Asslamo Allaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Alhumdolillah, Allah (SWT) gave Junaid Jamshed Hidaya to move away from Vital Signs and embark upon the Journey of following the noble Sunnah of Rasul-ullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) nearly 2 decades ago. Masha’Allah for over 20 years many have been inspired by Junaid Jamshed to come to the Deen of Allah (SWT).
However, the graph of Junaid Jamshed (as far following) the Sunnah is concerned has been steadily declining for over a decade. Many Muslims chose to (and still choosing to) give him benefit of the doubt and we should continue to raise our hands in supplication for our noble and respected Brother.
However, I had a conversation with a leading Scholar (who is also a friend of Junaid Jamshed) and his attitude truly upset me. This same Scholar wanted me to campaign against a famous Da’ee in the West because in his opinion this person is a “Halafi”. Junaid Jamshed may be a “Hanafi” but his public sins are of a far serious nature.
First I thought that maybe our noble Maulana may be had no knowledge about the matter but to my astonishment, he did. Maulana’s response (if stripped) of all irrelevancies as that Junaid Jamshed is connected to the Ulama of Deoband and this is the problem.
Ulama of Deoband sacrificed their lives for this Deen and for the fulfilment of Sunnah. Junaid Jamshed is NOT a new Muslim, he is NOT an ignorant Muslim (despite his youtube dramatics) and he is FREE to do what he wishes but his ACTIONS should not be reflected upon those who are affiliated with Deoband or the Tableeghi Jamaat.
I ask EVERYONE who is associated with Brand “Junaid Jamshed” as to why despite knowing very clearly what he is doing they still chose to promote him? Are his actions not in clear contradiction to the Sunnah? I am not asking anyone to curse or dishonour him but I am expecting those who wish to uphold the Sunnah to distance themselves from him and his action UNTIL he chooses to extricate himself from actions which are in complete and contradiction to the Sunnah of Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
Before writing this blog I have done my due diligence and my conclusions indicate:
- Junaid Jamshed is under no financial difficulty or duress to be doing what he is doing
- Junaid Jamshed is no longer listening to the Ulama who have been trying to advise him about his actions.
Junaid Jamshed Fan Club is carrying on as normal where they wilfully and deliberately label everyone who points to his action (contrary to the Sunnah) as hate, biased, lacking wisdom etc and to be honest I don’t really care about his Fan Club. My appeal is to everyone who has Love for the Sunnah in his heart and honour for Ulama of Deoband to OPEN his or her eyes and take a look at some of this material.

Junaid Jamshed 2012 (ISNA)
Junaid Jamshed (2015) Official Pakistan Air Force Song
Junaid Jamshed (2015) Chand SItara with Junoon (Making the Song)
Junaid Jamshed (2015) Chand Sitara Song
Then we have a series of Sponsorship deals under his brand JJ such as Karachi Blues Cricket Team.
Those who are looking for information and actions of Junaid Jamshed can easily find hundreds of items which are IN DIRECT conflict with Sunnah. Again, what he does is his business entirely but he is able to do these things and get away with it due to a band of DEOBANDEES who organise his shows, purhase his merchandise and assist in his Tours.
Its time you put loyalty of Allah (SWT) & His Rasool (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) ABOVE Junaid Jamshed.
There are many Da'ees around the world whom DEOBANDEES issue warnings against simply because the person is NOT following Hanafi Madhab while Junaid Jamshed is clearly involved in Haram, publicly and without regret.
The world watches and more importantly, Allah (SWT) watches what you do.
08DEC2016: Our honourable Brother passed away yesterday. May Allah Ta'ala forgive his sins and grant him Jannatul-Firdaus (Ameen). He passed away in the path of Allah, Masha'Allah
