Topic: The Tableeghee Encyclopedia: A Guide to the Heretical Sect of Shirk and Dalaal ? Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh

abu.abdul.azeez    -- 08-10-2003 @ 6:37 AM

All Praise to Allaah, the All-Mighty, the Dominator, for guiding us to the Salafee manhaj and keeping us away from the innovations and shirkiyyat of the devious, demented warriors of Satan and the gates of Hell to which they all call, as the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) stated.

And from the most evil of these callers to the gates of Hell from whom we seek the protection of Allaah is Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh - a sect, which, in the name of da?wah, has spread colossal levels of shirk and zandaqah throughout the world, specifically in lands of kufr, where knowledge and Salafiyyah is scarce, and the refuge is with Allaah. And indeed, the ?Ulamaa? have made it clear that such deviants are more harmful and more devastating upon the Ummah than the kuffaar themselves. Furthermore, due to the aid of Ikhwaan ul-Mufliseen (the other major sect of the 14th-15th centuries) and their destruction of the principles of walaa? and baraa? and refutation and criticism, innovators like the Tableegh have been allowed to spread with little resistance. Yet, as the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) stated, there will always remain a group apparent upon the truth which will not be affected by those who oppose them nor befriend them ? and this group is the Salafiyyoon, Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah.

And from the traits of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah is that they perform jihaad upon the innovators and heretics within the Ummah before the kuffaar outside of it. And this jihaad is a jihaad of proofs and knowledge-based refutations, not a jihaad of the sword. Ibn Qayyim stated in the prologue of his mighty Nooniyyah:

And the jihaad with the proofs and tongue comes before the jihaad with the sword and spear?
And the Salafee ?Ulamaa? of this era, such as the likes of Muhammad Aal ash-Shaykh, Shaykh Ibn Baaz, Shaykh al-Albaanee, Shaykh Ibn ?Uthaymeen, Shaykh al-Fawzaan, Shaykh Rabee?, Shaykh Hammood at-Tuwayjiree, Shaykh al-?Abbaad, Shaykh Hammaad al-Ansaaree, and others, have been at the forefront of this battle between tawheed and shirk, sunnah and bida?. That said, my intention, and may Allaah accept that from me, is to make this thread a weapon for the English-speaking Salafiyyoon to use against this heretical cult in carrying out this jihaad. In due time, in shaa? Allaah, I will add links to other material found on this forum as well as translate and post new fataawa and audio from the ?Ulamaa? for benefit. It should become an encyclopedia for information about this heretical cult to which anyone can refer for information.

Also... there was a brilliant lecture delivered by Muhammad al-Haajiree on the Tableegh which I would like to translate and post bit-by-bit. I am still waiting for a short resume or biography about him, although it has been said that he is well-known to the ?Ulamaa?, like Shaykh Rabee? al-Madkhalee. May Allaah preserve them all.

Lastly, anyone is free to assist in this endeavor, and praise be to Allaah, the Lord of All the Worlds.

Imaam Muhammad Bin Saalih al-?Uthaymeen (d. 1421) Declares Tableegh and Ikhwaan to be Innovators

Some of the fitnah-makers from Tableegh used to use some speech of the Shaykh in their defense. The above narration, however, essentially slams the door in their lying, sinning faces, wal-Hamdulillaah.

And the point is moot anyway, since dozens of refutations have come down upon Tableegh and Ikhwaan from those who are more familiar with them and their ways. And this is an old trick used by the people of dalaal, i.e. to take the speech of the ?Ulamaa? who are not aware of their reality and avoid that which has come from those who are more aware and have more expertise in such affairs. The current situation of ash-Shaykh ?Abbaad is an example of how the hearts of the innovators resemble one another, and refuge is with Allaah.

The Imaam and Muhaddith Hammaad al-Ansaaree (d. 1418) : Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh are not from Ahl us-Sunnah

Another in a long list of names of the major scholars who have declared Tableegh to be a sect from amongst the 72 sects of the fire. He mentions how the Tableegh and Ikhwaan cannot be considered from Ahl us-Sunnah because they are upon ideologies that oppose those of Ahl us-Sunnah. The simplicity of this concept did not prevent al-Ma'ribee (and others before him) from creating confusion and concocting different ways to include such innovators into the fold of Ahl us-Sunnah. Wallaahu ul-Musta'aan.

The Tableegh Hate Shar?ee Knowledge

This post illustrates how the Tableegh flee from knowledge and have no respect for the major Scholars. Both Shaykh Hammad al-Ansaaree and Saalih al-Fawzaan recall how the Tableegh got up and left the masjid as the duroos began.

Also, Shaykh al-Ansaaree's statements indicate the insincerity and corruption of the Tableegh in that they make khurooj to Saudi Arabia (a land clearly not in need of their likes) to make ?da?wah? while their headquarters is located in India ? one of the world?s greatest cesspits of idolatry and zandaqah.

NEW! - Shaykh Muqbil (d. 1422) Destroys the Tableegh and Exposes Their Being Welcomed by the Kuffaar

Question: What is your statement about Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and their way of da?wah, and what do you know about them?

Answer: The response: ash-Shaykh Hammood Bin ?Abdullaah at-Tuwayjiree wrote a treatise named ?al-Qawl ul-Baleegh fit-Tahdheer min Jamaa?at it-Tableegh (An Eloquent Statement of Warning Against Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh).? I advise reading this and likewise [what has been written by] the brother Faalih al-Harbee and the brother ash-Sharqaawee, from the residents of Jeddah. And the writings are many in clarifying their aspects of shirk and Soofiyyah, and what they are upon from misguidance. And their da?wah is a dead da?wah, and if it isn?t dead, it wouldn?t have gone to the communist lands during the times of communism[1].

And there came to us a French brother and we said to him: ?Are we able to go to your land for da?wah to Allaah??

He said: ?You are not able [to come and perform da?wah] except if it is in the name of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, as it is permitted for them.?

And their da?wah, if it was in the time of Abee Jahl, he would not have rejected them. So they call to six practices[2], so their da?wah is founded upon ignorance (jahl). And Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta?aala says:

 Yusuf (12):108

Say (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)): "This is my way; I invite unto Allh (i.e. to the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) with sure knowledge, I and whosoever follows me (also must invite others to Allh i.e to the Oneness of Allh - Islmic Monotheism) with sure knowledge. And Glorified and Exalted be Allh (above all that they associate as partners with Him). And I am not of the Mushrikn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allh; those who worship others along with Allh or set up rivals or partners to Allh)."

And those, the peddlers of alcohol and the average person who doesn?t know a single thing enters amongst them. So their da?wah is a da?wah of ignorance and misguidance. And I do not advise [you] to perform khurooj with them, and how nice would it be if they were prevented [from activity]. Never mind their scheduled times of khurooj, you would go out with them three days, or a month, or three months, and all of these are innovations[3]. And Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta?aala says:

 At-Taghabun (64):16

So keep your duty to Allh and fear Him as much as you can; listen and obey; and spend in charity, that is better for yourselves. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, then they are the successful ones.

So you perform khurooj as per your level of activity and your capability. And I advise [you] to perform khurooj with Ahl us-Sunnah, for indeed, you will benefit by returning to the Qur?aan, memorizing ahaadeeth, warning against shirkiyyaat, or [partaking in] knowledge-based discussions. So we not in need of going khurooj with them.


[1] In other words, they were allowed to travel around and perform da?wah within communist countries without resistance. On a similar note, the Tableegh are known and widespread in the Jewish state - again, they are given no resistance simply because the kuffaar are well aware of their evil effects on the Ummah.
[2] They are the six points of Tableegh, which in shaa? Allaah will be expounded upon later in this thread.
[3] It is actually 3 days per month, 40 days per year, and 4 months per lifetime. Irrespective of the exact numbers, the act of placing specific limits and timetables for khurooj is an innovation for which Allaah has sent down no authority.

Statements of the Scholars of the Sunnah Regarding Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh - Booklet by Shaykh Rabee' al-Madkhalee

This is an magnificent booklet of fataawa of the Major Scholars about the Tableegh. It was compiled and commented on by Shaykh Rabee? al-Madkhalee. Here is the original Arabic:

And an English translation:

And a compact version in Arabic as well:

Please print out the compact version, hand it out, and post it everywhere you can ? let it serve as mercury in the bloodstream of this deviant sect?s da?wah. They were (and still are) quick to cite the 17 year-old fatwa of Shaykh Bin Baaz supposedly in their favor[1], yet they run away from his three fataawa as brought by Shaykh Rabee?, two of which were issued only a few years before the Shaykh?s death. So let this serve as a reminder to them that they should repent to Allaah before it is too late, and that they have been exposed by the ?Ulamaa?. While we sincerely desire guidance for them, this does not alleviate the obligation of warning against them and being harsh in doing so, as was the madhhab of the Salaf.

Also of special attention is the fatwa of Shaykh ?Abdur-Razzaaq ?Afeefee (d. 1414), it is short, but full of interesting points ? he was a member of the Lajnah and was known for having a vast knowledge of the deviant sects. One brother on sahab did a nice commentary on this fatwa, perhaps I will adapt it and post it here in due  time, in shaa? Allaah.

The booklet also contains a 40 year-old fatwa from Shaykh Muhammad Bin Ibraaheem Aal ash-Shaykh (d. 1389) in which he made tabdee? of the Tableegh and mentioned how they call to shirk and grave-worship. This fatwa indicates the fact that the deviance of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh is nothing new among the People of Knowledge, and that they have been warned and advised for decades. Thus, the statement that ?they don?t know? or that ?they haven?t been advised? is clearly false and has no basis.

[1] The reality is otherwise, as will in shaa? Allaah be mentioned later when the lecture of Muhammad al-Haajiree is translated and posted here.

The Questioner asks: We are in a village and there has swarmed upon us something which is called Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh. So should we accompany them or not? We hope for clarification.

So the Shaykh said: Do not accompany them, you should only accompany the Book of Allaah and Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam).[1]

The Shaykh was asked about Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, so he responded: Likewise it has reached me regarding the leaders of that Jamaa?ah in the Islaamic countries outside of our land that they are upon deviance in ?aqeedah. So if that is true[1], then indeed, what is obligatory is warning from them and limiting their da?wah within our land in the legislated fashion.

Source: ?Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh? p. 435 by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] And it is most definitely true, as has been stated by Shaykh Bin Baaz (and many, many others) and as will be explored later on when statements of kufr and shirk from Muhammad Illiyaas and Yoosuf al-Kandahlawee are posted here, in shaa? Allaah.

NEW! ? Shaykh Hammood at-Tuwayjiree (d. 1413) Warns From the Tableegh and Affirms the Madhhab of the Salaf in Dealing with the Innovators

The Noble Shaykh said: As for the statement of the questioner, do I advise him to perform khurooj with the Tableegh within the land ? meaning the land of Saudi Arabia ? or outside of it, or not?

So its response is that I say: I advise the questioner and I advise everyone besides him from those who desire safety for their religion from the impurity of shirk, ghuloo[1], bida?, and khuraafaat (heretical superstitions), that they do not join the Tableegh, and that they do not perform khurooj with them ever. And this [ruling] is the same whether it be within the Saudi land or outside of it.

Because the least evil of that which can be said about the Tableegh is that they are people of innovation, misguidance, and ignorance with regards to their ?aqeedah and sulook (i.e. way and characteristics). And whosoever possesses this censured attribute, then no doubt, the safety is in disassociating from them and keeping away from them?

