the thing is bro to get the gist from the akabir who sit at Markaz Nizamuddin..
on my last visit this year and before that i heared Hazrat Maulana Ibrahim sahab dewla (db) stress a lot to avoid quoting blindly Tableeghi elders.. speaking loosely and attributing things they never said..
" Kahte hain humare badon ne ye kaha.. badon se ye suna.." " are ye kahaan ke bade.. kaunse bade.."
" baat pakki dekhi hai to hawale se kaho..warna khamosh raho.."
( They say our elders have said this and that.. who are these elders.. if you have read something then quote it with reference.. orelse remain quite..)
Tableegh is the place where one builds his relationship with his creator.. calling others to the one and only Master of the Universe..
and the beauty is there are people of varied intellectual.. social..educational.. racial.. cultural and spiritual standing.. and to learn u have to go back to the Ulema and Mashaikh..
There should be a reason when Mufakkir e Islam Hazrat Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi sahab at his final Khutbah of Nadwatul ulema stressed that..
" Meri aap se aakhri guzarish hai ke Hazrat Maulana Thanvi
ke khutbaat ko zaroor apne muta'le me rakhen.."
( finally my last request to you is to keep the Khutbaat of Hazrat Thanvi (rah) in ur study)
reading the khutbaat opens up the mind.. shows us where we stand..how nafs and shaytan plays with us.. he wasnt Hakeem ul Ummat for no reason.. even Hazrat Maulana Ilyas sahab urged the people to study his books..
sorry to say.. but ur local Ameer sahab is not a substitute for that..
and to shock u a little.. there was a thread where some brother spoke of batil forces infiltrating Tableegh..
i shall not quote the Markaz Elder or any further.. but it is true.. so be cautious in jamaat when with total strangers..
sorry again dear bhai Ahmed.. and do make dua for me as i need it the most..
