Beware Tablighi Jamaat

The movement of Tableeghi Jamaat is being utilised by the enemies of Islam as an effective instrument in their struggle to prevent the emergence of a true  Islamic movement in Europe and elsewhere in the world. Therefore, it is incumbent on all Muslims to disown it and discourage its activity in every way. The British were continually looking for ways of infiltrating and subverting Islam. They kept,through their comprehensive spy network, a very careful eye, on any new Muslim group and movement. The Tableeghi Jamaat was set up under the British Rule in India. After closely watching the Jamaat for some time, the British realised that here was exactly what they were looking for, a movement that totally absorbed the energy of its members and yet did not threaten British domination in any way as the doctrine of Jihad was totally absent in this movement. They saw that instead of the Jamaat’s directing their energies outwardly towards their legitimate Kaafir enemies, was now directed inwardly towards the
rest of the Muslims. Therefore, it was a group that was allowed to
flourish. This news was spread to other interested parties.

THEIR BRAND OF TRUE ISLAM: The book that is held by many among the Tableeghi Jamaat to be as important as the study of the Quran itself is the “Teachings of Islam.” In “Teachings of Islam” the Jamaat says that there is “NO WAY to gain honour, happiness, peace and tranquility in this life OTHER THAN to adopt and firmly hold on to the work and system of Tabligh.” This statement shows that the Tableeghi Jamaat wants to be an exclusive sect of Muslims, which excludes all other Muslims who do not follow its peculiar definition of what it means to convey the message of Islam, a definition which is
clearly and erroneous and far removed from the one which Allah gives
in the Quran. One can only conclude from this statement that all other
Muslims are considered by them to be misguided.

If one reads through their five point action plan which the author of
“Teachings of Islam” says that one must put into practice and “will
automatically ensure the growth and expansion of Islam in its true
form.” He claims that this is the Prophetic method and was followed by
their ancestors and early Muslims. If one looks deeply, this five
point action plan meets the complete approval of the enemies of Islam,
since there is no mention anywhere of anything which might even
slightly inconvenience a Kaafir government. How different this is from
the actual practice of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)!

>From the day the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) made his

Prophethood public, the very people who held him in high regards
became hostile to him. Whenever the message of Islam is truly
conveyed, it strikes at the very roots of every other system with
which it comes into contact. How different is the case with the
Tableeghi Jamaat. The British Weekly, “The Economist”, the mouthpiece
of the Kufaar, in its article entitled “The Other Side of Islam” pays
glowing tribute to the Tableeghi Jamaat, saying, “So long as such
movements exist, and attract millions of Muslims, essential Islam
remains alive and well.” Even the Kaafir authorities positively
welcome what is happening, as they clearly do in the case of the
Tableeghi Jamaat, because they know that other than the true Islam is
being propagated.

Their brand of true Islam only centres around Ijtima, Ghust, Chilla
and Kitaab reading. To them, Moulood, Urs Celebrations, Esaale Sawaab,
the Recitation of Salaams, visiting of the Mazaars of Awliya Allah,
etc. are all Shirk and Bid’at.

TABLEEGHI JAMAATS ROLE IN KUFAAR COUNTRIES: The thousands of members of the Tableeghi Jamaat are utilising all their energy exclusively inwards towards other Muslims and leaves the Kaafir powers to pursue their Godless exploitation of the Muslims completely unimpeded. They have defined Jihad to be “spreading the Kalima of Allah and enforcing of Allah’s Commandments.” (Teachings of Islam). In the very same book,
under the heading of “General Principles”, the following point is made – “No controversial matter or points of secondary importance to be discussed at any time …. and confine all talk to the main points of Tabligh.” Thus, a programme originally designed to ensure that the
adherents of Tableeghi Jamaat did not come into conflict with the
British authorities in India has now been extended to include all
aspects of Kufaar domination in the world. The members of the Jamaat
are actually forbidden to question it at all. No wonder the enemies of
Islam are delighted.

This is the reason why the Tableeghi Jamaat moves freely in Kufaar
countries in Europe and the rest of the world, while other Muslims are
being imprisoned, tortured, and killed on a daily basis. In Israel,
under Zionist control, the Jamaat is allowed free access to any part
to do “Allah’s Work” while Palestinian men, women and children, who
are opposing Zionist rule, are tortured and killed.

