Statements Of The Scholars Of The Sunnah Concerning The Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh
Author: Various Mashaykh
In the Name of Allaah, All-Compasssionate, All-Merciful
All Praise is for Allaah alone, and prayer and salutations upon the Messenger of Allaah and upon his family and companions and those who follow his guidance. As what follows/to proceed:
Some papers reached me containing statements of the two noble Allaamahs’ Shaykh Ibn Baaz and Shaykh Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen which the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh circulate amongst the ignorant and those who do not know the reality of their false manhaj and ‘aqeedah.
And the reality is that the statements of the two Shaykhs supports them.
So the statement of Shaykh Ibn Baaz is based upon a report from a Tableeghee man, or one who is sympathetic to them, which was narrated to Shaykh Ibn Baaz contrary to that which they are upon and depicted them contrary to their true nature, and confirms that which we say the statement of Shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah):
"…and no doubt, certainly the people are in severe need of such good meetings gathering upon the remembrance of Allaah and inviting to holding steadfast to Islaam and applying it’s teachings and ridding the Tawheed (of Allaah) of (all) innovations and superstitions..." [see his fatwa, reference number 1007, dated 17/08/1407 A.H which the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh now circulate]
So this (fatwa) suggests that the narrator mentioned in his report that certainly that this Jamaa’ah calls to holding steadfast to Islaam, applying it’s teachings and ridding the Tawheed (of Allaah) of (all) innovations and superstitions. So, as a result, the Shaykh has praised them.
And if the narrator of the report spoke the truth and depicted them upon their reality and explained the truth of their false manhaj, then we would not have seen from Imaam Ibn Baaz, the monotheist, except impugnation towards them and warning against them and their innovations,as he had done in the last fatwa regarding them attached to this one (above).
And in the statement of Allaamah Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen as to that which supports them, refer to his statement as follows:
"Remark: If the difference (of opinion) is in ‘aqeedah issues, then it is obligatory to correct (this) and that which opposes the way of the Pious Predecessors. For indeed, it is obligatory to detest it and warn those who tread (the path of) that which opposes the methodology of the Pious Predecessors in this aspect." [See Fataawa Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen - Volume 2, Page 939-944, similar to that which the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh distribute]
And no doubt the difference of opinion amongst the scholars, the Ahlus-Sunnah wat-Tawheed and the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh is an extreme and profound difference in ‘aqeedah and manhaj.
For they are upon the way of the Maatureediyyah, those who have innovated in the attributes of Allaah and who are from the Soofiyyah in their worship and manners, giving the oath of allegiance and from that, these sects uphold (the belief) in al-Hulool and Wahdatil-Wujood and shirk with the graves and other than that from (their) falsehood.
And without a doubt the noble Shaykh Ibn al-‘Uthaymeen does not know, and if he were to know thisabout them, then certainly he would have denounced them for the falsehood (upon which they are on) and would have severely warned against them. He would certainly have trodden the noble path with them just as both his Shaykhs, Imaam Muhammed Ibn Ibraaheem and Imaam Ibn Baaz had done. And just as Shaykh al-Albaanee, Shaykh ‘Abdur-Razzaaq ‘Afeefee, Shaykh Fowzaan, Shaykh Hamood at-Tuwayjaree, Shaykh Taqqee ad-Deen al-Hilaalee, Shaykh Sa’d al-Husayn, Shaykh Sayf ar-Rahmaan, Shaykh Muhammed Aslam had (all) done with their great publications, which clarified the falsehood of the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh and their danger and that which they are upon in their false ‘aqeedah and manhaj so the serious student of knowledge should refer to them.
And Shaykh ‘Abdur-Rahmaan al-Misree reverted (back) from having written in praise of the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh and he admitted his mistakes to me.
As for Yoosuf al-Malaahee, then he is amongst those who spent many years with them, then wrote a book about them which explained their falsehood and corrupt ‘aqeedah, then sadly he reverted back from the truth and then wrote another book about them. His first book assists him and that which the scholars of manhaj wrote about them refutes his falsehood; and the (most) important rule is (in the science of al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel) is that al-Jarh takes precedence over and above at-Ta’deel. So it nullifies all praise from anyone, even if the Tableeghees uphold the correct Islaamic rules (teachings) and trod the path of the people of knowledge and advice for Islaam and the Muslims.
