I have spent very little time in Jamaat but had the opportunity to listen and learn from the great Akabir of Nizaumuddin & Raiwind (in public and in private) and I would like to share some personal advice given to me by Mashaykh.
1) BUSINESS: You have to make Tableegh your “Business” and only then you can devise and use the correct tactics as your “Business” is to:
b. If you can’t sell at least raise the curiosity and interest
Of those who are not interested in the product (i.e. the Deen). You efforts should raise the interest "at least a notch" in the Deen of Allah (SWT) of everyone you do Tableegh to.
The ideas are from Akabir of Tableeghi Jamaat discussed and detailed in "Khas Jodhs" or "old workers Ijtemaas" but the wording is mine as I can't remember the exact Urdu at the moment.
In the next posts will follow 3 real life examples of Ulama & Mashaykh actually carrying this out which helped me understand what they actually mean.
P.S: This isn't a Tableeghi Jamaat bashing thread and if you disagree with Jamaat you are under no obliation to read or comment and requested not to derail the subject.
