible to attend Raiwind Markaz

The truth proclaimed by an independent person free from want or dependence on mankind is feared most by those who rule over the masses with corrupt beliefs. Their aim is to cause corruption on earth. Their strategy is to cause fear in the masses so as to divide, conquer and rule. No less poisonous than the implementation of their baatil and false beliefs on the earth is the wink of acceptance and silence by the Ulema. Those who are referred to by Almighty Allah as dumb shaytaans. They are the  invisible right hand of those who spread mischief and corruption on the earth. From amongst those who are the most corrupt Rasulula sallaalahu aliahi wa sallam is reported to have said are the Aimma Mudhileen (Ulema e soo/ evil Ulema). He warned us to be more afraid of them than of  Dajjal. He ordered us to name them so that the ummat be saved from them. And never to join with them as Almighty Allah warns us in the Quran to not even tilt your head towards the oppressors (in support) lest you be with them in the fire of jahannum.

The Raiwind Annual Ijtema shall be taking place shortly, November 2017 under the organization of the New World Shoora members. Tariq Jameel and Molvi Ahmed Laat as well as Farouk Banaglaore shall be some of the main speakers.

The Majlis has previously published that it is not permissible to sit and attend the bayans of Tariq Jameel due to his many open sins and beliefs outside the ahlus sunna wa jamaat

As this Ijtema is imminent and people may be embarking on this trip to Raiwind or encouraging others to attend the fatwa and advices of Muhtarram Moulana Saab is urgently sought whether it is permissible to attend the forthcoming Ijtema at Raiwind Markaz.

Below are a few quotes taken from previous Majlis articles regarding Tariq Jameel

Tariq Jameel whom the Tablighi Jamaat (New World Shoora- writer) is honouring and promoting in conflict of Rasulullah’s warning:  “He who honours a man of bid’ah aids in the demolition of Islam.”, and, “When a faasiq is praised (and honoured), the Arsh (of Allah) shudders,”, has drifted exceedingly far from Siraatul Mustaqeem. His dalliance with Shiahs, his praise and defence of the deviate Maududi, his criticism of the Akaabir Ulama-e-Haq, and his public indulgence in stunts abhorrent to Islam, have rendered him a faasiq. The Tabligh Jamaat elders are in grievous error for giving him the platform to address Muslims.

Tariq Jameel statement: “Badr and Khandaq cannot become proof for Qitaal for nowadays. Our example is not found even in Seeratun Nabi rather our example is of Bani Israil. Fir’aun slaughtered children in front of a great Nabi like Musa,, but he (Nabi Musaa) did not resort to Qitaal” end of quote.

Reply of  Mufti Zarwali of Madrasah Ahsanul Uloom in Karachi. Such views are dangerous. Nowadays Tariq Jameel expresses such views. These are very inappropriate views. I’m afraid of his Imaan being stripped.>Date:20 December 2013.Time:52:58 – 53:28 minutes

BEWARE OF THE DECEPTION AND BAATIL WHICH TARIQ JAMEEL PROPAGATES. IT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE TO LISTEN TO HIS TALKS. (The Majlis) 13 Sha’baan 1435 – 12 June 2014

In another article of The Majlis regarding Tariq Jameel the Ummat is warned:

Muslims should beware of this fake ‘muballigh’. He is a threat for Imaan. He is a halaalizer of haraam. With his forked tongue he seeks to deviate people to take the path of Jahannam. It is not permissible to listen to his lectures. His speeches are ‘zukhruful qaul’ (satanically adorned speech) according to the Qur’aan Majeed.

