Review: Faza’il-e-A’maal


The Faza’il-e-A’maal was written by the world famous Shaikhul Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariya Kandhalvi (r.a.). An English translation of the title is Virtuous Deeds. The text consists of selected verses of the Qur’an, Ahadith, commentary thereon, and other material. It was originally written in Urdu but has been translated into English, Arabic, Persian, Bengali, and many other languages. It is particularly popular in Pakistan and India.

Faza’il-e-A’maal is a compilation of seven books and each book has been divided into several Chapters. The first part is ‘Stories of Sahabah’ which presents an account of the Companions of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.). In the foreword Shaikhul Hadith Sahab (r.a.) writes:

“The main idea underlying this behest was that Muslim mothers, while going to bed at night, instead of telling myths and fables to their children, may narrate to them such real and true tales of the golden age of Islam that would create in them an Islamic spirit of love and esteem for Sahabah, and thereby improve their ‘Imaan’; and the proposed book may, thus, be a useful substitute for the current story books.”

He concludes the book with a epilogue about the ‘Sahabah’s Virtues and Privileges’.

Other parts are about the ‘Virtues of The Holy Qur’an’, ‘Virtues of Salaat’ (prayers), ‘Virtues of Zikr’ (rememberance), ‘Virtues of Tableegh’ (calling to Islam) & ‘Virtues of Ramadhan’ (fasting). Qur’anic verses, selected Ahadith and intelligent still simple to understand commentary point out the great rewards of worships, which seek the pleasure of Allah, and are supposed to seed the love for good and righteous deeds in the heart of the reader.

The last book is a reasonable analysis of Maulana Ehtesham-ul-Hassan Kandhalvi (r.a.) titled as “Muslim degeneration and Its only Remedy”. He writes not only a detailed diagnosis of the Ummah’s disease but as well supplies the solution. Maulana Ehtesham-ul-Hassan Sahab (r.a.) concludes the summary with the following words:

“In these few pages, an analysis of the present situation and a practical solution for improving it has been given; in fact the solution is nothing else than the actual Islamic way of life, which belonged to our forefathers and early Muslims.”

Different people often critisize this book for containing weak Ahadith, but most of today’s Ulemas (scholars) agree upon that weak hadith naaration is allowed for teaching virtues of already establised practices in Islam. Overall this book is not only the perfect compilation for Taleem at your local mosque but as well at home. It’s a reminder of the Islamic obligations and encourages every single Muslim to seek the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala through righteous deeds.

  6. Abdul Malik says:

    Faza’il-e-A’maal is an excellent kitaab, millions of muslims throughout the world are benefitting from its contents.

    Hazart Sheikh has started all his books with ayats of quraan, followed by hadith and examples from the lives of pious people. When it suits the salafi’s they also quote the likes of Ibn Hajar, Mulla Ali Qari, etc.

    Hazart Sheikh himeself wrote the answers to novice’s who critise his kitaabs. The book can be found on the internet.

    It is a book for virtues, which has lead to dramtic increase and changes in the lives of millions throughout the world. Salafi non salafi alike.

    The kitaab represents the aqeeda of the ahle sunnah wal jamaat and is far from any forms of shirk or deviation.

    Keep up the good work.

    FAZAIL E AMAAL

    I really dislike calling it the “Tablighi Jama’at”, simply because there does exist no sect of that name. It’s the blessed work and responsibilty of every single Muslim. That’s why I’ve until now avoided to post entries or articles making this effort business of a special group.

    But it’s none the less important to refuse the false accusations spread by ignorant brother and sisters, so I just found this excellent article defending the means of this effort and the book used Faza’il-e-A’maal.

    A brief introduction

    Tableegh literally means ‘to convey’. Contextually, it refers to conveying the message of Islam. This is the sunnah of all the prophets. The most important rule of tableegh is hikmah. Allah Ta’ala says in the Holy Quran:

    ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة
    Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel.

