The basic principle of the work of Tabligh is to correct ourself first, our own islah which is what gave it the success that we see today. I have seen amazing results. I hold the work of tabligh in very high regards because it is through the efforts of one tablighi brother that my entire family and extended family gave up ismailism and embraced islam Alhamdulillah. Every single member of my family is now actively involved in this work and I have seen amazing changes in people. Having experienced the transformation myself and closely seeing it in so many of my family members I was completely mesmerized with this effort.
However, these days I am seeing more and more people who are actively involved in tabligh and sadly they are some of the most arrogant people I have met among muslims. This is not a generalization and one should not judge the whole community based on these few. But the problem is I have come across many such people and also heard from other people who have experienced the same problem. The work that is supposed to make one humble is actually doing the opposite in some people.
Since I have seen the potential and efforts of the work of tabligh and how it has changed the lives so many including myself, such attitude is very upsetting and discouraging.
I request all the active Jamat workers to address this issue. It is humility that gave tabligh the success and if we turn to arrogance it will crumble it. Shaitan has seen how people are changing themselves through dawah work and there is nothing he can do about it, so he is using Takabbur as a weapon to try and weaken the efforts.
Takabbur in jamat work is a real problem and needs real solutions.
