Concerning the Jamaa'atut-Tableegh in Saudi Arabia

What is your statement concerning the Jamaa’atut-Tableegh, which is in Saudi Arabia. And how does one deal with them?

The Jamaa’atut-Tableegh in Saudi Arabia and within other than it, then all of them are the same, there is no difference.

And if that is not the case, then it certainly holds allegiance for them. So this is a violation of its eemaan. So is it permissible for anyone – in Saudi Arabia or in Indonesia – who claims to be upon the Sunnah to have any allegiance towards these foolish grave-worshippers? It is not permissible in any situation from amongst the situations.

So it is not permissible to have an allegiance towards the Jamaa’atut-Tableegh. And it is not permissible to have an allegiance towards the people of innovations and desires. And it is not permissible to go out with them, nor to sit with them.

And it has already been revealed to you in the Book that when you hear the aayaat of Allaah being denied and mocked, then do not sit with them, until they delve into another topic, or else you would be like them.” [Sooratun-Nisaa‘ 4:140]

It is not permissible to have an allegiance towards them. And our Shaykh, al-’Allaamah, the sword of the Sunnah in these ages, Shaykh Hamood at-Tuwayjiree (d.1413H) – rahmatullaahi ’alayhi – has a clear, sufficient, satisfactory and adequate book concerning this, so let him refer to it.

So the conclusion is that it is not permissible to have any allegiance towards them. And those of them who are within Saudi Arabia, if they do not have anything more than an allegiance for them, then this is sufficient.
