Benefit: Answering the Claim, "The Caller (Dāʿī) Is Better Than the Scholar"

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh ʿUbayd al-Jābirīcomments on the verse below, clarifying an existing doubt:

شَهِدَ اللَّهُ أَنَّهُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ وَالْمَلَائِكَةُ وَأُولُو الْعِلْمِ قَائِمًا بِالْقِسْطِ ۚ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْحَكِيمُ
Allāh bears witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Him; and likewise, the angels and the people of knowledge bear witness: He who maintains justice, none has the right to be worshipped but Him, the All Mighty, the All Wise.[Sūrah al-ʿImrān, 3:18]

Present in this verse is a refutation of some of those who ascribe to the daʾwah, who say: The caller (dāʿī) is better than the scholar. They use the argument that the caller is like the rain cloud, travelling from place to place, everyone benefits from it [i.e. the rain]. While the scholar is like a well, no one drinks from it except those who travel to it. Glorified is Allāh the Exalted! Are they more knowledgeable or Allāh? Who are the ones who testify to the oneness of Allāh [in this verse], the scholar or the caller? The scholar! Who are the inheritors of the prophets? The scholars, or the callers who travel from place to place? Some of them [i.e. callers] are not even able to recite Sūrah al-Fātiḥah correctly and do not know the pillars of Islām. Corrupt reasoning and misinterpetation of the speech of Allāh and His Messenger (ṣallá Allāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) is the way of the people of innovation and desires; so be warned.

Callers at the Gates of Hell

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān

A noteworthy collection of fatāwá from al-ʿAllāmah, Ṣāliḥ ibn Fawzān al-Fawzān establishing the guidelines with regards to how one deals with the various duʿāt (callers) along with offering the prophetic guidance which foretold of callers at the gates of Hell calling the people to misguidance and a grievous torment. Towards the end, there are also fatāwá with regards to the world famous Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh and their station in the field of daʿwah.

Profound Words Concerning Groups and Parties

  Shaykh Ṣāliḥ al-Fawzān

Establishing the fact that every group that opposes Salafīyyah in any aspect of the Religion is from the seventy-two sects that are destroyed, and every individual who opposes Salafīyyah in any aspect of the Religion is upon misguidance.

Questions Answered on Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh

  al-ʿAllāmah ʿUbayd ibn ʿAbdullāh al-Jābirī

A grand expose of the extremely partisan, neo-ṣūfī group known as ‘Jamāʿat al-Tablīgh’. The noble Shaykh, ʿUbayd al-Jābirī answers several questions about the Indian origin group, their ʿaqīdah, manhaj, roots and goals. The answers illustrate the extremely ḥizbī nature of this group, their abomination of ‘al-daʿwah ill-Allāh’, destruction of the term ‘fī-sabīl Allāh’, corruption of the concept of tawḥīd, abandonment of the manhaj al-anbiyāʾ, deep roots in Ṣūfiyyah and foolish content with being attached to the party, devoid of seeking knowledge.

The Decisive Word Concerning Mutual Cooperation

   

A much-needed response to Ṣurūrī/Quṭbī propaganda of working with groups such as Jamāʿah al-Tablīgh and al-Ikhwān al-Muslimīn.