?And indeed, the Salaf us-Saalih used to warn from the people of innovations and go to great lengths in their warning from them. And they used to forbid sitting with them, befriending them, and listening to their speech. And they used to command disassociation from them, and hostility towards them, and hatred of them, and desertion/boycotting (hajr) of them.[2]

Source: ?al-Qawl ul-Baleegh? pp. 30-33 by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] Ghuloo is showing extremism towards people (or places and even ideologies). It, as was explained by the A?imah, is the initial cause for the emergence of shirk amongst the Children of Aadam.
[2] And all of this is much to the chagrin of the Mumayyi?oon. The madhhab of the Salaf is crystal clear regarding dealing with the innovators ? the one who denies this is either (a) ignorant, or (b) diseased and desires to blast open the floodgates between Ahl us-Sunnah and deviant, heretical sects like Tableegh and Ikhwaan.

NEW! ? Shaykh ?Abdul-?Azeez ar-Raajihee, From the Scholars of Riyaadh, Explains and Warns Against the Innovated, Soofee Da?wah of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh

Questioner: The questions regarding Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh have increased?

Shaykh ar-Raajihee: We say: It is known that Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh are Soofiyyah, and we do not advise performing khurooj with them, because they do not call to tawheed, do not enjoin the good, and do not forbid the evil. And they enjoin the khurooj, [saying] ?Perform khurooj, perform khurooj.? And they make it obligatory on the people to perform khurooj for 40 per year, 40 days, and likewise 2 days per week twice[1], and in every month, 3 days. And all of this has no proof. [They say] ?Perform khurooj, perform khurooj,? they call it in the path of Allaah, yet they only care about adhkaar (remembrance of Allaah). And likewise they make some of the general folk give advice and perform da?wah, yet they have no knowledge, they have no knowledge.

So we advise the youth with attending the knowledge-based lessons and seeking knowledge, and not performing khurooj. And if a person wishes to call, then after that, if he is qualified,  then he can call to Allaah. As for him performing khurooj while he is an ignoramus with no understanding, [then this is not permissible]. Some of the senior Shaykhs that they make speak ? senior Shaykhs that don?t know a single thing, he doesn?t read, and perhaps he doesn?t know and doesn?t write ? they make him speak in the masjid, he gives advice. And some of them are a group small youths who haven?t studied and haven?t learned.

And it is like this - Jamaa?at ut-Taleegh, if you were to enjoin tawheed [in their presence], then there is no way would that they would leave you alone. He will say, ?Don?t call to tawheed, and don?t enjoin [the good], and don?t forbid the evil, call to such-and-such, and nobody should speak about this.? The intention [in da?wah] is to advise the students with embarking on seeking knowledge, and learning, and gaining understanding, and gaining insight. Then, after that, [he can perform] da?wah to Allaah.


[1] They perform a ?local khurooj? twice per week on two different days. These are usually done on Wednesday and Saturday after the ?Asr or Maghrib salaah.

NEW! - Shaykh Saalih Bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan on How and Why the Tableegh Reject the Da?wah to Tawheed (with Sound)

Questioner: Noble Shaykh, the reality is not that they (i.e. Jamaa'at ut-Tableegh)? they reject the da?wah to tawheed. And thus, if some students of knowledge go out with them and wish to, for example, speak and clarify ?aqeedah, and tawheed, and the types of shirk, they shun him and become angry with him. So what is your opinion about this? Nay, even if he was to clarify some of the confirmed sunan from the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) in some of the affairs, they reject this.

Shaykh al-Fawzaan: I have witnessed this myself. I conducted a lecture on tawheed in some of the masaajid in Riyaadh, and they (the Tableegh) were gathered in the masjid, so they went out of the masjid [upon hearing the lecture]. And others like me as well ? some of the Scholars gave a lecture in this masjid on tawheed, so they went out of the masjid. Because they were coming into it, so when they heard the da?wah to tawheed, they went out of the masjid, along with [the fact that] they were [originally] calling for a gathering in the masjid. Yet, when they heard tawheed, they went out of the masjid.

As for them not accepting the da?wah to tawheed ? yes ? and that is not specific to them. Everyone who traverses upon a mapped out manhaj does not accept abandonment of it.

If they had fallen into this matter (i.e. their misguidance) due to ignorance, then they might possibly return to the right way. But they fell into this matter by a design, by a manhaj upon which they have traversed for a long time, which has been mapped out for them. So there is no way that they would retract from their manhaj, because if they retracted from their manhaj, then their Jamaa?ah would unravel, their Jamaa?ah would unravel, and they do not desire this.[1]

And the most recent book which has been written and has gathered in it their statements, and the criticisms against them, and those who used to befriend them then exited them and left them, the most recent book regarding this is the complete and comprehensive book, the book of Shaykh Hammood Bin ?Abdullaah at-Tuwayjiree[2], may Allaah have mercy on him. For indeed, it is a book which has not left out anything with regards to this topic. This is because it is a recent book in which everything which has been said from before has been compiled, and authentic information regarding them has been compiled.

So there has never remained any confusion [about the Tableegh]. Yet the fitnah, and the refuge is with Allaah, if it emerges, it blinds the visions. The fitnah blinds the visions.

And if not, then how can a human being who has lived upon tawheed, and studied tawheed, and came to know the ?aqeedah of tawheed, how could he be deceived by those?!? How could he perform khurooj with them? How could call to them? How could he defend them? Is this not from misguidance after guidance, and replacing that which is superior with that which is inferior? We ask Allaah for good health and security.

Questioner: What is your advice to your brothers from the general folk, those who do not know their (i.e. the Tableegh?s) objectives ? even the women now perform khurooj to Pakistan?

Shaykh al-Fawzaan: My advice to my brothers from the general folk and other than the general folk is that they do not befriend them. And if they desire good, then it is present, praise to Allaah, in their land. If they desire knowledge, then the Scholars are present. If they desire worship, then the masaajid and houses are open for worship. If they desire anything from the affairs of the Religion, then it is available, and the praise is to Allaah.

There original audio is available here (played as you enter the website) and a transcript is available [url=]here[/url]. The transcript has been published in the book ?Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh? pp. 445-446.

[1] Read and reflect over the previous two paragraphs, for there is much wisdom to be found in them. The Shaykh has basically stated what the Salafiyyoon have been saying for quite some time already ? that nobody adopts a manhaj other than the Salafee manhaj except that it is due to him having some mapped-out manhaj designed for specific objectives. This also explains why people like Salmaan al-?Awdah do not repent and retract from their errors even after being refuted and humiliated by the ?Ulamaa? ? they have specific objectives which they desire to achieve, and if they were to retract, their innovated methodologies (and thus desired objectives) would unravel.
[2] He is referring to the book entitled "al-Qawl ul-Baleegh fit-Tahdheer min Jamaa'at it-Tableegh." In shaa' Allaah, more excepts from this great book will be added to this thread eventually, including some stories of those who used to go with the Tableegh and later abandoned them after having discovered their reality.

NEW! - The Imaam and Muhaddith, Shaykh ?Abdul-Muhsin al-?Abbaad al-Badar on the Innovated Tableeghee Manhaj and the Innovator Who Founded Them

The Shaykh said: As for Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, then first of all, they have abominable affairs and it is an innovated manhaj. And it emerged from Delhi, it did not emerge from Makkah and nor Madeenah, rather, its origin and source is Delhi in India.

And India, as is well-known, is full of khuraafaat (heretical superstitions) and full of bida?, even if there may be many from Ahl us-Sunnah and those who are upon the Sunnah and the correct way, like Jamaa?at Ahl ul-Hadeeth, who are amongst the best of people in that land?

?And their founder[1] (i.e. of the Tableegh) is from the people of innovation and from the people of the Soofee orders and from the deviants in ?aqeedah, so it (the Tableegh) is an innovation and heresy.

In those lands, it (Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh) is found to be relying upon these affairs which have been placed down by their founder for this order.[2] And in their ?aqeedah they are deviants, and in their order as well they have amongst them the Soofiyyah, and amongst them are the Ashaa?irah ? those who are are not upon the manhaj of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah, neither in ?aqeedah, nor in sulook (i.e. way and characteristics).

Source: ?Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh? pp. 448-449 by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] He is Muhammad Illiyaas al-Kandahlawee, whose bida', shirkiyyaat, and khuraafaat will be discussed later, in shaa' Allaah.
[2] Meaning that the innovations laid down by Illiyaas are the source of "guidance" upon which they firmly place their reliance, and the refuge is with Allaah.

NEW! ? Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin al-?Abbaad on the Newly-Arisen, Innovated Sects Like Tableegh and Ikhwaan and Their Having Tremendous Errors

Questioner: O Honorable Shaykh, there are newly-arisen groups like the Ikhwaan and the Tableegh and other than them. So are these groups from Ahl us-Sunnah and what is you advice regarding this topic?

Shaykh ?Abdul-Muhsin: These various, newly-arisen sects, first of all, are heresies whose birth was in the fourteenth century. And before the fourteenth century, they were not in existence and nor were they born ? they were in the world of the dead.

As for the upright manhaj and the straight path, then its birth and origin is the sending of the Noble Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) ? whatever the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his companions were upon when he was sent (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). So whosoever emulates this truth and guidance, then he is the one who has attained safety and has been saved. And whosoever diverges from this, then he is a deviant.

These sects or these groups, it is known that they have correctness and they have errors. But their errors are large and tremendous, so they are to be warned from. And [one should] be persistent in following the Jamaa?ah which is Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah, and they are those upon the manhaj of the Salaf of this Ummah, and those whose reliance is upon what came from Allaah and from His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). And their reliance is not upon what came from so-and-so and so-and-so, nor is it upon the orders and manaahij which were innovated in the fourteenth century upon this manhaj and upon this well-known way.

Please be patient, as there is in shaa' Allaah much, much more to come. I am still awaiting a short biography or tazkiyah for Muhammad al-Haajiree before I start adding material from his lecture on the Tableegh. Also, I plan to add the stories of those who once went with the Tableegh and later left them after having known their realities. So please bear with me as I prepare new material for this thread.

NEW! ? Muftee ul-Janoob Ahmad Bin Yahyaa an-Najmee Refutes Abu Bakr al-Jazaa?iree and His Shameless Defense of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh

Abu Bakr al-Jazaa?iree stated in a letter to ?Alee Mubaarak: A news-carrier informed me that you don?t like Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, and that you censure them and forbid khurooj with them. To this, I write the following statement:

Indeed, Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh - by Allaah - you will not find a jamaa?ah in the Islaamic world better than them in terms of spreading the Islaamic da?wah and rectification of individuals. Thus, I call you to retract from your opinions which have regretfully come from some students of knowledge, and that you encourage the brothers to perform khurooj with this jamaa?ah, for there is not to be found the likes of it this day in the Islaamic world. I say: This is upon knowledge and insight, Allaah knows this, and salaam.

So Shaykh an-Najmee responded: Verily, one of the Salafee brothers showed me a fatwa originating from ash-Shaykh Abu Bakr al-Jazaa?iree, in which he says: ?Indeed, Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh - by Allaah - you will not find a jamaa?ah in the Islaamic world better than them in terms of spreading the Islaamic da?wah and rectification of individuals.? Like this, Abu Bakr swears with this filthy oath - that you will not find a jamaa?ah in the Islaamic world better than Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh.

And I say: With regret, O Abaa Bakr, I did not think that it would come from you a betrayal to this extent! That you prefer Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, the Soofiyyah, the Qubooriyyah (grave-worshippers), the Khuraafiyyah (having heretical beliefs and superstitions), the Deeoobandiyyah, al-Muskrikah (having aspects of shirk), over the ?aqeedah of tawheed, the Salafee ?aqeedah! Do you not know that the grave of the founder of this jamaa?ah is inside of [their primary] masjid? Do you not know that he used to sit at the Soofee graves, asking from them blessings and favors? Do you not know that Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh is built upon four Soofee orders? Do you not know that they show enmity towards the People of Tawheed, or have you not heard your Lord say to His Prophet:

 Az-Zumar (39):65

And indeed it has been revealed to you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)), as it was to those (Allh's Messengers) before you: "If you join others in worship with Allh, (then) surely (all) your deeds will be in vain, and you will certainly be among the losers."