It is also not surprising that under the Apartheid government in South
Africa and under the cruel “State of Emergency” in which gatherings
were restricted and carefully monitored under the vigilant eye of the
then police force, the Ijtima’s used to draw crowds of thousands of
devotees – and there was not a single policeman in sight. It is
obvious. With the type of Islam that they portrayed of being
completely subservient to Kufaar politics and their rejection of Jihad
in all its practical aspects, this Jamaat was not even considered as a
threat. Not a word was uttered by the Jamaat’s leaders condemning the
then Apartheid regime. This is their policy throughout the world – do
not condemn the Kufaar and the Kufaar governments!

has also flourished under the puppet governments of Muslim countries
who rule in the name of they Kaafir paymasters (Israel, America,
Britain, France, etc.) – thousands upon thousands as well-behaved,
submissive Muslims praying in their mosques, quite content to live
under a system which is opposed to Islam in every way and which is
openly dedicated to the suppression of true Islam wherever it


(1) EATING AND SLEEPING IN MOSQUES : Uninvited, they take over the
local mosques for days at a time, sleeping and eating in them and
imposing their own programme in complete disregard of the actual needs
and on-going organisation of the community concerned.

(2) RECRUITMENT DRIVES: They also cause great offence to Muslims in
the way that they disrupt the worship in the mosques they visit by
they announcements immediately after the Fard prayers and their
offensive recruitment drives. As a result of which is to keep away
from the mosque many people who would normally be present. They
encourage and force poorer ignorant Muslims to leave their family and
places of work for 3, 10, 20, 40, etc. days and go out for Ghast,
while they themselves, belonging to the upper strata in society have
accumulate enough wealth to live comfortable lives. We often hear
their women-folk, of course, after being brainwashed by their
husbands, as saying “Allah will give us Jannat for allowing our
husbands to go in the path of Allah.”

those not in the Jamaat as inferior beings in need of guidance. They
often repeat the same speeches regardless of the people that they are
speaking to. Much of their activity is based on having a bad opinion
of Muslims, something in fact forbidden by Allah and completely
contrary to the Messenger (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), who, as we
know, refused to listen to anything that would give him a bad opinion
of any of the Muslims. In “Teachings of Islam” they condemn all
Muslims as only being involved in vice and sinning. Besides, 99.9% of
their devotees in South Africa belong to the Gujerati community and
look down upon other ethnic groups!

address their message solely to Muslims, the vast majority of whom are
as knowledgeable or more knowledgeable than they themselves are,
ignoring the Kaafir populations among whom they move, who actually are
the people to whom the message should be directed. Allah’s words are
frequently, and sometimes specifically, directed towards the Kufaar
and the efforts of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and the
Companions (radiya’allahu ‘anhum ajma’een) were devoted to conveying
Islam to them (kuffar). Even when they visit the African townships,
their only aim is to “convert” the poorer African Muslims (who have
already reverted to Islam) to their brand of Islam. In fact, they do
not even pass the message of Islam to the non-Muslims in the

Tableeghi Jamaat are sincere, let them hold their next annual
gathering on the East bank of Jordan and let them cross the river and
march to Al-Quds and liberate it from Jewish/Zionist occupation. Let
them hold their Ijtima near the Babri Masjid in India and counter-
attack the might of Hindu extremist and capture the mosque. Lem them
hold their Ijtima near the Shia’ centre in Ottawa and take over the
centre in defence of true Sunni beliefs. They would not! The Jamaat is
only interested in increasing its number and wasting the energy of
thousand and thousand of Muslims.

When the Tableeghi Jamaat is asked about their complete indifference
to the dominance of the Kufaar, they say “We are not yet strong enough
to do anything yet.” Yet, they boast of the large numbers that attend
their Ijtima’s. The Quran says that if you are a hundred, steadfast,
you will overcome two hundred and if there are a thousand of you, you
will overcome two thousand by Allah’s permission (Surah al-Anfal:
65-6). The Tableeghi Jamaat’s lack of strength cannot be considered as
a valid excuse.

