Tabligh Movement

In Tabligh Movement Maulana Wahiduddin Khan takes a critical look at the Tabligh Movement. According to the author, usually movements and parties are a product of their own time and circumstances. Although they claim to have derived their goal from eternal truths and use similar terms to express their aims and objectives, they are set in the present - a reaction to the circumstances. But the Tabligh work far from being something of momentary significance is based on eternal truths. It is eternal values that concern this movement. Its appeal is to human nature, which is not subject to change. While external circumstances 'are in a state of flux, issues which initially seemed important tend to lose their charm. So a movement based on current issues can never have a lasting appeal. It can only find its place in the storehouse of history. Since the Tabligh movement is based' on the demands of human nature; its appeal is lasting, and, so long as its people continue to carry on the work with sincerity of intention, the appeal will last, no matter how circumstances may change.
