Q529: Tabligh Jamaat and Ahle Sunnah Wal Jaamat

Question

What is the basic difference between Tabligh Jamaat and Ahle Sunnah Wal Jaamat?

Answer

In Ahlus Sunnah wal jama’ah – ‘Sunnah’ stands for the sunnah /traditions/ways of our Prophet (Salalahu Alaihi WaSallam) Jama’ah stands for the Jama’at or group of the Sahaba (RA).

The ‘Ahlus Sunnah wal jama’ah’ are those who hold strictly to the Sunnah in every form in all aspects of life and who hold onto the way of the Sahaba, also their thinking is in confirmation with that of the Sahaba. The members of tabligh jamaat are from Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama’ah.
