v Tablighi Jamaat cares only about Aaaml e Saliha (Good deeds) and it does not care about Faith (Aqeedah).
v Some brothers claimes that their Faith (Aqeedah) is weak and Trust in the oneness of Allah (Tawheed) is weak.
v What is the definition and minimum requirement of knowledge for giving Dawah?
وَمَا كَانَ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ لِيَنفِرُوا كَافَّةً فَلَوْلاَ نَفَرَ مِنْ كُلِّ فِرْقَةٍ مِنْهُمْ طَائِفَةٌ لِيَتَفَقَّهُوا فِي الدِّينِ وَلِيُنذِرُوا قَوْمَهُمْ إِذَا رَجَعُوا إِلَيْهِمْ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَحْذَرُونَ (التوبة: 122

Now we will discuss in detail these three topics Insha Allah………….Write now a very brief introduction is being given that will be expanded…..Insha Allah
and has been well explained by salfussalehin Scholars
And All scholars of Ahle sunnat wal Jamaat is agreed that Aqeedah has to be derived only from Quran and Hadith.
In Aqeedah they derive it from Quran and Hadith on the understanding of Sahaba Tabaee salafus salehin Imams of Ahle sunnat wal jamaat.
If needed and dilactic has to be used by Scholars in Aqeedah to dispel any Fitnah/deviated thought …………Ashari-Maturidi scholars follow the Kalam of Imam Abul Hasan Ashari Rahimullah, and Abu Mansoor Maturidi Rahimullah………This use of kalam was done by Imam abul hasan ashari out of necessity due to Fitnah of Muatazillah and not out of fun………………
There are 3-4 points of debate on this issue. But before going into the issue first we will discuss in brief aqeedah itself.
What is Aqeedah?
Narrated Abu Huraira:
One day while the Prophet was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, "What is faith?" Allah's Apostle replied, 'Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection." Then he further asked, "What is Islam?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan." Then he further asked, "What is Ihsan (perfection)?" Allah's Apostle replied, "To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you." Then he further asked, "When will the Hour be established?" Allah's Apostle replied, "The answerer has no better knowledge than the questioner. But I will inform you about its portents.
1. When a slave (lady) gives birth to her master.
2. When the shepherds of black camels start boasting and competing with others in the construction of higher buildings. And the Hour is one of five things which nobody knows except Allah.
The Prophet then recited: "Verily, with Allah (Alone) is the knowledge of the Hour--." (31. 34) Then that man (Gabriel) left and the Prophet asked his companions to call him back, but they could not see him. Then the Prophet said, "That was Gabriel who came to teach the people their religion." Abu 'Abdullah said: He (the Prophet) considered all that as a part of faith.
All the Six Articles of Aqeeda has been further detailed by other Verses of the Holy Quran and Ahadith.
(Discussion ………..To be continued Insha Allah )
2.Following of one of Four Imam
"As far as the Islamic rules are concerned, there are of two types. The first are those which are known by necessity to be part of the Deen of the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wa sallam like the five prayers, Zakaat, fasting in Ramadhan, Hajj; the prohibition of adultery, wine and so on. Taqleed is not allowed in these issues since they are such that everyone should know and understand. The second type are those rules which need to be understood and extrapolated such as the details of the rituals of worship, transactions and weddings, for example, Taqleed is allowed in these issues since Allah says:"So ask the people of remembrance if you know not." (Surah Al-Nahl: 43)Al-Faqih wal Mutafaqqihah - page 67, vol.2 printed by Darul Iftaa, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
…….to connect oneself in peripheral issues with an Imam like four school of Jurisprudence, and to attach with them is not condemnable as differences in peripheral issue is Rahmat, and Mujtahedin are to be prised even in differences and to get reward for Ijtahad.
"All are children of Imam Abu Haneefa in matter of Jurisprudence"