1. The Majlis has already stated that it is not permissible to listen to the talks of Tariq Jameel. Tariq Jameel has nevertheless been appointed a Fasal or Deputy Leader of the New World Shoora. The Deputy Secretary of this New World Shoora is a South African local leader of this work, Abdus Sammad Chohaan. Many so called senior Ulema here in South Africa like Ebrahim Salejee (Mufti) who supports the New World Shoora and its leaders, other Salejee Ulema of Isipingo Beach involved in the work and the Ulema from the markaz of KZN Suleiman Khatani and the markaz of Gauteng Mufti Bhoola and Moulvi Nazeer are silent on this issue of Tariq Jameel, Ahmed Laat and other open sinners who they take as leaders and promote to their followers. These local Ulema and their followers are actively inviting Muslims to go to Raiwind in the next few days. They have been traveling around the country doing this. Molvi Suleiman Khatani a well-known, effective and influential orator in the style of Tariq Jameel is known for a long time to listen to the bayaans of the Mudhil Tariq Jameel and use his bayaans or parts thereof for his own bayaans. (Whilst The Majlis has warned us that it is impermissible to listen to his lectures and that his speeches are Zukhruful qauol ) The Ulema here are even stating that they and this World Shoora are on Haq! Meaning people like Tariq Jameel a senior member of their World Shoora  are on haq.

Muhtarram Moulana Saheb the people in South Africa want to know if the following as listed below which World Shoora leaders are involved in is the haq which their Ulema, leaders and followers are going around proclaiming?

TV photography., democracy, stopping Muslims who are out in the path of Allah from staying in Houses of Allah honoring faasiqoon friends and their co-leaders  By Allah I swear their Ulema here in South Africa as well as their leaders like A S Chohan  are stating that they are on Haq whilst knowing that their fellow companions, friends and leaders are involved in all these open sins. Is this not playing with the Deen of Allah?

Is this not deceiving the Muslims of South Africa?  To call all these sins HAQ?!! They are trapping and misleading many here in South Africa as a result causing much harm, confusion and disunity in the community. The fact that Ebrahim Salejee (Mufti) is in total support of the World Shoora and was instrumental in implanting them at the local markaz in KZN whilst expelling the other members from Nizaamudeen has led many thousands in KZN to follow blindly his support of this World Shoora.

2. Tariq Jameel sits with the Shoora of Raiwind Markaz in decision making. Decisions supposedly for the hidayat of mankind all over the world. Muhtarram Moulana Saab has already mentioned that it is not permissible to sit in his bayaans.

Tariq Jameel’s actions

Tahleelul Haraam, (quoted form an article of The Majlis regarding Ebrahim Bham whom the Majlis has labelled a murtad ) i.e. making halaal what Allah Ta’ala has made haraam is KUFR – Kufr which expels the halaalizer from the fold of Islam. The chap has not been branded ‘reverend abraham’ for no solid and valid reason. This reverend is the worst mudhil (a deviant who leads Muslims astray) with whom the Muslim community of South Africa has been cursed.

Just as the Majlis has published its stance on the kufr of Reverend Abraham Bham has halaalized – made ‘halaal’ – a litany of Haraam acts,  see below the actions of  Tariq Jameel and what he makes halaal:

Worshipping in a Shia musjid.

Pictures of animate objects

Appearing on television (Tariq Jameel indulges in this sin to a much larger degree than Ebrahim Bham. He has his own TV slot or serial like a serial sinner, openly sining in public with females as his audience and women as his interviewers in the name of Islamic programs)

Intermingling of sexes

Prohibitions of Hijaab

Music, videoing, mixed gathering of men and women, being interviewed on tv regarding Deen by a woman who is also uncovered

Supporting and promoting  clear-cut kufr ideologies of Shias and Moudoodi

Tv and photography from the Markaz of Raiwind (from the stage itself)

speaking with enthusiasm about his past sins with tv stars, when we have been commanded not to do so

Preferring democracy and majority vote over the rule and system of Allah

Tariq Jameel believes that Shias of the type who insult the wives and companions of Rasulula sallalahu alaihi wa sallam are not kaafir

Attempting to change the Deen which was perfected and completed by Rasulullah sallalahu alaihi wa sallam by stating that our example is not found in Seeratun Nabi rather our example is of Bani Israil (astagfirulla)

Attempting to change the laws of Allah by negating Qitaal

Tariq Jameel upon meeting a movie star made light and laughed about his own past sins in public in his own words which appeared in an article of the Majlis reproduced below”

