Question

I read the article about the Nakshbandiah. I am a university student and the only Islamic lecture that is being held near my university is the Nakshbandi one. I have attended a few of them and I have realized that what you have mentioned in your article is right. However, my question is it better for me not to attend their lectures and instead study Islam on my own from authentic books? Or should I attend them and pick the good things from their gatherings and leave out the wrong stuff?

Answer

Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the World; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions.

We advise you to read beneficial Islamic books and listen to useful Islamic lectures. Avoid the Nakshbandhi lectures since they consist of myths and deviation. Perhaps they mention deviant matters in their lectures that may have bad influence upon your faith. Thus, you become tempted in your religion and go out of the path of your Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) and the good ancestors.
We ask Allah to make you and us steadfast on the truth.
Allah knows best.
