Tableeghi Jamaat and Islamic khilaafat - Faqeeh-ul-Ummat Mufti Mahmood Hasan Gangohi

Q: Some people say that it is necessary to have an Islamic khilaafat,but the tableeghi jamaat does not make an effort towards it. Instead,it is against it.

A: Which Muslim could ever be against an Islamic rule but at the same time, who would administrate the affairs of the Islamic government? Those who have no Islamic training cannot manage theaffairs.

Therefore, through the effort of da`wat and tableegh such individuals are being prepared. Look! When plans were being made for the freedom of India a large group of Muslims desired that Pakistan be formed and this would result in an Islamic government. Those who were against it did not do so because they did not want an Islamic government, rather they were concerned as to who would control the Islamic government.

In proportion to the amount of Islam an individual has in himself will he be able to control an Islamic government. Without the proper training one will not acquire true Islam. Therefore, an effort needs tobe made for one to be well trained, and this is taking place through the tableeghi jamaat. May Allah Ta`ala grant them success.

Hadhrat Hasan had written the following letter to his younger brother Hadhrat Husain in conformity with his rank: This(leadership) has left our hands due to our incapability. Now, the striving for Deen would be done through exhorting and inviting, and no more through the power of the state. Remember, that these personalities were our seniors and they would always take a stock of their souls. No matter what great ranks they had reached yet they always considered themselves incapable and unworthy.