Do you not hear your Lord the Most High saying to His Prophet:

 Ash-Shu'ara (26):213

So invoke not with Allh another ilh (god) lest you be among those who receive punishment.

Do you not fear Allaah O Jaabir (i.e. Abu Bakr al-Jazaa?iree) ? you allege this allegation and you swear by it, waging war upon the ?aqeedah in the Land of Tawheed, the Nation of Tawheed, and the place of hijrah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), the Messenger of Tawheed? And you allege that you have explained the Book of Allaah? Why didn?t you take a lesson from that which is contained in the Book of Allaah in terms of driving away shirk and calling to tawheed? So is there repentance, O Jaabir? And I fear that you will meet Allaah while persistent upon this fatwa, such that your position in front of Allaah will be a difficult position. So repent to Allaah before the door closes and the repentance is not accepted from you, for indeed, if you become arrogant and refuse, then I do not think except that you have been lost. And with Allaah is the success.

NEW! ? The Permanent Committee on the Innovations of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and the Impermissibility of Joining Them

Question: I have read many fataawaa from Your Excellency[1], and you have encouraged the student of knowledge to perform khurooj with Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh. And praise to Allaah, we went on khurooj with them and benefited greatly. However, O my Honorable Shaykh, I saw some actions [with them] which are neither found in the Book of Allaah nor in the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), for example:
  1. Making a circle in the masjid in which every two or more persons review the final ten sawar from the Qur?aan, and the preserving of this action in this way every single time we go khurooj with them.
  2. Performing I?tikaaf on Thursday in a continuous way (i.e. singling out this specific day for I?tikaaf)
  3. Prescribing a fixed number of days for khurooj, and they are three days per year, forty days every month, and four months per lifetime.
  4. The collective, consistent du?aa after each bayaan.[2]
So how, O my Noble Shaykh, if I go out with this jamaa?ah should I deal with these action and doings which are not found in the Book of Allaah or the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), knowing, O my Noble Shaykh, that it is difficult to change this manhaj, and that this is their [distinct] way? So we seek from you clarification.

Response: What you have mentioned from the actions of this jamaa?ah are all innovations, so joining them is impermissible until they hold fast to the manhaj of the Book and Sunnah and abandon the innovations.[3]

Member: Bakr Bin 'Abdullaah Abu Zayd

Member: Saalih Bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan

Source: Fatwa no. 17776 dated 18/3/1416 by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] The questioner is presumably addressing the head of the committee, Shaykh ?Abdul-?Azeez Bin Baaz. Nevertheless, the fatwa is ascribed to all of the listed committee members.
[2] ?Bayaan? is what the Tableegh call their lectures. They are usually improvisational, i.e. the speaker speaks from his desires for almost an hour, inventing things as he goes along, and rarely mentions even a single aayah from Allaah?s book or authentic hadeeth of the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). Rather, they are designed to attract more people to go khurooj with them. Thus, you will hear many weak and fabricated ahaadeeth, ?miraculous? stories about their jamaa?ah, narrations of their satanic dreams, and other khuraafaat meant solely to dupe people into going with them. And the refuge is with Allaah ?Azz wa Jal.
[3] Thus, the mere presence of these innovations - and this without even mentioning their many aspects of shirk and grave-worship - is enough to warrant dissociation from this jamaa'ah.

NEW! ? Imaam ?Abdul-?Azeez Bin 'Abdullaah Bin Baaz (d. 1420): The Tableegh Are Amongst the 72 Sects Doomed For the Fire of Hell (with Sound)

Questioner: May Allaah be good to you: The hadeeth of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) regarding the splitting of the Ummah, his statement: ?My Ummah will split into 73 sects, all of them are in Hell except for one?? So, is Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, due to what they possess from shirkiyyaat (aspects of shirk) and bida? (innovations), and Jamaa?at ul-Ikhwaan ul-Muslimeen, due to what they possess from partisanship and revolting against those in authority and not hearing and obeying [them], do these two sects enter into the destroyed sects?

Shaykh Bin Baaz They enter into the 72. Whosoever opposes the ?aqeedah of Ahl us-Sunnah enters into the 72 sects. And what is meant by his (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) statement ?My Ummah...? is Ummat ul-Ijaabah (response), meaning they responded to him and openly showed their adherence to him. [So there are] 73 sects: the saved, secure sect which followed him and remained steadfast upon his religion, and the 72 sects, amongst whom are the disbelievers[1], and amongst them are the sinners, and amongst them are the innovators of various types.

Questioner: Meaning that these two sects are included in the 72?

Shaykh Bin Baaz Yes, they are included amongst the 72, as well as the Murji?ah[2] and other then them ? the Murji?ah and Khawaarij. Some of the People of Knowledge consider the Khawaarij to be amongst the disbelievers[3], outside [of Islam] but entering into the generality of the 72.

Source: Read the transcript and download the audio at the following link:

[1] In other words, all amongst the 72 will enter Hell - those who died upon pure tawheed will eventually be taken out of the Fire, whereas those whose deviation reached the level of major kufr, such as the grave-worshippers, those who claim knowledge of the unseen, those who claim that Allaah reveals shar?ee knowledge to them, and others, will reside in the Fire eternally. And such deviation is found in abundance with the Tableegh, and the refuge is with Allaah. May Allaah keep us away from the Fire and all that leads to it.
[2] They are those who remove actions from eemaan, i.e. a servant's actions do not effect his eemaan. And the Murji?ah have three main levels: (1) Those who say that he who merely affirms the existence of the Creator has completed eemaan. And this is the saying of the khabeeth, the zindeeq, the mulhid, Jahm Bin Safwaan at-Tirmidhee (d. 128) and his followers, the Jahmiyyah. (2) Those who say that he who affirms the religion of Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) with his heart has completed eemaan. And this is the saying of the Ashaa?irah and Maatureediyyah. (3) Those who say that that he who affirms Islaam with his heart and tongue has completed eemaan, and this is the saying of the Ahnaaf (followers of the Hanafee madh-hab). In general the Tableegh are level 2 Murji?ah, although many have level 1 irjaa?, and the refuge is with Allaah.
[3] This opinion has been attributed to Imaam Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah Ahmad Bin Hanbal ash-Shaybaanee and others from the Hanaabilah.

NEW! ? The Latest Warning Against Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh by Muftee il-Junoob Ahmad Bin Yahyaa an-Najmee (with Sound)

Questioner: A questioner from Jordan says: ?I used to go with Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and slander the Scholars of the Sunnah, then Allaah guided me to the manhaj of truth, so I then became in a struggle with this jamaa?ah which sometimes reached the police. Please advice me, and how should I atone for my slander of the Scholars of Sunnah?"

Shaykh an-Najmee: Atone for what occurred from you by speaking well of the Scholars of the Sunnah and by saying about the people of tableegh what is worthy of being said about them. And they are a Soofee, Deobandee jamaa?ah ? their founder used to sit at the graves, seeking blessings from the people in the graves... [he is] Muhammad Illiyaas. The important thing is that the issue regarding it (Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh) is clear. And this jamaa?ah is a jamaa?ah far-removed from good and from the truth, even if they do desire worship. Nevertheless, how many from the people of groups and parties are from those who desired worship while upon other than the truth and Allaah?s guidance? The groups and parties which spread from a Soofee origin and who have amongst them acts of major shirk continue [upon their way] and consider it to be the truth... (can't understand these final few words)? Yes.

NEW! ? Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee: Observations on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and Their Innovated, Shirk-Ridden Foundations, Origins, and Practices - Part I

The Shaykh said: We will look at the observations [regarding the Tableegh] with brevity because the speech regarding them has preceded. As for what has not been mentioned from the observations, meaning that which is new, then I will mention it with clarification:

The first observation: The founder of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh was nurtured upon Soofiyyah and made two oaths (bay?ah) to it[1] and lived upon this until he died. So due to this, he is a Soofee deeply-rooted in Soofiyyah.

The second observation: He used to be stationed at the graves waiting for spiritual revelations and blessings from their occupants.

The third observation: He used to be stationed as the Jishtee supervisor at the grave of ?Abdul-Quddoos al-Kankoohee, who believed in the ideology of the wahdat ul-wujood.[2]

The fourth observation: The Jishtee supervision is to sit at the grave for half an hour of every week while covering the head and making dhikr with this phrase: ?Allaah is in my presence, Allaah is looking over me.? And this action, if is done for Allaah, then it is an innovation, and if it is done out of submissiveness towards the occupant of the grave, then is it major shirk with Allaah. And the latter is more apparent, because if this submissiveness was for Allaah, then he would have done it at the masjid and would not have sat at the grave. So when he sat at the grave with this submissiveness, then this became a proof that he intended by this submissiveness the occupant of the grave.

The fifth observation: The founder of this jamaa?ah and his followers are Soofiyyah in their sulook (way, characteristics) and act upon four orders: the Jishtiyyah, the Naqshabandiyyah, the Sahrawardiyyah, and the Qaadiriyyah.

The sixth observation: That the sitting of the founder of this jamaa?ah by a grave of one who believes in wahdat ul-wujood proves that he believes in this [as well]. And if he did not believe in this, he would not have sat at the grave of one who believes in it in this way, and likewise [show] the submissiveness [towards him]. May Allaah keep us pure from what they have been tested with (i.e. bid?a and shirk).

The seventh observation: That the founder of this jamaa?ah is a Soofee, Qubooree (grave-worshipper), Khuraafee (one who believes in heretical superstitions).

The eighth observation: That their masjid from which their da?wah sprang forth has four graves inside of it. And the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: ?From the most evil of the creation are those who take the graves as masaajid. So do not take the graves as masaajid, for indeed, I forbid you from that.? And this hadeeth is in the Saheehayn [of al-Bukhaaree and Muslim].

Source: al-Mawrid al-?Adhb al-Zalaal (p. 284) by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] It has been said that he made oaths to the four major Soofee orders twice. The Shaykh is referring to these two cumulative oaths.
[2] Wahdat ul-wujood is the ideology that states that everything both seen and unseen is Allaah, i.e. the creation and the Creator are actually one and the same. And this is the greatest of kufr, there is no ideology in existence more evil than this and there is no disbeliever more disbelieving than he who ascribes to this ideology. Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan explained in his sharh of Nooniyyah how this ideology verifies and combines all other types of kufr and idolatry into one single madh-hab. He mentioned how even Iblees himself distinguished between the Creator and His creations, as is clear from the Qur?aan, whereas the zanadiqah (heretics) who affirm this filthy madh-hab do not.

NEW! ? Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee: Observations on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and Their Innovated, Shirk-Ridden Foundations, Origins, and Practices - Part II

The ninth observation: That the founder of this jamaa?ah believed in al-kashf[1] as is apparent from his statement regarding the tafseer of the verse:

 Aali Imran (3):110

You [true believers in Islmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islm has forbidden), and you believe in Allh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fsiqn (disobedient to Allh - and rebellious against Allh's Command).

Indeed, he explained it using the Soofee kashf, and it is not permissible to explain the Qur?aan with the Soofee kashf.[2]

The tenth observation: That the Tableegh worship with innovated dhikr (remembrance) upon the Soofee way, and this to separate the statement of tawheed La Ilaaha ila-Allaah.[3]

The eleventh observation: That whosoever cuts off the negation (Laa Ilaaha) from the affirmation (ila-Allaah) intentionally by saying ?Laa Ilaaha? [by itself], then kufr has become necessary upon him due to this. And whoever says ?ila-Allaah? 500 times [by itself] then he has disbelieved 500 times as has been established by ash-Shaykh Hammood at-Tuwayjiree as quoted from the Scholars.

