A few comments on the article “The Dream of anti-Islam forces”
Our comments will briefly focus on references made to the Tablighi Jamaat.
To understand the stance of the Tablighi Jamaat, one has to accept that if a
person or group concentrates on one field of activity, it does not mean that
they are opposed to all other fields. While this may be a straightforward
principle of life, only mischief-makers would like to overlook this axiom to
propagate their malevolent precepts.
The Tablighi Jamaat has focused its efforts on reviving the conviction on
Imaan, and bringing the basic A’maal (deeds) into one’s life. Other
activities are left to other Ulama to carry out. Jihad, Social welfare, Ta’
leem (education), politics, Dawah (inviting non-Muslims to Islam) etc. are
being undertaken by other Ulama. The Tablighi Jamaat does not oppose such
efforts, but concentrates it’s energies in its sphere of activity. Can such
non-involvement be construed to mean opposition? The injustice of the writer
in quite apparent.
The Tablighi Jamaat is no secret organisation. It has no offices or office
bearers. All its activities are wide open for the entire world to analyse.
The test of the pudding is in the eating. We challenge any person who has
been poisoned by this article to spend just three days with any Tablighi
Jamaat group to ascertain for himself if the Tablighi Jamaat does teach that
which the writer attributes to them. It will then be clear that the writer
is mischievousness and has a hidden agenda.
We have provided a simple acid test to appraise the worth of the article. We
are confident that this will expose the writer has either been misled or
intentionally wishes to mislead the public.
This is sufficient for the seeker of truth. And salaams be on those striving
to acquire guidance.
and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