As soon as I sat down, I started speaking about films. (If  this bootlicking moulvi had to visit a prostitute, the first thing he would have done would have been indulgence in zina, for such indulgence finds room in his concept of deceptive ‘tableegh’. – The Majlis) After sometime I felt that from 1960 to 1972,  he didn’t know the film industry as much as I knew. (He testifies to his own fisq and fujoor. – The Majlis) So he was awed by my knowledge. (Knowledge of  fisq, fujoor and Satanism – The Majlis) It was the knowledge of his profession. He was amazed and tense. Sometimes Dilip Kumar was mentioned, sometimes Raj Kapoor, sometimes Mehboob saheb,  and sometimes Madan Mohan

Regarding Ebrahim Bham and actions very similar and in many instances the same as above The Majlis states: A person who has destroyed his Imaan by halaalizing so many sinful activities is not a Muslim. He has adopted the path of irtidaad. For this reason SALAAT IS NOT VALID BEHIND REVEREND ABRAHAM BHAM.

What then is the status of Tariq Jameel and Ahmed Laat who now also openly and shamelessly appears on TV?  And the position in Islam of those who appoint these faasiqoon and the position of the masses who follow and take them as their leaders? And of those locally here who revere and honor these faasiqoon and call others to them? And of the foot soldiers who are going door to door here inviting to this very Markaz headquarters of Raiwind where the likes of Mudhil Tariq Jameel, Ahmed Laat, Farouk Bangalore are waiting to infuse them with their version of Islam?

2. Another key speaker at the forthcoming Raiwind Ijtema and at World Shoora Ijtemas all over the world is another World Shoora Executive member and open faasiq. is Molvi Ahmed Laat who openly appears on tv and you tube and allows himself to be photographed eg Appears on Youtube at train station with many cameras in his face giving an interview; Appears on TV sitting with Arabs and likewise more instances can be found

 Like Tariq Jameel has Ahmed Laat  also not committed the sin of Tahleelul Haraam, i.e. making halaal what Allah Ta’ala has made haraam (which the Majlis has previously stated is kufr) ?Attempting to change the Deen of Allah by making halal that which is haraam.  Yet they both are being honored and revered by the Ulema in this country by followers of the New World Shoora. Never mind that Almighty Allah is displeased with these two Mudhil Molvis they still follow them rather than being concerned with the anger and displeasure of Almighty Allah.

3. World Shoora member Farouk Bangalore has uttered a statement of kufr. Darul Uloom Nadwa has published a fatwa of kufr against. They sent their fatwa together wth proof of his utterances to Darul Uloom Deoband for their view.  Until today Darul Uloom Deoband remains silent neither refuting, answering or opposing the fatwa. When the hadeeth states words to this effect: He who remains silent when the truth is being trampled is a dumb shayataan. See letter of Darul Uloom Nadwa attached below.

4. One World Shoora senior member who shall be speaking at the Raiwind Ijtema and likewise is a key speaker at many Ijtemas has a long history of  fornicating and committing acts of homosexuality and sodomy in the Houses of Almighty Allah whilst in the path of Allah. Notwithstanding that he is at an advanced age, it does not preclude him from indulging in these evil acts of which he has been caught out and in some countries charges were to be laid but hushed up by other senior members of the Tabligh group. The elders of the New World Shoora know about his actions. He has done this in many continents of the world.  He has committed and attempted to commit zina or sodomy with young baalig males on Musjid land inside the House of Allah (though outside of the Musjid area) in many parts of the world. Proof is available. A recording of his confession is also available. Two from many such known incidents of his sodomy/ fornication occurred in South Africa.

The New World Shoora elders are aware of this but still give this person honor, give him main bayans at worldwide Ijtemas, and have made him a Hadhrat and New World Shoora member. When confronted by one father of a young male whom the (fake) hadhrat committed this evil sin on he confessed and admitted it. On his admission alone he would have been publicly shamed, named and punished in an Islamic era and country. It is highly unlikely after this public naming and flogging that he would have been made a leader, and World Shoora member.