The twelfth observation: That the dhikr in this form, which is what the Soofiyyoon are upon, is an innovation and misguidance, and it is not permissible to worship with it. So whoever says ?La Ilaaha? 500 times then says ?ila-Allaah? 400 times, then indeed, he is a misguided innovator - rather, he is a kaafir because he distinguished the negation from the affirmation. And whosever does this intentionally has disbelieved even if he is ignorant ? he is not to be excused for his ignorance.

Source: al-Mawrid al-?Adhb al-Zalaal (p. 284) by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] Kashf literally means unveiling, uncovering, etc. Used in this context, it is the Soofee concept insinuating that one can receive divine inspiration that ?uncovers the true and hidden meanings? of Qur?aan or Sunnah. Imbedded into this heretical and evil allegation is an implied declaration of prophethood, for a person does not receive divine revelation (wahee) except that he is a prophet. And for one to claim prophethood is major kufr which ejects from the Religion.
[2] Muhammad Illiyaas az-zindeeq al-affaak al-atheem, having neither fear of Allaah nor knowledge of the principles of tafseer and Arabic language, explained the word ?ukhrijat? in this aayah to mean the innovated khurooj which the Tableegh perform to this day. So the defining characteristic of their sect is based upon the satanic whisperings of their founder and not upon any clear text. His son, Yoosuf al-Kandahlawee az-zindeeq, later compiled books full of fabricated and extremely weak ahaadeeth and aathaar in a desperate attempt to prove the validity of his father?s innovated khurooj. May Allaah sever them.
[3] That is, they say ?Laa Ilaaha?, wait an extensive period, then say ?ila-Allaah.? Even worse, they sometimes do not say Laa Ilaaha at all. These innovated adhkaar, as stated by Shaykh Hammood Bin ?Abdullaah at-Tuwayjiree, constitute major kufr and apostasy from Islaam due to what they contain from rejecting the Uloohiyyah of Allaah 'Azz wa Jal. So it becomes clear that these du'aat of fitnah and dalaal actually desire the destruction of tawheed - the very foundation of the da'wah of Prophets and Messengers.

NEW! ? Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee: Observations on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and Their Innovated, Shirk-Ridden Foundations, Origins, and Practices - Part III

The fourteenth observation: They make it permissible to carry amulets in which there are talismans and the names of unknown people ? perhaps they are the names of shayaateen (devils) ? and this is not permissible.

The fifteenth observation: They believe that the life of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and the lives of the Awliyaa? (saints/pious persons) are worldly lives and not the lives of barzakh.[1]

The sixteenth observation: They are ignorant of Tawheed ul-Uloohiyyah and do not give it any value or any importance in their considerations. This is due to that whose clarification has preceded in the previous observations [of this treatise].

The seventeenth observation: And in Tawheed ul-Asmaa? was-Sifaat, they are Ashaa?irah, Maatureediyyah, even if they do read the hadeeth for blessings.[2]

The eighteenth observation: That their phrases are centered around Tawheed ur-Ruboobiyyah, and [affirming] this tawheed does enter one into Islaam, just as it did not enter the Arab Mushrikeen into it.[3]

The nineteenth observation: That they hate the callers to tawheed, whom they call ?Wahhaabiyyah?[4], such Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Qayyim, and Ibn ?Abdil-Wahhaab. And this indicates their deviance and wickedness.

The twentieth observation: That they do not proclaim the obligation of disbelieving in at-Taaghoot[5] and they do not like it that one should speak about disbelieving in at-Taaghoot. And they hate with a severe hatred that one should speak about this, rather, they will expel him from amongst them.

The twenty-first observation: That they do not forbid the evil and they do not permit a person to forbid any evil. Rather, they consider the stipulations regarding some evils to conflict with wisdom, as they allege. And indeed, Allaah Subhanahu wa Ta?aala censured the Children of Israa?eel and cursed them due to their lack of forbidding the evil. So he said:

 Al-Ma'idah (5):78

Those among the Children of Israel who disbelieved were cursed by the tongue of Dawd (David) and 'Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary). That was because they disobeyed (Allh and the Messengers) and were ever transgressing beyond bounds.

Do you see them as being more knowledgeable or Allaah?

Source: al-Mawrid al-?Adhb al-Zalaal (p. 284) by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] It is the life of the grave which occurs between one?s worldly death and the Day of Resurrection. When a person dies in this life, he passes on to the life of barzakh. The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and those who have died from the Awliyaa' are currently living this life of barzakh and not the worldly life.
[2] In their endless quest to devalue knowledge and its importance, the Tableegh adamantly state that they do not read ayaat or ahaadeeth to gain knowledge or understanding, rather, they do so for ?barakah? (blessings only). That is why they only read the last ten suwar from the Qur?aan as has preceded in the fatwa of the Lajnah ? they are not interested in learning the meanings of the Qur'aan nor acting upon it, but rather, they seek blessings by reading only these specific suwar and nothing else. And as the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: ?Whomsoever Allaah desires good for, He gives him understanding of the Religion.? Thus, their having no understanding nor care for understanding indicates that Allaah does not desire good for them. So they achieved neither understanding nor barakah, but rather, humiliation and disgrace for their playing with Allaah?s Deen.
[3] Refer to the first principle of al-Qawaa?id al-Arba? by al-Mujaddid al-Muslih Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab and it various explanations for further insight on this important issue.
[4] This is a derogatory ascription to Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab (d. 1206). In order to justify such an ascription, one must show that the Shaykh brought something new from himself. The Shaykh did not do this, rather, he revived the Religion of Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and removed the doubts of the Mushrikeen by way of textual proofs from the Book of Allaah, the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), and the statements of the Salaf, as is evident in his works ? most notably Kitaab ut-Tawheed. So the callers of shirk and misguidance tried desperately to defame this Imaam and failed miserably, with the summit of their efforts being the pathetic book ?ad-Durar as-Sunniyyah fir-Radd ?Ala al-Wahhaabiyyah? ? a book filled with such horrendous lies and fabrications that, rather than harming the Shaykh, it only exposed the humiliating status of its author and his likes. Shaykh Saalih Aal ash-Shaykh has delivered more than one excellent lecture clarifying Shaykh ul-Islaam and his da?wah and refuting his critics, so refer to them. It is also sufficient to know that many 'Ulamaa' outside of Najd from his time and after his time praised him, like as-San'aanee, a contemporary of his, Jamaal ud-Deen al-Qaasimee, and many others. As for the head callers of shirk and bida', like the Muhammad Illiyaas, then the 'Ulamaa' have not only not praised them, but have extensively exposed and refuted them, as this thread proves.
[5] A Taaghoot is anything worshipped alongside/instead of Allaah 'Azz wa Jal, except if the object of worship was a pious Muwahhid, such as 'Eesa Bin Maryam (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), al-'Uzayr (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam), al-Husayn, 'Abdul-Qaadir al-Jeelaanee, etc. In that case, the Taaghoot becomes Satan, who is responsible for deceiving the people and calling them to this shirk.

The twenty-second observation: The statement of the founder of this jamaa?ah: ?So the intention of Laa Ilaaha ila-Allaah is eliminating the false certainty regarding various things from the heart and inserting the correct certainty regarding the Self (dhaat) of Allaah.? The understanding of this is the belief in wahdat ul-wujood, and it is that the false certainty according to them is that which every Muslim believes ? that everything we see, hear, touch, and notice is created except for the Speech of Allaah (the Qur?aan), for it is an attribute from the attributes which is uncreated, and that Allaah is the Creator of this entire existence, the Owner of it, and the Ruler of it, and He with His Self has ascended His throne, distinct from His creations, and that His Knowledge is in every place. So this ?aqeedah is false according to the people of wahdat ul-wujood, and its beliefs are false beliefs and are corrupt according to them. And the correct certainty regarding the Self of Allaah [according to them] is that He has not ascended the throne, and that the Lord is everything that we see from the creations, as I have previously clarified and as their speech, declarations, and [the statements] which have come from them have proven.

And on top of this, the meaning of Laa Ilaaha ila-Allaah [according to them] is that ?There is nothing in existence except Allaah.? And this is negating the existence of every existing thing except for Allaah the Exalted, and Allaah is Exalted above their statement with a great highness.

The twenty-third observation: Their beliefs regarding dreams, miracles, stories, and superstitions, and that so-and-so went on khurooj [with the Tableegh] from his family, closed the door on them, and stayed with them (the Tableegh) for 4 months. Then he returned to them and found them in a better condition [than they were in before he went on khurooj], so he asked them and they told him that an old woman entered upon them and served them. And I have heard similar to this from some of them with my own ears, and they allege that this is a miracle which proves that their action is loved by Allaah ?Azz wa Jal.[1]

The twenty-fourth observation: That the founder of this jamaa?ah appointed himself a legislator [of religion], so he legislated for his followers these six pillars or six attributes. So he legislated for them khurooj 3 days, or 10 days, or 4 days, or 4 months, etc. And he prepared a legislation for his followers, and if his followers agree upon that which he drew out for them and do not neglect it, then they have made him a legislator for them, since they have traversed upon the line which he drew out for them, [which consists] of that which has preceded (i.e. the khurooj) and other than it, such as not proclaiming the disbelief in at-Taaghoot, not forbidding the evil, and other than this.

The twenty-fifth observation: What ash-Shaykh Hammood at-Tuwayjiree has mentioned, quoting from Professor Sayf ur-Rahmaan Bin Ahmad in his book, ?Nadhrah ?Ibaarah I?tibaariyyah ?an al-Jamaa?at it-Tableeghiyyah,? that they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in many affairs. So he said:

And indeed, Sayf ur-Rahmaan mentioned many types of similarities between the Tableegh and the Shee?ah in his book. And whosoever resembles a people is amongst them. And this is a summary of what he mentioned, so he said: ?And from that which is noticed [about the Tableegh] is that they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in covering-up poison with grease, and they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in covering-up that which is in their books.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in covering-up many of their far-removed beliefs (i.e. far-removed from the sunnah) in terms of ghuloo, dalaal, and the extremism which is far-removed [from the sunnah].

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in terms of [using] deception in the name of wisdom and carefulness, such that they make something apparent and hide something else, divert the speech from its proper context, and say one thing and do something else.[2]

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in their false interpretations which are far-removed from the way of the Salaf us-Saalih.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in their being far-removed from the texts and from the knowledge of the texts.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in limiting their knowledge and the knowledge of their sect to their books which are well-known with them and nothing besides them from the books and nothing besides them from the Scholars of the Muslimeen.[3]

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in preventing their followers from research and seeking the truth from other than themselves.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in making the majority of the religion limited to the virtues and faults and placing great emphasis on the major sins.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in [improperly] appraising the fallacies and exaggerations.

And they have resemblance to the Shee?ah in [improperly] appraising nifaaq (hypocrisy), manifesting tawheed, and obscuring shirk ? rather ? the call to tawheed and spreading of shirk.? [End of Shaykh Hammood?s speech as well?]

Then he mentioned in the same page the manifestations of resemblance between them and the Qaadiyaaniyyeen as well, quoted from the book of Sayf ur-Rahmaan Ahmad, ?Nadhrah ?Ibaarah I?tibaariyyah ?an al-Jamaa?at it-Tableeghiyyah.? So whosoever desires further elaboration, then let him return to these two books or one of them, and Allaah is the Giver of Success to whomever he desires from His servants and He is the One Who Guides to the straight path.

