Assalamu alaikum brothers,

I am starting this thread depicting a sad story.

In Japan, some people wanted to become Muslims. They went to a Muslim organization in Tokyo to accept Islam. There were two different type of Muslims, Indians who followed Hanafi majhab and Indonesians who followed Shafi'i Majhab. As we all know, every Muslim feels lucky if any disbeliever accepts Islam in his hand. But when those Japanese people went to the office, the so called muqallids(blind followers of Mujtahid  Imams) said them that following a majhab is obligatory in Islam. The Indians told them to accept Hanafi majhab and the Indonesians told them to accept Shafi'i majhab. The people who wanted to accept Islam became confused and this division among Muslims became a great bane in their path to guidance.

It is a very important thing that when we call anyone to Islam, we must call them to follow Quran and Sunnah. It is a sad thing that Muslims are divided now in the name of majhabs and they are calling the people to their own majhab instead of calling to Islam. I'll write more later.

May Allah show us the path of righteousness.

Assalamu alaikum dear brothers,

I guess you know about 'Tablig Jam'at', a dawah activity for muslims worldwide. If you don't, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tablighi_Jamaat. There are many confusions about their activities. From one point of view, their activities seem to be Bida't. But from another point of view, they seem to be alright.

For example, they travel from one mosque to another, and sometimes the mosques are situated far away from one another. This seems to contradict the following hadiths:

Narrated Quza'a: I heard Abu Sa`id saying four words. He said, "I heard the
Prophet (saying the following narrative)." He had participated in twelve holy battles with the Prophet. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al−Masjid−AI−Haram, the Mosque of Allah's Apostle , and the Mosque of Al−Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem)."
(Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2, 281)

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported it directly from Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) that he said: Do not undertake journey but to three mosques: this mosque of mine, the Mosque of al−Haram and the Mosque of Aqsa (Bait al−Maqdis). (Sahih Muslim, Vol. 2, 3218)

Abu Basra Al-Gifari (R) met Abu Huraira (R) in his way while he was returning from a travel. Then Abu Huraira (R) asked him from where he was returning. Abu Basra (R) replied that he had prayed at At-Tur and was returning. Hearing this, Abu Huraira (R) said, ' If you had met me before you started, because I heard Messenger of Allah saying: "Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al−Masjid−AI−Haram, the Mosque of Allah's Apostle , and the Mosque of Al−Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem)."  (Ahmad)

POSSIBLE EXPLANATION

The Hadiths prohibit setting out for mosque if one has the intention for virtue (through Salat). But the people of Tablig don't do this for Salat but for Daw'ah. This may say that their traveling from one mosque to another distant one is alright.

Can someone knowledgeable please make this clear? And please don't think that I am against Tablig. I am neither with them nor against them. I am neutral here and just want to clear my confusion. So please be neutral too, dear brothers.

And this is not my only question about them. After clarifying this one, InshAllah I will post more questions about Tablig Jam'at in this thread.

Waiting for your replies.

And Allah knows best.........

Abu Abdullah
