The Reality and Virtue of the Tablighi Jamaat

In this age of anxiety where humanity is in error. There, some pious and God-fearing people consider the call of truth as their first duty. They also respect the reality and virtue of the Tablighi Jamaat and feel its importance and necessity. These soldiers of Allah surrender their homes and families to Allah and stand up for the exaltation of the true religion.

The reality and virtue of the Tablighi Jamaat:

History bears witness to the fact that the Prophets formed with them a group. Which, assumed the responsibility of the call to truth. After the death of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), the Companions made the collection of hadiths a beacon for themselves. They took guidance from the Qur’an. They preached Islam (The True Religion) passionately. Islamic history bears witness to the sufferings of Muslims for the sake of religion.

Muslim clerics continue to organize gatherings for the betterment of the nation. These gatherings are supervised by the Tablighi Jamaat. Tablighi Jamaat workers camp in an open space at the Priya Masjid and invite local People to the true religion.

Tablighi Jamaat centers are established in many places. The first center of the Tablighi Jamaat is located at the Bangla Mosque in Nizamuddin Auliya, Basti, Delhi.

Beginning and introduction of Tablighi Jamaat:

The Tablighi Jamaat was established in 1926 through Maulana Ilyas Kandhalvi. It was based on the school of thought of Hanafi jurisprudence (Deobandi sect).

The main purpose of this group was to acquaint the Muslim nation with the true spirit of the divine religion.

Maulana Ilyas started his da’wah with a resident on the outskirts of Delhi. While teaching him a religion, he thought about the actual condition of islamic education. He thought that our institutions are teaching religion but are not producing good preachers. With this school of thought, he changed his teaching style. He started preaching along with education and thus started regular preaching in Nizamuddin near Delhi.

The first congregate of the Tablighi Jamaat was held in India in 1941. About twenty-five thousand people participated in that conversion . Until 1940, the convene was confined to United India. Then with the formation of Pakistan and Bangladesh, the jamaat began its struggle to reach the whole world. Thus it spread to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Philippines, and Indonesia. The jammat now has the largest number of supporters in mainland Asia. It consists the major visitors from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The reality and virtue of the Tablighi Jamaat:

Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia – January 9, 2020: Mid day prayers at the Zahir Mosque (Malay: Masjid Zahir) in Alor Setar, Kedah, Malaysia. The Zahir Mosque is state mosque and one of the grandest and oldest mosques in Malaysia, having been built in 1912. The Zahir Mosque has been voted as one of the top 10 most beautiful mosques in the world.

Objections to the Tablighi Jamaat:

Those who distance themselves from theology raise many objections to the Tablighi Jamaat. Sometimes they questioned about tabhlighi jamaat’s performance. Sometimes they are debated in the name of jihad. Sometimes atheists object preachers to live outside their homes. And sometimes they accused preachers of being careless in providing for their families.

But fortunately for those soldiers of Allah who preferred the pleasure of Allah. They don’t waste their time in arguing with those who raised objections. These people are so humbly engaged in trying to show the way to the guidance of humanity immersed in the darkness of ignorance for Allah. They do not even respond to the objectors. They just leave their case to Allah.

Principles of Da’wah and Preaching in Islam:

A six-point agenda was drawn up to join Maulana Ilyas Kandhalvi’s Tablighi Jamaat. These six points are also called six attributes, six principles, and six numbers. These six-point rules are listed below

  • ۔Having strong faith.
  • Offering of prayers
  • To be willing for religious knowledge and to be engaged in the remembrance of God
  • Respecting the life and property of the Muslim Ummah
  • Being sincere in intention
  • Inviting and preaching the religion

In addition to all this, following the command to do good and forbidding evil.

The work of the Tablighi Jamaat:

Who is more fortunate than the man who spends his most precious asset in the way of Allah? When a nation spends its asset for the sake of Allah, its fruits also increased.

The most valuable asset of human life is time, health and money. The Tablighi Jamaat, by the grace of God, is doing all these three things in the name of Islam. These Mujahids of Allah do not take financial help from anyone and do not become a burden on anyone. They are engaged in the service of the religion of Allah with utmost sincerity. Thanks to tablighi jamaat, so many fallacious and misguided youth took the path of guidance and became pious and prayerful.

May Allah help these pious people in their sincere task and help the Muslim nation to follow in their footsteps.
