Jamaah Tablighi jamaat, jamaah dakwah, jamaah kompor, kafilah dakwah whatever people say (Urdu: تبلیغیجماعت, Tablīg͟hī Jamā‘at; Arabic: جماعةالتبليغ, Jamā‘at at-Tablīgh; Bengali: তাবলীগজামাত; Hindi: तबलीगीजमात; English: Society for spreading faith) is an Islamic religious movement based on the principle of the “Work of the Prophets” inviting to God in the manner of The Noblest Prophet Muhammad PBUH/PEACE BE UPON HIM. The movement was started in 1926 by Muhammad Ilyas al-Kandhlawi in India,which was dream of his teacher Moulana Rasheed Ahmad Gangohi. It primarily aims at Tablighi spiritual reformation by working at the grass roots level, reaching out to Muslims across all social and economic spectra to bring them closer to Islam.
Tablighi Jamaat came forth as an offshoot of the Deobandi movement. Its inception is believed to be a response to the deteriorating values and negligence of fundamental aspects of Islam, which were considered a threat to Muslims. It gradually expanded from local to national to an international movement and now has over 10 Million followers in over 200 countries.
Tablighi Jamaat maintains a non-affiliating stature in matters of politics and fiqh (jurisprudence). Although Tabligh Jamaat emerged from the Deobandi sub-school in the Hanafi fiqh, no particular interpretation of Islam has been endorsed since the beginning of the movement since the Quran and Hadith from which various denominations derive their authority and sanctity is one and immutable. Tabligh Jamaat has largely avoided electronic media and has emphasised a personal communication for proselytising. The teachings of Tabligh Jamaat are mainly basic in approach and the Six Principles put forward by Muhammad Ilyas influence most of their teachings.