Source: al-Mawrid al-?Adhb al-Zalaal (p. 284) by way of the following thread on sahab, and it is the final part of this four-part series:

[1] And this is just a small sample of what the Tableegh resort to in order to justify their innovations. There any many, many more similarly-absurd tales widespread amongst the Tableegh which are more ridiculous and outrageous than that mentioned above. It is also interesting to note how you may hear the exact same story from two different members of the Tableegh in two different places in the world, only that the settings and characters have conveniently changed to suit the specific audience!
[2] He is referring to their picking and choosing the good which they enjoin the evil which they forbid. As has been mentioned previously, they hide rulings on various issues and do not forbid the evil in the name of wisdom ? in reality, this is mere deception designed to enlist more members into their sect. And this type of deception is commonplace with the Shee?ah, rather, it is the foundation of their sect, as they are known to openly admit: ?Our religion is deception.?
[3] They almost exclusively use ?Fadaa?il ul-A?maal? and ?Hayaat us-Sahaabah?, both by Muhammad Yoosuf al-Kandahlawee, whose grave is now a wathan buried in the Tableegh's primary masjid. In the Arab world, however, they also use ?Riyaadh us-Saaliheen? in order to gain acceptance with what is generally a more astute audience.

NEW! ? Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan: The Tableegh are Enemies of the Salafee Da?wah and Part of the Most Severe Ideological Attack Against It

The Shaykh said: Indeed, the enemies of this da?wah have tried to demolish it by force and were not given success. And they tried to demolish it by creating suspicions, misguiding others, creating doubts, and describing it with repulsive descriptions, but this did not increase it in anything but radiance, clarity, and acceptance.

And from the latest of what we are living through now is the arrival of strange, dubious ideologies to our lands in the name of da?wah upon the hands of groups named with different names, such as Jamaa?at ul-Ikhwaan ul-Muslimeen, Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, and Jamaa?at this and that. And their goal is one, and it is to remove the da?wah of tawheed and take its place.

And the reality is that the intent of these groups does not differ from the intent of those who preceded them from the enemies of this blessed da?wah ? all of them desire the demolishment of it, but the difference is in the approach?

?And if not, then if these groups truly desire da?wah to Allaah, then why do they overlook their own lands from which they came to us, since they are in greater need of da?wah and rectification? They overlook them and invade the lands of tawheed, desiring to transform its correct reformatory way into a crooked way, and desiring the deception of its youth and the establishment of fitnah and enmity between them?

And these groups did indeed deceive some of the youths. So they were affected by their ideologies, and they rejected their societies, and they doubted their Jurists and Scholars, and they extinguished within them the zeal towards ?aqeedah, and they started speaking randomly with that which they did not know, and sounding off on whatever they heard.

Yet indeed, in these lands ? and praise is to Allaah ? are men who show zeal towards their religion, defend their ?aqeedah, strike down the plots of the enemies to their deaths, and are not affected by false enthusiasm.

And if the enthusiastic writers and speakers from our youth are warning from the ideological attack, then what ideological attack is more severe than this attack? So the obligation is to give importance to opposing it and to stand it its face.

NEW! ? The Religion is Advice: An Essay on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh by Shaykh Faalih Bin Naafi? al-Harbee ? English Translation - Part I

All Praise to Allaah the Lord of All the Worlds. O Allaah, grant Your salaah and salaam upon Your Servant and Messenger, Muhammad, and upon all of his family and companions and those who follow them with perfection until the Day of Judgement.

Allaah Ta?aala said:

 Al-Ma'idah (5):2

O you who believe! Violate not the sanctity of the Symbols of Allh, nor of the Sacred Month, nor of the animals brought for sacrifice, nor the garlanded people or animals, etc. [Marked by the garlands on their necks made from the outer part of the treestems (of Makkah) for their security], nor the people coming to the Sacred House (Makkah), seeking the bounty and good pleasure of their Lord. But when you finish the Ihrm (of Hajj or 'Umrah), you may hunt, and let not the hatred of some people in (once) stopping you from AlMasjidalHarm (at Makkah) lead you to transgression (and hostility on your part). Help you one another in AlBirr and AtTaqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allh. Verily, Allh is Severe in punishment.

And He Ta?aala said:

 Aali Imran (3):103

And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allh (i.e. this Qur'n), and be not divided among yourselves, and remember Allh's Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islmic Faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allh makes His Ayt (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.,) clear to you, that you may be guided.

And He Ta?aala said:

 Az-Zukhruf (43):44

And verily, this (the Qur'n) is indeed a Reminder for you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam)) and your people (Quraish people, or your followers), and you will be questioned (about it).

And the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said: ?The Religion is advice??[1]

And in the hadeeth of Jareer Bin ?Abdullaah al-Bajalee is that from the things to which he made an oath with the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) is ??advice to every Muslim,?[2] meaning to every Muslim who seeks the truth, who has zeal towards his religion, who advises himself, who is a defender standing up for the correct ?aqeedah, who traverses the sound way of the Salaf us-Saalih. as-Salaamu ?Alaykum wa Rahmatullah wa Barakaatuh, to proceed:

So indeed, these lands, which have been founded upon the tawheed of Allaah Ta?aala, are open in their ?aqeedah and envied for their security in which one can live in comfort. [This is] due to the grace of Allaah firstly then due to their ruling according to the Sharee?ah of Allaah in their ?aqeedah, worship, judgments, characteristics, mannerisms, and the rest of their affairs. And indeed, the enemies of the ?aqeedah have been persistent in their enmity [of these lands] due to that which they (the enemies) broadcast from calls of misguidance, deformed realities, and what is similar to that from what has been broadcasted by the trumpets of the Raafidah, Soofiyyah, and whoever travels in their direction from the deviants upon their different methodologies and various sects. So they are agreed upon the resistance of the ?aqeedah of tawheed and the enmity of its people wherever they encamp and wherever they are found.

And when they failed in these false calls, they resorted to a different, more severe technique ? and it is to attack this society under the veil of da?wah to Islaam and in the form of various partisan societies. Each party (hizb) adopted a specific methodology in their da?wah which did not agree ? neither from near nor afar ? with the methodology which the Prophets and Messengers traversed - and at their head, their last and most superior, our Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) - and nor with the methodology of the Salaf us-Saalih from the Sahaabah and Taabi?een and those who followed them with perfection in terms of concentrating on spreading the ?aqeedah of tawheed and giving importance to all of the principles of Islaam, from the fundamental matters to the subsidiary branches. Rather, these varying groups, methodologies, and ideologies are agreed upon not speaking about tawheed, alleging that it splits the Ummah, just as they do not place importance on seeking shar?ee knowledge, nor gaining understanding of it, nor spreading it. And what is important to them is implementing a specific hizbee (partisan) methodology upon which they show loyalty and disownment. And therefore, it becomes obligatory upon whoever has knowledge[3] to bring this forward so as to stop the evil of these groups or to reduce it. And there is no quittance except by this.

And from these groups is the jamaa?ah which has called itself Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, and it is a jamaa?ah which is Maatureedee, Ash?aree in its ?aqeedah and Soofee, Khuraafee (superstitious) in its characteristics, resistant to the true ?aqeedah of tawheed, ignorant and causing ignorance in their way and principles.

[1] Reported by Muslim, Abee Daawood, Ahmad, and others.
[2] Reported by al-Bukhaaree, Muslim, an-Nasaa?ee, at-Tirmidhee, Ahmad, and others.
[3] [Notice how the Shaykh says that it obligatory upon everyone with knowledge of these affairs to prevent their evil. The Ikhwaan, more specifically the Mumayyi?oon, created confusion in this arena by equating this with jarh of the narrators of hadeeth, thus limiting this type of criticism to the Scholars only, and stipulating that before criticizing any specific group or individual, one must consult with the Scholars, even if their affair is clearer than the sun on a cloudless day. And this is falsehood, for this type of criticism is not analogous to jarh of the narrators of hadeeth, rather, it merely al-amru bil-ma?roof wan-nahee ?an il-munkar (enjoining the good and forbidding the evil), and it is binding upon all those who have the knowledge and capability of doing so.]

And whoever is deceived by this jamaa?ah, then it is only because he saw what they have in terms effecting the commoners and sinners. And the reality is that this is a temporary effect, for they remove him from sins and enter him into shirk, bida?, and tasawwuf (Soofee practices) from directions which he may or may not perceive. And with this severe technique, they succeeded in leveraging many of the commoners and ignoramuses. And from the things that helped them in doing this is that they move them towards spiritual exercises and spend their time traveling the earth and performing the khurooj which they call jihaad. And they always repeat the weak hadeeth: ??we returned from the minor jihaad to the major jihaad.?[1] And they interpreted the texts about jihaad in the path of Allaah to take this meaning, and they aborted the true principle of jihaad under the veil of the sufficiency of performing jihaad against oneself in this age. And in this is a severe Soofee principle, which is to abort the foundation of Islaam in terms of the tawheed of Allaah Ta?aala, jihaad in the path of Allaah, knowledge, and educating.

And from their severe principles is their not meddling in speech regarding ?aqeedah, nor Islaamic politics, nor the points of difference, neither in the fundamentals nor the subsidiary branches, just as they impose these conditions upon their followers. And any individual or jamaa?ah which leaves this manhaj is openly shown hostility and alienated, especially those who call to tawheed. And this manhaj undoubtedly and unquestionably serves the enemies of Islaam.[2] Thus, they boast about  the fact that they have entered every land in the world, amongst them Russia and Israel. And this issue by itself calls for questioning and suspicion ? can anyone imagine that the enemies of Islaam would be pleased to strengthen these people in performing da?wah in their lands if indeed they were calling to the true Islaam?

Rather, the reality is that this da?wah serves them (the Kuffaar) in their objectives due to its aborting jihaad in the path of Allaah ? and this is what the enemies of Islaam long for. Added to this is the fact that this da?wah, which arose from the lands of India about 80 years ago and spread to various lands, if it was a true da?wah to Allaah, then where is its effect on the manifestation of shirk and idolatry which is spread throughout the lands of the Muslims and exemplified by the worship of graves and the acts of devotion near them, the sacrifices and vows made to them, the du?aa (invocation) of their inhabitants, and other than that ? especially in the lands from which this da?wah started and resides, such as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh?! All the while, this manifestation [of shirk] spreads within the view and hearing of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, who have reached millions yet have not changed this even one bit - rather, they do not reject this - rather, they actually partake in these rituals with others. And to them, all of mankind has committed shirk by loving the worldly life - except for the Tableegh.[3] So they alone are free from this shirk. And they derive this corrupt, bogus belief by way of their statement: ?Love of the worldly life is the head of every evil.?[4] And they allege that this a hadeeth yet it is not a hadeeth, rather, it is nothing but a fabrication and lie upon the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam). And we are not talking about individuals here, rather, we are interested in this narrow manhaj upon which they have traversed, and that it is a manhaj which is not in conformity with the manhaj of the Prophets of Messengers in da?wah to Allaah Ta?aala, and [we are also interested in] the extent of the effect of this manhaj upon individuals.