    (Verse: 16:125)

    Whosoever does tableegh must adopt hikmah. It is only then, that people will understand and accept.

    The system conducted by the Tableegh Jama’at was initiated by Moulana Ilyas Saheb (Rahimahullah). He observed that people were too engrossed in their worldly activities and had forgotten the objective for which they had been sent to this world. He realised that they had to free some time from their worldly engagements, to sit and ponder about Allah Ta’ala and their purpose for being sent to this world. Therefore, he started calling people to the masjid, and reminded them about Allah Ta’ala and His greatness. Initially people rebuked him, they discouraged him and used to say that they had no time for all of this; but as time went by, they realised the truth behind it and the need for it, and started joining him in calling others towards Allah Ta’ala. Thereafter, when more people started joining this work, a few guidelines had to be set, to make sure that the work was done in a proper manner. Different time periods of 3 days, 40 days, etc. were set, so that people knew for how long they had to be away, and could make the necessary arrangements for that period.

    Their beliefs and objectives

    Those that are engaged in the work of tableegh are from the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah. They do not have any beliefs that are exclusive to them. Each one is allowed to follow his own mazhab, as long as he does not move away from the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.

    Their objective is that each and every Muslim adopts the Islamic way in all aspects of life. They do not advice anyone to leave all their daily activities and join this work, but they encourage people to take out some time from their daily engagements so that the rest of the time could be spent in accordance to the teachings of Islam. Spending time in the path of Allah is not the objective of the work, but rather the objective is to adopt the Islamic lifestyle whilst engaged in daily activities, whether one is at home with family or at his work place; spending time in the path of Allah Ta’ala only acts as a means to fulfil this objective.

    Proof from Quran and Hadith

    There are numerous verses of the Quran and the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that support the practice of tableegh. Hereunder are a few of them:

    From the Holy Quran:

    1.ادع إلى سبيل ربك بالحكمة والموعظة الحسنة
    Invite (people) to the way of your lord with wisdom and good counsel.

    (Verse: 16:125)

    2.ولتكن منكم أمة يدعون إلى الخير ويأمرون بالمعروف وينهون عن المنكر
    And there has to be a group of people from among you who call towards good and prevent from evil.

    (Verse: 3:104)

    3.ومن أحسن قولا ممن دعا إلى الله وعمل صالحا وقال إنني من المسلمين
    And who is better in utterance than the one who called people towards Allah, and acts righteously and says, “I am one of those who submit themselves (to Allah Ta’ala).

    (Verse: 41:33)

    From the Ahadith of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam):

    4.فقال أبو سعيد أما هذا فقد قضى ما عليه سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول من رأى منكم منكرا فليغيره بيده فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه وذلك أضعف الإيمان
    Hazrat Abu Sa’eed (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that he heard Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saying, “Whosoever witnesses a forbidden act being committed, he should prevent it by the use of his hands; if he is unable to do so, then he should prevent it with his tongue; if he is unable to do so, he should at least consider it a vice in his heart; and this is a very low level of Iman”.

    Sahih Muslim Vol.2 Pg.211/2 (Darul Ma’rifah)

    5.عن النعمان بن بشير رضي الله عنهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال مثل القائم على حدود الله والواقع فيها كمثل قوم استهموا على سفينة فأصاب بعضهم أعلاها وبعضهم أسفلها فكان الذين في أسفلها إذا استقوا من الماء مروا على من فوقهم فقالوا لو أنا خرقنا في نصيبنا خرقا ولم نؤذ من فوقنا فإن يتركوهم وما أرادوا هلكوا جميعا وإن أخذوا على أيديهم نجوا ونجوا جميعا
    It has been reported by Nu’man bin Bashir (Radhiyallahu Anhu) that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “There are people who do not transgress the limits (laws) of Allah Ta’ala, and there are others who do so. They are like two groups who boarded a ship; one of them settled on the upper deck, and the other on the lower deck of the ship. When the people of the lower deck needed water, they said, “Why should we cause trouble to the people of the upper deck when we can have plenty of water by making a hole in our deck”. Now, if the people of the upper deck do not prevent this group from such foolishness, all of them will perish; but if they stop them, they will be saved”.