Should Muslims be sitting in his bayaans and honoring him? He shall be a speaker at the Raiwind Ijtema next month.

5. Honoring faasiqoon and causing the Arsh of Allah to shake. The elders and followers of the World Shoora group are honoring open sinners like those mentioned above. They are breaking the laws of Almighty Allah as well as influencing their followers to respect and honor these open sinners. Whilst these speakers shall be giving their bayaans at the forthcoming Raiwind Ijtema the Arsh off Allah shall be shaking. Should the followers from South Africa be going to attend this Ijtema that is going to be filled with these type of faasiqoon speakers and with elders who appoint them? Should the South African Muslims and the ummat be sitting in a lecture where the Arsh of Almighty is shaking and Allah is angry with that gathering?

6. Tv, videoing and photography of faces is being done at the Raiwind Markaz and from the stage whilst bayaans and the Ijtema are going on. This is being done with their leaders  or elders knowledge and consent. This will draw the anger and adhaab of Allah at the Ijtema. Should South African Muslims or Muslims in the entire world be attending this Ijtema given that photography and videoing is taking place from the mimbar. There is adequate proof of this having been done at previous raiwind Ijtemas, With their faasiqoon going to be delivering lectures and who appear openly on TV, it is most unlikely that this time there will be no photography and tv shows made of the Ijtema and put on youtube for sinful entertainment.

Are the New World Shoora elders who are running the Raiwind Ijtema not guilty of deceiving the masses, their followers? Of putting the masses into mass group sin? Are they not guilty of promoting an honoring faasiqoon and allowing them to spread baatil ideologies? Are they not guilty of inviting towards haraam, with tv etc being propagated from the markaz?  A new recruit will come back brainwashed that this is sharia, this is haq as they claim, and that tv and photos etc are permissible. That Tariq Jameel, Ahmed Laat etc are the best leaders who they shall mimic and try to follow. And meanwhile door to door the foot soldiers in South Africa are going around weekly inviting to the ultimate tashkeel of 4 months in the path of Allah (astagfirullah) to go to Raiwind and come back with a new deviated form of Islam. This weekly in and out ghusht of theirs is never without the 4 months tashkeel which includes going to Raiwind as part of that 4 month learning of ’new’ Islam taught by the “new” World Shoora.

The most shocking aspect of all this is that the Muslim leaders in this country like Ebrahim Salejee, Sulelman Khatani, senior Salejee Ulema from Isiapingo Beach, Ulema from Gauteng Bhoola Mufti) Molvi Nazeer, all these senior Ulema are inviting to this haraam that is going on in Raiwind. They say that this World Shoora is on Haq!

This by Allah is a very very serious state of affairs if we had to measure the Deen in our country. Allah save and guide us. These Ulema should hang their heads in shame and openly repent. The whole lot of them and more nit mentioned here, for misleading the Ummat. They should do so before they are suddenly snatched by Allah and will be given a  most severe reckoning for having duped and deceived the Muslims of South Africa.

7. Israaf Are the workers not indulging in Israaf (wastage of the wealth, health and time that Almighty. Allah has bestowed the Umma with) by wasting thousands of rands and wastage of time by going to the Raiwind Ijtema and sitting in the bayaans of the faasiqoon whilst being filmed for the tv and youtube entertainment?

There are many other sins that the New World Shoora are presently committing including promoting democracy, deceiving, speaking lies, oppression, stopping Muslims form the path of Allah and from the Houses of Allah etc,. However the purpose of this letter is to enquire whether Muslims are permitted to go to the Rawiind Ijtema given the facts highlighted in this letter.

Rasulula slallahu alaihi wa sallam is reported to have said that we shall be in the next world with whom we love and be with in this world. If the followers of the New World Shooraa are going to honor and revere such faasiqoon, play their cds and bayaans in their homes and cars, and encouraging others to go to Raiwind and listen to the faasiqoon, then will not the followers be with these faasiqoon in the next world? These new recruits will return home  and influence their wives and children to love people like Tariq Jameel and Ahmed Laat and sodomists and fornicators as well as elders who honour faasiqoon.

