    If by Jamat you are referring to going out with Jam'aat ut-Tableegh, then no he should not go.

    Jama'at Tableegh have with them severe errors in creed and innovations in worship. Their methodology of giving da'wah opposes fundamentally, the da'wah of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.


    With regards to "Jamat at-Tableegh" then they are a modern deviated group that have with them severe errors in creed and many innovated acts of worship. With regards to them, Shaikh Ahmad bin Yahyaa An-Najmee mentioned:



    They are a people that follow Muhammad Ilyaas, the founder of this Jamaa’ah.

    A biography of the founder: Muhammad Ilyaas was born in 1302H. He memorized the Qur’aan and read the Six Collections of Hadeeth. [2] He was upon the Deobandi methodology, taking the Hanafee madh-hab, the Ash’aree and Matureedee Creed and the Sufi way. They have four Sufi orders amongst them:

    1. The Naqshabandees

    2. The Sahroordees

    3. The Qaadirees, and

    4. The Jishtees

    Shaikh Muhammad Ilyaas gave the Sufi bay’ah (oath of allegiance) to Shaikh Rasheed Al-Kankoohee, who later became Shaikh Rasheed As-Saharanpuree. Then he renewed it with Shaikh Ahmad As-Saharanpuree who certified him to take oaths of allegiance. Muhammad Ilyaas would sit in detached isolation (khalwah) by the grave of Shaikh Nur Muhammad Al-Badaayunee, in what is known as the Jishtee Muraaqabah (self meditation). And he would go out to the grave of ‘Abdul-Qudoos Al-Kankoohee, the one who forced the ideology of wahdat-ul-wujood (the false belief that Allaah is inside His creation everywhere, including inside people!) [3] on him. He resided and taught in Delhi and passed away in 1363H.

    Circumstances that brought about the start of the movement:

    Shaikh Abul-Hasan An-Nadwee saw that Muhammad Ilyaas took refuge in this way of giving Da’wah when the ways of blind-following failed to rectify the people of his region. Shaikh Miyaan Muhammad Aslam quotes one of Ilyaas’ sayings that he received kashf (mystic disclosure or "revelation") to follow this way through a dream in which he was inspired with a new tafseer (interpretation) of Allaah’s saying: "You were the best nation brought out for mankind, commanding good and forbidding evil and believing in Allaah." [Surah Aali ‘Imraan: 110] And it was that going out (khurooj) to call people to the way of Allaah cannot be realized by staying in one place based on Allaah’s word "brought out" and that one’s Eemaan increases by going out in this khurooj based on Allaah’s saying: "and believing in Allaah" after having said: "brought out for mankind."

    The following can be noted from what has just been mentioned:

    1. The Qur’aan is not interpreted by makshoofaat (mystical disclosures), and by Sufi dreams, of which the majority of them, rather all of them come from the inspirations of the Devil.

    2. It is apparent from what was stated previously that the founder of this Jamaa’ah was engrossed in Sufism from head to toe. This is because he gave two oaths of allegiance on it and was tested by its false beliefs and because he would spend his time sitting by the graves of Sufis.

    3. The founder of this Jamaa’ah was a qubooree (grave worshipper) and a khuraafee. This is clear from his saying: "...and he would sit in detached isolation (khalwah) by the grave of Shaikh Nur Muhammad Al-Badaayunee." And concerning the second person, he mentioned that he forced the ideology of wahdat-ul-wujood on him. So his being attached to the grave of the one who forced the ideology of wahdat-ul-wujood on him is without doubt a clear proof that he held that same belief

    4. Those who believe in wahdat-ul-wujood claim that Allaah embodies Himself inside the attractive woman - and refuge is sought from Allaah! This is a matter that has reached the highest level of repulsiveness. May Allaah give them what they deserve of His curses and wrath!

    The methodology of the Jamaa’at-ut-Tableegh can be summarized in six issues or six principles or six characteristics:

    1. Actualizing the statement of Tawheed: "Laa Ilaaha Illaallaah Muhammadur Rasoolullaah" (There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah and Muhammad is His Messenger)

    2. Praying with full submissiveness and humility

    3. Knowledge of the Virtues (Fadaa’il) and not the Fiqh issues (Masaa’il) along with knowledge of dhikr

    4. Showing generosity to the Muslim

    5. Correcting the intention

    6. Calling to Allaah (i.e. Da’wah) and going out (i.e. khurooj) for that purpose in the Way of Allaah upon the tablighi manhaj.

