The dawa of Jama’at Tableegh!

Question To Shaykh Yahya On Jama’at Tableegh

Question: Some of the tabliqiyeen (jama’at tableegh) us as proof the hadith: Convey from me even if its an ayah, that its not a condition for a person that wants to establish dawah, that he has to be a scholar?

Answer: The dawah of Allah can not be established except by someone that has with him knowledge, or something of knowledge. As for him being a jaahil, how can he establish dawah and he doesn’t know what dawah is in the first place (he has no knowledge)?!? This is wrong, and its in opposition to the the dawah(call) of the messengers.

Allah (the most High) says:

قُلْ هَـٰذِهِ سَبِيلِي أَدْعُو إِلَى اللَّهِ ۚ عَلَىٰ بَصِيرَةٍ أَنَا وَمَنِ اتَّبَعَنِي

Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم): “This is my way; I invite unto Allah (i.e. to the Oneness of Allah – Islamic Monotheism) with sure knowledge, I and whosoever follows me [Yusuf Ayah:108]

This is wrong.Yes, enjoining the good and forbidding the evil to the extent of the of ability of the person from what he knows, even if he is from the general folk,it is compulsory for him to enjoin the good from that which knows, and that he forbids the evil from that which he knows, and that he calls to Allah from that which he knows.

From the statement of Allah (the exalted):

وَلْتَكُن مِّنكُمْ أُمَّةٌ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى الْخَيْر

Let there arise out of you a group of people inviting to all that is good [Aal-Imran Ayah:104]

Every person loves to be from this group.

And from the statement of the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him):

“Whoever among you sees an evil, then let him change it with his hand. If he cannot, then with his tongue, and if he cannot, then with his heart – and that is the weakest of faith.” [Muslim]

As for the issue of him ascribing to himself that he’s a daa’ee (caller) and a mualim (teacher) and (in reality) hes upon jahl (ignorance), the truth is this is incorrect.What the jamaa’at tableegh are doing May Allah guide them, By Allah it is wrong! and they are harming more than they are benefiting.
