1.    What is the Sharia Status of  Tablighi Jamaat (and its work),  is it Fardh, is it Waajib, is it Mustahab.
2.    If a person has a little free time and he has a choice to either go to attend Tablighi Aamaal or to help her wife and parents at home especially when the kids are small, and he is not in a position to have a female servant or any helper who can help their family members. As per Shariyat Which one should he give preference?
3.    If a person has a time to attend Tablighi Jamaat and Tablighi Aamaal but still he does not attend either of Tablighi Aamaal, he consider it as one of the Islamic Work and tells I do not have Munasibat with this work, I do support it, but I will do the Deeni work by other means. Is he a Sinner as per Shariyat?

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the mopst Merciful

The answer to your question is as follows:

Going to attend Islahi and tablighi Amaal, so that you can lead rest of your life according to Islamic teachings, is indeed a virtuous job. But if your parents are in need of your services, you have to take full care of them being at home and acting upon the faraiz and mandatory works. And when you have free time you can go for jamat too. Join the Jamat only with the intention of purifying yourself rather than others.

If you have free time and do not want to join tablighi jamat, rather you want to do another good deed or join another Islahi Jamat, then there is no problem in it too. But you must be very sincere about your Islah and inner purification.

And Allah knows best!