Like the multiplier effect these newly brainwashed recruits or foot soldiers shall  be guilty of then going door to door and calling here locally,  inviting further recruits for the next Raiwind Ijtema where faasiqqon are to be honored, the sins tv etc will be committed. To say that we should not worry or concern ourselves with leaders whom we follow is a recipe for misguidance. Almighty Allah commands us to stay away from oppressors. To refrain from the company (and bayans) of open sinners. To never aid them (by sending new recruits to them and by being followers of them). To never assist in their numbers growing so that they can milk the ummat whilst stealing their Deen and Iman at the same time as well.

8.Tashkeel tashkeel or encouraging other Muslims to go for 4 months and to go in this instance specifically to Raiwind is a part of every Bayan that is given in every in and out ghusht and in every Bayan that a jamaat is out in the path of Allah in. They the followers are actively calling towards faasiqoon, towards faajiroon, towards those who commit kufr, towards honoring these kaafir and faasiqoon. They are guilty of corrupting the beliefs and Imaan of new recruits who may be far from Deen and have little Deeni knowledge.

The foot workers are misleading new followers and recruits towards darkness, towards faasiqoon, towards Raiwind, towards believing that all the sins being committed as mentioned above are part of Deen.

This new recruit who may be coming out of  for the first time in his life  will see pictures and videos of Tareeq Jameel plastered on the streets and shops leading to the markaz of raiwind. This new recruit who may not know much of the sharia will most likely think that this is acceptable in Islam.

The new recruit will sit in the bayans and see people go crazy for the evil mudhil Tareeq Jameel and Ahmed Laat. The new recruit will come back to his home convinced that the deen as shown by Tareeq Jameel, Ahmed Laat and other open sinners is the true way. Leave alone those who may become influenced after going to Raiwind, today with the likes of Molvi Khatani who extracts a lot of his bayans form the bayans of Tareeq Jameel are influenced by such people by listening to their cds

The masses are blinded and cannot or do not wish to see the following:

1. Their elders whom they follow are open sinners, faasiqoon whom Allah takes an oath never to guide (unless they repent)

2, they have stopped people in the path off Allah thus falling onto the category of oppressors whom Allah TaAlla curses in the Quran

3. They are getting sin whilst thinking that they are getting reward.

4. They are going door to door inviting towards sin without even knowing or wanting to accept, which is the result of the most terrible sin, pride.

5. They have fallen into the Abu Talib syndrome or sin. Where many of them are doubting this New World Shoora but cannot leave them, because “what will the people say” Just as Abu Talib who loved and did so much for his beloved nephew the Nabi and Rasool of Allah salllahau alaihi wa sallam. He knew that his nephew was on haq, He knew that Islam was the only accepted Deen by Allah.. But he preferred to pass away in sin as a kaafir disbeliever,  worrying what will the people say. Today we are experiencing the same  syndrome or sin here in South Africa. The followers are blind followers of their hadhrats. And many Ulema are under the clutches of people like Ebrahim Salejee (Mufti) who has sided with the faasiqoon and remains silent about all the sins this fellow leaders are committing. This is because the Ulema are paid their salaries in many instances through the control of many madressashas under the control of Ebrahim Salejee (Mufti). Hence they silently go with him and majority, who are amongst the faasiqoon. This is sadly the reality we Muslims in South Africa are facing and are afraid of people like Ebrahim Salejee and their ilk to speak out about. A few leading Ulema misleading the Ummat here.

Any person who does speak out about a sin of an Aaalim, a sin that is causing people to go towards jahannum is immediately character assassinated  They protect their buzrooqs and hadhrats at the expense of the laws and sharia of Allah. They fall directly under the ayat Allah mentioned of those christians and jews who took their priests and rabbis as their gods. This is the real jihad of our time, fighting the Uleme soo who are misleading the ummat to hell. And by Allah He WILL assist those who will fight those whom His Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said are from amongst the worst under the canopies of the skies and who should be named so that the ummat be saved from them.