[1] al-Khateeb reported it in his history [of Baghdaad], as did ad-Daarimee and al-Bayhaqee in ?az-Zuhd.? The latter graded it weak, as did al-?Iraaqee, as-Suyootee, and other than them.
[2] [And  this is why, as mentioned by Shaykh Muqbil, they were allowed to enter the communist lands during the peak of communism and this is why the French would not permit him to come perform da?wah except under the name of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh. And even in these so-called times of ?maximum security?, we see that groups of Tableegh from the subcontinent and Arab world (many of whom have criminal records and dubious backgrounds) easily obtain visas and hold large conferences in the United States and Canada with no resistance.]
[3] And they say that the people in Saudi Arabia, even if they boast about not worshipping graves and rocks and calling upon other than Allaah, etc., have indeed regressed towards the worship of the worldly life and shirk with regards to the comfort of the worldly life. And indeed, a group of trustworthy Saudi individuals who made a pledge of allegiance to the head of Tableeghee da?wah in India have testified that he dictates to them during the pledge of allegiance: ?Say: I repent from shirk.? And the last of which they make them pledge allegiance to is loyalty only to the Tableeghee da?wah, loyalty to whoever shows loyalty to it, enmity towards whoever shows enmity to it, defending it, and spending life in its path. Then they pledge allegiance upon the four-part chain, which is the pledge of allegiance of In?aam ul-Hasan to Muhammad Illiyaas. And this four-part chain is a simultaneous pledge of allegiance to four Soofee orders: al-Jishtiyyah, an-Naqshabandiyyah, al-Qaadiriyyah, and as-Sahrawardiyyah. And what the Naqshabandiyyah possess from misguidance is sufficient without these other orders, so what if it is combined with them? [From those trustworthy Saudi individuals who reached the level of pledging allegiance to this jamaa?ah is ?Abbaas al-Sharqaawee, whose many writings and statements on the Tableegh will be posted later in this thread, in shaa? Allaah. The testimonies of those who went out with the Tableegh and later abandoned them have been purposely delayed because precedence has been given to the writings and statements of the Senior Scholars.]
[4] al-Bayhaqee reported it in ?ash-Shu?ab.? as-San?aanee judged it to be fabricated as did Shaykh ul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah and as-Suyootee.

NEW! ? The Religion is Advice: An Essay on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh by Shaykh Faalih Bin Naafi? al-Harbee ? English Translation ? Part III

And it is possible for us to clarify the condition of this manhaj in the following statements, and we will enumerate them with brevity:

1. The foundation of the Tableegh is Soofee: they pledge allegiance to the [four major Soofee] orders and do not see guidance except in them.

2. They take the pledge of allegiance (bay?ah) to the orders from all of their followers except for the Arabs and the people of the Haramayn (i.e. the two sacred places - Makkah and Madeenah).

3. The current head of the jamaa?ah, In?aam al-Hasan, acknowledged this bay?ah in a letter to Shaykh Sa?d al-Husayyin and claimed that it is a bay?ah of tawbah (repentance).

4. The testimony of Sa?d Bin ?Abdur-Rahmaan al-Husayyin regarding the head of the Tableegh in the Kingdom [of Saudi Arabia], Sa?eed Ahmad, that he confessed to taking the pledge of allegiance from some of the Saudis to them (the Tableegh).

5. The individuals who made bay?ah to In?aam al-Hasan, the head of the Tableegh who is present in Delhi, India at their headquarters, confess [to having made bay?ah to him]. And [their headquarters] has in it the grave of the founder of the jamaa?ah, Muhammad Illiyaas, his son and successor Muhammad Yoosuf, and the graves of other than them from their family. And they are in corner, within the walls of the masjid of the jamaa?ah, and they (the Tableegh) single them out with specific rituals.[1]

6. The Shaykhs of the Tableegh, upon conducting the bay?ah, warn their followers from the correct ?aqeedah and call them (i.e. those who follow the correct ?aqeedah) Wahhaabiyyah. And they point out their own corrupt ?aqeedah to them, and state that the differences between themselves and the Wahhaabiyyah are in ?aqeedah. And from the things they point out to them are the life of the Prophets, which they believe is a true, worldly life and not a life of barzakh, the permissibility of tawassul through the ?selves? of the Prophets and Righteous[2] and seeking aid (al-istighaathah) from them, etc.

[1] [According to the eyewitness account of Shaykh Rabee' posted earlier in this thread, these graves are worshipped clearly and openly. It is also clear from a seperate audio recording of Shaykh Faalih that he has witnessed these same acts of shirk during a visit to the Tableeghee headquarters as well - Allaah knows best whether or not he accompanied Shaykh Rabee' or conducted a seperate visit.]
[2] [Tawassul is the act of using someone or something as a means of nearness to Allaah. Some types of tawassul are permissible, such as tawassul through one?s righteous deeds or through the Names and Attributes of Allaah, whereas other types of tawassul, such as those referred to here, constitute major shirk which nullifies one?s Islaam. Refer to the second nullifier from ?Nawaaqid ul-Islaam? of Shaykh Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab or Shaykh ?Abdul-?Azeez Bin Baaz and their respective explanations for further clarity on this topic.]

7. The individual who desires his pledge of allegiance passes through an examination phase in front of the Shaykhs of the Tableegh which reaches the level of worship in obedience ? rather, committing what Allaah has made forbidden by order of the Shaykh or making forbidden what Allaah has made permissible[1], to the extent of fearing annihilation by way of calamities, tribulations, misguidance, deviance, and the most severe affairs for whoever opposes the Shaykh. And the ruling is the opposite for whoever blindly obeys the Shaykhs ? so he is the guided and successful one and the one safe from fitnah, etc.

8. They change the life of the follower from head to heel in every way ? in ?aqeedah, manhaj, sulook (way and characteristics), fikr (ideology), and other than that.

9. They established six attributes: they made memorization of them obligatory for followers and put them in place of the pillars of Eemaan and pillars of Islaam and its fundamentals. From these six attributes is the pure statement that La Ilaaha ila-Allaah, and its meaning according to them is: ??eliminating the false certainty regarding various things from the heart and inserting the correct certainty regarding the Self (dhaat) of Allaah.? And they explain it as being tawheed ur-ruboobiyyah, i.e. there is no beneficiary nor harmer except Allaah Ta?aala, etc.

And from them is honoring the Muslim[2]: and they explain this attribute as whoever bares witness that La Ilaaha ila-Allaah is a Muslim, regardless of what his actions are and even if he commits shirk and does everything that nullifies the shahaadah. And whosever is not like this, then he (according to them) is strict and cruel, rather, he is a khaarijee who makes takfeer of the Muslims. And likewise, they explain the remainder of the six attributes with explanations that demolish Islaam or apply them in such as way that conflicts with the reality of the tawheed. And indeed, we found amongst their followers in our lands those who memorize these six principles and apply them, so when we asked him about the pillars of Islaam and Eemaan, we found that he did not know them.[3]

[1] Muhammad Zakariyyaah, one of the majors leaders of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, wrote in ?Tableeghee Nisaab? (now called Fadaa?il ul-A?maal) on page 31: ?Favor your Shaykh over yourself by doing whatever he desires, for giving preference to yourself is not befitting. And be hasty in obedience to his orders and abstaining from whatever he forbids you from doing, even if he orders you to commit adultery (zinaa) ? do it as per his order, not your pleasure." [This, as Shaykh Faalih alluded to, is shirk ut-taa?ah, i.e. shirk in obedience, and it is amongst the major shirk which ejects from the religion and nullifies one?s Islaam. Shaykh ul-Islaam Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab said: ?The third [type of major shirk] is shirk ut-taa?ah, and the evidence is the statement of Allaah Ta?aala:

 At-Tawbah (9):31

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allh (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allh), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurt (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilh (God - Allh) L ilha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)."

And the tafseer of this regarding which there is no confusion is: obeying the scholars and worshippers in committing disobedience [to Allaah], as the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) explained to ?Adiyy Bin Haatim when he asked him and said: ?We do not worship them.? So he (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) mentioned to him that their worship is by obeying them in committing disobedience [to Allaah].? Taken from "al-Waajibaat al-Mutahatimaat" as compiled by Imaam ?Abdullaah al-Qar?aawee.]
[2] [As Muhammad al-Haajiree mentioned when discussing this issue, where is their honor for those Salafiyyoon and ?Ulamaa? who warned against their innovations and misguidance? Furthermore, where was their honor for Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan and Hammaad al-Ansaaree, when they disrespected these two A?imah by needlessly leaving their lectures? Or do they just honor those who are either sympathetic to them, ignorant of their reality, or silent about their hideous deviations due to hizbiyyah? The truth is, the Tableegh show no honor towards those most deserving of being honored, and they are Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah and their ?Ulamaa?. And their filthy, vulgar behavior towards Ahl us-Sunnah has become commonplace in our times ? there are first-hand accounts on sahab which mention how the Tableegh physically attacked some brothers, labeled others as Shayaateen (devils), and committed other abominable acts not befitting for a group which claims to honor the Muslims.]
[3] [And this is not an isolated case, rather, it is common that a Tableeghee would not know the five pillars of Islaam nor the six pillars of Eemaan, yet would simultaneously speak openly in the masaajid and make da?wah. Can the one who does not possess something give it to others?]

10. They send out whoever ascribes to the jamaa?ah, [stating] that he is pious caller, and that he is doing what the ?Ulamaa? [of Ahl us-Sunnah] are not doing, even if he is amongst the most ignorant of the ignoramuses. And there is found in their hearts a hatred towards the ?Ulamaa? and a love for the Shaykhs of the Tableegh, and they warn against listening to anyone but them. Nonetheless, it is befitting that we know that the terminology of the Tableegh in granting the name ?Shaykh? or ?Mashaayikh? differs from our terminology: so the well-experienced caller who went to India and Pakistan, conducted various travels (i.e. khurooj for the specified periods of time), practiced the entire manhaj in da?wah of the Tableegh and was loyal to it, and so on, then he is the Shaykh according to them, even if he is amongst the most ignorant of the ignoramuses. And the reference points are the Indian Shaykhs who are upon this manhaj.

11. Their hatred of the people of ?aqeedah and the Imaams of the Salafee da?wah, and their complete hatred of Shaykh Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab, may Allaah have mercy on him, and his followers who carried the da?wah. So they accuse them of ignorance and stupidity, and that they are Khawaarij, and that they make takfeer of the Muslims, as is written in Kitaab ush-Shihaab uth-Thaaqib by Husayn Ahmad, one of the major Imaams of the jamaa?ah (p. 42). So he said: ?Know that Muhammad Bin ?Abdil-Wahhaab made his affair apparent in the beginning 13th century, and that he had corrupt beliefs bogus opinions. As such, he killed and fought against Ahl us-Sunnah and forced them to speak ill of his ?aqeedah and opinions, and he used to make lawful the pillaging of their wealth, and he thought that, in killing them, there was reward and recompense ? especially the people of Hijaaz, for indeed, he harmed them in the most severe way. And he used to insult the Salaf us-Saalih and speak about their status in the most evil manner, and many of them were called to account by his hand. In conclusion, he is a tyrannical oppressor and sinning murderer, thus, the Arabs hated him more severely than the Jews and Christians??

And Anwar Shaah al-Kashmeeree, also one of their Imaams, said in Faydh ul-Baaree (1/170): ?As for Muhammad Bin Abdil-Wahhaab an-Najdee, then he was a stupid man with little knowledge, so he used to hurry to pass judgments of kufr. And it is not befitting [for anyone] to dive into this valley (i.e. takfeer), except for he who is precise and knowledgeable of kufr and its causes.?

As such, the Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh believe that the way of the Salaf in passing judgments of shirk upon the mushrikeen, innovation upon the innovators, and so on is harsh and severe, and that it is a fruitless way, and that it is not from the wisdom in da?wah. And the da?wah of the Tableegh prevents differentiation between the muwahhid (monotheist) and the mushrik (polytheist), innovator, and sinner. So the manhaj according to them is leaving the people upon what they believe, since the important issue according to them is carrying out the rituals and the specific principles upon which their da?wah is based.