    Sahih Al Bukhari Vol.3 Pg.152 (Darul fikr)

    One may question that the above mentioned Aayaat and Ahadith only prove the practice of tableegh. They do not prove the manner in which it is coordinated by the Tabligh Jama’at (e.g. specifying the time period of 40 days, stipulating time for ta’lim and gusht, etc.).

    The answer to this is simple. There are some commandments in Shari’ah in which the method is not stipulated. For example, it is a commandment of Shariah to acquire knowledge, but the manner in which the Madrasas are established today, is not proven through Quran and Hadith. Up until the recent past, the scholars used to teach in the masjids of their respective towns and villages. The students had to go to different scholars to learn the different sciences. No arrangements of food or boarding were made. However, the zeal for knowledge had decreased as time went by, and the scholars felt it necessary to establish the system of Darul Ulooms as is established today. Nobody regards such a system to be bid’ah.

    Similarly, Shariah has commanded us to do the work of tableegh. This work used to be done on an individual basis. The learned people used to preach the others and prevent them from all vices. As time went on, vice started prevailing, and people had stopped doing the work on an individual basis; therefore, a collective effort had to take place, and rules had to be set up for the work to carry on in order.

    The outcome of Tableegh

    Anyone with a sound mind and fair thinking will have no option but to accept that the work of Tableegh has been responsible, to a great extent, in the reformation that has taken place in the Muslim Ummah, in the last few decades. Tableegh Jama’at has played a big role in the establishment of madrasas in the last few years. Similarly, it has influenced many Muslim men and women in adapting their attire and appearance in accordance to sunnah. It acts as a deterrent for the Muslim youth from going to cinemas, night clubs, discothèques, raves and all other places of sin. Cricket players like Sa’eed Anver and pop singers like Junaid Jamshed, who were drowned in sin, have now become the means for spreading Islam. Tabligh Jama’at plays an important role in preaching Islam to those who have even forgotten the kalimah, like those staying in the Kazakhistan, , etc. and the descendants of Arabs staying in South America. Many non Muslims have also accepted Islam through this effort.

    Fazail-e-A’mal

    A brief introduction:

    This kithab was compiled by Hazrath Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah). It consists of Aayaats of the Quran, Ahadith, stories of the Sahabah and stories of the pious predecessors that explain the virtues of good deeds. The object of the book is to encourage the Muslims on doing good deeds, and not to explain any ruling of Shari’ah. Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah) was not the first to write a kithab of this manner, but the likes of this kithab have been written by the authors of the past, like Kithab-u-Zuhd by Abdullah bin Mubarak (Rahimahullah), Fadhaiulul Quran by Imam Shafi’ (Rahimahullah), Al Adabul Mufrad by Imam Bukhari (Rahimahullah), Al Targheeb Wal Tarheeb by Ibnul Qayyim Munziri (Rahimahullah), etc.

    The role of Fazail-e-A’mal in Tableegh Jama’at

    It is a total misconception that Fazail-e-A’mal is the guide book of Tableegh Jama’at. This book only consists of the virtues of good deeds. The concept of Tableegh Jama’at was not derived from this book, nor is the jama’at dependant on this book to do the work of tableegh. They thought it necessary to stipulate such a book that would encourage people towards good deeds, and this book served the purpose; therefore, the people who join this work are advised to stipulate a specific time for the reading of this book. However, it is not compulsory upon each an every person who joins this effort to read this book. Many of the Arabs who are doing this effort chose to read Riyadu-s-Saliheen instead, and they are allowed to carry on with this work. Similarly, Riyadu-s-Saliheen is also read in many of the masjids in Colombo on certain days of the week. Therefore, it is totally incorrect to regard this book as the guide book of Tableegh Jama’at.

