Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Salaam Alaikum Burhan Bhai,
Burhan Bhai I would like to send you a book (in Urdu) which I feel a sincere Alim like you must study and speak the truth therafter. I am not sure whether you have read the book " Tablighi Jamaat - Taariq - Akhaid" (Tablighi Jamaat - History and Beliefs) by Dr. Syed Taalib Ur Rahman. Blood of every Muslim with little knowledge of Islam would boil once he reads this book. The critic has brought to fore the poison this Jamaat is spreading amongst the innocent of the Ummah.
I hope you have read it, if not give me the postal address where I can send this book for you. InshAllah I will send it you at the earliest. Hope Allah (SWT) honours you with the privilige of exposing Shirk these people are spreading in the name of Islam and brings back to Deen those who have become victims of this Jamaat.
May Allah (SWT) save us all from Shirk and guide us to Siraat Al Mustaqeem.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
My beloved brother, the truth is that I have not read the mentioned book, and unfortunately I cannot read Urdu as a language. What I will try to do is get a copy of the book in the English language if available, and Insha Allah, read it.
Brother, the duty of the believers should always be to declare and make clear the Truth of the Quran and Sunnah to whoever wants to listen to good caution, no matter what religion, or creed, or sect he might claim he belongs to. Once we declare the Truth from the Quran and Sunnah with sincere intentions, the falsehood will become evident to the people who follow falsehood, for nothing remains after the Truth except falsehood.
If one tries to list the number of ways one practices falsehood, or shirk, or innovations, etc.; it would be practically impossible to compile such a list! When one goes to buy something, and has the opportunity to compare the original and the fake, a person with simple common-sense will be able to differentiate between them! One may compare a fake product to another fake product, and may decide one fake is better than the other fake; but only when one sees and experiences the original product will one realize the real difference between the original and the fake! There might be any number of fakes, but the original product will always be one and the same!
Therefore, the believers should use their energies in propagating the Truth from the Quran and Sunnah to all who care to listen to good caution; for when one sees and realizes the Truth of the Quran and Sunnah, the Truth will stand clear of all the falsehood.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verse 81:And declare, The Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. And falsehood is a thing that must by its nature, vanish!
Because if we start declaring so and so sect is wrong, and so and so people are false, it will create nothing but fitnah and animosity between mankind; but when we say that Allah and His Messenger (saws) declare that people who do such and such deeds are right, and people who do such and such deeds are wrongthen the chances of the people accepting the Truth are much higher.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