And speaking about the mass Nikahs that take place at the Ijtimas,
which is by the way, a meeting place of the rich upper class, the
grooms are immediately shoved off to sleep in some mosque for 40 days.
And after 40 days, these “spiritually enlightened” individuals qualify
as Molvis!


The Jamaat claims that it is a Sunnah of the Prophets and the Sahaba
and, on the other hands, it says that Molvi Ilyas is the founder of
this movement. The questions we ask, are:-

1. If, in reality, this is a Sunnah of the Prophet (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) as claimed, then it must be proven by authentic
Islamic books that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and his
Sahaba also used to form Jamaats and do Ghast and Tableegh of Kalimah
and Salaah amongst Muslims.
2. Why was this Sunnah ignored for 1 419 years? Do we classify all the
past spiritual luminaries as anti-Sunnah?
3. If this is a Sunnah practice, then surely Molvi Ilyas cannot be its
founder. But, if he is the founder, then obviously this type of
Tableegh did not exist before him. It is a Bid’ah!

It is the religious duty of the members of Tableeghi Jamaat to clarify
the position with their Tableegh work and deceiving the Muslim
community. The answers are obvious. This is a new movement founded by
a Molvi Ilyas and definitely not a Sunnah.


To have good and strong Imaan, one must have the proper Aqeeda. It is
for this reason that we quote a few un-Islamic beliefs of the leaders
of the Tableeghi Jamaat together with the proper Islamic answers. The
present Molvis and devotees of the T. Jamaat refuse to condemn the
persons who wrote such bad beliefs and to even disassociate
themesleves from such false beliefs. The un-Islamic beliefs which we
have quoted below are quotations from those individuals who possess
such beliefs and by writing them in this handbill, we have no
intention of Kufr.

FALSE BELIEF 1: “Allah can speak lies”. (“Barahine Qaatia” by Khaleel
Ambetwi; “Yakrozi” by Ismaeel Dehlwi; “Fatawa Rasheedia” by Rasheed
Ahmed Gangohi). ANSWER: Lies is a defect which is not worthy of the
Zaat of Almighty Allah and is totally Muhaal (Impossible) for Almighty
Allah. Allah is free from all shortages and defects thus making lies
Muhaal for Almighty Allah.

FALSE BELIEF 2: “The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) had died
and is mixed in the sand.” (“Taqweeyat-ul Imaan” by Ismaeel Dehlwi).
ANSWER: It has been stated in the Hadith: “Verily, Almighty Allah has
made it Haraam upon the earth to eat the bodies of the Ambiya”. It has
also been stated that Ambiya are alive and are blessed with Sustenance
from Almighty Allah.

FALSE BELIEF 3: “Every creation, no matter how big or small, is
equivalent to a cobbler before Allah.” (“Taqweeyat-ul Imaan” by
Ismaeel Dehlwi). ANSWER: The Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) is the most beloved Nabi of Almighty Allah. Almighty Allah
took Qasm (Oath) even on the city of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam). He is the greatest of the creations of Almighty Allah. His
every word is accepted in the Court of Allah. He is a perfection in
the Attributes of Almighty Allah and Allah has not created any unique
being besides Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).

FALSE BELIEF 4: “To think of an ox and donkey in Salaah is
permissible, but to think of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) in Salaah is Shirk (Polytheism).” (“Seerate Mustaqeem” by
Ismaeel Dehlwi). ANSWER: For a Muslim to perform any Ibaadat accepting
that it is a noble action of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) is the true sense of Ibaadat. If one reads Salaah thinking
of it as the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam),
then, without doubt, one will think of the Prophet (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam). This belief creates in the mind of the performer the
thought of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). Not only
is the thought of the Prophet in Salaah permissible, it is also the
demand of Shari’ah that one must remember the Holy Prophet (salall
laahu alaihi wasallam) at the time of Tasha’hud. According to the
Fuqaha (Jurists) it is Waajib to believe that the Prophet (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) is observing you and that he is aware of your

FALSE BELIEF 5: Any person who says the Nabi to be Haazir and Naazir
is a Kaafir. (“Jawaahirul Quraan” by Ghulaamullah Khan). ANSWER: Until
and unless we do not accept Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
as being Haazir and Naazir, the concept of Risaalat will be
incomplete. Our Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is Shaahid,
Mubashir and Nazeer.

