Dressed in coarse, simple clothes, with bags and beddings on their shoulders, they somehow had a religious aura about them as they
pressed onwards. In those now far-off days they looked like creatures from another world, but nowadays they have become such a familiar sight that they hardly need description.
Innumerable people of this kind travelling in caravans have opted for the hard way to serve the cause of God. Many such groups, by turns, are constantly on the move. This great movement
generally known as Tablighi Jama’at, has inspired in people a new fervour, a new zeal to serve the divine cause. Its founder surprisingly was a slight, short-statured individual, rather unimpressive in personality. There were times when he found it
difficult to express himself because of his bad stammer due to the impediment in his speech.
It was this extraordinary figure, known as Maulana
Ilyas, who founded the Tablighi Jama’at, which was
to inspire in thousands of people a religious zeal
which had been unknown for centuries. Although
frail to the point of physical weakness, he possessed
great inner strength which provided solutions to
every problem he was confronted with. His
indomitable will and staunchness of purpose in
guiding people along the right path lead him to
exert himself in a manner which many a physically
stronger person would have found arduous.