    Some objections made against Fazail-e-A’mal:

    A common comment made against Fazail-e-A’mal is that some of the narrations mentioned in it are weak and fabricated. This comment is not totally correct, as there are no fabricated narrations in this book. There are dha’eef (weak) narrations in Fazail-e-A’mal. However, it is important to point out that the word dha’eef, literally translated as ‘weak’, is a terminology and should not be understood in its general sense. Its application is based on the rules explained in the sciences of hadith. Moreover, weak narrations are not acceptable only in regards to aqeedah and the rulings of Islamic jurisprudence. Majority of the scholars have accepted weak narrations as far as virtues of good deeds are concerned. Even Imam Bukhari (Rahimahullah) has brought weak narrations in his book, Al Adabul Mufrad, which shows that he also accepts weak narrations in regards to virtues of good deeds.
    Some scholars claim that there are such narrations in Fazail-e-A’mal, especially in Fazail-e-Durood, that prove that the author had beliefs of shirk and believed in the Omnipresence of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). These are false allegations made against the author, who was one of the most prominent scholars of the Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.Firstly, such allegations are made mostly by Arab scholars, who are unaware of the difference between the Deobandis and the Barelwis. They regard both these groups to be one, as both of them are from Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah, and attribute the beliefs of Barelwis to the Deobandis. It is some of the Barelwis who believe in grave-worshipping and the Omnipresence of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), and these beliefs have been attributed to the Deobandis. Some of these Arab scholars, like Shaikh Ibn Uthaymeen (Rahimahullah), retracted from what they said after the actual situation was explained to them.Secondly, the author has mentioned references for each and every narration or incident he has mentioned. Therefore, any comments regarding these narrations or incidents should be attributed to the author of the reference provided, as Shaikh Zakariya (Rahimahullah) has absolved himself by giving the reference.Thirdly, most of the incidents mentioned in Fazail-e-Durood are of pious predecessors. It is incorrect to say that these are fabricated Ahadith, as the word Hadith is used for the sayings of Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). It is also incorrect to confirm the beliefs of the author through these incidents, as the object of the author was only to emphasise on the virtues of durood mentioned in them.Moreover, most of the incidents mentioned are dreams, and no rulings of Shari’ah can be derived from dreams. It is farfetched to confirm someone’s faith from a dream, of another person, mentioned in his kithab.Lastly, most of the copies of Fazail-e-A’mal do not have Fazail-e-Durood attached to them, and it is not considered as part of the kithab-reading stipulated by the Tableegh Jama’at.
    It is incorrect to compare the Shias, Qadiani, etc. with Tableegh Jama’at as we have clarified above that Tableegh Jama’at is not based on the narrations of Fazail-e-A’mal; and none of the narrations of Fazail-e-A’mal are fabricated.
    To end thereof, one should not be misguided with all the false accusations on this jama’at, but rather look at how the Ummah has benefited through this jama’at. We should always supplicate to Allah Ta’ala to show us the right path and save us from the misguidance of Shaitan. Moreover, we should always bear in mind that the pious and the learned amongst the Ummah cannot be unanimous upon something that is false or not part of Islam, as Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has mentioned:

    إن الله لا يجمع أمتي أو قال أمة محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم على ضلالة ويد الله مع الجماعة ومن شذ شذ إلى النار
    Allah Ta’ala will not unite the Ummah of Muhammed (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) upon misguidance. Allah’s help is with majority. Whoever deviates from them will be thrown into the fire of Jahannum.

    Sunan Al Tirmizi Vol.2 Pg.39 (H.M. Sa’eed Company)

    A thought provoking act

    How will one account for the many thousands of people all around the world, Arabs and non-Arabs, and of all works of life, be they great Ulama, Muftis, intellectuals or professionals, to be associated with this noble work. They all cannot be wrong. They must have encountered something positive in this work for them to be part of it. The solution is, come within and see for yourself.

