"Fazilatus SheikhSyed Abul Hasan Ali Nadvi Rahimullah said...........
The Tabligh movement is ideally suited to meet the demand of time and repel the mounting challenge ofdisbelieve and irreligiousness. The present day materialists and Baatil movements make a direct appeal to the common masses and sedulously sow the seed of doubts among them.Ideological debates religious literature and plans and activities that are confined to the elite and do not involve the common man cannot arrest the progress of apostasy and materialism. Only a religious movement which begins at their grassroot and goes straight to the labourers cottage and farmer field and ignores no section of the society can provide an effective answer to the menace of irreligiousness.
