Departments of Deen

Bismillahir Rahmaainr Raheem

Each group of “Haq” (Truth), whether engaged in Madrasahs, Darul Ulooms, Khanqahs, Jihad, Tabligh or Welfare, should consider the other as supplementary and complementary, and as an assistance to one another. No group should consider the other as an opposition.

All parts of the aeroplane engine are required to fly the plane. The Defence Force of a country requires military, airforce, navy, foot soldiers, commanders, transport operators, computer attendants, pilots, etc. to fortify and defend the country’s borders.

For the defence and propagation of Islam, people are required to man different departments. We should therefore not insist that everyone does only one type of Deen work. 

What is necessary is that all Deeni workers, in all departments, should work with sincerity and in accordance with the teachings of Allah Ta’ala, our Beloved Rasul (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) and the noble example of the Sahabah (RA), who were the companions of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam).