If these Ulema  and their followers were really on haq, they would see the sins of these elders and leaders being committed and openly and happily thank any person who showed them their manifest errors.

9. The Ulema and leaders of the New World Shoora who remain silent, who lead the Ummat towards Aimma Mudhillen and who honor the faasiqoon

Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “He who remains silent about the Haqq is a Dumb Shaitaan.” Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not say that he is ‘like’ a dumb shaitaan. Nabi-e-Kareem (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said that he is in fact a veritable “DUMB SHAITAAN

The Deputy Secretary of the New World Shoora is a South African Abdul Sammad Chohan who resides in Isipingo Beach KZN, South Africa. He has surrounded himself with Ulema who silently condone all the sins that they are aware of but remain silent. Through their silence and not doing the wajib act of forbidding evil they are complicit in funnelling many unwary and  innocent new Muslim recruits into the hands of the Aimmaa Mudhilleen and to Raiwind Markaz. They are whom Allah refers to as the dumb shaytaans.

On 31st January 2017, A S Chohan issued a letter to the Muslim public.

Of importance in the letter is that A S Chohan stated

“Just as Deen is complete, the work of Daawat is also complete……nothing to add or subtract”

“Our work has always been guided by the Ulama and Mashaaikh from the time of Ml Ilyaas SB (RA)”

“Deen and shariat are above our work. Our work will always be under the shariat. Not above or beyond it. (end of quote)

What is extremely disconcerting is that Abdul Sammad Chohan is well aware of the open sins mentioned above of the Senior World Shoora members who are Ulema and called Hadrats. He is their Deputy Secretary. He states that this work will always be under the shariat. A S Chohan, their Deputy Secretary is blatantly lying. The New World Shoora who he represents are flagrantly and openly breaking the laws of Almighty Allah whilst lying and deceiving the masses at the same time with the aid of the Ulama here in South Africa who are proclaiming that they are on Haq.

“Deen and shariat are above our work. Our work will always be under the shariat.”  however they lie in the name of the shariat of Allah

They are allowing tv and photography in the markaz of Raiwind

They are appointing and honoring people like Tariq Jameel, Ahmed Laat and Farouk Bangalore who have all committed many open sins and continue to do so.

They are honoring a confirmed homosexual fornicator and sodmomist who has done these deeds on the properties of the House of Almighty Allah in numerous continents.

They are promoting democracy and majority vote. (This shall be shown in more detail in a separate letter Insha Allah).

They are not only keeping quiet about the sins of those they are honoring but they are spreading falsehood to the Ummat by saying that they are on haq. Can all of this be regarded as Haq?

Is the statement above therefore not totally false, deceptive and misleading to the Ummat?

Their Ulema who they consult with in KZN is presently being led by Ebrahim Salejee (Mufti) and his relatives of the Salejee Ulema from Isipingo Beach and Sueliman Khatani (markaz KZN Imam) who has for long being honouring faasiqoon at the markaz despite being warned and told by many to stop this. . In Gauteng Mufti Bhhola and Molvi Nzaeer (Gauteng Markaz) are all well aware of the open sins of their friends, leaders and companions. Their ameer Dadahbhoy is in fact a very close friend to the fornicator and to Ahmed Laat the TV photography halaalizer. He too is aware of all the wrongs of their leaders. And not only are they remaining quiet as dumb shayateen whilst the Haq is being trampled but they are aiding in deceiving the Ummat by honoring these open sinners. They call towards them, they are inviting the Ummat to go to the Raiwind markaz to listen to them, and they invite these and other faasiqoon to the marakiz here in South Africa.

Whilst the New World Shoora Deputy Secretary AS Chohan boldly pronounces:

“Our work has always been guided by the Ulama and Mashaaikh from the time of Ml Ilyaas SB (RA)”

Which Ulema? Dumb Shayateen who nod and wick silenlty whislt their accomplices are sinning openly?

Which Ulema? Those who transgress the laws of Allah openly?

They choose to be  under the guidance of these Ulama?