13. Their allegation that tawheed and ahkaam are causes of dissension, and that teaching them and calling to them divides the Muslims and repels them from the da?wah, and that it is not from the wisdom in calling to Allaah. And this is nothing but scattering ashes into the eyes, such that their enmity towards the manhaj of the Salaf followed in our lands is not exposed.

14. They do not forbid the evil ? ever ? and they openly admit that. And they do not enjoin the good in the correct manner, and they believe that the forbiddance of evil repels the Muslims and divides them, and that it is not from the wisdom in calling to Allaah.

15. They teach their followers many corrupt things from their ?aqeedah, amongst which are: that at-tawakkul (trust in Allaah) is not completed except by abandoning al-asbaab (the means by which things come about) by claiming that they have no effect, and that performing al-asbaab damages the validity of at-tawakkul[1]. And with this they affected many people, such that they abandoned their governmental jobs and their business-related activities. And they affected the youth, such that they abandoned their knowledge-based studies with the claim of at-tawakkul, and that, for whoever goes out in this da?wah and practiced its manhaj, everything will suffice for him and his provision will come from places which he perceives not, even if he doesn?t do any work. And the affair does not stop at this level, rather, they have been able to affect the young children, such that they removed them from their schools and classrooms and away from their fathers, mothers, and families, and they performed khurooj with them upon their way.

And what results from this in terms of waste, misguidance, corruption, and what results from the khurooj of those youths in terms of corruptions and perils is known, [yet] only Allaah knows their extent.

16. They fill the minds of their followers with stories which are all lies. And all of the miracles which they claim and all of the khuraafaat (superstitions) which they spin up and attribute to Islaam are false and slanderous. And they support their claims with weak and fabricated ahaadeeth, and the goal of this is sticking to and associating with the da?wah and its Shaykhs and leaders as well as their distinguishing between everything with which they associate.[2]

17. In Asmaa? and Sifaat (the Names and Attributes of Allaah 'Azz wa Jal), they teach them the beliefs of the Maatureediyyah and Ashaa?irah, and they reject the fact that tawheed ul-?ibaadah (the tawheed of worship) is the meaning of Laa Ilaaha ila-Allaah.

[1] [And this is a heinous lie upon Allaah ?Azz wa Jal, for the belief in al-asbaab is from the ?aqeedah of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa?ah. Refer to this article. Aside from what is mentioned by Shaykh ul-Islaam and Ibn Sa?dee in the aforementioned article, Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan also refuted the falsehood of such innovators by mentioning how the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) used to prepare strategies, wear armor, and wield a scimitar when preparing for and fighting in various battles ? yet, despite his performing these asbaab, he was still the most trusting in Allaah of all mankind.]
[2] [That is, their intent in spreading these stories and superstitions is causing their followers and potential recruits to be even more attracted and participant in their activities. As such, some of their stories are meant to scare unsuspecting people into joining them, whereas others are meant to make the Tableegh appear ?miraculous? and ?blessed?, thus fooling the foolish into going khurooj with them. And these are all shameless tactics used by those who lack any textual evidence for their forged manaahij ? in fact, these tactics are common with Christian missionaries, who regularly resort to story-telling, narrations of false miracles, and other khuraafaat to gain converts.]

18. They closely surround them with authority figures and supervisors and instill fear in them, perhaps until they lose their mind or are on the verge of losing their mind.

19. They show bigotry to the Hanafee madh-hab with an abominable, blind sort of bigotry, such that they do not accept the texts and proofs from the Book and Sunnah if they differ with the madh-hab.

20. They believe in the misguidance and lack of eemaan of everyone who fails to enter the da?wah of the Tableegh, and that all of the Muslims are the object of their da?wah ? exactly like the Kuffaar.

21. Some of the people only notice their effect on the sinners, but the reality is that they have an effect on the upright people as well but in a greater way ? especially in our lands, for they removed them from the upright manhaj of the Salaf and assigned them to the fruitless manhaj of the Tableegh, which is founded upon innovation and misguidance.

22. Some of the people imagine that they are [only] slight ignoramuses and that they do not create evils for anyone. And the truth and reality is that they are callers who, in the foundations of their heretically-superstitious da?wah, deliberately hold tightly to these foundations without looking to the legislative proofs and knowledge. And what opposes them is discarded by the jamaa?ah [only] because it is in opposition to these fundamentals. And they have a severe principle, and it is that the end goal justifies the means[1]. So they believe in the permissibility of arriving to their goals even by committing acts which oppose the shar? (legislation), such as lying, forgery, and false promises. So they dislike that they should promise to change what they are upon and what is in their books in terms of tasawwuf, misguidance, lying, and other than that from that which does not agree with the Religion, and they do not keep their promises.

And whatever a person possesses from characteristics
Even if he imagines that they are hidden from the people, they are known

23. They say that the people, except for the Tableegh, are being put to trail: the rulers are put to trail by their leadership, the businessmen are put to trail by their business, the employees are put to trail by their jobs, and so on. And [they claim that] the Scholars have not benefited from their knowledge, have remained at ease, and have abandoned da?wah and khurooj, thus they are being put to trail. And they say to whoever follows them amongst the ignoramuses and their likes: ?As for you, then Allaah has protected you from the trials and has granted you eemaan, and with your little knowledge, you have sacrificed the worldly-life and have abandoned it and its people, and have performed khurooj in the path of Allaah. And thus, you all have an effect on the people because your speech, which comes from the heart, enters into the heart.?[2]

[1] [This ?principle of kufr? ? as named by Imaam al-Albaanee ? is attributed to the Italian Nicolo Machiavelli (d. 1527 C.E.) and it is the fundamental operating principle for many secret societies and heretical cults, such as the Freemasons, Illuminati, and their various derivatives. The misguided innovators of this Ummah also base their activities on this principle, with the prime example being the Ikhwaan and their seedlings, such as the Qutubiyyah and Surooriyyah, all of whom are structurally and operationally similar to the aforementioned secret societies. May Allaah sever them all.]
[2] [And the Tableegh claim that, while Ahl us-Sunnah might speak with knowledge in their da'wah, they speak with the ?heart?, and that this is why so many people embrace their da?wah. And the reality is, people embrace their da?wah because, like Shaykh Muqbil stated, it is a dead da?wah ? they do not call to tawheed, do not warn against shirk, and do not forbid the evil. Thus, it is expected that many people would embrace such a hollow call.]

Questioner: O Honorable Shaykh, may Allaah give you success. One of the leaders of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh mentioned that you did indeed praise Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh in one of your previous lectures in the city of Qurayyah[1]. So is this true?

Shaykh al-Fawzaan: He is a liar. He is a jovial liar. Yes. I do not praise them, and I do not like them. Yes.

NEW! ? The Religion is Advice: An Essay on Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh by Shaykh Faalih Bin Naafi? al-Harbee ? English Translation ? Part VIII

24. Since the establishment of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh in the Kingdom until today, previous opposition has risen against them from the ?Ulamaa?, Shaykhs, and students of knowledge, amongst whom are the Permanent Committee of Scientific Research, Legal Verdicts, Da?wah, and Counsel ? we will mention this shortly. And indeed, Shaykh Sa?d Bin ?Abdur-Rahmaan al-Husayyin pointed this out in his refutation of In?aam al-Hasan, the current head of the jamaa?ah. And two scientific research papers of criticism of the jamaa?ah were presented at the Islaamic University in al-Madeenah an-Nabawiyyah, and we will refer to them in what follows, in shaa? Allaah.

25. All or most of what we have mentioned in terms of the ideologies, methodologies, beliefs and other than that of those mutasawwifah (i.e. those who practice Soofiyyah) is known by the commoners, ignoramuses, and their likes from our lands who were affected by them. And they do not perceive their corruption, and they become enthusiastic in calling to them, believing the picture that they painted for them ? that they are callers to guidance, and that what they perform in terms of da?wah to Allaah, according to their allegations regarding them, is not performed by the Shaykhs, the people of the rotating chairs (i.e. holding important positions), and those who are Sultans ? that is what they say to them. And these [commoners] are not capable of performing da?wah except upon their way (the Tableeghee way), because they and those similar to them are ignoramuses. There have no criterion with them [to distinguish between truth and falsehood] and are not capable of anything except what they have learned from them and what they trained them to do. And they are currently fulfilling the role of the Tableeghee da?wah in these lands. And they have a secret, perfected, and precise order of operations upon which they trained them. And they have great propagation throughout various cities, nay, even villages and desert communities. And they have heads in every area from the areas of the Kingdom ? they move according to the orders of Sa?eed Ahmad, who is present in al-Madeenah an-Nabawiyyah, and according to guidelines from the general leader In?aam al-Hasan, who is present in India.

NEW! ? Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan Refutes a Common Tableeghee Doubt Regarding the Da?wah to Tawheed (with Sound)

Questioner: O Honorable Shaykh, may Allaah give you success, and this questioner states: One of the callers of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh says: ?We have caused the people to be lost in the name of tawheed and have encouraged them upon sinning. And this is due to the statement that the muwahhid will enter Paradise regardless of his sins other than shirk. Tawheed, tawheed, and tawheed. So how will we respond to Allaah regarding the existence of these sinners?? So the question is: What is your Excellency?s opinion of this statement?

Shaykh al-Fawzaan: This is the statement of an ignoramus or a misguided one. Either he is an ignoramus and does not know the speech regarding the issues of knowledge, or he knows yet is misguided and desires misguidance of the people.

So there is no doubt that shirk is the greatest of the sins, and that its committer will not enter Paradise ? period. And as for the committer of sins, even if they be major and not shirk, then forgiveness and entrance to Paradise will return to him. And this is something which is not from us (i.e. invented by us). Allaah Jal wa ?Alaa says:

 An-Nisa (4):48

Verily, Allh forgives not that partners should be set up with him in worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allh in worship, he has indeed invented a tremendous sin.

And in the hadeeth [the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said that Allaah will say]: ?Remove from the Fire whosoever has in his heart eemaan equivalent to the weight of a mustard seed.?[1] So tawheed guarantees for its possessor Paradise, either in the beginning or in the end, even if he is punished (in Hell). As for the mushrik, then there is no security for him ever. [Allaah says:]

 Al-An'am (6):82

It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allh and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their belief with Zulm (wrong i.e. by worshipping others besides Allh), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided.

So the people of tawheed have security, those who do not cover their eemaan (faith) with dhulm (oppression) ? meaning shirk[2] ? have security, either completely, or in the end. As for the mushrik, then he has no security ? period ? and he is eternally in the Fire.

So this one who says that tawheed caused the people to be lost, then this, and the refuge is with Allaah, is atrocious speech. This is atrocious speech, false speech. Tawheed is what rectified the people, and it is what will save the people on the Day of Resurrection from the Fire. So it is the basis, and it is the foundation. And there is no comparison between the [ordinary] sin and shirk ? shirk is the greatest of sins, and there is no salvation alongside of it. As for the sins, then they are under the will [of Allaah] ? if Allaah wills, he can punish their committer, and if He wills, He can forgive him. And if he is punished, then his final outcome will [eventually] be Paradise. Yes.

[1] Narrated by Abee Sa?eed and reported by al-Bukhaaree and others.
[2] The Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) himself explained that the oppression referred to in this verse is shirk.

