بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

The very name of this blog has been chosen from the name of late Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz ibn baz- May Allah shower mercy on him and let his soul rest in the eternal bliss. The Muslim world in the last century witnessed the emergence of numerous scholars and reformers whose thoughts and guidelines reformed a great mass of Muslim population. One of the great Scholar was Moulana Muhammad Ilyas Kandhalavi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) whose thought and fikr sent a wave of spiritual awakening among the Muslim Ummah. The effort was later labeled by others as Tabligh Jamaat, meaning the group who conveys the message of Islam. It started in the poorly region of Nizamuddin in the old Delhi among Mewati people who were from nearby state of Hariyana. Those men later became the carriers and flag bearers of this noble task. The group started a movement through the Indian Sub-continents and then to the Middle East through the Gulf and now the effort has reached almost all corners of the world. Thousands, millions or billions were the people who were guided by the simple message of Moulana Ilyas (R.A) ‘ O Muslims, be Muslims’. That’s the slogan of Tabligh then and now.

At the time of Moulana Yusuf Kandalavi (R.A) the second Amir of Tabligh Jamaat and who is also the author of the book ‘Hayathul Sahaba’ ‘The lives of the Companions’ and many other great Islamic book. During his time, effort was done to reach the work of Tabligh among the Arabs. He believed that Arabs were its true carriers once upon in the history of Islam. The Sahaba (R.A) carried well their responsibilities of conveying the message of truth. They traveled the east and west of the globe and through sacrifice and many hardships. Because of them we are Muslims. Now once Arabs understand the very basic of the work of their ancestors, they would surely spend their time for Tabligh. Hence the Jamaats were sent at times of Hajj and focusing Makkah and Madina. The message of the efforts of Sahaba (R.A) which Muslim Ummah has almost forgotten it’s responsiblities were reminded. Tabligh became widely accepted, lots of Jamaat started to emerge from the Arab lands and specially Saudi Arabia.

Tabligh Jamaat then became a matter of discussion among the Arab scholars and non-arabs as well. A Detailed study was done over them and their actions and beliefs. So here in the following pages I would like to mention what I have learned were the saying of greater scholars which Saudi Arabia has witnessed in the last decades – Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Baz and Sheikh Salih Uthaimeen, May Allah shower mercy on both of them and all those scholars of Islam and what many prominent scholars of Islam has said about this noble effort.
