WOMEN’S ‘tablighi’ JOURNEYS IN CONFLICT WITH THE QUR’AAN
Is it permissible for women to participate in the women’s tabligh journeys of the Tabligh Jamaat? I am in confusion in this regard. I have heard conflicting views. Please provide the guidance of the Shariah.
It is not permissible. It is haraam for women to leave their homes to undertake journeys for the type of tabligh of the Tabligh Jamaat. The Tabligh Jamaat is in grievous error in this regard. The Tabligh Jamaat has strayed far, very far from Siraatul Mustaqeem by luring women out of their homes into the public domain to become involved in such tabligh which is not Waajib on even males. Iblees has adorned his inspiration which has duped and misguided the Tabligh Jamaat.
Whilst the specific tabligh activity of the Tabligh Jamaat is permissible if maintained within the confines of the Shariah, the permissibility relates to only males – to such males who are able to make adequate Shar’i arrangements for their families during their absence. It is abominable and haraam for men to simply strand their families without proper arrangements for their care, and rush off on an excursion which they mistakenly believe is in “the path of Allah”. Abandonment of a Waajib responsibility for a permissible act will not be in the path of Allah. Within the parameters of the Shariah, the Tabligh Jamaat activity will be permissible for males, but for women, it is haraam to emerge into the public for an activity for which they have no Shar’i role and for which there is no Shar’i demand on them.
The Tablighi leaders are extremely short-sighted in this matter. They have opened an extremely wide avenue for fitnah and fasaad with their women’s groups. They are in diametric conflict with the Qur’aan Majeed which commands women to remain glued in their homes. Ungluing women from their homes is among the ghulu’ (haraam extremism) acts of the Tabligh Jamaat. It is precisely this haraam ghulu’ which has led to the massive split of the Tabligh Jamaat into two such hostile camps which are at each other’s throats.
A movement which slides into the pit of GHULU’ is on the road to become a baatil sect. If the Tabligh Jamaat does not set its house in order to conform to the Shariah in every aspect, it will then most assuredly join the 72 deviant sects mentioned by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).
Shaitaan is using the Tabligh Jamaat to aid the women’s liberation movement initiated by the Western Kuffaar. The Tablighis have fallen into this trap of Iblees. It should be remembered that Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) described women as Habaailush Shaitaan (the Traps of Shaitaan). When women emerge from their homes, Shaitaan lies in ambush and the consequence is great fitnah and fasaad on earth.
Be not deceived by the outward façade of ‘purdah’ of these tablighi females. They are generally audacious. Their hearts are bereft of genuine purdah. In fact, their niqaabs and burqahs have become licences for parading and prowling in the public domain.
The Tabligh Jamaat has taught them the lesson of disobeying their husbands. The Tablighis regard their specific methodology and their ‘khurooj’ to have greater importance and more significance than obedience to the husband. Thus, these women will abandon their Waajib home duties and even the rights (huqooq) of their husbands to be punctual and regular in their misguided ‘tabligh’ even locally.
Women are not in the ‘path of Allah’ when they emerge from their homes in flagrant violation of Allah’s prohibition. They dwell under gross deception – a deception into which the tablighi misguided molvis have cast them. Allah Ta’ala has cast women in the role of the home. This is their ONLY Waajib obligation of primary importance. It is this Waajib role which the Tabligh Jamaat has negated and abolished in a haraam manner. So vile is this haraam concept of the Tabligh Jamaat that even women travelling without mahrams are encouraged to participate in an activity which Islam has never imposed on them.
This tabligh is nugatory of the natural, divinely created role of women. The consequence of acting in violation of the Shariah is massive fitnah and fasaad.
We have discussed this topic in detail in two books:
1) The Way of Evils in The Groups of Female Expressionists
2) The Status of the Makshufaat Jamaat
Every baatil argument of the Tablghi Jamaat has been discussed and refuted in these books. Their arguments are all spurious, deceptive and baseless. These books are available. Write for your copies.
