The Tablighi Jama’at was founded by Shaikh Muhammad Ilyas (1886-1994) in 1927. The shaikh noticed that the Muslims in India weren’t performing their Islamic duties properly and in many cases were totally ignorant of them. This ignorance extended even to the declaration of faith/first pillar of Islam. Thus, he devised this movement as a teaching vehicle/dawah method for the benefit of the Muslims.

According to the book, Life And Mission Of Maulana Mohammad Ilyas,the gist of this movement is as follows:

1. To teach and promote the essentials of Islamic faith and practice.
2. The pursuit of perfection in emulating every teaching of the Prophet (PBUH).
3. To travel in order to spread the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH) to all parts of the world.

Please note: There are issues that arise in almost everything. In order to get an accurate picture of this movement, it’s important to judge it by its foundation and not the actions/mistakes of some misguided people.

Apparently, according to the book about Maulana Ilyas - he was in Medina when he dreamt the Prophet Muhammad PBUH asked him to establish tablighi jamaat.
