Muffassir E Quran Maulana Ahmad Ali Lahouri Rahimullah
I also started the work on this pattern but finally Allah accepted Maulana Ilyas for it.
This work is great it has danger from Groupisnm (Tahazzub in Urdu)
Hakimul Ummah Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi r.alayhi
"Molvi Ilyas has changed 'yas' (despair) into 'as' (hope)"
"This is the original effort."
Syeikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin BazRahimullah
“You have to stop criticizing them, or do what they have done.”
In his response to Ibrahim Abdurrahman al-Hussein Ibn Baz stated that he is still holding to his opinion in what he wrote about them previously, because, thanks to them, Allah benefited enormously other people, and guided many people. Therefore, we must thank them for their efforts and encourage them and draw their attention to things that they might not be aware of, because Muslims must advise each other. Letter dated 27/01/1407 A.H.
"As for shunning them or ignoring them and giving warnings to people not to mix with them is a terrible mistake indeed. The danger far outweighs its benefits."
The people of knowledge should cooperate with them and make up for any shortcomings that may result from them.
In his response to Abdel-Selam Al-Sulaimani he stated that he learnt from trustworthy people who are impossible to lie, like the lecturers of Tawheed in the Islamic University (Al-Jami’a Al-Islamiya) and others, that the Tablighi group are patient in calling to Islam, being affectionate and steadfast. Allah guided, thanks to them, many people who are astray. Letter No. 325 dated 20/03/1406 A.H.
Muhammad ibn al-Uthaymeen
Usually in every issue there are two extremes and a middle way. Some people praise this group a great deal and encourage going out with them; others condemn them a great deal and warn against them more than they would warn you about a lion. And some people tread a middle path between those two extremes.
I think that there is some good in this group; they call others to Islam and have a clear influence that no other daaiyahs have had. Many kaafirs have become believers at their hands, and many evil doers has Allaah guided through them.
Moreover they have an attitude of humility and selflessness that is not found in many others.
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.
Shaikh Abu Bakar Jabir Al Jazairi
(Ustad Jamea Islamia Madeena Munawwara and Masjid e Nabvi)
“Now a days talk about Tablighi Jamaat is very common and base on his knowledge and understanding anyone praises it or criticize it.
For this reason I am writing this book so I become free from my responsibility and clear my duty of informing the right things and afterall everything has to be presented to Allah”.

Sheikhul Islam Hazrat Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani r.alayhi
"Dear brothers! This is a tablighi gathering and this tabligh was originally the practice of Rasulullah s.a.w. The work you are doing is therefore not insignificant. I give you the glad tidings that Allah has granted you the opportunity to carry out a great service."
Hazrat Maulana Qari Muhammad Tayyib r.alayhi
"There are four ways of attaining self reformation and by good chance, they all happen to be found in the tablighi jama'at. It includes sitting in the company of the pious, it includes dzikr and fikr, it includes brotherhood for the pleasure of Allah, it includes taking lessons from enemies and also taking account of oneself. The tablighi jama'at is a conglomeration of the four. For an average person there can be no way better than this for attaining self-reformation.
Hazrat Mufti Mahmud Hassan Gangohi r.alayhi
"The tablighi jama'at gave Darul Ulum (Deoband) a Mufti. The Darul Ulum needed a Mufti, so they requested the tablighi jama'at who gave them a Mufti as I am first a tablighi then a Mufti."
Hazrat Maulana Yusuf Binori r.alayhi
"The work of da'wah is the greater jihad."
Syeikh Muhammad Aman Al-Jamy r.alayhi
"One thing about them that should be accorded special recognition, is that this jamaat feel the sweetness that could not be felt by other jamaats that are carrying out dakwah illallah, their patience and tolerence in dealing with those people whom are undergoing rectification with them and those people who are given guidance, together with husnu dzoon towards them. Their patience is like the patience of a mother towards her beloved child."
Syeikh Saleh Aly Asy-Syuwaiman r.alayhi
"Individuals and personalities from this jamaat came from all over the world. They have one form, one appeal, one idiom, one purpose. As if they were offspring from one person, or as if Allah SWT creates one heart and shares out amongst them. They have no aspiration except desire to hold fast onto the principles of Deen and making effort of rectification between Muslims, paving guidance for the non-Muslims towards the path of Allah. How could the confused and ignorant people dare to abuse and revile these righteous people?"
"And in truth, whosoever participate and join them will certainly become da'ie ilallah through practice and training and long-lasting companionship. Would it be better if I know them since I was a student at the university before, indeed I would have become 'allamah' in dakwah work and all knowledge. This, by Allah, what I declare to Him. And He, the Almighty, will certainly hold me responsible on this on the Day where no wealth, nor kinship, nor help from anyone is of any use."
