Difference Between Sunni and Tabligh

Sunni vs Tabligh

Islam has many branches and the major branches are Sunni, Tabligh and Shia. All these branches are different in their religious practice, belief in god and other things. Here let us discuss the major difference between Sunni and Tabligh.

Tabligh is the branch in Islam that considers that there is one God. It also considers that Prophet Mohammad was a Man who was doing God’s work as he was chosen for it.

The Tabligh also believes that they are in this world for not just spreading religion but also to remind all Muslims of his duties as a religious person. It also stresses that all Muslims live a life laid down by Prophet Mohammad. Tabligh wants all Muslims to follow the words of the great prophet and be an example for others. It stresses that all Muslims should live as was taught some 1400 years ago.

Tabligh was actually not a branch of Islam. Earlier Tabligh was known as ‘informing’. All Muslims, including the Shais and Sunnis had to follow Tabligh.

Sunni is a branch of Islam that has almost the same system as that of the Tabligh group. One of the major differences that can be seen is that the Sunnis believed that Prophet Mohammad was not a mere man. For the Sunnis, Prophet Mohammad was more than a man who had universal power. The Sunnis also accepted the first four caliphs as the rightful successors of Prophet Muhammad.

“Sunni” is a word that has been derived from Sunnah, an Arabic word that refers to the actions and words of Prophet Mohammad.However, there are many contradictions about the word Tabligh.

Sunnis also form the largest group of Islams in the world.

  1. slmz to all..tell me guys what is the difference between this sunni and tabligh.we all bow down to one allah.so why all this dispute.sit back and think it is said that before qiyaamah there will be dispute amongst us and there the time has come so lets all unite and show these nasaaras that we are all one.believe what you have learned and what you feel is right.one of the sunnah of nabi s.a.w was to make tabligh so… and “im a muslim and im proud to be one”

    • i agree wid u bro,der is a slite difference in sunni n tabligi jammat,its lik der is 99 common thg n 1 difference, if we r only lookg to dat 1 diff den we r ignorg 99 common thg, i m proud to b a muslim….

    • All the muslims have same goal and fallow 4 imams so that all the sunnah would be fallowed and implimented,Bila Tashbi it is like the 4 departments of the same company.keeping this concept in mind we the muslims will Insha Allah unite and bring peace and will be successful in Almi Banzak a nd day of Judgment.

  2. Tablighi are a sub branch of Sunni School of thought, not a separate one.

    • The information on this website is false. There is no seperate branch called as Tabligh. We all muslims are sunnis as we follow the Sunnah of Our prophet. When a person who is sunni is reaching out the message, i mean the propagation of the message of the islam is called doing tabligh, its not a separate group.

      My dear muslim brothers, dont blindly believe on the information posted on the websites, you can read the quran and the hadiths to get the first hand information and correct your thinkings.

      • Scott,

        I agree with you. I was searching for some difference in belief and practice between Sunni and Shite but after reading the information here; I found it misleading especially when it mentioned that Tabligh believe there is one god. For any non muslim without basic knowledge, this can be thought in a different manner.

  3. Assalaamu aleikum

    In this article there are some major flaws. First of all, Sunnies are not in our age and have never been one single group. There has always been different groups with some minor differences.

    As for the base from which you make this claim. You see the Berelwi point of view and thinking that it is the only correct belief of Sunni Islam. Which is a grave mistake. Let me answer your claims.

    The only difference that you could find was that you believe prophet of having universal powers, while you say that your opponent does not.

    As for berelwi beliefs of prophet being Hazir Nazir, first of all this is not agreed upon by the Sunni scholars. And second of all, even the Berelwi scholars do not think that this belief of prophet being Hazir Nazir is a belief, which is compulsory on anyone. So they consider this legal difference in which the opponent is not considered having blame. In my country Sunnies other, than Berelwi including myself, Shafei don’t believe prophet as being Hazir Nazir. And another beliefs as for prophet having knowledge of gheib. The belief that prophet doesen’t know the Gheib completely, the belief comes from the Kuran. And you will not find this claim in the narrations of classical Islamic scholars. Majority of Sunnies, including scholars of Syria, Egypt, Indonesia.. Believe prophet as having some amazing things, some gifts from Allah. But they do consider prophet being only normal human being, not made of light like angels.. And for certainly not divine, or having control over the universe.

    Sunnies have some major groups, them being Ikhwan, Tabligh, Jihadi and Sufi. Also followers of Ibn Taymeyah and Muhammed Bin Abdul Wahhab are considered to be Sunnies.

    If you seek to find difference between Sunnies and other groups.. You need to read Aqeedatottahaweyyah. In it there has been given majority of the beliefs of Sunnies. And in it you will not find ANY reference on prophet as having superhuman universal powers. Some person might still believe in these things and be Sunni. But they are certainly not a belief, which is mandatory for one to be from people of Sunnah.

    Tabligh name was itself used by the prophet to convey his message. As was also his question.. Hal ballaghto? Did I convey the message? Da3wah, Tabligh, Risaalah, or whatever can be used for work of Amr bil Ma3ruuf and Nahi 3anil munkar. And there is nothing wrong with group naming itself Jama3atottableegh.