    And Allah knows best

    assalamualaikum akhi i wanted ask a question about this quotation:
    Shiekh Abdul wahid prayed prayer of Fajr with Abulution of Esha for 40 years (Page # 356)

    Who is this sheikh abdul wahid?I know the same history regarding imam abu hanifa(rh):Imam Ibn Katheer (RA) relates that Imam Abu Haneefa (RA) used to perform his Fajar Salah with the wudhu of Esha Salah for 40 years and at the spot where he passed away he had finished the Qur’aan 7000 times (please note that in some manuscripts it is printed as 70,000 instead of 7,000) [AlBidaya Wan-Nihaya]

  9. Malik says:

    Just leave answering of all those comments, and start doing tabligh. to know about tabligh, u should spend sometime in that….then one day u realise by yourself the importance of tabligh.

  10. mahmood says:

    This book fadail amaal is ful of shirk,lies .fabricted stories with funny sufi stories,it must be banned.

  11. syed says:

    as mentioned in Quran…”Will you not think!”

    Whatever deen we follow is a cultural-deen (a blend of Islam and the dominant culture) rather than Islam in its true sense, the bias is created when we tend to protect our cultural-Islamic values.

    You will agree that no one disputes the fundamentals of Islam but the intricacies associated with culture.

    Tableegh guides you on fundamentals and has resulted in the increase of muslim ummah and has proved instumental in their guidance. Do you know of anything better, which has done more service to Islam?

    “Will you not think!”

  12. kiran says:

    If Fazail-e-Amal is containing shirk and fabricated Ahadis then fundamentals are changed.
    WILL YOU NOT THINK ?
    What we are reading is full of shirk
    everything can be forgiven by the rehmat of Allah but Shirk.
    WILL YOU NOT THINK ?
    If tabligh guides us to fundamentals without tauheed ( by including shirk )then we do not need the these numbers.
    there are many working better than Tablighi Jamaat, Open your mind
    There can be no tabligh with shirk in own books
    WILL YOU NOT THINK ??

  13. Syed says:

    @ Sister Kiran.

    You used the word “if” before your assertion thus making it obvious that you are relying on whim rather than proof. Please confirm your views Dear sister by reading up on the issue.

    “every opinion counts.”

  14. Mohd Farhan says:

    Asalam Alai Kum,

    Previously, I used to go in jamaat for 40 days and every month 3 days without thinking what I am doing or practicing in Jamaat.

    But after listening saheeh Bukhari, saheeh Muslim, and other hadith books from Alims, I realized that apart from 10-15 hadiths, all hadiths are zayeef (false) and the stories written in fazaile amaal is going above my mind. After searching for two to three years, I came to the point that Ahlul hadees is the only jamaat who is going on right path because they tell nothing other than Quran and Hadith.

    So my brothers, Allah has told every one that “Ilm ka seekhna har musalman ke liye Farz hai” so make your mind neutral, and think that you are only a muslim, (not hanafi, shafi, tableeqi, etc etc) and read Quran and Hadith, I am sure u will stop all that silly attitudes and will come to true path, (agar Allah ne hidayat diya to) warna aise hi marja wo ge to Allah ko jawab dena pade ga us biddat or shirk ka jo tableeqi jamaat mein hai.

    Once again, my brothers please please please pray tahajud and dua to Allah to give us right path, “the path in which our sahabah (RA) was and Insha Allah you will go on right path

    Ameen,

  17. A.) Assalamu Alaiyukum my br) 1. In those Ahaadith and verses of the Qur’an wherein Allah Ta’ala ordered Nabi to give Da’awah and invite towards Deen of Allah, this also includes each and every person who claims that he is the follower of Nabi . It is incumbent and obligatory on such a person to do the work of Tabligh and Da’awah.

    2. Yes, it is true. The main objective of our creation is to worship and recognize Allah Ta’ala. In order for this to happen, each and every Muslim has a responsibility on his/her shoulders to perform this work of Da’awah and Tabligh. Nabi showed us the straight path. It is now our duty to continue treading that path and also show it to others. Allah Ta’ala states, ‘You are the best of nations taken out for the benefit of mankind, calling towards good and preventing evil.’

