Tablighi Jamaat: a response to accusations against 40days and 4months 3 days.
....................and you go out with them in order to purify yourself, there is nothing wrong with that. There are many people whom Allaah has guided at their hands.
Al-Baab al-Maftooh, no. 10, P. 304.
Enjoining the good and forbidding the evil is a collective responsibility of the Muslims (Fardh al-Kifaya). Allah Most High says:
"You are the best of Nations, involved for mankind, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is evil." (Surah Ali Imran, V:110).
Allah has asked from us Our lives and Properties ..............
This collective responsibility of the Muslims requires an organized effort, and this is exactly what the Jama'ah of Tabligh is doing.
that because of our other engagements most of the jamaat does not spend full 3 days.
Say for example .. a group of say 5 brothers were sent to Calcutta from Delhi and nothing is fixed, and one brother said he has come for 3 days, two for 6 days, one for 20 days and another 40 days.
It would be rather problematic. Actually if you sent them anywhere it would be problematic.
This is the reason that a fixed time is specified so that it is easier to organise a jamaat so that they will be together all the time,
However there is no restriction on going for 1 day / 2 days / 4 days / 1 month etc make the responsible brothers aware the time that you intend to go for so it's easier to send them in an appropriate jamaat.
Imaam Bukhari (rahmatullahi alayhi) has mentioned a hadith [more or less] that whomsoever goes in the path of Allah (fee-sabeelillah) and dust gathers on their feet, then Allah will forbid the fire of Hell on them. This hadith was put under the Chapter of Juma'a and Imaam Bukhari has applied it to all Muslims going for Juma Prayers:
أدركني أبو عبس، وأنا أذهب إلى الجمعة، فقال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: (من اغبرت قدماه في سبيل الله حرمه الله على النار
"How much time & sacrifice should Muslims put-in (or sacrifice) for the pleasure of Allah so that we are closer to the practice (manhaj) of the sahaba?"
ALLAH pak says in surah ASRA
And do not follow a thing about which you have no knowledge. Surely, the ear, the eye and the heart - each one of them shall be interrogated about. [17:36]
Very clear Hadith is there in Saheeh Muslim
The prohibition of speaking about everything that one hears.Matan of Hadeeth starts with
“KAFA BILAMRE KAZIBAN……………………………(MUSLIM SHAREEF)
(Translation ) “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘It is sufficient lying for a man to speak of everything that he hears.’”
(As translated in Riyazussaliheen translation)
May Allah save all muslims for spreading any wrong information,and save from demand of the Akhrat.
