A Visit to Tamil Nadu Jamaats


Ever since the formal establishment of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in Tamil Nadu, especially with many of our brothers and sisters from the  neighbouring State joining Imam-Jamaat Hadhrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius and the respected and honoured members of the holy family for the Kerala Jalsa Salana at the Noor’ul Islam Masjid at Mathra last December; it has been the ardent wish of the members of the South Kerala Jamaat to go and meet our brothers in their own villages. Alhamdulillah, by the Grace and blessings of Allah, Mukarram Amir Jamaluddin Saheb of the South Kerala Jamaat; accompanied by Naib Amir Sadiq Ali Saheb, Secretary Tabligh Sulfikar Ali Saheb, and this humble blogger- recently had the opportunity to visit our brothers in Tamil Nadu- at Kottar and at Meleppalayam/Tirunelveli, and also to visit the site of the proposed first Mosque of the Jamaat in Tamil Nadu, the Siraj-um-Munir Masjid Project near Papanasam; 15-17 June 2019, Soumma Alhamdulillah.

As part of the first-leg of the tour, the south Kerala Jamaat team reached Kottar, a small-town near Kanya Kumari, the southern- most point in mainland India. Having met some of our Jamaat members at Kottar; the Team extended the journey to Meleppalayam/Tirunelveli Jamaat as well. Since two of the team members had not yet been there, the journey was also extended to include the proposed Siraj-um-Munir Masjid site near Papanasam, Alhamdulillah.

The 'Siraj-um-Munir' Masjid Project


Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam-Tamil Nadu (India) recently announced the construction of its first Mosque Complex project in the State, coinciding with the historic visit of Hadhrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius and the respected and honoured members of the blessed Household to the south of India- Tamil Nadu & Kerala, November-December 2018. The Siraj-um-Munir Masjid is to come up at a plot of land donated for that specific purpose by our respected and dynamic brother Mukarram Na'ib Amir Saleem Saheb and family, Alhamdulillah. The foundation stone laying prayer for the proposed Masjid complex took place in the presence of Hazrat Khalifatullah (atba) and family in a function of the Tamil Nadu Jamaat on 20 November 2018, Soumma Alhamdulillah. 


Speaking on the occasion, Hazrat Khalifatullah (atba) celebrated the blessed moment by reminding everyone about the importance of pure intention along with pure belief. In our quest to seek Divine pleasure and to acquire His approval, we need to be mindful of Divine commandments and expectations in all that we do. We also need to display solidarity and demonstrate the spirit of participation with our fellow brethren- men, women and children- in the race for doing righteous deeds in pursuit of shared goals and common objectives, Insha-Allah, Aameen

Reproduced below is the text of the Speech:  

My dear disciples,
Assalamoualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuhu.

We are reunited here today 20 November 2018 in the month of Rabi’ul Awwal 1440 (fourteen-forty) Hijri [roughly, if I’m not mistaken either the 11 or 12 Rabi’ul Awwal] in the land of Janab Saleem Sahib for a blessed initiative, indeed a great initiative, that of the laying of the foundation stone of our first mosque in the Tamil Nadu State of India. By the immense grace of Allah, Allah has inspired the heart of your brother and his family members to donate a piece of his land for the construction of a mosque, and Insha-Allah, the name of the Mosque shall be: Siraj-um-Munir Mosque. Fortunate are those who have the means and ability, through their sacrifices, all for the sake of Allah to dedicate a part of their properties and wealth for the cause of Allah. It is indeed a lofty (highly approved) initiative in the sight of Allah.

For every good deed, there should always be a pure intention, and one of the best deed is the donation of lands and finances also for the construction of the Houses of Allah, i.e. the mosques of Islam.

Allah says in the Holy Quran: “There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of standing forth (for prayer) therein.” (At-Tawba, 9: 108).