    3. Every person will be questioned according to his situation. For example, if a person is the owner of a business and he has non-Muslim employees and associates, he will be questioned as to whether he had conveyed the message to them. If a person has somebody doing his household chores, he will be questioned regarding this, or the king will be questioned regarding his subordinates. He will not be questioned regarding those non-Muslims around the world or any non-Muslim who he does not know and has no acquaintance with. Only those who are his family, friends, associates (in whatever aspects), subordinates, etc. And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.

  18. Said Umar Wazir says:

    Aslam U Alaikum Brothers and Sisters: Please before saying or writing anything about Da’wah Read this and some success stories at the end and then think how much Tableegh or Da’wah is impotant and needed.

    Dawah is the first and the most important Sunnah of every Prophet and of our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) and component of Islam. Man can know the Real Purpose of life once he comes to know the importance of Dawah and becomes a Daee. Every Prophet came and initiated his mission with Dawah. They connected people to the Creator. Allah has promised his help not with worship but with ‘His Way’ be it fighting against the Batil (wrong) or the Dawah. With worship, one may or may not get help of Allah but with Dawah it is promised and promised 50% more than the Suhabah R.A.
    Why has this Ummah been called the best Ummah (Kuntum khaira ummatin ukhrijat linnass) by Allah SWT? It is due to this quality of Dawah that made this Ummah as the best Ummah. Other Ummah are not called the best because a Prophet came to them, gave them Dawah and after accepting the Dawah they just started worshipping Allah and did not gave Dawah. While due to the end of Prophethood, since our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) is the last prophet and no other Prophet will come and the Dawah has to be carried on to the new generations, thus it was given to this Ummah and in this way this Ummah is responsible for Dawah and is accountable (will be asked) about it.
    Let us take an example to illustrate this point. When the army of Pharaoh fallowed Hazrat Isa (A.S) and his companions, his companions got frightened but Hazrat Isa (A.S) told them not to fear because “Allah is with me”. Similarly, when our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) took refuge in Ghar e Soar along with Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddique (R.A) who got frightened and our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) told him not to get frightened because “Allah is with us”.
    Now, concentrate on the above wordings of the two Prophets. One has many followers with him but says that “Allah is with me” but the other has a single follower with him but says “Allah is with us”. This proves the importance and greatness of this Ummah because only Hazrat Isa (A.S) was Daee therefore he was sure of Allah’s help with him but on the other hand both our Holy Prophet (S.A.W.S) and Hazrat Abu Bakar (R.A) were Daees so the Prophet (S.A.W.S) was sure of Allah’s help with both of them.
    The Tablighis or Daees (The most Humanitarian group I call them as they always have in their mind the salvation of all human beings and their protection from hell) go to different parts of the earth in groups for the purpose of Dawah. They face many hardships but are removed with the help of Allah miraculously. In the result of this Dawah millions of people are coming within the circle of Islam Alhamdulillah. I’ll try my best to convey true and precise stories of the neo-Muslims which will tell us why and how they became Muslims.

    Now let us take some success stories and there is nothing to be jealous of because saving people from Hell is an honourable work thus it needs appreciation with courage. So please dare to appreciate and offer prayer and dua for those who are doing this great and true work. JazakAllah Khairan

    40,000 people became Muslims in Africa due to the work and Dawah of a Tablighi group:
    A group of Muslims or Tablighis belonging from district Kohat of Khyber Pakhtoonkhwah province, Pakistan, returned from African continent with a happy news that 40,000 people embraced Islam there due to Dawah and their work. Though, I do not know the details of this happy news but it is really encouraging and shows the importance of Dawah.