NEW! ? 72 Years of Shirk and Dalaal: Shaykh Muhammad Taqee ud-Deen al-Hilaalee (d. 1408) Recounts His Experience With Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh

In his book ?ad-Da?wah ila-Allaah fee Aqtaar Mukhtalifah,? the Shaykh recounts his time in Afghanistan in the year 1352, where he once prayed the ?Asr as a traveler with a jamaa?ah from amongst the bigoted Ahnaaf (i.e. followers of the Hanafee madh-hab). When he performed the Sunnah of raising the two hands at its three proper stages of motion, this jamaa?ah then became agitated and began speaking in the Afghani language with the Imaam. So Shaykh Taqee ud-Deen said:

?Then [this jamaa?ah] spoke with the Imaam regarding their dispute with me... And this Imaam was from the Jamaa?ah of Mawlaa Illiyaas (i.e. Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh), and it is a well-known jamaa?ah in India. And they have something with them from tasawwuf (i.e. Soofee practices) ? the members of this jamaa?ah roam about every part of India, Europe, America, and Africa... And what I could gather about them is their strict adherence to the Hanafee opinions in the subsidiary matters, to the point that they do not teach authentic ahaadeeth if they contradict the Hanafee opinions in the subsidiary matters.

And there is something even more disgusting than this, and it is that they perform salaah in the masaajid which are built upon the graves that are taken as idols which are worshipped beside Allaah, and they do not reject their being worshipped...

And I do not prevent our companions from accompanying them and ordering them to reject shirk and innovation whenever they notice something like this according to their capabilities.?[1]


[1] As has been mentioned by several ?Ulamaa?, there is no longer any benefit to accompanying this Jamaa?ah and attempting to teach and correct them simply because they do not desire truth and have shown no inclination towards it at any stage in the 80+ years of their misguidance existence. Rather, as Shaykh al-Fawzaan stated, the Tableegh have not come to be taught, rather, they have come to teach their innovations and heretical beliefs. As for rejecting their shirk and innovations without accompanying them, then this is certainly binding upon all those who are able. And Allaah 'Azz wa Jal knows best.

NEW! ? Shaykh Rabee' al-Madkhalee Responds to Those Who Attempt to Include the Tableegh Into Ahl us-Sunnah

While refuting ?Abdur-Rahmaan ?Abdul-Khaaliq, the Shaykh said: As for the third: Then it is his rejection of the inclusion of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh and the hizb of Ikhwaan ul-Muslimeen alongside of the Mu?tazilah and Khawaarij and deeming them to be amongst the sects. And it is his rejection of those who state that these groups are neither upon the guidance of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) , nor upon his Sunnah, nor upon his way and methodology.

So we ask: Is Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh founded upon that which the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Companions were upon, just as the Messenger of Allaah (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) distinguished between the saved sect and the destroyed sects?

Does the Deobandee Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh keep the books of tawheed upon the manhaj of the Salaf us-Saalih in their schools, such as as-Sunnah of al-Laalikaa?ee, ash-Sharee?ah of al-Aajurree, al-Ibaanah of Ibn Battah, and al-Waasitiyyah, al-Hamawiyyah, at-Tadmuriyyah, and as-Sawaa?iq al-Mursalah?

And do they love these books and their people and advise the people to study them? Or do they wage war against these books and their people, and accuse them and their people of misguidance, and hold fast to the books of innovation, such as an-Nisfiyyah, and al-Masaayirah, and the books of ar-Raazee, and al-Eejee, and other than them from the books of ?aqeedah of the Maatureediyyah, Ashaa?irah, and Jahmiyyah?

And regarding tawheed ul-?ibaadah, do they hold fast to Kitaab ut-Tawheed and its explanations, and the book at-Tawassul wal-Waseelah, and ar-Radd ?Ala al-Bakree, and Ighaathat ul-Luhfaan, and what is similar to them?

Or do they wage war against these books and wage war against their people, and study the books of kalaam (i.e. rhetoric not based upon textual evidences), logic, and philosophy, and the books of tasawwuf based on shirk?! And do they love the people of hadeeth - the monotheists - because they are the people of tawheed who wage war against shirk and wage war against t?ateel (i.e. distortion of the Religion), [and do they love] Ahl us-Sunnah, those who adhere to the book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) ?! Or do they hate them and wage war against them?!

And lastly, they, alongside of all of these calamities, make oaths of adherence to four Soofee orders: the Naqshabandiyyah, the Sahrawardiyyah, the Jishtiyyah, and the Qaadiriyyah.

And they have [beliefs of] hulool (i.e. divine inter-dwelling), and wahdat ul-wujood, and the belief that the Awleeyaa? act independently in their existence. And their support is "Tableeghee Nisaab", and it is filled with misguided beliefs and fabricated ahaadeeth. And in addition to all of this, they are Murji?ah ? and these affairs have surpassed the level of regular occurrence (i.e. they are confirmed to be true and consistently-occurring).

And the statement that it is not permissible to include them with the innovated sects does not comply with the manhaj of the Salaf and does not comply with intelligence nor legislation, and [consists of] rejecting realities which are as clear as the sun. Then, in their fiqh, they are a people of opinions and bigotry who reject hundreds of authentic ahaadeeth in dozens of fiqh-related topics.

Indeed, Shaykh ul-Islaam [Ibn Taymiyyah] included the likes of those people amongst the Jahmiyyah with regards to their beliefs, for he said that the Ashaa?irah are amongst the Jahmiyyah except for those who embrace the book al-Ibaanah of Abee al-Hasan al-Ash?aree. So this is a clear case of their being included with the Jahmiyyah. And the Salaf used to declare as innovators whoever used to say ? recitation of the Qur?aan is created...? and used to declare as disbelievers whoever used to say that the Qur?aan is created...

NEW! ? Shaykh Saalih al-Atram ? Member of the Council of Senior Scholars ? Explains the Corrupt, Hollow Da?wah of the Tableegh

The Shaykh was asked about Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh, so he responded: ...And they call to Allaah by abandoning what Allaah has made obligatory upon them with regards to their children or parents. And they call to Allaah by traveling such that they can soften the hearts [of people] without giving them any ahkaam in fear of losing them.

Yet the [correct] da?wah to Allaah includes informing mankind of what Allaah has made obligatory upon them and warning them against that which Allaah has forbade them, just as we demonstrated in our initial speech; that the legislation of Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) consists of commanding [the good] and forbidding [the evil].

And if not, then the commanding [of the good] of Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) would only be an empty, meaningless conveyance of orders. Also, in spite of this, it (the correct da'wah) does not completely consist of orders such as the Salaah. Nevertheless, would [the Tableegh] come upon the worshipper of idols and those who seek assistance from the graves and tell them to abandon [these actions]? No, no, they would not say this ? [fearing that] they would alienate [those people and therefore lose them]. So where is this da?wah?

And they rigidly limit the da?wah to Allaah to graduated days and times ? three days, forty days, and three months. And at the end, what do they visit? A masjid containing the grave of a dead man ? this is their da?wah to Allaah!!!

The [correct] da?wah to Allaah between the Muslims [consists of] arousing them towards the Tawheed of Allaah and His worship, and guiding them away from falling into innovation and forbidden matters.

NEW! ? Shaykh ?Abdul-Azeez Bin Baaz Rebukes Jamaa?at u-Tableegh For Their Abandoning the Da?wah to Tawheed

Question: May Allaah give you success. The caller, if he is in a land in which shirk is spread and [instead] occupies himself with rejecting the major sins, then is he rewarded for this?

Shaykh Bin Baaz: No. This person has no baseerah (knowledge with insight). He should occupy himself with rejecting shirk. Leaving aside the major sins does not benefit one if he remains upon shirk. But one should also occupy himself with clarifying tawheed and its proofs and clarifying the various types of shirk, such that he might be saved from shirk. So if he is saved from shirk, then he has been saved from a great evil. As for the major sins, then they are under the will[1]. So he should strive to clarify the proofs of tawheed and the proofs of shirk so that he might accept this from him, and so that Allaah will remove him from kufr and enter him into Islaam.

Question: O Shaykh, may Allaah give you peace. [What is the ruling on] he who goes out to call to Allaah and says: ?Let us not call to tawheed ul-uloohiyyah because it creates division?"

Shaykh Bin Baaz: No. This is incorrect. This is the way of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh from India and Pakistan. Their ignorance is wrong.  The foundation is the call to tawheed if he is calling disbelievers[2]. But if he is calling Muslims, it is known that he should call them to salaah and the virtuous actions, and to the abandonment of sins. But if he is calling disbelievers, then it is necessary that he calls them to the tawheed of Allaah first, similar to what the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) said to Mu?aadh: ?Call them testify that there is none worthy of worship but Allaah...?

Source: Sharh Fath ul-Majeed (Tape 4A) by way of the following thread on sahab:

[1] This means that if Allaah wills, he can forgive the muwahhid?s major sins, and if He wills, he can punish him for these sins. As for the mushrik, then the one who dies upon it will not be forgiven and will remain in the fire eternally.
[2] This includes both disbelievers who claim Islaam, such as the Qubooriyyeen, Qadariyyah, Jahmiyyah, and extreme Rawaafidh, as well as those who do not, like the People of the Book.

NEW! ? Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan Refutes the Distorted Interpretations of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh

Question: What is the meaning of the Statement of Allaah...

 Aali Imran (3):110

You [true believers in Islmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islm has forbidden), and you believe in Allh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fsiqn (disobedient to Allh - and rebellious against Allh's Command).

...because some of those who established the principles of Jamaa?at ut-Tableegh interpreted this to mean that a person should go out on khurooj for four months in his lifetime?

Shaykh al-Fawzaan: This is distortion of the Qur?aan, an interpretation without a valid face to it. He didn?t say ?kharajat? (went out), he said ?ukhrijat lin-naas? (raised up for mankind). So Allaah raised [this nation] up. And it does not mean khurooj for four months or ten months, but it means that this nation has been distinguished from other nations in what Allaah has mentioned:

 Aali Imran (3):110

You [true believers in Islmic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wasallam) and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rf (i.e. Islmic Monotheism and all that Islm has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islm has forbidden), and you believe in Allh. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fsiqn (disobedient to Allh - and rebellious against Allh's Command).

And He did not say that you should go out to the people for four months or forty days ? all of this is from the distortion and misguidance of the people of innovations, and speaking about Allaah without knowledge, and interpreting the Speech of Allaah with other than its [correct] interpretation. And there is no might nor power except with Allaah. Yes.

  A series of articles refuting and exposing the Shirk and Bid'ah found in the Books of the 'Tablighee sect':

wasim.ahmed    -- 23-08-2007 @ 11:28 AM

Shaykh Dr Abdullaah ibn Zayd al-Musallam hafidhahullaah , one of the foremost students of Imaam Ibn Othaymeen rahimahullaah reported in his sharh of Fadhlul Islaam by Shaykhul Islaam Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhaab rahimahullaah while mentioning about Imaam Ibn Abdul Wahhaab & his da'wah, the fruits of which we see in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that Alhamdulillaah, thought there are over 100,000 Masaajid in the kingdom one will not observe Shirk in them nor have they been constructed on graves which is a common phenomenon in other countries.

He also mentioned about the deviation of Jamaa'at Ikhwaanul Muslimeen & Jamaa'atut Tableegh & their efforts in spreading their false manhaj here in the kingdom especially among the youth here.

He told that he personally asked Imaam Ibn Othaymeen whether he considered Jamaa'atut Tableegh among Ahlus Sunnah or Ahlul Bid'ah & he (ibn Othaymeen) told him that he conidered them to be from the Ahlul Bid'ah.

Shaykh Abdullaah's lectures can be downloaded from this website

BaarakAllaahu feekum,

  The Arabic book of al-Allamah Dr. Taqiuddin al-Hilali rahimahullah which refuted the Tablighi Jamaat way back in 1399AH is scanned in pdf format on the Shaykh's website at

InshAllaah it will be good if atleast some parts of the book are translated since even after 30 years many Muslims are still being misguided by the Tablighi Jamaat.
