Paperback: 37 pages, booklet
Jama’at at-tabligh is a sect that was founded in the 1920’s in India by Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandahlawi. He was raised as a Deobandi, followed the doctrine of the Maturidis in creed and was a commited sufi. The reference book that the tablighis rely upon is called Fada’il al-A’mal authored by Muhammad Zakariyyah. It is filled with numerous weak and fabricated narrations and stories that contain beliefs contrary tot Islam and the Sunnah of the Prophet -صلى الله عليه وسلم-.
The author has referenced very precisely the strange and deviated beliefs of the tablighi jama’ah and the Deobandis that are unknown to most Muslims. Indeed, many Muslims consider the tablighis to be at the forefront of propagating authentic Islam – that, however, is far from the truth. This book begins appropriately by explaining the hadith of the splitting of the ummah into seventy-three sects and Allah’s command to remain united as one jama’ah upon the truth. Then the autor discusses some of the beliefs of the tablighis in light of the Qur’an and Sunnah.