    The Story of a priest;
    A group of Muslims belonging to district Kohat of Khyber Pakhtoonkhwah province, Pakistan, came with an impressive story of how a Priest embraced Islam. A person from the group whom I witnessed myself said that we were in African Mosque which is also a Tablighi Markaz (Islamic Center) on Thursday (Shab e Jumaa). We were amazed to see a Christian Priest in a Mosque rushing towards us. When he reached us we heard him saying Al-Jannah, Al-Jannah….. and then pointed to all our companions from Kohat. We asked him the reason thus he said that:
    “I preached to the Muslims my own faith and converted thousands of Muslims to my faith. But last night I saw in my dream a very beautiful place with beautiful gardens and buildings. I had never seen such a beautiful and bewitching place in my life even in my imaginations and dreams. I saw that a crowd of people is entering through a gate to that beautiful place and this group with turbans was also among them. I also attempted to go there but when I reached there I was stopped by the gatekeepers saying that “this place is for the people of Quran not for the people of Bible”. After a while I again attempted to enter the crowed thinking that the gatekeepers will not recognize me again but when I reached there they again stopped me and said that “this place is for the people of Quran not for the people of Bible”. Then I tried for the third time to enter that place but I was again stopped by the gatekeepers and said that “haven’t we told you that this place is for the people of Quran not for the people of Bible”. They also hit me with a fist this time due to which I woke up. Now I was extremely anxious to come here to you people and embrace Islam. I waited for the morning and also was frightened that if I died in this condition I’ll be deprived of Jannah. Now I am here and make me a Muslim”.
    He then took bath and said Kalima e Shahadah…. After that he swore that until I return all the converts to Islam I will not get comfortable. Allah Akbar

    Good to read all the views.. but the fact remains the same is Tabligi Jamat a new SECT in ISLAM? The Christain Missionaries work more than Tabligi and go and establish themselves in remote places where these followers of nabe, TABLIGI never reach or run away…So can we claim the ALLAH is helping them? Tablig should start from HOME, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, LOCALITY and then INTERNATIONAL. but these tabligi just go to picnic for 40 days or 4 months and then go for international picnic. I want to ask them they always SAY” THIS IS NABIYO WALA KAAM” Can you show which nabe went for 40 days or 4 months or any SAHAB whome our beloved nabe send for specific days? It cannot be proved with sahih hadees, yes they might have mawdoo hadees..
    THE Authentic Hadees books are full of facts about sahaba and our nabe… then what was the need for moulana zakariya to search for PIOUS PEOPLE and document them.. It is claimed that moulana zakariya thought Sahih Bukhari 30 times… which has 7000 Authentic HAdees about nabe and sahaba, then why did he document shirk and bidah in the name of pious people. The original name of the book was TABLIGI NISAB and later was renamed to Fazail le Amaal, can these tabligi tell WHY? The fact is this sect which is propagator for SHIRK AND BIDAH should be stopped. What these tabligi carry is the ideology and manhaj of moulana ILYAS who was a sufi follower and not of nabe..
    ALL MUSLIMS SHOULD OPEN THEIR MIND and JUST READ QURAN ONCE with meaning, they will understand the facts themselves.

    Will any one eat a plate of ‘biryani’,which smells good , but has broken pieces of glass and poinouss spices.
    These books preach, shirk, grave worship, fatiha qani, esal-e-sawab,rohbaniyat.
    Christianity has only one resurrection of Jesus, but in this book all the prophets and awliyas are resurrected and gather every Fiday night in Haram-e-Sharief.
    Some of the stories are like Harry Potter, where in a person strays and lands in to the land of Jinns, and they ask a question and he finds it written on a petal of flower.
    In The Muslim observer dated August 14,2010 is an article of grave of prophets somewhere in Punjab, and these soofies made a visit to those graves.
    The main purpose of this movement is to bring back the days of ‘jahliyah’ and ‘shirk’
    May Allah save us from these deviant groups bent upon destryoing the pure and simple faith of Islam

    Out of the 24 hours, a man needs a minimum of 12 hours for his personal needs and sleep. The remaining 12 hours equals 720 minutes or 8640 seconds.