    I want to emphasize that Berelwies are not the only Sunni group and they do not make the majority in Sunni Islam, nor are all their beliefs universally accepted in Sunni Islam. But they also do belong to Sunni Branch of Islam.

    • Caution all Muslims,

      It is total falsehood,

      Answer:

      Tabligh is not a madhab(sect). It is an organization which doing job differently not something alien. It follow the book fazail-e-amaal, muntakhaab-hadith and fazael-e-sdakaat. Which is Collection of hadiths from bukhari, muslim, tirmidhi etc. of aishya (ra), omar and abu-bakr (ra) etc. Means basically sunni.

  4. this person adding these things doesnt know what he is talking about sufis, tabblighs etc are all sunnis they are just different sects in the sunna and different ways of getting closer to allah

  5. i thnk ths site is handled by barelvi muslims who call thmselves as only sunni sect bcoz the difference u hav made amongst many sects like tabligh and barelve(u call them sunnis),deoband and sunnis are not relevant infact totally wrong.deoband muslims are the only muslims who perfectly accepts the taqleed of imam abu haneefa:r.a:,the barelvi sect goes against to the belief of abov mentione imam.barelves commit lot of shirk and are bidati,and thatz y evry fiqh school is against their beliefs and rituals.

  6. It’s quite obvious that the author of this article has a limited knowledge of what he was writing . . . or even totally ignorant of . . . .

  7. Assalaamu aleikum

    We should not also fall into the trap of calling berelwi doing shirk, etc. Many of them are simply ignorant, but absolute majority still Muslim.

    What I find so funny about this article is that the person, who wrote this article could not prove his point with anything else, than saying that “Sunnis” call prophet Muhammed SAWS just a human being. And he said, real Sunnis call prophet more, than human being. Prophet himself said: “Innamaa ana rajolon methlakom.” Indeed, I am nothing more, than a man like you.

    We do say, prophet was special men, Allah gave him sometimes glimpses of Gheib, he was best of human being. But to call him mere man IS CORRECT, since he himself said that. Innamaa ana rajolon methlakom. I would like ANYONE to bring me a proof that prophet was made from noor, like angels, or that prophet was not a man, or is not a man, or even proof that he is not merely a man. And from Sahih, or Hasan Hadiths/Quran, please. No weak, or fabricated Ahadith.

  8. istwe have to cn4m that the prsn who told us dat kind of knwlg is MUSLIM or not……. there r many pepls who r n0t muslms bt and share wrog kind of things with muslims…….. this is really vry vry dangerous 4 us…………..

  9. what was the different, he dont mention it ,,, that’s not a matter what ever u group belong the infortant is your following the sunna of nabi muhammad (peace be upon him) and the qur’an…..

  10. There’s not important differences between Sunni’s and Tabligh, all of them follow the Profet (s.a.w.) and stick firmly to the Qur’an and to his Sunnah. Of course Muhammad is the most and very important man, but with the only difference from the rest of the mortals, that he was specially empowered by the Power and Wisdom of God and with the only mission to spread the Message of LA ILAHA ILA AL-ALAH MUHAMMADAN RASULULLAH, until the Last Day.

    By the way, I’m Tabligh and Sunni.

    assalamu alaykum wa rahma tu al-lahi wa barakatuhu!!

  11. Tablighi are Deobandi and are from Wahabi Sect but they are pretending to be Sunni.Lol
    Tablighi/ Deobandi have accepted that they are Wahabi.

    1) Book ” Sawanah Hazrat Maulana Yousaf” Page.191, 192
    2) Book “Azafat Alyoomiyah” P age.75

    and many more

    • Answer to Siraj

      First of all. Who people call Salafist and Wahhabist. This is something connected to Marjaa, the religious authority, whom you follow. Salafi/wahhabi they say you should not follow one mathab, or one Alim blindly. And their MAIN marjaas are IbnTaymeyah, Ibn Qayyem, Ibn Baaz, Shaykh Albani and Muhammed Bin Abdul Wahhab.

      When you see Deoband and Tabligh. None of their books are from that marjaa. All of Deoband follow Abu Hanifah and they do not accept evidence from salafists in cases of Fiqh.

      It is really BIG sin to use words like this to mock Muslims, while at the same time you yourself did not bother to study Islam and dont know what are you talking about.

      I would like to get knowledeable reply on the basics, where you have derived your Fiqh. What is the evidence that Deobandis, or Tablighis follow the basics of Fiqh of Muhammed Bin Abdul Wahhab, Ibn Taymeyah, Ibn Qayyoom, etc? It is not about any fatwa. But you should bring evidence that they either teach that it is fisq to follow mathab. Or it is very bad, condemnable, etc. And that you should yourself follow what you understand from Quran. Without this kind of evidence the claim, Deobandis are Salafists simply does not fit.

      Muhammed.. If people of Tabligh do something wrong, please tell me what is it.

  12. BEFORE “MAUT” COME TO YOU, the persons who follow tabligh think n ask the right person who knows Allah, communicate with Allah zahiran wa bathinan. (Wali Allah) Then ask him either tabligh is right or wrong. DO NOT CHOOSE THE WRONG PERSON….
