Question ID: 34007

As-salaamu ‘Alaykum.
Respected Mufti Sahab! I am confused regarding the meanings of few terms. I want to understand the difference between them. To make my point clear, I am writing my problem in form of following questions:
1. What is the difference between lughvi and shari meaning of the term “tabligh”.
2. What is the meaning of “tazkeer”? Please clarify the difference between “tabligh” and “tazkeer”.
3. I listened ulama says that the work of tablighi jamaat is tazkeer, then why don’t we call it tazkeeri jamaat?
4. An Islamic scholar says, “The shari meaning of tabligh is “tableegh al-Islam alal kuffar (to propagate Islam to non-believers). When we refer to the work of tablighi jamaat i.e. tazkeer as tabligh, then we use the lughvi meaning of tabligh.” Is he saying correct.

Please answer these question so that the meaning of tabligh and tazkeer be cleared to me.

Tabligh means to convey even if it be one piece of information to a Muslim or Non-Muslim.
Tazkeer means to remind. Reminding can be done to Muslims or Non-Muslims.
