The Blind Ignorance of al-Jamāʾah al-Tablīgh

Al-ʿAllāmah Ḥammūd al-Tuwayjirī

A brief word on the blind following of innovatory practices within al-Jamāʾah al-Tablīgh.

Al-Shaykh Ḥammūd al-Tuwayjirī said [relating from Al-Shaykh Ṣayf al-Raḥmān ibn Aḥmad]:

“It is indeed a true statement that the Jews of this ummah are the Shīʿah, and that the Jews [of those who ascribe themselves to the] Sunnah are the ones who blindly copy and imitate [their religious leaders]. Especially the likes of the Tablīghiyyīn, who strive in the spread of ignorance, blind imitation, and worshipping of their leaders, glorifying them and being obedient to them. They spread bidʿah among the Muslims. They [try to] obligate upon Muslims that which Allāh has not made obligatory. They prescribe for them that which Allāh and his messenger (ﷺ) has not prescribed.

The Prophet [ﷺ] said:

‘Whoever has respect for a companion of innovation, he has indeed aided in the destruction of Islām’.

And he [ﷺ] also said:

’Allāh has prevented the tawbah of every companion of innovation’. (ṣaḥīḥ al-jāmiʿ al-ṣaghīr)

Al-Shaykh Ḥammūd continued: “The latter ḥadīth is authentic. As for the former, it was mentioned [by Shaykh al-Albānī] among the weak aḥādīth. However, a similar narration [has reached us] from al-Fuḍayl ibn ʿIyāḍ.”
