Moulana Maseehullah’s View on the Masturaat Jamaats

What Does Moulana Maseehullah Say about Masturaat Jamaats?

Q. What does Moulana Maseehullah say about masturaat jamaats?

A. We are not aware of Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah’s (Rahmatullahi alaih) comments on the ladies Tablighi Jamaat, if any. We are aware, however, of his comments in regard to women vying with men in the public domain. Hazrat Moulana Maseehullah Saheb (Rahmatullahi alaih) said that when a woman steps out of the sacred confines of her home then do not expect her to be contented at home.

We are also aware of what Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said with regard to a woman who emerges from her home. Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said that when a woman emerges from her home Shaitaan casts surreptitious glances at her. He waits in ambush to use and abuse her by inflicting fitnah. Thus, in the light of the Hadeeth of Rasoolullah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) women who leave their homes are mustashrafaat – upon whom sneaky and sly gazes of the Shayaateen fall. They do not remain masturaat (concealed) when emerging from their homes. Shaytaan uses them to seduce and destroy males. The aftermath of this fitnah is misery piled upon misery. Home is the woman’s bastion of Haya and Taqwa. She has not been created for globe-trotting on Tableegh missions.
