The Efforts of Deen

Allah has made the Jamaat (effort) of Dawah & Tabligh a means of of connecting to the Deen. The resemblance of the Jamaat of Tabligh is as mentioned in a Hadith, that Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam's generosity in the month of Ramadhan was like:

(الريح المرسلة) -

i.e., that wind which blows over the clouds and moves the clouds by the command of Allah Ta’ala to different places that it may fall in those areas, whereby the land (vegetation) may come alive again. The similitude of the generosity of Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam was not made comparable to a dam, sea or a river because you would need to go to it to benefit as it does not come to anyone. It flows on its route only.

The resemblance was given to clouds due to clouds moving to different places and raining (giving benefit). Similarly, in the efforts of Deen, the Tabligh Jamaat have a similar approach. Whether people come to them or not, they go to people. They go out to do special visits and general visits, they have general gatherings and special gatherings. Day and night they have the concern for people, and people are benefiting.

In those countries where Tabligh work is active, the youth have a religious connection, and in those countries where this is not found, the youth are far from the Deen. Especially in this era of social media where the youth are engrossed in it day and night, to take them out of this (social media) is quite difficult, however, Allah Ta’ala has placed blessings in this effort and due to these blessings people are coming to the work.

Even those ‘Sheikhs’ who studied in Madinah Munawwarah and the Arab countries acknowledge that Allah Ta’ala has used the Jamaat to bring the youth and masses to the Masjids as Hazrat Mufti Sahib mentioned a Karguzari of his visit to Switzerland in this regard…  

The method of our elders was such that after going in Jamaat, they would also make the Dhikr of Allah Ta’ala. Hazrat Moulana Ilyaas Sahib R.A., Hazrat Moulana Yusuf Sahib R.A. and Hazrat Moulana Inaamul Hasan Sahib R.A. all were connected to Dhikr.
Dhikr and Jamaat are both the efforts of our elders.

It has been written about عبدالله ذوالبجادين, he was an orphan, his uncle and mother looked after him. Allah Ta’ala placed Imaan into his heart and he accepted Islam. No sooner does he accept Islam that his uncle’s love for him turned into hatred. His uncle said: “I gave you these clothes so return them to me”, but a mother still has that motherly love. She breaks a piece of cloth into two pieces and gives it to him, so that he may use it to cover his lower and upper body. That is why he was named ذو البجادين, because بجادًا means a shawl. In this manner he reached Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam.

The call was made for the expedition of Tabook in the 9th of Hijrah, it was a difficult call. In the hot months with the trees bearing fruit and a very long distance to travel, Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam diverted from the usual method of concealing the destination due to the aforementioned circumstances and made the destination known ahead of time, so that people may prepare ahead of time.

In that time Tabook was part of Shaam which comprised parts of Turkey, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Beirut and Iraq. When Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam reached Tabook, a few days later Abdullah Thul Bijadatain Radhiallahu Anhu passed away. Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam' shrouded his body personally, which was a great honour for him.

Abdullah bin Masood Radhiallahu Anhu mentioned that how we wished we were in place of that Sahabi, that Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam could lower us into the grave. The burial took place at night and lanterns were lit… After his burial, Rasulullah Sallallahu Allaihi Wasallam mentioned regarding him that he was that person:

[ كان يرفع صوته بذكر  - He would raise his voice whilst remembering (Allah)]…

His burial was carried out by Rasulullah Sallallahu  Allaihi Wasallam and this was due to the blessings of Dhikr.

Thus, Dhikr, Jamaat and Taalim are all the efforts of our Elders…

May Allah grant us all the ability to practice on all these avenues of Deen and reward our Elders for guiding us in this regard.