    There is an objective behind each of these six principles or characteristics as well as a virtue to be attained. So for example the objective behind (Laa Ilaaha IllaAllaah) is to: "Eradicate the corrupted yaqeen (Certainty) from the heart while placing the correct and valid yaqeen into the Essence (dhaat) of Allaah." They really intend the belief of wahdat-ul-wujood with this.

    Point to be noted about Jamaa’at-ut-Tableegh:

    1. The founder of this Jamaa’ah was raised upon Sufism and gave two oaths of allegiance on it.

    2. He would position himself by graves, waiting to receive Kashf (Sufi mystical disclosure) and meditative ideas from the deceased inside them.

    3. He would perform the Jishtee Muraaqabah (self meditation) at the gravesite of ‘Abdul-Quddoos Al-Kankoohee, who used to believe in wahadat-ul-wujood.

    4. The Jishtee Muraaqabah is to sit by a grave for half an hour of every week, covering the face and reciting this dhikr: "Allaahu Haadiree, Allaahu Naadhiree." [4] This statement or this action if done sincerely for Allaah is an innovation. And if it is done for the person in the grave then it is committing Shirk with Allaah. And the last of the two is what is most evident.

    5. They have four of their graves located in the masjid from where their Da’wah emerged.

    6. The founder of this Jamaa’ah believed in Kashf.

    7. The founder of this Jamaa’ah was a grave worshipper.

    8. The Tablighis perform their worship with an innovated form of dhikr, done in the way of the Sufis. This is by splitting up the statement of Tawhheed (Laa Ilaaha IllaAllaah).

    9. Whoever cuts off the negation part of the Statement of Tawheed from its affirmation part intentionally, by saying "Laa Ilaaha" (only), then this necessitates the fact that he has committed disbelief. Shaikh Hamood At-Tuwayjiree stated this, quoting it from the scholars.

    10. They make it permissible to wear amulets that have on them mystical writings and names of unknown people, which probably are names of devils! And this is not permissible.


    [2] Translator’s Note: The hadeeth Collections of Al-Bukhaaree, Muslim, Abu Dawood, At-Tirmidhee, Ibn Maajah and Ahmad.

    [3] Translator’s Note: Wahdatul-Wujood is the belief that Creator (Allaah) and the Creation is one existence.

    [4] Translator’s Note: This has something with the meaning of "Allaah is my ever-Present Accompanier, Allaah is my Watcher"

    What brother Abu Harun wrote. The long answer. But I dont know if you mean just going to Jamaat or the group. From the thoughts many the group Tablique Jamat is no good.

    But I remember the Masjid I occasionally go to , some of these Jamaat guys are annoying. They never stop bugging me. And they only say Salam when they want you to go to Jamaat with them.

    Obey his Parents no matter what , Parent obedience is better than even Al-Jihad . If you are the only son [and you take care of your parents] and war flamed through the country , you're NOT allowed to join the army - you're better off with your parents [you get same Thawab In shaá Allah].

    Peace .

    p.s. I asked many Imams about the subject when I was young [when there was all these massacres in Palestine and I was aching to go] , they all -separately- told me the same lines accompanied by some Hadiths but I don't remember them - sorrowfully .

    Why aren't they letting him go? Jamaat is a religious journey, and you travel around in search of knowledge. It's very beneficial. He should go.

    I wish Ladies' Jamaats were frequent these days.

    --I thought Jamaat was just a spiritual journey? O_o Are there different types of Jamaats?

    He should obey his parents.

    If he obeys his parents knowing that it is a commandment of

    Allah, and therefore not go out on jamaat, although he would have liked to go, then he will get twice the reward, that is, the reward of obeying his parents and the reward of the good intention of going out for dawah. And Allah knows best.

    And do not pay attention to the disinformation and misinformation from anybody about tableegh.

    Why would you progression? countless countries in Europe have gay marriage legalized and it incredibly is in comparison to i've got suddenly taken the liking to grow to be gay because of the fact of it. I stay in the Netherlands 2 of my acquaintances are gay and that i actual do no longer care. i'm a muslim and could stay authentic to my values. only for the reason that guy or woman is gay, it would not propose he's no longer allowed to be married. he's only human isn't he? Ofcourse, i detect the belief completely disgusting and unusual, yet it incredibly is only my opinion and we would desire to continually no longer be those to decide. Allah (swt) will decide them for what did authentic and what they did incorrect. i'm no longer likely to pass out of a rustic only because of the fact some gay human beings stay there. We shouldn't decide on sexuality.

    Not sure what you mean by Jamaat.

    But if you mean the tableegh, then he doesn't have to go. He can be just as good of a Muslim at home with his family doing regular life and making dawa to the people around him.