FALSE BELIEF 6: To commemorate the Meelad is like commemorating the
function of the Hindu deity. (“Baharine Qaatia” by Khaleel Ambethwi).
ANSWER: Meelad is a means of gaining blessings and closeness to
Almighty Allah. It is the practice of all the great predecessors. Many
sources of Shari’ah are available to prove it’s authencity. In fact,
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) observed fast on Monday as
he was born on a Monday.

FALSE BELIEF 7: If Allah wills, then he may create a million
Muhammads. (“Taqweeyatul Imaan”) A Prophet can even come after
Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). (“Tahzeerun Naas”) ANSWER:
The doors of Prophethood have been sealed. Muhammad (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) is the Seal of Prophethood. The Prophet also said
that no Prophet shall come after him. Any person who claims Nabuwat
after the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is a Liar, Dajjal
Kazaab and a Shaitaan.

FALSE BELIEF 8: “Rahmatul Lil Alameen” (Mercy unto the Worlds) is not
a special title of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), but the
Ummati are also “Rahmatul Lil Alameen”. (“Fatawa Rasheedia”) ANSWER:
“Rahmatul Lil Alameen” is the unique quality of Rasoolullah (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) as stated in the Holy Quran.

Note: To believe all these above mentioned false “Islamic” beliefs
makes one a hypocrite, and one is included in the ranks of the Shia,
Rafazi, Khaarijite, Qadiani, Ghair-Muqallid (Ahle Hadith), Tabligi,
Deobandi, Maudoodi, Ahle Quran (People of Quran), etc. which are
totally out of Islam. Any person who falsely claims to be the true
Mahdi is misguided and a Faasiq. Any person who says that Allah can
lie, that the Prophet’s (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) knowledge are
like those of animals, that the Prophet Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) is not the Final Messenger, that the swearing of the Sahaba
does not make one a criminal, that the Prophet’s knowledge is less
than Shaitaan, etc. IS A KAAFIR (totally out of the folds of Islam).
We should not perform Salaah or associate with such persons as their
companionship is detrimental to our Imaan.


The members of Tableeghi Jamaat have become extremely unpopular with
many communities of Muslims throughout the world and even in South
Africa. However, many continue to tolerate them. In fact, what they
do, in the manner of Christian evangelists, is to play on the guilt of
insecure people and then offer them an emotional environment in which
they can redeem themselves and find others in a similar plight who are
ready for the same treatment. Such “conversions” are frequently very
superficial and sometimes superficially quite dangerous for the
individuals concerned.

As we have seen, the ludicrous claim is made that the programme of the
Tableeghi Jamaat comprises in every respect the way followed by the
Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and his Companions (radia’llahu
‘anhum ajma’een), in their establishment of Islam. In fact, the
opposite is true. From its inception, the programme of the Tableeghi
Jamaat was designed, while giving the appearance of Islamic activity,
to leave in place the very Kaafir forces whose explicit intention was
precisely the prevention of the establishment of Islam in any real
way. In the light of all the foregoing:

1. We declare that the Tableeghi Jamaat is, by its own admission, a
deviant sect of Islam and that it is being used by the enemies of
Islam to help them in their continuing battle to prevent governance by
the laws of Allah from being re-established in the world.
2. We therefore call on the leadership of the Tableeghi Jamaat to
acknowledge that they are directly responsible for the misguidance of
millions of Muslims and to abandon their present programme which only
furthers the interest of the enemies of Allah.
3. We therefore call on all members of the Tableeghi Jamaat to reject
the subversive role they have been unwittingly persuaded to play and
leave this sect which is being used by the enemies of Islam to prevent
Allah’s Deen being restored and governance by His Laws re-
4. We therefore call on all Muslims to disown the Tableeghi Jamaat and
to discourage its activities by refusing to give its members
permission to sleep in mosques and to use them for their activities.
And we call on all Muslims to reject the modernist perspective of
Islam that they have been given to and respond to Allah and His
Messenger (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) by giving their wealth and
lives to see the totality of Islam once again re-established on the
