I'm getting ready for jamaat, this weekend, for the 3rd time :smile:
I'm going with my mom and dad and I'm soooo excited!!
The second time I went, I was hoping the third time would be with a husband..... unfortunately, it aint so...:( ....but maybe the forth time insha Allah.
It's like the most peaceful 72 hours... away from the drama of everyday life...
It's going to be soooo:awesome:



So have anyone ever been to 3 days jamaat before?

I'm not sure of the correct definition, but it is time spent in the path of Allah teaching and learning about islam. Be it 3 days, 40 days, 4 months or more. Women have to go with a mahrem. They stay separate from the men though. It's a real life changing time for me, from experience.

it is when you go away for a few days (3 days, 40 days etc) and all they do is read from their Fazail Amal. my friend told me that they dont let you have your own time to read the quran, or to do your own stuff. They focus more on their Fazail Amal then the quran and sunnah.

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about that and he said:

Usually in every issue there are two extremes and a middle way. Some people praise this group a great deal and encourage going out with them; others condemn them a great deal and warn against them more than they would warn you about a lion. And some people tread a middle path between those two extremes.

I think that there is some good in this group; they call others to Islam and have a clear influence that no other daa’iyahs have had. How many kaafirs have become believers at their hands, and how many evildoers has Allaah guided through them?

Moreover they have an attitude of humility and selflessness that is not found in many others.

Some people say that they have no knowledge of hadeeth, and so on.

They are undoubtedly good people, but I think that those of them who are in Saudi do not go to Pakistan or other countries, and we do not know anything about the ‘aqeedah of those people (in other countries) or their manhaj (methodology). But there is nothing wrong with the manhaj followed by our companions here in Saudi.

With regard to limiting da’wah to three or four days, or to two or four or six months, or two years, there is no shar’i evidence for that. But they think that this has to do with organization. If a person goes out for three days, and knows that he is limited to these three days, he will focus his mind and forget about worldly matters. This is the matter of organization, and is not an act of worship or a matter of sharee’ah.

I think, may Allaah bless you, that if you have the opportunity to seek knowledge then it is better to do that, because seeking knowledge is good and the people nowadays have a great need for scholars who have knowledge of the Sunnah and who are well-versed in knowledge. If you are not able to seek knowledge, and you go out with them in order to purify yourself, there is nothing wrong with that. There are many people whom Allaah has guided at their hands.

Al-Baab al-Maftooh, no. 10, P. 304.
