This is an initial response to investigate the claims of heresy, Bid’ah and shirk associated with and around Tableeghi Jamaat. The writer neither has any affiliations with Tableeghi Jamaat nor participates in their activities and has not completed their recommendation of going out for 4 months in the Path of Allah (SWT) to learn the work of Tableegh. However, the writer has read countless articles and books on the subject, heard many speeches , watched many youtube videos, and then discussed the issues directly with Scholars actively associated with Tableeghi Jamaat to get as accurate of a picture as possible.
