Where the Tarteeb of Jamaat Tabligh is based on? E.g.40 days is based on where, 4 months and 3 days? And Ijtima?ANSWER:
Regarding the matter of going in Tableegh Jamaat for these specific amount of days and months etc, the Islamic Shari’ah did not mention anything in particular. However, based on the profound experience of the pious personalities, it is mentioned that if any person spends a certain amount of time in Tableegh Jamaat, then there will be a positive transformation in his life and he will develop a special inclination towards Deen.
According to Hadith the child is formed in the womb of the mother and after every forty days a specific change occurs and after four months the child’s body becomes completely formed, after that the soul is then placed into the body.
Hazrat Moosa (A.S) was commanded by Allah to perform Ibaadah on the mountain of Toor for a period of forty days, and after the completion of that task he was granted the Toorah.
In the Arabic context of plural, three is the least amount that can form a plural, less than three cannot be classified as plural.
In addition to this, if a person performs one good deed, he will get the reward of that deed ten times, for this reason, if someone spends three days in Jamaat, then he will get the reward of one whole month, and if he spends three days every month he will get the reward of an entire year. If anyone takes these specific periods and calculations into consideration, thereby acting on them it would be very meritorious.
A smart person is one who acknowledges the profound experience of other people and likewise those who strive in order to make the Tarbiyat of others and act according to their prescription of time and activity in order to attain good results in the matter of Deen.
However, if someone does not follow these specified times that has been mentioned rigidly, then it is not correct to say that they are committing a sin
And AllãhTa’ãla knows best