    Can a person perform 2000 rakats of salat every day, that is three rakats in one minute?
    Can a person complete eight recitals of Quran in a day, that is one Quran in 90 minuts?
    Can a person recite 40,000 ‘khuls’ that is surah Ikhlas in a day, that is 50 khuls in a minute?
    Can a person recite 1,25,000 ‘durrod’ in a day, that is 130 ‘durood’ in a minute?

    Safia, Maulana Ilyas’s mother.

    The mother of Maulana Mohammad Ilyas, Bi Safia, had learnt the Quran by heart and attained great distinction in it. It was a regular practice with her to recite the whole of the Quran and additional ten Juze (part) every day during Ramadan. She, thus, completed forty recitals of the Quran in that month and was so fluent in it that her household duties did not suffer on account of it. See, generally, kept herself engaged in some work while doing the recitation. Apart from the month of Ramadan, her daily routine of worship included: DURUD Sharif, 5,000 times; Ism-i-Zaat Allah, 5,000 times; Bismillah ar-Rahman ar-Rahim, 1,000 times, Yaa Mughnee-u 1,100 times, La illaaha illallaah, 1,200 times Yaa-Haiyyu, Ya Qaiyum 200 times, Hasbiallaah wa ni’mul Vakil, 500 times; Subhan Allah, 200 times; Alhamdu lillaah, 200 times; La ilaaha illallaah, 200 times; Allah O-Akbar, 200 times; Istighfar, 500 times; Ofwwizu amree illallaah, 100 times; Hasbunallaah wa ni’mul Vakil, 1000 times; Rabb-i in-ni maghloobun fantasir, 1,000 times: Rabb-i-inni masanni-az-zurru wa anla ar-hamur rahimeen, 100 times; Laa ilaaha enta subhanaka in-ni kunzu minaz-zalimeen, 100 times. In addition, she recited a Manzil (1/7) of the Quran everyday.

    That is a a total of 17300 recitals plus one seventh of Quran in 720 minutes.

    Do we have to believe this bluff?

    There is no difference between Brelweis and Deobandies. Both preach Soofism.
    Fazael-e-Amall is the trainig manuel for Soofism.

    Sufism is not just an emphasis on the purification of the soul but a
    complete ideology in itself and it is marred by un-Islamic
    concepts and philosophies like:-
    1. The belief of Wahdat al-Wajood, which implies that the Creator
    (Allah) and the creation are one, and the creation is just the
    manifestation of the Creator.2. The belief that the Prophets and the Sufi saints are alive in their
    graves, just as they were alive in this world. They are fully aware
    of the outside world; they can communicate with the living and
    help those who call upon them.
    3. The spirits (Ruh) of the righteous comes back from the Barzakh.
    4. Gross exaggeration in praising the Messenger of Allah  whilst
    neglecting his  teachings in understanding the religion.
    5. Total and complete obedience to a Sufi Shaikh.
    6. Penance and living the lives of hermits are ways to get closer to
    Allah.
    7. Some Majzoobs, who have reached the goal of Sufism, run the
    affairs of the creation.45

  27. Fazael e Aamal has more Sufi stuff than Islam

    Zakaria Kandhalvi was a practicing Sufi indulging in Sufi practices and ‘azkars’

  28. mohammed irshad says:

    i was in tablighi jamat from last 5 years. i was thinking in fazail e amaal all stories and hadees are true because of their work. when i visited to their origin place Saharanpur and deoband i was shocked. the deobandi and barelvi are same. then i started to research their one by one books with compare with sahih hadith. i found lots of shirk and bidat same like sufi and barelvi. after that which is included in fazail e ammal, bahishti zewar, durre mukhtar, amaal quran. deeniyat so and so…….

    i request to my brothers and sisters please read fazaio e amaal and compare with sahih hadith and ask ur alim mufti and others. insha allah till qayamat they won’t answer from quran and hadith. they will answer to you from their elders book who done and doing shirk and bidath