10. Consuming of Haraam food

If any person shall be going out for jamaat for 4 months and to Raiwind the place they leave from is either the markaz of Durban Musjid Hilaal (where faasiqoon are honoured) or the Johannesburg Markaz. In both these marakiz it has been confirmed that they knowingly and willingly feed those in the path of Almighty Allah stunned meat. Food which the Ulema e Haq have repeatedly stated is haraam. Bhoola (Mufti) their leader of the Markaz Johannesburg when confronted with this feeding the guests of Allah with haraam food a few years ago, brushed it off and said there is nothing wrong with this stunned meat. So if a person shall be going to the raiwind Ijtema shortly they will first be nourished with this haraam meat before setting off on their journey. Please correct me if I am wrong, but have they not consumed haraam food? And at the least such impure food and such food that has been reared under oppression that the effects of oppression will render their duas and ibadat ineffective? Or does this filthy impure food  prepare them for what awaits them in Raiwind…the lectures of the faasiqoon with the tv and other cameras waiting to film their next “Islamic” movie.

And their Ulema (and followers) claim that they are on Haq!!

11. These are the Ulema and leaders in this work in South Africa who are encouraging the Muslims to go to Raiwind.

An extremely serious matter is that their elders state that the Usool or guideline in the work of Tabligh is that a person should go out in the path of Almighty Allah with their OWN  money. They state that the world’s problems and the problems of the Ummat in particular is one of incorrect yaqeen or conviction. In looking at the creation instead of the Creator. In maal or things instead of amaal or actions. This is indeed very inspiring to hear. So you imagine the leaders will be the epitome of what they guide the new recruits about.

They  preach further that one day in the path of Allah with one’s own wealth is better than a year in the path of Allah with the wealth of others.

Alas it has been exposed recently that the vast majority of these New World Shoora elders and here in South Africa in particular live off the dole or charity of others. The Deputy Secretary of the World Shoora as well. They go out in the path off Allah with the money and charity of others, in conflict of what they preach to their mass followers. One of their most senior members in this country even lives off charity and begging whilst at home and not in the path of Allah. This he has been doing for the past 50 years. He has no shame to ask of people. How can they state the guideline is to go out with one’s own wealth whist they seek sponsors to live at home and travel in the path of Allah. Not forgetting that they always make sure that they always expect the best of accommodation and food wherever and whenever they travel and at the Ijtemas.  Whilst those poor souls who had been moved by their orator’s bayaans, those poor souls who pay to go out in the path of Allah with their own funds live a discriminatory life whilst out in the path of Allah or at the Ijtemas. In rain sodden tents, doing car duty, climbing mountains and living a much harder life in the path of Allah. Whilst their leaders goad them on there is much reward for what you are doing. Is this not  hypocrisy? Is this the Islam of Our beloved Rasulullah Sallallahu alayh wa sallam?!  And they claim that they are on Haq?!

To the extent that even the Ijtema in KZN is annually run by two people who collect funds (secretly and very discreetly)  never giving an account to the public of how much money came in and what is left. One of these two people is the same elder  leader who begs from others for his provision and sustenance. Yet the Tabligh group members of their World Shoora state that one of the reasons of going in the path of Allah is to correct our incorrect YAQEEN . And to put our reliance totally on our Creator.  Is this not hypocritical  to say from these elders? When will the leaders yaqeen ever be corrected if they live of sponging and asking from the creation?

Similarly there are others who have been made deputies or fasals in KZN and Gauteng who are living off the charity of others by  stretching  out their hands to do this work. Whilst these deputies and fasals give weekly hidayat lectures stating that one should correct their yaqeen! And turn to Allah the Creator instead of the creation whom these fasals instead look to. There is much proof of many of these instances, with names that could be mentioned. Such hypocrisy and mass deception of the Ummat!

The Ulema in South Africa, the World Shoora elders and leaders are making friends with people who are openly sinning. And honoring them. Leading the Muslim ummat towards them. To their bayaans and Ijtemas.  People like Molvi Laat, Tariq Jameel and others. These faasiqoon who are opposing Allah and trying to change the Deen of Allah.

