What about Tabligh Jam’aat?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam,

They are one group working to call people to Allah and the way of His Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace).

The scholars of Syria and Jordan praise their commitment, and general think well with them, even if some have some reservations about particular matters. Like Shaykh Mu’min al-Annan said, “They are filling a great void in the Ummah.”

However, the way of Islam is to look at the intent behind actions and whether good preponderates or not; otherwise, few human endeavors are free of error.

Allah Most High says,

“Say: Each one does according to his way, and your Lord is Best Aware of him whose way is right.” [Qur’an, 17.84]

In Imam Sawi (Allah have mercy on him) explained the word shakilatihi (‘his way’) in his Hashiya on Tafsir al-Jalalayn:

“This means that each one of us and you acts according to their state, disposition, and that which their soul was habituated to…. And in this verse there is proof that the outward points to the inward.” [Sawi, Hashiyat al-Jalalay, 3.337]

Sufyan ibn Abdullah (Allah be pleased with him) related that, “I asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, tell me something about Islam which I could not ask anyone but you.’ He said (Allah bless him & give him peace), ‘Say, “I believe in Allah,” and then remain upright.'” [Muslim]

And Allah alone gives success.

Wassalam,
Faraz Rabbani
