Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem wa salaatu was salaam ‘alaan nabiyyinaa Muhammad,
A brother, may Allah reward him, gave me this book long ago when I was living in Philly. It’s by one of the scholars in Yemen, may Allah preserve him and all our upright ‘Ulama.
Question: In this passage he highlights one of the major mistakes of the Jamaatu Tabligh. What is their mistake? Can you read and understand it? If not can you ask someone to read it to you? Barakallaahu feekum.
When I entered Islaam over 20 years ago I began with the Jamaatu Tabligh. They were the predominant group in Georgia at that time. After 2 years of being a Muslim some of their mistakes became apparent to me and Allah continued to guide me towards the sunnah. But the mistake I just posted above was never clear to me until I read it in this book, recently. Allah is truly God and truly The Most Merciful.
As Sheikh Rabee’a ibn Haadee, may Allah have mercy upon him and give him strength, said to us in his home some years back in Makkah, “How long will you allow others to translate your religion for you?” This is why learning Arabic makes ALL the difference!
I have included the beginning of the book in PDF. Very nice read for us beginners in Arabic.