Whilst Almighty Allah says

Allah TaAlla says (interpretation of the meaning): “You will not find any people who believe in Allaah and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allaah and His Messenger…” [al-Mujaadilah 58:22]

 Allah TaAlla says (interpretation of the meaning): “And incline not towards those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you…” Hood 11:1

In conclusion will Muhtarram Moulana Saab urgently give a fatwa whether it is permissible to go to Raiwond, to their Ijtema and to call towards raiwind and their leaders. It is requested that this letter be published either edited, with additions or deletions or as is.

I request your much needed duas for my protection, guidance and mercy of Almighty Allah and that He forgive this sinner completely before maut. And for my family.

In conclusion Muhtarram Moulana Saab I am not involved in either the Nizaamudeen faction or this World Shoora group.

I have no bias towards any one group but simply that this sinner, his family and progeny and our Ummat be saved from the fitnaa which this sinner has observed in this World Shoora people.

(End of the Brother’s letter)

THE SHARIAH’S RULING

(1) In Several past articles we had explained why Tariq Jamil is person’a non grata in terms of the Shariah. He is a faasiq and a mudhil (one who misleads Muslims). He had also expressed evil beliefs. It is therefore lamentable that the Tabligh Jamaat utilizes this person at its Ijtimas.

It is quite clear that the purpose for employing this character to deliver bayaans is to draw the crowds with this his glib tongue and his adorned speeches. A grave shaitaani disease which is affecting the Tabligh Jamaat is to employ even haraam means for the attainment of Deeni objectives. This is a shaitaani idea. Haraam means may not be used for the acquisition of the objectives of the Deen. Allowing a faasiq-mudhil to deliver the bayaan is a haraam act of honouring a faasiq.

(2) Besides the sin of honouring the faasiq, the greater danger is the dhalaalah (deviation) of this man. When a mudhil is honoured and allowed to lecture to Muslims, the masses will most certainly understand that the person is ‘halaal’; that he is a qualified Deeni guide and may be followed. Thus, the Tabligh Jamaat becomes a sponsor of baatil and dhalaal  by permitting Tariq Jamil the platform at its Ijtima’.

(3) The other molvis and jamaat workers who will be lecturing at the bayaan are also fussaaq and mudhilleen. Their free indulgence in photography and videoing and their acceptance of these haraam institutions render them confirmed fussaaq and mudhilleen.

The curses of picture-making, videoing and television are diseases which have become intensely prevalent in all circles and at all levels of Muslim society. The evil and villainy of these shaitaani practices are no longer understood nor accepted. Even the Ulama are the victims of this satanism. Instead of  standing up in defence of the Deen, the Ulama not only condone the evil practices, but actually promote them with their silence, baseless interpretation and practical indulgence.

(4) Added to the aforementioned evils, is the current miserable and heart-rending plight of the Ummah globally. Millions of Muslims are languishing in miserable conditions of suffering. The plight of the Syrian and Rohingya refugees is still in the limelight. In the face of all this suffering of the Ummah, Muslims will be squandering millions of rands for a three day merrymaking outing at Raiwand.

Like Madrasah jalsahs, Tablighi Jamaat ijtimas of the scale planned for Raiwand have outlived their utility. These gatherings and functions are now   merrymaking functions where the salient feature is Israaf –squandering   Allah’s bounties of wealth, food and time.

Undertaking expensive and wasteful journeys for the sake of the three-day Raiwand Ijtima is NOT PERMISSIBLE.  Even the journey itself is bedevilled by a host of haraam factors which are committed for attending a function which has no Sunnah basis.  In fact, due to the evils attending the Ijtoma, as explained above, the journey to Raiwand and participation in the gathering  where Fussaaq will be  the ‘guides’ is not permissible.

Intelligence and the demand of Imaan demand that the money be diverted to alleviate the pitiable suffering of the millions of Muslims scattered all over the world. Rasulullah (Sallallahun alayhi wasallam) said:

“The Muslimoon are like one man. If the eye pains the whole body is affected. If the head pains, the whole body is affected.”
