The Shaykh (may Allāh have mercy on him) was asked concerning the Khurūj (going out) of Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh to remind the people about the greatness of Allāh.

The Shaykh Responded by saying: “The reality is that they are corrupt innovators and they are people upon the ways of the Qādiriyyah (a Sufī tarīqah) and other than them. And their making Khurūj is not in the path of Allāh, rather it is in the path of Ilyās (the founder or Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh). They do not call to the Qur’ān and the Sunnah. Rather they call to Ilyās, their Shaykh in Bangladesh. And as for the Khurūj for the purpose of Da’wah, and it is the Khurūj in the path of Allāh and this is not the Khurūj of the Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh. And I know the Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh of the past, and they are innovators wherever they are, whether it be Egypt, Israel, America, or Saudi Arabia. And they are connected to their Shaykh Ilyās.”
