The two wings of Tabligh


Shaykh Mawlana Mohammad Manzur Nomani (Allah have mercy on him) wrote to a disciple,

‘The vigilance in remembrance (dhikr), contemplation (fikr) and spending time alone with Allah (khalwa) is decreasing in those associated with Tabligh. This is a dangerous development. There are two wings (needed) for Tabligh. First is  the effort and striving among the public. The other is having a very special relationship with Allah. It is essential to maintain a balance between them.’
