Q: What are the six points of tabligh about? And does it have anything to do with bidah or becoming a different sect of Islam? I Have also come to know that females should not have a bayaan in talims. Could you please explain why?
A: The six points discussed in Tableeghi circles are: Kalimah, Salaah, Ilm, Zhikr, Ikraam-e-Muslim, and Da’wat. All these concepts are part and parcel of Shariah. They are mentioned in quran and sunnah. Any Muslim knows what these points are. So the Tableeghis are not speaking about anything outside of Shariah. This, therefore, cannot be termed bid’ah.
As for ladies ta’leem, if there are only females in the gathering then it is permissible for a lady to lecture to women. That type of bayaan is allowed, provided she speaks on the above mentioned six points and not anything contrary to Shariah.
