WOMEN’S TABLIGH JAMAAT AND THE FATWA OF THE HEADQUARTERS

QUESTION
PROPONENTS OF THE TABLIGH JAMAAT’S WOMEN’S WING ARE CRITICIZING, ALBEIT INDIRECTLY, THE FATWA ISSUED AGAINST WOMEN’S TABLIGH JAMAAT BY DARUL IFTA OF DARUL ULOOM DEOBAND. THEY HAVE CITED SEVERAL SENIOR ULAMA’S PRO-WOMEN’S TABLIGH VIEWS. WHAT IS THE RESPONSE TO SUCH VIEWS WHICH FAVOUR THE TABLIGH JAMAAT’S WIOMEN’S WING?

ANSWER

INSHA’ALLAH, AN ADEQUATE RESPONSE SHALL FOLLOW IN DUE COURSE AT OUR LEISURE. WE ARE WAITING FOR THE PROPONENTS OF THE MAKSHUFAAT JAMAAT TO FIRST EMPTY THEIR MAGAZINE OF ‘DALAA-IL’. ONCE THEY HAVE EMPTIED THEIR MAGAZINE, WE SHALL, IN OUR OWN TIME ISSUE THE RULING OF THE SHARIAH WHICH THE FATWA OF OUR HEADQUARTERS – DARUL ULOOM DEOBAND – ESCONCES.

HITHERTO, THE PROPONENTS OF THE MAKSHUFAAT JAMAAT ARE FIRING ONLY BLANKS – OPINIONS BEREFT OF SHAR’I DALAA-IL. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE CONCERNED OVER THE SOUND AND FURY OF THE BLANK SHOTS. THE RULING ISSUED BY HEADQUARTERS IS CLEAR AND EMPHATIC, NAMELY, WOMEN’S TABLIGH JAMAAT IS NOT PERMISSIBLE.

“AND, SALAAM ON THOSE WHO FOLLOW HIDAAYAT”
