The Shaykh was asked: O eminent Shaykh, here we have newly invented groups, the Jamaah al-Ikhwaan (al-Muslimeen) and the Jamaat at-Tableegh and other than them. Are these groups from Ahlus Sunnah and what is your advice regarding this subject?
So the Shaykh said: These differing groups are newly invented, firstly. They are newly invented, their origins being in the 14th century (AH). And prior to the 14th century, they were not present and they had not originated; they did not exist.
As for the correct methodology and the straight path, then its birth and its origin are from the sending of the Noble Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم). The path which the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم).and his Companions were upon since he was sent.
So whoever followed this, this truth and this guidance, then they are saved and victorious.
And whoever strays from this (path), has deviated to this sect or that group, thinking that they have with them some good and they have with them some mistakes.
But their mistakes are huge and tremendous so be warned about them and protect yourself by following the Jamaah, who are Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaah and they are upon the methodology of the Salaf (pious predecessors) of this Ummah. And they are dependant upon them (the Salaf) for what has been brought regarding Allaah and His Messenger (عليه السلام).
And (Ahlus Sunnah are) not dependant on the matters that came from fulaan (so and so) and fulaan (so and so) and upon the ways and the methodologies that were invented in the 14th century of the Hijraah. And these groups, or these two groups that were pointed out, they came about in the 14th century upon a way or upon a methodology that is well known.
As for Jamaat at-Tableegh, they have with them matters of evil, firstly. And it is a newly invented methodology. It originated in Delhi, and it did not originate in Makkah or in Madeenah. And its spring and its origin is in Delhi in India. And from what is know about India is that it is full of superstitions and full of innovations. Even though, there are many people from Ahlus Sunnah there, and they are upon the Sunnah and the correct way. For example the group Ahlul Hadeeth, those who are the best of people in this land.
The Shaykh also said: And the founders (of Jamaat at-Tableegh) are from the people of innovations and from the people who follow the ways of the Soofiyyah and they are deviated in aqeedah so it is a newly invented innovation found in this land. And it depends on these matters that have been established by its founders for this way. And they (the founders) are deviated in their aqeedah and in their methodology as well. They have with them aspects of Soofiyyah and aspects of Ashariyyah, those who are not upon the methodology of Ahlus Sunnah wal-Jamaah. Not in their aqeedah and not in their behavior.

Question and Answer Session with Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree on the Deviated Sect Jammat-ut-Tabligh:
The full audio which includes the Arabic and English Translation can be downloaded from:
A grand expose of the extremely partisan, neo-soofee group known as ‘Jama’aatut-Tableegh’. The noble Shaykh, ‘Ubayd al-Jaabiree answers several questions about the Indian based group, their ‘aqeedah, manhaj, roots and goals. The answers illustrate the extremely hizbee nature of this group, their abomination of ‘ad-da’wah ilallaah’, destruction of the term ‘fee sabeelillaah’, corruption of the concept of tawheed, abandonment of the manhajul-anbiyaa’, deep roots in soofiyyah and foolish contempt with being attached to the party, devoid of seeking knowledge.
[Q1]: I am a youth who Allaah has guided at the hands of a few brothers. I travelled with them (jama’aatut-tableegh) for three days to Qatar. Then it was said to me by a student of knowledge that this type of action is not from the sunnah and is a bid’ah. So if a person goes out, for the sake of Allaah, for tableegh, is this a bid’ah?
[Q2]: Is this expression correct, ‘we are requested to strive and work, the guidance comes for Allaah, you move and work here and the guidance will descend, it might descend in America, it might descend in India, here, there or anywhere. The Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) moved and worked in Makkah and guidance descended in Madinah.’ Is the expression correct?
[Q3]: What is the true understanding of the saying of Allaah, ‘And have Taqwaa of Allaah and Allaah will teach you’?
[Q4]: Did the Messenger (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) go out for 4 months, 30 days or 3 days? What is the authenticity of the narration of ‘Umar (radiyallaahu anhu), ‘Why didn’t you complete 40 days’?
[Q5]: We went to Pakistan (with jama’aatut-tableegh) and we entered a braylawee (extremist soofee group) masjid and remained for 4 days praying behind a braylawee, our ameer knew that he was a braylawee. Then it was made clear to me after some time that the braylawiyyoon are mushrikoon. [The Shaykh interrupts stating, ‘I think your question is whether your salaat is valid]
[Q6]: What is the ruling of the one who interprets all of the ayaat on jihaad as being specific to jihaad of speech only?
[Q7]: Some ‘ulamaa generalise about some groups, and from them, jama’aatut-tableegh, that they are firaq (sects) and not jamaa’aat (groups) because the jamaa’ah is what the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his sahaabah were upon?
[Q8]: Is it affirmed that some youth from this country (Saudi Arabia) pledge allegiance to In’aamul-Hasan (modern-day leader of firqatut-tableegh) upon the Rubik chain of soofiyyah in India?
[Q9]: Some of the leaders of jama’aatut-tableegh in this country, when asked, ‘Why were graves entered in this centre for jama’aatut-tableegh in India’. They reply, ‘The people of India entered graves into the masjid in order to close the doors to shirk so that the people would not go to the cemetery and seek waseela to Allaah through the graves.’
[Q10]: They take as proof O Shaykh, and they say, ‘you placed this involvement upon us (the presence of graves at the main centre of the jama’aatut-tableegh in India), the grave of the Prophet (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is in the masjid in Madinah’. What do you say about this O Shaykh?
[Q11]: Some youth from this country (Saudi Arabia) spend various means to travel to the gulf and India, however money is not spent to travel to the ‘ulamaa of this country, and they act as if the ‘ulamaa of this land do not make da’wah. They describe the ‘ulamaa as ‘slaves of the dunyaa’. What do you say about this O Shaykh?
[Q12]: The ones affiliated with the jama’aah from the sons of this country (Saudi Arabia), what is their ruling? Do they vary in their nearness to bid’ah or are they the same? And what is the ruling on going out to Qatar, Kuwait or Pakistan and what is the ruling on the local khurooj that they do within this country?
